Hines Fit is open for business!
Schuylkill River’s John Hines has recently launched his fitness brand alongside some of his family members. We’ve asked John a few questions so that you can decide if Hines Fit is right for you. Find them on Instagram at hinesfit or e-mail John at hinesjohnathan14(at)yahoo.com to get started!
1. So what exactly is Hines Fit?
Hines fit is a movement thought up while we (me, my brother Vaughn and my cousin Rajohn) were doing Uncle Rob Fitness (which is a workout series at my Uncle Rob’s home gym). We’ve been talking about it for a while and I just decided to make it a reality.
2. Who is involved with Hines Fit?
So far on the team we have me, Vaughn and Rajohn. You can actually even include uncle Rob because he’s a Hines and he always posts that he’s active and working. We are a growing team, Vaughn had his first client recently and we have a few prospective clients. We are looking for even more members to further push and build the movement and brand.
3. What are your credentials?
We don’t have any schooling credentials but we have plenty of experience. I’ve been working out since about 2013 and I also was the strength and conditioning coach of St. Bonaventure University’s women’s rugby team in the 2014 season (state champs!!). Vaughn has been lifting since about 2014, his freshman year of High school, with the St. Joe’s Prep football team. He’s been super enthusiastic about working out since he’s gotten the first of his gains and even pushed himself further than the already rigorous football workout routines. Rajohn’s been working out for a while now. He and his wife weren’t happy with how they looked and felt and they decided to jump head first into the health and fitness world to continue their progress and to help others.
4. What’s the pricing structure for Hines Fit?
Right now, we’re starting small. We do personal training sessions for $10 per hour and we do group sessions at the gym and even outside, when the weather is nice, for $10 per person. This is distance specific as defined below.
5. Where are you located?
We travel to accommodate to our trainees because we want to reach as many people as possible, however, our home gyms are Planet fitness on 24th and Oregon Ave, Planet fitness on Island and Lindbergh Blvd and also, for LA fitness members, LA fitness on 24th and Oregon.
6. What services are provided?
At the moment we only really advertise workouts and training but we’re working on dietary advice and movement apparel.
7. Do you travel to clients, and if so, what’s the fee?
As stated above, we do travel to our trainees if need be. The rate is $5 for travels between 35 and 49 minutes and $10 for anything exceeding 50 minutes.
8. What is your fitness philosophy?
My fitness philosophy isI just encouraging others to always strive to be a better version of themselves. Fitness is a great representation of that because during your fitness journey you can learn important attributes like patience and perseverance, which carry over into other facets of your life.
9. It’s a good thing you’ve been spending so much time getting fit because I hear you’re going to be in a movie pretty soon about the North Philadelphia Nomads U19 rugby team. Tell us a little about that.
The Nomads movie is gonna be so awesome! I’m having so much fun being a part of this project! Anywho, I’m just a Special Abilities Extra (I prefer Rugby Extraordinaire). That’s all I can really say at the moment, as that’s all I know.
