Would you choose a doctor or dentist or chiropractor or physical therapist who did not complete the required professional education and pass the examinations required to receive a license to practice, and, who doesn't complete the required professional continuing education to maintain that license to practice?
Those same professional standards should be applied when choosing personal/athletic trainers and group exercise instructors.
Choose fitness professionals who have valued and taken the time, effort and expense to complete the professional education and have passed the required examinations from a nationally recognized certifying organization for certification to practice, and, who value and take the time, effort and expense to complete annual continuing education required to maintain that certification.

Please take note of the following:
If your desire is to live in Well-Being, then engage in healthy living on a daily basis
and as much as possible and appropriate, avoid medicines and medically oriented care
David Robinson DC
Personal Fitness Trainer
A native of New Bedford and the South Coast, when first learning about chiropractic as an undergrad (Bridgewater State College, B.S., Biology, 1982), David developed a passion for chiropractic's focus on well being and natural approach to health care that recognizes and works with the body's innate intelligence.
He earned his D.C. degree from Life University, School of Chiropractic in 1988 and has been licensed as chiropractor in Massachusetts since 1989.
David is one of the extremely small number of chiropractors world wide who have the ability to perform gentle, vertebra-specific adjusting by hand, never using forceful or random spinal adjusting, adjusting with table parts that drop or move, adjusting with instruments, or general manipulation.
David's 30 years experience as a chiropractor include a general private practice in New Bedford, practices in Plymouth and Peabody Massachusetts which were strictly chiropractic wellness practices, working as a staff chiropractor in a Boston practice, and a strictly chiropractic wellness house calls practice serving parts of New Bedford and Dartmouth Massachusetts.
Seven years into private practice, having been active in daily fitness for more than 15 years, David earned national certification as a Personal Fitness Trainer through the Athletics & Fitness Assoc. of America, Sherman Oaks California. At the time, AFAA was only one of two nationally accredited certifying organizations to require candidates to complete classroom and practical training, as well as successfully complete practical testing in addition to written testing.
David also received a Certified Reiki I Practitioner, from Master Instructor Donna Carr of Salem MA in 2001.
David has more than 23 years experience as a personal trainer, including private clients for in-home and on-site personal training, as an independent contractor out of fitness centers in Plymouth and Pembroke, Massachusetts, for the Massachusetts Criminal Justice Training Council’s police cadet physical training program, at fitness clubs in San Diego and Solana Beach, California, and at the Newport County (Rhode Island) YMCA.
