Don is not only my personal trainer but my friend, Don gave me the belief and confidence to push forward in my life. Without Don teaching me and pushing me even when I didn't think I could keep going, I'm not sure what I would have done!
The training sessions are good fun. Don has a very positive attitude - and that really helps to keep me motivated. He is great at suggesting a wide variety of exercises to help with what I need and adapts his exercises so that each session has the right level of challenge.
Don helped me to actually enjoy exercise! I was exercising really inefficiently before I started working with Don, but I now know how to get maximum benefit from a shorter work out. His sessions are super hard work but really fun!
Training with Don is the full PT package: he's dedicated, organised and motivating (he's even funny!). And his approach works, I noticed real body changes in 2 weeks. He mixes up the sessions to keep you constantly on your toes and knows how to push you further than you think you can go.
Don makes my training routine exciting and varied, adapting the exercises to my specific needs, I would not hesitate in recommending him to others.
I think one of the most important things is that Don is genuinely a nice person and always goes beyond what you expect of him. He has also helped me out with a plan for home exercises so I can continue to improve outside of our sessions. I have noticed a huge difference in my upper body strength. Thanks Don!
I've been training with Don for over 8 months now and he has been incredibly attentive working closely with my physiotherapist to help fix an underlying knee and hip issue. He is encouraging, without being patronising and empathetic, whilst still being motivating. With his help I have now been able to establish a clear exercise routine for the first time in my life!
Don took time to understand my goals pushed me to do better, at the start of summer I could only do press ups on my knees but by the end of it I was able to do proper press ups!
Don took me on at my lowest point straight from rehab. He is technical, demanding and uncompromising - exactly what I needed. With good humour, kindness and a lot of patience he pushed me through targets that I thought were unachievable in just 8 months. Then he set new ones. Forever grateful
Brilliant. Fun, just the right kind of tough and my strength, fitness and energy levels improved really quickly, I would recommend him to anyone.
I worked with Don for 8 months and had a great experience as each session comprised a mix of strength, cardio and core exercises. I managed to really improve my boxing technique and loved getting some boxing combos going!
Don helped me work on techniques to support my programme of Yoga and Pilates. He is a great coach and has a really nice way of explain what you need to do. He took the time to do a detailed follow up and I’ve used the programme, even through lock down.
Don made sure that everything he included in my workout routine took into account my back injury from a car accident, so I built upon exercises from my physio and added some new ones without aggravating this injury. He also took into account the limited time I had to exercise daily, so that I could manage the workout realistically.
Don is very friendly, knowledgeable and not at all intimidating, so you feel you can be honest about what you can and cannot do without him judging you. I would certainly recommend using Don to anyone who wants to improve their fitness.
Don was professional, friendly and approachable. The training he devised was tailored to me and allowed for increased complexity and circuits as I increased my strength and stamina. For anyone really wanting to change their routine and see results, Don would be a great person to go to!
Don was able to devise a specific program to my goals and delivered a truly personal program. His easy going manner allows you to be quickly at ease. I would definitely recommend him.
Don was so helpful in preparing a tailored program for me to use. He was very kind, put me at ease straightaway and was nothing but encouraging. He expertly showed me how to do all the exercises. It was amazing to be shown how to properly do a sit up after all these years of doing them wrong! I have been able to build on the program that Don provided and can carry out the exercises at home as well as in the gym. I would highly recommend Don to anyone.
Thank you so much Don for introducing me to this whole new world of exercise and making me realise that there is nothing stopping me from getting fit.
I can honestly say I have never felt fitter and healthier and happy with my new body!
Doing workout sessions with Don, I've improved my strength, endurance, form and flexibility. My workouts are online, Don motivates and challenges me every time. I feel like I'm in an actual class, since he's attentive and helps me make adjustments to my form. I thank Don for getting me into better shape!! Highly recommend Don.
