* I trained with Darren 3 times a week for almost 3 years until I had to move back to the UK. At the outset, regular gym attendance did not come naturally to me: I found the places intimidating and lacked any real goals or means to achieve them. I was enthusiastic, but on my own had no chance of sustaining a training program.
Darren provided so much. His friendly manner made me feel welcome and at ease in the gym. And the professionalism with which he established targets with me and then set a program to achieve them gave me huge confidence. Each session was pre-planned so that time wasn’t wasted and the exercises properly targeted. He introduced each exercise with careful explanation, a gentle start and an unbending insistence on form so that I never had the chance of developing the bad habits that might otherwise have lead to injury.
However, he wasn’t always nice – once the introductions were over and the lessons learned he pushed me – and then some. As a consequence I covered ground in those sessions that I wouldn’t have believed possible. Never aggressive, he had a way of knowing what I could do even if I did not believe it myself and of giving me the confidence to achieve what seemed outrageous.
It is a huge tribute to Darren that over the years of guiding me to the very edges of my capacity I never once sustained an injury. And how I looked forward to the sessions! The feeling of satisfaction that came with growing myself Darren’s way was beyond description. If you are looking for a trainer today then you could not do better.
