A couple of weeks ago we introduced you to our new Midtown co-studio manager, Erika! This week we meet her counterpart, Dana. This dynamic duo is transforming our Midtown location into a well-oiled machine for all of you to have the best BLAST experience possible. While Dana is certainly not new to BLAST, she is excited to have the opportunity to join together her love for fitness and her career.

Although she’s been busy (read: really, really, really busy) learning everything BLAST, we caught up with Dana to ask her a few questions so all of our amazing BLASTers could get to know her a bit better! Check it out.


Where are you from?

D: Originally from Los Angeles, California, but I’ve been living the Southern life for about 12 years now!

Why do you LOVE BLAST?

D: I love BLAST because it’s a different workout I can’t get anywhere else or do on my own. Every day at BLAST is different and a challenge.

When did you start BLAST?

D: I’ve been a BLASTer for years, all the way back to some of the old locations. When I saw BLAST was hiring, I knew it was the perfect opportunity for me to blend my passion for BLAST and my career goals.

When did you start BLASTing/living a healthy lifestyle? What motivates you?

D: I wasn’t always the workout enthusiast I am today. But in the last 8 years or so, it’s helped me in more ways than just staying healthy; it’s introduced me to a world I wouldn’t otherwise have been a part of. A world of other people who are passionate about fitness, and I’ve even met some of my closest friends through the fitness community!

What motivates you?

D: My biggest motivations are the endorphins and the way you feel right after finishing your workout!


If you see Dana running around the Midtown studio be sure to say Hi and introduce yourself! She may be super busy, but she’s happy to meet as many of our BLASTers as she can; after all, you guys are the best part about being at BLAST!
