Don Bahneman has worked in the health and fitness industry since 1994, taking an individualized approach for each client. Holding undergraduate degrees in Athletic Training and Sports Management, and Graduate work in Human Performance, Don brings a strong educational background to the personal training industry.

As a national presenter, Don has educated the fitness industry on various topics since 2003. Also, Don is an accredited author and contributor in textbooks, magazines, television, radio and various online outlets. Don is a certified strength and conditioning specialist and personal trainer and holds over twelve additional specialty certifications covering corrective exercise, Russian kettlebells, bodyweight training, and nutrition. With experiences training some of the very best athletes in major sports to working with clients after having serious medical issues (strokes, heart attacks, Parkinson’s and orthopedic issues) and everything in between, Don has taken a personal challenge of getting the best from each client and make them not only better, but well equipped for the long haul!
"Don is the best trainer I have ever worked with. On a personal level, he is honest, has a great sense of humor, listens, and really wants his clients to succeed. He can easily partner education and background information with various exercises and really teach his clients to take control of their own fitness. I am grateful to Don for giving me the tools and confidence to really make an impact on my personal health and well-being."
