Our certified fitness professionals know how to get you fit. But don’t take our word for it. Here are stories from actual San Diego area clients.


“Body by Tanya!” That’s what I tell all my family and friends when they see me! 

They all ask, what have you been doing, you look so good!  “Body by Tanya!”

 My family and I have all been working with Tanya at DFC for over a year now. I have gone from a 38″ waist to a 34″ waist. I haven’t been a 34″ waist since high school!! In addition, when I started with Tanya I weighed 235 LBS, I am now down to 208 LBS. muscular pounds! I feel great! 

When my wife and two daughters and I started working with Tanya, I didn’t know what to expect. Would it be like the typical gym where your just a number and treated all the same and then it ends? But no! From day one we felt welcomed at DFC ! Lorraine, Tanya and all the staff there treated us like family. 

Tanya has taught us the RIGHT way to work out, how to eat good and how to maintain the results we have gotten! I have worked out on and off all my life , but never have I had a trainer as knowledgeable and professional as Tanya. She has motivated and inspired all of us to want to be there every week and that has changed all our lives!  Not only is Tanya a great trainer but a “Coach”, that can motivate her team!!

 Yes……. Going to DFC every week has changed all our lives! It was truly the best decision I ever made for the health of my family. 

“Body by Tanya!!” Yes….that’s what I say!!

Lorraine Plowman, a professional physical fitness consultant and a dedicated personal trainer, and her team of personal trainers at Dimensional Fitness Concepts have great knowledge of body mechanics, muscle function and are capable of determining the individual abilities of their clients. Her pleasant and positive attitude is a great asset to her willingness to work with her clients at their personal fitness levels. Lorraine and her team instill confidence and encouragement to make you want to work further and apply yourself more diligently.  Dimensional Fitness Concepts maintains a welcoming environment that allows you to comfortably work out and seek advise from trainers openly unlike other fitness centers that are lacking the one on one connection with members.  I have attended Dimensional Fitness Concepts for 14yrs and train with Lorraine who has helped me achieve my best fitness potential.  I am extremely satisfied with the physical fitness consulting and training I receive from Lorraine.  I recommend Lorraine and any trainer working with her within Dimensional Fitness Concepts to anyone interested in increasing his or her physical conditioning and reaching his or her best potential.

I have been training at DFC with Lorraine for nearly 2 years now.  I and others have seen a difference in my physique and posture.  Lorraine is very attentive and supportive of my individual needs goals and she is fun to be with.  The gym is very clean and has a very comprehensive array of equipment.  The cliental and other trainers at DFC are great people to be around.  I am always looking forward to my training sessions with Lorraine.
– David, Temecula

Dimensional Fitness Center (DFC) is a gym that I have been going to for the last four years after having tried all the big chain conglomerates.  The gym which is private is owned by Lorraine Plowman who takes excellent care of her clients’ needs.  This gym is the ideal place to work out because it is meticulously clean and makes you feel you are not just one of many thousands walking through the door. The machines are selective but well maintained.  The trainers are professional and friendly and are only too happy to tailor make their training to suit the individual needs of their clients.  And the clients themselves are an assortment of earnest young people who use the gym as a training site rather than a dating site and older people, some of who are in their 80s, who are there to work on building muscle, balance, stamina, and strength.  I would recommend DFC highly and without reservation not only because of the reasons listed but also because I have with the help of my trainer built a body that I am happy with.

Training with Lorraine is a pleasure. She does a great job working me out and pushing me to do my best; at the same time making sure I won’t hurt myself.
– Michael, Fallbrook

Training with Lorraine is always a very beneficial experience. She respects my limitations but always knows when to push me. I appreciate her knowledge of training, and helpful tips on everything that goes with a healthy body. She has a very positive influence on me. DFC has many equipment options to allow me to mix up my workout. It a very professional and friendly place.

My husband and I have been coming to train with Tanya since January 1, 2011. I originally thought it would be a great present for my husband to come see her for a couple of weeks, but I also decided to join them and just after a few weeks we were seeing results. It not only has helped us physically but also in our sport which is archery. My husband and I are competitive archers and through Tanya’s training we have been building our core muscle, which has helped us to hold steadier on the bulls eye. I have won two State Championships since January and am ranked number one in the State of California. We are still training and loving it. Tanya is always thinking up new ways to make us stronger and to live a healthier life. We never get bored with the same routines. Thanks Tanya you are the best!

