84 year old Nell
At the age of 16, I began
lifting weights and have continued for 36 years. During that time, I added
running for cardiovascular health and have been doing that for 21 years.
In 1997, I completed my first
marathon and since then I have finished numerous marathons and ultra marathons.
After running 5 Boston Marathons
(2000-2004), I moved on to ultras where I have completed race distances
from 50 to
135 miles (no sleep) but
the Badwater 135 is my favorite, said to be the toughest footrace on the
planet. The race is held in July at Death Valley where temperatures can
reach 130 degrees. Only 90 are invited from around the world. I finished
15th overall in 2006 and 10th in 2008.
Not bad for a guy that in
his twenties could not run a quarter mile without getting out of breath!
This gives me incredible hope for anyone who has the desire and will to
I accepted the challenge of working with Dave Horner as my personal trainer,
I entered into an experience where I continue to receive more than I ever
anticipated. He has provided a carefully balanced program of building strength,
endurance, and safety in an atmosphere of encouragement and trust.
In just a few weeks of training he has brought me to a level of physical
activity beyond what I ever envisioned for myself, including running for
miles several times a week. Dave’s knowledge and application of anatomy,
physiology and kinesiology is outstanding. He is motivating, compassionate
and a true friend.
recommend Dave Horner as a personal trainer to provide help and hope
in achieving a healthy lifestyle.

Using static compression and
other advanced bodywork techniches, I am able to work with the nervous
suystem to unlock restricted areas, bringing the body into a more balanced
state. This gives me the ability to train someone with less efort on their
part, thus producing efficiency in movement.
Taking someone through a set
of movement screens helps me to pick out weak links in that particular
movement pattern, address them by exaggerating the mistake, and correct
the faulty pattern through newly established neurological pathways.
