We got your back! Just like our happy customers
For years all I was comfortable doing in the gym was cardio, but saw little results when I’d look in the mirror. Once I began training with Dustin I saw progress in the mirror literally within 6 weeks and much more importantly, Dustin helped me find confidence in myself & I am now completely comfortable being at the gym: knowing how to workout properly with good form. If I’ve had an injury or simply don’t like doing something, he helps me adjust my workout routines accordingly. Dustin’s warm, friendly personality and years of experience make him a perfect trainer especially for newbies like I was.
Getting the chance to learn from Dustin's group events, private training sessions and online coaching has taught me how to tackle the gym independently. The diverse and flexible environment he has created has reminded and re-inspired me to always make time for self care. From the moment you begin with Dustin there is automatically a positive and motivating energy to get your fitness started. He encourages and challenges you to be accountable and consistently achieve your goals. It is really reassuring to find a trainer that holds so much passion for his profession
Training with Dustin has made my goals so accessible to me. I feel inspired even when just speaking with him, and he truly brings an empathetic — yet resolute — approach to his training. I’ve been on a body recomposition journey since January 1st. I mostly started with diet, walking, and some body weight exercises, but once I felt that I was no longer making the progress I desired, I reached out to Dustin; we started working together in early May.
Through his precise and streamlined workouts, I managed to topple my gym related anxiety. Dustin uses a holistic approach to his training and genuinely cares for those he works with. Aside from being a wealth of knowledge: Dustin is one of the most genuine and caring people I’ve had the luxury of getting to know. I am thrilled to continue working with him over the coming weeks and months.
