Making a Positive Impact

I have been in the fitness industry since 2011 and have a genuine passion for helping people reach their health and fitness goals. It was in going through my own weight loss transformation that inspired me to become a personal trainer and help others do the same. I spent the initial part of my career working alongside older and far more experienced trainer's which enabled me to learn from them and develop my own unique style.
I have honed my skills over thousands of client-facing hours and in recent years have added to my areas of expertise. I am also a qualified Yoga teacher (Yin yoga) and more recently I have qualified as a breathing coach with the scientifically backed Oxygen advantage by Patrick McKeown. I have vast experience working with a wide range of clients from complete beginners, gym enthusiast's to competitive athletes. I am a highly experienced and well-rounded coach who can help you get results.

Personal training can be an invaluable asset to your life. Having someone walk you through each exercise and provide you with feedback on your progress can be the difference between achieving your goals and stagnating or giving up entirely.


I am also a qualified Yin and Wellbeing yoga teacher. If you are looking for one-one yoga sessions then please don't hesitate to get in touch to really feel the benefits of Yin Yoga!


I am a certified Advanced breath work instructor with the oxygen advantage. The oxygen advantage is a series of scientifically backed breathing exercises and techniques that can improve your performance, your mental state and your overall well-being.

Training with Danny is the perfect combination of fun and hard work that makes you want to push yourself to your limits. Danny creates a culture of hard work, maximum effort, but achievable goals. If advice is needed on nutrition or training around wee niggles/injuries he is always on hand is always supportive. Our fitness has improved hugely since training with Danny and feel so much better physically and mentally, especially as we trained all through lockdown with video sessions. We would highly recommend Danny to anyone who wants to see great results whilst actually enjoying their training.

I first started training with Dan in 2018 following a knee injury I’d sustained the year before. Dan created a personalised programme that included lots of squats, lunges and glute exercises to target and strengthen my problem areas. That combined with a focused stretching session before and after the session saw me back out running super quick. As the sessions were so enjoyable and varied I continued to stick with them and discovered I also had a love of weight lifting and boxing. Dan is a great coach. So motivational and encouraging - no matter what your ability he will work with u too get the results you require. His chat is not too bad either!

I really enjoyed training with Daniel - he helped to change my mindset towards fitness and I now have a love of exercise which I never had before. I would highly recommend anyone getting in touch for help towards your fitness goals and a good laugh along the way!

I can’t recommend Daniel enough – I’ve trained with him for over a year now and I can only express how professional and thorough he is in his tutelage. My goal was to trim down and get healthier and I came away with an education. A young guy with big ideals!



Despite performing at an international level for my sport, motivating myself to stay fit, sticking to a routine has always been difficult. Previously I was able to just get by on my own, but in summer 2023 I thankfully made the right decision and started working with Dan on my fitness goals.
Thanks to his expertise and knowledge, I not only feel the most motivated and healthy I have ever felt, I am seeing the progress we are making both on and off the field, highlighted in gaining personal bests in fitness tests required for my sport. This is in large part to our work on oxygen advantage training as well as Dan’s excellent experience and know how, making tailored sessions which work for me!
I would recommend Dan’s services to anyone I can, especially if they are as comic book mad as he is!
