    A native of New Bedford Massachusetts, David earned a Bachelor of Science in biology from Bridgewater State College (University) in Bridgewater Massachusetts, and a D.C. (Doctor of Chiropractic) degree from Life University, in Marietta Georgia. He also earned national certification as a personal trainer from the Athletics and Fitness Association of America (AFAA) in Sherman Oaks California in 1996.


    After chiropractic school, David received his licence as a chiropractor in Massachusetts. Early on he chose to establish a Vitalistic-based (wellness) practice and maintained such with his later practices in New Bedford, Plymouth and Peabody Massachusetts. He has also worked as a staff chiropractor in a large practice in Boston.


    David's past professional experience as a personal trainer includes running his own training business as an independent contractor out of fitness centers in Plymouth and Pembroke and managing private clients for in-home personal training on the North Shore and the South Coast, as a contracted trainer for the Massachusetts Criminal Justice Training Council’s police cadet physical training program, as a personal trainer and staff member at athletic clubs in Solana Beach and San Diego, California, as a staff member and personal trainer at the Newport County YMCA Wellness Center.

    Currently, David is a staff member and personal trainer at the Dartmouth YMCA Healthy Living Center, having joined there upon its opening in April 2014.


    At 57, Dave still engages in 60 to 90 minutes of daily exercise, as he has for the last 36 years, with a love for outdoor activities.



    Spirited, but direct and never sugar-coated, David's talks cover how to establish proactive changes in your lifestyle, and, in your approach to and concept of health and health care, to begin to Empower Your Well Being, all based on the KISS (keep it simple) and DIGS (do it gradually) concepts.

    David will also introduce you to the powerful "hidden gift", innate intelligence, that's inside your body, that few people ever realize they have or tap into to foster well being.

    Speaking is available to all groups, conventions, meetings, churches, events, and seminars.

    Talks are $120 per 30 minutes.

    Personal Training

    Learn why the brutally honest truth about “weight loss” is that this approach is counter-productive and doomed to failure for most people.

    Find out why, after starting an exercise program, your results begin to plateau or even backslide, and/or you get bored, and quit.

    Do you know the different categories of exercise you should be doing, and, that different exercises in each category can be altered in several ways, for variety and for better results and benefits?

    Do you know there are 21 body-mind healthy benefits you get from doing varied exercises in all four categories on a regular and continuous basis?


    Whether you're new to exercise and fitness and overwhelmed by what to do and how to do it, or have tried-n-quit regular exercise several times, or if you desire to get to that "next level" of conditioning, or maybe your doc gave your "that talk" about facing a potential health crisis, get the guidance, motivation and expertise you need to go beyond your goals and aspirations ...empower your evolution...choose to thrive!...Experience one-to-one personal training with a seasoned, nationally certified (AFAA) personal trainer having 21 years experience and 36 years active experience in fitness with a passion for it as a dual profession.


    Each personal training client begins with an initial consultation and health history to ensure that personal training sessions are tailored to the their particular needs, abilities and goals. Training sessions are one hour or one half-hour long and include all four types of exercise.


    One-to-one personal training is done at the beautifully designed boutique-style Healthy Living Center of the Dartmouth YMCA. This small, aesthetically gorgeous space is never crowded, has lots of windows for natural light, and a comfortable area to rest after a training session.

    David is available for personal training week days, morning to evening, and, week end mornings, to accommodate your schedule.


    *Membership is not required to sign up for personal training at the Dartmouth YMCA Healthy Living Center.​
