Meet Trailblazer Daniela and Bryce Hogle

Today we’d like to introduce you to Daniela and Bryce Hogle.

Daniela and Bryce, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
Both Bryce and I started taekwondo at young ages and continued through for the last 25+ years. When I went to college at Colorado State University, they had a taekwondo club. I joined and learned that they had a sister club in Wheat Ridge. Over breaks from school, I would travel down and train down there which is where Bryce trained. This is where we met.

Also during college, I was a personal trainer at a local gym. I’ve always loved helping others reach their fitness goals as well as learning better ways to reach mine.

After we graduated college, we moved to Denver and the next step was starting our own wellness and taekwondo club. We have run our classes out of the same community center for the last 15 years in Washington Park.

During this entire time, not only did we teach classes but we also were very active in competition. We’ve both meddled locally, nationally, and internationally. Besides just training taekwondo, we also train the martial art Muay Thai where we are also competitive.

Taekwondo has allowed us the opportunity to travel all around the world competing and coaching our students. Getting to share our passion with others is truly the greatest gift.

Our taekwondo program consists of three different classes: 4 to 6-year-old class, 7 to 12-year-old class, and teen and adult classes. We also offer strength and conditioning and personal training as well as nutritional supplements.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc. – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
In a very male-dominated arena of Martial Arts as a female, you feel you need to prove yourself. For the most part, I’ve been fortunate to deal with many supportive coaches and fellow students. However, there have been times where you’re treated less than your male counterpart. I have been asked why would I want to be a fighter as a female. Having to justify my choices has been frustrating. But I’ve learned to just show him by the hard work I put in.

My advice to any woman interested in martial arts or taekwondo specifically is to get out there and do it. It is the most empowering thing I’ve ever done and I would recommend it to anyone young and old.

We’d love to hear more about Holon Wellness.
Our program runs classes for 4 to 6-year-olds, 7 to 12-year-olds, and team to adult. We have been running this program for over 15 years and love what we do. We are able to do it purely for the love of teaching and not just based on an income. The greatest gift is watching your students improve and do something they never thought they could do. Bryce and my Teaching styles complement each other very well. As a child psychology major and personal trainer in college, I love teaching younger children.

I am extremely proud of our students and the team we have helped create. It’s more than a team it’s absolutely a family. Many of our students have also competed locally nationally and internationally and have done exceptionally well. But what’s even better is that they are all great people and are working on building a more peaceful world together!

Which women have inspired you in your life?
As a young child, I started in gymnastics and was always inspired by the other girls in the gym and the women in the Olympics! it always showed me I could do whatever I wanted to do. Furthermore, my parents were the biggest inspirations in my life. Never once did I feel like I couldn’t do something. They set an example of hard work and focus and dedication will take you to the top. Whether it was gymnastics, taekwondo, diving, track, and field or dance they have been to nearly every single competition, tournament, meet that I have ever participated in and that support has been huge and stuck with me.

I am inspired by my students who are always giving their all. I strive to be the best I can be so I can be the best coach for them.

Finally, I am inspired by my husband and my children. They make me want to train harder and be the best I can be!
