At age 18, Hadj Gill was a professional boxer with a 33-1 fight record in North America. He spent nine years in the pro circuit before seguing his boxing experience into a new athletic career: personal training. Gill inspires other athletes with the same motivational techniques that kept him competitive on the circuit, tweaking his boxing workouts to incorporate plyometrics moves that help build fast-twitch muscle. These tweaks have evolved into his signature workout system, Grind, which he teaches at Grind Athletix. Grind workouts focus on speed-training, cardio, or lower-body-toning plyometrics, such as lunges, hops, and other explosive movements that emulate the feeling of leaping away from a snake pit. Gill motivates his charges by working out right next to them and switches routines up in order to stave off workout boredom.
