I’ve been doing training and Bootcamp sessions for a few years now and my fitness and commitment to regular exercise has improved dramatically. Dave is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about exercise and rehabilitation. He puts excellent exercise programs together to suit you and your needs to ensure you improve but at your speed and capability. He focuses on improvement being sustainable and commitment to regular training being the key. His approach is positive and encouraging and he makes exercise fun! The other people at his Bootcamps are really friendly too. Brilliant commitment, patience and knowledge- especially about rehabilitation issues which may affect your exercise ability and overall mobility. I completely recommend DP Fitness and Rehabilitation. Keep up the good work Dave!


I've been enjoying Dave's Boot camps this summer. Such a friendly group of people, and Dave is very welcoming. Awsome group workouts and for all fitness levels


I’ve been training with Dave for several months now and have seen massive improvements in my overall health and fitness, and the training has enhanced my rugby performances no end. From cardio to weight training; Dave really knows his stuff! The sessions are always fun, varied and enjoyable. Dave is a fantastic personal trainer and I would highly recommend him to anyone, whether you are starting your fitness journey or looking for a challenge, Dave PT is your man!


Dave is a fantastic Personal Trainer. He has managed to build my confidence and helped me form a healthier relationship with exercise. I attend both Bootcamp sessions and personal training. I couldn’t have asked for someone more patient and creative. As someone who suffers ill health and previous injuries, Dave has tailored his approach to accommodate my weaknesses and worked with me to make me stronger. The bootcamp group are friendly and welcoming - not only are you getting a wide variety of exercises, you meet lovely people who support each other along their fitness journey. I enjoy working with Dave and looking forward to a healthier and fitter future. I recommend Dave to all family and friends


Have been having PT training with Dave twice weekly since June! He made me feel relaxed and set realistic goals suited to me, sessions have been fun and motivating, would recommend to anyone looking to make positive lifestyle changes


I’ve been working with Dave for about a year now and he’s awesome! Workouts that are tailored to suit your ability yet challenge you to push yourself to the max. My strength, stamina and overall fitness have massively improved and still a work in progress but looking forward to more achievements in 2019. Definitely recommend!


I have really enjoyed Dave's sessions. He is professional, patient and knowledgable. He sets realistic, but challenging targets and has never once made me feel silly. With his help, I have learnt to improve my techniques in many different exercises and tried lots of new things. I look forward to our sessions and would recommend Dave without hesitation.


I started PT sessions with Dave at the beginning of August and absolutely love it, he makes the sessions varied and fun but also challenges you too. I have noticed some amazing results in my overall fitness and starting to feel more confident in myself again. I also attend the LSP injury prevention class on a Sunday and have been doing so since the end of July and it has helped my knee problem immensely, when I started I wasn’t able to fully straighten my leg and was in pain daily with my knee now I am able to straighten my leg and pain free. I am looking forward to continuing with my PT and LSP sessions. Starting these sessions had been the best thing I have ever done for my health/fitness and wellbeing, I would highly recommend Dave.


I couldn't recommend Dave highly enough as a personal trainer. With little knowledge or will power of where to start with a fitness plan, Dave put us at ease and never made us feel anything other than comfortable while exercising (which doesn't come naturally to myself) have continued to have a weekly training session and plan to get the kids fit with the fantastic family bootcamps too.


I have been attending PT with Dave for a year now. He is extremely knowledgeable, patient and makes sessions varied and fun. He comes up with new ideas and as well as pushing me further, keeps me motivated – the hour goes so quickly, before I know it, it is time to finish! My fitness levels have improved greatly and I have definitely improved my core strength. With his good knowledge of injury recovery, he comes up with lots of different strengthening techniques. His Bootcamp sessions are very varied and the opportunity of outside sessions in the good weather keeps us on our toes! Whether you are just starting out or a veteran to fitness, I can’t recommend Dave highly enough! Sheena


I can highly recommend Dave as an excellent fitness trainer to anyone at any level of ability as I initially thought I was a lost cause. Now I have already completed 30 training sessions on a one to one basis and the progress I have made with his expert guidance, encouragement and professionalism has been amazing. Not only have I advanced booked 5 lessons this time I have advanced booked 10!!! Surely that speaks for itself. Thank you Dave - Great job!


