Demonstrating simple takeaways that members can incorporate into their daily lives, he shares how to get the maximum value out of simple workouts, including high-intensity interval training (HIIT) and conditioning and mobility, that require little to no equipment and can be done at home without the need for a gym. He also shares his signature philosophy, The Ocho System, which blends mindful eating with pragmatic mental models coupled with positivity and effective workouts to promote an elevated, healthy lifestyle in an approachable and accessible way. Holder’s class goes beyond helping members look good and focuses on the “why” of working out, rooted in scientific observations of what actually works. He also provides fun food insights for members to get the most out of what they eat, outlining recovery strategies and emphasizing the importance of listening to their bodies. Holder’s foundational health approach will leave members feeling confident in their own skin and motivated to kick-start their fitness journey.
As a celebrity fitness coach, Nike Master Trainer, fitness and wellness columnist for GQ magazine, and consultant to some of the world’s top companies, Holder and his broad approach to wellness have been key factors in changing the lives of people around the world. Holder began his ascent in the wellness space while attending the University of Pennsylvania.

Holder began self-healing and researching training protocols he channeled into The Ocho System philosophy with the persistence of these issues. He also understood that these strategies should be made simple and accessible to everyone regardless of economic status. Challenging traditional notions of contemporary fitness, this innovative system underscores the value of understanding exercise, diet, mentality, and social impact as interrelated facets of wellness.
