Member Spotlight: The Diaz Family

Member Spotlight on the Diaz Family! Dan, Rachel, and their daughter Alyssa, are dedicated Kick Fit members. Dan and Rachel started in 2015 and, in time, encouraged their daughter to join as well. They tell about their love for the classes, friendships with other members, and friendly instructors below.

Dan and Rachel reminisce on their Kick Fit journey: We honestly had no idea what to expect when we first came to a Kick Fit class two years ago. Rachel’s typical workout consisted of running on a treadmill for a couple hours a night and I would primarily lift weights with an ‘occasional’ run outside or on the treadmill. We realized that strictly cardio or strictly strength training was not providing the functional results we were looking for in our day-to-day activities.

On our first day at Rothwell MMA, we were introduced to friendly personal instruction on proper form and sincere encouragement that had us eager to come back for another session. We had no idea that working out could be so much fun! There’s a great mix of very knowledgeable instructors with unique personalities that fit well with anyone who comes to class. We love how classes are never boring as each one challenges different muscle groups from their deep assortment of exercises. We have formed friendships that go beyond the walls at the Rothwell gym and always help motivate each other whether we’re inside or outside of class.

We cannot express in words how fortunate and grateful we are for what Ben and Jen have built here at Rothwell MMA. This is not just a gym to work out at for self-improvement – this is a true family atmosphere where people really care about each other and no one is judged on appearance or ability. 

Alyssa is hooked on Kick Fit: “In 2015, I tried my first Kick Fit class with my parents Dan and Rachel Diaz. During that class, I realized right then and there that this gym would make a great impact on my physical endurance and strength. It wasn’t until November of 2016 that I officially joined the Rothwell family. At the end of every day, I can always count on Kick Fit to help relieve any stress I am going through. These classes are designed so that no matter what, you can always push yourself to your limits regardless of what the person next to you is capable of doing.

I love all the trainers; each and every one of them has their own unique quality that makes class such a great experience. They are always positive and aren’t afraid to push you to your limits. Not only is the staff amazing but the groups of people who are a part of the class are amazing as well. Each and every one of them welcomed me into the Rothwell family with open arms! I can’t wait to see the progress I make during this year both physically and mentally!
