Daley Denning

I am Axminster’s health and fitness team leader and Sport and exercise has always been a massive part of my life.  My first interest was in team sports, when I started playing Rugby, Football and Cricket for local teams and instantly loved it.  I then started to train myself to try and improve my performance, mainly looking at cardiovascular work and muscular endurance.  At 15, I competed in the regional cross country championships and began to base my training around this.  I have been working in the leisure industry for 4 years, in which time I have thoroughly enjoyed helping people to achieve their own personal goals whatever they may be, showing great interest in all areas of fitness from sports specific to bodybuilding.  You enjoying your training sessions is my top priority!

Customer stories

This year I entered my fourth Race for Life and decided to walk the first part, then aim to run towards the finish of the 5K course.  After the first few hundred yards my friend remarked that I seemed much fitter than in previous years.  I explained that I have been helped by a personal trainer, Vladka Juroskova in Honiton for some time now and that her careful and thorough guidance had made a such great difference. Although I started from the back of the pack, we finished the course in just under 60 minutes, and by then not at the back!

So thank you, Vladka, all your efforts and patience are much appreciated.  I am really looking forward to the next race in 2018!
