“No (wo)man has the right to be an amateur in the matter of physical training. It is a shame for a (wo)man to grow old without seeing the beauty and strength of which his/her body is capable.”...Socrates
His classes are an expression of movement, catered for those who like to work hard and don’t mind an occasional dad joke!
Outside of teaching Pilates, David loves to run, take part in resistance training and watch movies.
