Bio & Philosophy

Dan Mencer is a Lifestyle Fitness Coach, certified by the National Exercise and Sports Trainers Association and a personal trainer, certified by the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM). He holds additional certifications from NASM in Muscle Force and Activation Under Stable and Unstable Conditions; An Integrated Approach to Human Movement Science; Integrated Program Design, Optimum Performance Training for Weight Management, Integrated Strength Training, and Corrective Exercise for Knee Impairments. Additionally, Dan is certified in Fitness and Nutrition from Thompson Education. Passionate about fitness, Dan believes that everyone can realize the benefits of a coaching and training program. It’s a fact - the majority of people working with a personal trainer are not looking to become professional body builders. Rather, they are looking to become confident in their body image and enhance their overall health. As a personal trainer, Dan strives to be the cornerstone in one’s path toward physical, nutritional, emotional and even spiritual growth.
