In 2005, I decided I wanted to help others make positive changes towards improving their overall health and fitness. I obtained 4 National Certifications through the Cooper Institute. I initially began coaching part time at a local gym in Houston, TX. Towards the end of 2005 I started DCookson Fitness and took on the role of Training Manager at Fitness Exchange.
Currently I train clients at River Oaks Gym on West Gray. I have worked with over 60 clients in the past 8 years ranging in various ages, professions, conditions and fitness goals. I can proudly say each client made great progress (and is still making progress) while working together under my guidance!
I hold four national certifications from the Cooper Institute in Dallas, TX. My certifications are:
Physical Fitness Specialist, Biomechanics Specialist (Exercise Mechanics), Nutrition Coach, and Wellness Coach.
I am certified in CPR and carries Liability Insurance coverage.
I have won the Out Smart Readers Choice Award for Best Personal Trainer for 2006, 2010 & 2011!
Dwayne is also certified in Functional Movement Screening (FMS) which identifies asymmetries and imbalances. Utilizing corrective exercises and stretching, Dwayne can work with you to correct these asymmetries and imbalances.
Dwayne has a coaching style and approach that integrates strength training with functional movement. Given his personal and professional background, he is able to deliver a fitness and wellness program that applies to a wide diverse client base.
It is very gratifying guiding others down a fitness and wellness path. Helping others to achieve fitness goals is an amazing process to experience and it is something I truly enjoy. There are three basic elements to health and fitness, no matter if you are trying to lose weight or gain weight. You have to lift weights, move your body, and eat healthy. You have to maintain all three components on a consistent basis to achieve your health and fitness goals.
Hopefully I can help inspire you to take your health and fitness into your own hands and make your goals a reality! Click on one of the menu items above for more information, or click here to contact me and get started!
