Arthur McDaniels



In 2006 Arthur came to Philadelphia from Newark, NJ seeking recovery from drug addiction. He entered a recovery program and begin striving toward a new life in a new place. After graduating from an outpatient treatment program, Arthur’s life seemed to be on the right track, but then a few years later, he found himself back in the homeless shelter system. It was during that time, he learned about Subversus’ program, UliftU and the opportunity to learn how to become a coach in the fitness industry. As someone who always worked out and loving to help people he knew this was his future. After completing the UliftU program, Arthur now coaches at Subversus and you’ll see his smile behind the front desk. Arthur also coaches free fitness classes in North Philadelphia, three nights a week for those at risk of chronic disease at no cost. “That is the most fulfilling part of what I do. I look forward to doing more in the community. ULIFTU and coaching has changed my life for the better. I am on a continuous course of personal development. A career path that allows me to help others do the same. I am loving this life.”
