Mission

 

Our mission is to help all clients "FIT" fitness into life.  We strive to do so through building personal relationships with all clients by working together to craft and execute customized fitness plans to achieve specific health and fitness related objectives as a TEAM.

 

Hi, my name is Derek Favreau, and I believe at the core of every person is the desire to become better today than they were yesterday. From my observation, this notion often holds true across personal and professional lines in life. Through my nearly 20 years of professional experience as a fitness trainer and health coach, I have developed a personalized and systematic approach to training program design and its application. Currently, as the owner and operator of DNA Mobile Fitness, I exclusively work to bring this unique approach directly to all clients under my training care. In doing so, I strive to efficiently guide people not only to safely improve personal fitness, but to obtain results that improve overall performance and achieve specific goals (both on/off the field and in everyday life).

Some of my highlights include strength and conditioning training for Baltimore area high school and collegiate athletes, as well as private fitness training for several prominent community figures.  I am consistently most proud of making a difference in the everyday lives of my clients with tangible long-term goals (from 9 years old to 90). For example, in the past I have teamed up with clients to achieve significant weight loss goals in preparation for special life events (i.e. weddings, reunions etc). In other cases, I have worked with certain individuals to overcome a variety of injuries pre/post operation, especially within the senior population (and even disabilities at times). Helping my clients achieve increased physical functionality and ultimately better overall quality of life is what makes me tick as a trainer. Check out the testimonial page for a glimpse of a few of my client success stories over the years.
