Darren Walker

Certified Personal Trainer

My passion for personal training began in 2007. Since 2010, I have been a certified personal trainer utilizing various philosophies from my experience working with physical therapists, yoga instructors, professional bodybuilders, and many more. Some personal highlights were winning 1st Place in Miami for Physique Bodybuilding and 2nd Place for Classic Physique. My personal journey and experience training clients with diverse goals has enabled me to be a forever learner and create a motivating training environment that clients love!


Barbara Casper

Certified Personal Trainer

NASM National Academy of Sports Medicine


I have been working out and pumping iron all my adult life and had the benefit of training with two professional body builders, who competed and won numerous contests all over the United States and ended up in Muscle magazine. They were diligent and detailed.  


Also, I managed and trained professional boxers, who appeared On HBO, and pay-per-view, and have the knowledge to help anyone with training and diet for body building competitions. 

I managed a gym in Key Biscayne for a number of years, but came to realize that there is nothing more gratifying and rewarding then helping someone metamorphosis into a better and healthier lifestyle. Age is not a barrier. I have successfully trained a 98 year old, as well as a 95 year old.  The young, the mature or the immature!!!

It's never too soon, or too late.

These are the reasons I fell in love with fitness & why I continue to adopt healthy lifestyle changes today.

Exercise, along with healthful eating & support from friends & family, has helped me to overcome many challenges in life. And that’s why I have made it my career to help others live to the fullest by making small behavior changes -one by one- that add up to success, self-confidence & satisfaction

After 13 years as a health professional, my focus is to improve overall quality of life for my clients. We will work together to outline the most effective program for your fitness level & goals and using the Nudge Health App which allows me to follow your progress inside & outside of the gym by syncing with your smart phone or wearable device.
