Need a jump start to your workout routine? Do you feel the winter blues? Our friends at Daman’s Strength Training in Beaver are ready to launch another installment of their most popular program ever, the Fit Moms Challenge. Just from talking about the program with DST owner Rick Daman and Coach Mary Futato, I can’t tell you how many lives are being impacted by the Fit Moms Challenge. I have gotten a complete sense of transformation for the women who complete Fit Moms. Everyone wants to see results. Everyone wants a “quick fix.” At DST, they’re delivering results in only four weeks. And it shows. Just look at the photos below from some of the latest participants. That’s because DST delivers a comprehensive program not only designed at crushing body fat, but also educating their members and participants on how to eat properly. We all know that one will not see tangible results without putting the right food into their body.

Again, we want to reiterate this program is not just open to mothers. It is open to any female. Any age. 18 or 55.

The best way to get a sense for what the program offers and what it is like being a participant is to hear from those who completed Fit Moms from start to finish. Their stories are below.

“After my doctor cleared me to exercise at the intensity that I desired, I just so happened to receive an email about the Fit Mom Challenge, and knew it must be fate that would bring me and my DST family back together! I knew from the minute I was going to take my life back and have full control of my choices that DST was going to help me GET THERE! I am a wife, a mom, a daughter, a sister, a co-worker. I work neatly 50+ hours a week while still maintaining my home, kids, extra curricular activities, etc. I put everyone and everything before myself, and the fact of the matter is I’m no good to anyone if I’m not happy, healthy, and most importantly, around! No short term fixes. I’m in it for the journey and want DST to travel with me! DST got my back and I’m ready for this fight for my life!” – Heather S.

“After the results my husband achieved from the Ripped Dads program, I wanted to see how Fit Moms would work for me. The structured workouts and support from the amazing coaches, along with the diet suggestions and camaraderie among the group, kept me motivated. The program provided me four weeks of being active, improved my health, and transformed my physique to the best it’s been in YEARS! The program inspired me to continue my journey to better health with a membership to DST.” – Beth D.


“My journey on my four week Fit Mom Challenge started out scary, out of breath, sore and hungry, but changed my diet and got on board with Daman’s and their awesome trainers. I feel great, my clothes finally fit again, and I am eating more now than when I started. I’ve just made better food choices. Thanks, Daman’s, for the push when I needed it. You got me off to a great start.  I still have work to do, but without all of the trainers at DST, my girls (J&L) that I started with and all the other great people I met, made it a lot easier, kept me on track and, it was fun. I am a winner no matter what!!! Bring it on summer!”  – Lorraine M.

“I have two young children, and a husband who works shifts, but I feel so wonderful that I can’t stop and just had to join!! My family agrees; I need these few hours a week for my health and sanity!!” -Kara S.

“Everyone has a story. Mine is this: I began this weight loss journey two years ago after deciding I could no longer limit myself from being over weight. I’ve had a lot of ups and downs until I joined the Fit Moms competition. I have to admit I was completely terrified to show up at Daman’s the first day, but I quickly learned it was a very welcoming and comfortable atmosphere. Coach Mary is very wonderful, and any other time we worked with Coach Brian and Coach Rick they were just as wonderful. They all want to see you do well, and they all want to see you work. The bootcamp work outs are on a whole new level from what I was doing on my own, but at Daman’s they teach you correct form, proper technique, confidence, and how to get after it to your fullest ability. Having coaches that are not only passionate about their own health but our health also has completely changed my life in a four week time period. I can’t wait to continue on and have the best results possible and continue living a healthy life for my girls, my hubby, and myself. Daman’s truly is the BEST!! #dst #bestgyminbeavercounty #confidencebuilders #mynewfavoriteplace”

These are the individual totals and results from a previous Fit Moms Challenge:

  • Jamie S: 4.4 lbs & 5.9% body fat
  • Kathi E: 14.2 lbs
  • Tara B: 6.2 lbs & 4.9% body fat
  • Beth D: 7 lbs
  • Heidi S: 7.4 lbs
  • Lorraine M: 13.4 lbs & 3.5% body fat
  • Heather: 4.6 lbs & 3.4% body fat
  • Holly S: 5.4 lbs
  • Kristen R: 5.6 lbs

When you sign up for the challenge, you aren’t just signing up to work out three days a week at DST’s state-of-the-art facility in Beaver. You are getting much, much more. The Fit Moms have a private Facebook page where the coaching staff offers weekly nutritional advice. If you want to see results, you have to eat healthy, and the coaches will impress upon you the importance of this. “As a coaching staff, we know what new members are not doing in terms of nutrition,” said Rick Daman.

During the actual challenge, participants will be doing a variety of activities inside the 7,000 square foot gym on Georgetown Lane.

The first meeting will involve all of the participants who sign up. The coaches at DST will host a physical assessment, technique workshop, and nutritional meeting on Saturday, February 17th, at 7:30 am to lay the foundation and teach the basic elements of the program. Space is extremely limited, as their are only 10 spots available.

“Along with the workshop we will talk to them about what we suggest to do immediately to start seeing changes. The workshop itself will break down all of the technique they need to learn before we start any training,” Daman added. Participants will be completely prepared so when they start day one of the challenge they will be in total training mode.

Since this is a challenge, there has to be a winner, right? So how does one win the Fit Moms Challenge? Well, a few things happen before you actually begin so the coaches at DST are able to track tangible results. Every participant in the program will sign in with the female coaches at DST. Coach Dena Daman and Coach Mary Futato will take each member through an assessment so DST can track the results. At the end of the four week challenge, each participant will take the assessment again. Rick said, “Our goal is lower body fat percentage. The lower the better for each participant. We choose the winner based on percentage of fat loss and NOT weight loss.” Finally, the winner will receive a free two month membership to Daman’s Strength Training. Once again, this program is open to anyone, not just moms.
