My Journey

Getting in shape shouldn’t be a punishment. It’s an amazing and empowering lifestyle decision that anyone can make. I believe in finding the pleasurable side of fitness; and while there may be a sore muscle or two along the way, the benefits of fitness are worth the challenge. I have my Master's Degree in Clinical Nutrition and Bachelor's Degree in Exercise Science. I am also a Certified Personal Trainer through ISSA and a Certified Nutrition Coach through Precision Nutrition.

Serving the Waxhaw, Weddington, Marvin and Wesley Chapel areas in North Carolina and Indian Land South Carolina.

Dumbbells - Resistance Training


This is a popular trend in the fitness world today and there is various methods of building muscle through strength endurance, hypertrophy, or through power training. Based on your goals, I create a custom program and training sessions.  You’ll see an improvement in your performance in no time.

The unique program I’ve developed will help burn calories, boost metabolism and improve your overall health. A combination of strategic exercises and a healthy diet will have you in tip-top shape.

"When I started to look at nutrition, things really got different. I am down 13 pounds and 4 sizes and I really feel a lot better and look better. Doug as I said before is consistent and really knows what he is talking about. It may not feel good when your doing it or the day after, but progress is easily seen."

"Ever since I started Working with Doug, I have lost fat and gained muscle. I am down from a 34 to 32 jean size. Fitting medium/large shirt when I was an extra large. I just feel overall healthier. He has helped me with my nutrition, all my core lifts have gone up in weight."

 "The way his [Doug's] training style, aligned with the results I was looking for. His training style, I've noticed, cause I also had my wife train with him, that he can take a different approach [with other people,]"
