About Dan

NYC Personal Trainer 20141206 | DAN MARKS "ABOUT"Hi, I’m Dan Marks.

Welcome to Dan Delivers Fitness.

I get a charge out of what I do for a living!

Did you have a favorite teacher or coach back in school? I am a trained, and possibly born, Physical Educator who strives to be a difference-making teacher with the adults and teenagers I work with. I have a feel for people, affirm and recognize them, and help them identify their talents and develop their potential.

My job as a personal trainer, in a nutshell, is to bounce clients off the couch and off the sidelines, teach them how to exercise well, and ignite a process that delivers results that thrill and energize, all in the comfort of their home.

I’ve been fortunate to spend more than 14,000 hours with clients and my average tenure/duration working with individuals is 2 ½ years.

A favorite aspect of my career, and one that I never expected, is the stories I get to hear from clients. We have fun! And, I tell a few of my own, and we’re both better off for it.

My passion as a personal trainer derives from the exhilaration and meaning I experienced in the sports and games I played as a child and young adult, and today finds expression in my own workouts and in my fascination with the exquisite structure and function of the human body.

In 2006, I moved to New York from Princeton, New Jersey, to befriend, ally myself with, and shamelessly steal from, the very best in the fitness business. My mentors and colleagues include: Sue Hitzmann, creator of the MELT Method; Lorna Kleidman, fitness author and two-time World Kettlebell Sport champion; and, Alec Helner & Debbie Parsons, assessment-driven functional exercise gurus. I enjoy the learning and translating it into even better practices for use with my clients.

In 2011, I won the Gold Medal for Kettlebell Sport Masters division, 64kg weight class at the New York Open.
