I’m two weeks into training with Dan Chavez and I’m extremely happy with the level of professionalism going into the assessment, training and even focus of general movement. If you’re looking to get a true value for you buck, I highly suggest Dan and his approach to Wellness Training. Excited to see what the future brings.

Ive been with Dan for about 6 weeks now, and can honestly say Ive made the right choice in choosing a well experienced and knowledgable personal trainer. My body has been improving in strength and in aesthetics just in the short amount of time I have been training with him. He has been very professional and is dedicated to helping me reach my goal. The equipment is high grade and Dan has taught me how to lift and weight train properly. I cant wait to see how much Ive improved in the next few months. I 100% recommend, Dan as a personal trainer and as a nutritionist. Both of them combined and I can guarantee you the certainty that your goal will be met!

I came to Dan after a bad car accident, overweight, unmotivated,and low in confidence. Through Dan's training, and nutrition advice I started feeling better within the first week. Dan is continually looking to develop his own knowledge to ultimately grow and share with his clients. This type of service is what sets him apart from a regular commercial gym. Not only is Dan a great trainer,he is a true friend who genuinely cares about the well being of each of his clients.

Training with Dan has been awesome. Before training with him I was pre-diabetic. Happy to say no longer pre-diabetic. With strength training I'm able to stand without back pain. He's very knowledgeable about his work. Body not doing well he knows what to do to get it moving right. Thank you DC training for my weight loss journey dust far.
