The Starting Strength Coach Credential is the Most Advanced in the Industry

Daniel Buege, SSC
Head Coach

Daniel was introduced to Starting Strength by his father in his early teens when he shared a copy of Starting Strength: Basic Barbell Training with him. However, it wouldn’t be until much later that he actually read the book and started applying the method. Seeing results for himself and watching other testimonials convinced him that Starting Strength was the most efficient and effective method of strength training. After discovering that there were coaching opportunities, he decided to attend a Starting Strength Seminar in Wichita Falls, Texas, and pursue a career in coaching. In March of 2022, Daniel took the next big step to achieve this goal by moving from South Dakota to Houston, Texas, for the opportunity to apprentice under the guidance of Starting Strength coaches Josh Wells, Tony Stein, and JD Shipley.  Daniel is eager to apply what he has learned by helping the future members of Starting Strength Miami achieve their strength and overall fitness goals as our coach.

“Starting Strength has not only has not only helped me become physically stronger than I have ever been but has also been an integral part of my development as an individual. The mental approach of adding 5 pounds to the barbell not only works in the gym, but it also works with any difficult task I approach in life.”
