What sets Proactive Fitness apart from other fitness centers or gyms?

ProActive Fitness is a private fitness studio located at 4427 Frontenac Drive in Beavercreek, Ohio. First of all, you have exclusive use of the equipment and the individualized attention of your trainer during your training session, therefore, no sharing or waiting to use any of the equipment, and no outside distractions to hinder your workout. I strive to create a comfortable non-intimidating environment where you learn to exercise safely and effectively.

The variety of exercise equipment offers a unique exercise setting. At Proactive Fitness you will find equipment that is NOT found in the typical fitness center or gym. Equipment such as the TRX® SUSPENSION TRAINING®system, TRX®RIP® trainer, kettlebells, VIPR™s, medicine balls, stability balls, Core-Tex™reactive trainer, BOSU® balance trainer, Total Gym®GTS Power Tower™ and other equipment that is used to help you regain and improve your  posture, muscular strength and endurance, balance and stability, flexibility and joint range of motion, aerobic conditioning, rotational power, and other aspects of your health and fitness.

We are geared to help you move as best you can so you feel better and you perform better. Of course, this doesn’t happen just because of the equipment – a knowledgeable and experienced fitness professional is essential to provide the guidance you need.


What qualifications and experience does the fitness professional have?

I am David Hannan, the owner of ProActive Fitness. I have twenty years of experience in the health and fitness industry. I am certified by the American Council on Exercise® (ACE®) as an Advanced Health & Fitness Specialist, Personal Trainer, and Health Coach. In addition, I am a member of TRX®CORE and a TRX® SUSPENSION TRAINING® qualified trainer (yellow rank).

My approach to exercise and fitness is to guide and support you toward an active lifestyle that supports your health and your personal leisure interests. I base my approach on the ACE Integrated Fitness Training® (ACE IFT®) Model. The ACE IFT® Model combines assessments and programming into a systematic and comprehensive approach towards exercise programming and behavioral change. It provides a solid foundation for positive  behavioral change and help you regain and improve your posture, movement, muscular strength and endurance,flexibility,balance and other aspects of fitness. Working within the ACE IFT® Model, we work together for your success.


What I believe about exercise, health, and fitness.

I believe exercise and being active are essential to good health and well-being. It goes beyond being able to run longer or faster, jumping higher, and being stronger, exercise positively influences our bodies and brains in many different ways. In a nutshell, we function better when we exercise on a regular basis and we also lower our risks for some diseases and premature death.

I believe exercise can be difficult but with professional guidance and with small consistent changes it becomes easier over time. Making exercise a part of your lifestyle is a journey not a destination. The “rewards” of better health and well-being make the journey worthwhile.

Our mindset, how we think about and the associations we make with exercise greatly impact our long-term success. Turning a negative mindset (exercise takes too much time, energy, willpower, etc.) into a positive outlook (exercise gives me better health, improves my mood, increases my energy level, and adds positively to my life) is essential to make the change to an active lifestyle. Positive thoughts guide positive actions and behaviors.

I don’t believe exercise is a cure-all but the numerous benefits for our health and well-being are certainly undeniable. I believe virtually anyone and everyone (yes, there are some exceptions) can and will benefit from exercise as long as any  and all limitations are considered.

I believe most people can experience long-term success with the guidance and support of a caring and knowledgeable fitness professional.
