What an incredible year 2019 has been with our Women's Group Training!

I am so proud of the women who come from all fitness backgrounds, push out of their comfort zones, and complete things in our gym they never thought possible.

I am so proud of the support and friendships that have been built through our Women's Group Program. 

I am so proud of the ladies who have made their fitness and health a priority. 

These are the exact reasons why we created this program here at Dynamic. 

We know many women want to look and feel better.

We know they want to get into a consistent workout routine.

We also know that many emotions go into starting something new like joining a gym.

Nervousness. 

Intimidation. 

Confusion.

Even embarrassment.

As you will see in the stories below, the women that join our Women's Group and our biggest transformations felt the exact same way before starting. 

Most were brand new to working out and had never done a program like ours. 

Just like these women have stepped out of their comfort zones and made the decision to join our Women's Group training to better themselves, so can you! 💪 

There are still three months until next year! Don't wait for a resolution to get started. 

Let's make the rest of 2019 the happiest and healthiest year for you yet!

Check out our incredible Women's Group Transformations below! 

Meet Stacey - Down 60lbs!

"At first I experienced the usual "will I be able to do it" fear, but within the first few classes, I knew I could do it. 

The trainers give you a lot of support and motivation. 

No one ever makes you feel silly for not being able to do an exercise or for not doing it correctly.

My clothes that I had before do NOT fit - everything is too big. 

Even some of the newer clothes that I have bought during the past few months are too big now. 

It is strange buying clothes in smaller sizes, as I have worn a larger size for so long. 

The confidence that it gives you is immeasurable!"

Meet Dawn - Down 100lbs!

"Since joining DSC, I have lost 100lbs pounds and 6 pant sizes!

I love everyone at DSC, they are all so smart and supportive, and never judgmental. 

I've met some great people there in the other members and have made several great new friends along the way. 

The other members are all so supportive too, and I've NEVER felt like I don't belong there, even when I was brand new to working out.

DSC has not only helped me physically, but I have more confidence in myself than I've had in years because I just feel so much better about myself.

The biggest impact DSC has had on me is the overall lifestyle change. I do things now I NEVER thought I'd do, like 5K's and obstacle challenges."

Meet Shelley - Down 65lbs!

"I remember walking in a bit early the first night with my heart racing, wondering what I had done, but that uncertainty was gone very quickly. 

Coach Matt and Renee were amazing!

They made me feel comfortable and by the end of the class confident that they would help me conquer my fears and work toward my goals of weight loss and better health.  

The women in the group are fabulous with so much positivity and support for one another.  

We entered class as strangers and have become friends and a support system for one another. 

Any bad day can be turned around by heading to DSC; it's impossible to stay in a funk once you are there!

Since starting at DSC I have lost 65 pounds and become a much stronger person!"

Meet Hope - Down 53lbs!

"I had joined a few popular gyms in Manchester and Londonderry. 

I did not last long at the places I tried and I saw no results from attending them though.

I think part of that is because I had no training, support, or real guidance on what I needed to do in order to see results. 

I then saw a post on Facebook about a Women’s Group Program at DSC so decided to message them. 

The minute I stepped into DSC all my fears were forgotten. 

The staff is AWESOME!

They are there for you and make you feel comfortable from the first moment you walk in.

I am so excited to announce that I am now down 53lbs and have dropped 4 pant sizes! My cholesterol was 365, it is now 190! I now have muscles in my arms and can lift a lot more than I used to."

Meet Sara - Down 50lbs!

"Before DSC, I was at a loss for what to do and how or where to even start when it came to creating a healthier lifestyle, but I also knew something had to change. 

I was sedentary and felt stuck.

Fast forwarding to now, I go to DSC four times a week, have lost 50lbs, gone down pant sizes, and gained muscle!

I am the happiest I've ever been!" 

Meet Kim - Down 45lbs!

"I LOVE DSC’S Women’s Group!

