By helping clients overcome their seemingly lofty fitness goals, The Underground Lab trainer Fernando Rodriguez fulfills a personal passion for helping others towards health. All of the boot camps that stack The Underground’s schedule juggle both classic and innovative techniques, and each session lassos exercisers of equal ability to perform a suitable routine. In classes that run for 45 to 60 minutes, students work through moves that mirror real-life movements, such as squats that mimic the lifting of heavy groceries or calf raises that mimic the lifting of heavy baby cows. Trainers intensify these functional routines with weights and multiple reps in order to tone muscles, torch calories, center balance, and improve pliability. After attending a session at The Underground, exercisers are welcome to stick around at the gym to further pique personal fitness or declare a staring contest re-match against the undefeated treadmill.
The Underground Lab
Since the age of 6, Fernando Rodriguez knew that fitness and athletics would play a big role in his life. While most kids his age were busy at play, Fernando was swimming four hours each day and eagerly counting the hours until his next meet. His hard work paid off, earning him a spot on the Mexican Olympic swim team and instilling him with a passion for fitness that would continue into his adult life.
Today, Fernando draws from his years of athletic and coaching experience to guide others toward their fitness goals in his own private training studio, The Underground Lab. Alongside his staff of fellow certified trainers and fitness aficionados, Fernando leads group workouts that combine traditional exercises with imaginative and innovative techniques. The team also conducts personal-training sessions, employing a variety of cardio and strength-training equipment, and designs a unique 19-day nutrition program to help clients lose weight rapidly in preparation for special events, such as a wedding or an outing in a flimsy rowboat.
