Before 2 after personal training in London. Is the best way to achieve weight loss in London. Previously to working with Dave the only fruit and veg I knew was tomato ketchup and orange cremes. I imagined weight loss was hours of slogging on a treadmill and surviving on celery sticks. Dave used the Biosignature Modulation system. I was a bit sceptical at first but after a month I had achieved better results than any other diet or exercise program I had used in the past. Losing 5% body fat in the first month with a 10 cm reduction in my waist size.Dave believed in me from the beginning and his non judgemental approach really kept me motivated!! He gives 110 percent to each session, planning and designing varied nutrition and exercise plans. I've noticed improvements in my skin, energy levels, sleeping patterns and confidence. best of all not a treadmill or celery stick in sight! I would advise consulting Before 2 After in London over any other Personal training service and I've used several. Sophie Robinson, 24
I have been going to the gym for many years 4-5 days a week, I used to read all sort of books, articles etc so I always felt I had the knowledge to succeed in the results I wanted in then gym. The past year I had got lazy, I was still eating well and training but I hadn't changed my workouts and was getting stuck in a plateau.I went to Dave for the past 8 weeks and it's been brilliant and I was shocked myself at how well we progressed. He has taught me so much in the time I trained with him, everything I wanted to know he could tell me every detail. The programmes he did for me made me look forward to training days. I wanted to train extra days but he wouldn't let me! He looked at my diet he didn't change that much to how I eat, but made me change the timing I eat certain foods. Once we introduced to eating all my carbs around training , the impact it had was crazy! It's the little things like that is why it's worth getting Dave as a personal trainer! I would recommend him to everybody, I had always been to stubborn to get a personal trainer, but now I have trained with Dave I wish It was something I did so much earlier as there was so much to learn.

5 Stars. Dave is motivating and so knowledgable and has given me the confidence and motivation to keep going and never give up! His ongoing guidance and weekly sessions have helped me more than I could have ever imagined. I am happy and healthier than I have ever been (and can now wear tight dresses)!!Can’t recommend him highly enough. Maddie Eleini
When I started working with Dave Brockway I weighed 118 Kg and couldn't run for a bus.... I wanted to do something about it but knew I needed help.I joined the gym and contacted Dave because he was firstly a professional trainer and secondly a specialist in fat loss. Fat loss had to be the first thing on my agenda.Dave reviewed my diet, offered advice and devised my first programme which I found not too hard but not too easy either.... Dave's trademark in my view. A month later a different programme, different exercises and equipment....then repeat this until.....In 14 months of working with Dave I was at my target weight (32 KG Lighter), fitter and a lot happier in myself. When I posed for the 'after' photo I couldn’t believe that I had been carrying that 32Kg 24/7.Yes it was hard work and at times I had to push myself to get on with it. Dave was constantly supportive and provided interesting and varied programmes that kept the interest up as well as getting the results. If I found something too much then Dave had an alternative to overcome the difficulty and move on...I never felt overstretched and I always felt that we were working together and now I have lost the fat I feel that we achieved that together. - Stephen Hyam
Dave has over the past 12 weeks helped me lose fat using his vast knowledge. With Dave's expertise in training and nutrition I've lost 7kg and 5% of bodyfat. Due to his own experience he really knows what he is talking about, especially when emotional and mental support was much needed. I can’t recommend him enough, such an inspiration and excellent mentor! Michaela Larsson
When I started my personal training with David, I hardly knew what the inside of a gym looked like let alone what to do when you there. I used to be very skinny, at a mere 52 kg and within 8 months David helped me to gain 8 kg of pure muscle. I could not have achieved this without the help, encouragement and the technical knowledge that Dave brought with him. I commend you David, for having the courage and believe in me that I could do it. I am forever grateful for teaching me the correct forms of the exercises and giving me the confidence which I lacked greatly in the beginning. I consider you one of the best investments I've made for myself. I cannot thank you enough. P.S. The proof is in the photos. - Justin Bell
I can’t recommend Dave enough. He made everything so simple and straightforward I couldn’t believe how quickly (and easily!) I saw results. I’ve been going to the gym for a number of years now, and swapped hours of cardio and HIIT for strength training in 2016. The initial results were great, but they soon plateaued and I was exercising 5-6 times a week and barely seeing any progress. In just eight weeks of working with Dave, I saw more change than I had in about three years! I lost 6% body fat, felt fitter and stronger than ever and went from a size 12 to an 8 (which I hadn’t been since I was about 15!).
Dave set me up with a training programme (four days a week – so I was actually training less than I was previously) and reviewed my diet. I honestly could have cried when he told me the calories I should stick to – but after a making some small changes, I found I could eat just as much if not more than I was before! Dave knew my lifestyle (eating and drinking out a lot), but with a bit of planning and a few swaps, I could easily fit it in without sacrificing the fun stuff. I kept saying that it felt like it was too easy – I’m now kicking myself for not doing it sooner!
I’m so grateful for everything I’ve learned and continue to learn from Dave. If you’re looking for a PT with the knowledge and experience to make real changes, I can’t recommend him enough
When I wanted to get in the best shape of my life at 42 years of age I thought I knew how to do it. I have a degree in Sport Science and i was formally a professional footballer. What I soon released was that my knowledge was very dated and more importantly, it was how a 27 years old would have got in shape. I managed to lose about a stone and half on my own but then plateaued. So I sort out and expert and i couldn't have found more of a expert in Dave. His knowledge was immense. He methods were incredible and he managed to get me into better shape than I had ever been in before in my life. I cannot recommend Dave enough. In fact, since putting my AFTER pictures up on social media I think he got over 20 enquires about working with him as well. If you are thinking of getting in shape, then seriously, get Dave on your side. You won't regret it.
