Success Stories

Dear Laleh and Karlen,

When I first approached you with the aspiration of stepping back onto the competitive stage after over a decade, I had my concerns. Balancing the responsibilities of a full-time job, being a devoted mother of two, and striving for excellence in the world of bodybuilding seemed like an overwhelming challenge. However, from our very first meeting, you instilled in me the confidence and belief that I could achieve anything with the right mindset and dedication.

Your tailored training programs were nothing short of transformative. Each session was meticulously designed to push my limits, sculpt my physique, and enhance my strength. Your keen eye for detail and your ability to adapt the training regimen to my evolving needs were instrumental in helping me reach my peak performance. Your knowledge of exercise physiology, nutrition, and recovery strategies truly set you apart as exceptional coaches.

As I stood under the spotlight, proudly holding my well-deserved pro bodybuilder title, I couldn't help but reflect on the remarkable journey we undertook together. Your coaching was not just about transforming my physique but also about nurturing my mental resilience and fostering a spirit of unwavering determination.

I look forward to continuing our partnership as I strive to set new milestones in my professional bodybuilding career. With you by my side, I am confident there are no limits to what we can achieve together.

 With heartfelt appreciation,

 Jenny Matkosky, OCB Pro

"Working with Laleh and Karlen at DNA has changed my life. I found the gym during the COVID-19 pandemic and was quickly introduced to their personalized nutrition and workout plans. For the first time, I felt like I was in control of my weight and was able to transform my body and my relationship with food.

I have now completed three natural bodybuilding competitions and feel great about my physical health going forward. I've always had discipline but lacked the knowledge to apply structured fitness and healthy eating to achieve my goals. I am now armed with the tools to be my best self and am grateful for the staff at DNA for their expertise and support."
