Yes, this is me – David Gordon. Thanks for wanting to find out a little about me,
Who is behind DHG Fitness?, what is it? and why should I be interested?
So, who is David Gordon? Does he actually work out? Is he qualified to help me?
Okay! here goes. I’m a qualified Personal Trainer and Lifestyle Coach and lover of healthy food and fitness from the UK. I help Dads aged 40+ shed their dad bods without diets so they can start flexing their newly toned muscle in the mirror, yeah!
My passion in life is to help others change by listening, answering their questions and then giving them the simple tools to succeed.
Why I started …
So why did I decide to start DHG Fitness?
Well, I’ve always been crazily into health & fitness, always telling people how to eat healthier and get more exercise into their routines.
Hek, I even got qualified as a Personal Trainer / Gym Instructor many years ago and enjoy pushing my physical limits (even with the occasional back injury!) It’s addictive!
I’ve never had a problem with self-motivation, and want to make sure I can always keep up with my kids, and not be the dad on the side who cannot join in.
Whilst regularly seeing the questions people were asking on social media, it became obvious that exercise, fitness and weight loss were real talking points.
Everyone started asking me questions about how to lose weight? how to build muscle? or what the best exercise are?
Why did I want to help Dads improve their image / shed their Dad bods?
Simple. I’m a dad of 50+, and I’m fitter now than I ever was. I knew early on that I never wanted to end up in mid-life with any serious physical/mental health issues around my weight.
I see it so much every day. In the news. On the streets. Sadly, I can’t help everyone,
When a dad reaches out to me for help and they see positive changes, I know I’m doing my job well and I’ve helped improve that persons life in many ways.
This is why I wanted to start my own fitness business.
It’s a busy life …
I’m a husband, dad of two boys (two always hungry boys!) owner of 1 black cat, Cinders and some fish, which Cinders regularly enjoys watching close up!
When I’m not coaching, I’m helping to run a busy family and a fitness blog,
I’m also regular contributor over on Quora. If you want to see the types of questions I answer, you can check out my Quora profile here > David Gordon on Quora
Staying fit …
Let’s face it, when you look good, you feel good, right! Keeping fit does not have to mean hitting the gym for 3 hours a day, whilst wearing the latest in fashion & tech trends.
All you need is a pair of trainers! Get outdoors, breathe in some fresh air and move that body … feels good huh!
Have I competed in any major fitness events? no, but I have climbed the 3 largest peaks in the UK. I love hiking & martial arts too! I’ve done Judo, Karate, Thai-Boxing & more recently Kung Fu. One of my constant goals is HIGH KICKS ….. I just wish I could do those amazing kicks I see other people demonstrating ………. J E A L O U S !
It all starts here …
Healthy Food & Fitness …. hence DHG Fitness was born!
