Core Strength

Boxing and strength training will increase your abdominal strength and raise metabolism which burns fat for energy from the stomach, butt and thighs.

Boxing Training

Learn the correct boxing technique to improve the quality of your fitness workouts.

I will teach you – boxing stance, movement, punch technique, combinations, how to use a boxing bag, pad work and more.


Functional Fitness

Functional fitness training will build strength and power head to toe and improve your posture, mobility and athletic performance.

Types of Training

The forms of exercise I teach to help clients reach training goals.

dumbbell bench press

Circuit Training

Circuits develop muscular and cardiovascular endurance for building lean, toned muscle.

Workouts consist of 3 to 6 exercises performed in succession with little to no rest between exercises.

Light weights and body-weight exercises are used with an even balance between push and pull exercises.

The workouts are time efficient requiring no more than 20 minutes in duration. You may bench mark your fitness by recording the time taken to complete a circuit.

Forming the core of your gym program – resistance training strengthens your bones, tendons, ligaments, connective tissue and builds lean muscle.

Your muscle groups and joints are stretched throughout their full range of motion. This improves posture and mobility.

My programs use compound, free weight exercises (not gym machines) that target multiple muscle groups at once and teaches your body to move in the way it was intended to.

Weightlifting workouts build your max strength – allowing you to perform muscular endurance workouts like circuits easier.

cardio training

Cardiovascular Training

Circuit training, boxing, running, swimming, skipping and bodyweight exercises like burpees are cardio activities.

High Intensity Interval Training (H.I.I.T) is the best form of cardio  that will improve endurance and burns fat faster than slower forms of exercise like jogging.

HIIT also preserves muscular strength and power gains.

Abdominal Leg Raises

Core Workouts

For complete development of the core musculature workouts need to work the core through

1. Flexion
2. Lateral Flexion
3. Rotation
4. Hip Extension
5. Stabilization

My programs include exercises that target each action. In addition to your strength training you will only need 2 short core workouts per week to develop the core muscle groups.


“I’ve been training with Dayne for the last 6 months and have no hesitation in recommending him – regardless of your level of fitness or gender.

As an absolute beginner when I started, it was important that I learnt the correct techniques from the outset – to ensure the risk of injury was minimised as my level of weights/fitness began to increase. Dayne’s emphasis on correct technique and attention to detail combined with his expert guidance has ensured that this has occurred – and will continue to occur.

Dayne is also very personable and patient – but also very honest in his feedback which I have particularly appreciated. I am also continuously impressed with the amount of personal time Dayne spends on both developing and improving his personal training content and instructional videos – all for the benefit of both his current and potential future clients.

Unfortunately Dayne is going to have to put up with me for a little longer!”

“I like training with Dayne because there’s no bullshit.

Each session he pushes you hard, hard enough to make investing in a personal trainer worth it, and he lets you know when you’re dragging your feet.

He’s been developing his training programme for years now and you can tell. Rather than doing what many trainers do and watch while you do reps on a machine, his workouts (depending on your goals) combine high energy cardio workouts paired with heavy lifting sessions. 

His workouts are interesting and technique focused. He records the details of your session and pushes you to increase your last workouts weight or rep count in your next session. And for the timed cardio challenges he records times and logs them on his leader board so you can see how your progressing vs his other clients. It’s great because you can easily see how much progress you’re making.

As a person he’s high energy, easy going, but most importantly likeable. That’s good, especially when it’s easy to hate your trainer when he makes you do squats on squats on squats! I’m tall and slim, and in the six months I’ve been training with Dayne I can see a huge difference in my physique. If you’re looking to gain muscle, get fit, and be challenged, then I recommend you get in touch with him.

Highly recommended!”

“I have been training with Dayne for 6 months. He is great at motivating and is very considerate of his customer’s goals when introducing his workout plans.

He tailored the workout plan to suit my goals, introducing me to high intensity cardio workouts that target different muscle groups and setting out a weekly plan so that I can coordinate which parts of my body I target and allows me to plan my recovery periods.

Prior to training with Dayne I suffered ongoing knee and shoulder joint pain while performing lifting activities. Once I started training with Dayne, these injuries have been greatly reduced.

Dayne puts great focus on using the correct technique and is also very patient and provides great feedback.

I would recommend Dayne to anyone who is looking to get fit or work towards a particular goal. He is organised, adaptable and will make a fitness plan to suit your goals, all the while motivating you to achieve them.”

“I have been training with Dayne for 18 months and highly recommend him.

He is professional, friendly and passionate about his job. When training with Dayne, you get regular newsletter and tons of videos to improve yourself.

He has tailored a training programme that perfectly met my needs. I never got bored as he would regularly change exercises (he even got me to do some boxing) and he always came-up with his famous “challenges” (some of them pushed me beyond what I thought I would be capable of).

During the sessions he is encouraging, motivating and will not hesitate to push you when you get a bit too lazy during your workouts 🙂

And that worked ! I’m now fitter, much happier with my body, stronger and gained confidence and motivation.”

“During this period I saw notable changes to my physique, strength, endurance, and posture to name a few. I have also learnt how to perform an array of barbell and dumbbell exercises as our training focused on mastering the essential free weight compound exercises. As a result I have also gained confidence in my ability in the gym and feel I am able to guide myself without an instructor present.

Dayne also invests a lot of his free time into up skilling both himself and clients outside of the gym through email and a private facebook group – he shares informative articles and videos covering nutrition, exercise technique, and also answers questions.

To conclude – I have enjoyed working through Daynes enjoyable exercise routines and highly endorse him for his personal training services, his health and fitness philosophy, and constant drive toward self-improvement.”

“Dayne has helped me to retrain my attitude so that I can push my body even further. I chose to work with Dayne because his profile showcased a lot of exercises that I purposely avoided. I knew I would be in for a challenge. The passion and knowledge that he has allows me to easily trust his approach and the program he affords me. His consistent feedback, whether it relates to correct technique or pure motivation, during the one-on-one sessions sticks with you.”
