Community Educator Spotlight | Linden Dukes & Daniel Dennis w/ Getting It Done Fitness

We are pleased to spotlight Linden Dukes & Daniel Dennis of Getting it Done Fitness

About Getting It Done Fitness

Improving life by exceeding limitations we place on ourselves, that is the motto Getting It Done Fitness lives by.  Daniel Dennis and Linden Dukes believe that physical fitness can only be achieved by strong mental changes working alongside physical exertion.  Coming from two entirely different backgrounds in physical fitness allows us to meet clients where they currently are in their journey along with helping them to set reachable goals. The founders met in 2017 doing their first bodybuilding competition.  Competing against each other not only made them strive to be better while building a unique friendship built on mutual respect and honesty.   It was then they both realized they wanted to see people’s lives change and decided to create a business focused on physical and mental health

When did you start your business?

GIDF: We have been teaching fitness for little over a year and began the business half a year ago.

Where did you get the inspiration for your business brand?

GIDF:  It was a combination of training people for years and realizing a need after we both competed in our 1st bodybuilding show. We realized our own mental toughness and willingness to learn separated us from our competition after talking with a client and they gave us praise for how we get things done the name was born.

What makes you want to teach/do your business?

GIDF: We realized how fitness is a life long journey full of ups and downs, twist and turns. We wanted to help people to enjoy living a healthier life with permanent changes. There are many people out there that don’t realize how to achieve their ideal physique, Getting It Done Fitness takes whatever goal given to us and exceeds it.

For you how does what you do as a brand or business related to

What do you feel is the most challenging aspect of your career?

GIDF:Helping people to set short term goals to reach their long term. Breaking down how to get there in a way we both can agree will help them achieve their goals.

When you aren’t working what do you like to do?

GIDF: Competitive bodybuilding (men’s bodybuilding and men’s classic physique), spend time with family, Netflix and chill.

What is it that inspires you to keep going as an entrepreneur?

GIDF: Meeting my clients where they are, and being able to do that on their schedule not limited to the agreement I have with any company.

What are you working on now?

What has been your best experience thus far in your business?

GIDF: Seeing clients transform before our very eyes, mentally and physically.

What has been your biggest challenge as a company? Have you been able to overcome that challenge? If so, how?

GIDF: Proving our validity in a field full of gimmicks and half-truths. Overcoming that challenge is an everyday battle due to social media, google, YouTube, and other forms of info available at the touch of a button.

What advice do you have for others interested in pursuing their own business.

GIDF: Pick a field, find a need in that field, meet that need.

Is there anything else you’d like the readers to know?

GIDF: There are 2 owners at Getting It Done Fitness and both come from very different backgrounds. One of us being skinny and gaining weight to transform, the other being heavier and losing weight to transform. Everyone knows that with either goal in mind comes different changes you must be willing and need to make to meet your goals both physical and mental. We have been where most people are trying to change from and we are living/ breathing prove it CAN be done.
