“My passion lies in encouraging individuals to be the best version of themselves through the light of performance enhancement training. I enjoy motivating athletes, pushing their bodies to become mechanically and structurally sound through exercise science principles. I’ve had the opportunity to work with athletes of all levels ranging from teens to pros, figure skaters to NFL players. The one thing in common is achieving maximal athletic performance and reducing injury on and off the field.”
Danny’s greatest joys come from spending time with his girlfriend, family, and friends, training, traveling, cooking, and hiking.
I am currently a Sales Representative for a Produce Distribution Company.
