At DFW Fitness Connection whether your goal is getting back to a better level of fitness from a long break or injury, to run or walk your first 5k or marathon, ride your 1st or your best Hotter than Hell or Epic ride, Tough Mudder, or your first bodybuilding competition. My philosophy is simple. Utilizing decades of experience and "tools in my toolbox" have been results driven. In setting your personal program I will get to know you and what motivates you, then create an approach around your schedule to get you there. 

One thing is for sure, a better performing body comes from a better functioning one. Let's get started!
