David’s approach to fitness and nutrition makes it easy. It is not ridged; he just gives you the tools for a healthier and more balanced lifestyle. David’s fitness and nutrition ideas and teachings have got me working towards my goals in a sustainable way.

Jerry Rogers

I would to like to inform you of how pleased I am with the excellent guidance and training I am presently receiving from David Lee. He is providing nutritional and strength training to me and I am extremely happy with his professional services.

I am a man in his mid 60s who is overweight, with a high body-fat content and weak muscles. I need a special trainer, not just any trainer, to help me achieve my goals of losing weight, strengthening muscles, having a leaner body mass and better overall health. With David I believe that I am rapidly achieving my goals due to his ability to provide balanced advice of how to achieve good nutrition while also strengthening muscles.

David’s special qualities are his ability to carefully observe one’s physical condition and then to tailor a well designed program to achieve better health. I always feel that David is protecting me from hurting myself by overexertion during exercise or by improper use of equipment. I have had many trainers in my past, but none have provided the excellent training and nutritional programs and caring attitude that David has provided to me.

I have many months to go to achieve my nutritional and strength training goals and I trust that I will be able to continue my training with David at the Snap Fitness Glebe center. I thought it was important for you to be aware of what an exceptional, skilled and caring trainer David is and what a valuable asset he is for the Snap Fitness Glebe center.

The Vital Health System has changed how I view fitness, health, and well-being. It's a complete package that has helped me transform my life. With life coaching along side the nutritional and fitness education, I have the tools to become a new and improved me.

I neglected the mental health portion of my fitness regime before meeting David Lee. Now that I have a more focused and positive mindset, I can move forward with my new lifestyle changes with confidence that I won't revert back to my old habits. This program is more than a temporary fix; it's a solution that has a permanent impact on my life from this point on.

I have always had difficulty with back pain, since I was 30 and I'm 42 now. Since starting with David, 3 months ago, I have had major improvements in core strength and have a diversified floor routine that develops muscles beyond the simple weight training I was focusing on before. I highly recommend his approach.

On August 1, 2002, my wife Sylvie and I joined the ‘Vital Health System’ practice of David Lee. My Chiropractor had referred me to David, indicating that David could provide help with my digestive problems and various joint injuries due to many years of competitive sports.

In less than five months, the benefits that I have received from the ‘Vital Health System’ have been numerous and very significant. David started me off with a 1 week ‘fast’ designed to cleanse my colon, rid my body of harmful parasites and toxins, and to improve the absorption of vital minerals and natural supplements. Once the ‘fast’ was complete, David gradually introduced the minerals and supplements, plus an organic diet. I was somewhat skeptical that the diet would have much impact due to the fact that I felt my existing diet was very healthy and well maintained. Within a week, my digestive problems started to dissipate and my energy level increased significantly. Then days after the fast, I competed in a three-hour intensive Karate event and was amazed at my energy levels and performance. As a competitive athlete, I was already in top condition and did not expect to see such gains this soon.

On September 6th, I started my new weight training programs specifically designed by David based on two weeks of assessments and ‘max tests’. David introduced me to ‘periodization’ training and I embarked on phase one of a three-phase cycle. At the end of the initial 6 week training phase, David conducted another ‘max test’ to gauge improvements in my muscle strength and muscle endurance. To my amazement, my average gains for all muscle group were in the 20-25% range. For someone who had utilized weight training as part of my athletic pursuits for over 20 years, I was thrilled with the results.

During that same six-week period, my digestive challenges further improved and my energy level continued to increase. I found that my performance as a Marital Artist was consistently higher, from both a mental and physical perspective. My results in other sports also improved across the board. I also received another ‘side’ benefit during this period. I managed to avoid getting a cold or flu that had overcome my children and several of my students, despite my constant contact with all of them. It seemed that my immune system was firing on all cylinders.

I have now completed the 2nd phase of David’s ‘periodization’ training and I have continued to adopt David’s dietary recommendations. My digestive problems and secondary issues associated with them have all but been eliminated. I have experienced a 25-30% improvement in the level of joint pain I had suffered for years due to several sports injuries and surgeries. I have added approximately 4 pounds of lean muscle mass and have increased my strength by nearly 30%, on average.

