After being diagnosed with high blood pressure a couple of years ago and subsequent visits to my doctor she suggested that I consider a Personal Trainer, at 42 years young I weighed in at over 16 stone and having been a member of a commercial gym for more than 2 years achieved very little in terms of getting lean.
I decided to do a little research into seeking the services of a Personal Trainer, I simply typed in ‘Personal Trainers’ in Glasgow and the first Website that I came across was DMC, I was really interested with what DMC were all about as well as the testimonials from everyone who had used their services and didn’t even look at any other websites, I phoned and arranged a taster session not knowing quite what to expect, after 30 minutes with Davie I was hooked, the fact that Davie took the time to explain his own experiences really struck a chord with me, I immediately booked up.
My main goal was to get my weight to under 14 stone, I am now into my 4th block with DMC and in 9 months have lost 2 stone in weight, more than 21.5 inches of fat, and my bodyfat has decreased from 24.7% to 16%. The training is amazing and I really enjoy what I can only describe as cutting edge, every week brings something different, I cant believe I wasted so much time & money on a commercial gym!
I have more confidence in myself than I’ve had for a long time with the physical change that I am experiencing, fitting into clothes and suits that were ill fitting before is fantastic, obviously healthy eating is important and Davie also gives excellent advice on nutrition as well as a weekly food diary to help you log what you eat by doing this you can track and see what food works for you and what doesn’t, my lifestyle has completely changed in terms of my diet which has helped me reduce my blood pressure, my resting heart rate has been as low as 55bpm.
There have been occasions (xmas and holidays), whereby I’ve not been as strict however have still made conscious decisions regards healthy eating, getting back on track quickly is important, as you dont want your hard work & effort to be wasted. Davie describes it as ‘your journey’ and is not judgemental in any way whatsoever.
DMC for me do exactly what it says on the tin – they transform and change peoples lives. there is so much that I could add but will run out of space and superlatives that would describe DMC. My only regret is that I didn’t discover Davie & DMC years ago! Davie & Pablo are totally committed to helping you achieve your goals, you will only get out what you put in. I would personally like to thank Pablo for his support, enthusiasm, guidance and dedication in helping me achieve my goals, this isn’t the end for me it’s just the beginning. Thanks Team DMC… “Strength for Life”!
The Evolution… I have been training with DMC for just short of 2 years now and as evolution goes, things change, my initial goal was and remains my weight, however, as I’ve progressed through my journey I have realised that being leaner is only one element of a bigger picture, my hunger for being fitter, leaner & stronger in relation to training changed when Davie introduced group sessions at DMC, as well as my 1-2-1 with Pablo I began to go along to circuit classes, initially once a week which very quickly progressed into twice a week, this was exactly the extra motivation I needed. In February the GKC was formed and although I was enjoying my training I wanted to do more which is where the GKC came in and I subsequently ‘joined the club’ unfortunately due to holidays I missed two competitions, however in June I got my first taste of competing in an in-house competition which was fantastic. More recently myself and a fellow DMC’er, Chris have started doing stair sprints at Kelvingrove Park on a Sunday morning just to add that something a bit different into my training. I never imagined that I would be doing some of the things that my training provides and at 44 years old I never thought that I would be as mentally & physically fit as I am today, it’s brilliant to get involved with everyone at DMC, all like-minded people who want to be fit & healthy. It’s not ‘all work and no play’ there have been occasions where Davie has organised some social events which is another great way of everyone getting together.
All in all, from a fitness perspective, DMC has been the best thing that I’ve ever got involved in, I cannot recommend them highly enough, with a first class training facility and staff, there simply is no-one better…
