"For the past 8 years I've been working with Darci continuously, and her rigorous fitness program is the best of the best. She knows her craft as a leading fitness expert in Hollywood, and that is why my husband and I call her The Darcinator!"

- Salma Hayek

"I have been fortunate enough in the last 25 years to be exposed to many of the best trainers in the country and without any doubt Darci is one of them. Darci brings to every session the best version of herself. Physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. Working with Darci is a total transformation on every level."


“Darci is so much more than a trainer, she’s a true healer. She is very present, pays close attention to my body and structure as I’m working out and tailors the exercise accordingly to my body type and physical challenges/ailments I may have. She makes the workouts fun, productive and effective. She is a diamond in the rough and takes pride in her professionalism. I highly recommend her to anyone who wants a serious minded trainer but also wants to enjoy the exercise as well!”

"Darci has been an incredibly important figure in my life. I came to her eight years ago, after I hadn't worked out in decades. I'd been a professional tennis player, and I'd retired with major injuries 34 years before, plus I had terrible emotional problems. It was quite a surprise to both of us that soon after we met for the first time, I burst out crying. Slowly and carefully, Darci helped me pick up the pieces. When I could barely bend, she said, "We'll look back at this moment and remember where you began." When my knee was largely non-responsive, she gently suggested I get an appointment with a surgeon, and voila! I got a partial knee replacement. At every step of the way, Darci has encouraged me, while never, ever pushing beyond what was best for my body or my mind. The upshot is that my life is better, and once again I feel proud of my muscles."


"14 years together! Even grandmothers need Darci."


"Darci has been my trainer for the past three years. She inspires me not to think of myself in terms age, 71, but rather in terms of the possibilities of life, being healthy, strong and energetic. She is always helpful and kind and figuring out new ways to make our workouts interesting. She brings positive energy into my home whenever she comes over. She is undoubtedly the best trainer in Los Angeles."
