Kandyce Langley

Hi my name is Kandyce Langley. I am very excited to be joining the Benefitnessnow team, serving hard working men and women on their personal training journey. As a former athlete I enjoy playing volleyball, golf, basketball, competitive cheer/dance, yoga, pilates and bodybuilding. I am a Certified Personal Trainer, 200+ HR Yoga Practitioner and Reiki Master. I have a passion for the ancient philosophy of movement and breathing. This passion has helped me learn how to break down poses, instruct and guide others, and develop workouts for clients. As a personal trainer, I am very intuitive. I know what to give my clients on any given day; a listening ear, a challenging workout, a refined training strategy and everything in-between. A healthy lifestyle to me is more than lifting weights, I always emphasize to my clients it is about stretching, warming up, eating a nutritious diet, healthy digestion, maintaining stress and making sure your body gets the proper rest that it needs. I enjoy showing others what their bodies and minds are capable of doing with hard work. It is my ultimate goal to make sure my clients feel
confident, happy and live a well balanced lifestyle.

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.

Nick Jackson

Nick Jackson

My name is Dominick “Nick” Jackson, International Fitness Association Certified Personal Trainer and In Home Trainer at Benefitnessnow. I personalized in HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training), step, kick boxing, group fitness and total body conditioning. 


When I first started exercising in 1984, I was 12 years old and realized I was skin and bones. I couldn’t gain any weight, let alone produce any muscle mass. I knew it was going to take patience to get where I ultimately wanted to be. I read muscle and fitness books and followed the blueprints that were laid out for me. I had my ups and downs, being discouraged at times and not trusting the process. However, I have immersed into a healthy lifestyle and never looked back. I have learned the value of high impact exercising, HIIT exercising, and other disciplines that have transformed my body.


In 1999, I began my career as a Certified Personal Trainer, and I have been helping clients transform their bodies. I have 3 years of experience with the City of Houston Library, Water District, Human Resources and Police Department. I have trained and conditioned for the City of Houston Fire and Police Department, designing an exercise routine specifically to fit their needs. 


My goal is to cancel out any fad diets and other shortcuts that keep people from getting into the best shape of their lives. If you work hard, great benefits will follow. I am here to help you climb to the mountain top while improving your health, patience, and stress levels. Together, we can produce positive changes all the while rediscovering yourself inside and out. Let’s get ready to work!
