David Troupin
Owner and Founder

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 wife and daughter, 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.
