“Dave is the coach you recruit when you're ready to transform your mind, body and soul. I had plateaued with my exercise. I went to the gym but I was bored, uninspired. I asked Dave to be my coach, to write me a plan that woke me up, that pushed me. He delivered. I've reached a new milestone in my fitness, wellness and mindset.”

“After following a custom GS Nation training and nutrition plan for a few months now, I’ve seen huge gains in strength and metabolic conditioning. Making the switch to train with GSN to prepare for the upcoming OCR race season was a great opportunity. Working with Dave is fantastic. He is accessible, knowledgeable and willing to work with you to get results.”
“My GSN campaign was to help me gain weight and healthy muscle. I couldn't be happier the way my life is going right now with GS Nation! David does a phenomenal job creating a personal regimen catered to your body type for optimal results. Not only is he a good fitness coach, but also a leader in life lessons.

“I struggled with willpower, commitment, and determination. This program, the program writer, and the surrounding community are changing that day by day. My journey is a long slow climb, but nothing can stop me with the GS Nation crew and family supporting me all the way.”

“At first I was nervous to take on the workouts, thinking they were going to be impossible with a ton of weight lifting, I was so surprised at how much I enjoyed them. My coach pushed me to try new things and I even felt more comfortable in the gym knowing that I had a plan that I liked doing!”
