Level 3 Diploma Personal Trainer
Dan has been practising as a level 3 qualified Personal Trainer for over 8 years in a variety of different facilities and locations ranging from well-equipped commercial gyms through to sessions with minimal equipment outdoors.
He enjoys working with small groups but finds the best results come from focussed one to one sessions, across all ranges of fitness, from introducing the basics of resistance training to beginners through to planning periodised programmes for performance athletes.
He places huge importance on posture and structural balance. Making clients look great but also function and move well is key ; focussing on making clients stronger and more mobile underpins much of what he does as a personal trainer. Sessions should always be tough and methodical, economical and effective. Each session should have an objective that works towards accomplishing a greater goal.
