Head Coach / Assistant Manager
My reasons for getting into the fitness industry were threefold:
- To show how great exercise is.
- To help others discover the potential that we all have inside us.
- To share how 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, coupled with a commitment to their 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 Glasgow-based personal trainer at DMC Fitness in the city centre.
I have worked with exercisers of all levels throughout my time in the fitness industry. It has been said that my success in producing some of the best transformations in the industry is phenomenal.
Below is a selection of my best transformations to date.

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 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 brought DMC Fitness to where it is today.
Davie speaks fondly about his time, back in 2007, spent following me around the gym, asking, ‘How do I do this? How do I do that?’ 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 the bodybuilding, strength and conditioning and supplement specialist at DMC.
I love driving the success of DMC Fitness along with Davie, Julie, Grant and Steven. I was the first employee of the company in 2010 and in the time I have been here, we have all helped grow the company from strength to strength, moving from a small studio into the own custom-built private training facility we inhabit now.
In 2011 Grant came on board as Davie’s first apprentice coach and I spent time with him, developing and teaching him. Julie followed suit by becoming our female coach in early 2013 and I did the same with her. Then Steven joined the crew and again I mentored him.
I am proud to have mentored Davie, Grant, Julie and Steven, playing a key role in developing such fantastic coaches who went onto to produce some of the most successful transformations to come out of DMC Fitness. I look forward to helping others in the future.
