About Daniel

Hi all, and thanks for taking the time to read my bio.

 

 

 

Exercise, particularly weightlifting has been a big part of my life since I was a teenager. I still enjoy working out as much as I always have but my motivation for keeping it up has certainly changed over the years. Way back then I was totally focused on the aesthetics. Like most young men getting big was what I was after. The lasting physiological and psychological aspects of exercise did not become a motivating factor until much later.  

 

 

 

Life takes over, we get off track and at my heaviest I was 265 lbs. I smoked too much, I drank too much and my diet was terrible.  I know what it is like to struggle with weight, lack of energy, no motivation and the accompanying mental beat-down that those things bring on and perpetuate. It is a cycle that is extremely difficult to break out of without help. I have been through it, I broke the cycle and I want to help others do it. That was 15 years ago. Now, instead of exercise being a means to an end, exercising itself is the end. I enjoy it, I look forward to it, and I cannot imagine what life would be like without the ability to do it.

 

 

 

The greatest satisfaction I get as a Personal Trainer is to watch a person who never thought they could do it realize that they are doing it! I love seeing the boost in self-confidence that comes when those first changes in weight, size, strength and energy start to show. The cycle that pulls a person down is reversed, it feeds on itself and with coaching and encouragement, there is no stopping you. I love being a part of it, there is nothing like it and that is why I do this.

I have been working with Dan for six months. He is knowledgeable and pays attention to what I want to do unlike some trainers. He makes it fun too. 30 pounds down and I have a shape again! –

I could not ask for a better trainer than Dan. He responded to my emails and texts quickly. We had a free phone interview so he could know my health issues and learn my goals for the personal training sessions. He is a good listener and also an excellent motivator. His personal training sessions gave me just the kind of workout I needed. He will tailor the personal training sessions to meet your goals and needs. He is also a very nice person and enjoys helping people to improve their health.

Dan is a great trainer. He is very focused on technique in order to give the most effective workout. I can already feel a difference after just a few workouts! He really listens to my concerns and designs workouts to help me reach my goals.
