Daniel Lyons (MDI D’ly) is our lead Motivational Drill Instructor for the 4S Ranch San Diego morning location. MDI D’ly spent his entire life playing sports at all levels that included football, baseball, and basketball and ending his athletic career playing baseball at the collegiate level here in San Diego.
Working out and being healthy have always been at the forefront of his life. After getting out of competitive sports, he needed to find a way to keep himself motivated to maintain a FIT lifestyle. He was what you would call a “gym rat” until he came across our MDI 8 – Fitness Boot Camp in 2011 when he joined as a member. “I have never had a workout that compares to it! It pushes you beyond what you think you can accomplish and the camaraderie that comes with it cannot be found in a gym. The friendly competition amongst the members will push you beyond your own limitations becoming better than you were the day before”.
After training with MDI 8 – Fitness Boot Camp for about 5 months or so, he decided to take his passion for fitness and healthy living to another level. He started training directly under MDI Nichols at the San Diego flagship location for a couple months. In August 2012, MDI D’ly became the 1st certified independent business owner/operator for MDI 8 – Fitness Boot Camp when we opened up our instructor opportunities. “Being an instructor is not just about me accomplishing my fitness goals, but it allows me to help others transform their bodies as well. Helping out and giving back in an industry I not only have experience in, but also love, is priceless. ”
