I selected SolFit after doing research on a variety of personal trainers on Oahu. David’s focus on yoga and mobility, as well as fitness was exactly what I was looking for. Over the last two months of working with David 3x per week at his Pokai Bay Studio, my blood pressure is down significantly, my flexibility has dramatically improved and I am re-establishing healthy habits. He asks questions about how you are responding workout to workout and adapts the programming to best drive for the results that are important to you as the client. He is very knowledgeable and I learn something new about mobility every session. I enjoy working with him and would highly recommend SolFit.

I worked with David from SOLFIT and it was a great experience.

David was able to help me discover how to improve my workouts through many simple techniques that myself as well as my peers had entirely overlooked.

His approach to helping me reach my goals have been flexible and effective. His wide range of knowledge regarding body awareness/kinesthetic make him an excellent resource for anyone that wants to learn more about their own body and how to utilize it.

No matter if you have your own path for how you choose to work out, or if you're ready to let David show you the way, from my experience he will work with you to get the results you are looking for.

I did my research and found David. He and I spoke on the phone at length, and he offered a free evaluation to confirm that he could help me, and allow me to see if we would be compatible.
After a thorough evaluation discussing medical, where I am, and where I want to be we agreed to proceed.

With my issues David has concentrated on strength training, balance, and cardio. In a short time I have gone from struggling to get out a chair to being able to get through a 20 minute work out.
And....we are talking a very short time. I am encouraged for the first time in years, and anxiously anticipate the future when I "get my physical life back."

Thank you, David.

We started working with David in our home three times a week almost 3 months ago. We have found him to be exceptionally well trained, knowledgeable, as well as extremely kind and understanding. Following his initial assessment where he learned our medical histories, limitations, and weaknesses, he has devised workouts appropriate to our starting fitness level encompassing and stressing balance, strength, and cardiovascular development. Each workout has been different, and each slowly builds on the progress made on prior workouts. He carefully explains what each exercise is designed to achieve, and demonstrates proper techniques in performing the exercise to minimize and prevent injury. Follow up e-mails after workouts will ask whether there are any residuals such as excessive soreness, such that he should modify his next workout plan. With each session he is always very encouraging and complimentary of our efforts. In summary, he is extremely professional and thoughtful as well as highly respectful of our home environment. As retired medical professionals, we feel extremely fortunate to have him as our trainer. We already feel that in this period of time we have made significant progress in our overall physical fitness and sense of well being.

I met David as he is one of the awesome trainers at Yvette's Health and Fitness in Sarasota, FL. David stressed that with proper technique in doing the exercises, you can use much lower weights and still get the same benefits. He explained you also lower the chance of injury. David also teaches a class on flexibility and balance which has been very helpful in all aspects of my overall fitness.
David's knowledge of the body and alternative exercises for people rehabbing injuries is impressive.

I met David J Langfelder at Yvette's Health and Fitness Center over a year ago,
when he became the personal trainer for the 6:30 AM class. David has tremendous passion for fitness and it shows in every class, with the multiple exercises he designs for each class to work different muscles and parts of the body.

David's dedication to health and fitness shows in his new achievement, as
he has been recently certified as a Medical Exercise Specialist, in addition to his Personal Trainer Certification.

All around individual, dedicated to maintain and improve the quality of life of each and every one of his students.

David has many other talents, he is a musician who plays different instruments to keep the world happy. He is a world traveler and can speak Japanese. He keeps a busy schedule and the legion of students seeking his class grows from week to week

I have had pain in my shoulder for many years, but after training with Dave the past few months I have noticed less shoulder pain, greater mobility and strength.. He does a great job treating problem areas, while at the same time formulating a exercise routine that keeps me strong and healthy.. His knowledge of healthy foods and supplements adds to a well balanced personal fitness plan.. I recommend him highly as a Fitness trainer.. You will notice the improvement in your body in just a few short weeks of training with him

To those who know me...I have been training with David for awhile. As a 56 year old woman with a bad lower back and knees David has been the right person at the right time in my life. We have been doing corrective exercise. Working on strengthening my problem areas. Without his help I would not be able to function in my job without pain and enjoy the things I love. He is an incredible trainer and a very thoughtful person. I highly recommend his program. Jo Ann Atkins

So today started with a great work out at Yvette's Health & Fitness Center with our trainer David J Langfelder, we love our hour at the gym, we are benefiting greatly from various workouts we do there, ranging from cardio to strength and general fitness, every workout is different, interesting and challenging with full support and care from our trainers, you should try it sometime!! We now have a 'Gym family' where we feel comfortable and part of the team, can't wait for our next session!!

