CLIENT TESTIMONIALS

Since training with Danny I have found that I am more energised so I am able to do more, feel less tired and can get more achieved in the same time. Training at Danny's gym is perfect for me, no mirror-covered room or waiting to get on the next machine, faced by a variety of onlookers.

Jo James

Since I began training with Danny at the Secret Studio a few months ago, I have achieved more personal goals than I dreamt I could in a year let alone in a few months. I can't believe I can fit into my favourite clothes without the tight squeeze and run around with the kids without getting out of breath!

OUR SERVICES

Weight Loss and Body Fat Reduction
  • Weight Loss & Body Fat Reduction

I have helped many people to lose a great deal of weight. I prefer to speak in terms of "fat loss" rather than "weight loss". The objective should be to change your body composition so that you have less fat and more muscle.

As muscle weighs more than fat per cubic measurement weight loss alone should not be the sole measure of your success. The important results should be how your body looks, how your clothes fit, and how you feel.

Toning and Building Muscle
  • Toning & Building Muscle

A client will often specify that he or she wishes to either "tone" or "build" muscle.

More often than not women look to "tone" while men look to "build". By incorporating weight training (resistance training) techniques I can help you to tone or build muscle in order to improve the shape of your body.

Cardiovascular conditioning
  • Cardiovascular conditioning

Aerobic exercise will be at the core of any weight loss/fat loss program. Aerobic activity is often termed cardiovascular exercise. I encourage all of my clients to perform varying degrees of cardio-vascular training.

The goal here is usually to work in the range of 60-80% of maximum heart rate for 20-30 minutes three times a week. The benefits are numerous and include improved circulation and heart health as well as weight loss.

OUR SERVICES

Core strength, flexibility and balance
  • Core strength, flexibility & balance

Many people with back injuries may be told to increase their core strength. The added benefits can also include improved balance and stability, better posture as well as more toned abdominal muscles.

Every client is encouraged to work on their flexibility in an aim to prevent injury and improve mobility.

Sports Injury Rehabilitation
  • Sports Injury Rehabilitation

After physiotherapy or hospital treatment, mobility and strengthening work is regularly required to return an individual to full health.

I look to take over where a Physiotherapist leaves off. I have successfully helped to treat many injuries especially those affecting the knee, hip, shoulder and back. Each case is unique, please feel free to call or email to discuss your concerns.

>Boxing Skills
  • Boxing Skills

Have the chance to learn a new sport whilst improving many areas of your fitness.

Boxing is a sport that can work all over the body to achieve many different aims such as weight loss, core strength and muscular definition to name a few. Learn new non contact skills from a professional boxer.

THE GYM

If you would prefer to take away all of the things that people dread when they join a gym; compulsory monthly memberships, confusing equipment and intimidating gym buffs, then Fighting For Fitness Ltd is the place for you.

Fighting For Fitness Ltd is currently located in the heart of the South Bucks countryside. Only a few minutes drive from Beaconsfield, Burnham, Bourne End, Maidenhead and High Wycombe. The M40, M4 and M25 motorways are all very local making it easy to access whether on the way to or from work, or after dropping the kids off at school.

Fighting For Fitness Ltd is a haven away from the busy rush of large gyms and busy changing rooms. In this inviting atmosphere you can switch off and focus all your energy into reaching your goals and over coming challenges that you may have been unable to when training alone.

If you have never experienced a Personal Training session or been to the gym, then Personal Training at Fighting For Fitness will be a great introduction to a healthier future in an enjoyable way, with fantastic results. If you are a regular gym bunny, or sports person then we are sure that you will find the Fighting For Fitness experience different, more beneficial and more exciting, or even just a great addition to your current training routine.

DANNY MAKA

Danny Maka qualified as an Advanced Personal Trainer and Nutritional Advisor with Premier Global in 2006 and before launching Fighting For Fitness Ltd, he worked in a number of large gyms such as Fitness First in Jersey and London. Prior to specializing as a Personal Trainer, Danny successfully competed as an amateur boxer for 10 years before turning professional in 2008.

During his career as a Personal Trainer, Danny has worked with a wide range of clients, focusing on a variety of goals such as injury rehabilitation, sports specific training, obesity/weight loss, and fitness training for the forces, to name but a few. He brings his considerable experience in professional sports along with boundless enthusiasm and a personal drive to succeed and maintain a high level of fitness and health to every Personal Training session he runs.

Before Fighting for Fitness Ltd, Danny found that many of his regulars enjoyed every aspect of their training sessions but one; the impersonal and overwhelming atmosphere of training in a large member’s only gym. So, in order to give his clients a chance to get away from this intimidating environment, Danny began to train with some in their own homes and gardens. Whilst this overcame the issue of impersonal gyms, it provided two new challenges; the lack of the specialist equipment and the added distraction of home comforts.

Having spent some time researching how to capture the benefits of both large well equipped gyms and home training, whilst overcoming their respective challenges, Danny found a niche in the market for purely Personal Training gyms. He launched Fighting For Fitness Ltd Personal Training in 2008 with the aim of making visits to the gym less of a chore and more of an opportunity to reach goals in a fresh, positive, relaxed and professional environment.

