This is the first step in determining personal goals and current state of health and fitness and paves the way for future training at the gym. Danny aims to give every client the opportunity to switch off from their daily distractions, in a supportive and professional atmosphere, and focus all their energies into reaching their fitness goals and overcoming any training challenges.

Client Testimonials icon


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!

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.


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.

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.


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.
