Yoga on the Beach will be from 6:45 – 7:15 led by Kara Burgess
Kara works for Delirium Fitness teaching Yoga and Small Group Women’s Training. Growing up, Kara found her home in competitive sports- excelling in travel soccer and balancing a very active life. Then the working world hit her… After years of dead-end jobs and unfulfilled dreams, she really wanted to make a complete lifestyle change, so she took a leap of faith and pursued her goal to not only better herself, but to help others better theirs. Kara’s received her Personal Training Certification from the National Academy of Sports Medicine; and her 200 hour Registered Yoga Teacher through the Yoga Alliance. An organic and natural living enthusiast, Kara truly believes that a healthy body makes a healthy mind, equaling a healthy soul. Kara loves connecting with the Delirium members and seeing them make changes to better lives each time they show up in the studio.
When Kara isn’t training or teaching yoga, she can be found in the kitchen creating healthy meals for her family, exploring the great outdoors, or cuddled up with her husband watching a good thriller. Kara and Del, co-Owner of Delirium, met in a “past life” and are so happy to work together to provide well-rounded fitness opportunities at Delirium Fitness.

Your Announcer – Justin Shelton
A 22 year veteran of DJaying, Justin Shelton has played events large and small; from concerts, art shows and weddings to races, charity events and runway shows.
Shelton earned bachelor degrees from Arizona State University in communications and from Full Sail University in film. During college, Shelton DJ’ed and did play by play for the student radio stations. Since then, Shelton DJayed in Los Angeles for over 15 years while working in film for studios like Warner Bros. Shelton moved to Michigan recently to raise a family.
Lucky for us, that we discovered Shelton as a DJ and spotted a hidden race announcing talent. We invited him to announce at one of our races and we haven’t looked back!
Your Announcer – Del Baldwin
We are thrilled to have Del Baldwin of Delirium Fitness back as our announcer again this year.
Founder of Delirium Fitness, Del Baldwin, is, first and foremost, a mother of three. Always a lover of movement and fitness, she grew up as a dancer. During her college years at U of M and her young professional life as a video and film producer in Los Angeles and Las Vegas, she only periodically went to the gym to attend classes.
After getting laid off at age 35, however, she realized how out of shape she had become and decided to start running and focus on getting fit. She ran her first mile since high school and began taking boot camp classes. Seven months later, she ran a half-marathon. She loved the way being fit made her feel stronger, and able to do things she never thought she could. Wanting to share the way she felt with others, she decided to pursue training as a career. Del attended National Personal Training Institute and received National Association of Sports Medicine-approved diplomas in Personal Training and Nutrition Counseling in 2009.
She began teaching classes on the beaches and in the parks in Southern California, and purchased a successful business that focused on women. She had a support staff of five other instructors and over 120 members in 3 locations. She ran this business for four years and doubled the sales. During this time, she became more and more passionate about being a trainer.
After moving to Michigan, she started to try things out and get a feel for the new fitness climate. She taught classes at University of Michigan, Liberty Athletic Club, Workout 1, Saline Rec Center and Orange Theory Fitness. She also began to take on some personal clients in her basement. Soon, the business in her basement grew to 20 women taking classes together and supporting one another.
Delirium Fitness took on a life of its own! After eighteen months, the business outgrew the basement and Del sought out a partner and new studio space to better serve the local women.
Del is so thrilled to have the opportunity to be able to serve women and assist them in their journey to be better, stronger, and more confident. She believes women put themselves and their own well-being on the back-burner way too often, as she did for many years. She tries to make it “easy” to commit through emotional support and offering challenging yet do-able classes that also push you to feel great. She also aims to inspire people near and far with her involvement with Brooks Running.
She didn’t grow up a runner, and she didn’t start her professional life as a trainer at age 21, but it is because of this, she is able to relate better to her clientele, she is able to remember what it was like to “start”, and she is ever-so-grateful to have been lead down this new life path.
“I believe the universe has put me here to inspire and ignite others through fitness.”
Del has inspired and trained a group of her athletes to participate in Tri Goddess Tri this year, look for them out on the course and look for Del at the finish line!
