Founder and Head Trainer
Daris Wilson, certified personal trainer, is the creator & head trainer of women fitness programs JCF Boot Camp and Diapers & Dumbbells.
Daris Wilson is a fitness enthusiast and New Orleans native making “fitness a way of life” since the tender age of 5 when he started playing team sports. That active lifestyle eventually lead him to earning an athletic scholarship to Bucknell University where he was a 4-year letterman, an all-conference performer, most valuable player, and the University’s male athlete of the year. Daris also owns several school and conference football records. His experience of training, which lead to the mentioned successes, included sports conditioning training, core conditioning, speed endurance training, strength training, power lifting, agility & quickness, performance enhancement training, plyometrics, weight training, pilates, yoga, boxing, and speed training.
Daris graduated from Bucknell University in May 2005 with a BS in Accounting. Following graduation, Daris returned home to New Orleans, Louisiana, only to migrate back north after the devastation of Hurricane Katrina in August 2005. In November 2005, Daris landed a job as an Investigation Analyst at the New York Stock Exchange. He later became unfulfilled and unmotivated by the “redundancy and politics” of corporate America.
In August 2008, Daris started JCF Boot Camp on a part-time basis. JCF gave women an alternative to the traditional gym-setting where the bulky equipment could be intimidating. It also gave women an encouraging workout environment built on camaraderie, accountability, and support. JCF Boot Camp has since become the #1 women’s fitness boot camp in Hudson County (NJ). The reception of JCF by it’s raving fans allowed Daris to leave corporate America behind in March 2010.
Later in 2010, Daris launched Diapers & Dumbbells – a stroller exercise program dedicated to the fitness needs of new mothers allowing them to workout without leaving their baby behind. D&D empower women to “reclaim your body, bond with your baby, and renew your beauty.”
Daris continues to sharpen his skill set and lives by JCF Core Value, “get better daily,” by attending seminars, workshops, and continued education courses. He has also studied and learned from industry leaders like Todd Durkin of Fitness Quest 10, who is internationally recognized performance-enhancement coach. Daris added nutrition credentials to his fitness arsenal by earning his SCW Sports Nutrition certification.
Being a part of JCF Boot Camp and working with Daris, you will become part of the elite that knows how to take care of her body and take control of her life through exercise and nutrition.
