“I loved working out with Derrick! He challenged me plenty, but he designed workouts specifically for me, so we always went at a pace I could handle.
When I started with Derrick I literally couldn’t do a single push-up. I started with knees down, little by little Derrick would encourage me to add in more and more full pushups. Eventually I was doing 50-60 real pushups in a workout session. The other issue I had when I started with Derrick was weak lower abs due to a surgery I had years ago. I never understood what “engage your lower abs” meant, because I couldn’t even figure out how to move them. Derrick taught me some ab exercises that involved a very subtle movement. At first I felt like I was doing nothing. In time, I was able to isolate and engage those muscles and build great strength there. Strong muscles become more important as we age, so these improvements that happened working with Derrick are invaluable.
Derrick is an excellent trainer and a truly quality human being.”
