I have been training with Dustin for over 2 years, and the experience has been excellent. In the first year, I lost 45 pounds, which I have kept off the 1.5 years since. I worked through a shoulder injury that I sustained; a years old hip issue has been resolved; and my overall strength and energy are markedly better. Dustin has always been positive, flexible, responsive and professional. He is sensitive, listens, and focuses on what I need. I would recommend him for any fitness or life goal that you have ahead of you.

I have worked out at DIAKADI since the gym opened, but started training with Dustin three years ago. He’s a great motivator, and a tremendous person that I enjoy spending time with. He is knowledgeable and works very hard to tailor our sessions to my goals and my body’s needs. He is always continuing his education and bringing those new skills and techniques to our workouts. I had a couple of surgeries during this period, and he was fantastic at working with my limitations post-op but keeping the rest of me in great shape. I can’t imagine starting my week without a tough Dustin training session to get me kick-started.

After having a 70lbs weight loss, Dustin has been instrumental in helping me not only maintain my weight, but making me stronger and more toned. He develops personalized plans for each client so he is really focusing on what you want and your goals. I have been really impressed by his passion, work ethic, and the results he has been able to achieve with his other clients. He is not intimidating at all and very easy to get along with. I look forward to the time I spend with him every week. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking to lose weight, build muscle, or preparing for an event.
