David Dellanave is a lifter, coach, and the owner of The Movement Minneapolis in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
He is one of the most well-known proponents of biofeedback training. He uses this to teach his clients to better understand the signals their bodies send them.
He’s had the pleasure of coaching a number of international level athletes as well as gen pop clients.
A few years ago, David and his friend/business partner John Romaniello, had the crazy idea of creating an even they called “Man Camp.”
Initially, construed as a bit of competition with their wives own event, John and David finally pulled the trigger and this year hosted Man Camp in Austin, Texas.
Naturally, I went to the event. You can read my take on it here.
