Daphnie Yang, Creator of HIIT IT! On Having A Positive Mindset, Running, and Fitness

Are you ready to feel empowered, inspired, motivated?  Today’s guest is all about making you feel good, bringing you joy, and powering you with the strength and confidence you need to live your best life!

From her popular fitness class, HIIT IT!, and her Power Hour networking events to her inspiring Instagram feed @Definedbydaphnie, and her podcast Just One More!, you are definitely going to love this conversation with fitness entrepreneur, innovator, and founder, Daphnie Yang.

Daphnie turned her love of dance, passion for running, talent for performing and experience in personal training into a life and career she loves with the launch of her wildly popular fitness class, HIIT IT!, which burst onto the fitness scene in October 2013. What began as a group workout with a few clients in Central Park has grown into the ultimate high intensity interval training workout.

On today’s episode we talk about how running transformed her life, where her journey with dance and fitness began, the narrative she created that almost prevented her from building her brand, having a positive mindset, and of course her sweat-drenching, fun-infused workout, HIIT IT! The one hour, 800 calorie burning workout she created that blasts body fat, torches calories, sculpts lean muscle mass, strengthens the core, skyrockets the metabolism and improves cardiovascular endurance.

Empowered with a BFA in Dance from NYU in 2007, multiple International Sports Sciences Association (ISSA) Certifications in Personal Training, Pre and Post Natal Training, Marathon Coaching and Nutrition Counseling, Daphnie has motivated hundreds of people to reduce body fat, sculpt lean muscle mass, and run marathons, but most importantly, she has helped countless people achieve balance and wellness in their day to day lives. HIIT IT! classes are taught at Athleta Flatiron and Primary in NYC. Daphnie currently trains clients six days a week at her gym space in downtown Manhattan or on-site at clients homes and corporate offices.  To learn more, head over to her website, www.daphnieyang.com or follow her on social @definedbydaphnie, @powerhournyc, @hiititnyc or @justonemorepod.
