Before DSC I would join a standard gym, go for a couple months and then just stop going.

Even when I did bring myself to go, I didn’t really know what I was doing so I would just hop on a few different machines and leave after an hour.

I had no motivation to push myself to workout alone and got bored of the same old machines over and over again.

Needless to say, I never made any true progress due to a lack of support and guidance.

I heard about DSC through some friends from work and then I realized another friend from outside of work had just started going as well! 

I asked my friend some questions about the gym and she convinced me to come try out a class with her. I honestly wish I had listened back in 2016 when I first heard about DSC but I was to chicken to try it out at the time. 

When I joined DSC's Women's Group Program, my main goal was to get into a consistent workout routine and lose the extra weight I gained.

Along with losing the weight, I really wanted to reshape my body and gain muscle definition.

The number on the scale terrified me. I knew I had hit rock bottom and needed to take control.

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.

I also feared that I wouldn’t fit in, which was due to my lack of self confidence.

Thankfully after joining those worries quickly went away! 

Walking in for my first class was nerve wrenching.

My worry eased up after meeting Matt and Renee, they were so friendly and welcoming! 

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. 

Despite my fears, my first class went great and I was pleased to make it through without injuring myself.

It was a challenge but in a good way that I needed. I knew after that night I would for sure be signing up! 

I have nothing but amazing things to say about every coach at DSC!

I love how they are all focused on every individual and are right there to help us when needed. I also fully appreciate that they give us that extra push to up our weights; I know that I for one need that extra push to get out of my comfort zone to help make constant progress.

Each coach brings a fun element to the gym vibe. The energy is unparalleled. 

I don’t know I’d ever find another gym where everyone shares as many laughs a day as we do at DSC!

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

I'm happy to fit back into my jeans that haven’t fit for quite a few years!

I actually have more energy now and I don’t feel all sluggish.

In the beginning push ups were a huge struggle for me, now with the encouragement of my buddies I know I’m capable of no longer doing them from my knees!

From the start of my journey I’ve been tracking my progress with pictures. 

It truly amazed me to see what I accomplished in just the past 3 months.

I’m excited to see what progress I can continue to make!

I love all the positive energy you find when you walk into DSC! It's really a community and family here.

Every day brings something new and we all encourage each other to push ourselves to new limits. 

I’ve met a lot of great people at DSC, it truly is one of the highlights of my day coming in for a workout. 

Never would I have thought I’d actually enjoy coming to workout daily. I love that the workouts are always challenging to your own level, and that beyond the amazing workouts they also share informative articles with us.

My best advice to someone considering DSC's Women's Group Program is to definitely give it a try, you won’t regret it!

It is not as intimidating as it looks.

You have the comfort to go at your own pace with amazing coaches by your side and a community of members for support as well!