Since booking our wedding it gave me 10 months to get in shape for it... I found Dave through some friends and he has most certainly helped me loose weight and my whole body shape has changed I found myself a lot fitter mentally and physically!! I then joined his group sessions on a Wednesday evening and Saturday mornings and what a great bunch of people so friendly and a great laugh.... I new what foods to eat as Dave would give me nutrition advice on what foods I should and shouldn’t eat... I get so many compliments from people saying how well I have done and how much weight I have lost... I can actually wear clothes I never thought ov wearing before hand it’s gave me more confidence... couple of before and after pictures if u need to get fit daves your man!


Dave is a really good Personal Trainer and is Highly Recommended x


I’ve been training with Dave since September. Previously I’ve attended classes but always ended up with an injury (usually knees) and then end up stopping. From the start Dave has focused on how to get me fit whilst taking into consideration my (potential) injuries and what I need to focus on. Each week is different and I have found each one to be challenging but enjoyable. Consequently I am stronger, fitter and this has impacted on my general quality of life. I have more energy (which has been lacking for a long time!) and better concentration. I am currently preparing to run a half marathon. So far all is going according to plan and I know that it is down to Dave and his advice/classes. And most importantly - I have fun!


Dave is excellent, efficient and reliable ! I’ve noticed a massive change in my fitness ! I would totally recommend him to anyone no matter how big or small or unfit ! Thanks Dave


Exercise has never been an easy fit for me - until now! I discovered PT with Dave 3 months ago and it has changed my life. Dave is passionate about exercise, not just for losing weight and becoming fit but also for the benefits it brings to the rest of your life. Dave’s great gift is his ability to read a client and tailor the exercise to their level and interests. I never dreamed the gym would be my happy place!


Dave Is a brilliant PT: really knows his stuff and creates interesting, challenging and fun sessions. His boot camps are literally for everyone, whatever your current fitness level. There's no pressure to be anything other than your best, as it is now. Dave's calm, encouraging and relaxed approach gets the best out of everyone - but don't be fooled: he works you hard without you realising it, especially in your PT sessions - and the results really show. My fitness levels, my stamina and my strength have all improved dramatically. He is knowledgeable about injuries and created a programme for my damaged Achilles that I saw improvement on in as little as 2 days. �% recommended.


Dave is an absolute legend! He's really got me motivated to get where I want to get too! He gets the mix right between working you hard but not to the point where he overworks you & don't enjoy it! Loving my sessions with him & will be using him for a long time yet!


I've been training with Dave since the end of January. I have lost 9'' from my hips and 7'' from my waist. My health has improved enormously and the chronic sciatica that had dogged me for a year before is completely gone. Now that the summer's on its way, I have joined his outdoor bootcamp sessions too - they are brilliant. Dave is a really good trainer who knows how to get the best out of clients, whatever their level.


Dave is a great instructor, and always welcoming. He puts us through our paces at Boot Camp, which is tough for someone who only does once a week, (my choice) but we have a lot of fun too. We are a mixed bunch with varying ages and fitness - my daughter of 14 yrs joins us too. Dave will find alternative exercises if something is too hard for any individual. The hour zooms by with a variety of circuits, competitive races and core work. I am definitely finding those muscles I'd forgotten I had had, and am consequently getting fitter. I would recommend his classes to beginners as well as those who are already pretty fit. Dave can get more out of you, than you think is possible.


I started out at boot camp which I found both fun and challenging at the same time. Working shifts got in the way so started one to one sessions which I could attend on a more consistent basis. Each session built upon the last and I could feel the difference as time went on. Even a weakness in one arm/shoulder was not a problem as the work out was adapted and helped to make it stronger.


