VIDA RX Instructor Profile: Tami

Name: Tami DeVitis Tami headshot

Title: Group Program Manager for VIDA Fitness Verizon Center

How long have you worked for VIDA?

I have worked for Vida for 6 years!

How long have you been teaching VIDA RX?

I have been teaching RX for all 6 years (back to when it was called Group Power).

What’s a quick explanation of VIDA RX for someone who doesn’t know what it is?

VIDA RX is an entertaining and a complete full-body workout in one hour using weighted plates, a bar bell and a step. RX introduces beginners to weight training and also helps regular class goers stay consistent with weight training.
What are the fitness benefits of RX?

With professional instructors and a whole class around you, as well as motivational music to work out along to, VIDA RX ensures you not only enjoy your work out, but also give it everything you’ve got for the hour! Your body will tone up as you gain muscle and as the fat drops off you will notice improved shape and definition around your body.

Out of all the classes you teach (note: Tami teaches A TON of classes), what’s something that you look forward to when headed to teach an RX class?

I look forward to seeing the regular RX attendees and meeting new participants interested in adding strength workouts to their regimen! RX is really just a great time. Awesome music and challenging workouts, every class, guaranteed.

I love seeing everyone get out of their comfort zones, really pushing themselves further each class and hearing about the results they are getting from the format of the class!

Why should someone break out of their routine to come take RX if they never have before?

Want a great workout that challenges your entire body? Then try VIDA RX!

RX is a type of aerobic class that also involves strength-training moves. By combining both together, you can burn more calories than doing either alone. Your body is getting all it needs in one workout, which saves time and effort. We already know that aerobics helps to burn fat and increase cardiovascular fitness. When the heart pumps blood more efficiently and the lungs breathe more efficiently, you can increase your endurance and stamina.

What’s a result you commonly see or hear from your consistent RX attendees?

They are getting stronger and I know it as I see the weight increases on their bars! It proves that hard work equals results.

What’s your favorite RX track right now? Or favorite RX track ever (in the archives)?

My favorite current track from the latest release is “Let’s Get Ridiculous” by Redfoo, and my favorite archived track I like to pull out every so often is “Pour Some Sugar on Me” by Def Leopard for an intense shoulder track!
