About Us


A dictator is defined as a ruler with "total power" over a country, typically one who has obtained control by force.  Dictator Fitness is all about YOU having absolute power over your mind and forcing your body to change!  Half the battle is mental, and the other half deals with having the heart and courage to push through adversity to reach your goals.  You are the only person who stands in your way of achieving the success and results you want.  Your mind will defeat you well before anything else.  Fight back, when your mind is telling you to stay in bed a little longer,  take a day off, or not to push too hard.  Fight back, when your mind is saying its just one candy bar or its just one cheat meal.  Fight back when your body is saying its tired and to stop.  You have to be willing to wake up everyday and fight for what you want.  Strength is not given, its earned.  No Battle, No Victory!
