Dean is a Southern California boy, born and raised in North Hollywood, CA. Dean has always been a fitness enthusiast, from weight training and boxing to yoga and cycling – he has pretty much tried it all. At the University of California, Santa Barbara, he was on the rowing team, and often rode informally with the Cycling team on their 50-mile plus training sessions. Dean discovered the Lagree Method in 2008, and became instantly addicted. In 2009, Dean began opening studios with his wife, Lisa. Bringing the gift of health to so many people is incredibly satisfying. When he is not teaching classes between San Diego and San Francisco, Dean loves travel adventures and spending time with his beautiful wife and daughter.
