About Me

My name is Don and I specialize in life changing transformations. I have helped hundreds of people around the globe gain muscle, lose body fat, become stronger, and more toned with my personal training programs.

Your customized training program is based on the information you provide on your daily activity levels, food preferences, and personal goals, and will be updated weekly for you. Like other professionals in my field, I believe that exercise is essential to a healthy life. Many people want to change, but they don't have the accurate, practical information they need to get started. Filling this gap has become my personal mission. The greatest joy of my professional life is seeing people lives change for the better as they become healthier. My programs are scientifically tested, which develops the entire spectrum of physical skills: muscular strength, muscular endurance, cardiovascular endurance, power, speed, coordination, balance, and flexibility. It is by focusing on the the development of these skills, rather than appearance, that you will make your best gains, both in ability and in appearance.

What to Expect

Expect to be challenged and learn something new each workout. The first session is a basic assessment of the clients abilities to perform certain exercises to their best of their ability. After the first session is complete, the client and I sit together to discuss fitness goals and nutrition to create a plan for success.

Client Success Story

One of my favorite successes was from a young female client who went from only doing a few knee push-ups to sets of 10 full push-ups in only a couple of months. Many take the humble push-up for granted, but relative to her starting point, she had made great strides in upper body strength and more importantly, confidence in the gym.

I started with Don at a mid point of significant weight loss. He was patient with me but also pushed me to do the best that I could. He constantly keeps me laughing and has the best personality.

Don is wonderful. He's always professional and makes you want to work hard. He keeps you focused so you get the best out of his work out.
Thanks Don. Keep up the excellent work.

Georgette R. - January 5, 2019

I have been training with Donald for over a year. He is passionate and dedicated to his clients. Each session starts with a warm up, and ends with stretching. I would let him know what I wanted to work on, and he would always have a plan, oftentimes preparing workouts in advance. Donald helped me lose weight and get back in shape by focusing on functionality vs just strictly lifting. His regimen helped me break through plateaus that I couldn’t just lifting on my own, as we did exercises I never thought of, often exposing weaknesses and imbalances that I wasn’t aware that I had. Donald is approachable, friendly, and committed. I would definitely recommend him to anyone!

Ryon P. - January 5, 2019

Don was fantastic. Punctual and Professional but also very friendly. Looking forward to working with him to help me reach my goals.

Jason M. - January 5, 2019

Great trainer. Don is a wonderful personal trainer! I've been working with him for a few weeks and already notice a difference in my body. He takes the time to understand your fitness and lifestyle goals. He will motivate you during every session and always corrects your form. Don also has a fun personality- the hour goes by fast. He works out with you and makes you laugh in every session. By far the best personal trainer I've ever had.

Deandre F. - January 5, 2019

Don is a natural athlete! He is motivating and positive, I had the opportunity to workout with Don a couple of times. I have been working out for many years and felt like my body/ workouts were hitting a plateau. I decided to try a different approach towards nutrition and exercises. Don showed me each exercise and explained how to correctly avoid injuries while doing them

Sarah - October 10, 2018

I had the pleasure of working with Don for the past 6 weeks. So far, my experience has been absolutely fantastic! The value you get is incomparable to my previous trainer experiences for a couple of reasons:

- Your trainer comes to you. You do not have to waste any time to go to a gym, but instead use the gym that your apartment complex (or similar) has. This is extremely a good value for busy professionals like me. Additionally you do not sign up to a gym and pay for it. Instead, you get focused attention from your personal trainer in a comfortable environment.

-You learn to appreciate what your body can do for you and how a solid trainer can help in the process. Before starting this program with Don, I tried a different personal trainer who was working at a gym. My prior experience was not a good one as I did not feel like my personal trainer cared about my progress. Luckily, I have a good trainer now who cares about my physical as well as mental health (e.g. stress). He takes his time to listen patiently and provide good advice on what I should focus on when I exercise on my own and of course how I should stick to smart/healthy eating without starving myself.

Caitlin - February 13, 2017

Don is amazing - He's the perfect mix of tough and encouraging, and can help anyone of all fitness levels. Not only does he come up with amazing circuits that leave me sore for a week - he also knows how to deal with different injuries and sensitivities. I have horrible feet, and he's given me low-impact but strenuous workouts every time I've seen him. That being said, he knows when something painful can be rolled/stretched out rather than just worked around. A couple times when I complained of pain, he had my roll out tight spots and to my amazement, I instantaneously had a better range of motion.

Go see Don!

Joy - February 12, 2017

Don is not only professional, incredibly knowledgeable (about exercises, movement, anatomy, fitness, etc) but he also has an incredible energy and spirit that could motivating. His workouts are intense and hardcore, yet he recognizes his client's limits and tailors the workout to their needs and capabilities. In addition, his workouts are filled with a variety of exercises to keep you engaged- the session never feels repetitive
