What Can D1 Do for you?
Why do people come to D1? The reasons as diverse as the athletes themselves. We can show you why D1 is different — let them tell you.
Four years ago I came to D1 as a guest. I was always an overweight child and this type of environment intimidated me. I thought it was a place just for athletes. Everyone here has been so encouraging and motivating, and now I feel like I am the athlete I never was. It’s finally here.
The great thing about D1 is that there are different exercises every day, working a different part of my body. I don’t get bored. Even though I’m not an outstanding athlete, I feel like an athlete when I am here. Both my sons are into sports, my husband utilizes the personal training, so we all love coming here. It has made such a difference for us.
What motivates me to work out is my drive for a volleyball scholarship. When I came to D1, I learned the right way to lift weights, got more muscle and began to develop an athlete’s body. D1 is serious about their athletes. They help you and work with you so that you train the right way.
My husband and I take a strength training class and then walk over and do a boot camp. It’s lot of work but the results are amazing. As a family, this is something we can do together. Our kids are learning how to not give up, how to keep going and how to follow through.
I tried different gyms and always ended up doing the same thing for the same amount of time — and going nowhere. The coaches at D1 are so encouraging; they got me in the front door when I was scared to death. They get to know you and give you the kind of attention you’re not going to get at other gyms. I’ve lost 50 pounds, but I have also gained so much confidence.
There are a lot of heart issues in our family and I’m prone to that. I want to live a long life and live it, not just show up. I only needed one workout to know that D1 is where I wanted to be.
