David spent over thirty five years in the corporate world as a senior executive, he decided to step away from that world as he moved into semi-retirement and pursue something he enjoys and has been of great benefit to him – Personal Training.
David is the first to admit he’s not a natural athlete or sportsman, quite the opposite. He understands the struggle people have with maintaining exercise discipline, healthy diet and managing self-esteem issues. Crucially, He’s experienced the challenges people face on their journey to a fit and healthy lifestyle. For him, that journey was from being unfit, and carrying thirty-eight inches on his waist, to being active, in shape and thoroughly enjoying both personal training sessions and his own time working out.
“If I can do it in my sixties, anyone can, and I want to show people how.” - David

While working on losing some weight and getting in better shape, Matt fell in love with martial arts and began training in multiple disciplines. He trained for several years in non-competitive martial arts believing he was too old to compete. Matt decided to test himself and began competing and in 2021 won a national title in K1.
