Who is Dan Rémi

Dan Rémi profile picture

I’m an online plant-based fitness coach who quit his full time medical doctor gig to prevent people from becoming patients in the first place.

I’m the guy they come to when they want to end their frustrations, and gain clarity over how to achieve their health & fitness goals  - and keep it for life. No diet fads & "quick fixes" in this household.

I help them create a tailored flexible routine towards their goals that they can sustain even when life gets in the way, so they can sustainably lose the fat, build muscle & feel amazing on plants.

As a medical doctor, CrossFit athlete (transformed from very skinny), and after having coached hundreds 1-on-1 towards health & fitness independence since 2014, I have created a unique adaptable coaching system that gets people results every time.
