Meet The Coach

Dave Hargreaves

That's me... circa 2017 at the world famous Doherty's Gym, in Brunswick. The other photos are of course of my new private gym.


  • Personal Trainer
  • Garage Gym Coach
  • Innovator In Sports Nutrition
  • I've been called a few other things too...

For those who don't already know, I started my personal training business around 2010 while still working in the security industry, and I mostly worked from Doherty's Gym, as well as a notable stint dividing my time between Brunswick and the La Trobe Valley, at Victory Fitness in Trafalgar and Reps Gym in Moe.


Very early on, before "Online Coaching" was really a thing, I started to get requests for programs from people around the world via my blogs or on social media. I tended to hear from a lot of younger athletes and fitness enthusiasts with concerns around recovery from (and avoiding relapse of) eating disorder, and that's something I have become known for, and passionate about.


Over the years my clients have also included other personal trainers and fitness instructors, nutritionists, dietitians, nurses, general practitioners, a professor of medical research... and a whole bunch of people who knew that they just did not want another "diet and calorie burning" program.


In July of 2018 I "sort of retired" from Personal Training at Doherty's on the strength of my Online Coaching business  and fulfilled my lifelong fantasy of moving as close as possible to Wilson's Promontory National Park. I've been training out of my private Garage Gym ever since, while continuing to support my clients from across the country and around the world.
