Dino Nowak: The Gym-Free Workout

CBN.com Dino Nowak is not the latest fitness guru promoting the next fad diet. Instead, he is a personal trainer that has researched and studied the fitness industry from the inside out.

“Fitness is not found in a specific size or shape, there are so many diets out there, and America is unhealthier than ever. Our society is always looking for the quick fix, and this industry is generating billions of dollars off their misplaced trust, “ says Dino.

His book, The Final Makeover: Your 40-Day Guide to Personal Fitness highlights the myths and fads of the industry and explains the importance of the emotional and spiritual aspects of your health and how they impact your physical body. One of the greatest myths to weight loss is instant gratification.  Consumers spend billions of dollars on weight loss. 

“But we still leave this world obese,” says Dino. “No where are we taught about instantaneous results. The Bible is clear about perserverance, self-control, and discipline. We need to use our bodies to glorify Him.”                

Dino, a self-described military brat, got use to taking care of himself at an early age. By the age of 17 he had practically traveled the world and been stationed in Wisconsin, Hawaii, California, Oklahoma, and North Carolina. In high school, Dino began establishing his own identity through his athletic ability as a soccer star and weight lifter.

After graduation, Dino attended Rochester School of Technology in Upstate New York. After college, Dino earned an engineering degree and went to work for a pharmaceutical company. But he soon realized that was not what he wanted to do for the rest of his life. His real passion in life was health and fitness. During college, Dino had worked as a personal trainer at a gym and received certification from the Cooper Institute for Aerobic Research.

A friend of Dino’s invited him to a Jim Brickman concert. Afterwards, Dino was invited backstage where he met the musician and offered some fitness advice. Brickman was impressed with Dino and asked him to be his fitness trainer. Two weeks later, Dino moved to California to work with Brickman as his trainer.

While working in Hollywood as a consultant and trainer to powerful Hollywood celebrities, Dino began to notice that these people were talking with him about their problems during their fitness sessions. As he began to emotionally understand where these people were coming from, he also saw this as an open door to talk about the Lord.

Realizing their emptiness, Dino created a program called ESP Wellness – which stands for emotional, spiritual, and physical fitness. [Two years ago, Dino moved from Los Angeles to Nashville, TN.] The spiritual aspect is the cornerstone of Dino’s program. 

“This concept deals with being set apart, not trying to be a certain size or shape,” says Dino. “You don’t have to be a size 2. Weight loss is about glorifying God. If you could do it in a way to inspire others, it gives you the opportunity to witness to someone else.”

Dino grew up in a loving Catholic family. However, it wasn’t until college that he dedicated his life to the Lord when a fraternity brother invited him to a non-denominational church. It was at that service that Dino began to more closely examine the question of God’s existence. The next Sunday Dino returned to the same church and gave his life to the Lord.

Dino will demonstrate on The 700 Club exercises to do while rushed for the holidays involving an exercise ball, dining room chair, water bottles, and steps.
