    In 8 weeks Don changed my life! His coaching changed how I eat, how I move and how I think. I lost 25 pounds and almost 2% body-fat in that short time. I had the best standard blood test results in probably 15 years and my energy is through the roof. I consider Don not only my coach but a friend and recommend him to anyone. He takes the time to understand YOU and applies strategies that best suit your goals and your specific body type/makeup. He also provided an amazing amount of emotional support to keep the momentum going through my journey. I won't even get it into how knowledgable he has but he is a scientist at heart and always backs up his recommendations based on real results that he personally has seen (data to back up) and experienced himself. A true professional and someone who truly cares about his clients!
