Dave Slikker is Gulf War Veteran, an entrepreneur and a skilled leader. He set the bar in the early 90s with his crack-of-dawn outdoor bootcamps, that transformed over 1,000 lumpy bodies and to this day still have many Washington area Baby Boomers calling him “sir.”
In 1996, started Fitness Corps, a group boot-camp which grew to over 400 clients in locations throughout the Washington Metro area. In 2003, he sold Fitness Corps to go back to school to earn his Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology.
