What is Dig Your Deepest?
Dig Your Deepest (DYD) is a revolutionary approach to personal fitness and lifestyle. It is based on the belief that the most important step to turning a hope or want into a reality is to be mentally, physically and spiritually ready for it. Through Missy’s unique coaching and training services, you can transform your lifestyle.
“The fitness industry can be really aesthetically focused but I fundamentally believe that when we get back to what fitness really is intended for, which is to be stronger, healthier, fight obesity, improve cardiovascular health, we are doing it right. “

Dig Your Deepest has a proven track record of getting the results you want.
“Missy is a great motivator and challenges me to push past my boundaries. She is encouraging in every way she can. (I like that the exercises are full of variety and that she incorporates flexibility, strength, stability, balance and endurance). She’s a professional! She’s dedicated to her own fitness regiment and genuinely wants to help others get fit!”
“It can be intimidating to try to get into shape. You worry about people judging you or your lack of fitness; however, with Missy, every step towards success was something to celebrate. It truly helps motivate individuals, like myself, who are not particularly fitness fanatics. I am much more motivated to continue because I can actually see and measure my results.”
“Missy has helped me regain strength, health, confidence, and muscle mass. Oh yeah, and has completely changed my mindset about certain exercises I dislike, ie. burpees! She is extremely helpful in motivating and pushing me during those days that we all have when we are low energy, to workout. She also emphasizes the importance of allowing adequate recovery after workouts, which I used to negatively think of as ‘lazy days.'”
“Missy will help guide you in the direction that is best for you. She is accountable which in my opinion is a must have! My health and lifestyle has changed tremendously. I went from doing nothing to being an avid CrossFitter. If it wasn’t for meeting Missy I may have totally chickened out and never signed up for CrossFit. And for that I am forever grateful!“
“I respect Missy’s dedication to the process of personal training. I’m stronger and I can actually see the difference in the physical structure of my body. I appreciate her dedication to my health and fitness. Her attention to form is exceptional and she knows how to push me past what I think I can accomplish. I am a better me because of her.”
“To workout with Missy is to feel fully supported in your fitness goals. Missy is a master at keeping the training sessions lively, challenging, and fun. I’ve never had fun during a workout before, but training with Missy changed all that. Missy is as non-judgmental as they come; it will feel like working out with a supportive friend. And the progress I’ve made in only a few sessions is exciting and motivating.”

Frequently Asked Questions
A: The most important step to turning a hope or want into a reality is to be mentally, physically and spiritually ready for it. By digging deep, you will gain such a greater understanding of where you have been, what you need that you do not yet have and where you want to go.
A: I want to make sure you get set up for success when it comes to nutrition and diet as they are such a big part of the equation to reaching your lifestyle and fitness goals. We will get into an awareness of what you are putting in your body and what is going to give you the energy and nutrients you need. Beyond that, for a more customized nutrition plan and to really dive into diet, I do partner with Certified Nutritionists and Dietitians that you can add A La Carte services to your coaching package as part of your DYD journey.
A: I meet clients where they are at in terms of fitness and then smartly progress them from there. We usually spend the first month, at least, focusing on increasing stability, core strength, and improving cardio capacity. I am a big advocate for moving correctly, first and foremost, and as clients master movements, I will level them up! I am also not one of those trainers that will scream in your face, but I do push you. We never know what we can do unless we try.
A: I have an assortment of different weighted dumbbells and kettle-bells, along with weighted soft medicine balls. I have resistance bands, a BOSU ball, even an old-school stepper! My favorite latest addition is a battle rope, as it gets the heart rate up very quickly, and there are so many full body movements to do with it. I frequently add to my collection of equipment as the needs of my clients grow.
A: I am currently set up to rent space at Real Fitness in Playa Del Rey for Personal Training clients. I also, depending on scheduling, train clients at their homes and at parks. Classes also are currently outdoors, however, my goal is to have my own indoor space to have them and evolve them even more!
A: I am a big believer in feeling a connection. I follow this guiding principle in almost all that I do in life because that genuine, authentic connection is what builds trust which is what success is built on. That is something I want for any of the coaching partnerships I take on. I want you to truly know and feel that I am just as invested in your success as you are.
A: I sure do! I currently run Boot Camps for 10-12 week periods in El Segundo a few days/times each week. I also have special workout events, so get on my email list to find out when they are happening.
A: Workout styles vary from session to session and from client to client, but two of my favorite styles are AMRAP’s (As Many Reps As Possible) and Tababta (set work and set rest). I love getting creative with programming and workouts are never exactly the same!
