In the sessions I’ve had with Dave I’ve definitely realised that my mind is a far more powerful tool than my body both on and off the field.

The most important lesson I’ve learnt from Dave so far is to be unrealistic in goal setting, I’ve really taken that on board this season and the results have followed.

Working with David has been a blessing, we have been working together for over 3 years. I have learnt a lot about Mental Performance and how to apply this into my training and on the field in competition and also on a personal level.

Every session  we have, there is always something more to learn and take on board on how I can prepare mentally for games and destroy goals.

Cheers David, God has definitely blessed you.

David’s quote I will always take with me, “what is done in the dark, will soon shine in the light”

Strength and Conditioning Coach

I have known David for a number of years and during this time I have been a strength and conditioning coach for Richmond and Pt Chev Rugby League Topside teams, plus I run my own CrossFit gym.

David has been the guy I get for all our teams and athletes for that extra focus and guidance.

David has been a top athlete himself so understands and relates to our athletes and takes the time to go the extra mile, he is big in Stature with a big heart.
