My experience training with Dave was a very positive one. He really tested the limits of my athletic ability, and encouraged me while I was training. He was also observant to realize when I needed to take a breather so as to not hurt myself. I really appreciate everything Dave did for me and would definitely recommend his services to anyone that wants to increase their athletic performance.
My name is Lisa. I am in my late 30's and a mother of 2. I was a client of Dave's for over a year and I was in the best shape of my life when he worked with me. He gave me a diet to follow and I worked out boot camp style three times a week. I lost 12lbs of fat and gained 10 pounds of muscle in a very short period. Dave is a very dedicated trainer who believes in your potenital and pushes you to your limit. He is also very knowledgeable in the subject of overall health. I highly recommend working with him if you want to see a major transformation in your body.

The time I spent training with David Mermont was nothing but a positive experience. Under his tutelage I learned many new and challenging ways to train my body. Although some of his methods may seem farther away from regular techniques they yielded definite results. Dave took great pride in his efforts working with me, not only pushing me in the gym but outside as well. Most importantly he made sure that I stuck to a proper diet and nutrition plan. One of his greatest talents was developing a rapport with me as well making sure we were training towards a common goal, showing an interest in my life outside of the gym training. Physically under Dave’s guidance my strength and size increased as well as my ability execute exercises with the proper technique. I look forward to the time when I can once again work with him.

For anyone serious about training for a sport, rehabilitating after an injury or just getting in shape I couldn't recommend any trainer more highly than Dave Memont. I have been working with him for almost a year and the results I have achieved far surpass what I've been able to do on my own or with other trainers. More importantly, perhaps, I have gained knowledge and techniques that will enable me to stay healthy and fit for many years into the future, even if only working on my own.
Dave's knowledge of physiology and the science of exercise is truly impressive. I have arthritis in my knees and Dave helped me understand more about my condition (and how to improve it) than any of the other doctors or physical therapists I had seen. After working with Dave for six months, my knees had improved to the point where I could do activities that I hadn't done in ten years. I am now planning on climbing Mt. McKinley.
Dave also has a very focused and engaging style: during the session you know that he is 100% focused on you, and every detail of your form. His guidance and direction is clear and concise; you gain confidence from knowing that Dave will ensure you don't hurt yourself. His quiet intensity and own example of fitness are motivating, but in a supportive and lighthearted manner. Even when I'm working out on my own, I imagine what Dave would be telling me and it helps to work out harder and smarter.

To Whom It May Concern:
Throughout my life I have been an active and athletic individual. I competed in the Massachusetts Strongman competition in 2001 and won the lightweight woman’s division. However, competing for a few more years, I became very burned out on exercising. When that was combined with the daily trials of life I had lots of excuses as to why I didn’t have time to work out.
As with most people I would start my new exercise plan to get back into shape with some sort of goal like a wedding, or vacation but would never make it very far. The motivation would last a few weeks, and then I found the same excuses not to go to the gym.
Knowing that I lacked the motivation on my own I started training with David Memont in 2005 who from the beginning knew exactly what my goals where. David not only took the time to train me, but also was available for questions that I had about nutrition, or training on my own. David sat with me and created a nutrition plan taking into account my likes and dislikes which made it easy to stick with it.
As I trained with David it was evident that training was more than “just a job” for him. He was passionate about training and passionate about helping his clients. He possesses a quality of being able to motivate a person far beyond what they believe they are capable of. Instead of just doing the generic workout routine day after day he would create new and exciting routines and push me to my limit. He was able to determine that limit, and make sure I reached it each and every workout. There were times I thought to myself there is no way I can lift this much, or do this exercise but sure enough David knew I could and I did.
I would highly recommend David as a personal trainer to anyone. In fact, I could see David running his own gym someday. He will challenge you in your workouts daily and provide guidance in your nutrition. He will strive to keep you motivated and maintain your self-improvement.

I hope you had a Happy Father’s Day. I just wanted to tell you about my little adventure up in the White Mountains this weekend.
I have had this on my list for over a year, but felt I was not strong enough to keep up with my friend, who happens to be an expert hiker.
Well I was wrong on Saturday, June 14th, I finally did it. I not only climbed Mount Cannon in New Hampshire once, but a couple of times. The hike started off with what I can remember as 1.5 miles of nothing but rocks; yes I mean rocks, big ones, and lots of them. I had to use every bit of my training to get up that mountain and to keep up with my friend. The last half a mile up the mountain was not that bad and I was happy when we arrived at the summit and observation tower.
Well that was not enough, using different trails we then traveled across the mountain, then down to Lonesome Lake, took a break at the hut and then back up to the summit for a total of 6+ miles and I am happy to say with out my training I would have never made it. I finally had to leave the mountain so we took the Tam down and it was worth it.
Thanks for helping me accomplish this task,
