New Staff Spotlight, Dylan Heisey
posted on July 20, 2022
I think it’s difficult to give you a real introduction into who I am in a single blog post, but I am going to give it a shot!
My name is Dylan Heisey and I am a new staff member/coach here at Union fitness. I am originally from the Lancaster/Hershey area which is about 3 and half hours east of Pittsburgh. I moved to western Pennsylvania at the end of 2020 to earn my MBA while finishing my last year of track & field eligibility at Seton Hill University. I love all Philadelphia sports (sorry yinzers), I strongly believe that Wawa will always be better than Sheetz, and I absolutely love all things related to electronic music. When I am not in the gym, you can find me at a local flea or vintage market, reading, or finding a new hobby to learn.
So now that you have some basic information about me, let me tell you about what I think you should really know. My love of sport didn’t come naturally as it did to many. I played several different sports in High School and eventually Track and Field was the one that stuck with me. I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to walk on to a college track team in a small school and the rest is history.
Even now as my chapter of a college athlete has ended and my career in Olympic weightlifting is just getting started. I don’t think I am a talented enough writer to fully encapsulate how sports have changed my life. It has given me the confidence and ambition to take on any challenge that comes my way, and I hope it can do the same thing for you. I want to be the person that pushes you to success whether it’s inside the gym or out! So if you see me around the gym please stop and say hi, I want to get to know as many of you as possible! Until we meet, I will leave you with this quote:
