Biography

David is a self-proclaimed nerd that strives every day to look like the superheroes he grew up admiring. His personal fitness journey started when he took to the weight room at 11 years old, partly as a way to cope with the loss of his father and a way to handle the tough journey through puberty. David fondly remembers those who greatly influenced him in his youth and supported him in his interest in exercise physiology as he went on to put himself through college. After the loss of his father at the age of 10, he lost his mother at age 20 and found himself in a position to have to work 4 jobs to get his degree. David was graduated Cum Laude from Kent State University with a B.S. in Exercise Physiology. All of his life experiences inspires him to help people grow and change and discover their real selves. He wakes up every day excited to empower people in and out of the gym.

In David’s words: “When people ask me, upon our first time meeting, what I do for a living, I proudly tell them, “I watch magic happen every day.” I get to witness, first-hand, the transformation one undergoes through our programming. Our members may have come in “out of shape,” unhappy with themselves or their lifestyle, emotionally battered, physically limited, frustrated, nervous, scared, or even confident, athletic, and capable already. I see as they grow and change and the real person that has always been there shows through. They become more courageous and stronger with every success, every rep, every heart-beating, exhausted breath, and they take that out into the “real world” with a renewed sense of self and burning light. I love it with every ounce of myself.”
