Can you really reach your fitness goals at Damian Fisher Fitness? The best way to answer this question is simply to share the success stories of our clients!
I hated to exercise. It was boring, repetitive and never seemed to give me the results that I wanted. I migrated towards loose fitting clothes and oversized t-shirts. I was out of shape and my knees hurt from carrying around the extra pounds. In fact, I would often avoid going up and down stairs. But as much as I hated to exercise, I disliked the direction I was heading even more. This was when I reluctantly started to work with Damian and what a difference. Damian listens to you and takes the time to understand what you like, what you don’t like, what you want to accomplish and what motivates you. He tailors the program to your needs and gets you to where you want to be. I still can’t say that I enjoy exercise, but I can easily endure my 30 minute workouts and I love the results. Damian’s program and expertise has greatly improved my quality of life.
As a physician, I have always know that a balance between healthy eating and exercise yields results. For such a long time I have incorporated either one or the other into my daily routine, but never on a consistent basis. I decided that I needed to practice what I had been preaching all of these years, I took action. With Damian's help and expertise, we were able to completely overhaul the way I eat and incorporate much needed physical activity. In the wake of a knee injury, Damian designed a training program that focuses on strength training, weight loss and healthy lifestyle modifications. The program is individualized and met me at my current fitness level. Having a personal trainer gives me the much needed accountability. Now I hate to miss a session and I don't crave any of the junk foods I had once lived on. Living a healthy lifestyle is the best thing I could have chosen to do.
At 86 years old, I began to have problems with my balance and walking. I fell 4 times within a 2 week period and I was afraid my active lifestyle was coming to an end. Damian scheduled me for an evaluation/consultation and I began my sessions the following week. With his knowledge and instruction, I was quickly back on my feet and have had no more accidents. I am getting stronger with every workout, feel wonderful and am enjoying my independent life again.
I was tired of carrying unnecessary weight and wanted to get back to a more ideal weight. But more than the weight loss, I wanted to maintain a healthier lifestyle. With Damian's help I am doing just that. It's great to have a good trainer on your side.
Physique & Bodybuilding Competition
When I started training with Damian I knew that this was the beginning of something great and would be a life changing experience. Damian set me up a diet plan and workout plan. I would see Damian once a week. During the days that I saw Damian we would workout and talk about any diet changes or any changes that needed to be made to my workout plan. Damian would also keep in contact with me during the week to make sure things were going as planned and if not then he would make changes. During competition prep Damian would help teach me the poses that were required for competing. Once a week I would have posing practice with Damian and he would help me with my posing and also help me on my stage presence. In 2015 I competed and placed second in the novice figure division and the fit body division. I recently competed in the No Gear Classic and placed Second in the Figure Novice division and Fifth in the Open division. Damian has guided me and been there for me through this whole process. I have learned a lot about my physique and also ways to help meet the nutritional needs to keep my body in shape. I am pleased to say that I have a great coach.
I was introduced to Damian as I was preparing to compete in my first figure competition. I am so thankful that I met Damian and took him on as one of my coaches. I competed in the ANBF Natural Mountaineer Championships on June 25, 2016, and placed 1st in figure debut, 1st place in figure novice, 1st place in figure open and won my ANBF Pro Card---all in my 1st time competing on stage. During preparation for the competition, Damian made crucial decisions about my dieting, training, stage t-walk and posing. I followed all of his recommendations to the ‘T’ and am so glad that I did! There is no way that I would have been so successful at my 1st competition if it had not been for Damian’s expertise wisdom and knowledge. I appreciate Damian’s natural and holistic approaches to maintaining a healthy and fit body. Damian has earned my trust. I trust him to continue to make essential decisions about my fitness and health in future shows to come and during off season. To have a coach that you don’t have to question and have full confidence in speaks loudly. And I can say that about Damian. I am honored that he is one my coaches.
When I first started working with Damian I was not happy with how I viewed my body. I have always been very active but struggled with keeping my weight steady which was very discouraging. I thought that if I worked hard enough that I could manage my weight on my own and that could not be further from the truth. I had two goals when I first met Damian. One of my goals was to be able to lower my body fat and build muscle in a way which was sustainable even if I was not competing. The other goal was to keep my strength while losing weight. Being a fire fighter, it was very important for me to keep my strength to be able to perform on a daily basis. Damian not only helped to change how I viewed food, but he helped me regain my confidence and be proud of what I see in the mirror.
During preparation for my Men’s Physique show, Coach Damian laid out everything I needed to do in order to get into peak condition. He gave me specifics; grams of protein, carbohydrates, and fat, as well as how many ounces of water I needed to take in as I got closer to show time. He recommended foods that would allow me to hit the desired macros. On show day he informed me if I needed more ProTan or not, and what to do in order to hold my peak for both show days. Damian gives training specifics that leave no room for uncertainty for his clients, and a delivers a clear pathway towards success.
