About David

No two fitness journeys are the same. I take pride in assisting my clients throughout their individual journey. Whether it is to gain strength, lose weight, gain better overall health, train for function, or even train for a triathlon, I love to help using my knowledge and support to get them to that end goal and beyond. I aim to teach my clients tips and tricks as well as structure for the future to keep their journey sustainable and successful long term.

I am a firm believer in the correlation between physical movement and mental health. I strive to always let me clients know that I am in their corner and genuinely care about them as a person over just a client. Personally, I deal with depression and anxiety and physical fitness has helped me so much over the years. I want to bring that experience and relatability to those who are looking for some movement therapy.

My love of movement started at the young age of 3. My dad had created a makeshift basketball court in our backyard and my older brother played every day. So I gravitated towards playing with him. I fell in love with getting better and better in basketball. Fast forward a few years into middle school, I picked up playing baseball as well as basketball in their respective seasons. In high school, I was introduced to weightlifting and that immediately stole my heart. To this day, you can still find me on the basketball court from time to time but really weightlifting has taken over my passion. So much so, I wanted to make it my career so I went to school and obtained my BA in exercise science with honors and shortly after I was able to obtain my certification through NASM for personal training. Over my training career, I have worked in big commercial gyms, studio settings, group sessions, even a traveling trainer going to luxury apartments training clients in the comfort of their homes. With all of these different settings, I have had the privilege to work with all different kinds of clients.

Overall, I enjoy working with people and helping them reach their goals no matter how big or small those goals may be. I typically get just as excited as the client does once they reach their goals. It's so satisfying knowing that I helped that person better their life and make them feel better about themselves.
