Dave Backhaus, B.S.


Dave’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 motto “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. Dave earned his B.S. in Secondary Education and teaches Physical Education. He’s enjoying 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 a darling puppy, Stanley Gene the Chihuahau; and a couple of bands on the side. But if you’ve met Dave, you probably know everything you need to know: he’s here to help brighten your day and get a little closer to your fitness goal every day.
