Dave says ‘Bodybuilding is just what I’m good at… other than that I’m just a regular guy. I’ve been playing guitar and singing since I was 9 years old. I started playing baseball and football when I was a kid. In high school, I lettered in football, basketball, and track. I ran track in Jr. College…400m, 800m, mile and cross country.’
After graduating from the University of Texas with a B.S. in Physical Education, and an M.Ed. in Exercise Physiology, Dave taught and coached in the Texas public schools for 9 years.
Dave says ‘I joined a bodybuilding gym after I graduated and have been competing since 1983. I’ve won 3 state, and 9 international titles in drug-free bodybuilding. I’ve won 5 state and 1 national title in powerlifting and briefly held a drug-free world record.’ In 1994 he moved back to Austin, Texas where he started his personal training career.
