The dhFIT Method

The dhFIT Method is a comprehensive approach to fitness; we emphasize working the entire body & mind during each session, aiming to speed metabolism, correct muscle imbalances and properly strengthen the core all while creating a pain-free body and a stronger mindset. Our complete program creates a solid foundation, healthy body & mind transformation, and ultimately develops a balanced physical self — delivering lifetime results.



"After 5 years of dealing with debilitating knee pain; visiting countless doctors, physical therapists, and experts (including two visits to the Mayo Clinic) I was about to give up all hope. I was then referred to David and decided to meet with him. After our initial conversation, I was refilled with hope. In just 10 sessions my pain was decreased more than I had after months of working with others. 20 sessions in and I was able to start playing with my daughters again. I am happy to say that today I am pain-free! Not only did David help relieve my pain, but he also educated me on what I could do to help myself. I am forever grateful."

"David has been my personal trainer since January 2010. I work out with him multiple times per week, and I really look forward to each session. I have had great results and he is always upbeat and in a good mood which helps when we are doing difficult workouts! I would definitely recommend him."
