The Dynamic journey began many years ago when our founder and lead coach Adam dreamt of being a professional footballer.
It was important to him to make his family proud, particularly his Grandad whose words of wisdom stick with him to this day – “You will be the one to make it son”.
That motivated Adam to go out, train hard and ultimately climb the footballing ladder. He played and trained at various levels including Sunderland AFC, Middlesbrough, and Manchester United’s academies. That gave him exposure to the very latest developments and thinking in training techniques, and the personal discipline required to achieve peak performance in both a physical and mental health capacity too.
Upon signing terms with Sunderland AFC when he left school, Adam lived life as a professional sportsman and all that entails. The expectation, pressure, high standards, and meticulous attention to detail and preparation.
It was tough to see the lifelong dream not go exactly to plan – it’s a hard business and the margins between making it in football are very fine! After a very tough time reflecting and thinking about what could have been, Adam then had to re-purpose his whole life and career choices.
The burning desire to help others achieve their potential meant he sought out a career in lifestyle, health and fitness coaching.
The educational side was a newfound aspect that brought great enjoyment. Thriving and flourishing in the new ways of working, Adam then climbed the health ladder with some of the biggest names in the industry.
It was within these environments that Adam realised that the mass participation and ‘no pain no gain’ or ‘squat til you drop’ mentalities were not fruitful to a holistic outlook on personal wellbeing, and in some cases caused more damage than good.
Dynamic has a broader outlook and perspective that considers every aspect of personal wellbeing – healthy nutrition, mental, and physical health.
Everything doesn’t need to be 100 miles an hour or 100% to be a success, it is about balance, fun, finding what you enjoy using a holistic approach, and understanding what you need as an individual.
Our main aim is to change peoples’ perspective from the ‘no pain no gain’ approach to a dynamic stress-relieving holistic approach and we’d love to share this approach with you.
