I started at DMC after being intrigued by the testimonials, mainly from sports people. I am an active club runner, doing road and cross country and I was keen to find a way to get into shape and build my strength whilst still maintaining good levels of running, training and times.
I ate a lot of potatoes, pasta and bread, as that is what was prescribed as ‘good for energy’ given my training levels, without giving much thought to it.
I worked with Davie, who directed my diet and strength training whilst still allowing me to fit in my running training to maintain my fitness.
I committed to two 10 week blocks, during which time my strength increased, my body fat decreased and my posture improved. This was working with a slight spine curvature I have always had which affected my natural posture. I gained 3lb of muscle and reduced my bodyfat by 9%, taking me down to single digits.
The running season is just beginning and I will be reporting back on my performance. On the whole, I feel a lot stronger and more energetic in my training. I also feel that I am eating and sleeping better following the change in diet and not feeling the need to snack constantly that I felt before. My running posture & style has definitely improved in running training as a result of my coaching at DMC Fitness.
Once the cross country season is finished, I’ll definitely be back!
