David is the Founder and Head Coach of Elevate and has dedicated his life to fitness. A former collegiate runner, David shifted his training focus to the Elevate Method and immediately moved up the world rankings in the sport of competitive Obstacle Racing. Through HIIT David got stronger, leaner, faster and more explosive. He is a founding member of the Reebok Spartan Race Pro Team, the author of “The Essentials of Obstacle Race Training” and the host of NBC Sports “Spartan Race.”

David understands the Washington, DC community. A former management consultant, David shifted his focus back to fitness. He has certifications from the American Council on Exercise and Spartan Group Exercise. When he isn’t working, you can find David standing on the podium of obstacle races throughout North America.

I’ve spent a lifetime training myself, improving my fitness and learning the most efficient and effective ways to mold the human body into a healthy, balanced, and effective machine. I could not be more excited to bring my training style and passion for fitness to the DC community! Together we can achieve great things!