David continues to monitor my progress and is continually personalizing and adapting my diet, weight training and overall workout regimen. I fully expect to continue to see sustained improvements in all areas noted and look forward to continuing to increase my performance and feeling of wellness. Last week, David conducted an Iridology follow-up and noted that i am already experiencing healing in several areas of my body which bodes well for my long term health outlook.

I strongly recommend the ‘Vital Health System’ to any individual looking to increase their athletic performance, strength, flexibility and overall health. David Lee’s system is a wonderful natural alternative to traditional approaches and is personalized for each individual’s wants and needs. I am sure you will achieve your goals with David’s system.

Madeleine Parsons

I am 57 years of age. In July of this year, I suffered an injury which left me with excruciating pain in my left leg and hip. I could hardly function any more.

On the advice of our good chiropractor ‘Dr. Tony’, I went to see David Lee and started on the Vital Health System. To date, I have lost over 20 lbs and through stretching and exercising, I have regained most of my flexibility. I still have a long way to go but can attest to the fact that I feel better than I have in several years. I am no longer suffering from acid reflux or constipation and can go about my daily routine almost 100%.

I look forward to a better future with David Lee’s guidance and patience and am grateful to God for putting him on our path.

Mykola Konyk

I have noticed a lot of improvement during the last two months, when we restarted our training after I came back from Europe in mid-January. I went from 61.5 kg to almost 69 kg in weight, while lowering my body fat % (at the moment I am around 6-7%). I’ve noticed a lot of improvement with weight lifting, pretty much doubling and in some cases tripling the weight. I also got in the habit of working out almost every day and I came to enjoy it. I found it more than an excellent way to relieve stress. All this time I have been on nutrition program developed by David and tuned specifically for my ectomorph body type and it has been working out really well for me (judging from my results!). And finally, I also noticed improvement in my emotional state – this is another thing I learned from David, that every day can be a good day.

Luis Rivas

I have learned so much during this last Nutritional and Physical transformation. I have successfully completed the Parasite and Liver cleanses. I'll admit that they were not easy or pleasant to complete but my quality of life has improved so much, not to mention my complexion, slimmer body, increased energy and confidence. Your Vital Health System is easy and fun to follow. I can't believe how little I knew about my own body and the conventional North American diet we are tricked to follow.

I feel certain that I will be incorporating the Vital Health System into my daily lifestyle, moving forward. People are asking me what it is that I'm doing different… what's my secret? Oh and I almost forgot, I enjoy smiling a lot now too. So when I answer them and smile, I tell them that I made a decision to change my life by following your awesome program.

My favorite aspects are the proper food combining, natural enzyme through juicing and the tips/tricks on what to eat before and after workouts.

I can't thank you enough. God Bless!

Clelia DeMarinis

When I first went to see David Lee, I could not walk. I started on the treadmill less than 5 minutes and now I can do a half hour on it. My diabetes is slowly getting better. My sugar levels went from 10-14 to 6-8 points. I also went from 170 lbs to 137 lbs, a 33 lbs loss. I used to have a hard time climbing up the stairs and I now have no problem. I was losing my hair but not anymore, my hair is more healthy and thicker. David has helped a lot of people. 

Sally Crawford

I’ve been training with David Lee for 13 months. In this time, I’ve lost 66 pounds and 5 sizes. As well, I am now able to enjoy running, skiing, and hiking as a result of my new level of fitness. I am really excited about these results. When I first started training, I wasn’t optimistic. i didn’t think that I would have enough self-discipline to follow through on the program David would design for me, but I decided that it was worth trying. Soon I was realized that I was accomplishing a lot in each session. I could do more sit-ups, more push-ups, and more cardio. Before long I discovered I was able to motivate myself more between sessions, both to eat better and to exercise more. I am very happy with my new lifestyle.

Denise Riopelle

I am a 67 year old lady and I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia 3 years ago and chronic depression in 1987. In the last 3 years my legs were crippling with pain and my blood test results were showing a high level of cholesterol and I was gaining weight which brought on other ailments.

I became a member of Vital Health at the end of February 2008 and followed nutrition and workout sessions. It is amazing what these 2 months of personal physical activities and proper nutrients have done for me. I no longer have pain in my legs and I lost a lot of fat.

The Vital Health program gave me knowledge of life changing skills in nutrition and body management that will be with me for the rest of my life. This health program has given me new habits and has increased my personal discipline and mental strength.

