My super star
This beautiful video brought tears to my eyes as I know just how much my beautiful client and friend has improved physically, mentally and emotionally in the last 18 months through exercise, healthy eating and juicing ❤️.
I’m so SO proud of you Monideepa.
I can’t even describe the pride And happiness I feel. Well done angel and thank you for taking the time to do this testimonial about your time working with me so far. You are such a pleasure to train and coach.
Having had personal training with Davina many years ago I reached out to her recently as I was feeling a bit ‘stuck’ but couldn’t quite identify why I was feeling this way. After a chat we agreed that coaching rather then training would suit my needs best. Through these coaching sessions Davina has has given me the tools to break down why I was feeling ‘stuck’ . In our coaching sessions she listens carefully and is always able to help me get to the root of what is holding me back and then provides the tools for me to identify what I want from my life (short and long term) and how to create realistic goals to get me there. New to the world of self discovery she has broken things down into manageable sizes and encouraged me to push my self bit by bit. I have discovered so much about myself and Davina has a way of seeing things in me that I hadn’t seen before. Davina as a person is extremely warm and caring and gives her support daily not just in her sessions.
Before I started working with Davinia I felt very unmotivated and low in confidence. However, it didn’t take long for that to change once I started working with her! Personal training with Davinia is an amazing experience as you learn so so much from her. The support I got from her was amazing. There’s no way I would of reached my personal goal if it wasn’t for her! She showed me support every step of the way and kept me motivated the whole time. I loved how she pushed me out of my comfort zone to help me achieve my best not only physically but mentally too. Since working with Davinia I’m in a much better place as I’m more aware on how to eat more nutritious foods, I’ve learnt a lot more exercises and I feel a lot more confident not only in my appearance but also mentally stronger. As a result of training with Davinia I also feel a lot more motivated and have learned new skills and lessons with her that I can carry with me through life. An example is creating a vision board. This has not only had an impact on me but my whole family as they have joined in doing it with me, but personally I feel like this is an amazing thing to do as it keeps you motivated to reach your goals and gives you something to work towards (this is just one of many things that I have learned from her). For anyone thinking of working with Davinia I would say 1000% do it!!! Before I started training with her, I thought that it would take me weeks to achieve my personal goal however after just one session with her, that changed instantly! I felt so motivated to work even harder with her to reach my goal and achieved it in the shortest amount of time possible! I was so impressed that I could loose the weight that I wanted to in such a short amount of whilst still enjoying everting single minute of the exercise even though it wasn’t easy, it so worth it!!
Before starting with Davinia, I was unfit, overweight and stuck in a rut of feeling unable to exercise due to my weight and then putting on weigh because I wasn’t exercising. As a result, I had little motivation and low self-esteem. I wasn’t accountable to myself and was miserable. I knew I had to do something before my health was impacted long-term. I was recommended to Davinia through a friend who had changed her health and lifestyle with Davinia’s help. When I first met Davinia I knew I had made the right choice, her positivity and energy is infectious. She listened to me and how I live my life and what I wanted rather than what she thought I should be doing. She checks in with me and sends me motivation and when I’ve not been fully on track, she’s refocused me to looking forward on something I can change and not dwelling on the past as it’s all about balance and maintaining a lifestyle. I have lost over a stone and lots of inches – which are more important to me by making sensible choices and exercising and not feeling like I’ve given up everything I enjoy (I do love wine!) I exercise most days either running or HIIT which I never would have got to without Davinia’s support and focus. Most importantly I’m doing it for me not anyone else and I’m enjoying it. I loved buying size 12 dresses even if I didn’t go anywhere this Christmas! I was reluctant in committing to at PT, I don’t like the shouty type I’ve seen as they just make me want to run to the nearest cake shop and I didn’t want someone who was going to make me feel guilty for enjoying the things I like. Davinia has helped me change my mindset, whilst not making me feel guilty for having a wine at the weekend its all about balance and 80/20. Davinia has allowed me to get back to being me again. Although I’ve not seen many people due to the lockdown, friends I’ve spoken to and told them about my results have been inspired to make better choices and that makes me feel great too. If you’re considering using a coach personal trainer then my advice would be DO IT! The financial cost which is a consideration is definitely less than replacing my whole wardrobe of clothes that didn’t fit me (and do now!) I feel like I’ve found me again as well as lots of clothes in my wardrobe and I am no longer hiding behind excuses to get out there and do it. Thank you Davinia!
