Coach Daz is a top guy (shhh but don’t tell him!) He is very knowledgeable about fitness. He pushes you when you need that extra nudge and keeps you focused on your goals. He is also v good on nutrition and is always willing to discuss what you can do to keep on track Add in the support and encouragement he gives - you really couldn’t ask for a better trainer. He makes going to the gym worthwhile. More...

I’ve been training with Darren for over a year in which time I’ve lost approximately 20 kilos and my body shape has changed noticeably. Darrens continuous support and encouragement has played a huge part in my journey. He has educated me how to eat and train to improve my health and well being, and has encouraged me through tough times. Darren positive attitude and encouragement outside of training sessions has been so valuable and I’ve been able to send pictures of my food, that we discuss at my review.Darren even took time to educate himself on how going through the menopause has an impact on my training.The app is great and keeps me updated on my progress,My mindset is a different nowadays. I love who I am and how I feel. I’m a full on active grandmother, and my granddaughters even exercise with me. I can’t thank Darren enough. More...

I have been working with Darren for over three years and have complete confidence in his abilities as a personal trainer and nutritional advisor. Darren is highly professional and sets testing but achievable goals in the gym. He is also extremely knowledgeable about physiology and nutrition. Over the years, I have had several personal trainers but none come close to Darren in terms of his knowledge, skills and commitment to improving the health and fitness of his clients. I have no hesitation in recommending him as a top-class instructor and the genuine all round nice guy that he is. More...

Over the past couple of years I’ve had a few personal trainers and can honestly say that Darren is the best. His knowledge is second to none and has helped me to perfect my techniques to give me the best results. I was sceptical about weight training but I’m the strongest and in the best shape I’ve ever been. He has tailored a plan completely to my needs, meaning that this is a lifestyle change and not just a quick fix. Is always supportive and genuinely a lovely guy. More...

I had reservations about getting a personal trainer due to feeling anxious in a gym environment. From the first consultation Darren made me feel at ease. My confidence has grown so much in the few months Darren has been training me and I’m feeling the strongest and fittest I have in years, and have dropped 2 dress sizes as well! Darren sets me realistic goals but also pushes me out of my comfort zone to get the best out of me. Darren is supportive both in and out of sessions and provides nutrition coaching by sending out recipe packs each month. He also monitors workouts I do independently on his app, which he designed for me. I also love that he connects clients via a Facebook group so we can all support one another. Couldn’t recommend Darren highly enough! More...

Making the decision to start training with Darren has been one of the best choices I’ve made. Before I started training with him I would find excuses most nights to skip my workout at the gym. Training with Darren has changed the attitude I used to have and has inspired me to keep on track with my fitness goals.
During sessions at the gym Darren is always ready to challenge me but will never push me further than he knows I can manage. The hour goes by very fast, as the sessions are a lot of fun and very motivating!
Darren is extremely organised and very reliable. He has made me my own programme to follow for the days when I am not training with him. When I first started training with Darren he sent me lots of his own materials to help me develop my knowledge on the importance of nutrition. He reads my food diaries every time I send them to him and gives me feedback each time about habits to change or to continue with. I have learnt so much about nutrition from Darren and for that I am truly thankful to him.
Darren is a great personal trainer and I would highly recommend getting in touch with him if you are thinking about having training sessions.

Very kind of you, Lesley. It's a pleasure working with you! :)

While I may not have overcome my weakness for cheese and wine, I have managed to leave behind my old coach potato lifestyle thanks to Darren's inspiring and (literally) stretching training sessions! Three times a week Darren puts me through my paces at Pulse in Carshalton, always varying the workouts and pushing me that little bit harder. I can honestly say he is the best fitness coach I have come across, positive in attitude yet disciplined in getting results from his clients. He is also incredibly knowledgeable about all aspects of fitness. Previous male coaches were more interested in their body waxes and spray tans but with Darren the client always comes first. He also covers nutritional advice which is invaluable in maximining improvement. Finally he is a reliable and organised guy who does everything he can to accommodate the pressures his clients face in their daily lives - in my case the living nightmare that is Southern Rail! Do sign up for training with him - it will be transformational, believe me. More...

Q&As

Have you ever heard of the saying "You are what you eat?" Of course you have, it couldn't be more true! Every cell we have within our body is eventually dies and is replaced by what we decide to eat. That should be a BIG indication of how important a healthy diet is!

Significant results through fitness aren't just the result of tailored and progressive training, its also the ability to build up and maintain healthier eating habits. In addition to providing you with tailored and progressive training, ill will teach you the necessary skills required in the kitchen. Portion control, knowing what to eat, when to eat it and how to eat in the most effective manner for maximum fat loss! My goals is to give you the knowledge and skill to live a healthier lifestyle, both inside and outside the gym.

In order to guarantee your success, a personalised meal plan will be designed based on methods that have been scientifically proven to promote fat loss. Your progress will be monitored at regular intervals through the use of food diaries and bi weekly check ins.

All to help guarantee you your results!

There has to be an important reason for why you want to change - Why? Because changing your body and habits is a hard thing to do. There will be times when you don't want to put a workout in, or eat that healthy meal. It's at these times that you need to remember exactly why you embarked on this journey in the first place.

Remembering your WHY will help motivate you through the times when you need it most. And these times will come, trust me, your're human!

Helping people change their bodies and grow in confidence!

I began my career at David Lloyd when I was 18 years old! I felt that I gained everything I could from working in the big health clubs so it was time to build something for myself instead of working for others!

I have a vast amount of experience as a trainer. I've worked with many people with different injuries, goals and ability levels and have the passion and the knowledge to inspire change in you. Provided that you really want to change and have a good reason WHY you'd like to embark on a journey to a fitter healthier you - Ill certainly help you get there!

Lets do it!
