Dave Backhaus, NESTA-GEI

Coach

Dave may be one of our newer team members, but he’s got the Bodysmith spirit deep in his heart. He loves the family atmosphere at the Bodysmith and lovingly refers to it as the “Cheers” of workout facilities. Need we say more?

We’d better…there’s lots more to Dave than a smile and friendly attitude.

Dave is a great member of the Bodysmith family because he relates to what makes all of us happy in life and he lives by the “everything in moderation.” That means he not only loves staying active in cardio class, hitting the weights and riding his bike, but also appreciates chilling out and watching movies with family, friends and a slice of pizza.

Make no mistake, though. Dave knows “what’s what” when it comes to staying healthy, and he’s committed himself to helping spread the word. For the last three years, Dave has been working to earn his B.A. in Education so he can teach Physical Education. Now, with less than a year to go, he’s looking forward to his new career: “I believe that teaching and fitness coaching are a natural fit for me because I love helping others achieve their goals.”

There are a few other things to know about Dave. He has an incredible wife, Sarah; a darling puppy, Stanley Gene the Chihuahau; and a band on the side, Jump the Tiger. But if you’ve met Dave, you probably know everything you need to know: that he’s here to help brighten your day and get a little bit closer to your fitness goal, every day.
