David DeMesquita

Whatcha know about me? I’m David, and I’m on a mission to help people live happier healthier lives. As a competitive bodybuilding athlete with my own gut issues, I learned early on about optimizing the body internally to see external results too. My passion for hormones and autoimmune and digestive issues stemmed from family and close friends I witnessed the struggle and eventually I started helping more people while working in corporate IT positions. I officially started coaching full-time in 2021 after 6 years of coaching behind the scenes. I have been honored to work with a wide range from the general populous to professional athletes (including IFBB Pro Olympians) and everyone in between.

I got my hands on experience in women’s health when the closest women around me were experiencing hormone and thyroid issues. And it gave me the passion to learn, help and heal them as well. Now, I have used that and additional relative experience with thousands of clients to improve hypothalamic pituitary axis for healthy periods, balanced hormones, improved thyroid functionality and overall improved aesthetics and sense of well being

Over 10 years of competitive bodybuilding experience. Working directly with functional and medical doctors, mentored by some of the best in the industry including Scott Stevenson Ph.D., John Meadows, Matt Porter, Austin Stout