The program has given me so much self-confidence and it has made me believe in myself! 

I am willing to try any of the workouts now and know that it is ok if you can’t do something like someone else.

The trainers are right there with you to show you an alternate way that works for you and still allows you to have an awesome workout.

Since joining DSC I have lost 45lbs! I have gone from a size 20 to a size 12!"

Meet Deb - Down 90lbs!

"My routine always consisted of the same old boring treadmill, stair-climber and maybe some weight machines. 

I would quickly lose interest and motivation so I would switch to another gym thinking maybe that gym had what I was looking for. 

This vicious cycle lasted 23 years with the fear that I'll never accomplish what I need to or loose the weight, gain self-confidence and have a sense of pride in myself again.

During my first class I had all sorts of emotions. 

At first, I was scared, embarrassed and afraid of failure, but I was also excited. 

I was hooked after that first class.

I have lost over 90lbs and over 30 inches and have gained more strength, stamina and confidence. 

This is what I have been looking for all these years!"  

Meet Jen - Down 22lbs!

"I was nervous that I was going to be so out of shape. 

After that first class my body ached everywhere for the next 2 days, but I instantly fell in love with DSC and everyone there!

The #1 thing I was looking for was a knowledgeable, personable coach who would pay attention to my progress and make the workouts fun. 

Little did I know I would get several of them! 

I knew this would be my new gym immediately and I had found my new "home".

In the last 8 months, I’ve lost 22 lbs and dropped 2 pant sizes (almost a third!)

I have so much energy and I am amazed by my increased strength to do things I haven’t done since high school."

Meet Donna - Down 31lbs!

"Once I gained so much weight, I found it more and more difficult to get back on track and did not have much energy.

When I joined DSC I was hoping it would help me to get in a consistent exercise routine. 

I initially went two days a week, then upped it to 3, then 4 and then May 1st joined the 6:00 AM Adult Group for unlimited days. I started the Nutrition Program in May as well as the next step towards reaching my goals. 

I consistently now go to the gym 5 days most weeks. 

Between exercising regularly and doing the nutrition program I am down 31 pounds!"

Meet Mary - Down 45lbs!

"Heading into my first night at DSC, I was having second thoughts about coming. 

I was afraid and kept thinking things like, "Am I too old for this?", "Am I going to make a fool of myself?" or "Am I going to get hurt?"

But then, despite all my fears, I was hooked my very first night!

The coaches work right alongside of you, explaining and demonstrating everything throughout the workout. 

They make you feel comfortable so you get the techniques down and move at your own pace.

My overall experience here at DSC has been that joining DSC is the best decision I've ever made! I'm healthier and happier than ever!"

Meet Nancy - Down 20lbs!

"I knew that I needed guidance and something more advanced than walking if I was going to get there. After seeing the facility, DSC seemed like a perfect fit and I was ready to make a commitment! Each exercise was broken down and I was able to work at my own pace.

The other members were all so welcoming and supportive too which helped make the environment more relaxed.

Overall, DSC has helped me reach my goal of losing 20lbs and gaining strength and muscle tone!

It's not easy to start an exercise routine and walking into a gym can be very intimidating. I know I was very scared myself so I don't blame anyone for feeling that way. 

I would encourage anyone who is thinking about a gym to come into DSC however. You will always get a friendly face and every coach is fantastic! The workouts can be modified to suit your ability level. 

They've made it the easiest and most comfortable place to join regardless of your starting point."

Meet Ora - Down 50lbs!

"The end of 2017 came and beginning of 2018 was starting so I needed to start putting a plan in action to start living healthier. 

But I knew I needed to take it baby steps; I couldn’t tackle everything all at once or it would just be too overwhelming.

Prior to really making the decision to check out DSC, my biggest fears were that it would be too challenging and I would look like a fool in front of strangers. 

I had thought going to DSC would be too far out of my comfort zone and something I would not do on my own. 

Fast forward to today, the story is very different from that of six months ago - I workout at DSC typically three times a week! 

