Now here's an incredibly amazing feat of strength, vitality and endurance by Julia "Hurricane" Hawkins...She's 103 years young!

From today's PAA Cycling Tour de Sponsor Ride meet Marco and Connie, The Dynamic Advantage awarded their courageous finishing of the climb out of Eagle Rock on Colorado Blvd. You have heard of Queen and King of the mountain, they get to the top first. Connie and Marco brought up the rear of the group and here given the Serf of the Mountain award. They each get a JumpStart program with us, beginning with a consultation with Rick Caputo, then six Dynamic Strength Training sessions.

PAA Cycling's Tour de Sponsor Ride today brought this large group to our fitness home. Yes we all fit inside as Rick Caputo provided a short presentation of how we help people get strong.

A great morning Thursday training John Gantus and Gus Salgado. They train individually and they do the "farmer carry" at the same time around our training space. We all were in our TDA jackets. #represent!

We had an amazing weekend at the SUCCEED! conference, hosted by AFS (the Association of Fitness Studios), in Irvine, CA. One of the significant highlights was seeing an amazing couple, Lynne & Augie Nieto. Augie is a remarkable 14 year survivor of ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis). He is also the co-founder and retired CEO of Life Fitness, one of the leading manufacturers of cardiovascular equipment in the world.

The Nietos created Augie's Quest to raise research funds for discovering treatments and cures for this deadly disease. Having been robbed of his ability to move like he did prior to his diagnosis, he now makes presentations around the world with Lynne, his high school sweetheart and wife of almost 40 years.

If you want to learn more, visit Amazon Prime Video and search for the movie, "Augie". Watch some of the 2018 story about his incredible journey towards helping others or go to AugiesQuest.com. He is an incredible example of the road to fitness having no finish line.

Creating exercises to improve function.

It was April 1, 1996 when Dynamic Strength Training (DST) was born! This was the first day we ever coached a group of people using our personalized fitness program. The challenge came from using multiple levels of elastic resistance tubing with handles.

We're still volunteering our time at the Cancer Support Community in Pasadena but we're proud to have expanded our reach to our club in Eagle Rock, CA as well as NASA's Jet Propulsion Lab and even the City Of Hope where we currently have our DST program serving 11 breast cancer survivors in the Return To Wellness program led by Marlene Maroun-Flowers.

Here's a little inside view of the Los Angeles Lakers' training headquarters in El Segundo. The big machine is a unique anti-gravity treadmill called the Alter-G. It can actually make you significantly lighter through the use of an air bladder that can "raise" you off the tread to help regain stamina progressively as you heal.-The team also trains with elastic resistance tubing that's similar to what we use in Dynamic Strength Training!

This three ladies are looking strong in their new team TDA jackets. They are known as the GJAN Team. The acronym is from their names. Gina, Jo Ann and Nella. They work with us at the studio with Rick Caputo. They also workout at a local big box gym. Rick provides their program for this gym. On Fridays the three workout together there.

The tubing lies in wait during a water break at JPL. Five people are strengthening their hips, core, and back muscles at this workstation.

It's always a great moment when we have an opportunity to expand our sphere of influence and grow,
In January, our client, Nancy Benson, was able to convince her husband, Larry to come to the studio for a consultation. He realized he might benefit from a Dynamic Strength Training program so he said "yes" to starting a 21 Day Jump Start Program. He enjoyed it and made a commitment to one session/ week for the rest of 2016.
We appreciate Nancy for referring him to us and hope she enjoys spending her $100 Referral Rewards check!

Dynamic Strength Training Turns Twenty!

It was a sunny Monday, April 1, 1996 at 5:30pm when the very first Dynamic Strength Training session took place with five people experiencing cancer at the Cancer Support Community (formerly known as The Wellness Community-Foothills) in Pasadena. They ranged in age from the 30s to the 60s. Each of them were seeking some type of solution for easing their physical pain and discomfort along with their emotional stress which comes along with battling a life-threatening condition.

We're often asked how we got started with this type of exercise programming and what was the catalyst for helping others this way.

It actually began with Brandon acquiring a client at LA Fitness-Pasadena who decided she wasn't a good fit with the first person she had hired to help her. As a breast cancer survivor herself and a professor at Loyola Marymount University, she felt she understood not only her body but also what she was looking for in an instructor.

After several weeks of training sessions, she approached Brandon about looking into meeting the program director at The Wellness Community to see if there might be a way for him to introduce others to the methods of training with elastic resistance tubing. After several conversations in early 1996, it was decided that a small group of people would receive coaching together with the varied levels of resistance tubing in order to safely boost their strength and energy while going through chemotherapy of radiation. The participants who came regularly reported feeling more energized and in control of their lives.

The Dynamic Strength Training program was successful at attracting 5-10 people consistently each week and after about six months, Rick got involved with coaching the program as well. After that, he and Brandon began alternating the weekly sessions. Soon afterwards, Flowers and Caputo became formal business partners and The Dynamic Advantage: Your Professional Fitness Team was officially born. Since then, the business has grown to help many other people throughout the San Gabriel Valley and beyond through the unique use of elastic resistance tubing and cutting edge implementation of small group training with portable equipment.

Through the Cancer Support Community and former program director, Janet Kraemer, the Return To Wellness programs were started in 2000 at various medical centers around Los Angeles. Dynamic Strength Training became a core component of these 8-10 week sessions serving up to 15 women at a time. The San Gabriel Valley locations were led by Marlene Maroun-Flowers and those on the west side of Los Angeles were led by Craig Schoenbaum.

A great deal of thanks goes out to the rest of The Dynamic Advantage's team members including Jazzy Alarcon, Greg Guinasso, Marlene and Craig. It wouldn't be possible to serve upwards of 150 people each week without their ability, expertise and commitment!

Much appreciation is also sent out to each extremely loyal client who comes to us every week at our Eagle Rock training studio, their individual homes and to our hallmark corporate fitness program at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in La Canada. Always remember that the road to fitness has no finish line. We must stay active and keep moving...for life! - Here's to the next twenty years!
