My fitness journey
I was never very sporty at school, but it wasn't so much that I didn't want to be, I just had no confidence. Later I joined gyms, and gained a good fitness level. Life took over, I suffered a bad injury at work and let it all go. In my early forties, I was very unfit, very overweight, and becoming increasingly unhappy with how was. Then a couple of events made me think, I looked in the mirror and the penny dropped, I was horrified at what I saw. So I turned it around. Firstly I was encouraged back into the gym, then into a few classes, followed by some Personal Training, then later joined a running club. Confidence restored, I now take part in regular running & sports events, have several full marathons to my name, and countless other distances. I still work in the public sector, as well as building a career in the fitness industry. I am a fully qualified Personal Trainer & continue to enhance my knowledge. I love training others & watching them achieve their fitness goals. Let me help you do the same...
1-1 PERSONAL TRAINING
IT TAKES HARD WORK, BUT WORK HARD AND THOSE RESULTS WILL COME
YOU ARE BRAVER THAN YOU BELIEVE, STRONGER THAN YOU SEEM, AND SMARTER THAN YOU THINK
Darren is a brilliant PT, a great motivator and super knowledgeable. I've been seeing him regularly for the past year and have benefited significantly from his training. He has a brilliant sense of humour and there are always a few giggles between my huffing and puffing. Can't recommend enough!
Amazing session with Darren. Very professional, helpful and understanding of goals. Definitely looking forward to my next session. Highly recommended.
Great first session, looking forward to next week! Very professional and friendly.
I haven’t exercised for a while Darren has motivated me achieve results I want and need. I would recommend.
Really friendly and knowledgable and I believe he can really help me get what I want.
Just had my first session, very hard work but really enjoyed it! Looking forward to seeing improvements to my fitness over the next few months....
Darren is brilliant! Not only does he have incredible knowledge of the body and fitness but he makes everything so fun. I've been working on my core since I've had kids and no one has been able to make improvements like Darren, he's great and the best PT on the planet in my opinion - and i've tried a few!
I’ve recently come back from a weekend of walking in the Cotswolds and I wanted to share with you how much the training with you has helped me to enjoy it so much more than previously.
I did two 9+ mile walks on consecutive days and had only a small amount of muscle soreness afterwards. This is in real contrast to my usual experience of joint pain and muscle ache and fatigue - which shows me that the sessions I do with you are reaping huge dividends.
I’m sorry that I might seem like a reluctant student at times but please know that I totally appreciate the benefits I have gained from your expert tutoring.
In short, thank you.
