About NUYU

David Meakin
Coach

I left school at the age of 16 with no qualifications and no drive or ambition to make a success of myself. I worked for around 2 years in dead end jobs, one of them being as a porter in a hotel in Sutton Coldfield. Whilst in this role, I was informed that the hotel were to have a health and fitness club opening up in the grounds. Something resonated with me and I pursued a role in the health club. This is where I found my passion for the industry. I invested my own time and money in educating myself and obtaining the qualifications required.

I then spent 10 years working for many big name chains of health clubs and even a number of prestigious sporting clubs where I trained sports
professionals. I have recently been working alongside a team of physiotherapists at the Priory Hospital in Edgbaston. My bank of qualifications has, and continues, to grow as I strive to ensure I am at the forefront of new and effective ways of training. I have studied Sport & Exercise Science, Sports Massage Therapy and trained with some of the industry’s leading experts such as Paul Chek. My thirst for helping clients achieve their goals never dries up. During these 10 years, I began forming my own beliefs of how the health and fitness industry should be helping members but also why they were not being effective. As my frustrations grew, I started to formulate my own beliefs and systems about how to help people achieve their goals. I soon realised that the holistic approach made the most sense. This approach looks at the body as a whole and not only recognises the importance of the physiological, psychological and mechanical factors but also to have real success requires focusing on the mind and body. I started looking for better ways of coaching my clients and noticing what was working the best.

I have now formulated a plan built on my beliefs, experiences and qualifications. I have been able to apply and refine my system over the last few years which has helped many people achieve their goals. I have now formulated a system that gives members simple information that can be applied into any lifestyle that is highly effective because we also offer the support systems along with the workouts that enables members to truly succeed. Our system is innovative in both our coaching styles, programme design and the equipment we use, making the sessions more engaging, fun and successful and what members will quickly realise is that we are building a community that cares and supports one another.

We want to ensure that we can maintain a high level of personal coaching with each participant when they need it. Our focus is on coaching our members, not just providing them with a workout.
Nutritional coaching is a major part of what we offer all our members because if you don’t fuel your body correctly your results just won’t happen. Our focus is on nourishing the body through a balanced nutritional plan. Our national system will be altered to suit each individuals needs to ensure that you achieve your goals in a safe and healthy way.
