Opening of a new training center for the D1 exercise in Bloomingdale’s

A D1 training center has opened in Bloomingdale’s, and although it’s suitable for all ages, high school students and young athletes seem particularly interested.

Owners Christian and Deanna Hess join 50 other D1 locations nationwide. The franchise is backed by several professional athletes, including Phoenix Suns NBA All-Star Chris Paul and Los Angeles Rams linebacker Von Miller. It was founded by Will Bartholomew, a former University of Tennessee football player whose career with the Denver Broncos was cut short by a knee injury in 2001. His coaching college athletes in Nashville led to the creation of D1.

Christian Hess says inspiring others to perform at their best through fitness motivated him to join the D1 family. He said more than 100 people have signed up for classes since the Bloomingdale facility opened in early February, mostly teenagers. The gym is located at 400 W. Army Trail Road, Unit 103.

D1 specializes in classroom exercises and high intensity interval training.

The Hesses said the gym works with people who have different levels of experience and fitness goals, and is focused on maintaining fitness levels for both amateur and professional athletes, with workout programs for children from the age of 7.

“People are seeing an increase in speed and confidence in their kids,” Christian Hess said.

“They see their goals being achieved and that’s what we’re after. As people who really want to have a positive impact on our community, it’s the heart, passion and purpose of this brand that really resonated in we.”

The Hess family are all athletes, including the couple’s three children.

The gymnasium organizes classes for up to 15 people, lasting from 50 minutes to an hour. Each class includes warm-up, cardio, strength, conditioning, and cool-down periods. A subscription costs between $150 and $200 per month.

“Chris and Deanna are the ideal candidates to bring the D1 training experience to Bloomingdale’s,” D1 COO Dan Murphy said in a statement. “We are thrilled to welcome them to the D1 family and are confident in their ability to show the Bloomingdale area what they have been missing.”
