I love seeing people build their strength, agility and vitality. My ideal day is helping people move with greater confidence and joy.

David is an excellent personal trainer. His sessions are huge fun and the variety of exercises we do have improved my strength, flexibility and my body feels completely different. He is very professional, and he has years of experience working to achieve any goals you will have. David’s knowledge of the body and movement is very impressive, he is also very friendly and really helps you feel to motivated to improve your skills.
Whether you are looking for a PT to help get you back on track or kick-start your fitness journey, or whether you are interested in a more functional & "natural" way of training, David & the Fitness Renaissance team have you covered! Both myself & my partner have had extremely positive experiences in both one-to-one & group-based environments & can't recommend them highly enough. An hour or two spent on one of their functional group training sessions is not only challenging & engaging but it's also incredibly informative & will leave you looking at your training in an entirely new light. Give it a go!!
I have worked with David for nearly three years and still loving it! He is really good at being both supportive and challenging. He brings new ideas to our sessions quite often from his own learning and self-development and makes them relevant to me. I am much fitter and stronger than I was three years' ago and looking forward to the next three years.
I have had a few personal trainers in the past but David really did take it to the next level. Very professional and made it easy for me to understand, not only how to do it in the right way, but why we were doing a particular routine. I also felt that he provided me with all the tools and skills I needed to then continue on my own, however the ongoing motivation, support and measurement was invaluable.
I trained with David for several months to help prepare me for a skiing trip. David was patient and considered, ensuring I focussed on the right program to develop my strength in line with my specific needs. I was totally at ease with him and trusted his advice and guidance.
