Interview with DVRT Master Instructor and Trainer Dio Vujich.
When did you first become a DVRT Instructor and why was integrative health and fitness
appealing to you?
DVRT stands for Dynamic Variable Resistance Training which is the education and training system for Ultimate Sandbags.
I began using the Ultimate Sandbags with my personal training clients 3 years ago in cardio strength training circuits and was so impressed with the results that they were rapidly getting that I pursued my education with DVRT and this is my 2nd year as a DVRT Master Instructor.
What I love best about integrating exercise, nutrition and coaching clients on creating successful daily habits is that it affects their life’s big picture in a way that is positive as well as sustainable.
How many days per week do you spend training?
I usually train 6 days per week doing both Online and Offline Training.
I train semi-private groups which allow me to create a results getting experience for the clients where exercise form, regressions and progressions can be taught in a way that educates the client on what they’re doing, why they’re doing it and how it applies to their life outside of the workouts.
I have Coaching Clients that I train one on one through Skype where I actually coach them through their entire workout, diet and mindset for success. It’s an incredibly detailed experience where as a Coach I am there to help the client win in their Game of Life. This is an incredibly rewarding experience for clients as they overcome self-imposed limitations. It’s also rewarding for me because I get to be part of changing someone’s life and share their moment of victory with them as it happens.
Online Transformation Challenges-
I also have Transformation Challenge training programs that allow me to create a community of positive, supportive people that are focused on getting results and improving their quality of life.
Accountability and support are a big part of all of my programs.
I coach my clients in a way that helps them overcome challenges and discover greatness within themselves as they do the things they’ve never done to get the results they’ve never had.
Some of my clients have successfully lost over 70 pounds of unwanted body fat their first year of training with me.
