Who We Are

Welcome to DSDQ Fitness! We are D'Allen and Ryan Pretlow, and we live in Fayetteville, NC with our 5 beautiful children. We are fortunate in our marriage to share a true passion for fitness. We have over 8 years of experience in group training and in individual coaching. In a group setting, we have learned how to connect with others while teaching them the correct form and technique during workouts. Over the years, we have worked with very diverse groups and individuals. Other than raising happy and healthy children, we've found our purpose: to help others find confidence and achieve healthy self-esteem through changing their bodies. Look up... change the body. The mind WILL follow!

Ryan knows this first hand. After struggling with her weight throughout childhood and adolescence, Ryan topped the scale at 240 lbs. She was miserable, and her self esteem was absolutely broken. She decided to take matters into her own hands. Through exercise and proper nutrition, Ryan lost 75 lbs. and has been able to keep this weight off for the past 9 years. So, we have been there. We know what you need to do find yourself through fitness.

Our Philosophy

Here's the short version:

What We Don't Want From You

  • Your money. We are not in this for your money. We want to help you reach all your goals while being a good steward of your money and staying in your budget.
  • Your excuses. If you like making excuses, go somewhere else!

What We Do Want From You

  • Your commitment. Commit to us, to the workouts, to the nutrition, and to the supplements and we will accomplish amazing things.
  • Your heart. Get passionate about it! Get fired up! Plug in and encourage your friends and family. That's what makes us better than the rest!

Our goal is to motivate and change your perception of yourself by convincing the body that it can do things it says it can’t do. We believe that your body will follow where ever the minds lead it. In most cases, it is a mindset that causes us to stay in the same routine and situation. We can help you break that cycle by showing simple things you can repeat on a daily basis, making changes periodically to keep the body guessing to keep the results coming.

The only thing we ask of you is commitment and focus. You have to stay focused and work at it. It will not come to you. But with us, you are never alone. It is our job to help you get there. It's your job to go there.
