"I've been a jogger for 25 years, done some cycling outdoors and some weight work in the gym. I met David Garza in the fall of 2007, he taught a spin class I was taking one morning, exactly the motivational teacher I hoped would hop on the bike in front of the class. We jumped through the heartrate zones and I felt that the hour was worth it. We talked after class and learned that he was big into triathlons, training, motivation and lots of teaching others how to work with their bodies. I had done my first triathlon and had 6 months to get ready for my 2nd, getting wind of that he quickly jumped on letting me know he was there for any and all questions. Through his TC (total conditioning classes), spinning indoors and outdoors, and swimming tips, I felt eager to attack, instead of just doing, my 2nd triathlon! After May I went on to do 5 more in 2008, with Dave talking me into each one of them. Going from keeping in shape for life, to actually feeling strong from the arms down to the legs to do anything i set my mind on, Dave helped me mold my weaknesses into strengths. His never say quit and keep fighting attitude has kept me postive throughout, even when I realized no one is making me do this, it's not a homework assignment, there's every reason to sleep in every morning, but when Dave is waiting for you at class you don't want to fail him. He dares everyone to keep positive, his private training sessions are very powerful, mine was on the bike outdoors, and he's always there with a Smile.

"For: individuals that want a life-enhancing personal training experience
I have known David Garza for over a year. During that time, we have related one-on-one in individual training and I have been part of a multi-week class led by him to prepare us for participation in sprint triathlons. I find David to be uniquely adroit and comfortable in both settings. This, I think, stems from an excellent blending of good people skills with a formidable knowledge of his subject of personal training. He has a talent for placing the trainee, not himself, at the center of the activity. Even in group I felt I was getting personal attention---because I was. When the rare question arose to which he did not have an immediate answer, he would research and get back with the answer that session or the next. He listens without interrupting. He enjoys what he does and it is manifested in workouts that are upbeat. Because of his people skills, he is able to challenge an individual without demanding too much from where the trainee is in their development. I would recommend him most highly to anyone that wanted a unique, tailored and successful personal training experience. If there are any questions about this recommendation, I would be glad to respond personally (firstname.lastname@example.org)."
