Dave Middleton

Personal Trainer & Sports Therapist

I have been in the fitness industry since 1988. I am a former Army Physical Training Instructor, British Weightlifting Association Instructor, Level 3 Personal Trainer and Level 5 Sports Massage and Sports Injuries Therapist.

I incorporate over 30 years’ experience into every session that I deliver. As well as the physical instruction, I also draw on my background in Sports Massage and Injuries when devising tailor made programmes for each and every client.

After discussing your aims e.g. weight loss, sports specific, general fitness, competitive conditioning to name a few, together we will devise a programme taking into account your physical ability from day one through to your ultimate objective.

Personal Training comes in a variety of formats and styles. I draw ideas from a wide range of these including Olympic Lifting, Kettlebells, Functional Fitness, TRX, Low Resistance Body Sculpting, Bodyweight Exercise to name a few.

I regularly witness people using the wrong exercise programme (and sometimes with bad form), to try to achieve their goals, but recruiting the services of an experienced Personal Trainer like myself, these mistakes can easily be avoided leading to faster, realistic and attainable and above all SAFE results.

‘Dave has helped me with a longstanding shoulder injury in the past and got my lifting in the gym again. Now I am 7 months pregnant and he’s been a star with some core exercises to support my back along with some massage techniques. I’m SO much better and still able to use the gym during my pregnancy, I couldn’t recommend him more! SH’

‘I’ve always used Dave as his service, treatment and knowledge is the best. He’s always fixed my injuries and I will always use him again. AS’

‘I have been trained by Dave for the last four years, he is excellent, very patient and encouraging. My level of fitness has improved significantly thanks to Dave. GB’

‘I have used Dave Middleton for my Achilles Tendinitis where I used him for sports massage. I have always found him to be very knowledgeable and he always explains what he is about to do exceptionally well. I also had a quad strain after playing football recently and Dave massaged this for me then taped it up which was great and certainly helped ease the pain. RH’
