Introduction: “A workout should give you more than it takes from you” There is no “one size fits all” approach because everyone has different goals and dreams, baselines and timelines, and various life demands, so I coach and train based on the context of your life. I promise to keep it fun, and always be honest and realistic. I’ll keep you tied to the process, and focused on your goals! I work with individuals looking for real and sustainable ways to look, feel, move and perform better. Over the past 14 years I’ve worked with a wide range of clientele- from athletes, to busy professionals, parents working from home, and everyone in between. My ideal client is someone with a goal, who’s ready for change and is willing to work hard. So, if that’s you, I'd love to help. Every client starts with a free consultation/assessment and workout which I use as their own personal blueprint. It’s time to get RESULTS!

I cannot speak highly enough of Dave and his training. I sought one-on-one, in-person assistance from a trainer after I injured my back, lost my ability to move without pain, and physical therapy was not helping. Dave's knowledge of fitness and building a personalized program is hands down the reason I am able to move pain free today. Moving pain free could have been enough on its own, but Dave also trained me to regain fitness skills I had not performed in years (e.g., pull ups, max squats, pistols, handstand push ups, double under jump rope, and so much more). I was reaching personal bests each week thanks to Dave. In addition to the many fitness achievements I made with Dave, I also thoroughly enjoyed his company. For a long time, working out was painful and, frankly, I hated it. Dave made training something I looked forward to again. He's professional, fun, encouraging, and patient. Dave has given me so much. I simply cannot sing his praises enough. Thank you, Dave!

My experience with Dave has been fantastic! He is an excellent trainer who takes time to tailor workouts to your specific needs and goals. Dave also educated me on the importance of proper nutrition and recommended exercises to do when I’m not training with him. I have already seen amazing results since I started working with him! His guidance is just what I needed. This was my first experience working with a personal trainer and I’m so glad it was with Dave. I highly recommend him.

Dave is an excellent trainer. I’ve been working with him for about a year and a half. He’s patient, well-read, highly intelligent, and understanding. Training with him has made me a more courageous person and provided a great outlet to feel accomplished outside of my career. As an Eating Disorder therapist, I was concerned with finding a trainer who was respectful of my desire to not adopt any dangerous methods in pursuit of health. I am impressed with Dave’s compassionate and respectful approach and none of his suggestions to me have been unhealthy.

I have worked with Dave for the past few months. - I was sceptical about online training at first but now I can’t believe the amazing results I’ve achieved and how much I’ve grown in confidence. Dave makes everything tailored and personalised to your own goals and needs. I’d definitely recommend.
