Dynamic Fitness was founded in 2005 by performance enhancement specialists Brian Richardson and Kevin Duenas. Understanding the importance of valid science along with correct and efficient program design, the Dynamic Fitness training system (DFTS™) allows you to garner safe and effective results. This approach along with a champion culture is the reason why we are the premiere training facility in the Inland Empire.
We develop individualized programs for:
It is safe to say that we are not all professional athletes. However, it is the belief of Dynamic Fitness High Performance Kinesiology that we can move like athletes. Using the Dynamic Fitness Training System (DFTS™), the general fitness population begins with a 1-3 hour comprehensive analysis allowing the specialist to establish any structural or musculoskeletal deviations that may contribute to a cumulative injury cycle. Upon calculating the individuals REE (resting energy expenditure) the specialist is able to make scientifically valid suggestions based on caloric/ nutrient intake and educate the individual on safely creating a caloric deficit through proper eating and exercise. This program will undoubtedly lead the client on their journey to healthy fat loss.
Traditional strength and conditioning programs (sport specific) generally fail to be education-based, and/or scientifically valid. Dynamic Fitness Training Model (DFTS™) begins with a 1-3 hour comprehensive analysis, which may include static postural imaging, orthopedic assessment, core coordination/ strength assessment, dynamic movement assessment, biomotor assessment (BMA) as well as performance testing. This allows the specialist to design and implement an individualized program for their particular sport/ activity. Using the DFTS™ model along with cutting edge techniques to progress the athlete through a base conditioning, strength, and power template allows the performance enhancement specialist to assist the athlete in their heavy pursuit to becoming the very best athlete they can be.
Program Focus Includes:
Metabolic testing (RMR/ VO2) if necessary
“I have been playing professional baseball for the last seven years. During off-season workouts I have always trained by myself. I didn’t realize how much more there is in training for a sport until I started working with Brian Richardson. The new ideas that he has brought forth have kept my body at a world-class level.”
Youth Performance focuses on educating young athletes on the mechanics of how their bodies move in a fun and engaging environment. By introducing the Dynamic Fitness Training System (DFTS™), kids learn the basics of correct biomechanics, as well as a foundation for future movement and sport progression. Mastering the basic movement patterns, children learn to use their bodies safely on the field of play, reducing risk of injury. The purpose of youth performance begins to shift to an increase of athletic potential and stressors they will encounter in sport situations. Athletes will experience an age-appropriate training progression that includes how to correctly transition and progress in areas of weight lifting, speed, and agility.
Program Focus: Motor Behavior
Collegiate and College Prep Performance focuses on year-round physical training with an individual and sport specific approach. This type of training can also be geared to multi-sport athletes with more than one competitive season in a calendar year. Housed within the Dynamic Fitness Training System (DFTS™) model, the professional addresses proper periodization to ensure the athlete stays healthy and performs optimally.
DFTS™ Prehab – corrective foundation focusing on developing a strong and balanced core to help protect athletes from injury and boost physical performance.
“Dynamic Fitness HPK was instrumental in the recovery process and strengthening of my shoulder after suffering from both a rotator cuff and labral tear. During the initial recovery period, DF provided exercises that focused on mobility coupled with strength around my shoulder to optimize healing and future stability. I attribute my continued recovery to the care and focus towards athletes that they provide in comparison to a regular physical therapist operation.”
Athletes on a team count on one another to perform as a cohesive unit. Performance strength and conditioning is an integral component for any successful team. Using the Dynamic Fitness Training System (DFTS™) our performance modalities assist the athletes in reducing injury and optimizing performance while working together for a common goal.
Coming off an injury is no easy task. Inflammation ultimately leads to adhesions along with tight over-active muscles. These tight or shortened muscles lead to synergistic dominance changing normal joint arthrokinematics. Using the Dynamic Fitness Training System (DFTS™), this program begins with a 1-3 hour comprehensive analysis allowing the specialist to establish any structural or musculoskeletal deviations that would contribute to this cumulative injury cycle. Through the use of corrective exercise along with core/ stabilization training, Dynamic Fitness High Performance Kinesiology is able to accelerate the healing process ultimately resulting in a healthy, injury free client.
“After suffering from a traumatic shoulder injury from an ATV accident followed by corrective surgery and one year of physical therapy, I was released from my doctor’s care without the full range of motion I used to have. Unhappy with my doctor’s response of “you have more range of motion in your shoulder that most people”, I started training with Kevin Duenas to get back the range of motion and strength I used to have before the accident. Kevin not only has complete knowledge of the human body, but understands the techniques needed to help people achieve their full potential. My shoulder is now 100%. I recommend Dynamic Fitness HPK to anyone who wants to improve their abilities, health, and strength. Did I mention the happy, uplifting, and positive environment makes it fun to workout at Dynamic Fitness HPK?”
VO2 (volume of oxygen) testing may be defined as discovering the maximum amount of oxygen consumed by the body at near maximal or exhaustive exercise. This highly sought after testing protocol is deemed the absolute best indicator of cardiorespiratory endurance as well as a suitable insurance policy for fitness enthusiasts to burn more fat during cardiorespiratory workouts.
The two most valuable pieces of data an individual can receive from participating in a VO2 test are the particular point during performance which the onset of CO2 and blood lactate accumulation exceed the body’s ability to remove it (anaerobic threshold) and, whether the body is using carbohydrate or fat as a predominant fuel source at that particular time (substrate utilization). Through proper training we can teach the body to use higher percentages of fat at higher intensities. This will allow the body to preserve stored sugar, which may be a preferable source of fuel as intensities rise.
RMR (resting metabolic rate) may be defined as the maximum amount of oxygen (O2) consumed by the body at rest. Since there is a direct correlation between O2 and calories (energy), this allows the specialist to determine the appropriate amount of food (energy) that is needed to sustain normal physiological processes such as breathing and digestion. Of this needed energy, 60-75% of those calories account for the total calories expended each day. Measuring ones RMR will allow the professional to determine a valid plan with respect to healthy weight management and/or performance.
Look no further. Indirect calorimetry such as the use of an RMR test is the missing piece to the fat loss puzzle.
