Following a torn ACL in 2008, Dan began lifting to continue/supplement rehab and physical therapy. Along the way, he met the current state record holder, Andrew Sweeney, and began training/competing for team Florida Advanced Fitness and Performance in 2010. Joe Seth (former coach for Rich Lansky) developed Dan into a coach in working with nationally ranked senior and youth lifters (one of whom won youth nationals in 2012).
Dan attained his USAW Certification and CSCS while taking exercise science courses at USF (exercise physiology, biomechanics, strength and conditioning) and furthered education by working with Dave Spitz of California Strength, Daniel Camargo, and Nicholas Curry (brother of 1980 Olympian Butch Curry). He is currently training in New Jersey with long time national/international level lifters Danica Rue, Mike Tirrito, David Boffa, and current junior national champion David Jorge.
Dan shows his strong passion for health/wellness every day through his personal training career at 24 hour fitness.
