Coaches

Danny holds a bachelor’s degree in Exercise Physiology from West Chester University. He has worked in the fitness field for over 20 years as a trainer, coach and a PT in an outpatient clinic dealing with sports injuries, pre/post-surgery rehab and movement dysfunction. During this time, Danny has broadened his skills and knowledge to better serve the people he has helped and trained. His experience in both fitness and rehabilitation settings has provided opportunities to serve clients with a wide range of progressive training.

As a six year member of the Delaware State Beach Patrol, he was instrumental in designing the fitness program for all lifeguards on the Ocean Rescue Team. During his 10 year tenure as a wrestling coach for Salesianum School, Danny worked with athletes in achieving their competitive goals including individual state championships and Division 1 wrestling scholarships. That experience afforded him a greater understanding of the dedication, discipline, and satisfaction of achievement. Danny is grateful to have the opportunity to share his knowledge with the members he works with at CoreTen.

Joe has been a certified Level 1 CrossFit Trainer since 2014. Before graduating from Juniata College, he was able to work with the NCAA National Strength & Conditioning Coach of the Year in 2015 for a 5 month period. Through this, Joe gained knowledge that can be applied to all age groups and fitness levels to improve performance and functionality.

Joe’s love of fitness and weight training stems from playing 16 years of competitive baseball in youth leagues, high school and college. “I am not the most talented athlete so I had to outwork everyone off of the field if I wanted a spot on the field. I became a gym rat and quickly fell in love with the sweat and soreness after a workout.” The passion Joe has for his own fitness has grown into a new passion, which is helping other people to achieve their fitness goals. He loves working with like-minded people who are not scared to give their full effort in the gym.

My favorite part about working at CoreTen is:
The motivating environment created by all of the members who work hard every day. It challenges me to be the best coach I can be to help improve their fitness and quality of life.

Hobbies:
I love to travel. Italy is my favorite place in the world but probably because that’s the only place outside of the U.S. I’ve been. I’m a washed up college baseball player but I still enjoy watching the Phillies if they’re winning or playing a softball game every once in a while.

Certifications:
CrossFit Level 1
