unleash the power within, be courageous and believe in your possibilities... then work to achieve them
"The DF ADVANTAGE class has made an enthusiastic impact on members; trying new lifts, styles of exercise, and most of all learning quality movements to benefit them in everyday life/activities. Members have shared how "different" this style of class is for them, but "different in a great way!" Coach Ang
IS what you are doing today getting you closer to where you want to be?
"This past month in group fitness classes we have started putting the puzzle pieces together to create a year of achievements. By going back to the basics, there has been a significant improvement in exercise form and technique. This is what I have noticed....
An individual who has been unable to squat without rounding their back for years has now perfected their form. Another has gained the confidence to not only come to class but now to be vocal and interact with others during class. Individuals have been willing to step out of their comfort zones and try something new and trust that it will help them long term even if it means dialing down the intensity sometimes. The enthusiasm to learn and better understand exercise has been awesome!!" Coach Sage
WHEN WE support one another... incredible things happen!
"This months DF Burn classes were energetic. It was clear my people were ready to attack their New Years fitness goals! I was happy to see some new faces and even happier to see the team made them feel welcome by encouraging them along the way! I love coaching and training along-side my team!" Coach Kim
"If you don't act, you'll never fail...but you'll never achieve anything worthwhile"
WOW! I love the new DF Fusion and have found it has been well received by my team! We are able to get a full total body workout in, safely and effectively, and make adjustments for any modifications along the way! —I have noticed a huge change in Denise this month. In the past, she had two “problem” areas. One being the shoulder area. Since adding the flexibility aspect along with the controlled movements she is able to all of her exercises pain free rather than doing a modified version. Additionally, since we’ve introduced the balance into class and have been doing many of our exercises on a single leg her squats have greatly improved. Her knees are not turning in when she comes up anymore. I also feel this can be contributed to the mind-muscle connection that we’ve been working on. The more focus we put into using the proper muscles, with the proper mechanics, the more muscle activate, therefore our return for this focus is improved results!
Where focus goes, energy flows!
For Spin— The console! I can't say enough about the console! My class is really seeing a big difference in the effort they were putting forth compared to what they are now... workouts have become so much more effective! The console has made us aware that we weren't working at required intensities, or at our potentials. Sprints are better controlled, hills are steeper, and overall effort is more rewarding! I'd like to give a shout out to Karen H as she has really been she’s really been working hard and made great progress! " Coach Nicki
"WHILE IT MAY SEEM SMALL, THE RIPPLE EFFECTS OF SMALL THINGS IS EXTRAORDINARY." Mark Bevin
"The positive energy around the gym continues to be contagious! The willingness to try new exercises, welcome new faces, explore new possibilities is apparent. Thank you to our extraordinary team. Overall, January was a great month of many small accomplishments! My 6am DFBURN class completed the progressive program for January, each class built on the previous one. The Building Better Bodies and Special Pops, most being over the age of 60, ALWAYS shows up with an enthusiasm and excitement to build better flexibility, balance, bone & muscle strength, heart health and mental health. The crosstrain classes are amazing; always welcoming new faces, always encouraging one another, always striving to complete each workout the best they can that day, so they leave a little better than when they walked in! The know their efforts prepare them to face any challenge that life puts in their way. I was asked to define my "piano effect," meaning what makes us stand out from the others... my response was the supportive, friendly, welcoming "energy" or environment created over the past fifteen years through a genuine desire to help our team believe in the possibilities that reside within themselves, and inspire confidence, hope and courage to achieve more; a healthier, happier version of who they are: ultimately the best version of who they are born to be! This environment is not only created by me, it is all of us collectively that make us who we are! Let's go team! Here is to a Fantastic February filled with love for thy self, and respect for all! Everyday is a gift, I am learning, and to be able to get to work with you is inspiring and uplifting! " Coach Kerri