Before I met Lorraine I was over 200 pounds and sick of trying fad diets only to get temporary results and gain the weight back. Lorraine quickly taught me how to eat right and workout hard. Whenever I start to get discourages Lorraine is always there to motivate me to get back on track. She’s tough when she needs to be tough and she knows exactly what her clients need to achieve their goals. Even in the midst of her busy life her work doesn’t end when she leaves the gym, she still makes time out of her day to connect with me. Since working out with Lorraine, I have lost 60 pounds and completed many half marathons. I am now signed up to run a full marathon and know I couldn’t do it without the help of Lorraine and everyone else at DFC.  DFC has become a place of refuge for me, when it comes to every aspect of my life. The people there have become my family and the moment I walk in the door I am motivated and loved by everyone there.

Once I started training with Lorraine, I quickly found out why so many people love her and the way she treats her clients. She is always there to motivate me whether its with inspiring words during an intense workout or at home through an encouraging text message. I no longer have to try crazy diets to get the body I want because Lorraine has taught me how to fuel my body with the right foods on a daily basis. Since training with her, I have gone down in body fat each month and have added major definition to my legs, abs and arms.  Lorraine has completely changed my view on fitness and nutrition and it’s now a permanent part of my everyday life!

I have been working out with Lorraine at DFC for the past 6 years and at 55 I’m in the best shape of my life!  Lorraine takes the no-nonsence approach to training and weight loss: Healthy eating and regular strength training and cardio…no magic pills or fad diets. She stays on top of the latest in the fitness industry and keeps my workouts challenging and fun.  DFC is an extremely friendly and clean fitness studio which makes getting in shape fun.

I have been a Dimensional Fitness Fan for 10 years, I first met Lorraine after having my 4th child. I was out of shape and the heaviest I had ever been. She helped me get back in shape, she dared to stop eating sugar, of course I accepted the challenge and after a while I didn’t miss sugar. I changed my eating habits for the better. I never dieted I just made better choices. I lost the weight quickly but I wanted more so after a couple years Lorraine had me running farther than I ever have. Stronger and leaner I was down to 14 % body fat at the age of 46. I got sidetracked and went through some very stressful times so I am back at the gym its only been about 4 months and I can feel my stomach is getting flatter and I am getting stronger again. I know it will take time especially since I am older and everything just doesn’t melt like it use to. Its exciting to walk out of the gym knowing I worked hard and the results are showing. Not to mention everyone there is friendly, positive and its very welcoming place to be.

Lorraine and the DFC crew have been so great and inspiring! I just tied the knot last June and wanted to look amazing on our special day, as would any bride! Lorraine helped me get focused and pushed me passed my normal limits. The pictures from our wedding show it all! I hit my goal and I’m still going strong. The training staff at DFC continues to exceed my expectations…never a dull moment. There is never a day where I find out there is a muscle I didn’t know I had!

Dear Lorraine, having known you for 20 years, you are the constant professional in overall fitness, whether it’s exercise, diet, or keeping a positive mental attitude. I love all the new equipment as well as changes you have made this year to DFC. It is such a clean, well-organized, friendly environment to exercise and work out in. Last year, I was “missing in action” for most of the year. I truly appreciate your reaching out to me, getting me fired up and paired up with an amazing trainer. It was and is a great gift. I am feeling so much better mentally as well as physically and without you reaching out and helping me get back on track, I would have just remained stagnant. In closing thank you, thank you, thank you!

My name is Maureen and I have been a member of DFC for 9 years. Tanya has trained me over the last 15 months. The workouts we have done have helped me more than I could have imagined. I have 3 kinds of arthritis and some days my body does not cooperate. Tanya always finds a way to change things up so I can do an exercise even on “off” days. Sometimes the devil is in the details and Tanya is the angel in my life working those details in my favor. If you really want what works and if you want results, ask for Tanya. I will always be grateful for all she does for me to make my day to day tasks easier. I can’t thank Tanya enough for all she does for me.

Since working out with Lorraine, I’m more energetic, flexible and definitely stronger. Lorraine inspires me to stay focused and on track. She always reminds me to take one day at a time, one meal at a time, and never give up. I just turned 60 and feel amazing. Thank you, Lorraine, for working with me.