I didn’t know where I was before I met Davinia. I had no sense of direction, and I didn’t realise at the time how un-happy I really was. I had no confidence, motivation no care for my health and wellbeing my eating habits were out of control. I had just turned 20 and I knew something had to change. My issues with food, exercise, motivation and confidence I didn’t realise were stemmed from issues in the past. It wasn’t till I started my PT course and coaching that I truly understood this and put these problems to rest. Davinia coached me through difficult conversations I had with my family, and made me truly realise what I was worth. I now am changed for the better. Davinia taught me that by adopting and living a happy, positive, healthy lifestyle it truly can better your life. I have lost weight and gained confidence. My mindset is in a completely different place. I do have my down moments like everyone does, but Davinia is right there to help and keep me on track. Davinia has pointed me in a new direction of life and she has inspired me so much, I’ve even started to study to become a PT myself. If you're not sure whether you should start this journey if you're thinking it’s not the right time or am I ready for this. Stop, and just do it. If I knew that I was going to be where I am now at the beginning of this journey, I would have started much sooner, and that’s all down to Davinia. She is funny, kind, warm, generous I could go on and on. I have been able to open up to her about things I have never spoken about before she has helped me transform my body and mind, and for that I am forever thankful and grateful. Just do it start your new life now because trust me you won’t regret it !
Before starting with Davinia, I was very unhappy with my body and my health. I was lacking energy and all of my clothes wouldn’t fit me, apart from leggings and baggy t-shirts. At that point I decided it was time to do something about it. The support that I have received has been simply amazing. Achievable goals were set and the exercise matched and changed where I was at with my body and health. Small steps, grew into big steps with plenty of support and encouragement from Davinia who has such a positive energy, which quickly rubbed off onto me. I am much happier with my body, health and wellbeing – I feel fitter and stronger and a lot more confident in myself. I started off hating the idea of running, but now do between 10km-15km a week, all of my own choice and never pushed by Davinia – there is no point doing a type of exercise, if you do not enjoy it as it isn’t sustainable. I now live with a balanced mind-set and do not deny myself a glass or two of bubbles or a chocolate bourbon biscuit…but I know that if I do, I need to offset it with exercise – a run or a long family walk. Davinia is simply amazing - she has supported me with changing my mind-set and my approach to food and exercise. I never feel pressured to do anything I do not want to do, but simply encouraged to make the right choices. She keeps me accountable to myself, but in her bubbly, kind and happy way. I definitely could not have achieved what I have achieved without her support and encouragement. It has been worth every penny and you simply cannot put a price on your health.
Finally I have started juicing and I am amazed at how much more energy I have. It’s incredible. I know you said that would happen. But still. Also thank you for our coaching sessions recently. My confidence and self esteem have been very low and I have felt very unhappy in my job and in myself. But you have given me the skills to believe in myself again and I feel so much better. I also have set myself on the path to retrain for a new career as we talked about and I’m now also changing my diet around too so I have more energy. I’m feeling extremely positive about things now. Thank you. Can’t wait for our next session in December.
Thank you Davinia for helping me turn so much around in the last 5 months. I can’t believe I have lost 3 stone already. And I have also got my blood results back and they are not pre diabetic any more. I am so pleased that I signed up to coaching and personal training with you. Next year I want to focus on improving my self confidence and also tone up my body so that I can finally wear a swimsuit. I know with your help and support I will get there. You have been a life line for me. Thank you
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!
