Fabian Griffith applauded politely as the winners of the 2018 Next Olympic Hopeful competition were announced at the U.S. Olympic Committee training center in Colorado Springs, Colorado. It had been a series of grueling assessments at altitude. It was a little bit of a shock when he got the invitation to the finals, and as he clapped for his fellow athletes, he almost didn’t hear that his name had been called to train with Team USA Bobsled and Skeleton.
As he continues to follow the team training regimen, Griffith also works as a personal trainer at 24 Hour Fitness Apple Valley Super-Sport Gym. He experienced homelessness as a child, and the disappointment of season-ending injuries in his senior year of high school. He also has the love and support of parents who still write him motivational messages on the refrigerator whiteboard. That could be why Griffith is adept at turning up the determination when he sets his mind to competition, as well as—in his words—bringing more love and the belief that his clients can do what they set their minds to do.
24Life asked Griffith to design a workout for spring, and his 30-minute routine incorporating the TRX Suspension Trainer, body weight and weighted movements will get you going toward your goals under your own steam.
