Dark Horse Performance

Hello!  My name is Brandon Gainey and I've been actively pursuing fitness for a number of years through various training styles including general weight training, strong man training, and athletic training.  As a former walk on basketball player at East Carolina University, I always value work ethic, teamwork, and health.  I have experienced many different aspects of fitness and nutritional approaches to become a better version of myself.  I've been through all the "trends" and "gimmicks".  I've been healthy and I've been injured.  I've enjoyed some friendly competition and I've completed for cash prizes.  I have a wide perspective of the fitness industry as a whole.  I have worked to serve the community and those in need and I would really enjoy the opportunity to encourage, motivate, and walk along side you on your fitness journey.  Whether that includes health maintenance, strength training, or weight loss.


Personal training - Initial Assessment FREE!  $40 per session.

Small Group Training  Focusing on strength training and conditioning $10 per class

Nutritional Coaching/Services also available.
