Deric’s interest in health and fitness began at the age of 14 with resistance training for sports in school. After high school, he continued weight/strength training and experimenting with different workouts and recovery periods. Years of exercising in different gyms and reading about health and fitness led Deric to obtaining his Personal Trainer’s Certification from the American Council on Exercise (ACE) in 2010. His interest in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) and Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) brought him to Team FVGC in 2011, when he began training and competing in BJJ.
Deric enjoys helping others reach their goals and having fun with variety of exercises and workouts while training. Hearing others mention the results they notice and helping others do exercises they think they can’t, are his favorite parts about being a Trainer.
