I was inspired to join the fitness industry some 20 years ago, after reflecting on the value and lessons I learned through working with a Personal Trainer of my own. I have since gone on to achieve a diploma in bio mechanics, and have opened two personal training studios.

My approach to training relies heavily on the fundamentals of Functional Training, incorporating movements from the activities of daily life.

I try to approach fitness as a lifelong behaviour modification where we have continuous improvement. I try to define my sessions as simple, challenging, and efficient with an emphasis on proper form and mobility. My favourite client is anyone with a goal and a willingness to work towards it!

I am a personal trainer with over 15 years experience in the fitness industry. I began my career working across multiple platinum level gyms, where through my unique techniques and outgoing personality I quickly amassed a large client base including people from a variety of ages, fitness goals and athletic ability.

My overwhelming success alongside my ambition to always better myself allowed me to achieve a life-long goal by opening my own personal training studio in 2010. Enabling me to use my expertise in health, fitness and exercise to benefit my local community.

During my 15 years I have seen a lot of technological advances, FADS & new phenoms come and go, however the core fundamental principles of exercise are still the same. My philosophy revolves around making exercise enjoyable for all.

“Daniel is an excellent personal trainer and I’ve seen real results since training with him. The studio is great and the fact it can be booked out exclusively meant I could carry on training during Covid.”



One of the primary reasons you should work with one of our personal trainers is that we can help educate you on all aspects of health, fitness and exercise. Knowledge is power and when it comes to your fitness goals, having an understanding of what is required for you to reach those goals is incredibly empowering.


Training with a friend, family or co-worker can help motivate and keep you on track with your training goals. 

Our joint training packages allow you to enjoy the benefit of working with a personal trainer, whilst sharing the costs. 

“Steve’s approach to personal training is fantastic, as he understands my fitness goals and designs workouts to make sure I hit them. Would highly recommend RiseNW5.”
