More About Coach David

I have worked with a wide variety of athletes from youth athletes, to high school, and collegiate athletes. I work with both female and male athletes, sports include volleyball, baseball, football, softball, etc. I have been in the private sector for four years now.

I started my collegiate football career as a walk-on at Coffeyville CC. I ended up earning a scholarship and played in all 11 games. I then transferred to Friends University, where I was a 2x All-KCAC selection at Linebacker. I eventually played two seasons with the Wichita Force Semi-Pro Indoor Football team.

I always focus on building a relationship and trust with my athletes. I want to get to know them on a personal level and find out what their goals are. From there, I always start off with an evaluation/assessment to find out what we need to work on. After that, I create a plan to help eliminate weaknesses and amplify our strengths to ultimately achieve their goals.

David trains our 13 year old daughter. He listens to her goals and helps her get there. It has only been a few months and she has shown huge gains. He motivates her and she enjoys getting up and going to work out with him. Excellent coach, knowledgeable about his field, and a great example for a young person. We love him! He goes above and beyond.
Listen, I could say a lot about how David spends time tracking my progress, has designed a program to meet my needs, is addicted to energy drinks, is hustling and grinding... but my favorite thing about working with him is that he is fun to be around. We talk life, business, movies, dreams, goals, and aspirations.
My son and daughter have been working with David for about a year and we couldn't be more pleased. David is very professional, utilizing some of the lastet technologies to analyze the kids progress. He pushes the kids beyond what they believe they can do in a very structured and positive environment. I would recommend David to anyone that is ready to work hard and have fun!
David is always ready for me physically and spirit-wise. He makes workouts for me that mirror my personal goals. He works with this old man and students and adjusts workout accordingly to what the person wants.

Trainer Dave works with our teenage son and has even welcomed our 10 year old son to join in on some group sessions. He is passionate and supportive of them reaching their goals, pushes them when it gets tough, but also has fun while doing it! The support doesn’t stop when the workout is over either. Trainer Dave is part of their lives and will play a huge role in their success as athletes. As a parent I could not be happier to have found Trainer Dave and watch the relationship he has with them grow!
