Dan Duran

Yuba City, CA 95991

Hello, my name is Dan and I live and work near Denver, Colorado. I spent twenty-two years working in law enforcement with an emphasis on training. I promoted my way up to Training Captain and managed training for hundreds of employees and trainers. In 2009 I had reached a burnout stage and my health was suffering. I had been teaching fitness for several years at police academies and had been told many times I should consider becoming a personal trainer. I took a leap of faith and poured all of my heart and passion into helping others feel and look better. It was the best decision I have ever made. I've been a business owner, private trainer and fitness director. I am currently the Executive Vice-President and lead educator for PTA Global, a global fitness education company. The real bonus is I am the healthiest I have been in my entire life.
