Dan Osman BSc (Hons), Dip. ISSN, CISSN, ASCC
An experienced personal trainer, strength and conditioning coach, CISSN sport and exercise nutritionist, and PhD Nutrition sponsored athlete.
“Growing up I wasn’t very sporty or athletic, and as a teenager I was never comfortable in my own skin and in all honesty carried a little too much puppy fat with the low self-esteem, and confidence that went with it. Somewhere between 16 and 17 I discovered weight training and focused more on my nutrition, which brought about a new self-confidence, and the rest as they say is history.
After a spell of developing a passion for health and fitness I was introduced to Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ), Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) and Muay Thai - I was hooked! I can proudly say that the old school methods of training are still alive and well today and with reference to BJJ and MMA - Sink or swim! Being constantly paired with, and quite frankly manhandled by stronger, heavier and more experienced guys made me long to be stronger, faster and more powerful to keep up with them, which is where my passion for strength, conditioning and nutrition evolved”.
Dan is focused about getting results for his clients and combines a down to earth approach, with an unprecedented and asserting passion for fitness, health, nutrition and performance. Empowerment are key methods of Dan’s approach to coaching, giving his clients the tools they need to achieve real, tangible, life changing results.
