￼I began training with David just 3 months after a hospitalization with Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever. I had tried training on my own, but started going backwards. I realized it was time to get professional help! For me it has been a great journey, where David really took the “personal” in personal training seriously. I have worked with him for several years and he always maintains a supportive and positive atmosphere. He has kept me motivated through some tough times battling with Lyme disease.
￼Initially, I began with David just to improve my squat and get in better shape, it ended with so much more.
I thought holding a single 75 pound dumbbell and a 185 pound deadlift were awesome. But since he inspired me the dream of competing in Strongman meets, I have held 190-pound farmers’ handles in each hand for over 1 minute. Also, I broke all the IBP powerlifting records for my age and weight class in the bench press, squat and deadlifted 315!
I was a typical busy pharmacist living on fast food and junk foods for convenience. For the first time in m life, I had to learn to eat a healthy diet and cut weight to be a competitive lightweight at Strongman Nationals. Now, I have the health, strength, and self-confidence to be competitive against world-class strongman competitors with the intention of going after the heavy weights! I have definitely come a long way, Baby!
