HERE'S WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY ABOUT US
On a serious note, Dan has taught me that consistency is key and it has actually been easy to remain consistent with Dan’s programming. He writes my programs to incorporate the main compound exercises for S&C training that I need, but knows I find these movements a tad mundane after time. He balances this by using his vast knowledge and S&C imagination to create new and exciting ‘finishers’ to end my sessions. Always different, always challenging and always pushing me to my limits. These leave me a sweat-ball mess where I finish each session on a high with the endorphins fully flowing.
For fear of sound cheesy – Dan really is the man.
I had been struggling with trying to balance cycling regularly and improving performance on the bike, whilst still doing strength sessions in the gym and getting stronger and shapelier.
I’ve had loads of PT’s over the years and was someone that ‘knew what I was doing’ when it comes to the gym, but it just wasn’t working for me recently.
I was cycling reasonably well but always having doms from leg weights, which wasn’t bringing out the best in my cycling, so somewhat defeating the object.
I was also developing a puny upper body as per the cyclist look. Being 41 and paranoid of muscle loss, I was desperate to keep muscle, even build some if possible, continue with endurance, not be sore, not flare up old back and hamstring injuries....oh and to do some pull ups!! Some ask!
My block of PT with Dan has been brilliant, so much so I have extended it and just don’t want it to end.
Everything has felt so specific to my likes, my sport, my goals and injury restrictions.
I’ve looked forward to every session, I feel like I can do moves that have always defeated me or caused me niggles. I can even do a pull-up!
As for the cycling, well I’m quicker than I’ve ever been and that has to have something to do with the training!
I’ve never felt sore, something I would have previously associated with not training hard enough, but I’m happy with my shape so something is definitely working.
It’s totally changed my mindset to strength training and helped me find the perfect balance. Can’t thank you enough Dan 👍🏼
He offers a bespoke training, tailored to my needs, resulting in a holistic approach to my physical and mental well-being.
He has a detailed knowledge of anatomy,physiology and nutrition which has helped prevent training injuries and has significantly reduced my previous problems with back pain.
Through Dan I undertook the Firstbeat Lifestyle Assessment. This was straightforward and highly informative. It reinforced what Dan advises and showed me how physical activity improved my sleep quality and stress management. It demonstrates how some small lifestyle changes can help me recover better and has improved my focus and energy levels.”
I spent 16 weeks following a fitness and diet programme that Dan had written and tailored for me to compete on stage. I dropped 8% body fat and gained lean muscle. I placed 3rd in the Welsh UKBFF and gained a place to compete in the British championships.
Dan is very personable, incredibly knowledgable and passionate about what he does. I felt Dan was realistic in his goal setting and considered my life style when devising the programme. I have two young children and work so this had to be factored in with the amount and times I was training.
For anyone thinking of training with Forbes Performance, I'd say give it a go! Dan definitely sets you up to succeed. He's realistic and fun. If you're honest about what you want to archive and what your lifestyle encounters he will tailor the programme to you and I'm sure you will be pleasantly pleased with the outcome.
