I don’t normally leave reviews but I HAVE to leave a review for Darrell, he has completely changed my physique, gaining a tonne of muscle, taught me so much and now I genuinely enjoy my gym sessions where as before I was worried about even entering one. I can’t recommend or thank him enough. By far the best trainer I’ve had in the area 💪

Darrell is really good at his job as a PT. He is patient, supportive, cheerful, enthusiastic, knowledgeable, a great listener and always offering advice and guidance on how to improve and do things better. He has a knack of finding the right balance between allowing you to go at your own pace while also pushing you enough to stretch and strengthen yourself. Personally, I am not great at people telling me what to do(!), but with the respect I have for Darrell’s approach and his professional and personable style of training, I have really benefited from my sessions with him. Thanks Darrell.

Darrell’s level of attention to detail and professionalism is impressive. I never anticipated enjoying training this much, having spent a lifetime keeping fit and active, by my own means.. I now realise the value of such positive reinforcement and support. He is thorough and patient and inspires you to make the most amount of effort and work as hard as you can. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him. A great listener and teacher.
I've been seeing Darrell for a number of years now and for various reasons. He's everything you'd want from a PT, knowledgeable,affable and professional,couldn't recommend him highly enough.

I've been training with Darrell for nearly a year. When starting out he really paid attention to what I wanted to focus on and since then I've become a lot more confident lifting big weights. He is also mindful of injuries and progresses you in a way that ensures you don't overdo it.

I’ve been training with Darrell for over a year now and I couldn’t be happier with the results. I have hypermobility and he’s been absolutely brilliant to work around my limitations due some past injuries. Since we started in 2022 I’ve lost a lot of weight and I feel amazing and stronger than ever.

I approached Darrell at the start of the year because I hit a brick wall wandering around the gym with no plan or structure. Darrell helped me to lose 7kg and go from an unfit smoker to getting fit enough to complete the national 3 peaks challenge! My program is now all on the dw holistics app and it’s so convenient. Every new program Darrell supplies me is catered for my goals but also he adapts it to suit my needs. I’m already looking months ahead from now imagining my future progress. I think about the gym everyday and I’m always logging my calories and taking accountability for what I do just from learning and taking advice from Darrell. The best thing I done was ask Darrell to be my coach. Otherwise I’d have probably given up and taken months out from the gym like usual!

managing work/health balance

It’s crucial to remember that even in the midst of this hectic lifestyle, incorporating exercise can have profound benefits for both our physical health and stress management. It’s about making small, manageable changes and recognising that prioritising our health is an investment in our overall quality of life. So, while it may be tough, carving out time for exercise is a vital step towards a healthier and more balanced life. This is where a personal trainer in Petts Wood can be a real help.

During your time at DW Holistic Fitness, you will have access to a variety of classes and training options tailored to your specific goals. From high-intensity interval training to Massage therapy sessions, there is something for everyone. You will be guided you through each workout, ensuring proper form and technique

What kind of physical exercise is best for us?

For people short on time, high-intensity interval training (HIIT) is often considered the most efficient and effective form of exercise. HIIT workouts involve short bursts of intense activity followed by brief periods of rest or lower-intensity exercise. This method can provide significant cardiovascular and metabolic benefits in a shorter amount of time compared to traditional steady-state cardio workouts. HIIT sessions can typically be completed in 20-30 minutes, making them highly accessible even in busy schedules. They are versatile and can be adapted to various fitness levels and preferences, making HIIT an excellent choice for those looking to maximise the benefits of exercise within limited time constraints.
