My name is DaMarr Easton. I have been a Certified Trainer and coach for more than 20 years. Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, I am a former High School and college athlete. Having a love for fitness and sports performance is a great understatement for me. I am a sports enthusiast.
Having been in the best shape and the worst shape of my life, I understand the importance of having a solid foundation to work from. Being that guide or helper of many to reach and become the best versions of themselves has been my greatest desire.
Creating a fun and challenging atmosphere, welcoming all that come into Monkey Bar to experience the passion for life and well being. That’s my mission…..
