DAVE PICARDY

CO-OWNER, HEAD OF BIZ & COACH DEVELOPMENT

After a short stint in the Army and a career in the office furniture industry, Coach Dave finally settled into the fitness industry as a personal trainer. He brought with him years of martial arts training and an understanding from the army of real world fitness. It did not take very long to realize the current fitness industry model of building lean muscle and burning calories was way off base. After reading two journals from Greg Glassman (What is Fitness & Foundations) everything changed.

MAX COFFIN

COACH

I am a Danvers native and have been training at Treehouse School of Fitness for 7 years. I fully believe and love every part of this community. Trying to convey how much this has taught me and changed my life would be like explaining a color to someone who has never seen one, it has to be experienced. I have always had a fascination with the human body and it’s potential as well as a love for people. It is the training and community that has made such an impact in my life that I have decided to make a career at helping others.
