About D'Artagnan Danny
Hi there! When you train with me I will educate and teach you how to properly lose weight the fastest and safest way. You will be given resistance bands for free and I'll teach you how to use them in a work out program that will help you reach your goals. If you have equipment that's great! If you don't that's o. k. because the resistance bands will help you. I will go over your eating habits and give you options to help fix and correct your bad eating patterns. I'm going to weigh you in on a scale and take body measurements to see your progression. I'm going to work with you to give you the best quality training in you've ever seen. If you don't feel like were a great fit then I'll give you back your money. This is 100% money back guarantee. If you follow my program and don't see any weight loss results I'll give you back your money. Continue to challenge yourself, push yourself, be different to change yourself, work harder than ever and you can and will be the best!
My favorite client story
One of my clients started around 225 lbs. and she was on her way to take blood pressure and cholesterol medication. We started off slow and worked our way up. We reviewed what she ate throughout the week and adjusted some patterns as well as her water intake. We worked out twice a week and she came into the gym on her own to continue her momentum. Year one she lost about 50 lbs. She was around 165 lbs. and her goal was to reach 145 lbs. We continued to train during her second year and that year we focused on picking up our level to the next level. We were training 3 times a week and at times we struggled. She hit some plateaus and at times it was hard for the both of us. I had to really dig deep and find out how to get her to hit her goal. I eventually found out what we needed to do and it worked. That second year she lost 25 lbs. which totaled out around 75 lbs. she lost all together. We were so excited and she was overwhelm with joy. She was happy she lost all that weight but she was happier because she didn't have to take any medication for her health. She reached her goal 145 lbs. and she felt better than ever. She walked around very confident not because she lost all of the weight and she was looking good but because she knew she could do anything she put her mind to. She was very thankful and appreciative towards me because I helped motivate and inspire her. A lot of the time she felt like she couldn't do it or couldn't finish but I knew deep inside her limitations and I wasn't going to let her cheat herself. At the end of her journey she was satisfied she reached her goal and I was pleased in being her personal trainer.
My favorite exercise
Split squat with a neutral grip overhead press using tube resistance bands. I chose this exercise because it targets your shoulders, triceps, quads, hamstrings, glutes and core. So this move hits up your upper body, lower body and midsection helping burn more calories toning your muscles. One of the best combination exercises that melts fat right off giving your muscles definition and increasing your strength.

Who I Especially Like Working With
D'Artagnan "Danny" Cortes is amazing at what he does. He is very professional and provides me with proper instructions and direction with my program design. I continue to get results with increased strength, flexibility and cardio endurance. I have so much energy then before, it's made it a little easier for me to play with my kids now. Thank you DANNY!!
D'Artagnan "Danny" Cortes is the best at what he does --everything to bring you to your personal highest level of health and fitness. I have hypothyroidism and was completely frustrated with trying to lose weight, and resigned to the fact that it was impossible because of my thyroid disease. I had worked out on my own and with other trainers, but I just didn't get results to be excited about. As soon as I met with Danny, he made me try things that I would never consider doing -- like jumping over a bench! He knows what is possible for you as his trainee soon after meeting with you and asking a few questions about goals and lifestyle. He then gets to work finding out the exact types of exercises to incorporate into his training that will work for you. His goal is to make you fulfill your greatest physical condition potential, and he does! Whether he is leading a group class or guiding a personal training session, Danny gives it his all in maximizing return on your investment of time and money. Even my doctor had said that while I might lose a few pounds now that my medication was regulated for my thyroid, I would have a difficult time taking it off and keeping it off. That has not been true since I started training with Danny and even my doctor is amazed by the results he has brought for me. My goals became his goals and he was determined to make sure I overcame my challenge. He incorporated metabolic conditioning into my workouts, which was exactly what my sluggish thyroid needed to kick it into gear! Any weight that I still need to take off now is simply because I slack off on my end of the deal with watching my food and wine intake! I am 57 years old and I am incredibly strong from head to toe. That is the key with Danny -- every workout is a full body workout. We maximize our time together (one-hour session twice per week) because he guides me through a workout that hits every muscle in my body. There's no waiting for leg day or upper body day, we challenge it all at once! There is nothing repetitive about Danny's workouts, they are always fresh and TOUGH! He is always researching new exercises and mixes it up so I am never bored. Training with Danny will be the greatest investment you will ever make in improving your health and overall conditioning. He trains young and old alike, so don't hesitate to reach out to him no matter your age or fitness level. He is the best kept secret in fitness in Orange County, New York! Check him out on YouTube and exercise along with him to see for yourself!
Hey thanks for helping me with those back stretches. It really helped my mobility and I was able to function smoothly through out my daily activities. I'm very satisfied with my training with Danny and your resistance band knowledge is a real specialty. I was very happy to learn how to perform safe and easy to do back exercises . Who would've thought something as light as a band can functionally improve your body. I'm going to continue to train with you! You're amazing
