Born in 1981, my passion for sports and fitness started from a young age. I was like a fish to water and you could never get me out of the swimming pool. Swimming as a youngster took me from the school swim team to the local team and then to the county team where I trained and competed hard and had great success.
At the age of 8 and in preparation for a family holiday to a chalet in Avoriaz (Morzine, France), I quickly found my love of the ski slopes. I was lucky enough to live close to two dry ski slopes near my hometown in the UK. Despite being the only natural skier in the family, I managed to get away on many ski trips and I also started competing in the Slalom with my final National competition in Glen Shee (Scotland) at the age of 13.
Skiing proved to be rather impractical, so I focused on Swimming which took me on to captain my school team for two years, winning gold two years on the trot at the national championships held at Crystal Palace (London).
Whilst studying in London I started running and training in the gym completing numerous half marathons and then the London Marathon in 2013.
I qualified as a Gym Instructor and then as an Advanced Personal Trainer in 2010 at the Premiere Training Academy in London.
I was lucky enough to start my fitness career with the absolute best fitness and wellbeing company in the UK, Nuffield Health. My time with Nuffield Health took my experience and training to another level. I worked closely with health professionals and Physio therapists which is where I became really interested in injury rehabilitation and exercise prescription.
I finished my career with Nuffield Health as the manager of one of the flag ship fitness centres in the corporate sector working with some very high-powered individuals as my Personal Training clients.
It was in 2013 that I decided to set up my own personal training business in South West London (Dave Todd Personal Training).
For me life is one big adventure and life have brought me to a new adventure in France where I now live and work at a Virtual Personal Trainer. I now train clients from all over Europe including France, England, Switzerland, and Germany using my online platform. I have now been working at a Virtual Personal Trainer for 6 years from my Fitness Studio.
