March 2015 Client of the Month: Julio De La Cruz

Congratulations to our March Client of the Month at Durbrow Performance, Julio De La Cruz.

This guy is so well-deserving of this award- he’s completely transformed his body and his mind and comes to the gym every day with an amazing attitude for himself and those around him.

Check out Julio’s story below:

1. What is your hometown?

Somerville, MA

2. What brought you to Durbrow Performance?

I live across the street so it was a no brainer. Just kidding. I need physical fitness in my life and prior to joining I would look out the window and see everyone coming out the front door looking like they gave it their best.

3. How long have you been training with us?

10 months

4. What do you do in the “real world?”

I work in the Telecommunications/Lab Resolutions field. I am a dad to 2 beautiful girls and my wife, Tina, also trains at DPT. I’m also a DJ on the side.

5. What is one thing most people don’t know about you?

I’m a big Star Wars geek.

6. What is your favorite exercise?

Tire flips :)

7. What is your greatest gym achievement so far?

My results in the nutrition program.

8. What motivates you and inspires you?

Results motivate me to continue to do better and the people at DPT inspire me.

9. What are your short term and long term goals?

My short term goal is to lose another 10 pounds. My long term goal is to maintain what I’ve learned so far and let that propel me to keep reaching. I’m not at my ideal weight yet, but I’m so much healthier than when I began at DPT.

10. What would you say to someone that is just starting or wants to start at DPT?

I would say this is the place that you will learn, be yourself, make mistakes, not be judged, be supported and have FUN.

What I Learned in Sunny Cali

Last weekend I was in sunny Cali

It was 80 degrees and sunny…that didn’t suck

I was at a fitness seminar with over 600 other professionals….I wanted to share with you what I learned

(don’t worry, it’s not boring shit like which exercises are the best)

  • surround yourself with like minded people
  • be crystal clear on your intentions
  • spend 15-20 minutes each morning working on YOU before you work on others
  • get a mentor
  • get a mentor that scares you, just a little
  • never stop working to get better
  • work out with people (it’s WAY more fun)

Why I Train

don’t train to get in shape

Sounds weird, coming from a fitness coach right?

I’m not saying you shouldn’t….what I am saying is that you need to figure out your goals

My goals and why I train are:

  • I want to feel bad ass
  • It helps me clear my head
  • I love doing Chin Ups
  • I LOVE doing Front Squats
  • Because muscles (shout out to Neghar Fonooni for that phrase)
  • I want to be pain free
  • I like to be able to jump up and do whatever my clients want me to do or show them ANY exercise
  • I like sculpting my body

You’re Doing Okay

The last few weeks were really rough for me.

I got away from all the “eat right and work out” stuff because frankly, it works but if you have shit going on, it only works for so long

Anyway, I had a little time over the past few weeks that straight up SUCKED
I felt myself slipping back into old habits

Once I got myself back into my “good” habits