I have personally lost 50lbs!

I am down several pant sizes.

I am feeling stronger (my 80lb dog can no longer pull me to the ground, when she sees a cat during our walks), and my energy level has increased full fold."

Meet Jen - Down 85lbs!

"Before I walked in the door I was really scared, but after just a few minutes, while I was waiting, I texted my husband something like “I love the atmosphere here!” 

When we got started Renee put me completely at ease.  The workout was a challenge but it was so fun that I couldn’t wait to come back.

Over the course of my personal fitness journey and the DSC Women's Group Training, I have lost a total of 85lbs!  

The results are evident throughout my every day life. I am sometimes shocked at how strong I am and the things I’m able to do!" 

Meet Jen - Down 36lbs!

"My ultimate goal was weight loss that would last. 

I was starting to feel some depression and getting into a rut thinking it would never happen for me. 

I have heard the saying the only cure for depression is action, so I knew I had to do something or nothing would change. 

I decided to give it a go with DSC's Women's Group Training.

The first class was amazing!

I felt so nervous going in, but absolutely confident that I could do this by the time I left. 

DSC has been absolutely life changing for me. 

I’ve lost 36lbs, went down two sizes in my jeans, and I feel stronger than ever!"

Meet Kathleen - Down 51lbs!

"I had many fears about joining Dynamic.

I was afraid of not being able to (fill in the blank), not being able to keep up with a class and being the slow, fat kid.  

Mostly, I was afraid my weight would get in the way of my workout.  

Also, I had just suffered a severe ankle sprain 3 months prior to joining and was concerned with how it would hold up and/or hold me back.

Starting in the Women’s Group was the perfect fit and Renee was incredibly understanding.

I am down 51lbs and 4 pant sizes! 

I have more energy than I can ever remember having. I have come off of my high blood pressure medication and was told at my physical in June, I was in the best shape I have been in, in the past 20 years!" 

Meet Deb - Down 30lbs!

"I still remember my first visit to DSC. 

I wanted to get a feel for the kinds of exercises I was in for and as I watched the group of women I was struck by their diversity. 

Women of all ages and abilities working out together, sweating and many were smiling!! 

I joined DSC without knowing any other members, so the support of the group made me feel welcomed and kept me engaged. 

So far, I’ve lost 30 pounds and traded in my size 12-14 jeans for a size 8!

Joining DSC's Women's Group was the best thing I’ve ever done for myself!"

Meet Colleen - Down 40lbs!

"I was never alone.                                                          

Now if I miss a class I am actually bummed. Which is a weird feeling, to actually miss a work out class. 

The ladies in the group are so much fun and you never feel like an outsider.  

So far since January I have lost 40lbs and 41 inches overall!"

Meet Ginger - Down 20lbs!

"I wanted to join the Women's Group Training but was very nervous because I didn't know what to expect and I was worried that I would hold back others in the class if I wasn't able to keep up.

I was anxious about my first Women's Group class but the trainers were very attentive and anticipated that I might be nervous which made me feel much more comfortable. 

I went home and told my husband that I knew DSC would be good for me since it was a large step out of my comfort zone but in a way that was exciting!

I've learned through DSC that I love pushing myself and seeing progress turn into results. 

Since joining DSC I've lost 20lbs and have gone from a size 14 to fitting in a size 6!"

Meet Amber - Down 50lbs!

"I made a New Years Resolution for 2018 to start focusing on myself and gain confidence while getting my life back together. Which is what lead me to joining DSC... the BEST decision ever!

One of my biggest fears when I first joined was if I’d be able to keep up.

I knew I was out of shape and it had been a year since I had even stepped foot inside a gym.

Thankfully after joining those worries quickly went away!

It comforted me that both coaches kept checking in on me throughout the workout! They really made sure I was working at my own pace and took me through every step of the exercises. 

Since joining DSC, I’m officially down 50 pounds!

