Said About Me


As a mum to 3 boys, I’m constantly worrying about there well being, are they fit enough, are they mentally and physically healthy, are they respectful humans, all the things we want them to be. Daniel came into there life at the perfect time, one was transitioning to high school, one was turning 16 and one was stuck in his little body and didn’t feel strong enough. He has been a constant teacher, mentor and friend to them and I can’t thank him enough. He not only has built there fitness with his training groups, he has kept them on the right track and chasing there dreams, kept there minds clear and he has also shown them that in life there is challenges we all face, life is not all easy, he is honest with them and that is so important to me. Just recently we called on Dan to help my eldest through an injury, he seen to him straight away, pinpointing exactly where the injury was and also checking in on him too.
Dan your such a kind human, awesome mentor for my boys, and if they turn out half of who you are I will be happy. Can’t recommend you highly enough.
