More About Coach Damien

I've been a personal trainer and athletic performance coach for 20 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)
Level 1 USATF Coach

I played three sports in high school; football, basketball and track. In football I played quarterback and wide receiver. Basketball I was a forward/center. In track I ran the 400m.

Each session begins with a dynamic warm up and movement prep. Next is core/scapula-thoracic stabilization, neuromuscular stabilization and reactive neuromuscular.

The second section is where I focus on gait and movement mechanics. There isn't anything more important than form. My attention to detail is second to none. When I coach I pay close attention to my athletes to ensure they have the chance to be successful.

The next section is where we cover the given running for the day. I try to stress getting my athletes to feel there running splits. We finish up with some explosive core exercises, foam rolling or stretching.

Great first session

(no details provided)

Boys had a great 1st session with Damien. The session was organized exactly as he said it would be and the boys had fun.

Coach Damien displays a genuine interest in listening and addressing the problems shared by my son; a student-athlete. I appreciate his sound training techniques, which have been invaluable to my son’s recovery and progress.

My 16 year old daughter trained with Damien for track and field. Scheduling and communicating with Damien was very easy. At the end of each session Damien was able to give me feedback on my daughters progress. He has helped me with ideas for healing her leg pain and provided my daughter with a guide on food to eat while training and in competition. We are very happy with my daughters overall progress. We plan to continue with booking sessions with Damien.

Coach Damien is exactly what my son needed. A coach that will not only challenge my son physically but mentally. He challenges my son to think and to understand the mechanics required to be the best athletic 'you'.
Highly recommended.

Coach Damien is awesome! His knowledge and insight into biomechanics is strong and his ability to use that knowledge and apply it to the needs of the individual is equally as strong. Look forward to continuing to get coaching

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.

My daughter Lizzie was an intermediate hurdler at Mahwah High School. She went to Damien looking to improve her overall form and strength. It didn’t take him long to determine that she needed to speed up her start time. He worked on revamping her running form and building her core. In previous seasons she complained relentlessly about strained calves and knee pain. Damien worked with her on proper stretching and again, running correctly, and her seasoned progressed beautifully, without the usual aches, pains and injuries. What impresses me about Damien, is his attention to detail and his ability to tailor a program to meet the needs of the individual. The end result is a stronger athlete, both physically and mentally. On a happy side note, my daughters overall physique became more sculpted. I was so impressed that I am now a Sweat Performance client as well!
