I grew up in the Conejo Valley and have always loved fitness and a variety of sports. I live in Newbury Park with my wife of 25 years and high school sweetheart, Kim. We have 2 grown children, Jordan 21 and Josh 23. I enjoy a variety of sports such as wakeboarding, surfing, snowboarding and motor cross to name a few, and love to stay fit. After playing high school football, my love for the sport continued as I coached Youth football and basketball for my son's team for over 10 years. Now that my kids are grown, I found that I missed coaching so much that I decided to continue with my passion and open Bodydizign. I am a Certified Personal Trainer with NASM, with an additional certificate as a Performance Enhancement Specialist and SPIN certified. I have also been EMT certified in the state of California. I have been in the fitness industry for over 25 years with a huge focus in youth athletics. I also specialize in Hypertrophy training for those individuals and athletes looking to gain muscle mass and definition. My training sessions are full of variety, keeping you challenged and always progressing.

Diane moved to Newbury Park after living her first 27 years in the San Fernando Valley. She married and raised 2 daughters, now 19 and 22 years of age. Diane has been in the fitness industry for over 6 years. She started her career in fitness not only to stay healthy, but to help and encourage others as well! As her children grew she was looking for something to do with her free time. She turned to teaching and it was one of the best decisions she ever made. Channeling her enthusiasm for staying fit and healthy into challenging and motivating her clients. An instructor in both Sculpting and Abs as well as Indoor Cycling she became certified in TRX instruction after falling in love with it. "I am in the best shape of my life right now, especially after starting TRX! I walk taller, have improved posture, and I am no longer plagued by recurring back issues that I've had most of my life! I hope to continue to teach as long as my body lets me!"
I have always loved working out. I have participated in everything from Yoga to Pilates to Bootcamps to Hard Core Cardio classes. I love trying new things and it wasn't until Herb introduced TRX to me that I wanted to learn more about it. I am now a certified TRX Suspension Trainer.
