About Decara Burgess

My name is Decara Burgess. I am the founder and owner of Body By Burgess Fitness Training. I am an IFPA, AAAI – ISMA certified personal trainer located in the heart of South Philadelphia.  I have been extremely active in the health and fitness industry for over 20 years. Throughout this time, I have accumulated endless amounts of knowledge in the health field. This could be attributed to classroom instruction, certification training, and, most importantly, life experiences. From an early age, I was taught to take of my body so that it would take care of me. As an ex-football player I was fortunate enough to experience high school, college, and minor league levels of play. Participating with various NFL, Area, and Canadian football teams made it necessary to be in top physical condition. With a strong spiritual background and intricate focus on solid nutritional and strength conditioning, I strongly promote healthy living. Since the tender age of 15, I have had the
opportunity to benefit from the expertise of a personal trainer. These tremendous results have influenced me to pass this on to others. I desire to share my passion for fitness with you. Our mission here at Body By Burge is to provide the highest quality of service to each and every client in areas of fitness programming, stress management, nutritional counseling, and overall well being.
