How Dave Has Managed To Change His Life!

People of the DVCC, People of fitness

“I work odd shifts, 4 on 4 off, so I don’t really have a weekend. I was very much the same as most people - Thinking “Oh, I must do something” but you never do…


…I’ve got diabetes. I’ve had it for 12-15 years but never really took it seriously. I have an assessment every year and over the past few years it has been slowly getting worse.



Last year was a real wake up call. The doctor said that if things haven’t improved by this year - I could be looking at insulin.

You really don’t want to be in that position…So I started a trial at The DVCC.

I started coming here in August, and had my annual assessment coming up in September. I remember thinking - if he didn’t like it last year, definitely not going to like this year!

But sure enough, I went for my medical and the doctor said: “Two words David. Bloody amazing! What happened?!”

I said I’ve changed my lifestyle. I go to the gym two or three times a week, and I’ve started doing so much other stuff. I’ve learned to swim properly - I’m up to a mile now and I walk a lot now, I’ve just walked from Northampton to Wellingborough (12+ Miles!).

It just makes you think, you can cheat at cards, you can cheat at a lot of things, but you can’t cheat yourself! That’s why I need that accountability!”



Do you feel intimidated by normal gyms?

The big box impersonal gyms leave you feeling awkward, and lacking motivation to lose weight and get fit.

The DVCC is for men and women who want to lose weight, get fit but don't want to do it in a normal big box gym.

We know it's important. We just don't know where to start.
