Dave Herber Certified Personal Trainer

Welcome to  I’m Dave Herber, an NSCA Certified personal trainer living in New Castle, PA.   I manage a corporate fitness center in Pittsburgh and personal train clients looking to lose weight, get muscular, and increase their strength at the Anytime Fitness in Neshannock or in the privacy of their own homes.

I’ve been a certified personal trainer since 1996 and a lifestyle and weight loss consultant since 2001.  Often the quest to “Lose Weight” ends up with just another failed fad diet. Most people don’t understand supportive nutrition so they succumb to the latest fad diet that is promoted by the media and Hollywood.

As your personal trainer, I will empower you to make more healthful eating decisions.  No fad diets here, just good common sense and guidance.  Let me educate you on how to properly speed up your metabolism and burn fat at a faster rate!

If you are struggling with a weight loss plateau, feel lost in the gym, or are bored and not seeing results with your latest workout, then fill out this contact form and lets talk about Personal Training.

Use the contact form above and mention “DISTANCE COACHING”.  In the meantime, enjoy my blog as I continue on my life’s journey to learn more about the ever evolving world of fitness, new methods to help you, and breakthroughs in nutrition.
