What is your Philosophy?

I feel as a Personal Trainer/Coach, my job is to bring positive change to people's lives.  I strive to provide safe, challenging, fun and effective sessions to anyone wanting to achieve a fitness/weight loss goal or rehab an injury.


What makes you passionate about training?
Building close relationships/watching clients exceed their goals and keep wanting more.  It's fun to watch a shift occur in their physical/mental confidence and abilities.  Often that new confidence expands into all areas of their lives.  Helping to facilitate that confidence is really rewarding and keeps me motivated and passionate about training.


How did you get into the field?
I was in my Sophomore year at Univ. of Texas, my major was Art and my Life Drawing Professor suggest I find another major. I was crushed and cried my way over to my Career Counselor and she asked me what my interests were I replied Soccer and working out. She told me of a brand new degree called Kinesiology...Read More

What is your Philosophy?
As a trainer, my philosophy is to help individuals learn and become aware on how to live the happiest and healthiest life. The six main functional movement patterns are critical to understand for the way we live. We utilize these movements almost every day when we pick up things, clean the car and house, and when we perform daily movements. Therefore, it is important to understand how to perform these movements correctly before diving into all the other great exercises one can perform! The body is capable of doing so many incredible things, and as a trainer I want to support and guide my clients to feeling that they are capable of more than they could imagine. Exercising is the best form of therapy and it makes us feel better about ourselves and the way that we live. Exercising is the physical component of being fit and healthy, and as a trainer, I strongly believe that it is just as important to integrate a psychological piece to training. With that, I...Read More

Dogma Memeber of the Month

Dogma Memeber of the Month

Way to go Marker, your dedication is paying off!
She has lost 40lbs since working out with Rod and focusing on her nutrition.
 
We asked Marka what motivated her to start the fitness journey and what keeps her going?
"At the beginning of the year, 2017 I looked at the scale and decided I had to do something, I was overweight, taking two blood pressure medicines and felt horrible. I have always been an athlete, enjoying biking, hiking, swimming, running, golf, etc. and I was having trouble enjoying those things.   
When the email arrive from Rod, I decided to commit to what has now proved to be a life changing experience.  I cannot begin to express my gratitude for the support the people at Dogma, my family and friends have provided.  They are amazing motivators and for me, my heroes!"
 
Marka says she enjoys Dogma because everyone is here to help and encourage her.  "It is an infectious feeling when everyone is working out together, pushing to the limit!"
We love having Marka in the...Read More

What is your Philosophy?

"look good, feel good, play good"
I believe everyone should have a goal of looking good, feeling good and/or playing good.  I not only believe in having one of these goals but also enjoying the process to achieving your goal.   

What makes you passionate about training?

I enjoy helping people reach their strength and fitness goals.  I love bringing a fun yet effective environment to the training process. I also enjoy working with injured clients.  Whether they are pre or post-surgery or just rolled an ankle hiking up Vail mountain I am passionate about getting the client back to the active lifestyle they enjoy.

Tell us a little bit about yourself and why you work out.

I've always been an active and athletic person. Throughout my life I feel I've played every sport, and yet physically I am always trying to do more.  We moved to Colorado in 2003 to be not only closer to nature but also to surround ourselves more with other active people. As I've gotten older and with pesky work stuff and desk time getting in the way, I found my fitness was slipping, resulting in my fitness regime consisting of more weekend warrior activities than everyday warrior activities. As a result, I found myself injured more often to the point of a few chronic injury conditions brewing up. I work out to regain and retain all I can of my youth, since the more I play the happier I am.

 

Why do you enjoy coming to Dogma and how has it helped you?

 

Where do I begin? Over the years, I've had to manage a bad knee from a injury when I was quite young. I've had several corrective and reconstructive...Read More
