My name is Derek and I am a Master Trainer and Assistant Fitness Manager for 24 Hour Fitness in Anaheim Hills. I have been athletic and fit for most of my life and played after school sports including basketball, football, softball and little league. I was also in a bowling league for many years and competed nationally in archery. During high school I played volleyball but spent most of my time skateboarding after school. I still skateboard and snowboard to this day and spend a lot of time working on my basketball skills. I work out 4 to 5 days a week mixing resistance training, basketball, and swimming. I graduated from Cal State Fullerton with a BS in Kinesiology and the California University of Pennsylvania with an MS in Exercise Science and Health Promotion. I hold several personal training certifications and am a certified speed and explosion coach. My professional experience includes 3 years as a physical therapy and cardiac rehab aid and 7 years experience as a personal trainer
