Background / Approach

Dan relies on specialized “hormonally responsive” nutrition plans, functional movements, interval training, and a high intensity anaerobic conditioning to transform his clients.

His unique methods stem from his numerous CrossFit Certifications, NSCA CPT, and C.H.E.K. Nutritionist background (and thousands of hours pouring through books, blogs, and research papers!)

Dan also holds a Masters/B.A. from Cornell University in Ithaca, NY

Dan’s immediate goal is to bring fitness and wellness to the City of Los Angeles. Longer term, he vows to be instrumental in reversing the trend of the obesity epidemic in America.
