David Beiser

David served as an instructor in the Department of Kinesiology at UW-Oshkosh and Purdue University. He currently serves numerous clients in Fox Valley, WI. People enjoy David’s thorough educational and integrated approach, using lifestyle modifications to improve health and the effectiveness of exercise to achieve faster and longer lasting results. With all of his clients, David assesses posture, strength & flexibility imbalances, stability, holistic health and general function of the body (e.g. stability, strength, balance, agility, flexibility, power, etc.). 

When David is not with clients, he enjoys practicing his own strength/athletic training, going hiking or camping and attending Sunday morning church service with family. Other personal interests include: taking road trips, bonfires with friends, reading, and horseback riding. 

David recalls his past as a 19-year old boy suffering from anemia, ulcers, and Crohn's Disease. His passion for helping others came from a lifetime of learning, adapting, and successfully regaining his own health. Now, he is dedicated to sharing his knowledge and experience by coaching others.
