Coach Darien has been involved in the health and wellness industry for a good part of his life. He has practised bodybuilding for the past 14 years, he is self-taught in nutrition with the exception of being a certified pn1 nutrition coach, and personal trainer.
He wasn't always the way you see him today. When he first began his journey he was a very skinny, unconfident, unmotivated boy trying to find his way through life. Darien's immense curiosity led him at first to sneaking into a university gym with his friends learning how to weight lift. Not knowing what to do he started reading books( not google). Then eventually he upgraded to listening to industry leaders on podcasts, reading more books and articles on the scientific path to proper nutrition, and on exercise science principles.
He now uses all his knowledge to help others on their path to becoming the best versions of themselves through diet, exercise and men's fashion.
At SMA Dojo Darien will be facilitating how nutrition is taught to help improve health and athletic performance for the many people training here. He hopes to serve everyone here to the fullest of his
