Grant McLachlan

Grant took a leap of faith in 2011, going from 6 years of cooking in professional kitchens to the world of fitness and private health coaching.

After being a student at DMC and achieving massive results by shedding 5 stone of fat in less than a year and completely changing his outlook on life, Grant was sure this was what he wanted to do.

Grant wants to help others achieve the things he has and help guide them to a happy, healthier way of life.

In 2012, Grant helped the company to achieve its best ever results. His students alone burned over 60 stones of fat between them, making him the most successful coach in the fat loss department.

Grant’s most successful transformations to date are:

Grant feels a huge sense of pride when he sees his clients’ before and after photographs and reads their stories. His commitment to his students helps them to achieve the confidence and positive thinking necessary to make a change in their lives.

Grant knows what it feels like to be the guy who’s out of shape, who sweats from walking up a flight of stairs and who’s afraid to take his top off.

His personal transformation experience is what gives his clients the confidence that they need to change things.

Grant loves all forms of exercise and movement. As a coach, he specialises in kettlebell training, strength-based training, bodyweight and conditioning.

He has competed nationally in amateur kettlebell sport across the UK and was 2 times Scottish champion. He also enjoyed boxing twice in white collar events.

Personal statement

I have always known that I wanted to help people and to make a difference in their lives, I just didn’t know how.

I came to train at DMC Fitness in 2009 after being persuaded by my family that I needed to make radical changes in my life as I was dangerously overweight.

With the help of Davie’s knowledge and advice, I shed a massive 5 ½ stone in my first year.

Training had become the highlight of my week and I had gone from being clinically obese and unhappy to being Davie’s training partner and having this incredible buzz for life.

In early 2010, Davie offered me the position as his apprentice. I couldn’t accept fast enough. It was at this point that I realised what I wanted to do with my life and this is how I could help people, the same way Davie had helped me.

I trained as Davie’s apprentice on my days off from working as a chef, shadowing him and Pablo and taking notes. I thought it was great getting to meet and speak to so many people in a day and couldn’t wait until I had my own students.

I am proud to say I am now a full-time coach at DMC Fitness and love the buzz of helping people achieve their goals and transforming their lives for the better.

My ideal student is someone that is in the same position I was in only a few years ago, who are looking to lose body fat, change shape and embrace a fit and healthy lifestyle.
