1. I was a semi-professional Rugby player for 6 years, representing the south west of England, playing across France, Ireland and Dubai.

2. Originally from the UK, I had a quarter-life crisis at 25, sold everything, bought a one-way ticket to Australia and never looked back.

3. I competed in Strongman at 100kg body weight, squatting 150kg for 23 reps, 200kg deadlift for 15 reps and 100kg bench for 18 reps, coming 1st place in the south west of England.



“I’ve been training with Dave for over two years now. When I started this journey I wanted to lose some weight, feel healthier in myself, I hated the idea of the gym and to be honest it was quite daunting. My first session with Dave I told him I was a former athlete and I didn’t want to get on the scales. It was about how I was feeling, I’m sure that drove him nuts, however that’s what I loved about working with Dave, he built the sessions around me and never once pushed me to get on the scales and make me feel uncomfortable.

Dave doesn’t just clock on and clock off at the end of the sessions, you can tell he actually loves what he does and inspires you to want to create life changing habits. I never thought after two years I’d still be doing two sessions a week with a trainer after losing 30kgs weight in my first year with him, the sessions are fun and still challenge me and I never thought I’d get back to being upside down and doing some old gymnastics moves I did back in my younger days.”


“Dave has been a great mentor since day one. He supported my lows and highs and taught me how consistency is key. His knowledge is clearly tangible in my results. I didn’t expect to be in the best shape of my life at 36 and I can’t wait to see what’s next.”


“I never would have considered half the food I’m now willing to eat. I’m now finding myself always going for the healthy option and trying new meals when I go out. I’ve found a love for fitness that I didn’t know I could have. I find my programs enjoyable, and it’s been rewarding to form new healthy habits such as meal prep, tracking my sleep, food and calories, and reaching my daily step goal.”
