Today we’d like to introduce you to Manndola Dorsilon.
Hi Manndola, please kick things off for us with an introduction to yourself and your story.
I started off as a student of Hot Yoga. The practice and elements of the series transformed my life so much that I immediately began brainstorming ways to bring heated workouts to the world of modern fitness. It took me about 1.5 years to actually sequence, layout and solidify my workout known as it is today. Once I had my blueprint, I taught a pilot class in Beverly Hills and the rest is history. Thanks to my amazing clients and word of mouth, I’ve been able to expand out to studios and in 2019 won #1 workout in Los Angeles with hundreds of 5 star reviews and counting.
Dolafit is a combination workout that is heated to 105 degrees with 80% humidity. Unfortunately, you won’t find many clips of my class online or videos of what we do…that’s done on purpose 🙂 Cameras/phones aren’t allowed! My class is a safe space for everyone taking and I’d like to keep it that way as long as I possibly can. The only way to experience the magic of DF is to be there. Every class is electrifying, different and communal! I never take it for granted and I’m extremely grateful that I get to wake up and do what I love.
Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
One of the challenges that I still deal with is that a lot of people say my class is too challenging or that they’re too scared to take it… I find those statements hilarious🤣 I will admit my class is pretty tough, however it gives you something to work on! NOBODY comes into my class killing it and executing every drill/set perfectly… NO ONE. Everyone struggles in my class regardless of how many classes you’ve taken or your level of athleticism (NBA, NFL, etc.)That’s the beauty of it to me though. I always say the class doesn’t get easier, you just get better!
Ive definitely had other personal struggles within this industry and building a brand isn’t easy! However, looking back I can see how those moments in my life help to build me to the instructor and man I am today. Hard work and perseverance always prevail is what I try to remind myself!
Great, so let’s talk business. Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
In Dolafit, we work out because we love our bodies, not because we hate it. The physical change will happen naturally, all you have to do it show up and put in the work and you will see your body transform….quickly! Also, know that you’re not alone! In class, we are all supportive and help push each other to the next level. I’ve NEVER experienced that out of the many workouts I’ve tried in the past and that makes me extremely proud. Proud that I’m building a community that is rich in some of the most overlooked values in the world today… which is kindness and support!
We love surprises, fun facts and unexpected stories. Is there something you can share that might surprise us?
That I’m a professional Opera singer and Actor.
