“I would definitely recommend Dan to others, each session is a great workout and he pushes me much more than I would push myself in the gym which is exactly what I need.”
I have been training with Dan for just over two years now. I had a couple of objectives when I started, one was to lose weight and the other was to build strength to help improve my half-marathon running. I have been very impressed with Dan’s knowledge and the thought that goes into each session.
I particularly enjoy the variety of exercises using weights, body weight and isometric exercises in equal measure to break things up. Sessions are structured and work through different muscle groups (not forgetting legs!!) and we keep a diary of exercises completed to monitor progress. Dan has also got to know my various aches and pains over the years so we approach certain areas with more care and focus much more on stretching those areas out before working on them. I have a very busy work schedule so I have found Dan to be flexible with timing and pro-active in ensuring I can get sessions completed. In terms of completing my objectives, I have definitely built strength and my body shape has changed (more toned) – I’m still working on the weight loss but that’s more about my diet and more cardio outside training sessions! I would definitely recommend Dan to others, each session is a great workout and he pushes me much more than I would push myself in the gym which is exactly what I need.

“I would recommend Dan to everyone and anyone who needs support whether it’s a little or a lot he will get you to that desired place.”
I have always struggled when it comes to being healthy in all aspects from self confidence to having the knowledge required to live a healthy active lifestyle.
This is when I reached out to Dan to help me achieve my main goal of losing weight.
I cannot fault Dan from start to finish, at every session he would make sure I felt comfortable and at ease which was a surprise due to the general stereotype of a personal trainer.
My programme was tailored to my goals along with the support to push me to strive for what Ive always wanted to achieve and without Dan I wouldn’t of got there. I would recommend Dan to everyone and anyone who needs a support wether it’s a little or a lot he will get you to that desired place.

“Dan’s holistic approach suits me perfectly and I love the supportive atmosphere of the class which caters for all abilities.”
I can’t speak highly enough of Dan’s Bootcamp sessions. I’m a runner who was looking for a new challenge and to add some variety to my workouts. Dan’s holistic approach suits me perfectly and I love the supportive atmosphere of the class which caters for all abilities. My personal favourite is the 5 minute challenge, but I also love to see other people improve and within just a few weeks, people who haven’t exercised for a year are achieving things they thought impossible. If you love being outdoors, and need a bit of a change, this is the class for you. You get a tough but fun workout, with mud, rain, sun and even snow thrown in – and all for free!

“All of Dan’s workouts are well thought through, completely personalised and will get the results you asked for.”
Shortly after starting to work with StAPT, I realised that Dan offers much more than just what you would expect from personal training.
From the first session on, Dan not only had me do exercises’ but I was actually taught about how to exercise properly, how to set up my own training plans and got help getting into the right mindset to reach my goals.
In addition Dan is always happy to advise on nutrition and any other health and exercise related issues. All workouts are well thought through, completely personalised and will get the results you asked for, if you stick with them.

“I felt the benefit of the work I did with Dan almost immediately and after just a few sessions he equipped me with the tools and knowledge to plan my own workouts, which effectively helped me to achieve my goals.”
“After neglecting physical exercise for around 5 years I decided it was time to get back in shape and was looking for guidance. Dan was great at understanding what it was I wanted to achieve, and quickly identified the level I was currently at. I felt the benefit of the work I did with Dan almost immediately and after just a few sessions he equipped me with the tools and knowledge to plan my own workouts, which effectively helped me to achieve my goals. One year on I am in the best physical condition than I have been since I was 18, and am living a far healthier lifestyle. Much of this is thanks to Dan whose invaluable support and advice helped me improve my exercise and dieting habits in the long term, which has made me feel all the better for it.”

“It’s helped rejuvenate my motivation for improving and maintaining my fitness and Dan’s in-depth knowledge and advice is excellent.”
“Working indoors meant that I’d completely lost interest in going to the gym. Why workout inside when you can do it outside for free and breath fresh air? Dan’s Bootcamp is a great way to start the weekend, in a fun, dynamic, and friendly hour on a Saturday morning. It’s helped rejuvenate my motivation for improving and maintaining my fitness and Dan’s in-depth knowledge and advice is excellent. I really look forward to it.”

“Dan gave me a technical session in Calisthenics. I was really impressed. I go to the gym regularly but this really took things to a whole new level.”

“Dan portrays his knowledge by not only delivering fantastic sessions that keep members returning, but he shares new ideas to help people achieve their goals.”
I’ve been attending StAPT’s free Bootcamp since July 2014 and I absolutely love it! Dan oozes knowledge about health and fitness, and every week has something different! Each Saturday brings a new, challenging session based upon different training styles, which has been strategically planned to accommodate all members of different abilities to produce results! Dan portrays his knowledge by not only delivering fantastic sessions that keep members returning, but he shares new ideas to help people achieve their goals. Definitely a 10/10!

“During the session, we do a whole range of different exercises which are fun to do as they are often incorporated into games and teamwork.”
I first joined the StAPT Free Bootcamp in September after having recently moved into the area. I was a bit apprehensive at first as I didn’t know anyone but I soon felt at ease as Dan was very welcoming and everyone was friendly. What I particularly like is the warm up exercises which is especially good as we do an ice-breaker activity that introduces each of us to the members of the group for that particular week. During the session, we do a whole range of different exercises which are fun to do as they are often incorporated into games and teamwork. I would really recommend attending the Free Bootcamp as it feels good to exercise outside and alongside people who are good company to be with.

“Dan is a great personal trainer and he would definitely be my ‘go to’ person when I decide to properly throw myself into fitness.”
I started going to the free Saturday morning bootcamp in Highfield Park in July 2014 having heard about it through a Facebook group. Initially I presumed that the Bootcamp would involve lots of selling and promotions etc, there must be some catch right?! But there really isn’t, although it’s good to know that Dan is a great personal trainer and he would definitely be my ‘go to’ person when I decide to properly throw myself into fitness. Honestly before joining Bootcamp I really was an inherently lazy person with vague dreams of regaining the fitness of my youth but not doing anything about it. Saturday mornings were for relaxing. So I even surprised myself when I started going to Bootcamp. What kept me going week after week is that not only is it good fun, you meet some great people who are in a similar position to you, it’s also a fantastic training experience. The session starts with a warm up, something I would never do if left to my own devices, followed by a warm up game which usually gets very competitive but is lots of fun. Then the real ‘fun’ begins with a circuit course of various exercises, most were completely new to me and make use of either your own body weight, bars already in the park or sometimes weights or punchbags brought by Dan. You progress around the circuits, often with a partner to keep you motivated. The great thing about the circuits is that they are really different exercises, not the same boring ones you see everyone doing in the gym. Some change each week to keep it fresh, some stay the same so that you can really improve on your technique and notice an improvement. After the circuits comes the fat burning. Usually some kind of high intensity activity where you are encouraged to push yourself for “just 5 minutes of your entire day” (taken straight from the mouth of Dan). Then a relaxing and well deserved cool down. Dan is motivating and encouraging throughout the session and keeps you going even when you are gritting your teeth and willing for it to be over. I would totally recommend Dan as a personal trainer and the free bootcamp is fab. Everyone should come along!
