A high school football player and weight lifter, David began studying exercise during his time serving in the U.S. Army.  While training his soldiers to pass their fitness tests, he came to realize that conventional, repetitive exercises could be boring, and oftentimes ineffective.  He began to research different fitness programs, incorporating movements from CrossFit, Pilates, boxing and olympic weightlifting into his soldiers’ programming.  Test results improved and word spread across the base, prompting soldiers from other platoons to join his fun and engaging workouts.

After leaving the Army, David became a full time personal trainer.  He has experience working with a variety of clients, including accomplished athletes, individuals struggling with injury rehabilitation, amputees, and those looking to achieve weight loss.  Whether your goals include increased performance in your sport, improved strength and conditioning, or better balance and flexibility, David will work to create a program tailored specifically for you.
