unnamed-2Hello…my name is Derek and I am a personal trainer and General Manager of Next Level Fitness, La Quinta.

I’m from a small town called Ridgecrest, California, but I claim San Diego as my hometown since I spent the majority of my adult life there. I relocated to Palm Desert, California in 2011 and haven’t looked back. I love the area and the people here.

Fitness is my passion!  I absolutely love helping people improve their overall quality of life through exercise and nutrition and to be able to help a person feel better about themselves is incredibly rewarding.

There is nothing I’d rather be doing!
