Personal Trainer Richmond Hill
In home training & Virtual training.
David became a personal trainer in 2013, after retiring from a 34-year career as a meteorologist with Environment Canada. At that time, he thought personal training would offer greater insights into his role as a karate instructor. It also gave him an opportunity to work with his parents who wanted to remain living independently at home.
Over the years, Dave has run various fitness classes for those over 55, in addition to workshops on stretching, foam rolling, and looking after your low back. He has successfully worked with many clients referred to him by a chiropractor, most with low back issues. David has also run bootcamps, been a karate instructor, and a nationally certified karate coach.
Dave is acutely aware of how difficult it is to begin a fitness program after decades of inactivity. He began karate in his mid-forties, increasing his strength, cardio capacity, and flexibility while losing 20 pounds. He remains passionate about helping others discover and enjoy the same benefits of a more active lifestyle that he has found himself. David enjoys a range of activities, including hiking, ballroom dancing, and gardening.
I have been referring patients to Dave McCulloch for personal training for the past few years. David is a very dedicated and hard-working professional. Every client that he sees receives a thorough assessment. Dave's keen eye for detail and nuances allows him to pick up very important information about each individual which he then analyses thoroughly. Based on his assessment he then creates a very specific and unique training program for that client. From the assessment to the development of the training routine, Dave keeps me apprised constantly and is always seeking my input to ensure that we are working together in harmony. It never ceases to amaze me how intuitive Dave is with his constant review of client's needs and ability to implement training protocols in the most professional manner. It goes without saying that the feedback that I have received from every client I have referred has been outstanding. Dave works hard with his clients, my patients, and the results are quite evident. I am very pleased and every single situation as I know he is doing excellent work. I recommend Dave highly as a consummate professional in the field of personal training and I will continue to refer my patients/clients to him for years to come.
At the beginning of 2018, I made a significant decision to release my self from chronic lower back pain. To do so, I had to get myself in shape, excellent shape. I was lucky enough to be introduced to a certified personal trainer - Dave McCulloch.
From my first session with Dave, I knew that I would be pain-free soon! Also, I got the feeling that with his help and with my hard work and commitment, I will be back to my twenties. During the year, I've seen Dave putting heart and effort into my progress and improvement. Dave's sessions and all his unique approach have become part of my weekly life. Dave is one hundred percent focused and never fails to motivate and inspire me in every session. Furthermore, his energy, knowledge, passion, and desire to help others is infectious and energizing!
