Personal trainer and group fitness instructor Dimitris Kandris has been involved in the fitness industry for 28 years. Through it all he has stayed enthusiastic about his passion. “I love presenting to the world my love of fitness,” Dimitris says. Aside from presenting, he attends charity events and helps children and older adults stay active.

“Knowledge is power,” says Dimitris, who makes sure to stay up-to-date with the latest industry trends and news. He encourages others to do the same. Dimitris also believes that the industry as a whole needs to decrease marketing tactics. “Marketing is great to promote activity to consumers, but too much becomes worthless.”

Dimitris loves teaching and participating in a variety of fitness classes, including Zumba®, STOTT PILATES®, Spinning®, BodyPump™ and hatha yoga. He also really enjoys participating in Zumbathons® to raise money for different charities.
