WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

I’ve known Darius for almost a decade. I don’t know any other trainer in Dallas that has as much diversity in their resume. He fought professionally, has taught cycling and also competed successfully in a plethora of other sports. He brings all that knowledge together with his training. He is always  creating new challenges for all his clients. He is simply one of the best in Dallas.

I started training with Darius a few months before getting pregnant with my second child. He kept me fit throughout my pregnancy. Now, 9 months after giving birth, I am stronger and more confident in my body than I ever was before having children. Darius is a fabulous trainer. His creative style keeps you motivated and inspired.

The thing that stands out to me about Darius is his discipline and work ethic. He he constantly working on being better and making those he comes into contact with better. Whether that be in the gym or in the community. His attention to detail during workouts let’s you know he’s engaged in mastering his craft and making his clients the best they can be.

Darius is the best and most knowledgable trainer I have ever had. He is the master of knowing his clients’ needs and consistently challenging them. I am sore in a good way every single time! But what sets him apart from the rest is the fact that he is pure sunshine. When he walks into a room, you can feel his positive energy and happy vibes. He truly loves what he does and his passion shows. He’s so encouraging and fun to be around! I highly recommend him for anyone needing a fitness coach and friend.

There is only one word I can use when describing Darius Yancy, and that word is Passion.  When I first started working with him, he hadn’t really coached anyone before, but he had the number one thing every good coach has…A passion for fitness.  That passion drove him to become certified, and to soak up all he could from fitness mentors and experts.  He also has a passion to better himself, and it is that passion that continually drives him to grow personally as an athlete, a trainer, and a person.  But probably the strongest driving force in what makes Darius an amazing, effective trainer, is his passion for life.  Darius loves life and he loves helping people, and that shines through in every aspect of his life.  The combination of all of this passion is what makes him unbeatable at what he does.

I’ve been working with Darius for several years now and he is truly the best in the business. A lot of the training is highly technical, but Darius is able to show the “how” and communicate the “why” of more complex techniques. He is one of the most uplifting and high-energy people to be around, and he has helped me gain confidence both inside the gym and in life in general.  The training is intense but reasonable…and it helps to gain perspective in life.  That desk job will not seem nearly as hard after your morning session of blocking head kicks and sprawling to defend takedowns.

Sebastian does an AMAZING job of blending sports performance and general fitness training into a quick session – that above all is fun and encouraging!  He listens to his clients and builds customized programming to help them achieve their goals. He brings a TON of positive energy to his sessions and is a master at throwing new challenges to his clients. Always a fun experience. Always a rewarding workout. Never a dull moment.Sebastian is truly gifted at what he does and he really cares about the health and well-being of his clients.

I have been working out with Darius Yancey for a little over five years now. We first met at CROWBAR Fitness where he was a cardio-class instructor. His classes were always the most popular. In addition to attending his classes I soon began working with Darius as my personal trainer and the relationship has continued. We currently work out together twice weekly and each session is designed with a specific purpose, whether it be cardio, strength training, balance and flexibility, or a combination of all. Darius is congenial, encouraging and enthusiastic. We workout in various venues from health clubs and gyms to city parks and also at my home. Lately we have been doing tele-workouts via Instagram. The workouts are fun and challenging and tailored specifically to what I need to work on. Darius is not only my personal trainer but I am happy to call him my good friend. I highly recommend him to anyone wishing to start or continue a fitness regimen.

Darius is more than just a trainer, he’s a great friend too. He’s my supporter, motivator, peace of mind at times (especially when we are fighting like sisters, literally). He sees people needs beyond just fitness, he cares about their personal and emotional well being too. He becomes fully invested in you as a person and wants to help make you the best version of yourself in every way possible. He pushes you when you feel like giving up and cheers for you in the slightest accomplishment. He’s one of my favorite people and feel lucky to know him!

Alexis Euart
Working out with Darius has easily become one of the best parts of my day. When I first came to Darius my overall goal was to learn something new and stay in shape. Learning something new can be intimidating and challenging. However, I always feel comfortable and motivated to be better. Darius has that personable energy that motivates you in all aspects. I love his workouts and I can honestly say they have made a difference in my everyday life.
Ariana Faulkner, Operations manager

I have always wanted to try boxing and I’m so glad I found Darius.  He breaks down the moves so precise so that I may really understand and reach my full potential. He really does care so much about his work and the people around him. Good vibes all around which makes for a super fun experience. I cannot help but smile. His workouts really help me stay focused and provide me with the mental clarity that I need. Definitely a great way to start to my busy work day!

