After several injuries, I hired Aled to take the thinking out of my own training and to have some accountability. From online coaching, I received what I wanted plus a hell of a lot more. I now love training again and I'm very grateful.Nick Tuckett
I'm no stranger to personal training or online training but as a busy mum of 2, with various animals and a hubby who works away, I've finally found my perfect match. Dan listens and understands that I enjoy my food, my drink and that I'm often tired and stressed. Still get fantastic sustainable results. Life changing coach.Michelle Meears-White
I have been with coach Dan for over a year and have seen some amazing results. He has not only been able to help me lose weight, become leaner, but he also helped train me through my first London Marathon. Together we smashed the goal set. Amazing results, unlike any other format I've tried.David Mason
I'd known Dan and about DMF for a while before I actually took the plunge. I'd been struggling with my nutrition and going round in circles for a good six months. From the get go, Dan treated me like an actual person and rather than throwing a set of numbers at me and leaving me to it, he worked closely with me on everything from sleep quality to dealing with social situations. Absolutely invaluable.Karyn McIntosh
Coaching with Aled at DMF has been everything that was missing from previous personal training experiences. Not only have I got stronger and changed shape, I feel supported, have made friends and gained confidence to make improvements in other areas of my life (and when they affected my focus Aled has been awesome at adapting my coaching around it).Charlotte Doughton
Joining Team DMF, and specifically being coached by Dan Mitchell, was singularly the best decision I've made in moving forwards in my fitness goals. Not content with delivering a one size fits all standard approach, Dan has looked at my very unique set of circumstances and helped me in many aspects of life and health and set me on a path of long term sustainable goal.Jay Dunk
I started online coaching with Dan in November 2016 in preparation for getting married in July 2017.
I made significant weight loss in the first few weeks and felt a lot better within myself.
In that time, I've lost weight but Dan has also helped me with a variety of things, I've gained strength and improved form, also sorted out a bad shoulder I'd had for a while, Dan helped me source a brilliant physio in Aberdeen.
He's helped me to understand my body and my behaviour around food and how to control it.
He's helped me create a healthy balance and helped me realise you can't be perfect all the time and that life does happen and it's okay to enjoy yourself and overindulge now and again.
He's put up with my meltdowns when I've eaten too much chocolate or cereal, reassured me and helped me see the bigger picture!
But most importantly he played a huge part in how amazing I felt on my wedding day!
And he's told me to eat all the food while I'm on honeymoon.. Awesome coach!
Thank you Dan!Justine Allan
After years of following various workouts and diets whilst going nowhere, I was recommended DMF by a fellow gym goer. Over the last 8 months, I have seen my biggest change ever, both in body composition and strength. In fact, at nearly 40 years old, I am now leaner than at any previous time in my life. The support and guidance given by DMF has been invaluable, both in relation to nutrition and programming but also for motivational support and education. I cannot recommend DMF enough.Wes Anderton
Although I was only with Dan for a short while I can honestly say it was one of the most educational experiences I have ever had with a coach. I have learnt more in 4 months about nutrition and training with him than in the last 20 years. Dan has a fantastic approach and makes sure that you feel supported every step of the way and nothing is ever to much trouble. He encourages you to try new things and clearly explains the benefits and the results he gets speaks for them selves. Every little detail is specifically tailored to your needs and body type as well as life style. He has created a community of clients that help each other and share experiences and ideas.Steve Savva
I'm really new to #teamDMF but I already know that it's the best decision I could have made. After being with a PT who ripped me off for a truly horrific amount of money per month & breaking my vertebrae with a dangerous squat, my confidence in the PT profession was destroyed. But then l, I spoke to Dan who reassured me that good caring PTs still exist. Not only is he super supportive of my back injury, he genuinely cares about your holistic health, taking the time to thoughtfully & kindly send resources to help with all aspects of life. Team DMF is the place to go for, genuine, supportive, quality lifestyle coaching.Kirstie Harvey
Beginning of Jan I looked like the left! I spent December not training and binge eating. January was my month. Then I ended up doing a comp and thanks to Dan Mitchell he got me in great shape! Such great shape that just a couple of wks after comp I did this photo shoot! Credit to Dan for getting me there and then making me want to join him in the PT/coach journey of lifeBecky Bean
I approached Dan for help after struggling with my weight for my whole life and having tried just about every single diet and exercise plan out there. During the year and a bit we've been working together I've lost just over 60lb, learned to enjoy and feel confident in the gym, and even cycled all the way from from London to Brighton!
But more than that, his consistent support and encouragement has helped me to establish an exercise routine that fits into my life. As well as eating habits that are healthy and sustainable, still allowing me to socialise and and enjoy my favourite foods. I am stronger and fitter than I have ever been, and know that not only am I going to be able to lose the rest of my weight, but that thanks to Dans approach I don't need to worry about regaining it.Anna Johnson
Before I started coaching with dan I had been following a paleo style diet and doing circuit training. I really didn't enjoy exercise and wasn't enjoying what I was doing in the gym.
Since being with Dan I've learnt that nothing is restricted no food is bad for you, and that you can enjoy exercise and it is not a punishment. I now train 3 times a week, and sometimes do a cardio session a week if I want.
My body shape has changed massively, and I love where I'm going.
I've been working with Dan for about five months and it's been a revelation. What's been so helpful is that Dan doesn't just tell me what to eat and what to do - he understands why I have been eating the way I have and how other areas of my life (such as exercises, work and sleep) affect it. By addressing these areas and issues I genuinely think I'm finally building better habits for life! I haven't always agreed with Dan, he's challenged me, but I'm learning to trust the process and am seeing the results. Working with Dan isn't a quick fix, but it's the best decision I could make for my health. And he's also built a great community of people who support you every step of the way.Rachael Parkman
It is amazing what can be achieved remotely!
I was a chubby mum who had gained weight during pregnancy. I was out of shape and lacking the confidence and feeling depressed about how I looked. I desperately wanted to return to my pre-pregnancy body. Having children to look after made it near impossible for me to get to a gym and work out. I decided to give DMF a go and I haven’t looked back since!
DMF has been absolutely brilliant for me. I have been educated on nutrition. I have regular skype conversations and 24/7 support. I have a programme that is completely tailored to my needs to ensure I can achieve the best results. These coaches actually care about the people they guide. I was given a personal nutrition plan as well as home workouts to fit in around my busy schedule. The coaches really listened and adapted to what I needed. In 6 months with DMF I was able to lose all the baby weight and a bit more (2 stone), all whilst sill having a life and enjoying the food and drink I liked.
They gave me back my confidence and empowered me to make better choices and to maintain my weight. I have met a wonderful network of people who encourage and support each other. I feel part of something special. I have even undertaken the 3 peaks challenge with a DMF team something I never thought I would be capable of.
I would highly recommend them. It is money well spent. The results speak for themselves.Laura Keith
After 3 years of having a personal trainer in the gym I made the move to online training with Aled 10 months ago and haven't looked back since. The transformation in my mindset enthusiasm knowledge body shape and overall strength and fitness has been truly amazing. . Not only does Aled go the extra mile and help with advice and practical help on my non gym named fitness goals but i think of him not only as a coach but as a friend too. Can't wait to see what the next 10 months at Dan Mitchell fitness will bring!Sarah Marchbank
Coaching with Dan has shown me that I can lose weight in a way that's sustainable. I've also felt very supported when I found out I had an under active thyroid, ensuring my training took this in to account. I personally think Dan has gone above and beyond to help me towards my goal.Sarah Richards