Dave is so welcoming. For me his bootcamp has the perfect balance of great fun and hard work. The injury prevention class helps my 16 yr old daughter to strengthen her muscles to support hyper-mobility while I focus on improving my strength to help my running. It feels very personal with Daves’s quiet correction and support. Dave remembers my individual needs and is quick to adapt exercises to suit my injury. He varies exercises with individual, pair and group work at a pace to suit all abilities. It’s a great mix between personal achievement and the odd competition to keep you working hard! I like being outdoors so it’s lovely to train outside at St Margarets Bay holiday park where there is still a private feel. When I want to catch up with Gareth we don’t go for a drink or a meal anymore we go to bootcamp. It’s social not just exercise!


Been going to Dave for 6 months now on and off. He is so professional at all times and can put together a specific program to suit your requirements. Highly recommended


As a first time gym-goer, I found the support and advice from Dave enormously helpful. He is knowledgeable, patient and always encouraging. I am hard of hearing and during group sessions he always checks that I’ve understood the instructions, often signing the exercise to help me understand. It really is a session tailored to your needs. I am sure that I wouldn’t have achieved so much without his advice, I couldn’t rate him more highly.


I started one to one personal training with Dave early in 2018, initially for six weekly sessions. I was nervous to begin with, but with Dave's encouragement I soon gained confidence and have continued weekly training ever since. Dave does not let me rest on any laurels I may have earned, I now have more energy and confidence and my clothes fit better!


Since starting 1:1 sessions with Dave in Feb 17 I have successfully improved my level of fitness. His excellent communicative skills along with supportive encouragement have enabled me to achieve my goals. He has the ability to encourage me to keep driving towards my personal targets by providing me with a structured, challenging but ultimately achievable programme. For anyone who lacks confidence but is keen to improve their level of fitness I would have no hesitation in recommending Dave.


Since beginning my sessions with Dave my strength, movement and overall function has improved no end. I have thoroughly enjoyed our sessions which have been varied and progressive throughout and I am looking forward to continuing with these sessions.


I started sessions with Dave, after a neighbour recommended him, in September 2019 after an injury meant I had to stop running and I did not want to go down the surgical route. Best decision ever! I have to admit that I’ve never particularly looked forward to tough workouts but with Dave, he somehow manages to target all the areas in such a calm, professional and clearly explained way that the sessions fly by. If, for any reason, I have to skip a session I genuinely miss it. He has managed to increase the strength around my knee brilliantly, as well as, targeting other specific areas I wanted to address. He mixes up the workouts so I’m always learning new techniques and never get bored. He is so knowledgeable when it comes to rehabilitation and I am definitely feeling stronger and so much fitter. Highly recommend him.


I have been training with Dave now for a couple of years. As I am a very amateur triathlete, I regularly cycle, run and swim, but my indoor training was non existent. I did not have the enthusiasm for strength and core work. This is where Dave comes in. He works with me on my core, weights, strength and conditioning. He is aware of my fitness and works around what races I have coming up. This has all helped in my overall well being and fitness. For anyone looking for a PT I would thoroughly recommend Dave.


I have had regular training sessions with Dave for just over a year, initially by myself in the gym, and now a joint session with my wife at home via Zoom. We try to have a session every few days and I would highly recommend Dave to anyone looking for a personal trainer. The sessions are always varied and very well thought out, my wife and I have suffered with various long-term minor injuries in recent years, probably caused by bad training practices! The knowledge that Dave brings to these sessions has helped us focus on strengthening these problematic areas, and we've both seen significant improvement. Having a regular exercise schedule has improved our all-round health, fitness and function, and on top of all of this, Dave is a really nice guy too....apart from on leg days


Since starting 1-1 sessions with Dave I now enjoy exercise rather than considering it a chore. Dave adapts your sessions to meet individual goals, whilst keeping them challenging and varied. His approach has helped to keep me motivated, even through lockdown as we simply moved our sessions onto zoom. My health and fitness levels have greatly improved, along with my core strength. I would definitely recommend working out with Dave, who is both friendly and professional.
