If you’ve seen one of our social media posts or come to one of our free workouts, you’ve likely read or heard the phrase “Every Damn Day.” Yeah, it’s aggressive. It’s direct. It’s a statement, not a question. And, maybe it’s a bit in your face. But, it’s one of our Dirty South Fit mottos because it describes our approach to health, fitness and life. But in a practical sense, what does “Every Damn Day” actually mean?View full article →
If you can't attend our FREE Dirty South Fit workout at Mason Mill Park at 8am, give this bodyweight burner a shot! Knock it out in the living room, in the back yard, or at the park. Do it before the kids wake up or have them jump in for a family affair. Bottom line, just get it done!

You been outside, or even seen the outside? Holy hell, guys, this heat is no joke. But, we're Dirty South Fit and we don't make excuses. We're still gonna find a way to stay active, even when it's 150 degrees and 200% humidity. What makes us Dirty South Fit is that we find ways to work around these obstacles.
Before we jump into this, I'd like to begin with a disclaimer. The point of this post, is NOT to promote any one method/discipline of exercise. In fact, it's quite the opposite. We want people to experiment with exercise, try a spin class, try Crossfit, yoga, Pure Barre, because that is the only way you'll find something that you have the good chance of sticking with. Why? Because we tend to gravitate towards things we are good at (for the most part).View full article →
Happy Birthday America! A holiday weekend isn't a holiday from your goals. Knock out this quick in the morning before the bbq, family and fireworks!
30 sec of each exercise, no rest between. Rest 90 sec after finishing the entire circuit. Repeat 4x, advanced repeat 5x.
Marathon runners put in hundreds of miles leading up to one race. Competitive weightlifters train about 6 total exercises for years to perfect their movements. Professional athletes perform speed and agility drills their entire careers. So it makes me cringe a little when I hear a client say they don't workout because they get bored easily. What this statement actually tells me is that this individual is focusing on the wrong thing.View full article →
Get your weekend started off proper with this quick, 10-15 minute workout. The main goal here is speed, with that being said, do not sacrifice proper form for quickness. Try your best to hit the rep counts unbroken, and to complete a full round without resting. If rest is required, do so between rounds. There will be an "(A)dvanced" option offered for each exercise, if you've been on a regular workout program, give some of the Advanced versions a try. Remember, your goal is speed. If you get through two rounds of trying the harder version and can no longer complete the rep counts unbroken, scale down to the regular option. SPEED! SPEED! SPEED!

For this week's Do Work At Work Wednesday, we want to take a break from the physical challenges, and focus more on the mental side. This is often overlooked, but has a HUGE impact on many areas of our life. Being mindful, or present, applies directly to our work, our relationships, our lifestyle choices and our journey to live a healthy and fit life.

We created this section of the website to provide information, resources and tools for all things fitness related. We’re trainers first, so helping people live healthy, fit lives is and always will be the Dirty South Fit mission. It seemed appropriate then that the first post reflect the first question we ask any of our clients: What are your goals?
We can talk all day about making goals that are measurable, attainable, timely and all that noise. But you’re no dummy; you already know this. Instead, this is your 5 step plan to turning your goal in to a reality.
