Daniel

Personal Trainer

Daniel’s specialty is pushing our male clients further than they thought they could go (see Daniel’s ‘House of Pain’ upstairs!). He is a fully qualified Personal Trainer, and joined Your Trainer in 2011. Born in 1982, Daniel was a good runner in school, especially on the 10,000m, where he competed at National level. When he was 13 years old, he made his first dumbbell and barbells by cementing sand and ballast to make his own ‘jua kali’ gym, and by 19 he was a junior body building contestant. Soon his friends and family were asking for his advice, and by default he started becoming a personal trainer. Starting as a pastime, sport is now Daniel’s profession, and his passion revolves around body building. He feels utterly passionate about helping his clients realize their full potential through adopting an active lifestyle, and see the positive changes it brings.
