DARRICK TRUONG
Darrick attended the University of California, Davis (UCD), graduating with a degree in exercise biology in 2009. While at UCD, he played intramural sports and stayed active with strength and conditioning workouts. His philosophy involves strength and conditioning with an emphasis on perfect technique, injury prevention and sport-specific training. He utilized these techniques to train athletic and personal training clients in San Jose, Calif., before entering the internship program at UC San Diego. Darrick is currently finishing up his last semester of the Master’s program in exercise physiology at San Jose State University. In his spare time, he enjoys mountain biking, backpacking and other outdoor activities.
