EXPERIENCE
My journey into the fitness industry began with a desire to heal myself. I worked in an office for years, and accumulated many aches and pains, so I understand what it's like to lose confidence in one's ability to move. I have mentored under several physical therapists and worked with clients of varying ages and movement abilities. Wherever you are on your health and fitness journey, I would love to help you take it to the next level to reach your goals.

TRAINING PHILOSOPHY
I believe that when you move well, you feel well. There is no part of the body that works in isolation, so I train my clients with a holistic approach that involves creating a solid foundation, incorporating movement variability, and cultivating full body awareness. Ultimately, I aim to support my people by creating safe and effective exercise programs that can help them achieve their personal health and fitness goals. Movement is medicine!

CLIENT TESTIMONIAL
"Dave has been the best personal trainer I've ever had! He is clearly passionate about his work, and unquestionably patient and professional. He has extensive knowledge of human anatomy and physiology and uses that understanding to create diverse exercise programs that have helped me achieve my fitness goals. In each session, I find Dave to be easy to understand and focused on my progress. He's always teaching me something new! A year ago, I would never have imagined myself to be as strong and in the shape as I am today, and I have Dave to thank for that!" -Shelby N.

I’ve been a personal trainer since 2019. After learning basic resistance training techniques in high school, I was determined to learn everything I could in the next 6 years. I majored in Biology because I was interested in the fitness and biomechanical aspects of the human body.

EXPERIENCE
Fitness came into my life when I needed it the most. As a child I always struggled with self-confidence, anxiety and unhealthy eating habits. It wasn’t until my mid-twenties that I realized I needed to take control of my life and make a lifestyle change. I began spending time in the gym and was instantly hooked. I eventually decided that I wanted to make it my career and help others who were struggling with the similar issues. During my time as a trainer, I’ve worked with an array of clients, focusing on weight loss, strength gains, and wedding prep. My training style includes, strength training with a mix of interval training, for fun and effective workouts.

I find joy in helping clients achieve a balanced lifestyle by embracing all aspects of health and wellness. I aim to create a training environment that motivates and empowers individuals to improve their quality of life in a fun and rewarding way.

It’s always the right time to start this journey. The gym might seem like an intimidating place, but I see clients face and conquer those feelings all the time. Getting stronger is a process.
