Donnie has been working in the fitness industry since 2011.

Prior to entering the fitness industry, Donnie served in the United States Marine Corps as a Combat Engineer where his main duty was to locate Improvised Explosive Devices used by enemy combatants. After suffering several concussions and thoracic spinal injuries in combat operations, Donnie found refuge in exercise and mastering the art of human movement.


Donnie holds a A.A. and a B.S. in Psychology from Southeastern Community College and Campbell University, respectively. Additionally, he holds certifications with the National Academy of Sports Medicine, the International Sports Sciences Association, and is a CrossFit Level One Trainer. Donnie is also the owner of AMA Fitness, an independent personal training and consulting company, and teaches for the Early College Program at Southeastern Community College here in Whiteville, North Carolina.


Moreover, Donnie also volunteers with the International Disaster Response Agency Team Rubicon during times of national disaster and is a member of the Veteran Organization Team Red, White, and Blue. Most recently, he worked in an operation with Team Rubicon in Clay County Florida in the aftermath of Hurricane Irma.  Donnie enjoys spending time with his wonderful wife of 7 years, his two children, and the family pets at their home in Lake Waccamaw.
