Derek Decater is the owner of Decater Performance just outside
of Seattle, Washington. Known for his comprehensive approach
to adult fat loss bootcamps and his expertise in training baseball
players, Derek is a performance coach sought after in the Greater
Seattle area.
Derek earned his bachelor’s degree in physiology from the University of Arizona’s
School of Medicine while also playing for the Wildcat Baseball Program. Derek went
on to earn his CSCS from the National Strength and Conditioning Association and
began training soon after graduation. After taking a position as Wellness Director at a
local physical therapy clinic, Derek made the decision to take what he learned in the
physical therapy field and start applying it to performance training.
Derek’s science-driven fat loss bootcamps are quickly becoming the model for those
in the industry. Having combined his expertise in Russian kettlebell training, TRX
training, injury prevention and corrective exercise, nutrition, metabolic training and
strength training, Derek’s bootcamps have consistently produced results all while
staying in-line with his most core belief, that training should not only be about fat
loss but about improving health and function. Always mindful that not all exercises
are right for all people at all times, Derek’s bootcamps are always adapting, from
member to member, from class to class, so that everyone walks away feeling better,
looking better and most importantly – educated on exercise and nutrition.
Athletes at all levels have gravitated towards Derek’s approach to performance training.
Derek has proven that strength, power and performance can all be achieved
while maintaining an emphasis on total body function and injury prevention. His athletes
not only gain strength and power, but also reduce their risk of injury.
Whether coming to Derek for fat loss or athletics, clients soon see the difference
between working out and training.
