Our Trainers

Danny Palmer _Everett Club

Hello! I’m Danny and I’m an ACE certified personal trainer from Mill Creek, WA. Since the age of 12 I struggled with being extremely overweight and living a consistently unhealthy lifestyle. I fell in love with the ability to change my body through nutrition and exercise after my first time in a gym. Currently I’m continuing to train for strength and hypertrophy while keeping the fat off. After studying nutrition and exercise for multiple years I began to enjoy all aspects of it. As a trainer my goals are to educate and bring others to success in their own fitness goals as efficiently as possible. The success my clients have made are ranging from 8-16 pounds of fat loss or up to 4-10 pounds of muscle (LBM) within their first month. My style of training will vary by person but can expect a mix of circuits, free-weights and machines.

Yousif Al-Azzawi _Everett Club

My name is Yousif Al-Azzawi. I was born in 1993 in Baghdad. Between the ages of 12-16 I was overweight, unconfident, and  really shy. After that time period I made the decision to change and lock down my new personal goals that I had mind.  I reached the goals and then within 2 years I started as a personal trainer to change people’s lives, just like I changed my own. I absolutely love helping other people get into shape, get stronger, and gain self worth and confidence. Fun fact about me: I play flamenco guitar.

Ian Branham _Everett Club

I’m Ian, a Personal Trainer from Arlington WA. What initially sparked my love for Fitness was growing up in a family surrounded by martial-arts. Everyone involved in that aspect of my life was constantly working out, training and sparing 5-6 days a week always pushing themselves to be better.

As far as my own fitness goals, I train to simply be better than I was the day before. We all have room to grow no matter how far we have come, so I never set any other goal than to compete with myself. It is that same mentality I strive to instill in each of my clients because once you stop competing with others, take your mind off the negative aspects of where you currently are and only focus on bettering yourself everyday.. then you have no choice but to progress. Along the way there will be learning curves to overcome, and that is where I come in. Educating people with both lots of experience and zero experience to progress safely and efficiently. I take the “Personal” part of Personal Trainer very seriously. By taking time to thoroughly dial in on my client’s goals, state of mind, and what drives them, I’m able to offer the accountability people need in order to continue pursuing their goals even when the want to give up. This has allowed my clients to not only drop the fat and stack the muscle, but also to create a healthier state of mind as well. Don’t worry about where you are, focus on where you want to be and together, we will get you there.

Brandon James _Everett Club

I am originally from Gig harbor Washington. I got into fitness through my athletic career. I saw the amazing results I was able to achieve in my own training thanks to an awesome coach I wanted to be able to pass that on to all the clients I see whether it be weight loss, muscle gain or athletic performance.

My current fitness goals are to get back below 10% body fat and maintain strength and mobility to slay on the golf course. My training style changes depending on the client I’m working with. I have a lot of experience with injury rehab/prevention and athletic performance. My goal when training is to generate the best results in the shortest amount of time possible and having a kick-ass time along the way.

Ryan Andrews _Everett club

Hi! I’m Ryan. I’m a NASM certified personal trainer and I love training here at ECA. I was born and raised in Tucson, AZ where I spent my days playing soccer, hiking, and playing music (my other passion). I grew up as a chubby kid who lacked  confidence. As I got older I educated myself on the importance of proper nutrition and exercise and immediately fell in love with fitness. I love helping others realize their full potential and helping them to reach their own personal fitness goals.
Interesting fact: Call of duty and pickle ball are life.

Davonn Brumfield _Everett Club

My name is Davonn and I am from Vallejo, California. I Played college football at Midwestern State University and my love for athletics led me into the fitness world. My style of training emphasizes trust, consistency, motivation and accountability! I put the “person” when in personal training!  I enjoy using my personality to inspire, encourage, and equip others to reach their full potential.

Andre Jordan _Everett Club

My name is Andre Jordan, I grew up in Washington and began playing all kinds of sports at the age of 4. I found my favorite sport which I went on to play for 10 years being soccer. I began to lift weights in middle school, with very little knowledge or guidance. I would watch YouTube videos and read magazines and just pick the hardest workout thinking that would generate the best results. After falling into a twisted time of life of a few years in drugs I found my new love of fitness through high intense functional training. It was the best training philosophy I had found to challenge myself and stay out of trouble. As I fell more in love with seeing the results in my own body, I began to spend my time truly understanding strength progressions, metabolic pathways and body mechanics. I pride myself and my clients on moving with purpose and function. The core focus of all the training plans I implement revolve around getting stronger through pressing, pulling and squatting, individualizing hypertrophy work around weakness and touching different metabolic pathways on a weekly basis. I use functional strength and conditioning principles to help the body adapt and grow to help you become the most well-rounded, fit individual you can be.

DJ _Everett Club

My name is Dustin Blair and i was born and raised right here in Washington. I was lucky enough to get introduced to fitness at a young age playing sports with my brother and started weight training senior year of high school when my dad got me my first bench press. Once you see results is when it becomes addicting and i have been lifting ever since. I would say that i don’t have any specific fitness goals for myself. I believe you have to be satisfied with never being satisfied when it comes to fitness. The style of training that i practice is strictly strength progression using mostly free weights.

I’m all about working smarter and not harder when it comes to getting someone to their goal. Food is by far the most overlooked aspect in fitness where i know everyone struggles but finding the perfect diet for your specific body type is the key to getting in shape –that with a proper/consistent lifting regimen and you’re golden. That’s where i come in!
