Assistant Manager/Head Coach
My reasons for getting into the fitness industry were threefold:
- To show people how great exercise is.
- To help the general public discover the potential that we all have inside us.
- To prove that exercise can bring that potential out, no matter what your level of experience is.
My aim is to guide people to achieve the results that they have sought after for so long with a joint commitment focus. My ideal students are people willing to let me guide them to the results that they have always wanted to achieve. I’m a personal trainer Glasgow based at DMC Fitness in the city centre.

Hobbies, interests & passions
My hobbies and passions include all forms of training / exercise, martial arts, football and spending time with my wife, Emma.
I first met Davie during his work experience from college. I worked for Living Well at the time and was one of their degree-educated SVQ Level 3 personal trainers. I remember Davie talking to me about it and declaring that he would be a personal trainer one day. I knew there and then on our first meeting that he was very passionate about the new life he had found and something told me that great things were to come from him.
Whilst Davie was finishing his strength and conditioning module at college, he became overwhelmed with the workload and I said to him that should he need any help, all he had to do was ask. He called me up and we spent hours on the phone during which time I helped to answer all of his questions. We look back and laugh about it now. It was the start of a beautiful relationship that has taken us to driving DMC Fitness to where it is today.
Davie speaks fondly about his time spent following me around the gym, asking ‘How do I do this? How do I do that?’ As I was the team leader and senior advisor on Davie’s start as a fitness advisor following his 2 years at college, I took Davie under my wing. Fast forward to the present day, Davie owns and directs the company and I am his right hand man and head coach. I am also the strength and conditioning/supplement specialist within the company. I have been driving the success of DMC Fitness along with Davie, Grant and Julie for the last 3 years. I was the first employee of the company and in the 4 years that I have been here, we have grown the company from strength to strength, moving from a small studio into our own custom-built private training facility. In 2011, Grant came on board as Davie’s first apprentice coach and I spent time with him, developing him and teaching him everything I know. Julie followed suit by becoming a coach in early 2013 and I did the same with her. I am proud to have played a part in developing such fantastic coaches, to have produced some of the most successful transformations to come out of DMC Fitness and look forward to helping others in the future.
