''You completely changed my derby career and made me stronger and way fitter than I could have ever imagined myself to be, and I am eternally grateful to you. Thank you.''
Danielle Williams, Roller Derby Champion
''I just wanted to say a huge, huge THANK YOU for all your help this season! This has been the first time in about 5 years that I have been able to make it through the season healthy, and I attribute that to both you and Ben for all your help and guidance. This has been the most enjoyable athletics seasons I’ve ever had, so thank you so much for playing a big part in that!
I won’t lie, before I started training with you I really wasn’t the biggest fan of doing gym work, but now I find myself looking forward to every session. Your energy and excitement for training is next level which makes training super fun and often means it is the highlight of my day!''
Kate Spencer, Distance Runner, Australian Representative
''I’ve been training with Danny consistently over the last 5 years and can confidently say that his knowledge and passion for my progression in strength and agility has not only improved my skateboarding but also my overall heath.
In that time I’ve had multiple ankle injuries, some requiring surgery and also sustained knee and elbow ligament injuries just due to the rough nature that skateboarding can have on the body. But with his personal programs we’ve managed to not only just recover from the injuries but strengthen them to a point where they are in better health pre-injury while always having your motivation and overall heath at the top of his priorities.''
Juan Onekawa, Skateboarder
''Danny James has gone above and beyond in his role as my strength and conditioning coach. I have been running seriously for several years, but it was only in the last 6 months when I met Danny James, who was highly spoken of by my coach (Ben Liddy).
Since then, I have seen Danny once a month for a strength and conditioning program to supplement my running. These sessions with Danny are often the highlight of the month, not only for the variety they provide, but also for his enthusiastic and logical take on strength conditioning work.
It would be easy for any coach to write a program and send you off on your own until the next program rolls through, however, Danny is always in contact whether it be to ask him a question about a particular session or even just him checking in with you about how everything is going.
It’s safe to say that in conjunction with regular athletics sessions, strength and conditioning has played a significant role in taking my running to the next level these last few months. I have run PB after PB and most importantly kept my body injury free.
Danny is incredibly knowledgeable on the topic of strength and conditioning and actively explains why he assigns a specific exercise rather than just showing you how. He is an all round great bloke and I look forward to many more years of working with him.
I definitely would recommend him to train with: whether you want to stay injury free, supplement a sport or just generally want to improve your strength Danny is your man.''
Thomas Davies, Champion Middle Distance Runner
“Nobody cares how much you know, until they know how much you care”- Theodore Roosevelt. Whether you are an aspiring athlete or just getting into training, Danny James cares tremendously about everyone he works with and his knowledge in helping you reach your potential is second to none. I have been fortunate to have the opportunity to not only learn from Danny, but to coach alongside him. He’s truly one of the best coaches. Motivational, passionate, disciplined and hungry to get better. I often wonder what makes someone successful in business and in life. Is it a natural talent or learned skill? In Danny’s case it is a combination of both.
Danny uses his knowledge and expertise to guide every individual toward their unique long-term goal by breaking the journey into manageable parts. He emphasises patience and consistency as a pathway for sustainable success. He motivates and educates you to focus your energy on where you will gain the greatest returns through an individual approach. Every session is conducted with purpose and care as Danny’s utilises his unique ability to take theory and translate it into a practice that challenges you as an individual. Danny is not a trainer but a coach determined to renew, nurture and sustain your enthusiasm and love for enhancing your own long term health. His energy and enthusiasm are contagious and builds confidence in his clients to believe in their unique ability.''
Sophie Boyle, Physiotherapist, Representative Hockey Player
“I first went to see Danny after about my twentieth round of physiotherapy for a stubborn rotator cuff injury that I had been struggling with for years. I knew that physio alone wasn't enough in this case, and that I had to build up strength in my body in order to prevent the injury from reoccurring. I had zero experience with working out or using gym equipment, but Danny's demeanour and professionalism helped me feel comfortable throughout the learning process. Danny was extremely patient with my lack of experience and my with my injury, so I was able to learn and build up strength at a pace that ensured I was keeping good form and not re-injuring my shoulder. My time working one-on-one with Danny has given me the knowledge and confidence to now train on my own without fear of re-injury. It's now been about two years since I first started training with Danny and I have not have to go back to physio yet! I will always be grateful for Danny's compassion, patience, and expertise in helping me overcome my injury and evolve into a person that prioritises my physical health.''
''I came to Danny on recommendation of my Physio and running coach Ben Liddy. With a history of overuse injuries we sat down together and planned out a simple, effective routine that supported my running goals. No really heavy lifting, just consistent targeted activities that build strength and conditioning which helped my achieve my sub 3 hour marathon goal. I’d recommend Danny to anyone, not just because of his knowledge and expertise, but because he’s genuinely interested in getting to know you and designing programs that meet your needs.''
Marc Bennie, Champion Distance Runner
''Deadlift Danny' James was the perfect coach to start me on my journey into strength. I was a skinny marathonner. I still do marathons, but now I run faster on less training miles because I'm strong. He's evidence based and always enthusiastic.
I moved to the UK but he's still checking in to see how I'm going and sharing tips. He's a beast. 100% recommend working with Danny for endurance sport.''
Al Houghton, Ultra Endurance Athlete
''I have known Danny for 8 years and I have been lucky enough to have worked with Danny as a personal trainer. Being a small business owner and personal trainer, I have all the typical issues with being busy with my business and family.
When my knee and shoulder pain started to hamper my training to the point I stopped, I turned to Danny to get his help as I am busy and struggle with time to write my own programs. Danny is someone who I respect highly and trust with my health so it was a no brainer.
With his knowledge I knew I was in good hands and being some what sceptic about online training (due to seeing the damage of poorly designed program that you can buy cheaply) I decided to give it a go and I have been able to get me back into training without pain and has been flexible when new issues arrive.
He has also educated me along the way and I have been able to help my own clients with what I've learnt.
The system is setup to take the thinking out of the training and just do what is required. I highly recommend Danny’s online training to anyone who needs help with training and doesn’t have the time to get to see him face to face or wants quality programming and and guidance.''
Matthew Loudon, Personal Trainer
''Weight lifting ftw! Blood sugar was below the threshold. This has only happened twice, both times the day after seeing you.''
