I had the chance to train with Doug during a spur-of-the-moment session. I mention the timing because it speaks very much to Doug's training style: Creative, enthusiastic, willing and encouraging. He saw a lost soul at the gym staring into a full workout class, and took a free hour of his day to (literally) show me "the ropes" at the gym. I've always been athletic and love working out. I love a good challenge and a good coach. I also love variety, learning new movements, and pushing myself. But sometimes, someone else pushing you is just what you need. After getting my basic info, Doug put me through a series of exercises that I had never tried before. Kettle bells, ropes, new stability-based movements, etc. were the name of the game. He taught them quickly and effectively, then put me to work. It was absolutely awesome and unexpected. And my three-day soreness afterward was entirely welcome. If you need a great trainer who isn't messing around (but is still a warm-hearted human), then you need Doug!

“I have been training with Doug since January 2016. The sessions have been tremendously successful - in that time period I have lost about 20lbs and become much leaner. Doug keeps the sessions interesting and challenging. I have been extremely pleased.

I have been working out with Doug for a year now, I have lost about 3-4 inches in my waist, and lost a lot of weight”. Doug has also helped me with nutrition which has made me feel better and has helped me reach my goals!
