Hello Union Fitness Family,
My name is Dave and I’d like to introduce myself as the newest member of the Union Fitness Family! I just finished my first month and will be coaching group and personal training sessions as well as holding down the front desk at times. My first month has been great so far and I look forward to many more. What I love about being at Union Fitness is the people. I personally believe you’re not going to find a more well rounded group of coaches and trainers in the area who truly care about wanting to make other people better. The whole reason I got into strength and conditioning and more specifically coaching is to help others and it is great to be around others who share that same mission.
My strength and conditioning journey started 6 years ago as an assistant high school football and strength coach in Lexington, KY. Since then I primarily spent time in Division I college football, twice at the University of Akron, once as an intern and as an assistant, and at the University of Maryland between being an intern and an assistant. Last year I spent time working with Grossetti Performance out of New Castle, PA assisting with NFL Draft Prep. I also spent time at another sports performance facility here in Pittsburgh before coming to Union Fitness where I worked with not only local athletes, youth and professional, but also coached group and personal training sessions. I am currently finishing my Masters in Strength and Conditioning from LaGrange College and will be finished January of 2021.
I could definitely share more but maybe I will hold off for another post if Hamer let’s me write another one. If you see me at the gym don’t hesitate to come up and say hello and I look forward to doing what I can to help make Union Fitness the best place to train in Pittsburgh.
All the best,
