My name is David Seals. I’ve been training people on LA’s Westside for almost 25 years and have loved every moment of it. I’ve always been fascinated by the human body and how it performs. Whether it’s in an athletic setting, a rehabilitative setting, a psychological setting, or a spiritual setting, the body always amazes. I still continue to be highly motivated by the challenge of figuring out how to fit the puzzle pieces together to rehabilitate someone’s injury, inspire and train them to do something they never thought possible for themselves (like running a marathon or climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro), preparing them for pregnancy, rehabilitating them after chemotherapy, optimizing their posture and alignment to keep them functional into their 80’s and 90’s, or coming up with super fun programs to help people forget that they actually are exercising.
Once an obese teenager myself, I lost over 50lbs. and asked myself “What if I kept going? How cool could it get?” After almost 50 years on Planet Earth, the answer continues to be “pretty cool”. I continue to run long distance, play full court basketball, tennis, put insane amounts of mileage on my road bike, run the Santa Monica Stairs, all pain free. The key is finding the balance between what you want to do and what you need to do.
I’ve been certified by the American Council of Exercise, the American College of Sports Medicine, the National Academy of Sports Medicine. I’ve graduated from the Santa Monica Healing Arts School in Shiatsu and Chinese Medicine. Yet I still find the greatest teacher to be in the awareness that comes from doing.
If we’re lucky to meet, I hope to learn twice as much from you as you learn from me. Wishing you a long healthy pain free life, full of rich experience and love.
All The Best,
