David Dragula

Personal Trainer

Though formally educated as a Certified Personal Fitness Instructor by the International Sports Science Association, David has derived much of his training style from his years as an instructor in the US Marine Corps. He custom designs each workout to individual needs, with an emphasis on full body exertion, resulting in total body development. Despite his generally disarming demeanor, unless you are fully committed to being driven to work harder than you thought possible, and in so achieving results you did not think were possible, then David is not the trainer for you.

Tyler Figueroa

Personal Trainer

Specialties: TRX & Group Fitness Training

Certifications/Qualifications:NCSF (National Council on Strength and Fitness) Personal Trainer Certification

Bio: I joined the IXL team Feb of 2018 and have been a Certified trainer since May of 2017. I studied Exercise Science and Wellness at Dutchess Community College and have been weight training since high school. In Feb of 2015, I joined the Army National Guard and went through vigorous training which was both physically and mentally challenging. Last year I tore my ACL and had to go through a whole different type of training to recover. Both of these life experiences taught me that whether I was pushing my body to its breaking point or trying to regain the ability to walk normally, dedication and hard work were the only way I was going to see progress. I look forward to passing my knowledge on to others and inspire them to become the best they can be.
