Hi Davinia I have dropped 6kg in the last 10 weeks with you and i feel better than ever. You have inspired me to live healthy and this is the result of the juicing, eating mainly plant based foods and the exercise. I feel like a new person and I am motivated and happy again. Thanks Davinia
This is a testimonial for the super lady Davinia. When I say super, I mean Super. Davinia is the first trainer that has ever understood my needs and gets me. She has helped me stop my awful food habits and I feel in control. I haven’t been like this since I was a little girl. I can say no to sugar and fattening food now even when it’s sitting in front of me. This is a huge thing. I have lost 3 stones in the last year and I will now lose my last 2 stones this year with the healthy eating regime and exercise plan Davinia has created for me. I thoroughly recommend Davinia. She’s a huge inspiration and so supportive and a lovely lady.
From a younge age I’ve always been overweight, unhealthy and totally unaware of how to lead a healthy and active lifestyle. I had tried so many diets but none of them seemed to work for me long term for one reason or another and I felt hopeless that I’d ever be able to shift the weight. This is when I decided to take the leap back in September and contact Davinia after I had come across her website. I can honestly say I have absolutely no regrets, from the moment I met her she proved she was passionate and experienced. We sat down and discussed my lifestyle to pin point where my challenges were, then created a realistic food plan/exercise regime for me to follow. She filled with me determination and hope that this time, I could do it, there was not an if. I train with her twice and week and each session is a mix of exercises such as boxing, weights, floor workouts, running etc. Davinia has such an upbeat energy that keeps me motivated through every session and pushes me to work harder - I now love and crave the exercise. Week after week my weight and measurements are decreasing which is very exciting and proof that this lifestyle change is working. Within the last 4 months I’ve lost 3 stone! Still have a long way to go but I’m confident with her help and guidance that I will reach my goals. Another brilliant tool I have learnt with Davinia is juicing. They have incredible health benefits and the brilliant part is I easily have been able to incoperate them into my daily life. I oftern have a juice as an easy way to make sure I’ve had my 5-10 fruits and vegetables for the day. In addition to this, I decided to do a 5 day juice cleanse to give me another boost and within the 5 days I felt like I had more energy, clearer skin and I had lost 5.5 pounds! I always felt refreshed and full, it was amazing to see how much change there was in such a small space of time. Overall, I would highly recommend Davinia to anybody who is looking for a change in lifestyle or anybody who is interested about the benefits of juicing. She’s an incredible lady who has inspired me with her knowledge and positive attitude. She has never been judgemental but instead motivating and devoted. I know that with her I can not only shift the weight but build on my strength and fitness to be a healthier and happier person. Can’t thank her enough.
"Davinia was key in helping me lose my baby weight through a combination of exercise and food planning. She taught me lots about the right foods to eat and ensured I stayed on track with regular check-ins via txt. The PT sessions were enjoyable and made me feel positive about exercise and sensible eating. They were also specific to my goals. I highly recommend her. Thank you Davinia!" March 2019
"Thank you so much Davinia. You are such a positive motivator. I have really enjoyed the sessions we have had over the last few months. You have devised a manageable exercise programme for me and taught me how to eat more healthily. The veg mix juices are fantastic. What a breakthrough to a reluctant fruit and veg eater. I now drink 4 veg and 3 fruits a day. You have set me on a healthier lifestyle choice. The support you have given along the way has been great. I l love it when the thought for the day pops into my inbox. I have gone from a lazy snack eating 49 year old to a healthier motivated 50 year old. The sessions are fun with a mix of exercise inside and out – like floor work, weights, boxing, stretches, power walking and jogging. You can’t help to be motivated with Davinia’s positive thinking and life choices. In 4 months, I have I have lost 9 pounds and 2 inches off most places! More importantly she has set me on the road to a continued weight loss, so I have high hopes of loosing another 9 pounds by the summer! Davinia is so passionate that if you have the motivation to make a change to your lifestyle and health – you will not fail with Davinia."
"I have just finished a block of 10 training sessions with Davinia. I wanted to particularly focus on strength training and improving my muscle mass. Within the 10 week block of sessions I feel significantly stronger, more toned with improved posture. Davinia’s knowledge and love of nutrition shines through and I’m now juicing daily too improve my health and wellbeing too- and It is working. Davinia is an excellent communicator with a genuine client- focused attitude. She is a lovely lady and in all the best ways, is no push over! She’s your coach. She knows exactly what you need to do to feel and look better. I would highly recommend Davinia."
