Education & Certifications:
Bachelor Degree in Physical Education and Health and Physical Therapy from University of Amsterdam in the Netherlands, Medical & Fitness and Junior Specialist – Titleist Performance Institute (T.P.I.), Functional Strength Coach – CFSC, FMS and SFMA certified clinician – Functional Movement Systems
I utilize my Physical Therapy and Sport Performance background to assist my clients in improving movement mechanics, injury recovery and prevention and develop fun and challenging workouts.
I have worked with professional athletes on NFL Europe’s Amsterdam Admirals and have volunteered at several US Olympic Training Centers. I am an avid skier, golfer, and grew up playing competitive rugby in the Netherlands.
Why did you go into Personal Training?
As a medical professional, I saw the necessity to fill the gap between rehab and training and realized CentraState is the ideal setting to combine both disciplines.
Dan’s Success Stories
Dan is the best and most knowledgeable personal trainer. He always motivates me and ensures I do each exercise correctly to help prevent injuries. Dan has helped me more than I can say, since I began working with him two years ago. He has helped me exceed my goals after a total knee replacement. His wonderful attitude and ability have enabled me to pursue activities which I had been unable to enjoy previously. I highly recommend Dan as a personal trainer.
