About Duane

COVID-19 update: Inquire about virtual training (no equipment needed). My gym is always one on one training (never more than you and I in the building) and will remain open during these changing times. I deliver results through safe and consistent training.


My clients range from those who've worked/played hard and lost track of their health, to athletes, to soccer moms. I enjoy working with anyone who has a positive attitude and desire to work hard. Whether you are just starting out or are experienced and stuck in a plateau, I design programs that will progressively construct you towards your goals. My approach is patient and understanding, however always challenging and never boring.


Training takes place one on one in my private gym in West Palm Beach. I do consider traveling to a client's gym on a case by case basis.


I graduated with a degree in Sports and Exercise Science from the University of Central Florida. I also hold the following professional certifications: NASM CPT, NSCA CSCS


My favorite client story

My client Harry came to me with a goal to lose weight and build muscle. He had tried dieting and exercising before but was never on a structured routine. With 3 months of hard work and dedication he lost 30 lbs! However, the weight loss isn't my favorite part of this story. Within the first month and a half of training, his doctor told him he could stop taking his blood pressure and cholesterol medications! These life changing results have been a consistent theme with my clients and drive me to continue being a positive influence.

My favorite exercise

Squat. We build from the ground up. It's important to have a functioning foundation!

My training philosophy

Setting smart goals and achieving them through consistent practice tailored to the client.

My training experience

Diverse client base for 8 years. Lifelong athletic background

As a middle aged man Duane has guided me over a one year period through a life altering experience of weight loss, body reshaping and profound elevation of my self image. His extensive knowledge of weight training combined with his guidance of sensible nutrition and easily attainable fitness goals allowed me to realize an exceptional level of physical presence I thought would never be possible. Duane'a mild mannered approach in goal setting with persistent encouragement was the perfect road map for me. The ultimate reward is the reaction of those who say to me "you look great"!! So I say thanks Duane!

I came to Duane at a low point in my journey....I knew that I was about 50 lbs heavier then I needed to be and I knew that I needed someone to push me to get back in the gym. After an initial conversation, Duane started a slow and deliberate program that allowed me to start seeing small results quickly. Duane is very patient and listens to your concerns. I have had trainers in the past that become complacent with the sessions (60 mins in/out same exercises every session) which caused me to loose interest with the whole thing. Duane has a unique approach to helping you reach your goals thru fitness and nutrition but by texting, emailing and communicating. And often times (for me) those communications are 50% of it....I feel like I am not doing it alone. Duane's sessions are tough but never beyond my capabilities and he pushes you to achieve things you did not even know you could do. His private gym is clean, state of the art and best of all, private and personal....you are not competing (or listening to) the 20 year old jock on the equipment next to you. As a 51 yr old male, my goal is to be fit enough to go to the beach, take off my shirt and feel confident and secure with the way I look....I am not there yet but Duane is getting me there. He is constant and if you are looking for a trainer that will work with you to achieve your goals....you will not be disappointed.

I have had only a few training sessions with Duane and I am extremely pleased with his approach! I would highly recommend him to anyone needing or thinking of using a personal trainer. I do look forward to reaching my goals with his guidance.

Duane is an amazing trainer! He approaches each client with a custom approach to meet different needs and goals. Been working with him for almost three years. You couldn’t find a better trainer, fitness expert, health and eating coach!

I’ve been training with Duane for a few years now and it’s obvious how passionate, hard working and motivated this young man really is. Duane is a self driven, talented individual that can really make an impact on people’s lives. As someone who was overweight and always very shy around other people, I’ve really felt comfortable training with Duane at his very own private gym. He’s always pushing me to reach my maximum potential and has helped me gain more confidence in myself that I didn’t know I could have. His vast knowledge on all things fitness, ability to motivate clients and kind character combined with his ability to plan workouts efficiently, always being punctual with timing make him a great well rounded leader. I highly recommend reaching out to Duane to see what he can do for you, because he certainly has helped me progress.

Duane got your back. He’s very supportive and pushes you to your full potential. He recognizes your presence, your improvement and your progression.

Have worked with Duane for two years now. He is instrumental in keeping my 62 yr old body in shape and relatively pain free. He is extremely knowledgeable and sensitive to the client’s condition, age, and abilities. I strongly recommend him.
