Gavin's love of fitness training and soccer coaching came together to form the popular SoccerSculpt work outs at Crissy Fields and Golden Gate Park. Currently he plays in the SFSFL Majors on a semi-pro team, coaches Varsity soccer at Lick- Wilmerding High School, and trains in Muy Thai martial arts. His other interests include snowboarding, tennis, backpacking and mountaineering. Because of Gavin's extensive experience as a coach he considers himself an excellent motivator and knows what it takes to achieve results. One of his main core ideologies that shapes his teachings is that humans are not machines. They are organisms that are affected differently by external stimuli such as emotional issues, work relationships, social life, sleep patterns, nutrition and genetic history. As such, Gavin takes all these factors into consideration when formulating the perfect fitness regimen for his clients. Aside from being professionally attentive, Gavin has an endearing personality and is often described as honest, likable and quiet. He is considered by his clients both as a trusted coach and friend.

I have always been taught never to give in, always strive to win and to always have fun doing it. Champions find a way!


Words cannot describe how awesome Gavin is. You have to experience him for yourself. For over 3 years, he has subjected me to the most grueling workouts and as a result I am in better shape than I have ever been. His workout sessions are never cookie cutter and are tailored to your ever changing needs. The reason I keep coming back has to do with what a great guy Gavin is. His laid back demeanor and always upbeat attitude makes the idea of going to the gym much easier to take, even on days when my motivation is low. If you want someone who will inspire and commit you to reaching your goals, go see Gavin immediately!

Two years ago, as I was staring down my 30th birthday, I decided it was finally time to get into shape. Prior to working out with Gavin, my routine in the gym was limited at best. I would generally stick to the few machines I felt comfortable using, pick a “doable” resistance, perform a few measly reps, only to inevitably end up on some ghastly cardio machine to count down the minutes until I could go get my fruit smoothie I so earnestly “worked-out” for. Understandably, this cyclical pattern was not producing the results I had hoped for. Gavin changed that. Today, I am stronger and healthier than I have ever been in my entire life. What makes working with Gavin so great is his ability to push me to new personal records, while still keeping my health and safety his top priority. As a result, I have never felt more confident working with free weights and performing otherwise complex exercises. While most trainers stick to rather repetitive routines, Gavin keeps things fun (reative for a gym) and incorporates the myriad of equipment that DIAKADI offers. I generally workout with Gavin 2-3 times a week and no two workouts are the same. If you are looking for an encouraging trainer who will help you get strong and healthy, Gavin is your man!!

If you’re a competitive athlete Gavin is the trainer for you. He reminds me of my favorite coach who encourages and pushes me as far as possible. Gavin is a consummate professional who sets a high bar for himself; he is always up to date on the latest techniques and research and I trust him implicitly. He is super dedicated to each of his clients and personally invested in their development- I recommend Gavin highly!
