Testimonials

“It’s difficult to describe the impact that anxiety can have on you, but thankfully you don’t need to with Daniel – he gets it. His deep understanding of the causes and effects of anxiety were clear from the moment we began to talk. I contacted Daniel when I was at a very low point, with anxiety impacting every area of my life. I was finding it difficult to enjoy anything and was struggling with work. Coming back from an ankle operation, I was also trying to find my way back to physical fitness. We met for an intro session and Daniel’s knowledge, experience, compassion and motivation to help convinced me immediately to sign up for the DTWellbeing programme. This was exactly what I needed. Through the programme, Daniel helped me to find my feet again. Through focusing firstly on the basics, and then tailoring the programme to my specific needs, the improvement even in the first few weeks was incredible. Using exercise as both a tool to manage anxiety and as an opportunity to talk through issues is a powerful combination, and Daniel uses this to great effect. I continue to work with Daniel, and his infectious enthusiasm and drive, coupled with a high level of expertise, have allowed me to get back to a normal life and to feel like myself again. I would recommend the DTWellbeing programme to anyone that finds themselves in a similar position." -

Daniel came to Mount Anville Secondary School to speak to our 5th Year cohort as part of our ‘Minding my Mind’ week in October 2018. Daniel captured the interest of the students with his engaging, relevant and age-appropriate presentation, with a delivery that was charismatic and thought-provoking. Daniel kept the students mentally engaged by continuously including them in his presentation through questioning and asking for their contributions. The presentation educated students on signs of mental ill-health, coping strategies on how to deal with having off-days, advice on how to help a friend/family member who seems to be struggling, and information on where to go for more help if needed. We loved the emphasis Daniel put on the importance of physical activity in contributing to overall wellbeing and how closely intertwined physical and mental health are. The students were given practical, easy to remember take-home strategies which they can use daily to make sure they are being self-aware and taking care of their wellbeing, e.g. "Core 4" and 5,4,3,2,1 awareness/mindfulness activity. Daniel's presentation was not only beneficial for the students but also for the members of staff who attended. I would highly recommend Daniel as a keynote speaker for adults, teenagers and children in relation to any physical activity/mental health/wellbeing topic. His passion and love for this topic and people is genuine, which is obvious from the moment he speaks!” -

“I got a 6 week plan off of Daniel and I can safely say that it was well worth my money. I got specific exercises for what I wanted to achieve in the gym and how to go about doing them. Daniel checked in with me every week, asking how I was doing and to keep me motivated. Since then, I’ve been using the same plan that Daniel gave me and I’ve learned enough in the gym to start throwing in my own exercises! Daniel’s plan was great to get me started and after that, I got so hooked on it that I’ve kept it up and I am loving it!! I’m in the best shape I’ve been in and I’m not stopping yet! Daniel is always available for a quick text if you’re struggling with something, which is great. If you are thinking about going to an Online Coach, go no further!” -

When I first availed of Daniel’s PT service, I wasn’t quite sure what I was getting myself into. As a young woman with an intellectual disability these situations can sometimes be difficult for me. However, I found Daniel’s enthusiasm, energy and positivity very infectious. Daniel gave me a new confidence in my physical capabilities. He had high expectations of me and made the experience fun as well as hard work. He believed in me and this helped enormously when I struggled. With Daniel’s help and support I reached limits that I never thought possible. I am very happy to recommend Daniel’s services to anyone who is embarking on a fitness training program for health and fitness or to reach specific goals.” -

“I’d like to positively recommend Daniel Twomey in his capacity as a personal trainer. I worked with Daniel on a 6-week upper body strength and body composition programme, which was the first sustained PT programme I have undertaken. I was more than satisfied with my experience, and with Daniel’s support. Daniel demonstrated versatility in his training, adaptability in terms of my specific needs and goals, and professionalism in his demeanour and support of me as a client. Having engaged with a number of fitness programmes over the years and found them lacking, I can unreservedly say that programme with Daniel has resulted in the most genuine and sustained improvement in my fitness, diet and competency in the gym that I’ve ever experienced. I feel that the programme has afforded me a marked improvement in both my physical and mental wellbeing and has given me tools, and a roadmap, for further development that I’m excited to engage with. I’m happy that the investment, both personally and financially, that the programme required was worth it, and I’d be happy to recommend Daniel as a trainer to any future clients.“ -

“I went to Daniel for personal training when I was living in Sydney, Australia. I found Daniel to be very focused, highly motivated and extremely knowledgeable of the fitness industry. Daniel tailored a program to my wants and needs. I thoroughly enjoyed our sessions together and would definitely recommend him to family & friends.” -

Daniel’s HIIT classes are my absolute favourite.. Before he started at my gym I would only do the 30 minute classes as I never liked the extra 15 minutes! I now always try and go to his 45 minute ones as he keeps it fun, interesting and always gets me in the red zone without fail! I always feel like I have done a satisfying workout.. He is excellent at explaining the exercises, always giving you regressions and progressions options with each station. Thank you for giving me motivation and pushing me that little bit harder each class 🙏🏽” -

“I trained with Daniel over the course of six weeks and what an absolute game changer it was. I was quite dubious to take up PT again as I had some unfortunate experiences previously but I am so glad that I did. Over the course of six weeks, I saw huge positive changes in the way that my clothes fitted, my energy levels, my anxiety and my general wellbeing. I went to Daniel for toning up before a holiday but I actually received so many other benefits than just toning up. Daniel is a fantastic PT, life coach and educator. I would recommend Daniel to any one who is looking for a Personal Trainer.”  -

