While not a gifted athlete at a young age, that didn’t stop Don’s desire to be the best he could be and participate in as many sports as he could. Skiing, Baseball, Basketball, Football, Track and Field were all part of his early childhood experience. Swimming became the main focus from High School to College. Don competed locally for Hayward High and his freshman year at Chabot Jr. College. He transferred to CSU Chico where his competitive swimming career came to an end. Through his high school and college years Don taught swim lessons to all age groups. He was the head coach for a summer swim team in San Leandro and an assistant coach for a local USA swim team.
Don has maintained his fitness routines over the years and after ending a career in the insurance business, he is now available to guide you with your fitness goals. Don holds a degree in Kinesiology from Cal State University Hayward/East Bay. Customizing a fitness program that fits your needs is what Don can do best for you. Whether you need a basic fitness routine or you want to train for a triathlon, 5k, 10k, ½ or full marathon, Don can provide you with the training techniques for you to meet your goals. He believes that to achieve the best fitness results all you have to do is have fun, be consistent, adapt to body changes, and focus on the journey-not the destination.
