I take great pleasure when introducing a new fitness presenter and in some way hopefully helping them to reach their goals, this instance is no exception.
I have a strong feeling about the future of someone with the exceptional charisma and presence that David possesses. Showing a great understanding of all the necessary elements that go towards making a well-rounded and professional fitness presenter, David creates a harmonious experience filled with confidence and fun. This and many other fine attributes enhance his classes with an effortless ease, helping students to achieve their goals with a sense of comfort and familiarity.
I have no hesitation in referring David to a fitness event or organizer as I feel his natural skill, talent and personality would be the perfect addition to any event or team.

When I was asked to write a reference letter for David I was delighted!
I have known David for over 2 years. I am the Health & Fitness Manager at David Lloyd, Newcastle and David was employed as a freelance group fitness instructor. He was an instant hit his classes were dynamic and exciting and I believed all the participants enjoyed his style and commitment to teaching.
He came on board as a Personal Trainer and gained recognition immediately from his clients and other personal trainers as a knowledgeable, caring and understanding Personal Trainer.
I was sad to hear that David was leaving to start his own Fitness Studio, but at the same time excited for his own development. He was and still is missed by everyone.
He will be an asset to any team bringing enthusiasm, passion, value and commitment.
I would not hesitate to employ David; he is an absolute Gem!

I am writing to say thank you very much for presenting Step, Tae-Sculpt and Hi-Lo for us at Old Hall Country Club. The members here thoroughly enjoyed your new ideas and energizing routines and said you were ‘a breath of fresh air!
Personally the classes gave me a lift and especially being an instructor myself lots of new ideas to take to my classes, however my bottom has never been so sore!
I loved the Tae-Sculpt class and you did warn us that we may be sore the next day and we ALL were!
You look the part and are an inspiration to other instructors. You are so approachable and friendly; we need someone like you to teach here on a regular basis!
I hope I have to pleasure of seeing you again in the near future and to take part in one of your classes.

I have known David for over 2 years through working together at FX Leisure Health & Fitness Club. David came on board teaching one class and now has over 15 busy classes and runs our 3 fitness studios together with basing his very successful personal training business, BODYfx Fitness Training, here last year.
I find David very professional and passionate for his work and wish him well in all his fitness ventures abroad.
Alison Robinson Members Manager, FX Leisure, Gateshead
David has been a member of my fitness team for nearly 3 years now. He has the most explosive and dynamic talent I have ever seen. His classes are always full to capacity and has recently developed a new and exciting class for our timetable (tae-robics) and numbers have trebled in 3 weeks. This is all down to his hard work in creating what the members want here at David Lloyd Newcastle.
His personality always shines out and he is one of my most popular instructors.
He is reliable, fun and always smiling!

Dear David, I am writing to let you know how delighted we were with the two days of dance workshops held in Teesdale SSCo Partnership in October. The year 6 and year 7 children thoroughly enjoyed the hip-hop, street and martial arts dance sessions. It was great to see so many children engrossed in learning the dance movements and especially to see so many of the older boys engaged in the activities.
The feedback from the teachers has been very positive too and many have followed up the dance workshops in their own lessons at school. It has enabled some of the teachers to create dance routines for our partnership’s dance festivals. We look forward to the possibility of being able to work with you again in the future.

Dear David, just a quick note to thank you once again for the wonderful hip-hop/streetdance you ran at our school last week. The year 5 and 6 children have never been so motivated or as tired at the end of a dance lesson. The children have talked about the moves and practiced them further. I am sure we will see the moves at the end of term show and disco. I hope to work with you again soon in my new role as Teesdale Sports Co-ordinator.
