'I have been training with Dave/BHP for several years, and I am very pleased with the training program and overall experience. He does an excellent job of evaluating his clients' current fitness level, and developing a program to help them grow and achieve meaningful results in a safe manner. Dave promotes a fun social environment that still maintains a clear focus on the fitness goals of clients. He is very knowledgeable of body systems and how they work together, and designs programs to enhance the interaction of multiple systems to promote growth. He has demonstrated skill in knowing when to push clients, and when to take a more relaxed approach.' -A.B.
'Dave is fantastic. He is friendly, funny, knowledgeable, supportive, and motivating. His classes give me a much more effective work out than I would get on my own. I am so glad that I found Better Health Pro!' - KG
'I am a 55 year old, six foot male. In August 2013, I was overweight and close to 220 pounds. did not like the way I looked or felt. I was coming off an arm injury and felt it was time to change. I joined Better Health Pro with Dave and started training under his tutelage. We focused on my core and worked on my stamina, initially. Simultaneously, I also focused on nutrition at Dave’s urgeing. With in a matter of weeks I was losing fat, building muscle and feeling stronger.
By the end of november, I was below 200 pounds and looking and feeling better. I have continued with Dave and now I am down to 192 pounds and feeling even stronger and liking the way I look. I have additional goals to achieve and with Dave’s help I am sure I will continue to progress.
Dave has been instrumental, not only in pointing the way but also keeping me focused and on track. His knowledge of the human body, from a strength and conditioning point of view, from a physical therapy point of view and from a nutritional point of view are unmatched. Dave is very easy to work with, very kind, very supportive and very generous with his compliments.
In short, I couldn’t be happier with the progress I have made and I couldn’t be happier with a coach or trainer. Dave has been great for me and I am certain he would be great for anyone, male or female, who is looking to make a change in their life and just needs someone to guide them and help them learn.' - S.T.
