One of our Becoming Elli private Facebook group members, Diane Allen, has been following a program for two years called Original Strength, that she says is making a huge difference to women over 50. She introduced us to Dani Almeyda who owns a local gym and a national certified program.

Dani Almeyda has worked in the health and fitness industry for the last 12 years. Throughout her whole life, health and wellness have had a major influence on her life. Whether it was from her experience as collegiate athlete, as a Director of Campus Recreation, or as a Fitness Professional, her experiences and formal education have provided her with a unique perspective and skillset.

Dani is a co-owner of OS Institute in North Carolina and OSi Online, and has a master’s degree in Exercise Science. She brings an abundance of energy, passion, and an incredible drive to help the world regain its Original Strength.

“You were not meant to be broken. You were intended to be strong, healthy and resilient. You can regain the strength you were supposed to have, the strength that you once had.”

We discuss:

  • Pressing RESET to regain balance in the nervous system
  • Recovering strength after taking time off
  • What she means by minimum effective dose
  • How to keep a positive mindset for getting back into routines
  • How she inspires her clients and athletes
  • The philosophy behind the Original Strength program

  1. I am humbled by the shout-out during the podcast ! I am not exaggerating when I say OSI saved my life. I started with Dani and OS Institute as an over weight 60 year old who had a sedentary job. The movement routine and community I developed there have facilitated a loss of 35 pound, running of 5Ks with the running group and learning to paddle board reduced blood markers and coming off prediabetes medication. I have also built muscle through the regular weight lifting programming and nutritional coaching. As for resets, not only do they help with my stress but we do resets between weight sets and between cardio sets . You can feel the recovery! Now, being in a broken foot boot myself, I appreciate the support of our community to keep me active! When I show up, someone can help me modify all of the movements so I don’t lose conditioning for these 6 weeks or stress my injury.

    1. Diane,
      We are so happy that you shared Dani with us!
      I am so very happy to hear of your success in reaching these goals. Having a broken foot is no fun, but having a supportive community and knowing that you can get back after a break in your conditioning definitely feels good, doesn’t it!
      Thanks again,
