STEP THREE: Tour Daman’s Strength Training
Hey! I’ve still got a few questions…
11) What kind of training is this? Is DST like CrossFit?
CrossFit does barbell lifts, and so do we at DST. CrossFit has a minimalist approach to their gym equipment and facilities, and we take the same approach. But that is where the similarities end. At DST, we utilize a specific, structured and guided yearly plan. We avoid randomness, because it only breeds randomness. Our programming is established on the needs of athletes, and is filtered into the adult members. This scientific structure allows for us to progressively push members and athletes, while avoiding injury. The mindset that your workout should leave you feeling punished, demolished, destroyed, or grinding it out is pure marketing. It is human nature to assume more is better. Your workout should possess a goal that reaches for a point within an annual plan. We coach with an eye on proper bio-mechanics, an understanding of the body and fun. We are with you every step of the way. Remember, randomness breeds randomness and can lead to injury.
22) What should I expect on my first day?
Because our program is tailored to meet your needs, expect one of our friendly and supportive team members to guide you through your workout. We’ll teach you all the aspects of our workout structure, and adjust it to your needs.
3 3) I’ve seen the TV Shows…are you going to be yelling at me?
No way! Our Team is here to help you succeed, and support you every step of the way. The TV shows have it all wrong with yelling and belittling. A Coach’s job is to support your journey, and at DST that is exactly what you get.
44) I’ve heard DST is for lifters and tires and stuff, not for me.
Fortunately, our mission is to help the community of Pittsburgh, and the surrounding suburbs get fit, strong, and healthy through fitness and balanced eating. Our program is fit to our members, and can be adapted for anyone willing to put in the time and energy to get better.
55) Will this program make me gain muscle or get bulky?
Our programs are designed to help you get fit. Being fit means becoming leaner through proper nutrition and a proper exercise program. Our goal is to gain muscle and lose body fat. You will not become bulky through our program.
