Lead Fitness and Nutrition Writer

A diet and fitness enthusiast, David Williams is an ex-Army Airborne Ranger and Infantry soldier with decades of fitness, nutrition, and wellness experience. A West Point graduate with a degree in engineering, he focuses on technical research related to fitness, nutrition, and wellness.

A natural endomorph (higher body fat), he has experimented with many diets and juice plans over the years, so his opinions and positions are rooted in real world experience, not just theory.

From his experience in the U.S. Army (Infantry), he gained an appreciation for all forms of workouts and fitness: gym, home, dumbbell, cable, calisthenics, bodyweight, cardio, sports fitness, field fitness, and more. He brings this diverse background of experience to the content at A Lean Life.

He loves the beach and working out, and spending time with his wife and daughters.
