Darryl is very passionate about his work and loves what he does which makes him even more dedicated and committed. He pushes me when I need to be pushed but yet at the same time can alter an exercise to accommodate my needs. He helped me gain muscle and build strength inside and out. I lost weight and gain muscle. He is the best trainer. Go Strong Side 💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻
As someone whose career path depends on the health, wellness and the strength of their body, it was incredibly important for me to learn the proper way to take care of myself. Strong Side Studios and Darryl helped me develop a love for taking care of myself. Darryl has not only taught me how to navigate the process, but also has continued to encourage me along the way. We were able to find what I enjoyed and what pushed me on an individual level, while growing and laughing at the same time. I became stronger physically, mentally, more health conscious and grew as a person. Strong Side Studios builds you up. This is a family and we are all here to grow, encourage and lean on each other. Thank you Darryl, you inspire.
I started working with Darryl a few months ago. He was my 3rd trainer so I was hesitant at first. His dedication to help you make your goals is top notch. When he says your goals are his goals he means it. He will push you out of your comfort zone and get you to your full potential. I am grateful to be working with him.
I love Strong Side Studios, the training I get there, and the wide array of classes that are available to me. It is clear that Darryl works tirelessly to help us achieve our personal goals in an atmosphere that is both challenging and, at many times, fun. These classes have made me feel physically stronger, healthier and more flexible. In addition, I am now more confident in my own abilities and am able to take on new challenges and classes. When the pandemic hit Darryl quickly migrated to Zoom classes and thankfully, we never missed a step with our workouts. The Strong Side family is encouraging, welcoming and inclusive. From beginner to someone returning after a break to a high performing athlete there is a class for everyone at Strong Side Studios.
I started with Strong Side Studios about 5 months now. Let me tell you I'm addicted now and actually looking forward to a workout! Darryl's bootcamps definitely kick my butt every time (and I consider myself in a pretty good physical shape). By offering support, encouragement, lots of laughs, and the occasional tears, along with regular butt kickings, Darryl has helped me transform my body.I have toned all over, have flat stomach and my arms never looked that good ever! And I'm not stopping here! He makes sure we push ourselves to the max every time we do a class. He changes the routine quite often to keep up with the challenge.
I have been virtually joining Strong Side Studios fitness classes for approximately 4 months. I didn’t know what I was getting myself in to and the classes were more intense than what i expected however it has allowed me to push myself to a level I didn’t think I could. Darryl is very professional, punctual and consistent with all of his classes. He cares about providing an effective workout to get us to reach our goals. As a result of these classes I was able to build strength which in turn I saw the difference it made for me when I did trails at the Grand Canyon recently. Eventhough I modify my exercises due to my knees, I was able to do several hikes with no problem. Thank you Darryl for pushing me!
I needed commitment, discipline, confidence and help. I found all of this with Darryl who took my goals and made them possible. He worked with me not only to lose the weight but continued to encourage me to be able to keep it off for 2 years. He knows my individual needs, listens, encourages, motivates me to believe in myself. I am down 34 pounds feeling better than ever. Full of energy and strength. Thank you Darryl and Strong Side Studios.
My journey with Darryl and the Strongside family started about 2 years ago. I have 2 kids both boys who are at extremely active ages. I got to a point where I was tired of always being tired and I wasn't spending the time with my kids having outdoor fun. I needed to work on myself if I wanted to be a healthy and happy mom for my kids. With the help of Darryl, I've not only lost weight through this journey but I've also rediscovered a confidence in myself that was lacking for a long time. At the beginning of this process, it was impossible for me to do a sit up without assistance and let's not even talk about the planks, pushups and wall sits! Muscle definition that was lost years ago have been rediscovered! Darryl is truly awesome and what makes him awesome is that he genuinely cares about what he does. He motivates and encourages you with a little tough love sprinkled in there of course Emoji. I can truly say that I am loving working out and I am looking forward to continuing my journey with Darryl and the Strongside family.
I’m an office guy that at times work long hours. And I always found myself making excuses for not working out. I’ve had other personal trainers in the past, but Darryl and Strong Side Studios are the best, hands down. My wife and her clique (3 stooges) began going to Darryl/Strong Side, so I was motivated to get back into the flow. What I admire and respect from Darryl is that he wants you to meet your goals just as much as you do. In a comical sense, I see Darryl as a big brother that just enjoys beating me up!
Before I joined Strong Side Studios I really hated to work out. With Darryl I have found a trainer that knows how to motivate me and get me to push myself to new limits. He consistently motivates me and makes me feel like he truly cares about me and my health journey. Even when I lose focus he reaches out to ensure I do not give up. Thanks to Darryl it's been over 6 years and I have lost 30 lbs. and been able to keep most of the weight off. I am so happy I found a trainer that makes me feel like family.
A Group on I purchased about 5 years ago, brought me to Strongside Studios and the Fitness Family & Supportive atmosphere has kept me here. I've won a few SSS healthy habits challenges, but everytime I'd fall off the wagon, Darryl pushes me right back on, by any means necessary! Darryl knows his clients, their injuries, weaknesses and strengths. No matter the age, there are No Excuses at Strongside Studios!
