I was always intimidated by male personal trainers until I met Dave. He is challenging, yet patient, and fun, yet stern. Best of all – he is somebody you can relate to! He is a great listener and I’m seeing myself transform because of his workouts. My favorite saying about working out with Dave is “ohhh it hurts so good!



  • Lost 50 lbs
  • Has more energy and strength
  • Has kept the weight off

I have been very fortunate to have had Eric-Todd as a personal trainer.  I worked with Eric-Todd for well over a year, and I can truly say that without him I never would have achieved my weight loss goals, and have kept the weight off.  Eric-Todd is so inspiring, and he truly cares about your goals, and doing everything he can to help you achieve them!   I have become a stronger person, physically and mentally, all because I was pushed to places I never knew I could go.  Eric-Todd comes up with the craziest, toughest, but fun workouts I have ever done!  In addition to the workouts he gives a lot of nutrition advice, and ways to change your mind when it comes to food.  He has become my mentor, and my friend, and I am so thankful I had the opportunity to change my life with him!



My husband and I hired Dave as our personal trainer to get in shape before our wedding. He always knew how to push us without being “pushy” and how to challenge us physically while still making it fun. I’m not a huge fan of exercise so to say that I looked forward to working out with Dave really means something. In the end, Dave really got me interested in working out again. He is a very knowledgeable personal trainer with a fun personality and a hard-working spirit. It’s not easy to make exercise seem like “fun” but he definitely does it. Oh, and also I lost 20 lbs before my wedding, which I KNOW I couldn’t have done without him.

  • Dropped 50 lbs
  • Lost 4 pants sizes in 5 months
  • Learned to enjoy exercises and no longer lose motivation

The day I made a conscious decision to join the gym in April 2010, I told myself that this was it, “I’m sick and tired of being overweight!” My clothes were tight, my eating habits were undesirable, and I didn’t like who I was when I looked in the mirror. I had tried many different diets, all of which eventually failed, and didn’t include exercise. After working out on my own for a week or two, I felt I needed to take it to the next level, and get a personal trainer. That’s when I met Dave.

In the past I’ve always given up the gym after a few weeks in, and working out alone was boring and mundane. Training with Dave helped me address all the reasons for those previous failures-I started to see quick results because he knew how to push me. I learned new ways to train which kept it interesting, and I was always confident I was doing the exercises in the right way. Working out for me had never been a joyful experience. With repetitive and boring workouts of my own, it has always been hard for me to stay focused. Dave keeps it fun and interesting, and knows exactly how to keep me motivated every step of the way. Not only was I pushing myself while training, but I saw a huge change in keeping up with exercises outside of training. With his help I started to look forward to working out, enjoyed the exciting and new exercises, and was now able to make healthy food choices naturally. With all of this positive reinforcement I no longer had any reason to lose motivation. Most importantly, Dave’s easy going personality made each session unique and fun; and his complete dedication to each individual client and their goals makes him a reliable trainer. With Dave’s encouragement boosting my own ambition, I was able to drop 30 lbs. and 4 pants sizes in just five months!



  • Lost 12 lbs
  • Has more energy and strength
  • Enjoys working out now

I definitely recommend Dave!  He has the ability to cater training to your strength and endurance level.  When I first started working with him I was out of shape.  He knew when to push me and when I needed a break.  Soon enough, I stopped needing breaks!  He increases the level of difficulty as you get stronger and each work out is completely different than the last.  After almost 2 years of working with him, I am still surprised by some of the new techniques he brings to the table!  He has an innate ability to call me out when I am faking exhaustion and knows when it literally is time to quit.  Which, at the end of the day, makes me love to hate him!

Dave has a confident and seasoned grasp of all of the technical aspects of high-level training. But, in addition and, perhaps more important for his clients, he possesses that critical instinct for those moments in a workout where effort meets resistance in the most productive way possible. Dave is keenly attuned to the “Zen” of the training session. To work with him is to experience intense focus –one’s own and also his. Plus, I grew some better-than-average guns.
