Everyone’s journey with fitness is different and each of our trainers have gotten involved with different forms of exercise over the years and as a result, have developed their own unique passion for fitness. Over the next few weeks we’re going to be sharing each of their journeys with you, this week we’re focusing on Dan’s.
Where it all began
I started in the fitness industry as a gym instructor at Fitness First over 10 years ago. From there I gained my PT qualifications and jumped in feet first into the job full time.
Finding my passion for Martial Arts
Prior to being at Fitness First my journey into the fitness industry truly began with a love of sport through my childhood being involved in lots of different sports.
Martial arts was where I found my calling and trained in numerous styles and competed all over the world until my mid 20’s, from which point I was assisting teaching alongside my own training. It was during my early 20’s where I knew the fitness game was where I wanted to commit myself to.
Time to take a new path
After some time at Fitness First, I took on the health and fitness managers role until Fitness First pulled their franchise from Peterborough so I had to find a new path.
From there I never took a step back into a commercial gym, I worked as an independent PT in various local fitness centres before moving to Escape Fitness’s showroom where I ran classes and my PT business.
It was at Escape where I met Foxy and the rest is history…
