Dylan is a Personal Trainer and Strength Coach who works with anyone willing to put in the time and effort! While powerlifting and strength sports are his passion, he loves helping people live their best life through their health and fitness. Dylan has been working with clients and athletes since 2017 where he has specialized in helping people create lifelong habits that will help them reach their goals, and sustain their results for years to come. His system is a combination of progressive overload with full body movements, and a corrective exercise approach to help correct imbalances, reduce pain, and increase longevity.
Since starting personal training in 2014 I’ve had the pleasure to work with a wide array of clients, varying in age from teens all the way to people in their 70s and with goals ranging from competitive sports performance to those who simply want to reclaim their health and the ability to age well. My own fitness journey began in 2011 with the University of Iowa Powerlifting Club where I had the opportunity to meet, train with, compete against, and most importantly learn from some amazing lifters. Even if you don’t have aspirations of becoming a powerlifter there are still too many numerous benefits to resistance training to pass up on it entirely. Eventually I hope you come to enjoy training as much as I do and I can’t wait to help guide you along the way in your process towards better health and performance.
