  • David's collaborative working with Silvia the nutritional therapist rapidly increased my body composition goal progress. When I started training with David in mid November I weighed 59kg with 32.32% body fat. Over the following three months my body fat steadily reduced around 1% per month to 28.78%. I started working with Silvia on 23rd February and within 6 weeks achieved a body fat reduction of almost 3%, similar to what I achieved during the previous 3 months. My weight dropped from 59.5kg to 54kg and my body fat was down to 25.94%.

  • "I approached Silvia because I am a runner and wanted to train for a marathon. I had never previously prepared properly regarding my diet and so wanted to remedy that this time. I was looking for advice on what to eat, when and which supplements to take to accompany them. Silvia certainly delivered, giving me a fully rounded nutritional plan that was clear to follow and easy to implement. I have not felt so energised for years and this has really helped my training and my well-being in general."
    A.M. – Middle Aged Male in his 40’s
  • “Thank you Doug. It’s been a journey. You were absolutely instrumental in maintaining my psychological health and wellbeing during my sporting times.”
    Shavaun Henry, Runner
  • "David has been a great help and I can’t thank him enough for helping me with my weight loss goals (3 stone by Christmas) and shaping goals.  Training is never boring and he always communicated it in such a way that I knew why we were doing it - it wasn't a case of just do this! - more like do this because this is how it fits into the bigger picture and meets my goals, which I must say we met before I expected! I would strongly recommend him to anyone who is unsure of their fitness as I was but doesn't want to hit the gym alone. As a motivator and a trainer I hold him in high regard" Goals: Has lost 3 stone and 4 inches of his waist over the course of 4 months
    Peter, 45 years old
  • "If you need someone to motivate you, give you confidence and show you how to reach your personal fitness goals I can’t praise David highly enough. He is extremely flexible and will endeavour to work round you, however busy or disorganised your daily schedule may be. 6.30am was never too early to exercise. We have used a variety of techniques to help improve my stamina, shape and power, David has also helped me come back from injury using rehabilitation techniques from foam rollers to nutritional approaches."
    Emma, 29 years old
    Marathon Runner
  • "As a 38 year old beginner, David had to start with the absolute basics. He quickly got to grips with not only what I enjoyed, but also the best techniques and exercises to strengthen a previous back injury and to lose weight. David's accurate, technical approach and knowledge are second to none and he's also a really great guy. Whatever your goals, I would thoroughly recommend working with him."
  • "David introduced me to a functional way of training to benefit me in completing my first even triathlon.  David produced a plan that was specific to all three of the discipline areas and got me ready to compete.  The type of programmes David produces are different to standard ways and involve a variety of methods to ensure you maintain focus and motivation throughout."
    Footballer and Triathlete
  • "I first met with David in October 2013 after having been tricked into signing up for an Ironman Triathlon which would be at the end of July 2014. Over the course of 4 months David transformed my body from a “cyclists physique” which had no strength whatsoever from the waist upwards, into a strong all round physique which could cope with the rigours and fatigue of a 12+ hour event. David gave me tailored weight lifting and core strengthening programs to follow as well as food plans and nutritional advice. I started the training period weighing 72kg with approx. 14% body fat and completed the training period weighing 65-66Kg with less than 10% body fat. As a benchmark indicator, on my first session with David I was unable to do a single pull-up starting from a straight-arm hang but by the end I could do 4 sets of 10. Every session was well structured and was designed to move me along a path to reach my ultimate goal. I found that there was a lot of 2 way communication, if there was ever something I was uncomfortable with or unsure about David would listen to my concerns and adapt if necessary. I highly recommend David as a personal trainer."