I found Davinia online after I weighed myself 4 weeks after the birth of my second child and realised I weighed the same as I did when I was 9 months pregnant with my first. I knew then that I would need help to shift all this extra weight especially as I am not a fan of exercise and knew I would need motivating. I had a very prescriptive list of what I wanted my PT to be. She had to be physically fit, have a gym in her home, live locally to me and allow me to bring my baby to the training sessions. I had no idea if there was anyone out there who would fit the bill and Davinia did in spades. We spoke on the phone and I explained my situation and she was so lovely and reassuring. She suggested I sign up for 12 weeks with two sessions per week to help me lose my baby weight. Well here I am 12 weeks later and I have lost 1 stone and 4lbs and I have lost 3 inches off my tummy and hips, 2 inches off my chest and one off my arms and legs. I am over the moon! I have my pre-baby body back and it’s all down to Davinia’s healthy eating guidance, support, encouragement and praise. My husband and I have completely changed our diets and he too has lost lots of weight as a result. I can’t thank Davinia enough for what she has done for me. She is amazing and would recommend her to anyone who is willing to work hard and be committed to shift weight and getting fit.
Thank you with all my heart for your help and support over the last 10 weeks. I'm feeling so much better about myself, amazing what can be achieved in 10 weeks if you have a fabulous personal trainer!!! 😃 A stone lighter, a dress size down, body fat down, leaner and fitter. I’m looking forward to going on holiday now. Finally.
Thank you so much for helping me, you have really changed my mindset. I can’t believe I have lost 2 stone in the last three months. I will certainly carry on with what you have taught me in sunny Dorset. I shall miss you. You are such an inspirational lady.
Just a little note to say thank you for the past 10 weeks. Your positive attitude has really rubbed off on me and as well as getting towards my goals with health and weight loss, you have helped me to embrace the good aspects of myself and see the positives. Thank you
In just 4 months of personal training and having life coaching with Davinia, I've seen a remarkable improvement in my body, mind and wellbeing. We have worked on my body and fitness and I am far leaner and fitter, I am also back in my size 12 jeans which is brilliant. We have also been working on my confidence, after a particularly difficult year, and I am feeling stronger and more determined in all areas of my life. Davinia’s enthusiasm, knowledge and professionalism has greatly encouraged me to achieve my goals and go even further. I would thoroughly recommend her to anyone looking to the same
Davinia has got to be one of the most motivated and upbeat people that I have ever met. She has inspired me to make changes which I have always found hard to do. She has helped me to lose over 2 stone now in the last year and I feel so much younger, fitter and happier. Apart from regular training sessions, Davinia has also helped me with diet, fitness routines to do on my own and the inner strength to believe in myself. Davinia overlooks your diet, lifestyle, exercise regimes and helps work on your self-belief, making this a very holistic regime instead of just personal training. I would recommend Davinia if you want to turn your life around and feel and look great.
You are an incredible lady Davinia and a huge inspiration, truly -and in the short time we spent together, you taught me so much and for that alone, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. Thank you for making me believe change is possible, and for helping my like myself a little more
Exactly one year ago I decided it was time to do something positive about trying to lose weight when I became uncomfortable & unhappy with the way I looked. I was so fortunate to find Davinia. I didn't think I had much willpower but her encouragement & approach to diet & exercise is so motivating and so much fun. I'm delighted to say I've lost 3 stones. Thank you, Davinia, you're one in a million
Last year I decided to invest in personal training and life coaching with Davinia, in preparation for my wedding at Christmas. It was the best thing I have ever done. I was a bit nervous about the pressure of looking good on my wedding day and so my objective was to lose weight, sculpt my body, and feel confident and happy in my own skin and in the wedding pictures. Davinia helped me with my diet and exercise plan outside our sessions and she was in contact with me daily between sessions too, to keep me focused and on track. In total I lost 7kgs and was back to a weight that I felt happy with for my wedding. The sessions were always fun and interesting and I loved our sessions so much that I am still using Davinia now for personal training after my wedding to keep me slim and fit. Davinia is inspirational, chatty, knowledgeable and always puts a smile on your face. Thank you.
Davinia Meades is a truly excellent trainer and coach. She is the perfect combination of warm and tough and she works with the whole person -- mentally, emotionally and physically. Because of her efforts and massive help, I am fitter, thinner, stronger and more flexible. Working out has become fun and I would definitely recommend her
My friends and family keep telling me how good I look, and it is all down to you Davinia. Thank you. You are a miracle worker. I can’t believe I am already back in my size 10 clothes after having my baby 10 months ago and needing to still lose 2.5 stone. I am so happy. I feel and look so much better and feel like my old self again. It’s amazing. You are amazing and I can’t recommend you highly enough. Thank you. I love our PT sessions together, although they are hard work!
