My company LifeUP delivers comprehensive, experiential programs that deliver the ‘a-ha’ moments that transform the wellness of companies, leaving their employees looking, feeling, and performing their very best.

Derek is a corporate wellness coach and lifestyle expert who supports employees to experience the fulfillment of their potential so that their companies save money and build a flourishing culture of all-in-one turnkey premium service.

His company LifeUP’s Healthy Habits for the Busy Business program is a transformational, research-backed, comprehensive curriculum delivered in-person, online, or in a hybrid framework.

Derek is a decorated athlete, all-natural physique competitor, and Fortune 500 speaker who never forgets he was just a middle-class kid with a big head, bad haircut, and bad skin until he discovered health is a choice to make every single day. He acknowledges and speaks to the inner nerd in all of us.

Derek is based in LA, California, and is available for speaking events across the US, global and virtual summits, podcasts, and interviews.

"When health is absent, wisdom cannot reveal itself, art cannot manifest, strength cannot fight, wealth becomes useless, and intelligence cannot be applied.”
