My first taste of working out! I died but I came back for more because I felt comfortable with the group and trainer! Love your work Des! Grateful to be part of StrengthTech I have learnt so much and hurt just as much too.

It's one of the hardest things I have done in my life and it's also the best. A lot of sweat and hard work. Des is with you every step of the way.

Des is a fantastic trainer and a strong role model for our team.  He can relate to our goals and believes that we can conquer them.
I love training with Strength Tech, the workouts are challenging and exciting with a great range that suits everyone's fitness level. I am proud to be a part of this wonderful team who train hard, support each other and also have fun, and Des as our trainer to keep us grounded and motivated.

Des is an amazing trainer who has traveled that road and walks the talk.  He runs structured sessions and always offers support. He is very motivational and knows what he is talking about. Des pushes you to do better than before to reach new goals and then smash them. He knows your abilities and works with that. The Strength Tech Crew are an awesome group of people each there for their own reasons for being there and are very supportive.

If anyone had of told me last year that I would be doing all these sets and Power lifting I would have laughed at them. Now I look forward to it. This is an ongoing journey, not bad for a 42 year old Mother of three, Grandmother of 3 and a half. It will only get harder and that's the best part.
