Hi. I'm Dave, and I know what it's like to wish for a different body...
When I was 18 years old, a classmate made a comment about my "skinny arms." This tiny critique, even though it meant no harm, suddenly made me self-conscious about my body. I had never thought about my "skinny arms" before, but in an instant, I hated them.
It was this self-consciousness that prompted me to go to the gym for the first time in my life. I had to "fix" my body so that nobody would be able to make a hurtful observation like that again.
I know what it's like to wish for a different body.
And that's why I've been working in the fitness industry for nearly 20 years. I understand what it's like to become fixated on appearance, feeling like so many things "have to" change in order to be a valuable person.
Now my mission is to help others overcome this unhealthy fixation while still being able to improve their fitness and reach their weight-loss goals.
Since 2001, I've met with thousands of people who want to transform their bodies but haven't been able to successfully lose weight. While I don't claim to know everything, my ongoing work as a certified Personal Trainer and Life Coach has taught me a method that does work, and it's not about eating less and exercising more...
Losing weight (and I mean really losing it, not just temporarily) starts in your head and your heart. Once you understand what you want to accomplish, why you want it, and why you deserve it, anything is possible!
It's my calling to help people not only lose weight, but to help them realize their immense value beyond what the number on the scale shows. That's really why I was chosen as Canada's Top Fitness Professional - You see, fitness is about so much more than exercise and healthy eating. It's about being able to love yourself more, love others better, and love the life you are living.
