My favorite client story

My Client Emily ,never liked working out. after having six different personal Trainers who just gave her workout to do without proper instructions even thought she told them she had been having chronic back pain for years ,(which cause her to not like working out) and did not know why. When she came to me and told me about her back ,my curiosity and need to fix a problem was arose. So I asked her question about when she felt much sore ,she said in the morning when she got up. So I suggested getting a memory foam topping for her bed. After a week,I asked how she was feeling,she said er back feels so good and se never thought she would ever felt like this anymore,not having to go through a day without pain. She has been training with me ever since .

My favorite exercise

I like to do functional training for overall health and endurance.

My favorite quote

If you put your mind to it , you can achieve it.

My training philosophy

Try everything until you find what works for you. Some individuals are practical and some are theoretical, which requires understanding each clients ability and approach.

My training experience

As a kid I was overweight and it was very uncomfortable. I eventually started doing weight training and it made me feel better. I eventually started running and added some martial arts to my training and I have incorporate my experience, starting out, into my training, so that I sense what my clients feel in order to get them through doubts and fear about achieving their goals.

David is a fantastic trainer! I began working with him back in 2013 and was drawn to him because he helped me work closely on my goals and needs, provided real-time feedback and helped me work around my schedule. David did not just go through the motions giving me the same workout as everyone else. This was hugely important to me when considering a long time trainer. Additionally, he helped me focus on flexibility and an overall strength. I still work with David to this day and have never looked back. I would recommend David to anyone looking to achieve their goals!

If you are looking for someone to help you stay focused on your goal(s) and hold you accountable, then David is your trainer! He has given me the tools to make fitness a part of my life - for life. I have seen amazing results: weight loss, toning, improved physical strength, improved core strength and balance, more energy and an improved self image!


I worked with David from October of 2015 to July of 2016. I used to be overweight and had back pain which made it hard to exercise. Working with David was easily what helped me the most over my weight loss journey. He watched my form and corrected it when needed, which was fantastic because in exercise correct form makes a difference. Even though he is not my trainer anymore, he still exercises with me and will give me advice. I exercise independently using the exercises and advice he's given me over the year. He's very easy to work with and talk to, and he helped me lose over 40 pounds and 10 inches. I highly recommend using him if you really want great results that last.

Dave has been the perfect personal trainer. He has made sure I continue to schedule appointments, is hyper-flexible to my schedule and if I have to make last second changes, and really cares about your progress and the changes you're making. Dave was able to quickly assess my current state of out-of-shape and has tailored the workouts and sessions to help ease me back into an active lifestyle while helping me hit my goals. He's been patient but strict and continues to push me in ways I just won't by myself at the gym. Highly knowledgeable, very experienced, and great at making sure you're doing the exercises right. Highly recommend David to anyone looking for a trainer.