Where do I start to thank you for all you have done for me. You are such a special person and an inspiration. I consider myself so lucky to have ‘found you’ and thank you for not only helping me to improve my fitness and to get my weight down, but also for increasing my confidence and the way I feel about myself. I know now that I have lost two stone already with you that I will be able to lose the other two. I feel so much happier in myself and will be wearing the red dress at Christmas. Thank you Davinia. Xx
Since the age of 10 years old, I have struggled with my weight. I was always the chubby girl at school and was bullied. By 15 years old I had put on a massive amount from binging on junk food as I was so unhappy with school life and being overweight. By the time I went to uni I was 16 stone and by the time I came to Davinia I was 20 stone. I have now lost 3 stone in the last 4 months and I am so proud of myself. I still have a long way to go but for the first time in my life I am in control of my eating habits and am exercising. Personal training with Davinia has changed my life and I am so grateful. I am hoping that this time next year I will be at my target weight of 12 stone. I will carry on with eating healthily and sticking to Davinia’s programme. I love my weekly sessions with Davinia as seeing the inches dropping off and the body fat decreasing is just brilliant. I cannot wait to write my testimonial to Davinia when I am 12 stone! Thank you Davinia.
I hurt my knee in April 2013 and 12 months later had managed to put on 20 lbs. After several attempts at trying to lose the weight on my own with no success, I contacted Davinia who with her knowledge and understanding of health, nutrition and exercise, helped me to get my mojo back and since April 2014 I have not only managed to lose 1 stone, but I have a much greater understanding of how important healthy eating is. Since signing up with Davinia, she has been genuinely interested in helping and supporting me through the 10 week plan and I felt brilliant on holiday, lying on the beach in my bikini in Marbella, from where I have just returned. Davinia continually encouraged me through texts throughout the duration of my holiday. I have still got stone to lose, and with the motivation and encouragement received from Davinia, I feel confident that I will now be able to do this on my own, although I know that Davinia is always there in the background if I need some encouragement from her at any time. Thanks for your help. X x x x x
All of my life I have struggled with my weight, feeling unworthy and miserable for so long. That is until I plucked up the courage to call Davinia. She was so kind and encouraging during our initial conversation, I felt I could trust her and so I signed up. That was in January 2014. It is now the beginning of July, I have lost 4.5 stone and I have never felt better. I can hardly believe it myself! The program is completely do-able and I find myself enjoying exercise, but the best part is - all my efforts are paying off, it's working! I still have more weight to lose, but I now know I can do it. Davinia's knowledge and understanding of health, nutrition, exercise and well-being are surpassed only by her genuine care, support and encouragement. She believed in me, even when I didn't and I feel completely safe in her hands. Not only have I found an amazing personal trainer but also a friend for life! Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Training with Davinia is great because she keeps you super motivated and my results are superb. I have now lost over 2 stone in 12 weeks and have lost 2 dress sizes, nearly 3. I need to lose one more dress size and tone up by 22nd august for my sister’s wedding and i know i will with Davinia’s help. i have always struggled with my weight and have done every diet under the sun including the Dukan, Atkins, Slimmers world, Weight watchers, the Cambridge diet and so on. The diets worked for a while but after a few weeks i would always feel hungry and would give up. But this time no diets and just healthy living with a healthy eating plan and exercise plan (from Davinia) and the weight is coming off nicely. Davinia keeps you on track by emailing you constantly to check (in-between sessions) that you are being ‘good’ and sticking to the programme. She is very positive, uplifting and has superb knowledge. I would recommend Davinia to anyone who wants to lose weight and feel good about themselves. She is a breath of fresh air
Davinia is currently training my 17 year old daughter and she has been for about 5 months now. She is very motivating and has helped my daughter feel confident about herself again. Davinia has helped my daughter not only with losing weight but also in helping her to understand better about healthy eating and exercising. My daughter loves her weekly sessions with Davinia and we love seeing our daughter flourish
Thank you Davinia for getting me back on track with my eating and exercise regime. I have been stuck in a rut for a while and wasn't managing to shift any weight. It was so frustrating and i was yo yo- ing on my last half a stone. With your help I now only have 1lb left to lose which is brilliant. When I see you next month, it will be off. You are a very inspiring woman and I am so pleased to have found you. I will recommend you to anyone.
