Without knowing David, you might not guess that he has a huge love for weight training and fitness. Out of the gym, he’s a comic book and movie fanatic. He is from southern California but grew up in Phoenix, Arizona and he loves the outdoors. He’s been in the fitness community for about 9 years and participated in multiple sports throughout his life. After high school he was searching for something to keep him motivated and that’s where lifting weights came in. After a few years of training and building a base, he was approached by a local coach who said he should compete in bodybuilding. In 2009, David stepped on the stage as a bodybuilder for the first time.
During his first contest prep, David experienced the “bro method” of bodybuilding. He had a restrictive diet and cut water and sodium going into the show. He followed a strict meal plan throughout the prep and post show gained nearly 40 lbs in his off season. He prepped using this method one more time before these experiences led him to believe there must be a better way to reach the stage without the monotonous, and potentially dangerous methods he had been exposed to. He felt there had to be a better way to compete in this sport than just following the crowd.
Going into his next off season, he started to question the bodybuilding and dieting methods he had used. He started digging into the science behind nutrition and the body’s physiological response to food and that’s when he found flexible dieting. During his next competitive season, David started implementing the Flexible Dieting lifestyle and made huge changes to his physique! He saw that he could get leaner, and gain more muscle than those around him by using a strategic approach based that was based in science. He has seen success on multiple stages and has been passionate about sharing his love for Flexible Dieting ever since!
In 2012, an unexpected twist in David’s story occurred. His progress was temporarily put to a halt when he was involved in a serious motorcycle accident where he fractured numerous bones including his neck, back, skull and ribs. As a result, David had T1 through T5 vertebrae in his back fused. It took 3 months for him to walk unassisted. David is no stranger to adversity and knows what it takes to overcome an injury. Against all odds, he has returned to the Powerlifting platform several times after his injury and broken multiple state records in Arizona. It is also no surprise that he will return to the Bodybuilding stage in the Fall of 2016. David is the perfect example of the saying, “what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger” . He lifts up everyone around him and leads by example.
David has successfully coached many Powerlifting and Bodybuilding athletes in Arizona, some of whom hold State and National level records. He pushes everyone he coaches to new levels with his mastery of and passion for workout programming. Those who have had the pleasure of being coached by him can easily see that he is a gifted technician in his field and his ability to implement the most optimal strategy in training is what sets him apart from the rest!
