Derek is a self-proclaimed fitness junkie for whom weight training has been a lifelong affair. On his 13th birthday, when he received a set of Joe Weider weights, it was love at first sight. From the very first time he worked out in his garage he was absolutely hooked. “I felt strong, I felt empowered, and I felt confident.”  While all of those things are certainly true, Derek is now able to look back on that experience and recognize that there was something much greater at work. “Sure, on the surface I may have simply been lifting weights, but in reality what actually happened is that I had tapped into a power with unlimited potential and infinite possibility.”

Since 2006, when Derek became a Certified Personal Trainer, his life’s work has been to inspire others and lead them to find this very power within themselves….the power to Transform, the power to Overcome, the power to Breakthrough. Throughout his career, Derek has had the opportunity to help THOUSANDS of faithful clients lose THOUSANDS of pounds of fat, gain THOUSANDS of pounds of muscle, and dramatically transform their lives forever. It is his sincere desire to share this gift with you.
