Growing up David was involved with an assortment of activities and sports. In high school David learned about exercise and nutrition through his own research and experimentation which led to him majoring in Exercise Science in college. He was a multi-sport letterman in HS.
In college David picked up Cycling, learned Ballroom Dancing—which became a life-long passion. He was also active in several clubs and played intramural sports: Chi Alpha, Hope Harbor Church, Philosophy Club, Murray Environmental Student Society, Volleyball, Basketball.
After college at MSU, David moved back to Illinois where he found part-time work at the KCC Fitness Center and also full-time work at the Provena St. Mary’s Total Wellness Center. He did personal training, taught classes, and gave both in house lectures and lectures at local area businesses about both exercise and nutrition.
