Hannah Davis, certified strength and conditioning specialist (CSCS), will always be a coastal Carolinian at heart. Born and raised in North Carolina, Hannah first fell in love with weight training in high school when she was just 17. She was a cheerleader, ran cross-country, and played soccer - but nothing fascinated her quite as much as weight training. She graduated from UNC-Greensboro with a degree in drama and left to chase her acting dreams in New York City.
After a couple daytime drama TV appearances and a few stage gigs, she started working at a talent agency. Trapped behind a desk and the politics of the industry, Hannah found herself suffering from "real world" anxiety that was no longer being managed by daily trips to the gym - her meditative time. A year into working with the agency, she had a eureka moment when she decided she wanted to be doing something with her life that would improve someone else's quality of life. There was one thing she knew she was really good at - understanding the roles of exercise and nutrition in achieving complete wellness. She left her desk job and enrolled in the Academy of Personal Training in NYC, where she graduated at the top of her class.
Hannah's many certifications enable her to work with clients who are training for weight loss, muscle hypertrophy, corrective exercise, specific sport, and pre/post natal. She has worked with children, athletes, young professionals and the elderly. She is experienced with addressing a variety of limitations that clients may have. Her background in nutrition also adds a strong component to creating a more complete training program.
Hannah served as the fitness expert on the advisory board for Cosmopolitan Magazine and has contributed to publications and books including Women's Health Magazine, Cosmopolitan, SELF, Yahoo Health, and the Rodale-published book, Shape Up Shortcuts. She has appeared on NYC's Fox 5 and NY 1.
She founded Gotham Versatile Training, a personal training company in NYC which encourages a community of trainees who want to meet and compete with fellow members. Gotham VT works with only the best trainers in the industry.
Currently, Hannah lives in Cleveland, TN where she trains privately in her studio located in downtown Cleveland.

“As the editor of a magazine that centers around health and fitness, I’d thought I’d seen it all. But with her creative, modern approach to training, Hannah introduced me to new, inspired moves – ones that are as effective as they are innovative!”
- Michelle Promaulayko // Former Editor-In-Chief of Women's Health Magazine and current Yahoo Health Online Editor-In-Chief

"Hannah has been my personal trainer for over 3 years . I work out twice a week with her . She’s terrific. She tailors each workout to my needs. I recently had a back issue. I still got a great workout each week since she tailored my workouts around my problem. I’m the type of person who gets very bored with exercise. But my workouts with Hannah are always creative and motivating. She’s also very knowledgeable in nutrition. Hannah is my personal trainer but she has also become a personal friend . I would recommend her to anyone needing a trainer . She really cares about her clients. Hannah is the best!!!"

“Thanks for helping me change my life.”
- Jeffery Zeldman // Founder and Executive Creative Director of Happy Cog™
"I found Hannah after I returned from a vacation and refused to post pictures to Facebook. I wasn’t in terrible shape, but I wanted to be my best self and I didn’t know how. Upon our first meeting, I knew Hannah was right for me and we have been working out together for the past year and six months. I have achieved my goals because of Hannah’s patience and constant (day or night) motivation. She has helped me integrate fitness and good nutrition into a busy life of business dinners and Italian holidays. She commits to me as much as I commit to her and it keeps me on my desired path daily; not just during our weekly sessions. I feel better about myself today than I ever did because of Hannah’s support."
- Maria DeRuccio
"Hannah has really made a difference for me. This is the longest I’ve stuck with any kind of workout, and it’s because she trains the whole person and lifestyle. In the past when I’ve worked with different trainers, it seemed like they just gave me exercises and reps, but Hannah’s program is focused and works on my individual goals and challenges. She has had me accomplishing small victories all along the way. She has really helped me to step out of my comfort zone and made fitness fun and rewarding! I’ve been very surprised to find that I actually look forward to training and working hard, which is a total game-changer. I recently took part in a fitness charity event with my husband, something I never would have had the confidence to do before training with Hannah. She’s helped me find inner and outer strength I didn’t know I had. Thanks Gotham VT!"
- Maria DeVries
