Born and raised on the Monterey Peninsula, Darren is a graduate of the San Francisco State University’s Kinesiology Program. He holds certificates from the National Athletic Trainers Association (NATA), licensed as an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT), and is a Certified Ergonomic Assessment Specialist (CEAS).

Combining his EMT skills with his Sports Medicine degree, Darren is fully prepared to handle any emergency situation on or off the playing field. No matter how great or small the injury, Darren is trained to deal with the injury on the spot, rehabilitate the injury, and get the athlete or patient back to their activity in a safe and effective manner. These skills also directly benefit his personal training clients who are looking for fitness but with someone who has an exceptional awareness and knowledge of how to work around a pre-existing injury and how to prevent injury all together.

Darren worked in a physical therapy clinic setting for the first 20 years of his career. He recognized the real need of his patients was to prevent repeated injury….Therapeutic Fitness. He opened BTS in 1997 so he could continue his therapy work in an environment that promotes fitness and health.
