WEEK #40: DALLAS PRICE
Please tell us a little bit about yourself.
I’ve been an athlete my whole life, playing as many sports as my schedule could handle from field hockey, baseball, cheerleading, badminton, track to of course rugby. My life consisted of music and sport for as long as I can remember. I was an extremely insecure kid, and I excelled easily in sport so it’s where I felt the most confident. Not looking after my body side-lined me in my early 20s and I walked away from everything fitness related. There were days I could barely walk or stand cause of the pain. It over took my life and after years, I decided to do something about it.
This brought me to the world of weight training and my passion for helping others reduce pain and regain their best life. I have been a personal trainer now for over 13 years and a business owner for 7 years. From athletes to the elderly, my goal is to help my clients live the life they want without being held back by their health. After rehabbing myself for about a year, I returned to playing rugby about 10 years ago and haven’t looked back.
I now split my love of rugby with playing and coach 3 junior girls rugby teams. Being a trainer, I think it gives me a huge advantage as a coach as I understand proper movement patterns and cueing for safety.
My schedule is constantly changing with my job and team commitment and that’s what keeps me engaged. I couldn’t do the same thing every day because my attention span wouldn’t last. I plan on opening a training facility in the next couple years with a ton of ideas on programming for youth athletes and individuals with medical conditions.
