In 2005, I decided I wanted to help others make positive changes towards improving their overall health and fitness. I obtained 4 National Certifications through the Cooper Institute. I initially began coaching part time at a local gym in Houston, TX. Towards the end of 2005 I started DCookson Fitness and took on the role of Training Manager at Fitness Exchange. I am currently coaching clients at River Oaks Gym in Houston. I have worked with over 70 clients in the past 7 years ranging in various ages, professions, conditions and fitness goals. I can proudly say each client made great progress (and is still making progress) while working together under my guidance! I hold four national certifications from the Cooper Institute in Dallas, Texas. Certified as a: Physical Fitness Specialist, Biomechanics Specialist (Exercise Mechanics) Nutrition Coach Wellness Coach Dwayne is certified in CPR and carries Liability Insurance coverage. Dwayne has won the Out Smart Readers Choice Award for Best Personal Trainer for 2006 & 2010, 2011!