I now have vitality and strength to lead a more active life and I am grateful for what the Vital Health System Program has done for me.

Suzanne Santyr

Picked up the Vital Health brochure at GoodLife Fitness, and was immediately intrigued by David Lee’s holistic approach – the way he addresses all of the physical, nutritional, emotional, and spiritual, connections that affect each individual’s health and well-being. Even so, it wasn’t until a full year later, that I actually decided that I was ready to make the commitment to change.

I am not what I would consider to be an athletic person, and I am very ‘involved’ in my business, my volunteer work, my daughter, my friends and my family, so I have always had a challenge ‘fitting in’ the exercise (plus did I mention I love chocolate?). As a 14 year cancer survivor, single parent and someone who has already dealt with some other rather significant challenges in my life, I realized it was ridiculous that somehow I had allowed myself to become obese, inactive and weak. My eating habits, my exercise habits, my entire way of life needed an overhaul – I knew that I needed someone to help me
kick-start’ that.

I finally picked up the phone and called David and I am very glad I did. Three months into the Vital Health program, my clothes were already starting to fall off me and I had a spring in my step again. I have now been with David for six months, and I am feeling healthier than I have in years, not to mention the fact that I have had the opportunity to meet – and ‘sweat with’ – some rally great people along the way!

After the initial weight loss, my goal was to develop habits and programs that would be sustainable. I’ve done ‘spurts’ of change in the past, but this time I wanted to learn tools and techniques that I could – and would – carry on with for the long term.

David’s program is great because, in addition to working with you on the equipment in his studio, he also teaches realistic exercises that can be done at home with minimal, inexpensive equipment. Basic floor work doesn’t have to take up great amounts of time and can be fit into your day whenever it suits you best, and a cardio program can consist of enjoyable activities that can essentially be done anytime, anywhere.

David is very motivating – he assumes that you want the body he envisions you having, even when you are not so sure you can achieve that. He’s tough when he has to be, understanding when you need it and always willing to share new information.

The most important outcome for me personally is that David has taught me that I am capable of so much more than I believe. I had been going to the gym but had never really pushed myself very hard. Now I know what a workout should feel like and I also know when I am wasting my time by just going through the motions!

I am very thankful that I chose the Vital Health program. David has helped me to put my health in order and given me the tools and training to keep it that way.

The cleansing program from Vital Health cleaned my system and prepared me to eat healthy in addition to dropping a few pounds.

I am now eating 5 times a day compared to the 2 big meals I used to eat. I feel like I have more energy now more than I’ve ever had. I’ve noticed that my asthma and allergies have improved as well since the cleansing and meal plan.

Overall after a month, I’ve dropped roughly 23 lbs, my waist decreased a few inches and I’ve noticed I look trimmer.

My cholesterol has dropped from 4.7 to 3.17. I can’t remember the last time I’ve felt this good.

Thanks David.

Over the past four year, I have been training to make Canada’s Senior Women’s National Rugby team. With little progress over the past year, I was referred to David Lee of Vital Health for some advice. Since working with David, I have notice significant gains. Not only have I gained muscle mass while losing unwanted fat, but David’s help with my diet has also been the main reason for my leaner abdominal cores, and a newfound energy which lasts throughout the day. The results were immediate and I continue to improve my overall fitness.

Frank Laplante

I started to see David Lee because a series of events forced me to take a look at my life and make some serious changes for the better. I had taken steroids for around 6 years and with that came some bad side effects like mild mood swings to the more serious visit to my doctor only for him to tell me that my chances of ever being able to have kids was less than 10%. That alone devastated me so I decided to take my health more seriously than I already was in eating properly and exercising.

David told me that doing a detoxification would help me and that juicing would help bring my natural levels back to normal. I have nothing to lose since, to me, I had already lost it all so I did this to a tee. I dotted all my ‘Is’ and crossed all my ‘Ts’. I bought it all including the Breville juicer (which is the best machine by the way). I immediately started to feel better and more energetic. My skin even looked better. I loved it. I said that I would give myself a year before I would see my doctor again to get retested but without even waiting for the year to come up my girlfriend is now 3 months and one week pregnant and we have a healthy baby o the way.

I highly recommend for anyone to listen to what the man has to say because he truly know what health is all about and he only cares about making people as healthy as they can be and why not?
