Sweat PT Director Darnell McGee

Darnell McGhee  -  Sweat PT Director


Born and raised in Ohio, I moved to Florida in 2008 when I got a job offer from Verizon wireless. After a few years in that industry, I decided it was time for a career change that was more rewarding, and that was when my fitness career began. I started off just doing it to better myself but quickly found out I could also benefit others. First, I started studying for my certification through NASM to become a certified personal trainer. During this time I was also a General Manager at a nationwide health club!

On April 24th 2015, I was in a horrible car accident that could have taken my life, but instead I only suffered a broken back and had to undergo spinal fusion surgery. That incident took a lot out of me, and me out of the gym, but God is good and he allowed me to pretty much make a 100% recovery! Now that I’m back in the saddle working for Sweat PT with Bailey's Health and Fitness, I’m looking to share my testimony with as many people and change as many lives as possible along the way!
