5 Breathtaking Hikes in the Bay Area

November 7, 2014 |

San Francisco’s Indian Summer is coming to an end, but that doesn’t mean it’s time to head indoors. We are now entering the 9 week holiday stretch, which typically means an increase in our calories. Remember all that Halloween candy you didn’t give out to kids? Standing in line for those pumpkin spice lattes, and you go for the pumpkin pie bar as well? All those Christmas cookies being brought into work? What better way to burn off some extra calories before your holiday feasts than to hike in the gorgeous Bay Area? Since it doesn’t get really wet until January, take these next couple of months to get outside and explore the area!

Take advantage of the sun while you can and go on a beautiful hike recommended by DIAKADI’s top notch trainers.

Doris, Our Very Own Spirited Friend

October 31, 2014 |

There have been numerous reports that we have a ghost at DIAKADI. Seriously…Most of the staff is certain of the fact. Some of the trainers and even a couple of clients have had a run in with the ghost named “Doris” by front desk staff and trainer Cristian Luecke.

Not usually a believer in the hocus pocus spirit world mumbo jumbo, Cristian has felt a female spirit presence numerous times and even once saw a female form out of the corner of his eye at 9:45pm…yes, he remembers the exact time.

“As I was at the front windows of the gym, out of the corner of my eye, I saw a female form dressed in a 1920’s era dress with blood on her apron. The first time she walked from the Consultation room around the bike parking and into the Trainer Lounge area. Since it was a “comforting” presence and I couldn’t believe what I saw, I went about my business. It wasn’t until I saw her AGAIN walking along the same path, that I got spooked. The gym was closed and no one else was inside. That is when I knew there was a ghost, and I named her Doris.”

What Do You Really Want?

October 15, 2014 |

Many of my clients come to me to figure out the answer to this very question. They have lives that are pretty good but they still feel like something is missing. It’s just not awesome. They want more.  And they want to know what they can do about it.

The first thing we do is figure out and identify what you really want. What would your ideal life look like? Your work life? Your personal life? At first glance, it seems like these are simple questions to answer. And we often treat them as such – giving simple answers where we write down a few details and we’re good, right?
