On March 18, 2003 David weighed in at a whopping 346 pounds and decided once and for all it was time to take control of his life. He made the first step by joining a local gym. After wandering around the gym aimlessly, unsure of what to do for the first three months, he hired a personal trainer. Two years later, he had lost 150 pounds but he had regained his confidence and self-esteem. David didn’t set out to TRANSFORM his life, but that’s what happened.

The knowledge and experience he has acquired through his personal training experience led him to a career in fitness and the opening of his personal training studio in Lincoln Park, Chicago.

The atmosphere of the gym is great–it’s very private and comfortable. The location is also very convenient and Dave always works with my changing schedule.
