"I would highly recommend nutrition and fitness coaching from Daniel. I have received coaching from him over the past couple of years, and there is no doubt that if you are committed to his programs, you will see results! Not only does he have incredible knowledge regarding fitness and nutrition, but he is so good at helping you meet your specific needs. I have worked out consistently most of my life, but I have really struggled with my nutrition and weight gain in recent years. As soon as I started working with Daniel, I made gains that I had never seen before. He helped me lose almost 20 lbs in 4-5 months, but also helped me develop eating habits that have helped me keep my lean body mass since then. He is a great motivator and deeply cares about you as a person. His check in sheets are great. They keep me accountable to my goals, but I would also say Daniel takes a very wholistic approach. He looks at water intake, sleep, stressors, step count, and maintaining a work life balance with your training. He is very relatable, and is great at adjusting to your needs as a client. Getting coaching with Daniel is one of the best decisions I have made. "



I created GRIT LIFT to help people. Bodybuilding has changed my life in many ways, and I love seeing it do the same for others.


I've had an interest in fitness since I was little, which mainly stemmed from an insecurity of being called chubby as a kid. Once I became a teenager, I started to love fitness and the process of lifting and making progress. I wrestled throughout high school and was captain for a couple  of years as well. I was never the best, but I was willing to work extremely hard to be the best I could be. My work ethic has always been a strength of mine. I also have two black belts, one in Shotokan Karate and Hakoru Juijitsu, which took me twelve years to obtain.


When I graduated high school, I decided I wanted to focus on lifting weights. This eventually led me into bodybuilding, which is when I started to make what I considered real progress as far as muscle building goes. I fell in love with it. In 2015-2016, I competed in four Men's Physique competitions through the NPC, and placed 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 6th in the last one. Most recently, I competed in the WNBF California Muscle Mayhem in July 2022, placing 3rd in the middle weight class.
