David Walker Clapp


Phone: 971-219-0919

David began his pursuit toward health and wellness in 1979. Overcoming childhood illnesses made him discover his passion for simply feeling good and strong.  After earning his Bachelors Degree (1987) in Exercise Physiology and Athletic Training, David’s career quickly became highly diverse.  He was a Group Exercise Instructor all through college and a Physical Therapy Intern immediataly after college.  He was also the Head Athletic Trainer for a professional soccer team (NY/NJ Eagles) and an assistant Athletic Trainer and Strength Coach at Pace University. Additionally, David was a college professor of Exercise Science.

David started his first personal training business, All American Fitness, Inc, in 1989.  In 1998, David moved to the Pacific Northwest and decided to take a hiatus from his fitness career to pursue sales.  David did quite well, becoming a top-producing sales rep in the entire Northwest.  David also went from being a 175 lbs triathlete to a 230 lbs sales executive.  That’s correct – David became a stress eater and got FAT!  David also understands how to break the bad habits and attitudes that lead to ill health.  In 2002, David returned to Fitness Training and rediscovered his passion for health and fitness.

In 2004, David started his second personal training business, SUCK IT UP Fitness, Inc. He also organized and lead a highly successful Boot Camp training for 12 consecutive years. David appeared on the reality television show ‘Little People, Big World’ as the Fitness Trainer for Amy and Zach Roloff. In 2016, David started his third personal training business, PEAK Personal Training, LLC.  David also speaks regularly on a variety of topics to many local schools and businesses.
