At the age of 18, weighing over 250-pounds with a 40-inch waist, David Berger struggled to climb a single flight of stairs. Being a high-school drop out, smoking a pack of cigarettes a day, he was not the example of healthy living that he is today. At a pivotal moment, David considered ending his life or changing it. Thankfully, he chose to live his life to the fullest!
Having always wanted to see the world from the other side of the glass, David’s journey began when he quit smoking. He also decided that he would immediately begin eating healthier and exercising, climbing a single flight of stairs a day and adding another flight each week. He also started performing callisthenic exercises. Through his commitment to his consistent and progressive approach, he lost over 88-pounds and 6-inches from his waist within one year! With his newfound confidence gained from regular exercise and a healthier lifestyle, David went on to earn a degree in Kinesiology from West Chester University. In addition, David became a certified Health & Fitness Specialist with the gold standard American College of Sports Medicine.
David’s passion to help others achieve health, fitness and weight loss goals pulled him away from his early work with a professional basketball team. He desperately wanted to make a difference in people’s lives through exercise which compelled him to start Progressive Fitness Coaching almost a decade ago, and create the NUMBER ONE ME DVD!
The same principles and practices that David uses to improve his fitness and well-being are the same that are practiced with all Progressive Fitness participants in their pursuit to personal best.
David Berger once gasped up a flight of stairs. Since then David has completed several trail marathons, multiple triathlons (Xterra)! He continues to coach individuals in completing their first events, from the 5K to the Ironman. Click here to contact Dave.
