Excelling in his role as a high-performance executive coach and fitness expert. Designing and creating his unique coaching facility in Glasgow was a huge dream come true.
Davie did this with the full support and backing of Julie, Pablo, and Grant. Grant and Julie both left the careers they were in to play their part in making this dream come true.
The full project cost over £100k and was done by Davie on his own. No funding or financial support from investors.
Davie had to navigate himself through 5 years of year on year business growth just to get out of the accumulation of debt and make the business solvent.
This whole experience was both extremely painful and very productive and has helped to shape Davie into the character and successful entrepreneur he is today.
In 2016, Davie launched the DMC “M” Power 5 Program, bringing together a unique blend of expertise, utilised after a decade of health, fitness and mindset coaching.
This model is used on all three of the DMC programs: Diamond Elite, Platinum and Gold.
Davie’s purpose in life is to eradicate sedentary lifestyle.
His mission is to motivate 10 Million people M-T-M.
The vision is a global reach.
The vehicle is the DMC “M” Power 5.
The platforms will be from DMC HQ in Glasgow Scotland and digitally via his website and online membership service.
Combining all of the above alongside Davie’s values of inspiring, educating, motivating and transforming the lives of those he coaches in his lifetime he will drive to see his purpose and mission in life complete.

Davies Loves & Passions
Teaching is my main passion. I really do love to teach. There is a special type of fulfilment that comes from watching a student learn, grow, develop and transform. It’s a truly wonderful experience and one that fills me with massive pride and drives my purpose and mission in life.
I love training I exercise every day first thing in the morning before my coaching or business development day begins. My favourite types of training are kickboxing, strength circuits, kettlebell training, skipping, cycling and mountain trekking. In between my heavy training sessions, I focus on my mobility, flexibility and active recovery.
Away from teaching, training and developing our business I will be spending time with my wife Julie and our boys Lewis and James. We enjoy eating out, going to the soft play and cinema and we ensure we get sunshine holidays together and playing in the pool. My family is a massive part of my life.
My third love after my family and my fitness is food. I have a huge love for food. I love everything about it. Sourcing, cooking and eating it. Socialising with friends and family and going as far as entering and even winning a Man Vs Food eating competition. I love watching my favourite chefs and cooks creating their magic on the TV and I love to sit down to an epic feast.
My other loves are music, motivation and meditation.
At any given point in the day, if I can have music, Ted talks or motivation speakers on I will have. When I get some me time I’ll open the windows, close the curtains plug my headphones in and disappear into the music, motivation or a guided meditation.
I make sure I have fun planned around my passions on a daily basis. It takes planning, organisation and discipline but is well worth it. I live a fast-paced, exciting and very fulfilling life.
Exercise has given me everything I have to date and for that, I will be forever grateful. Back when I was crawling through the darkness of addiction, obesity and mental health there was no direction in my life. I was completely lost, desolate sad, and very, very afraid.
Then exercise came into my life-like a big shinning angel. I was given a chance to change and deciding to make that change was the best decision I have ever made and this is when my life’s journey really began.
During my journey, every day I learn something new about myself and the people around me. I cherish my clients and students as it is them who give me the opportunity to be their coach.
My coaching skills are a perfect fit for Chief Executive Officers, Managing Directors, Executives and established business owners.
“The decisions that you make today are the positive changes you implement tomorrow”
I hope to meet you in person soon.
To health, happiness and ‘Strength for Life’,
