JCD Coaching

Training and coaching people to improve their health has been a huge part of my life since I went through my own major health transformation in 2013. That year I lost 60lbs and set my life on a path that I couldn’t have imagined beforehand. I now devote my life to training myself and others, using bodyweight training and calisthenics to achieve goals and change lives.


My qualifications include a range of Sport and Fitness qualifications and an honours degree in Sport, Fitness and Coaching from The Open University. On a daily basis I am actively working on improving my physical, mental and emotional health and I share everything I learn from my own journey with my clients.


When you start working with me you will quickly realise that I don’t just do what everyone else does; I won’t ask you to count calories, I won’t judge you on how much weight you have or have not lost, I won’t recommend miracle supplements and quick-fix weight loss remedies. I will help you learn what foods and activities are best suited to your mind, your body and your goals. No matter what your background is, what your goals are, or what yout current physical, mental and emotional limitations are, I want to challenge you and support you as you improve your health and physical fitness.

About My Classes

Glenboig Bootcamp has been in operation at Glenboig Village Park since August 2019. This outdoor fitness class provides attendees with a progressive approach towards High Intensity Interval Training, utilising strength training elements from calisthenics, crossfit and mobilising every joint in the body. All exercises have easier and harder progressions making Glenboig Bootcamp a fun and safe environment for all of the family. Bodyweight Bootcamp at Mount Vernon Park has been in operation since October 2021 and is just the first or what I hope are many Bodyweight Bootcamps operating around Glasgow. This class has the exact same format as my founding class in Glenboig, and my clients love it just as much!


As well as offering Bodyweight Bootcamp classes, I am a qualified Personal Trainer, offering 1-1 Personal Training, I also offer Strength and Conditioning sessions for athletes of a range of ages and disciplines, including figure skaters, rugby players and basketballers. I am available for 1-1 sessions throughout North Lanarkshire, East Dunbartonshire and East/Central Glasgow.