I worked out with David and friends this morning. My new favorite way to start the day. Today we focused on balance, which David hits fairly regularly. In just two month's time, I am astonished at how much my balance has improved. Which I didn't think was possible with severed ACLs, but David's knowledge of anatomy and physiology allows him to continue to astonish me with what I can do. I also have knee issues, and today David showed me how to use the stair master without pain. I can't wait to see where he shows me I can excel next!

SolFit Health and Fitness  Q&A

Company Q&A

How do you help your clients achieve their fitness goals?

1. The key to safe and effective fitness programs starts with assessment. I combine the latest in digital assessments (body fat, muscle quality and postural), advanced manual fitness assessments, and orthopedic assessments to create the perfect fitness program just for you. I also reassess your progress regularly to make sure your program is working.
2. Exercise prescription takes into account the client’s unique physiology as well as his/her goals. As a medical exercise specialist, I am able to accomodate a wide range of fitness levels and acheive positive outcomes.
3. One of the most important jobs of the personal trainer is teaching body awareness and proper exercise technique. The personal trainer is there to assist with the workout not only by motivating the client, but making sure the exercises are being performed properly, included form, speed, and breathwork. I use manual positioning as well as verbal cues designed to maximize the mind body connection and help clients to feel the correct technique instead of just mimiking an instructor. I also tell clients why they are doing the exercise in certain way and how it will benefit them and help them reach their goal.
4. Program management entails progressive modifications of a fitness program that allows for maximal growth, minimizes risk of injury and allows for continued response to exercise. Often, fitness prorams fail because the body adapts to the program and no longer responds to the exercises.
5. I have fun with my clients. I am honest with my clients and give them realistic expectations. I try to treat my clients as I would a good friend or family member.
6. I highly value my clients health and safety. Exercise is an amazing tool, but it’s not the only key to good health. That’s why I refer my clients to other medical professionals such as registered dieticians or physical therapists when appropriate. I am trained to watch for ‘red flags’ that warrant medical intervention to ensure that exercise is appropriate for my clients. I am also able to communicate effectively with my clients healthcare team in order to create safe and effective programs with the client’s best interests in mind.

What’s the secret to getting the body of your dreams?

Here’s a secret the fitness industry doesn’t want you to know: there’s no such thing as ‘the perfect body’. My job is to help each individual realize their ‘best self’ and find sustainable ways to incorporate fitness into their lives. Different people respond differently to exercise; there is no single fitness program that will work for everyone. Additionally, reaching one’s fitness goals isn’t a three-month bootcamp. It’s a total lifestyle change that should be permanent, safe and manageable. I view myself as a guide for my clients on their fitness journey and I give them the tools and tricks they will need for the ride. Each client gets my total focus and attention to help them get the best results possible. The true secret: a great body is one that is healthy, happy and allows for the individual to enjoy life to the fullest.

What do you love most about your job?

I love seeing the smile on people’s faces when they are able to enjoy life more, do things they never thought possible and feel good about themselves.

What inspired you to start your own business?

At the age of 18, I began experiencing pain and morning stiffness which worsened over time and was eventually diagnosed with ankylosing spondylitis. After my first series of x-rays I was told that I had the spine of a 60 year old man by the radiologist. As you can imagine, that was quite a shock to hear and made me feel a bit hopeless and helpless.
Fast forward 6 years. I had been to various specialists and tried many prescription medications with no benefit whatsoever. I was about to graduate from an undergraduate program in music, but my condition had worsened to the point where I could no longer pratice and perform due to the pain and stiffness in my back.
After a year on disability I began to suspect that my lifestyle choices like activity level and diet were playing a big part in my illness. I realized that instead of waiting around for a my condition to improve, I would have to make changes to my life. This is how my fitness journey began.
I have dedicated my life towards helping people find ways to improve their life through fitness. For that reason, I have earned advanced certifications like that of the medical exercise specialist which has helped me get better results for clients of various abilities and fitness levels.

Why should our clients choose you?

SolFit is the place to begin your fitness journey. Whether its starting from scratch or just starting a new chapter, we would love to help you reach your goals! Everyday is a new chance to find ways to improve your health and quality of life.
