A fitness trainer who has worked with the likes of LeBron James, Tiger Woods and Serena Williams has revealed how he has been able to improve his clients’ performance by training in different gyms.
“They are all very different in terms of their body types, their training styles and the physicality of their workout,” Mr Vetter said.
The gym trainer and personal trainer said he had “a huge love and respect” for the athletes.
“If they have had a tough workout, they’ll come to me and I’ll help them through it,” he said.
Mr Vetter was one of the first trainers to bring the idea of training in the jungle gym to the mainstream.
In 2016, he worked with Serena in the Bora Bora mountains in Indonesia, the first time an elite athlete had trained in such a place.
“Serena and I are a lot alike, we both love the jungle, we’re both very strong, but we also have different training styles,” he told news.com.au.
He added that his clients enjoyed working out in the forest.
“They love the tropical environment and I love the trees and the jungle,” he explained.
Mr Vater said the “great benefit” of training at a jungle gym was that there was no need for clients to wear masks.
“When you get to the gym and you see the guys, you see their bodies, they don’t need to cover their face,” he added.

At a time when people are becoming more conscious about their health and fitness, Mr Vater’s advice for those looking to get fit has been gaining a lot of traction.
A new study from the University of Queensland and the University Of Melbourne found that when it came to training in a jungle environment, there was a greater focus on cardiovascular and neuromuscular fitness.
According to the researchers, “these results show that exercise is positively associated with neuromotor health and that exercise training can enhance neuromouscular health.”
The researchers also found that the greater the intensity and the intensity of the exercise, the greater was the impact on the heart.
“The findings suggest that a higher intensity of exercise training is beneficial for cardiovascular health, but also for neuromotion health,” they wrote.
There was also an increase in the body’s production of creatine kinase, which is involved in the breakdown of fats.
But Mr Veter says the benefits of working out at a gym were less about cardio and more about getting fit.
It was not only about the physical benefits of training, but the mental aspect too, he said, adding that it was important to stay mentally fit as well.
