Hear what people have to say about David Lyons Fitness...

"NO ONE is doing what David Lyons is doing for people. I've used other trainers and programs. Exercise is good but without the proper training techniques, you are wasting time and money. So thankful to have David as a trainer! Thanks for keeping me accountable and helping me with the tools needed to overcome limitations." ~ Ben Hoch

"David Lyons has provided the final piece in the puzzle of health for me, at 45 years old, to be in the best shape of my life. “OptimalBody” has changed my life, it could change yours too… Meeting David Lyons, and being lucky enough to work out with him over the last several months, has allowed me to finally understand and perform exercises which will benefit me moving forward for the rest of my life. Bench pressing and dumbbell curls are great, but there is no way to put a value on how much improvement the right regimen, with the right coach, and the right attitude can help each one of us. David understands the challenges that we face, they are his challenges too. I recommend OptimalBody to anyone who has been unlucky enough to be faced with an obstacle in life, I no longer consider myself unlucky. Thank you David Lyons for what you do!"

“Hi, David…I’m loving the workout and am glad it’s FINALLY something I can physically do. Of course, I need to get better at the exercises but I know that as I get stronger I’ll be able to complete reps as recommended. Thank you for checking in. And thank you again for this workout.. I know I can do this! Blessings, David.” ​

“David Lyons, I would first like to thank you for motivating me to get moving. You are an inspiration! I am now eating right, taking supplements, and exercising every day. Now I have hope and determination. I feel my body getting stronger everyday. In June I could hardly walk 5 minutes on the treadmill, today I ran 15 minutes! Thank you! — feeling strong."

"This is where I wanted to improve, and I just proved to myself that I definitely did! Thanks to David Lyons and team and each member who inspired me to work harder! Before joining this Group, I was lost and didn’t know much about the right nutrition and exercise. Now I’m so much stronger, leaner and my fatigue is under control. I’m positive and feel like I’m in control again. Good luck to everybody conquering their own “mountain”."

"OptimalBody has changed my LIFE – I stress LIFE because I didn’t have much of one before. I was, honestly, just barely getting by day by day with a poor diet, in bed, not driving, and basically super sad. My list of CANS and WINS is growing every day: I have so much more energy! I’m happier and the entire family is noticing and enjoying that part. I played in the leaves with my daughter the other day. I drove yesterday (a little slower than most but I did it!). When a friend told me that she went ice skating. Instead of being down that my body couldn’t my internal dialogue was: “I cannot wait until I’m doing that?!” Some days I actually have a good memory! I went on a business trip with my husband and we walked a bit through the city – this would have never happened before OptimalBody! My balance is greatly improved – I haven’t tripped or fallen in weeks. As silly as this may sound…I swept the house (ok it took an hour but I did it)! My rowing time is now TWO MINUTES FASTER! TWO! Thank you Dave and Kendra for catching me when I was falling. I’m not consumed by this anymore. I have MS, yes..but I also have hope!"

I have been training online with David Lyons founder of MSFC. Yesterday, for the 1st time in 2 years, I walked without limping or swaying !! It lasted for a while, but it means this is working........ I am over the moon........ this is REALLY WORKING !!! I have had MS for 18 years, being more symptomatic for the last 2-3 years, walking only a few yards, with back pain, and limping. I am determined to work hard and the training I receive from David Lyons will help me reach my goal !

"I was diagnosed with MS 2.5 years ago. Symptoms increased after my youngest baby was born in November. When I found David I was so frustrated. I had begun working out again, post baby. I was falling constantly, unable to walk around my neighborhood with my kids, and not getting any real benefits from a workout that I could do just a year ago. I’ve always been very active. In tears I reached out. The first workout with David changed my outlook completely. I went from falling and frustrated to empowered and making progress. David understands the body and MS. He encourages and pushes me. I am so thankful for him and this program that he created."

"I worked in one on one personal training with David for over a year. I was Ina wheelchair part of each day, and in a walker, or using a cane and a service dog. He has a philosophy that if you're in a wheelchair he'll help you get to a walker. If you're using a walker, he'll help you to a cane. If you're using a cane he can get you walking unassisted. If you can walk, hell get you to run. And he's right. I trained twice a week for 45 min. I can run about 200 yards now! I am continuing to train remotely to stay strong, coordinated and loving my best life. No regrets. Best decision I ever made for my health and wellbeing."

"I have been working one on one with David for a few months now. Early days, but I feel stronger and am starting to walk better. David has shown thru his knowledge of MS and strength training, how to “ get ahead of MS “ as he states. Focus and commitment are huge. He always explains what we are doing on that session and why. I can now lift my Westie puppies ! They are 20 and 22 pounds. I could not lift them before working with David. I am walking better, still slow, but better as we go along I am very glad I am working with David, his knowledge is applied at every session. Seeing progress is the best reward for this program. Life changing"

I want to thank God for leading me to this amazing group. David, Kendra and the entire team at MSFC are a blessing I’ve been training with David for about a month now and I plan on continuing. The expertise and guidance David has provided through my training sessions have been amazing. His consistent updates and redesigning of my sessions keeps me progressing consistently. David’s motivation and positive outlook keeps me focused and committed to an on going 3-day on / 1 day active rest day schedule. He’s helping develop a new attitude in me. Along with more confidence and drive to stay healthy, I make the right diet choices to support progress in my workouts. I’ve discovered new confidence as Now I look forward to continuing training with David David has helped me make permanent life changes for better health. His fitness and nutritional expertise has led to drastic improvements in my daily life. It is entirely worth the investment in myself."

"I must preface this response by saying I am a Navy vet and David was and continues to be a JARHEAD aka a Marine. Once a Marine always a Marine therefore, anything positive I may say about him should be magnified X's 1000. I've had MS since the mid 80's, relapsing remitting to secondary progressive now. Assistive devices 2 canes, walker and scooter. An exacerbation 2007 or 2008 locked my left knee in the extended position so bending it using my left leg muscles was impossible. I'm proactive with my MS and over the years seen and worked with several exercise programs, physical therapists and doctors in the U.S. as well as outside of the U.S. Unfortunately, the results were always the same. After they tried everything and my countless hours of work, their answers were always the same, that was all that could be done and NOTHING WORKED! NOTHING HELPED!!! That knee was the reason I was using adaptive devices. The reason I was so disabled. Forget the bowel, bladder, fatigue, pain, eyesight or cognitive problems of my MS that was manageable. The leg was truly disabling me. I'm sure it sounds like a little thing, but it was a mountain. I started working with David January 2019 for one year and an actual miracle happened. He broke my left knee as I refer to it. David Lyons and only David Lyons fixed my constant locked out knee. My husband, family and friends noticed and commented to me how much better I'm walking. I can walk from the kitchen to the living room and across the carpeted floor unaided. Most of all I can bend my left knee without using my hands. It's a blessing to me thanks to that Jarhead thank God for everyday. If you have MS and want to maintain your physical health or have a problem that specially MS educated and trained professionals have told you 'that's all that can be done', 'you'll just have to live with it' I'd highly recommend David Lyons as your go to guy. HE GETS RESULTS."
