My name is Daniel Lee. I graduated from the University of Maryland in 2011 with a Bachelor's of Science in Kinesiology and have worked as a strength & conditioning coach, and personal trainer ever since. Back in Washington D.C. where I'm from originally, I've worked with the University of Maryland Basketball Performance department, private strength and conditioning facilities, as well as private fitness clubs. Since moving to New York, I've worked at Corporate Health & Wellness companies, private gyms and currently work at a Physical Therapy office in Tribeca.
I've worked with clients all over the spectrum such as division 1 athletes, as well as people with later stages of neurodegenerative disorders. With my 10 years in the sports performance and fitness industry, I've worked on correcting posture, movement mechanics for sports performance or daily living.
I am passionate about facilitating a sustainable exercise program for every client I work with. At the end of the day, we must find a way to enjoy our exercise. Exercise is good for you, it's not supposed to be a stressor, but a stress reliever. When we find a way to make it a sress-reliever rather than stress-or, we will make time for it. I have spend my whole life exploring all the various modalities for staying active and love exploring the various options to create an enjoyalbe experience for everyone I come across.
My current passions include olympic lifts, sports specific agility, plyometrics, single speed cycling, pilates, and most recently salsa dancing! Let's find what works for you best!
