About Daren

With 7 years in the health and wellness industry my passion for fitness comes from first hand struggles with weight-loss and learning the fundamentals of fitness, health, and wellness from the ground up. During a training session you get a professional, hands-on, supportive, and motivating environment without the intimidation and old-school gym mentality. I have the experience, knowledge, and background to get you to your goals including a master's degree geared towards training motivation and evidence based weight-loss retention. I look forward to meeting you!
