More About Coach Damien

I've been a personal trainer and athletic performance coach for 12 years now. I am truly passionate and committed to helping athletes improve their strength, speed, power and conditioning to make them excel at their sport.

With every session I include a dynamic warm up, injury prevention and core. We then go into our strength or speed and agility. Sessions are finished with a cool down that includes stretching and foam rolling.

What separates my sessions from others is my program design and attention to detail. I just don't do exercises and drills for the sake of doing them, everything has a purpose. I believe in being efficient and not wasting time or energy.

My certifications include:
ISSA-Certified Personal Trainer, Specialist in Sports Conditioning, Specialist in Performance Nutrition
NASM-Certified Personal Trainer, Performance Enhancement Specialist
NESTA-Certified Personal Trainer, Master Trainer (Biomechanics Specialist, Core Conditioning Specialist, Functional Training Specialist, Speed Agility Quickness Specialist)

Varsity football: 2 year varsity letter winner, Honorable Mention All League, starting WR
Track: 400m, 400m relay
Basketball: Captain Freshman year, 2 year varsity letter winner

Speed session:
Dynamic warm up, core/scapula/thoracic stabilization, neuromuscular stabilization, reactive neuromuscular, gait/movement mechanics, acceleration/speed, agility and quickness, torso rotation/integrated dynamic core training.

Strength session:
Dynamic warm up, core/scapula/thoracic stabilization, explosive power development-knee dominant hip/leg pushing, hip extension (straight leg/bent leg), push (horizontal/vertical), pull (horizontal/vertical), chop/lift, PNF movement pattern, torso rotation/integrated dynamic core training.

Client Reviews

Coach Damien's training sessions are top notch. In two sessions my son has developed a better running form which he lacked previously. Coach Damien's attention to detail and focus on form is exactly what is needed in a one on one coach. He provides the level of detail that a high school coach cannot. I truly believe my son has benefitted from these sessions and I'm sure the results will be seen during track season.

Had a great session with Coach Damien. We worked on starting techniques and I already feel the difference. I look forward to working with him again.

Greatest coach I've ever had for sure!

Coach Damien was very patient and knowledgeable. He listened carefully and then provided expert advise and coaching. Coach Damien demonstrated each skill he was teaching and then worked with me until I had it right. He was also very fun to talk to and for me it was time very well spent!

Damien is an excellent coach and trainer. The Morris County Track Club is seeking to increase its sessions and expand as a club with Damien as a Coach, Trainer and consultant.

Now that we are winding down our indoor training with you. I would like to tell you that the players have really bought into your program. The hard work and connection you have had with boy's has shown in the results of both the Ramapo Rangers and The Franklin Lakes Rangers. The first step quickness and explosive starts have resulted in a real improvement in our defense and base running for both teams. We have had many games where we stole more than 8 bases and they have posted 5 shutouts with some great defense which I attribute to the quickness developed in your program. We look forward to starting up again after the fall season.
For what it's worth Damien, your training meant all the difference. You truly made Anthony a better athlete. Here, he catches the runner by himself eventually, by overtaking him with he 45-degree running angle you instilled upon him. You also took his 60-yard dash speed from 7.8 secs when he first game to you to 6.8 secs. 1-1/2 years later. This year, he was 1st Team All-County, Hudson County, and he led the team in hitting, overall hits, on-base-percentage, runs scored, rbi's and stolen bases. He led the team in virtually every offensive category there is, including doubles and triples, and you should be proud to know that you shared a major and significant role in his athletic development. I can't wait for you to get your hands on his younger brother Frankie, now 14-years old. Thank you for everything.
