Dyamond has been in the fitness industry for about five years now, but his love for staying in shape and working toward goals started long before becoming a business owner. 

I played football my whole life and fitness was a part of staying in playing shape, and I enjoyed the fitness part just as much as playing. I played collegiate football and really got started in fitness then,” Dyamond shared with Hoboken Girl.

Dyamond graduated from Wesley College with a bachelor’s degree in kinesiology, and while obtaining this degree, he learned why he wanted to get into the industry in a big way.

“For my senior research project, I interned at a physical therapy clinic and realized I enjoyed helping people recover and reach their goals. So I combined my passion for fitness and helping people into one.

Now, through Dyamond Fitness, he is able to help people of all ages with varying goals achieve them. He says that his most common request is weight loss, but a mental improvement is actually what he wants for his clients. “I hope that people gain the confidence they have always wanted and for them to feel like the best versions of themselves. The results will come, but how you feel is what is most important.”

Dyamond is able to help his clients achieve their goals through more than just exercise, knowing that both physical and mental health play a role in full transformation

“I tell my clients to focus on creating a habit of exercising instead of the end goals initially. Short term goals and habits lead to the overall outcome goal and habit change is most important.”

In order to continue to offer the highest quality of training and information to his clients, Dyamond is continuing his pursuit of knowledge through higher education. He is currently working on a master’s degree in Applied Kinesiology and Physiology to stay on track with the latest trends and gain a further understanding of the science behind fitness results.

In response to COVID-19 restrictions, Dyamond has made sure to conduct many of his classes outside and limit the number of guests inside. Despite these changes, he says that his business has actually grown in 2020. “The pandemic has helped my business tremendously. I have decided to focus on growing my business and take the initiative instead of rolling over.”
