What's your biggest struggle with your fitness?

    Kia Ora my name is Daniel, born in Aotearoa, New Zealand I am a Personal Trainer and Fitness Coach based in South-West London.

    I came to the UK as a professional Contemporary dancer having performed extensively throughout Europe, Asia and New Zealand.  Strength, skill and endurance have always been the foundation of my physical function.  Growing up in New Zealand I was dedicated to maintaining an active lifestyle. I have regularly trained in swimming, athletics and have competed in multiple equestrian disciplines.

    Throughout my dance training and career, I was always fascinated by the challenges and amazing physicality that the human body can endure.  The process of rehearsal, refining and performing were highly gratifying.

    As a dancer, injuries were a given; torn meniscus, pulled calf muscles and a busted shoulder to name a few. I came to realise that injuries were the body’s way of shouting and screaming “something isn’t right!”. I used those injuries to better understand how I was moving, correct it and subsequently grow stronger.

    In 2016, I found Crossfit and was immediately hooked. Constantly learning new skills and ways of moving, using my body’s power to challenge and achieve, always striving to be better than yesterday. There was a clear path of progression and this was an exciting and rewarding process.

    My passion for movement and fitness has led me to where I am today. With online clients in London and abroad and master trainer at one of London’s premiere boutique gyms 1Rebel. I love working with individuals and teaching large group classes with special emphasis on movement correction.
