Thump In The Morning

Weekdays 5am - 10am Saturdays 5am - 10am

DJ Thump is embarking on a new lifestyle health journey and he wants to share it with you. This new expedition is not going to be easy but will show you that anything is possible with a relentless attitude, positive mindset and persistent drive.

Thump signed up at a local gym to work on his physical and mental fitness. Monday, May 16, marked the first intense gym session which left our morning show host sore but extremely motivated. He is working one-on-one with a trainer to better his life.

Thump has set up a work-out schedule which includes going to the gym five days a week, a sustainable meal plan and a set of boundaries within himself. His trainer curates weekday workout practices specifically for his well being. One quote that keeps our favorite DJ motivated is, “He that is making excuses is seldom good for anything else.” – Benjamin Franklin. Growing up as a football player, Thump is not a stranger to the fitness rise and grind. Though he endured a knee injury early on his career he still persevered in sharing his talents with the world.

As life goes on we all have fallen into the hustle of working, raising a family while balancing everything else and Thump has decided to put himself first. We commend Thump on his choice to make himself better and we are excited to see where his new ride will take him.

Thumps wife Angel, is very supportive with his new life change and is helping with his meal prepping and beverage intake. We hope that you find inspiration in DJ Thump‘s journey. The Jammin’ 105.7 family is cheering him on with support and love.

*** Please be advised that everyone’s body is different. DJ Thumps plan was created for his personal journey. Please reach out to a health professional before attempting any new fitness routines or trying any dietary changes.

  • Week One: Thump Starts With A Bang

    Fitness Journey With Thump: Week One Starts With A Bang

     

    After this first week of workouts, I continually fell into a deep coma-like state of sleep. This week was very challenging. My body was beyond soar but pressure makes diamonds, and this is my mindset.

    This lifestyle change is not as bad as I thought. I’m learning to eat better as I work off the extra pounds. My body is getting use to the weekly workouts, and I am actually sleeping better. Therefore, I’m getting better rest and my days are more productive.

    As this week comes to a close, I look forward to seeing my progress, new challenges and accomplishments for next week. Let’s GO!

  • Week 2 of My Fitness Journey

    So, this is my week 2. And to be honest, I really want to give up! (Just kidding.) I have come such a long way in just one week. My muscles are no longer fighting with me due to me drinking a BCAA ( Block Chain Amino Acids) drink after I work out, which helps repair the muscles.  What’s crazy is I can feel results already. My eating habits have changed tremendously. I no longer eat red meat, processed foods, and I have completely stopped drinking sodas. One step at a time is my motto. I want to keep this as realistic as possible so I can stay dedicated. This week’s workout was killer, and I was pushed to the max. Next week, I won’t be in the gym as much because I’ll be broadcasting LIVE from Disneyland.

  • Week 3: Every Little Step I Take Counts

    So week 3  was really a challenge. I was at Disneyland and of course it was very hard to find healthy food there. after all it is the happiest place on earth…”FOR KIDS.” I thought it would be cool to have a cheat day and eat a  fried and processed meal. my stomach turned into Jurassic Park and attacked every thing inside of me.  I thought they were going to have to shut Disneyland down because I almost did not make it to the rest room.  It’s amazing how your stomach will reject unhealthy foods once you stop eating it. However even though I didn’t go to the gym that weekend I was able to get plenty of exercise by walking around that park. I averaged about 19,000 steps a day, burning almost 2,000 calories. So now I am even more conscious of getting extra steps in even when I am not at the gym. I park further away from the grocery store just so I can get that extra work out in. In the words of Bobby Brown “Every Little Step I Take” counts!

  • week 4: Hard Work Pays Off

    DJ Thump

    It’s been 4 weeks of working hard 4 days a week. But when you start seeing and feeling the results it makes all the body aches and pain so worth it.  Week 1, I could barely do 10 push ups (don’t judge me). Now I can do 20 push ups without struggling. I went down 1 pant size, and I’ve lost 9 lbs. “I FEEL GREAT.”

    Hard work is paying off. I have to thank my trainer Heaven Fennell for not allowing me to slack! “Excuses are tools used by fools to build monuments of nothing!” I am determined to live better. my eating habits have changed tremendously. A big percentage of my results comes from what I put in my body. You are what you eat!
