“RAW fitness helped me achieve the highest level of fitness I’ve ever seen. Danny is a master trainer and he always took time to help me identify where my problems were so I could maximize my achievements.”

“If you want the motivation of working out in a group, but also the benefits of individual feedback, look no further. The workouts can be modified for any ability and fitness level. And if you want one-one-one training, they have that too!”

Laura B.

“Raw Fitness is worth 10 stars. We didn’t know what to do with our son’s weight gain, but Danny Iniguez’ program of fitness, nutrition, and good rapport turned everything around. After 130 pounds lost, our son lost his sleep apnea, is no longer obese, looks terrific and is a lifeguard this summer.”

Blessed to be in the field of health and wellness

Danny Iniguez, owner & trainer

“As a sedentary and obese middle schooler, I found strength training in our local small-town gym. I made going to the gym after school with my friends a routine and used it to build strength and a confidence to do things I never thought I was capable of. This led to playing football in high school- one of the best experiences of my life.

Working out and playing sports gave me a healthier and more balanced life. Unfortunately, knee surgery that resulted from an injury playing football plagued me with hip and back problems, keeping me from exercising and being as active as I had been.  After high school, my injury, along with an unhealthy lifestyle that consisted of overeating, binge drinking, and being sedentary, led to massive weight gain. For years I was in denial of my obesity until the day I found myself weighing 267 pounds at 5’9”. It was at that point I knew I had to change my life.

Learning as much as I could, I found the right combination of nutrition and exercise that helped me get in even better shape than I had been in high school. This newfound knowledge and experience inspired me to become a Personal Trainer and pursue an education in Applied Health Sciences at the University of Illinois. I focused on Interdisciplinary Health with a concentration in behavior change- a curriculum that goes beyond physical health and looks emotional, mental, spiritual health and wellness, and how it affects people’s actions and approach to their well-being.

Overcoming depression, food addiction, and improving mental focus are just some of the amazing changes I’ve experienced after becoming healthier, physically. I have seen first-hand how adopting a health-conscious outlook improved every aspect of my life, and I hope to share that experience with as many people as I can as a health professional. It was through years of education, experience, trial, and lots of errors of my own that I have been able to develop the knowledge base to help the people that I have, without selling them promises or products. Everyone has their own personal journey with unique barriers. My goal is to help as many people as I can along theirs.”
