Overall it has been another excellent week.
I was in London again, attending the quarterly meeting of Andy Harrington’s Professional Speakers Academy. More on that later.
As a company we delivered 75 hours of personal training / coaching this week. I was away and Grant was off due to being unwell. These numbers will pick up over next 2 weeks.
My own training has been great, totaling 20 hours. On Monday I filmed my most up to date warm up and activation routines and a follow along workout for our clients. I have to say it was great FUN. All the content is now in post production and will be ready for sharing in the coming weeks.
Tuesday was my long coaching day and then after a quick shift on Wednesday and a haircut I was at Edinburgh airport. I got a lot of my admin done and started reading a new book.
The majority of my training was done in the hotel room this week. I took my ball, roller and bands and still managed to put a descent shift in. Lots of push ups, squats and burpees and many rounds of shadow boxing.
All in all my training was on point even though I had to rearrange my room a bit .
Thursday I spent the day with the founder of Brand Rebel Michelle Coops. Together we are finalising DMC Fitness’ rebrand.
Here is my review of our time together.
This is just the begging of our work I’m suitably impressed with Michelle and excited about the next phases of our professional growth and development together.
Since I started my entrepreneurial journey in 2006 I’ve always valued developing my skills continuously, while creating my business and growing my brand.
The more time passed by, the more I learned that it’s essential to stop, stand still and deep dive into a review of the foundation blocks of any successful brand.
The dream, the mission, the core values, the philosophy of the brand, the business, the customer experience must all be reviewed and re-calibrated. My business is no different.
As part of my innovation and rebrand of DMC Fitness I brought in Michelle Coops, founder of ‘Brand Rebel’ to review and coach me in re-calibrating all essential components on my brand.
I was drawn to Michelle because she stands out, communicates in a way I find inspiring and in language I relate to. I’ve always been a Rebel myself and done my own thing. It’s a perfect fit.
I received expert questioning, deep analysis and considered coaching that guided me on a process of reflecting on where I’ve been, but more importantly, where I am now and where my brand is going next. We created a vision for my brand’s growth and future industry domination.
Michelle is intellectual, funny, intensely passionate and has some serious skills. She is a person who walks her talk and stands for what she believes in.
She helped me to recognise my entrepreneurial success to date, and more importantly, to fall in love with my business all over again. All this during our first few sessions together.
Michelle thank you for bringing the magic back into my brand!

From Friday to Sunday I was surrounded by the amazing group of Maverick Misfits that is the Professional Speakers Academy.
It was a truly incredible weekend. We learned some of the most up to date and successful digital marketing techniques being used right now.
We were taught how to create and deliver a client case study and part of the Expert Positioning Story.
We got a full day to deliver content under the watchful eyes of the ACE Team.
At night we socialised enjoying food together and a few drinks. In the picture below I am with my Dutch friends.
On Saturday and Sunday morning I lead a group DMC Fitness training session and the feedback was MAGICAL…
Here are some of the personal training reviews
“This is the most enjoyable and comprehensive approach to health and fitness that I have ever experienced. I love DMC” – Barbara Armstrong.
“Expect an amazing workout with the incredibly talented Davie McConnachie! This man brings awesome energy to each session which in itself is so motivating, and his ability to combine physical & emotional fitness is so unique and powerful!
I loved working my body while working my mind too & it set me up for my best days!
Thank you so much Davie, you are such a star & are truly transforming lives in such an empowering way.” – Laura Tynan
“What a guy, what a soul. Davie is an incredible human being with wealth of knowledge. Without a doubt one of the best experiences I have ever had when it comes to training. A true warrior and humble guy who will push you to the next level.” – Norik Koczarian
“Having known Davie for a while now, I had already gotten to know his remarkable personality and extraordinary vision on physical, mental and emotional fitness.
However, the moment I experienced his training myself, I was absolutely blown away by his knowledge, methodology and power to inspire people to bring about change.
Davie creates pure magic when he gets into the zone. I witnessed how he helped people grow instantly, through movement.
His number one talent is, however, not to move people physically only, but even more so emotionally. Working with Davie is impactful, memorable to say the least and most of al: FUN.
I highly recommend him and DMC Fitness to anybody who wants to lead a more fulfilling life and perform at a higher level.” – Michelle Coops
It’s great to given such great praise. Everyone loves praise.
This review is my favourite one of them all. Kerry (one of the coaches) came to me on the Saturday afternoon to say thanks and it was a very touching and emotional moment. The core of my soul, all I want to do is help people see that there is MAGIC in Fitness. We both cried and shared a loving embrace. I’ve turned another light on.
“I cannot thank DMC fitness enough for the most motivational training session of my life.
To be honest, initially, I was hesitating. I am 18 stone, 40k bust, uncontrolled diabetic, haven’t exercised for 3 years, with a sciatica back injury from a previous incompetent personal trainer.
I’ve fallen of the diet band wagon a million times and really had just given up. I was the person that paid for gym membership and never turned up and when I did turn up I’d be watching the clock for when I could leave!!!!
That was before I met Davie McConnachie from DMC. After the first session I was totally shocked at how much I enjoyed the session….that’s NEVER happened before.
DMC provides a very unique service, that has to be experienced to be believed. It’s more than just a physical workout, it was mentally uplifting. I felt like I could achieve anything.
One of great things is that it’s all at the right pace for you and your ability. Even with 30 people in the room, I was well looked after. A bonus for me was that I wasn’t left walking like John Wayne.
As a result I went back again, 6:30am and DMC took me to another level. Due to Davies vision, commitment and passion. I can now see the light at the end of the tunnel. I can take control and win, so I am no longer hiding or scared about the future of my health.
Thank you Davie and DMC for helping to find me again.” – Kerry
I love being part of PSA it’s a massive part of my professional and personal life.
I enjoyed a total of 3 hours of meditation. My journaling and morning routine was out of sorts so I am focusing on that more this week.
Food was 60/40 I took all my supplements and my protein each day. Lunches were mostly raw food salads from M&S then at night I picked as best I could enjoyed a few drinks and the odd desert.
Flick the pictures to see more.
To be fair I’ve been chasing my tail since I got back and I will catch it soon.
This week my focus is on optimising my nutrition again, improving my morning P.E.P, training hard, coaching with passion, pride and purpose, and enjoying my creative tasks.
I have my family commitments on top of this and my own personal and professional education. It’s super fast paced and that’s why I must be organised and have my sh*t together.
Things to look forward to…
Spring is on the way and the clocks are changing, meaning lighter and longer days. I’m hoping we get a great summer again this year.
In the near future we are launching the DMC Mindset & Movement Podcast. This is a really exciting project Colin and I are working on. We are in the process of creating a media suite and setting up a gray area for the podcast. I’ve already booked some great guests.
That’s all for this week.
Until the next time.
