Nabil Dahi

Hello, my name is Nabil Dahi, I’m a Certified Personal Trainer as well as Self Defense and Martial Arts Instructor for both men & women and kids of all ages. I have acquired 3 black belts in Aikido / Iaido and extensive self-defense training.


I first gained an interest in fitness when I was 17 years old. This interest quickly developed into a passion and since then I have been dedicated to understanding the most effective and efficient way to increase muscle mass and decrease body fat, through training and nutrition.


This journey began when I initially started coaching family members and friends for fun and developed into my chosen career path in 2009. This career path was an obvious choice for me as I have a natural ability to coach and motivate people to understand and trust in my

amazing results. Along with the skills I have developed to be able to design effective goal specific training programs and pinpoint flaws within a clients current nutritional and lifestyle habits and correct them in a way that is both easy to understand and manageable within their current needs and circumstances.
