David Troupin
Owner and Certified Personal Trainer

David Troupin was born & raised in St. Peters, Missouri. He lived in Chicago for several years before deciding San Diego, California was the place he would like to call home and set down roots. In 2008, David became a certified personal trainer with the NASM (National Academy of Sports Medicine), ACE (American Council on Exercise), & NESTA (National Exercise & Sports Training Association).

After working for 24 Hour Fitness for several years and helping 100’s of clients achieve their fitness goals, he left the corporate environment and started Body by Dave Personal Training. David’s training methods are practical, efficient, and extremely effective in helping clients of any background to get into the best shape of their lives by Working Out Smarter not Harder.

Throughout his life he has played sports & been a very active individual, but still felt he lacked the proper knowledge to get to his fitness goals. David was plagued with constant plateaus & multiple injuries from playing sports during his teenage years. Since becoming a personal trainer, he has overcome many obstacles and achieved both personal fitness goals he has set for himself and his clients over the years. David has made it his mission to help as many people as he can.

In Dave’s free time he enjoys spending time with his family, hiking, surfing, yoga, ocean swims, snorkeling, traveling, latin dancing, playing beach volleyball, soccer, and sports with friends, and all the amazing things San Diego has to offer.

Chris – Certified Personal Trainer

Chris Certified Personal Trainer

Certified Personal Trainer

Chris was born and raised in San Diego. Chris found his way into fitness by playing sports from an early age. At the beginning of Chris’s fitness adventure, he focused on being as big, strong, and as fast as possible. That lead him to a successful couple of years of college football and running track. After college, Chris decided to focus on really learning about working out and how to do it properly not just “gym science”. He first was offered a job at 24 Hour Fitness and after receiving his first training certifications, he was off to a new career in fitness. Chris really enjoys helping people make lifestyle changes and achieving goals they never thought possible. It may be as simple as waking up, going for a jog, and doing a pull up, to training for a iron man competition. Changing people’s lives is what keeps Chris in my field of work. He has always considered himself a nerd jock. He has always been very athletic, but enjoys playing settlers of Catan, trivia games, camping, hiking, and the SCA.

Chris has over 10 years experience personal training in addition to over 5,000 hours of helping people reach their health and fitness goals. Currently Chris is studying for his certification with the Nation Academy of Sports Medicine and studying physical therapy.
