Hello! I'm Dan, I am a professional musician and an indepedent fitness consultant.
Here is my story: due to long days of rehearsals and performances, and little time to workout or plan my eating I found myself at a physical fitness road block 3 years ago. I had run X-Country back in High School, but really saw a slow decline in my health patterns throughout college and in the few years after. It was at that point that one of my co-workers turned me on to an at-home workout DVD program, p90x and I haven't looked back since!
20 lbs, 5 inches of my waist later, I am here to tell you that Beachbody has helped re-focus my life. I now workout 5 to 7 days a week and am very concious about what I eat every day. And what I found is it's contagious! So much so, that I have decided to take my fitness to the next level and become a Beachbody Coach.
I am a p90x and Insanity user and I like to create hybrids that include both of these workouts, some p90x 1-on-1 workouts, and custom weight training, and running. I have also used ChaLEAN Extreme and TurboFire which are great for many different reasons. Asylum, the sequel to Insanity, is my new favorite. I'd be happy to share with you! I am a runner at heart, but have grown to love X-style circuit training and Shaun T's max interval workouts.
Most important, I believe that being conscious of your personal fitness and diet leads to larger life changes and productivity.
I am always looking for ways to better myself. I am a certified STRIDE Instructor and a certified Sports Nutrition Consultant. I base almost all of my diet and fitness advice on empirical data - I try not to get too caught up in the latest trends, and also recommend a balanced approach that will lead to sustainable and healthy weight loss. My approach to health and fitness is based on basic anatomy, how the body utilizes energy, and setting yourself up to perform the best in your workouts to get the maximum results. Diet and exercise are clearly both necessary in today's world, and I am here to give you the best advice I can based on what I know!
