I'm based out of West Palm Beach and have been training here for 3 years. Before that, I trained in Orlando while attending the University of Central Florida, where I received my degree in Sports and Exercise Science. My certifications include the NASM CPT and NSCA CSCS. I stay up to date in the industry and strongly believe in conitinuing education. My clients have come from all walks of life and each come to me facing their own unique set of challenges. Together, I believe we can put in the work to overcome anything that stands in the way of a healthier you!
The passion for wellness stems from my background playing sports growing up and seeing both positive and negative examples. Obstacles aside, taking care of ourselves and doing our best to be better each day is a choice we can make. The fact that you're on this page is a great first step towards making a change and enlisting someone to help you make a positive change in your life!
My guidance and support is not limited to the time we spend training together. I will be a call/text/email away whenever you may need along your journey. If requested, I can offer nutritional advice and have experience writing customized meal plans. An initial consultation will give us the opportunity to get to know each other and go over any questions we may have. The sessions take place in my own gym which is located in a separate building of my home in West Palm Beach. It is equipped with professional equipment and best of all, private! I'm also willing to travel to a gym of your choice.

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.
