Golf Strength and Conditioning Specialist
Dustin was born and raised in Spokane, WA. After graduating from Lewis and Clark High School, Dustin went on to earn his Bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science Pre-Physical Therapy and continued to pursue his passion for youth sports performance and general fitness instruction with Physical Therapy Associates (PTA). After years of mentorship with dedicated and intelligent physical therapists at PTA, Dustin continued to emulate their compassion for injured athletes and the general public. It is his desire to help others, mission to reduce the risks of injuries in young athletes, and passion for instilling confidence in each and every client that makes him who he is. As a player, a patient, a physical therapy aide, a personal trainer and strength coach, and enthusiast for helping others, Dustin’s number one goal is to make every experience at PTA Performance the best one.
Although Dustin enjoys performance training and serving others on a daily basis, his number one passion is his family. Whether it’s a long hike in Montana, a fishing trip on the lake, an outdoor pick-up game of basketball in the backyard, or playing golf, Dustin enjoys the moments spent with his wife KayLyn and his siblings most.
