Dino Nowak may have earned an engineering degree but his true passion has been building the human body. He is a Medical and Older Adult Exercise Specialist, Exercise Physiologist and Functional Aging Specialist to name a few of his credentials. Dino is a 25 year plus veteran and leader in the fitness industry. Always looking to challenge himself, he has held many roles.
From Personal Training Manager and later General Manager of an International luxury fitness company- Equinox Fitness Clubs where he assisted in opening their first facility outside of the New York marketplace in Los Angeles. To securing a publishing deal after being rejected 6 times to then releasing his book “The Final Makeover” which landed him appearances on multiple media outlets such as Fitness Magazine, Cooking Light, Lifetime Television, NBC, ABC, CBS, FOX and in ongoing publications in national magazines as a writer.
Upon moving to Nashville Dino and his company Renu, provided the fitness and post-rehabilitation services at the Vanderbilt Orthopaedic Institute Fitness Center for 8 years gaining valuable clinical experience. There he earned the trust and referrals of the physical therapists and orthopaedic physicians alike after witnessing the results achieved for their patients once discharged while keeping them safe.
Many of Nashville’s most accomplished doctors have entrusted their health, bodies and careers in the hands of Renu to keep them sometimes quite literally operating at their absolute best. Reducing downtime, incidence of back pain during long surgical procedures and giving them the physical and mental endurance to do their challenging professions with focus, reduced stress and greater enjoyment.
In 2018, Dino expanded the vision for Renu by opening their next location in Raleigh, NC. The dream is to have specialized facilities that serve the community and be a center medical professionals can trust to send their patients thus improving outcomes, reducing healthcare use and costs. Most importantly helping people become more resilient physically and cognitively, returning to them a body that operates years if not decades younger than their chronological age.