I love all the positive energy you find when you walk into DSC! It's really a community and family here. Never would I have thought I’d actually enjoy coming to workout daily."

Meet Meghan - Down 30lbs!

"I was a little nervous to come at first especially because of my age and being with the adults, but after coming a few times my nerves were calmed because everyone was so nice and it made me feel much more comfortable. 

The fact that you’re always able to go at your speed and ability level makes such a difference and helps to eliminate intimidation or embarrassment.

Overall I just love coming to DSC! The coaches really make the entire experience so much fun! I also love that a lot of the coaches are women and are so supportive.

Since starting DSC I have lost 30 pounds, and I’m down 2 pants sizes!"

Meet Lynda - Down 50lbs!

"Initially I was very concerned about injury seeing as I had disc issues, but Matt and Renee worked with me to ensure I didn’t do anything to cause further injury.  

The trainers are great at making modifications in the exercises for people with injuries or limited mobility. 

I am already down 50 pounds!"

Meet Cheryl - Down 45lbs!

"My first night I was really nervous. 

I thought "What if I can't do it? 

What if I fail again?" 

Boy was I wrong!  

The moment I met Renee and Matt as well as the many women who were in my Tuesday evening group that night, I knew I made the right choice!!

Since joining I've lost 45lbs!"

Meet Priscilla - Down 31lbs!

"I joined in October and couldn't believe the support, camaraderie, encouragement and non-competitive environment this place offered.  

DSC and their trainers are wonderful motivators! 

I am down 20lbs and 11 more in the Nutrition Coaching Program! I am more determined than ever to be strong and build endurance through their guidance. 

I am stronger and I am confident that this is where I belong!"

Meet Janice - Down 38lbs!

"My first Women's Group class was AMAZING!! 

I was a nervous wreck coming in and honestly thought that I was going to be sick to my stomach. 

Before the class, everyone was so welcoming. Renee, DSC's Women's Group Director was so encouraging and the women in the group were very supportive. 

I honestly couldn't wipe the smile off of my face after the first class and couldn't wait to come back.

I recently had my yearly physical and lost 38 pounds since my last physical! I have also dropped 4 pant sizes!"

Meet Cheryle - Down 43lbs!

"My doctor said I needed to lose weight and make changes to my lifestyle if I wanted to feel better. 

I knew that I was ready and definitely didn’t want to continue going down a path that would continue to cause me more and more pain as things worsened. 

My first class was so much fun!! I was for sure out of shape and several times thought to myself, “What am I getting myself into??” 

I made it through the entire class though and was even excited to go back the next day!

The coaching staff is incredible and sets Dynamic apart!

They are always there, teaching, coaching, helping and cheering you on all the way.

Today, with the help of the coaches, I have lost 43lbs!"

Meet Jen - Down 20lbs!

"I have to say, I have avoided exercise classes like the plague my whole life. I’ve always preferred to run by myself on the treadmill. 

I was intimidated by the hard core fitness people I would see through the glass in the classes at the Y.

But it’s not like that at all at DSC. 

There are people of all shapes, sizes, and ages. 

I have lost 20lbs and I am so much stronger!

During my first few weeks at DSC I could barely do one push-up but now I can do at least 10 and I get excited when I see them on on the workout board. 

I am wearing clothes that haven’t fit me in five years! And the true test is that my kids even think I look better!"

Meet Kerry - Down 33lbs!

"I was ready to change it up. I was ready for results!

Then I came across DSC via Facebook.

It looked like something different and fun so I decided to give it a try. 

I REALLY enjoyed my first Woman's Group class and was so glad I came!

The experience was different from other gyms that I had joined in the past.

The amount of personal attention and care I received that night (and continue to every class) is unlike anywhere else. The coaches know who you are and how to help you as an individual. 

Since joining DSC I have lost 33.5 pounds! Even better is that I feel more confident, better in my own skin, and I definitely feel stronger as well!"
