In an effort to keep gym goers and fitness enthusiasts engaged with their health, Diego de Vera, owner of Miami’s KO Zone, continues to update his gym’s social media account with motivational content.
Not sure what to do while quarantined and practicing social distancing? Check out KO Zone’s Instagram page. There, in the highlight section is a tab labeled “workouts” where you’ll find a number of exercises to ramp up your home workout. You may need to improvise when it comes to equipment, but if you have the basics, prepare yourself for a serious burn!
If anyone can get you to work up a sweat, it’s de Vera, a military veteran and former professional fighter.
De Vera is a licensed American Fitness Professionals and Associates certified personal trainer as well as an International Sports Sciences Association Strength and Conditioning Specialist. In addition to teaching combat fitness, he’s also a powerlifting and Crossfit instructor, so it should be no surprise KO Zone, which opened in 2007 to teach Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, boxing, kickboxing, Mixed Martial Arts and Muay Thai, also has an expansive section for weight training.
For now, the gym has closed its doors due to social distancing and quarantine orders, but de Vera and the rest of his training staff eagerly awaits the day when they can welcome back members of their KO Zone family.
