Another awesome DHPT Flexible Fueling Online testimonial

Thanks to Simone for the kind (and true!) words about my program.

Simone FF1Dave is an exceptional trainer that sets himself apart by giving frank, no-bullshit advice.

Since I was in my early 20s, I have trained various martial arts (including Muay Thai), I have been a committed runner and general vegetarian health enthusiast. I maintained a good overall health and fitness and always thought I had done ok on my own.

Simone FF2 I signed up to Dave’s program after starting my PhD in March 2015. I wanted to learn something new and have more flexibility in my training, particularly in trying to balance training with the demands of academia.

Within a month, I started noticing HUGE changes. I dropped 5 cm around my waist and I developed well defined arms and thighs. I finally learned what exercises complimented my body shape and type and how I could be fitter, stronger and faster. Now, I’m working towards my goals with a clearer direction and purpose.

The simple fact is that Dave’s no-nonsense approach works. I now know that getting lean and strong is easy when you follow the simple formulas and cut out the industry-led marketing crap.

You can see a bunch more great reviews from happy people on my facebook page.

DaveHPT Custom Flexible Dieting Guidelines: Testimonial

Here’s a nice video testimonial from a great supporter and customer of mine, who was smart enough to follow the Custom Flexible Dieting Guidelines I produced for her a while back.

As you can hear for yourself, the benefits of Flexible Dieting, and in particular MY approach to Flexible Dieting are many and varied. The benefits of being aware of and focussed upon exceeding your minimum requirements, rather than on restricting to some arbitrary “very low calorie” target should almost go without saying. Let’s run through some of them in random order all the same:

  • You’re actually fuelling your body properly, enabling good health and great results from training.
  • You quickly learn to build your own plan, consisting of more of the foods you like to eat, including some purely for enjoyment.
  • As you learn the macronutrional value of different foods and train your appetite to be more in tune with your requirements, you will be far less likely to over or under fuel when eating intuitively.
  • Understanding just how much fuel their bodies will utilise to fuel, recover from and adapt to training, and with no restrictions on what food choices are included in meeting those requirements, my clients soon feel like they are just “eating whatever they want”, and still seeing better results than ever before.

DHPT Before & After

Towards the right of you’re screen you can see the photographic evidence of quite an amazing body transformation of a nice young lady who is following my DHPT Coaching Via Email program. You might have also seen her photos used to promote some other weight loss programs, but don’t get tricked by those crooks (Ashy Bines and Fat Loss Factor I am looking at you)… she’s doing my program and you can go ask her about it yourself via my facebook page.

The results speak for themselves, but I’d be lying if I tried to take all of the credit. The truth is that the “before” shot was taken quite a few months before starting on my program, and she’d already been very successful just by eating sensibly and doing some weight training and a little cardio. I came into the picture at a stage where a more structured training program (and also my custom macronutrition recommendations) were required to help take her transformation a step further. Really we are just fine tuning at this stage because she looks amazing already.

So what makes a person who has already been very successful on their own decide to sign up for my program, rather than any of the other millions of programs available online or elsewhere? Well… let’s have a look at what you might read about some other program that you’re thinking about signing up for:

  • You need to follow our strict diet, and never eat these “bad” foods.
  • You should only eat at these times of the day, and never eat these things after this time.
  • You need to fast every few days to burn fat for energy.
  • Never eat bread, bread has carbs and carbs make you fat.
  • Fruit has too much sugar, don’t eat more than once piece of fruit per day.
  • You need to take this weight loss pill or other supplement, to boost metabolism and burn more calories.
  • This is the only way you can lose weight nothing else works.

I thought I was going to have more examples but really the “never eat these bad foods” thing covers most of it. Starvation diets, fad diets, “clean eating” and so on. These are all things that the average unsuccessful dieter might believe are necessary, but actually are not. When people who don’t know any better find a weight loss program advertised with one of these messages, the idea is that it is in line with what they already believe. So the response is “oh, that’s what I thought. This is what I’ve been looking for”.

As long as their program actually works and does so through healthy means it isn’t really the end of the world, apart from the whole “nothing else works this is what needs to be done” angle that usually applies. That’s dishonest, and for that matter promoting eating disorder mentalities by telling people things like “fruit has too much sugar” is clearly not ethical or healthy.

Now on the other hand, if you’re someone who has already been quite successful just from using your common sense, enjoying a variety of foods in moderation and exercising regularly, what are you to think when you look into a program and the marketing people tell you “all this stuff is necessary, you cannot lose weight unless you do all of it, in this order”? You already know that isn’t true, because you’ve done it already! You’re going to think “well, either this guy doesn’t know what he’s talking about, or he’s just full of shit!” And you’d be quite correct as well!

My message on the other hand is quite the opposite; nothing terribly special or complicated is really required to lose weight and get into shape. You just need to eat about the right amount more often than not, and hit the gym for about an hour most days. Of course, you’ll get much better results when you have a good idea of what “the right amount” actually is, and when you train methodically in accordance with a structured program such as mine.

The message is getting out, and as a result I have become quite successful in attracting the sort of clients who know there are no “tricks”, quick fixes or magical solutions… they know they have to eat right (without stressing out about it too much) and put in a solid effort hitting the weights for about an hour a day, most days.

