So who am I and why should you listen to me?

Hi I'm Dan Pope,

​I have a doctorate in physical therapy, am an orthopedic clinical specialist and a certified strength and conditioning specialist.

I also have over 10 years of experience as a personal trainer and coach.

I've competed as a Division 1 athlete at Rutgers University as a polevaulter, won a state and national championship in the sport of strongman and have competed twice at the crossfit regionals.​

I travel and speak internationally on the topics of rehabilitation and injury prevention.

I've worked with athletes from all levels ranging from your average Joe and Jane up to the professional, olympic and crossfit games level athlete.  


Most importantly, helping others with training and rehabilitation is what I've devoted my life toward.  It is absolutely my passion.  That's why I feel strongly that I'll be able to help you!

This unique blend of rehabilitation, coaching and training experience gives me a special ability to help people reach their fitness goals without wrecking their bodies in the process.


So Who is this Program For?

  • You are motivated and willing to put the work in to get results
  • You have basic weight training experience 
  • You want a program designed with equal emphasis toward long term health AND results

So Who is this Program NOT For?

  • You don't have the required equipment to properly utilize the program
  • You have very little weight training experience 
  • You have a current injury and haven't been cleared by your doctor to start training yet

So What's the Cost?

If you're anything like me your whole world is being flipped upside down right now due to COVID 19.  I know a message from me isn't much but hang in there I know we'll get through this and we'll be better on the other side.

I wanted to help out the fitness community because I know this is a tough time for most.  Gyms are shut down all over the world.  Finances are tight and when the income will start coming back in again is unknown.  It's really a pretty scary time...

For all of the aforementioned reasons I'm currently granting a $1 trial membership for the 1st month of the training program.

Giving you super cheap access to this training program feels like 1 small thing I can do to help out.  I figure it's the least I can do to help out with all of the turmoil around the world. 

Garage Gym Heroes is a 12 month long training program.  After the first month you'll be billed $29.99 monthly over the course of 12 months.  Every 30 days you'll get access to a new training program.   You can cancel at any time to stop payments.  

Become a Garage Gym Hero,
