DELRAY BEACH — Sometimes there’s more in a name than you might think at first glance. Take Dirt Fitness, for example.

Fitness it’s about for sure, but the Dirt part of the name might bring to mind some sort of cross country scramble akin to a military obstacle course through muddy fields.

Actually, it’s an acronym for Designed Integrated Resistance Training — a fitness program that combines strength or resistance training and cardio created by Kelli Musa, who happens to be the founder and owner of Dirt Fitness. The company, which expanded to Delray Beach in November, celebrated its grand opening Wednesday evening with the help of the Delray Beach Chamber of Commerce. Dirt first

“It’s a full body work out every day you’re here,” says Caryn Mills, co-owner of the Delray Beach facility on NE 4th Street.

Musa developed the Dirt program to help herself recover from a workout injury. She opened a location in Boca Raton, which she still maintains, before making the move north to Delray Beach.

Dirt Fitness is not a gym in a traditional sense. All workouts are performed either in a class setting or one-on-one with an instructor.

Each session is 40 minutes and designed to burn between 700 and 1,000 calories. Students cycle through four strength-training exercises and one cardio, which could be running, jumping rope or riding a stationary bike. Each cycle is repeated four times.

The workouts vary from class to class. Musa outlines and demonstrates the day’s exercises so that each student uses the proper technique and form.

“It’s tailored to everybody, every fitness level, every age,” Mills said. There is one exception: no children.

Memberships are sold on a monthly and yearly basis. Individual sessions may be bought beginning at $20.
