Dallas G.

CPT, MES

A Queens native, Dallas graduated from Hunter College with a B.A. in Psychology. For the past 10 years, however, he has devoted much of his time to studying his passion – fitness – as a science, an art form and a way of life. Using himself as a client, he underwent his own personal transformation and went from 135 lbs. to a solid 225 lbs. through the application of sound training and nutrition.

 

Through his studies and his own personal experience, Dallas deducted that intrinsic motivation is key for long-term results. As such, he tries to connect with his clients on a deeper level so that he can tailor their programs to their own unique needs. He excels at combining the right amounts of core and corrective work, resistance training and conditioning for each individual, and has been able to effectively help many clients achieve their health and body recomposition goals with this methodology.

 

Dallas goes above and beyond to give his clients the best possible service in each session, placing an emphasis on executing proper form to ensure safety, efficiency and the establishment of a solid mind-to-muscle connection. Injury prevention and longevity training are at the forefront of his programming, as he greatly desires to help people sustain their fitness long-term.
