|Dory Berman |
As a youth, Dory picked up several bad habits, one of which was smoking. At 24, she could no longer make it up a flight of stairs without requiring life-support, and realized her life-style HAD to change. Dory joined a health club, which for her was a big deal. She had always ridiculed health clubs, viewing fitness as a complete waste of time. A few months into her membership, Dory reluctantly joined an aerobics class. After a lot of struggling, as most do, with the moves, directional changes, and generally keeping up, she eventually got the hang of it. More importantly, Dory saw an incredible change in her body, her attitude, and her energy. Two years later, she became a certified aerobics instructor. Dory was drawn to Aqua aerobics, quickly realizing the benefits of a water workout, and has been teaching "Aquacise" for over 10 years. Dory can be found every Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday leading a spirited, rigorous workout at the Mount Auburn Club pool. And on Tuesdays you can find Dory teaching BodyStep with energy and passion. Come join Dory and find out why she loves what she does so much! Dory also offers private and small group training at the Club.
