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 love to spend 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 where we spend time 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 it. I love everything about it. That includes sourcing it, cooking it and eating it. There’s nothing I enjoy more that sitting down to an epic feast with family and friends. Such is my love for food that I even went as far as entering and winning a Man v Food eating competition. I also love watching my favourite chefs and cooks create their magic on TV.

My other loves are music, motivation and meditation. At any given point in the day if I can listen to music, TED talks or motivational speakers then I will. 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.

Personal statement

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 poor 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 shining 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 have learned 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’,
