Fitness Coach, Nutrition Coach, MAT Practitioner
Darren has been a certified trainer since 2001. He specializes in working with two main groups of people. The first are men & women from 40 to 70 years old that are at the start of their fitness journey and need help implementing and sticking to a realistic & sustainable fitness or nutrition plan that fits their lifestyle. The second group are the aging athletes that want to continue to optimize their enjoyment and performance in their favorite sports and physical hobbies while trying to minimize or eliminate the constant aches, pains or tightness that often creep up with age.
By utilizing the comprehensive assessment methods from Muscle Activation Techniques (MAT) and the precise metabolic testing with the PNOE device, clients can get a very clear and accurate idea what they need to work on with their fitness & nutrition to get the most efficient, safe, and predictable results.
Whether working 1 on 1 with Darren or in a small group, each client gets a completely customized experience based on their goals, needs, abilities, and limitations. One of Darren's main guiding principles to health & fitness, is that your exercise and nutrition habits should be enjoyable, flexible, sustainable, and increase your happiness not your stress levels.
