Meet Jamie Hellems of Dynamis Crossfit in Carlsbad

Today we’d like to introduce you to Jamie Hellems.

Dynamis Crossfit was founded in 2012 by Marcus Dedina. Through a love of helping people reach their fitness and wellness goals, Dynamis’ intent was to provide a safe, fun, clean, egoless environment.

Fast-forward to 2017 and Dynamis is co-owned by both Marcus and Jamie, who also operates as General Manager.

Together, they continue to run one of the top Crossfit gyms in North County. They pride themselves on their community and their proven methodology to help their members reach their maximum potential.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
There are no shortages of Crossfit gyms in Southern California, particularly in North County San Diego. In the early going it was difficult to gain members and make the business work. However, due to the environment we’ve created, the members came and they told their friends. We’re now reaching new highs and continuing to grow every month.

Dynamis Crossfit – what should we know? What do you guys do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
We are a Crossfit gym. Our workouts are always changing, creating muscle confusion.

The movements we do are functional (ie. movements you do in your day to day life like squatting and deadlifts). There are no machines. You ARE the machine. We get it done with free weights, simple gymnastics equipment (ie. pull-up bar, rings, ect) and simple body weight plyometrics.

Finally, we take these ever-changing, functional movements and perform them at a high intensity. Our members are constantly reminded that you should be impressed by intensity, not volume or weight.

What moment in your career do you look back most fondly on?
Seeing the gym grow and our members reach their goals on a daily basis. Every month we celebrate everyone’s PRs (personal records). However, no PR is more celebrated than the next. While we do hold competitor level Crossfit classes, our main focus is the average Joe who just wants to improve their overall fitness.