And as you can see for yourself, the results are fantastic.

There are now over 30,000 people doing my free online weight loss program.

Progress photos from just one of my happy DHPT Online Coaching clients.

That’s probably not really true though. At the time of writing, the free weight loss program website is currently closing in on 35,000 views. I can’t be certain on exactly how many of those people have actually read up on everything and started training… but if the amount of fan mail (yep, fan mail!) I’ve been getting is any indication it’s quite a respectable number.

So, I’m getting fan mail and developing something of a cult following on the internet. Here’s some other cool things that have been happening as well:

  • Other weight loss blogs are quoting my articles and directing their followers to the program.
  • Dodgy weight loss sites are stealing photos of my clients and claiming credit for their progress (this one is actually not so cool).
  • There’s at least a couple of other trainers and aspiring trainers studying up on the information because it’s GOOD STUFF and they don’t seem to teach it in the certification courses for god knows what reason.
  • Oh and of course, people are getting great results and the ones who can afford it then upgrade to the modestly priced DHPT Via  Email program.

Latest progress photo from my #1 fan and star of my Online Personal Training programs.

People told me I was mad for starting a FREE program but here’s what they didn’t understand. I work with a relatively small amount of clients in person, and I also work closely with a small amount online. Right now I have room in my schedule for a couple more, but my business model doesn’t call for a large amount of clients.

As to finding those clients though… I shared an article on the DHPT Facebook yesterday, explaining how especially when it comes to females the fitness industry is all about sales, and not very much about results. Gyms are built on offering the classes and equipment that appeal to female members, regardless of how little they do to actually address their goals. As a personal trainer we’re taught to stay on top of all the latest industry trends and offer whatever the prospective client might be interested in doing, in order to get the sale. And as an online business, we are supposed to offer a little for free, but only once people have signed up with their email address so that you now have the opportunity to keep spamming them about how they need to upgrade to get the top secret information they really need.

Well I’m not interested in doing any of that, and in fact it is precisely because I don’t do any of that that I can produce such results for my clients, both online and in person. The tricky part is that while everyone knows what you’re “supposed to” do to lose weight and get into shape, it’s not until you throw all of that out the window that you will really succeed and be happy with your results. So, many people will come to a trainer already knowing what sort of a program they want to do, or convinced that what they are already doing is correct even though it is not producing results. In many cases they’re looking for something similar to what they’ve done in the past, but with a new coach and in a new location. Because they know that’s what you’re supposed to do, even though it didn’t work all those other times.

Oh, look who else is doing my program now with amazing results!

So as far as Online Personal Training and Coaching goes… it’s like I have always said; “DHPT is for people who want results”, and it’s for people who want to find a program that will produce results, rather than a program that fits in with what they’ve been told in the past. So if I do get an “I want to lose weight, but I want to do it like this…” type of message, or a “here’s what I’ve been doing but why isn’t it working?” type of message, I can give a brief explanation and then direct them to the free program where everything is explained in detail.

Now if they’re not ready to follow the free program for some reason…. well, if I was a real business man with a background in sales I’m sure I’d be able to talk people out of their money and sell them the Online Coaching program even though I know they’re not ready to follow it. If I had a background in counselling and psychology, maybe I could get to the bottom of what’s holding them back from leaving failed attempts with flawed strategies in the past, and joining the sensible few who are doing what it actually takes to get what they want. But what I am actually? An ex-bouncer. An ex-bouncer who happens to have a (probably) unmatched understanding of how to produce tremendous results with the most simple, common sense approach. And also I can write words good, but if people aren’t ready or willing to follow a simple free program with proven results for a few weeks before they make up their mind about paying for Online Personal Training, I don’t really have the time or the temperament to coax them into it.

So if anything, the free online program is something of a qualifying process to ensure people are actually ready to become a DHPT Online Coaching client.

Now that I’ve answered all of your questions about the free program, you know the program is legit, and you can see the results in the photos here, I have a question for you; What’s stopping you from getting started on the road to success, right now? Hit the Online  PT link, now.

Reviews of my “Lose Weight, No Bullshit” program are starting to roll in.

My other website is getting absolutely smashed with traffic. SMASHED I tell you!

It’s great! You’ve got some people just doing the free program, you’ve got some people who’ve sent me a few bucks for custom calorie and macronutrient recommendations, and NOW the online coaching via email program has gone live there’s more and more people doing that as well.

Well, the success stories are already starting to come in, so allow me to share a couple with you here.

Another Online Personal Training Success Story

This makes me pretty damn happy!

When people are already into fitness and training, it can make my job easier, or it can make my job harder.

Since they’re already in the habit of hitting the gym and paying attention to their nutrition, all they need is to be put onto the correct plan that will lead to continued or improved results. Often only slight course correction is required, rather than a drastic change in direction. Sometimes though, you get people who are set in their ways, and won’t adjust their approach no matter how frustrated they are with the lack of results. That makes things harder! But when they listen, my job becomes pretty easy.

Congratulations to Kate for putting in the effort and earning the results!
