Working with Derrick has been a great experience for me. Before, I had no idea how to work out or what I was supposed to be doing at the gym, instead, just doing the same exercises over and over. Additionally, working with Derrick has allowed me to pay more attention to what I should be eating, and more importantly, how much I should be eating. It helped that he was readily available to me and we communicated over text message just about every single day - a great program that I truly recommend.Jul 14, 2015
I had the privilege to have Derrick White as my personal trainer and nutritionist. Derrick took my fitness journey to a whole new level. I was in decent shape prior to working with Derrick but I am now in the best shape of my life thanks to the leadership and guidance of Derrick. He taught me so much about nutrition and fitness that I will be able to use for the rest of my life. Derrick is passionate about fitness and was dedicated to ensuring my success in my fitness journey which has now become a way of life for me. I highly recommend Derrick and Total Health Evolution for anybody's fitness and nutrition training.Jul 13, 2015
I have known Derrick since his career in the Marine corps. As a Marine he has always been a true professional in everything he did. This professionalism carried into his training of his clients. In my 8 weeks of training with him, he provided me with the motivation and the tools to accomplish my fitness goals. He was there every step of the way, night or day. He wasn't only my training coach, he also became a good friend. Would recommend him to anyone who is looking to better themselves.Jan 14, 2015
Derrick is a pleasure to work with. His knowledge of health and fitness is unparalleled. Derrick displays a level of professionalism that is indicative of someone who takes his craft seriously. His integrity is why I not only consider him a professional connection but a friend as well.Jan 12, 2015
I can only speak highly of Derrick White. I have multiple health issues and have gone through five surgeries which limit what i can lift to ten pounds for the rest of my life. I kept gaining weight because I could not exercise due to my injuries and Derrick fixed that. He provided a nutrition plan for me and exercises that I could actually do without hurting myself any further. I have lost over 20 lbs due to his assistance and I feel a lot better, not only physically, but emotionally as well. Thank you Derrick and continue providing the services you do to help others like me!Jan 11, 2015

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My pricing structure is simple and pretty standard. My potential clients and I discuss the goal; then we look at the pricing chart for budgeting and scheduling. I offer trial periods to make sure there is a solid trainer/client connection, and we meet to discuss other options following that trial period.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?For one on one clients, we meet for a free consultation. From there, we identify goals and a plan is designed to help the client work towards those goals. It is really important for the potential client to feel comfortable with me, and vice versa. The better the connection - the better the results. For group training clients, we meet to get an understanding of what environment keeps all parties motivated. Individual counseling is offered to each participant to ensure there is a firm understanding of the sought after goals. With both services, scheduling is of the utmost importance. I travel from one client to the other, and being late is something I try to avoid at all costs.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Yes. I frequently enroll and complete courses to stay fresh on industry changes and recent developments.