ANDREW JOICEY

Andrew Joicey, Andrew Specialises in Boxing and Physical fitness, Classes, Group and individual PT sessions.

Boxing is a great stress buster and is an effective means of cross-training & total body workout. It combines both aerobic & anaerobic work and ensures a diverse workout, but also enhances sports specific senses, including hand-eye co-ordination, balance, endurance & speed. It works the entire body to the maximum, toning and sculpting all the muscles and provides fantastic weight loss results. This is a seriously fun way to shed the pounds.

“I believe that if you want to succeed and hit your fitness goals you need to utilise every moment in the gym to the best of your ability, without a plan this can’t be done. It’s my job to create the plan and your job to get the results".

Andrew Represented the Dale youth amateur Boxing club, where he was fortunate enough to share the gym with many talented lads from all walks of life (George Groves and James De-gale). Andrew had a short amateur career where he won the London Novice 60kg ABA title, runner up in Las Vegas-London VS America Box off, and Gold medalist at the HSK Box cup in Denmark.

CAROLINE YANDELL

Hi guys, my mame is Caroline and I am the newest member to the fighting for fitness team. I am a level 3 qualified personal trainer and nutritional adviser, I have been in the fitness industry for over 3 years after qualifying with premier global.

Having come fom a very sporty background it was only natural I stepped into the fitness industry to share my passion and enthusiasm for a healthy active lifestyle. I was honoured to represent my county at youth level for various sports including netball, hockey and basketball but my main achievements came with football. I played both youth and senior for 2 countys....greedy I know : ) and played my football at the highest level in the English game before I had to stop due to injury.

Once I qualified as a personal trainer I set a huge goal of competing in a body building show which took a vast amount of dedication and sacrifice but I did it and placed 8th so was definitely worth doing. Having that knowledge of how to transform a body and what it takes to do it puts me in a great position to help with your goals.

The clients I have worked with have been varied from weight loss, muscle gain and athletes as well as people using training as a release from the day to day stresses from life. I personally started training at fighting for fitness with Danny last summer and loved every minute of my boxing training, so much so I am planning my first fight this year! First hand I know the benefits of personal training, so whatever your goal or whatever type of training you enjoy here at fighting for fitness I can help.

I look forward to meeting you soon to help you along your journey.

Caroline

JON HOLMANS

I have been a personal trainer for the past 14 years working 5 years for one of London’s biggest health clubs in west London becoming the busiest trainer nationwide, with all that experience and hundreds of thousands of training sessions under my belt I feel I am at the peak of my profession.

Now based in both Maida Vale and Buckinghamshire I train a wide range of clients from well-known celebrities, busy business men and women plus OAP’s all benefitting from the constantly varied training programs. I am a firm believer that training should be challenging, specific to your needs and most importantly in my eyes enjoyable! Training can be hard and sometimes tedious so if you enjoy the training and look forward to coming back you are half way there and more likely to get the results you crave.

At the age of 15 I ran my first 10k race and was instantly hooked, I joined Canterbury running club and quickly achieved success with great coaching. I won road, track and cross country races competing for my county and gaining national qualifying times.

My proudest moments was becoming Kent champion at 10k with a personal best of 30 minutes plus competing abroad in an international field finishing in the top ten. I still enjoy running and even though I do not compete anymore I can still run a 15 minute 5k on the treadmill.

I’ve recently qualified as a Crossfit instructor and I have enjoyed the variety it’s given my training, learning new movements especially the Olympic lifts and the Gymnastic rings. I can often be found with a bar in my hands practicing in-between clients.

BEN HOLLORAN

I completed my Level 3 Certificate in Personal Training in September 2011 and have worked as a freelance personal trainer since this time. I have primarily trained my clients outside of a public gym environment to enhance the personal touch aspect of my training. This has been comprised of home visits or conducting sessions in a mutually convenient location. Now I have affiliated myself with ‘Fighting For Fitness’ which allows me to offer my sessions from a fully equipped personal training studio which gives clients the privacy and confidentiality they deserve.

Whether you’re training for a specific sport or event, injury rehabilitation, hypertrophy, to improve functional strength and mobility, or to improve body composition I will construct a personalised workout plan to cater for your specific needs. A further qualification is my Level 3 GP & Exercise Referral Certificate which allows me to liaise with your GP or Health Professional in order to give advice on an individual, safe and effective activity programme designed especially with you and your health concerns in mind.

Services I provide are one to one, train with a friend, and I run boxing style boot camp sessions on a regular basis. The service doesn’t consist solely of an exercise programme; I will also provide nutritional advice in order to implement small, manageable changes to my client’s diet to assist them in achieving their desired results.

Regardless of whether you are a first time gym goer or someone who is exercising on a regular basis but just can’t seem to reach your goals alone, I am confident that I have the knowledge and expertise to help you achieve the next step. Programmes will be devised for people of all ages and fitness levels to accommodate individual needs.

Please feel free to contact me for a free informal consultation.
