David’s Success Stories
David is a professional. He knows how much to challenge me, sometimes to accomplish more than I thought possible! I started with David 30 pounds heavier and unable to do two push-ups. I was growing heavier, weaker, and older. David helped me reverse two of those trends, and I feel like the aging has slowed. My doctor is impressed. My progress shows in lab results. My A1c level is normal. My body has gotten lean. Hopefully, diabetes is not something I need to treat anytime soon. David got me into Aquakinetics, which has been a real thrill. Everyone should try that. Training with David has been a good experience over the last 18 months. I plan to keep it up.
Working with Dave was a great experience. He was receptive to my long-term fitness goals and gave me the tools to reach them. Whether you want to learn new workout skills or improve your form, he is the best person to help you. Dave is also personable. I recommend him to anyone.
I started working with Dave after an assessment and discussion of my fitness goals. He listened and offered professional advice. Since he had his own physical challenges, including weight loss, he understood where I have been and where I want to be. I found Dave friendly, warm, compassionate, and easy to talk to, which made a real difference in my motivation. Dave introduced me to kettlebells. Our sessions together were rigorous, challenging, and inspiring. I started with eight sessions and signed up for another eight-session package to continue our work. Seven months ago, during my initial assessment, I wasn’t able to complete a single push-up. Recently, I did a set of 40 push-ups. Dave helped me accomplish what I never thought possible when we began. I know my strength and stamina have increased, my heart-rate recovery time has decreased, and my attitude about exercise has improved.
Dave has helped me reach my fitness goals, which focus on weight and medical issues. He used his insight and past experience to shape my workouts. He helped me start on a healthy path for my future. I appreciate all Dave’s guidance on this journey.