I started training with Dave in October last year when I received two free Personal Training sessions, from these two sessions and listening to his knowledge on how I could reach my goals of losing body fat I brought one of his packages and it’s the best money I have ever spent.
I had always attended the gym at least 6 days a week, doing endless amounts of cardio, not following a consistent programme or tracking my calorie intake- I always wondered why my body never changed or the weight wasn’t dropping. 9 months later, I train 4 times a week, have increased my daily step count, track my calories, know the correct foods to fuel my body and am fully aware of what I need to do to reach my goals. I have learnt so much not only about getting into shape but also how the different muscles connect and work and the importance of rest and nutrition. This is 100% all thanks to Dave.
Dave is one of the most experienced and committed trainers I have ever met. From each session with him he has taught me the importance of how to execute each exercise including the tempo/rest periods and ensured my technique was correct. I am now confident and have the tools to continue to exercise on my own, working through the programme correctly. He is always an email, a chat or text away from helping when I have needed to check something or ask anything about the programme design, concerns I have or just general conversation of how everything works. The support and positiveness really goes along way.
After just 12 Weeks, I never expected to see changes like I have made to my body and was surprised by how the training worked. I have always tried to over complicate it and Dave has shown me it’s actually simple if you’re dedicated and know what you’re doing (which now I do!). I have worked through 5 phases, each session no longer than an hour long, consisting of weight training and basic compound exercises. They are tough but it can be done when you put your mind to it and you always leave the gym feeling so good. It makes it all worth it when you receive comments asking what you have done and you look so different! I have learnt to trust the process and be patient, hard work and knowing you are training correctly pays off.
People have recently said to me ‘wow you pay a lot for your PT’, at the start I did have apprehensions about spending this money but I can honestly say I have never regretted it and has been well worth it. I know what I need to do now to carry on with my health and fitness journey and this is all thanks to Dave and his endless amounts of knowledge!
If you’re keen to see results, I definitely recommend getting in touch with Dave – it’s amazing what you learn and how simple the process can be to seeing the results you want.
If it wasn’t for you I wouldn’t be where I’m today, just to go into a normal shop like M&S and get a shirt which was a XL and not a 4XL and a pair of trousers 38” and not 44” this makes me fill good. when I think I was 23 stone drinking 10 - 12 pints of beer per night and now I’m 16st 9 lbs and lucky if I have a bottle of beer. Making sure I do 8000 steps per day keep under 1600 calories a day and having a cheat day per week. Once again thank you Dave for what you did for me and thank you Nazy Baby for doing it with me
Training with Dave was one of the best decisions I have ever made. Not only did he restore my overall confidence through his expertise, but I saw, and am continuing to see, changes to my health which I didn’t expect. My inflammation decreased, skin improved, as well as sorted out some hormonal imbalances I was experiencing. Working with Dave isn’t simply a fat loss solution, but an investment into your overall well-being.
Dave is extremely knowledgable and tells you the truth. He makes you realise that’s it’s OK to not be perfect and feel like a machine all the time. I genuinely looked forward to every session with him and learnt to love the programmes he created for me. I was initially apprehensive that I’d find it too difficult but he tailored to my individual needs and made me realise that it your work out is “too hard” then it’s unlikely to be doing you any good.
I couldn’t recommend him enough, the tips and change in mentality I’ve experienced has been worth every penny I spent.
I have been training with Dave for the last 7 months and it has been one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. I had wanted to hire a PT for a while but was hesitant to do so because of the financial cost. However, I can honestly say that it has been worth every single penny. I had already been exercising regularly for a few years but I had mainly stuck to cardio and I was frustrated as hadn’t seen the results I wanted despite my hard work. I also had a terrible knowledge of nutrition and quite a poor relationship with food. I started attending Dave’s free ladies lifting class at Fitness First and realised that he really knew what he was talking about so I decided that I would train with him for a couple of months. Seven months on, I feel fantastic and intend to train with Dave indefinitely. I am the strongest I have ever been, I’m eating more, training 4 - 5 times a week rather than 6 - 7, I am really enjoying my life and I have a healthy relationship with food. Also, all my friends have noticed a difference in how I look and a huge increase in my confidence! Dave is unbelievably hardworking, knowledgable and personable. He sees his clients as individuals and tailors his programmes to their needs. I can’t imagine training with a better PT and plan to continue to do so for the foreseeable future!
Having struggled with diets and quick fix fat loss regimes for years, working with Dave has been a revelation. He's built programmes that have been fun, engaging - and they've worked. -Combined with nutritional advice that's actually pretty easy to follow. I've built strength and dropped 10kg.
I've never felt better or healthier, my clothes now fit, I'm enjoying skiing and cycling much more - and it's sustainable.
Dave himself is supportive, distills things down to achievable goals, pushes me harder than I ever could myself, and all a humour and charm that means I look forward to the gym.- Ed Grimsey
Dave is one of the most knowledgeable and detail oriented PTs I’ve come across. He’s such a perfectionist, I trust that everything he taught me and created for me is of the highest quality.
Dave is not only extremely advanced when it comes to his technical skills as a PT. He is also extremely helpful, supportive and always there when you have extra questions or a need for advice. Starting my career as a PT was extremely daunting, and having someone like Dave to help me perfect my skills both as a trainee and a trainer, give advice and always be there when I had a question made my career transition way easier. Dave took hours of his day to further explain some training concepts to me and also give me business advise.
I would highly recommend Dave to anyone who wants to improve their body or knowledge about training.
