Hi, I’m David Hields. I’m a qualified advanced personal trainer and level 3 trainer / assessor. In other words I teach clients in the gym and I teach people to become personal trainers. I’ve been exercising and weight training for over 20 years and have also been writing and studying psychology for most of that time, all of which has helped me and my clients achieve results we can be proud of.
I’ve helped skinny guys gain lean muscle for the first time in their lives. I’ve helped overweight guys lose stomach fat and replace it with washboard abs. I’ve helped “hard gainers” like myself get results that won’t just disappear if having a life occasionally means you can’t make it to a workout or eat as you intended. And I’ve helped women to reduce their body fat and “tone up” so they look lean, toned and sexy!

Or if you want to know more about me, keep reading, because although I now know how to help someone get in shape and have a great six pack in a few weeks, I did it the slow way. Real slow! I started to work out when I left school with no fitness goal to aim for, I just enjoyed going to the gym and I didn’t have a workout or diet to guide me.
For several years I relied on getting the occasional piece of advice from the guys that were clearly getting better results than I was, which I followed without actually knowing what I was doing or why it was (or wasn’t) working.
After a while I looked pretty good. I had muscles, I was toned, and I was now the guy getting asked for advice all the time. Very often I couldn’t give accurate answers though. I had a workout that worked, I had a diet that worked, and I had a good physique. But I had no idea why I was having more success than other people or how to help them. Plus I started to get a lot of injuries and I had no idea why.
I decided it was finally time to figure out exactly what it was I was doing to have a physique that got me so much attention, as well as why I was getting so many injuries it prevented me from training as intensely as I wanted to. I went right back to the beginning and read everything I could find on weight training and fitness and completed my advanced personal trainer qualification, which includes nutrition, kinesiology, cardiovascular fitness, resistance training and exercise technique. I also passed a trainer / assessor qualification so I can teach people to become personal trainers themselves.
But that was the easy part.
The hard part was going to the gym and forcing myself to lower all of the weights I’d previously lifted so I could concentrate on correct technique and form. Some of the changes I made seemed counter-intuitive, they were the opposite of what I’d always been told and believed, but it wasn’t long before the results spoke for themselves.
Now I’m stronger than ever, I look better than ever, and since I made those changes I haven’t had a single injury!
I wasted years before I finally figured it all out and in the process I did just about everything wrong. But the good news is that you don’t have to, because whatever problem you’re having or whatever mistake you’re making, I’ve been there!
I created this site for one reason – to help people who make the effort to exercise and improve their diet get the rewards they want and deserve as quickly as possible.
