He developed an interest in fitness in 2000 while on a personal journey for overall good health. Ditanyon discovered he had a knack for training others while helping his college roommate lose over 40 lbs in 3 months. The overwhelming boost of self-confidence and energy he witnessed in his college friend inspired him to pursue his passion to help others achieve similar successes.
Upon achieving his first certifications in nutrition and physical training through ISSA he began to develop his own brand of training at Gold’s Gym, and in client’s homes throughout New York City. His move to California in 2006 brought him to Sherman Oaks California where as a sports model he has appeared in numerous commercials, videos and magazines like Muscle and Fitness and FLEX Magazine.

His client roster includes people from every walk of life, from Hollywood stars like The Hasselhoffs, Valerie Bertinelli, Peter Walsh, Candice Michelle and Peter Reckell, to Top Dance Choreographers like Brian Friedman as well as professional athletes, stay at home moms. and busy working people. He has appeared in magazines like Closer weekly, People magazine, Men’s Health, Voyage LA Magazine and Muscle and Fitness
in addition to being the first trainer on the summer fitness series on E!NEWS.
Ditanyon credits his success to his three-step approach to fitness of Mind, Nutrition and Constantly Varied Exercise.
- The first step in the TRU FIT PROGRAM is to work on the mind as the body follows the mind and so we must first fix the mind before starting any action towards success.
- Then Nutrition. As “You can’t out work a bad diet” So putting nutrition before exercise is vital in not wasting valuable hours in the gym only to ruin them at lunch and dinner.
- Ditanyon’s final approach is Constantly Varied Exercise as dull repetitive programs not only cause fitness plateaus but also become less exciting and engaging over time due to the monotony.
Ditanyon is certified with APEX, the National Federation of Professional Trainers (NFPT), The American Council on Exercise as a lifestyle and weight management consultant (ACE), and National Council on Strength and Fitness (NCSF) International Sports Science Association (ISSA) and has a Level 1&2 Trainer Certificate in CrossFit.