"When I first arrived at Daniels HIIT class I assumed it was going to be the same thing as all the other generic classes I had been too. But I was quick to realise that it was different. The intensity and energy he brought to the class caught everyone’s attention from the get go and I knew I needed to up my game. Speaking clearly and concisely he demonstrated all the exercises that would be included in the class and set high expectations to make every rep count and focus on form not just simply going through the motions. Daniel pushes everyone including himself to get the most out of a 45 minute class. Not only does he have a killer playlist but also he makes sure there’s room for a bit of craic too as long as you’re not slacking on the workout. I couldn’t recommend him more as an instructor, his energy and enthusiasm is infectious!" -

"I contacted Daniel after I had come across his social media when I was looking for some personal training and was also interested to learn from someone who I thought stood out in terms of his determination to help others. I can say I have never been more impressed by anyones authenticity and good nature as Daniel and I had the pleasure of working with him on a productivity & wellbeing program recently where he taught me many valuable lessons on wellbeing and getting the most out of myself in my career. He is excellent in his knowledge of wellbeing and fitness, excellent at teaching people how to improve and also a great guy to talk to. I believe hiring him is one of the best things you could do whether you are an individual, group or organisation, young or old. A true role model for young people in Ireland." -

“Daniel visited our school in May 2018 as part of our Mental Health Awareness week. He took the time to speak to all of our year groups (approx. 1200 students) in turn. Each group was captivated by what Daniel had to say. His presentation was engaging, active and extremely relevant to the students, and his enthusiasm, energy and positivity is infectious. Though our week was focused mostly on Mental Health, Daniel showed how caring for our wellbeing overall was the first step to positive mental health. His honesty with regard to his own experiences was inspiring. It really struck a chord with all who heard him speak. He gave genuine, simple advice to students to help them care for their wellbeing. (His ‘Core 4’ is a message which we still use around the school today) He showed them that there is always hope and students of all ages, backgrounds and circumstances left feeling positive and enthusiastic about caring for their wellbeing. When reviewing our week, his visit was frequently mentioned as a highlight. I would highly recommend having Daniel visit your school, business, workplace, event....whatever the case may be! You will be all the better for it!” -

"I was really happy with the six week Personal Training course I did with Daniel. All of my goals were fulfilled and I was very happy with my results. My main goal was to become stronger and Daniel helped me feel much stronger, both physically and mentally. I feel much healthier than I did before I started. Daniel also educated me in terms of what I needed to do in the gym and how it would help me. I felt I made great progress especially when I compare where I am now to where I was at the beginning of the program. My mental health has improved over the course of the few weeks in terms of my energy levels and stress levels. I felt like the exercise impacted positively on clearing my head. I feel a lot fitter and happier thanks to Daniel." -

"My experience of DTWellbeing is a happy one. I went to Daniel nervous to ask for help with training and I was instantly put at ease. As we spoke about my targets for the program, it was clear that they would be achievable as clearly he is very well educated and I also knew I'd feel comfortable regardless of my ability of training with him. First impression is just that he's a nice guy. Over time I became very comfortable around him and enjoyed spending an hour training with him. The training was very focused to exactly what I wanted and he also gave me multiple little hacks to make things easier for myself. What makes DTWellbeing different and makes it head and shoulders above any other PT service I've ever heard of, is Daniel's genuine interest in you as a person, your interests and your mental health. I would feel comfortable, even now having finished a program with him, talking to him about personal issues, stuff I probably wouldn't talk about in another situation with anyone. Honestly, even going and spending an hour with him would give me good vibes. If I had a bad week in college/work I'd book in with Daniel and just absorb the positivity that radiates from the guy. I have experienced a serious change of mood from working with the man and picked up some nice quotes from him too! Overall I thoroughly enjoyed it and would 10/10 recommend DTWellbeing to anyone looking for personal training or anyone who is just upset." -

“Daniel was invited to the Innovation Academy at UCD to talk about his entrepreneurial journey but gave us so much more. He inspired and explained so that we had not just an understanding of his business, but life tips to implement that we tested there and then. The word that springs to mind to describe his words in action approach is INSPIRING. He walks the walk AND talks the talk. A truly authentic speaker that will connect and elevate your audience. Wholeheartedly recommend him as a speaker and we will definitely be inviting him back to inspire us more!“ -

“Daniel is an excellent public speaker and advocate for wellbeing. Daniel spoke to both the Psychological Society and Yoga Society of Trinity College Dublin and was able to engage the crowd and keep interest high throughout our event. Daniel gave some great advice about stress-management, without being too technical or verbose. His story-telling style made his techniques for self-care very easy to remember and understand. As a listener, I could easily identify with his stories and I particularly liked his views regarding the need to de-stigmatise issues relating to mental health.” -

“One of the entrepreneurs talks I found very interesting was Daniel Twomey’s. I found his personal reasons for doing what he is doing now inspiring. Daniel suffered severely with his own mental health when he was younger, he now tries to help people through fitness and wellbeing with his business DTWellbeing. He believes if something like his business was around when he was younger, he would have really benefited from it. Daniel`s reasons behind setting up his business were admirable." -
