Franz Gillezeau is a Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist and he’s also Editor-in-Chief of Hybrid Magazine. Naturally, he’s got a pretty busy schedule and it includes a lot of fitness activities, but this South-based personal trainer still finds time to have a little bit of fun. Check out some of his most common diversions in and around his hometown of San Fernando.

MORNING FITNESS ROUTINE

1

My morning run consists of a 5km circuit to San Fernando Hill and back home then I head to work at Quarter Turn Ltd. where I am a manager.

 

AFTERNOON FITNESS ROUTINE

2

The next ritual for the day is my lunchtime workout at the Fitness Zone Gym in Gulf City Mall. Once that’s finished I typically spend the rest of the day there training my clients. Sometimes in between clients I’ll head downstairs to Nigel R. Khan to browse the shelves and pick up a book or two.

 

SPORTS

3Every Wednesday evening and Saturday morning I practice Taekwon-Do at Wolverine Taekwon-Do. If I happen to have another free evening during the week I play football at the park in St. Joseph Village and on the weekends I’ll play tennis at Guaracara Park.

 

LUNCH

4

The best way to start the day is having breakfast in the comfort of my own home, but I have no problem venturing beyond my kitchen for other meals. My favourite healthy lunch is cassava fries and stuffed chicken breast from Nichossa Bakery & Cafe.

 

DINNER

5

I love Palki’s Restaurant for dinner. It’s authentic Indian cuisine so I don’t always know the names of the dishes I’m eating *laugh-out-loud* but the food is delicious, the service is great (the chef usually comes to check that everything is going well) and the prices are good.

 

ERRANDS

6

My schedule is pretty hectic but when I do get a chance to run errands they usually revolve around food. For instance, my pre-workout meal is usually a couple of whole wheat turkey sandwiches made from scratch so I usually pick up the bread at Puff ‘N Stuff Bakery and I get the turkey slices from the deli at PriceSmart.

 

DOWN TIME 

7

I’m not the biggest limer but if I happen to go out for drinks my destination depends on the vibe I’m looking for. On Deck Pub offers a nice casual atmosphere but its a regular haunt of mine because it serves my favourite rum – El Dorado 15 years. And Dream Lounge is the best high-end lounge in South Trinidad so its where I go when I’m in the mood to get dressed up and really step out. If the spirit moves me I’ll head over to Metro Nightlife afterwards to finish off the night.
