Training with me

Training with me can be done in 1 of 3 ways: In…


A friend recommended Dave to me and I have to say that when I first started training I was a bit skeptical, but 6 months later I am still training and determined to continue as the results have been amazing!

He’s got a great attitude – really positive and encouraging and motivates me to work hard.

Having trained for almost 30 years I was getting stuck with injuries and a general lack of mobility. I needed something to get me out of the rut.
I had a chat with Dave to arrange a block of sessions and the progression has been fantastic. I have been given a new and fresh perspective on training – combining heavy lifts with bespoke exercises to develop my mobility.
The guidance that Dave has provided and the programme prescribed has really been transformational and will hopefully extend my ability to train well and effectively into middle age.
I really am very grateful to you Dave both for your time and input and getting me to look at training and exercise in a different way.
Best regards

I have found my time with Dave very beneficial so far and continue to make steady progress. He even helped me train around an ankle injury and continued to help me progress while it recovered.

His vast knowledge, encouragement and flexible programming attitude are much appreciated and come highly recommended
