FitRev’s Member of the Month – Dina Gentile!
Introducing April’s Member of the Month, Dina Gentile! Dina has been with us since 2014 and has always been a big supporter of FitRev. Anyone that is lucky enough to workout next to Dina knows that she will not only give her absolute best, but she will motivate you throughout the entire workout. She also inspires her friends to come to FitRev and checks in on them after class. Dina is a coach through and through, and we are so lucky to have her part of our incredible FitRev community.
Dina, we are so excited to name you April’s Member of the Month. Way to switch up your schedule and wake up at 5am to workout with the crazies (you’re stuck with us now)! You are a true role model to FitRev as well to all our girls as you coach them through their soccer career. You are awesome and FitRev loves you!
We asked Dina to answer a few Q&A’s for FitRev to get to know her better. Check them out below!
When you’re not at FR or at work, where can we find you? During the school year, I am at the soccer fields coaching anyone who will listen to me! In the summer, I am in Maine drinking something tasty and hanging in the water with my kids and dogs.
Who or what keeps you motivated? My son and daughter. I want them to live a healthy lifestyle and be around fitness and athletics.
Any mantra you repeat during an especially grueling workout? Almost done! It is the people around me during a workout that push me forward. Stopping isn’t an option when you are with others.
Which superpower would you like to have? Time travel (I hope this is a super power) – I would love to change some of the mistakes I have made and visit with my father who passed away a few years ago. My favorite movie is Back to the Future!
Who has inspired you in your life and why? I think there are many people who come into your life at different stages that give you a boost of hope and faith.
What do you want to be when you grow up?
I am not growing up! But if I had to grow up…professional soccer player or professional karaoke singer!!!
If you had the luxury of time to re-read one book, which one would you choose?
The Notebook! I am such a romantic – really!
If you could live anywhere for one year where would you live?
Marco Island, Florida
What are your favorite and least favorite words?
Hello is my favorite word since it is the doorway to making someone smile and feel valued!
My least favorite word is busy…there is always time in the day to make something happen!
What is your biggest pet peeve? When people do not clean up after themselves! I hate messy areas.
What’s your favorite jelly bean flavor? Watermelon
If you had a warning label on you, what would it say? Fragile: Handle with Care
Starbucks or Dunkin?
What’s one thing you will never do again?
Go on the Yankee Cannonball with my son – he learned many new words on that ride!
What’s one thing about you someone wouldn’t know unless they really knew you?
I lived in Italy for almost every summer of my childhood and moved there for a full year when I was 13.
If you could design your very own workout what would it include?
I would just refer to Michelle and staff!!
What’s your favorite memory at FitRev? Lights going out during Kerri Powers class (she was subbing for Kim C.) and no one stopped their workout…..Kerri walked around with her iphone light and kept us moving!
Celebrate Dina with us for the whole month of April! Congrats, Dina! Enjoy the VIP Parking!
