David is a fully qualified and experienced Yoga teacher, certified through Zenways on their 200-hour Yoga Alliance-registered course. He combines this with years of his own experience from personal training, rehabilitation work and competing in sports, to create a teaching style that he has refined over more than a decade. His style of teaching is fluid, and not merely a set series of exercises, patterns or postures. It is his firm belief that no two human beings are the same, and as such no one set of movements will be perfectly beneficial for all students. David works with each student on a personal level in order to ensure you are getting the best, most effective, tailored service to improve your life and continue your development in the optimum way.
Whether your goal is weight loss, muscle gain, fat reduction or increased sporting performance – these sessions are perfect for you. Each session is carefully tailored to the individual based around the questions asked at the initial consultation, fitness assessments, functional movement tests and more, and can include a large variety of equipment such as kettlebells, focus mitts, resistance bands, dumbbells, step, agility ladder and clubs. There really is something to suit everyone!
These sessions can take place in your home, in a gym, outside, or even over Skype! I have coached hundreds of people online, so if you do not live in the same city (or even country) as I do, it is not a problem!
Please contact me for more details, and for a FREE consultation in which we can discuss collectively how best to achieve your goals.

Lower Back Pain Sessions – Many people are plagued with lower back pain and a look at the following statistics shows how serious this epidemic is :
‘Treating all types of back pain costs the NHS more than £1000 million per year. In 1998 the direct healthcare costs of all back pain in the UK were estimated at £1623 million – approximately 35% of costs were related to services provided by the private sector. The costs of care for LBP exceed £500 million/year’ – http://www.nice.org.uk – NATIONAL INSTITUTE FOR HEALTH AND CLINICAL EXCELLENCE
With years of experience working with the people from the young up to 102 years old (during my time in Japan), as well as a Level 4 specialist qualification in Lower Back Pain management, I have the skills and knowledge to help you with your condition.
Nutrition consultations include a breakdown of the macronutrient content of the foods you eat, as well as working out your basal metabolic rate, how many calories you should be consuming to reach your goals, and much more.

The primary focus of these sessions is to educate and empower you to make your healthy diet a daily habit, as opposed to a quick fix. Includes both nutrition for sport and exercise and nutrition for weight management.