Lia Faulkner, Solar Energy Consultant

Darius is incredible! Hands down the best decision I have ever made for my health/fitness! He met me at my level when I was out of shape in the beginning, and then helped me far exceed my weight loss/body transformation goals. I’ve never felt better or looked more fit in my entire life. I got better results training 2 days/wk with him than I did with any other trainer/group class/fitness app. He really knows his stuff and always creates different workouts so it never was repetitive and he made the time fly by. He is also the most kind, positive, and motivating person I have ever met which made me actually look forward to going to train every time! Can’t say enough good things!

Kim Rogers

I don’t even know where to start on my praise for Sebastian Yancy.  Sometimes people JUST HAVE IT! Some trainers can be knowledgeable.  Some trainers can be personable.  Some trainers can just make it fun, and enjoyable.  Sebastian is the total package…he is all of these things! We used him for years at our corporate facility, doing anything from boxing boot camps to outdoor runs and weight training in our gym.  He always knew how to bring high energy, enthusiasm, and creativity to our workouts.  As a former trainer myself, I know how hard the work is and I know how hard it is to be consistent and passionate everyday.  Sebastian never wavers, and I can’t say enough good things about the man.  Hire him now!

Kyle Rhodes

I have trained with Sebastian Yancy for approximately a year now (on and off because I travel for work). As an ex-athlete, I have had many trainers and coaches over the years for; football, basketball, strength-training and conditioning, but I will be honest by saying working with Sebastian has been my favorite and where I have been able to notice the most growth in myself; mentally and physically. Sebastian has a way of not just pushing you to give more because you do have it in yourself, but by bring out the best quality of effort out of you. Historically, I was always just an athlete that wanted to go as hard and physical as possible. While Sebastian still has to remind me to relax and slow down (often daily and multiple times), he has shown me where my routine weaknesses are in the fast pasted efforts and how the smallest of movements hinders my Gainz progress. But he does not just bring out the best in you from a boxing or strength-training perspective, he always takes the time to notice when you aren’t yourself and is not afraid to ask of what is wrong and to council. There’s been many times, I have wanted to say ‘screw it’ or ‘fuck this!’ to Sebastian, but I never have and will never. When I first started with him, I was in a dark place and without knowing it, his training sessions have put me back together to be my best version of me. I will forever thank, appreciate, and respect this man. God Bless – Colossians 3:23-24

In the short time I’ve spent with Coach, I’ve learned to tune out the negative self-imposed thoughts that weighed heavy on my shoulders. Coach enabled and empowered my confidence, mental toughness, and grit. Women are often looked at as frail and weak, but Coach puts all of that to rest by pushing his female clients to the max and beyond. I can’t thank him enough for what he’s done for me mentally, and ultimately emotionally and spiritually. The post-session talks and smiles are always the icing on the cake in tuning in to my purpose and intention for the day and/or week. Many thanks to the best dedicated Coach out there!

Bethany Pacheco, Technical account manager, Microsoft
Darius has the unique ability to create a workout program tailored to your individual needs, coupled with motivation that you won’t find elsewhere. He pushed me (and my sister) to step outside our comfort zones which led to newfound strength and continued progress. He is professional yet approachable. His attitude is infectious and makes you want to wake up and put in the work — all with a smile on your face. Darius is someone you want in your corner, and I’m grateful to have the opportunity to train with him.
Cari Daniell
I met Sebastian about a year ago doing what I’ve come to find out is his passion working out with limited equipment outside. We spoke and he invited me to come workout with him at fortis MMA and give boxing a try. I’ve never wanted to be a fighter but was interested in the new workout. The first day was a challenge and let’s just say that first jab needed a lot of work. Sebastian has been patient and encouraging throughout this journey. While challenging me and catering to the deficits and highlighting my strengths. I have gained confidence in my striking and improved my physical and mental wellness while training with coach. I’m thankful for knowing a great coach and better human being. 
Jecarey Knight
Darius helped pull me out of a 5 year boxing hiatus in just a few sessions. His commitment to incorporating the fundamentals with a little bit of fun make for an effective workout every time. I have a hectic schedule so maximizing each session was important to me. There are many trainers out there but if you’re looking for a trainer who is dedicated to his family, great causes, and improving the lives of his clients, don’t look any further!
Christiana Yebra
I started training with Sebastian in 2017 when I was pregnant, and it was the best decision of my pregnancy.  I felt strong and confident throughout the process even though I was rapidly gaining the baby weight.  My body bounced back so fast and I am 100% certain it is from the muscle memory Sebastian help me build.  I cannot recommend him enough.  He is knowledgable, professional, patient, and above all a friend.
