What's your biggest struggle with your fitness?
I started training with Daniel a few months ago, after developing back and knee pain as a result of both working and training at home. After completing a movement assessment and discussing what I wanted from our sessions, we started working on building my core strength, improving my form and some conditioning. Daniel is a great trainer and I cant recommend him enough. Both the 1 on 1 and coaching sessions are completely designed to meet my goals and they evolve based on my progress. Initially I was a little skeptical as to how effective training via Zoom could be but after just a few months I feel stronger, fitter and have much better form (with simple exercises I've been doing for years). I've had other trainers before, and where Daniel differs is that he asks how I am feeling at the start of each session so he can make any required adjustments accordingly. He also tailors my offline workouts to fit around whatever other activities I plan to do. On top of all that he's a genuinely lovely person and I really enjoy training with him.
Dan is an incredible trainer and in the three months I've been doing online coaching with him I've seen huge improvements. Despite having spent the last few months in lockdown, I feel stronger and fitter than I did before! Dan is an extremely attentive and caring coach who has helped me safely work through an injury, and takes time curating tailored and varied workouts suited to my goals. Dan is not only an motivational trainer but he's also an all round lovely guy, and his method of coaching is both supportive and encouraging. Dan has taught me that focusing on form and mobility are just as (if not more) effective than killing myself on a treadmill, and as a result I have seen some serious progress which has changed my attitude and approach to fitness. I would recommend Dan to anyone, whatever your level of fitness.
I’ve been training with Daniel for around 2 years, both attending his classes at 1Rebel and most recently online programming. As a marathon runner, my aim has been to increase my speed, endurance and overall strength to achieve my running goals. In the time I have been training with Daniel, I have seen all my times from 5k through to full marathon improve dramatically, most notable knocking over 20 minutes off my marathon time and qualifying for the Boston Marathon. The variety in his workouts and focus on quality posture and techniques mean that I have increased my strength, endurance and ability to run at my threshold speed for much longer. I would highly recommend Daniel to anyone look for a PT who is supportive, kind, knowledgeable and motivating. He makes me want to work hard, become better, and has helped me achieve goals I could only ever dream of.

Daniel has been training me for three years in which time, all areas of my fitness have been completely transformed. I am stronger, and leaner than I was in my twenties, and I’m nearly forty! Daniel’s the perfect hybrid of motivation, inspiration and loveliness. Tough when you slack, proud when you work, supportive when it’s tough. Training with Daniel has overhauled my attitude to excising and surpassed my expectations in achieving results.
I’ve seen remarkable, tangible life-changing fitness results training with Daniel in the last year. I, without a doubt, owe this to his knowledgeable coaching, motivation and (strict) method of instruction — he expects your best when training but exceeds in delivering.

Daniel is a coach that listens to my goals, observes what I need to improve on and uses them both to curate a program that’s so effective it just keeps me wanting to train. He is an excellent coach and his knowledge and care are why as a Trainer myself I am constantly grateful to him.

I started with Daniel in January this year to improve my skill set, get stronger, more functional and to have someone to hold me accountable and push me. Daniel’s coaching is the right amount of everything. The programming is balanced and structured, he checks in, he answers all and any questions and you can tell he really cares about the progress you make. Would recommend to anyone, best investment in myself I’ve ever made!
