Javier Edwards

I've been working with Dedrick since the middle of my rookie year. I felt myself losing some explosiveness and flexibility during the season so I started going in for a weekly tune up lift with Dedrick. From the moment I started working with him I noticed his scientific approach to training. His in depth explanations of the lifts and movements really made an impression on me, and I could feel the difference in my body after just 2 sessions. It was at that point that I decided to trust DB to be my offseason trainer. I'm now entering my 3rd season with the Houston Texans and everytime I report to training camp and OTA's my coaches are impressed with my physique and explosiveness. In a profession that is becoming saturated with unqualified trainers and impractical movements, DB is a breath of fresh air. Whether you are a pro athlete looking to increase your speed and explosiveness like I am, or if you just want to get back in shape, DB will craft a program that gets you the results you desire. It's not gonna be easy, but it's gonna be safe and it's gonna work. DB is a great trainer and I would recommend him to anybody who has a genuine desire to better themselves physically. Thanks for everything DB!

In a short time, Dedrick was able to get me into great shape. His attention to detail and patient coaching led to a solid end to the season. My only regret is that we didn’t have more time together!

Emmanuel Ellerbee

My husband and I trusted in DB to train us for the most special day of our lives. We both have different athletic ability, and DB was able to cater our workouts to get the best results for our specific body type. My goal was to tone up while loosing a few lbs and my husband’s goal was to drop weight while putting on muscle. In just a few short weeks, my husband went from 17% to 11% body fat. We love working with DB because he always has a smile on his face and a positive attitude. He was also very flexible with our schedule which was super helpful. Thanks DB, we love you!

Rachel & Ben Stocker

I started training with DB 11 months before my wedding day with the goal of shedding weight and toning up. I was already active and working out, but DB showed me new exercises and worked areas of my body I never had before. I was seeing results and enjoying my workouts so much that it sparked my fiancé’s interest to start training with DB too. DB was able to customize our workout regimens to meet each of our specific goals. I lost excess weight and toned far beyond my initial goals and Richard grew stronger and more agile. We love you DB and can’t thank you enough!

Mary Ann & Richard Mason

“I first found DB through a friend who had trained with him and couldn't say enough good things. I had always been active but felt like I wasn't seeing the results I should have been given the workouts I was doing. That's when I gave DB a shot - it was such a great workout that my husband started training with DB as well. We started training 7 months before our wedding and he helped us get into the best shape of our lives through personalized and varied workouts. He's an amazing trainer and great person, thank you DB!“

Ashley & Nick Pappas

“I started training with DB about four months before my wedding. Right away, DB started setting goals for me. I felt that each day I went to work out, DB challenged and encouraged me. I was beyond proud of what I was able to achieve in only 4 short months! I continue to work with DB 2-3 times a week and love every minute of it!”

Chandler Williamson

“I started training with DB, 4 months before my wedding. I was always active, had an athletic build, but was looking to tighten up and learn new techniques! Working with DB ignited a new love of circuit training with proven results! Each day was different, yet an aggressive full body workout. He pushed me to lift heavier weights, sprint longer and faster, and do more than I thought I could. The environment of DB, I think, is the best part! You go in each day and know what you need to do. You can take as long as you need, so it's at your own pace if you want to get out of there more quickly!"
