About Dinah Goodman

Hello! I am Dinah Goodman. I love to help people reach their fitness goals and I believe in total wellness. I want to instill in others that fitness is a personal journey shared with people that uplift and inspire us. A tribe that gets us through our goals. I want to be that inspiration and motivator and I love to be a part of each person’s journey to total wellness and happiness.

Ever since childhood, I have loved sports and fitness. I was involved in sports at young age and was inspired by my father, who was a soldier in the Army and lived and breathed the fitness life style. As a child, I played soccer, volleyball, swimming, and water polo, in addition to softball and gymnastics. If it was outdoors, I wanted to be a part of it.

In 1986 at the age of 17 I joined the Army and learned in boot camp that I could do much more than I ever thought I was physically capable of. It was an eye opener and challenged me both physically and mentally. I did not know at the time however that having proper nutrition was just as important as getting enough physical activity. I would learn later in life that working out is just one component of fitness.

In the Army, I attended Airborne or jump school and ran more than I ever did before. After that however, I had a desk job and, although I was still young and did physical training each morning, I did not eat enough or healthily nor did I get the proper amount of sleep to rejuvenate my body.

While in the Army, I discovered body building and started to eat right and mold my body for competition. Then I turned to power lifting for 19 years and was injured. I pushed myself too hard and wound up hurting myself, which set me back from discovering my ideal fitness goals. I trained others but back in the 80s and 90s, exercise science was mostly still being tweaked and we made a lot of mistakes which manifested itself in the form of permanent injuries that came back to haunt me at a later age. I was on a cycle of injury, heal, lift heavy and hard again, injury again. It was a difficult cycle to break.

I was a personal trainer and taught gymnastics both part time and full time in some capacity my whole adult life. I became a certified Sports Nutritionist. I joined the Navy after the Army and was injured again on deployment. With an injured and weak low back, hips, and shoulders, I felt I would never get back to fitness and wellness. I discovered I had a slow thyroid and I submitted to the idea that I would never be healthy again and I used my injuries and age as an excuse. I had become one of the women I listened to my whole life who did not have confidence in their abilities to get healthy again.

Finally, I got tired of making excuses. I was training other people and they were seeing results but I was not taking care of myself. I decided to stop making excuses and to feed off the energy and positivity of the people I trained and those around me that loved fitness. Although I am not the same person I was when I was younger, I have learned that I can still be healthy and fit for my age group and could modify my workouts to maximize their effect while avoiding injury. I did not have to work out for 3 hours or even 1 hour a day to get back to my fitness goals. High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) when done in a boot camp setting with motivating coaches, awesome music, and a tribe of amazing people can have such a profound effect!
