Daniel Wait (2023 – Present)
Ariana Madix and Daniel Wai, a fitness trainer, were first linked in April 2023 when Ariana posted photos and videos of them together at Coachella. “She is allowed to date whoever she wants and was having an amazing time at Coachella with Daniel,” a source told Us Weekly at the time. “She’s definitely open to seeing where things go with Daniel, but at the same time, Ariana isn’t totally ready to jump into a serious relationship.”
Ariana broke her silence on her relationship with Daniel in an interview with Watch What Happens Live in May 2023. “I’ll just say that I am very happy and very satisfied,” she said.
That same month, Ariana revealed how she and Daniel met in an interview on the Today show. “I met him at a wedding about ten days after all of this. And in no way, shape or form did I go into that thinking anything,” she said. “I have just been taking things very, very slow and really enjoying myself. And it’s just really lovely to interact with someone who is just so nice and kind and lovely and caring.”
Daniel is a professional fitness trainer. “I have been a trainer for the past decade and it has been one of the most fulfilling and humbling experiences,” his website, DanielWaiFitness.com, reads. “However my interest in physical health and conditioning has been with me since I was 13 years old. As a typical teenager I was insecure with my size and strength and decided to incorporate exercise and physical fitness into my life and it has been a large part of my life ever since.”
On his website, Daniel revealed that he quit his full-time job to become a fitness trainer in 2022 and that hasn’t “looked back” ever since. “Now that I feel I have found my passion and purpose I specialize in fitness and lifestyle changes catered to each client’s goals and needs,” his about page reads. “Whether its sport specific, overall fitness, or attaining a specific body build I enjoy helping those to achieve those goals in the most enjoyable and creative way possible. I want to continue to be able to help inspire others to be healthy, happy, and perform overall at a higher standard in life.”
Daniel continued, “Today, I feel I have found my true calling and that is specializing in fitness and exercise that matches a client’s goals, needs, and expectations. Whether it is sport specific, overall fitness, or in attaining a specific body type I will be able to help you achieve your goals in an enjoyable and creative atmosphere. through positive inspiration so that you can live a healthier, happier and energetic life.”
