DANA MORDOV - AMBASSADOR
When did you become a fitness trainer?
I became a fitness trainer at a very young age, when I was 16 years old. I have been active all my life, playing sports such as tennis, running, and dancing. I also, competed growing up, and even won some of my competitions.
What classes do you teach?
I teach a diversity of classes: TRX, kickboxing, power pump, interval training, and indoor cycling. HIIT is my favorite class to teach, because it is high energy, and the moves are very intense. It is really an effective workout!
How do you motivate your clients?
I motivate my clients by making the workouts fun, and by emphasizing the progress and results they've made over a period of time. This reminds them of why they started in the first place. Sometimes, like all of us, we feel tired and unmotivated, so this is when I really try to inspire my clients. I believe, having a positive mindset, is one of the main ingredients to success!
How do you prevent yourself from sport injuries?
I workout at least 5 hours a day, 6 days a week. So, it is really important for me to take care of my body, so I can prevent sport injuries. I use a professional foot support, because I suffer from foot problems. I also make sure to consume enough proteins, minerals, and vitamins to stay healthy. Practicing proper warm ups and cool downs is crucial.
How do you achieve a work life balance with your busy schedule?
As a young woman, it is important for me to maintain a healthy work-life balance. I have already served in the IDF for 9 months. Every day, after work, I take a 30-minute nap, and then start the second part of my day. And every week, I take one day, to completely disconnect from everything (mind/body). Additionally, I try to sleep 8 hours a night, because I know the importance of sleep, and how it affects my body during training. Our bodies need recovery time.
What do you like to do for fun in Tel Aviv?
I like to spend time with family and friends. I also enjoy traveling, going to the beach, drawing, and playing piano.
