Team DMD Fitness

Personal Training

First of all, congratulations on completing step 1 by reading this far you have already taken the first step in getting yourself a new PT.

Welcome to DMD Fitness – where we go the extra mile to help you achieve your fitness goals! If you’re here, you’ve probably been thinking about working with a personal trainer. Let’s talk about the next steps.

Before we start, I need two things from you: honesty and commitment. Tell me if you’re struggling with your diet, workout, or any other challenges. The more you share, the more we can work together to overcome any obstacles. This is a two-way street, and trust is essential.

If you’re ready to make a commitment, let’s chat! We’ll meet over coffee or tea to discuss your goals. If we’re a good match, we’ll start working together.

We’ll create a personalised plan that includes your goals, your exercise preferences, and your schedule. Small goals add up to big results, so we’ll break them down into achievable steps. And we’ll make sure you enjoy the process – fitness should be fun!

If you’ve used our calorie calculator, we can use that information to create a nutrition plan that works for you. And I’m always here to answer your questions and provide support along the way.

We’ll check in weekly to catch up and make any necessary adjustments. Remember, we’re a team – let’s work together to achieve your goals!

As a personal trainer, I believe that an energy balance is crucial, but the types of food you eat and your protein intake are equally important. Try the calorie calculator below for free to get an idea of your optimal calorie intake:

About Me

Hey, I’m Daniel MacDonald and I am a lifelong resident of Taynuilt. I have always been passionate about sports and have been involved in helping organize sporting challenges for all levels of fitness across Scotland.

I started Team DMD Fitness to help people achieve their fitness goals and experience the incredible benefits of physical activity. I have had the pleasure of working with some amazing clients and over the years have helped them tackle all sorts of barriers and challenges on their fitness journey. Together, we’ve achieved some impressive fitness goals and I’ve been able to use my personal training expertise and life skills to make a real difference in their lives.

For me, being a personal trainer is not just about passion, but an outlook on life. It’s about helping people reach their goals and seeing them smash those goals with a smile on their face. There’s nothing better than knowing I can help change someone’s life and help them see the potential inside themselves. That’s why I love fitness, wellbeing, and being a personal trainer.

What People Say About Me

Dan copes well with my whinging and is always happy to adapt exercises when aches and pains stop me doing certain moves. The class is really supportive & friendly and is as important to me socially as it is physically.
Dan's classes are absolutely great. He's so enthusiastic and really supports you to do your best and keeps you going outside of class too with brilliant challenges.
Great classes to get along to with exercise options for all abilities. It is one of them classes where it is as hard as you want it to be and Daniel’s ability to get you to push yourself that wee bit further every week is brilliant.
DJ Barr
Dan's class is energetic, engaging and fun for all. You will always leave class with sore legs, arms, body and a big smile on your face.
I’ve been climbing mountains all over the world for the last 40 years and Dan's classes are a big part of keeping doing that.
Dan's a great coach. Tailors the class to everyone's abilities. No one young or old, fit or unfit, would feel out of place. The more the better the the craic!

A wee bit of info on the classes

After you come along to class you will be added to our class group chat, we keep everyone up to date with events and each other this is a safe space for you to voice your opinion on class likes/dislikes, things you like to work on and ideas you may have for a class and just to have a wee chat. After all, without you guys there would be no class so it as much your class as it is mine ☺ Your input and comments are very important as we are a team which is working together to reach our goals.

We also run monthly and weekly challenges within the chat with prizes to win, donated by local businesses like hotel vouchers/free points, shop vouchers and days out.

If this is something you like to get involved with, please get in touch.
