With a strong focus on movement protocols for overall efficiency, Coach Atlas is armed with the kettlebell as his specific weapon of choice to optimize human development.

He has traveled to performance seminars attended by clinicians, physical therapists and chiropractors all over the nation. Excelling beyond the realms of personal training, he furthered his career by focusing his expertise in the assessment and programming aspects in order to meet the individual needs of his clients.

Coach Atlas & Coach Dani (formally nicknamed "Hurricane" since 2016) have known each other for over a decade.  "Being able to bring Ausar on board here at The Compound is something I have wanted since the day we opened the doors here, he is the best addition to our team and I can't wait to implement his craft here with our crew!" - DK

Coach Atlas' Motto:

"LONG LIVE THE COMPOUND!"

"Hello, Good Morning"

Creator and Founder of The Compound, Dani Cann- now Kermizian, is the inspiration behind the brand and our new expansion.  Her nickname around these parts is "head hancho" but really she just thrives off of being in a good-vibe-filled environment with her awesome crew. {Speaking of THRIVE- check out that class, its like being stuck inside her head for 45 minutes - eek}.  A graduate with a business degree she spent over 10 years in the corporate fashion industry but her true passion lies in fitness, health & wellness. She holds multiple fitness certifications from Yoga Teacher Training 200Hr, TRX and several indoor cycling certifications including training and teaching at the elite Flywheel Sports in NYC.  Now, her brain child, The Compound in Verona NJ, is her new home.

DK's Motto:

"The best things happen when you're not looking"

The Compound's token "best smile around" high-energy head trainer, Chris Lee is a staple around these parts and our crew wouldn't be the same without him.  Holding a BS in Exercise Physiology with a minor in Nutrition, he later interned at St. Joseph's Hospital working with cardiac patients. He has extensive experience in post-physical therapy and specializes in overweight/obesity.  With over 15 years of experience, his programming methods provide extensive knowledge and motivation (not just by looking at those pearly whites), so that every client, no matter what their initial health status is, can reach the highest level of healthy lifestyle goals.
