DAVID SLADE

Personal Trainer, Level III

I have always been considered a “sporty” kid but being “sporty” didn’t make me healthy. I was malnourished, clinically underweight, and not healthy at all, but in my late teens, I got into Martial Arts. This was shortly followed by the beginning of my love for the gym, which helped me to take my body and my health more seriously.

When it comes to your fitness, I think we need to start by looking at your current fitness regime. You need to have a good answer for why you’re doing each particular exercise. If you can’t think of a good reason for why you’re doing something, it might be time for a change! This is where I start with my clients and then we build programs and regimes together that best fit you.

BEST PIECE OF ADVICE HE'S EVER RECEIVED:

“The fitness & nutrition world is a breeding group for obsessive-compulsive behavior. The irony is that many things people worry about simply have no impact on results either way, and therefore aren’t worth an ounce of concern.” – Alan Aragon

FAVOURITE WORKOUT SONG:

"What Would You Do" - The Dogg Pound

FAVOURITE CHEAT MEAL:

Pizza, but I don’t believe in cheat meals. However, I believe it’s important to understand what your goal is and what food is required to help you achieve it. “Avoid food avoidance”
