Getting Fit At Home…Online!

Getting healthy and staying motivated is difficult. Many of us struggle finding a workout routine that we can stick to. Belizean fitness coach, Joel McD, has embarked on a brand new initiative to bring specialized fitness training accessible by every Belizean right at home. He has designed and launched a free online fitness program that he hopes will allow all Belizeans to take charge of their own personal fitness goals.

“For the past two years as a personal trainer I realize the level of dependency that my clients had on me what I want them to know is that there comes a time when they must take over their own personal health and fitness. So what I did is I created the EX5. 2.53”


The EX5. A workout program accessible to all Belizeans. It’s a radical shift;because personal trainers are often sought after for individualized attention and specially designed programs. But Joel wants to change that. He feels that everyone can become their own personal trainer.


Joel McD

“I’m just leaving the idea that you need me. That’s what I’m leaving behind because you can do this on your own. You see a trainer is like a teacher, we simply provide you the information you need so you can go off on your own. The EX5 is pretty simple. There are five characters which you can choose. Each provides a different workout every day of the week for you to do. Each one of the characters have their approach to fitness. You simply choose a character to devote to for your workouts or choose a new one every day. So the five characters do workouts that I do myself. The first character is DAVIE he does no equipment workout. Then there is VEELA, she does outdoor workouts – minimum to no equipment at all. Then there is JAYDA she does yoga inspired workouts for days you are late to the office and can’t make it to the gym and you just want to relaxing calm workout but still want to stick to your workout routine; then do one of Jayda’s workouts. Then there is JULIAN who is the gym guy whenever you need strength training, go to him. And then there is TRAVIS for the beginners. So there is something for everyone. Easy enough for anyone to do.”


And how does he make it accessible to Belizeans? Well, the Ex5 is posted on Joel’s website:

“As a trainer I realize I am limited to only a certain number of clients. Putting it online allows me to reach a wider audience. All I want for Belize today, is that through the EX5, is for them to understand is that they can take lead of their lives and pretty much do anything on their own especially when it comes to their health & fitness. They will continue to be free for as long as the EX5 exist. But if you need that extra support from me still with the drive that you will do that on your own. I came up with the EX5 challenge which begins on August 4, which is a 60day build-your-best-self challenge.”


The 60day challenge does carry a cost; but completely optional, which means you still opt to log on each day for your daily Ex5 workouts by Joel McDfor free from anywhere.


Joel McD

“You can get a perfect workout experience, whether you are travelling, you’re at the park at the gym, even if you are home bound. There is a workout you can do with the Ex5. I really want to see more Belizeans actively involved in their own fitness. Taking advantage of the fact that they can make anything happen for themselves. Through the EX5 that’s exactly what they can do.”
