I worked with David after finishing treatment for breast cancer. He helped me to understand how to improve my strength and fitness in a safe way as well as helping me to improve mobility in my affected arm.
David’s broad knowledge of both fitness and anatomy made me feel reassured that I was in good hands. I would recommend David’s services to fellow oncology patients who might be apprehensive about getting back into exercise.
Since we have been working together, I have not only been void of all injury - which notoriously has plagued my career - but also importantly, I have transformed as an athlete.
My form as a sprinter alongside my speed, speed endurance, power and strength have all increased dramatically over the last two years. I have also raised up the ranks in both 200m and 400m disciplines, gaining my first senior vest competing out in the Doha World Championships in the GB 4x400m team.
Shelayna has been my PT for the past 5 years and has become indispensable to me in building a sustainable workout programme. Her focused and well planned approach to each session ensures my sessions are specifically geared to areas I need to work.
Shelayna possesses the unique ability to push me beyond my comfort zone as her calm and methodical approach gives me the confidence to believe the results I hope for are achievable. I cannot recommend her highly enough!
Working with David over the last 12 months has reignited my love for exercise seeing the improvements in my strength, endurance and especially technique was the confidence boost I needed.
It is great to have a detailed plan with a clear path laid out. I really like the way David breaks down all the science in an easy to understand way!

I came to SOC in May of 2020 looking to get faster and stronger going into my football pre season. No gym access? No problem. SOC worked with what I had and gave me sessions that were exactly what I needed- I saw results quickly as well.
Once the gyms reopened the work didn’t stop, it only go better! SOC knows exactly how to plan sessions to make sure you are ready for competition or pre season. Their knowledge of the science AND the application means that there is always a rhyme and reason for what you’re doing and when you’re doing it.
I have been working with these guys for almost a year and have seen more progress in my strength and speed over this short space of time than I ever have previously in my sporting career!
Their knowledge is beyond any coach I have worked with before and he is able to apply this technical and physiological knowledge into a language that every athlete can understand.
