  • "I have been training with Dave for over 3 years. He helped me build up my endurance so that I could run a marathon. Now I've run 5 of them all with Dave's help. My clothes fit better, my blood pressure and pulse are lower, and I feel healthier now than I did in my 30's."

  • "Prior to working out I was in constant pain in my lower back, slept very little, had a hard time participating in regular activities. I have gotten to the point where I sleep through the night, back is pain-free, and I don't have any physical limitations regarding my back for activities. Now I don't need anti-inflammatories and I sleep through the night pain free."
