I was introduced to Turnfit by David Turnbull who at the time convinced me to come in for an introductory session with him and Turnfit. The first session was wonderful as David asked me all sorts of questions including what I was hoping to get out of my workouts with them. Nearing the close of the first session David told me that if I continued with them he would partner me with Ben one of his trainers. This is one of the biggest benefits of Turnfit, they have a trainer to match every type of person and personality. Instead of a trainer trying to take all clients for himself, David was more concerned with making sure my experience matched my personality. I couldn't be happier with his choice, Ben is a perfect match for me and watching some of the other Turnfit trainers I can see why he was such a good match for me but that one of the other trainers would be a better match for someone else. If you are looking to get fit with a training team that truly cares look no further that Turnfit!

I had a muscle quality test with Dave at Turnfit. I had a great experience. He explained why certain muscles may be stronger than others and showed me certain exercises to help me recover from an injury.

I had such an amazing experience with David from Turnfit. He was able to give me so much insightful and helpful information that I am super excited to put into practice. I am already feeling more confident and have felt a lot better in my last two work outs using his feedback to better my form and posture during my exercises. I would so highly recommend him and Turnfit just because there was a world of things I was doing wrong before that just from one session I have been able to correct a lot of my habits and be more mindful while working out.

I’d never met with a personal trainer until meeting with David, and while fitness can be an intimidating thing, David’s friendly demeanour and outlook really took the edge off. What I like about TurnFit is the knowledge the team has and how the idea is about alignment, fixing the small things to help with the big things, and doing what’s best for your body.I have a chronic back injury, pain in my right knee, and various other pains and David gave me tips about how to fix my posture, fix the way I’m walking, ways to stretch and relax my muscles in a way that helps these injuries and corrects my body and muscle alignment to prevent future injury.I would definitely recommend TurnFit if you’re looking for people who care about the building blocks of fitness and how to achieve your goals while treating your body well.

During my time at Turnfit, I had the privilege of having Kevin as my personal trainer. We would meet once a week to workout, and during our sessions, Kevin would advise me on everything fitness including nutrition, proper workout technique and form, and he would answer any questions I might have (and I asked a ton of questions). Different from other personal trainers, Kevin makes it a point to educate you on why you are doing an exercise and how it helps you become a better athlete. As a result of his approach, I never felt confused or unsure with what I was doing when working out on my own. Also, he was available to chat outside of our sessions if I ever needed anything so that's a plus. In short, his positive attitude and professionalism made working out an enjoyable experience, and I would recommend anyone wanting to get in shape to consider Kevin for their PT needs.

I found turnfit on facebook and followed their Instagram. I started to research and dig in deep to find out what exactly David was offering. After a few quick messages on Instagram we booked my first session.Not going to lie I was quite nervous as I am very out of shape at the moment. I was feeling very self conscious but I know I need help to get my body and mind back into shape.I met with David in Kitsilano at the gym where he trains out of. He is very kind and compassionate I knew this within our first 5 minutes of chatting. David clearly explained what the session consisted of and checked in to make sure I was comfortable and this was something that would work for me.He listened to my background story which I will post in the TurnFit Facebook Group for our members to get to know me better. He listened without judgment and shared his own struggles. I felt very comfortable and welcome at his gym.After we discussed everything David did a full 24 point muscle quality test checking for muscle imbalance. After that we moved to the gym floor and he showed me simple steps to correct my imbalances. He explained how to get to achieve goals my resetting my mind and body to healthy mode.The information was simple and I didn't feel overwhelmed. I now have joined his program and use the Turnfit App to track my progress at home. I am so excited to launch my fitness journey! Thank you, David and team TurnFit!

I started training with Kennedy at Turn Fit three months after hip surgery. I have been blown away with his attention to detail and focus on ensuring that I do things properly, as well as his incredible knowledge. I have trained regularly for over 20 years, but I feel that I have learnt more in the past couple of months about proper technique than I have over the rest of this time combined. It is amazing to have a trainer that is so focused on you and concerned with your personal goals. Highly recommend!

It's amazing how just modifying my posture slightly I'm able engage my glutes so much more effectively and this allows me to find proper engagement when performing all exercises. I've noticed an increase in my strength already because I'm able to perform exercises with the correct form.I recommend everyone go check these guys out even if it’s just for their assessment. Right now I know they have the assessment for only $33. Usually $270 and also a free month of online training. Use promo code LeighlaC 😊

I had a great experience working with Deborah. Tough but fair, engaging but challenging and able to adapt on the fly. I was looking for something other than the doing the same old exercises with weights and machines at traditional gyms that I’d been doing for years. Deborah was able to give me lots of variety with workouts that really pushed my limits. Highly recommended.

Had a great three months working with trainers Deborah and Sarah. Finishing up after my last session I definitely felt like I was ready to continue working on my fitness on my own and if I ever need a refresher I know that there are some friendly faces I can always come back and see. My goal was gaining a bit of weight and they were informative not only on what to do in the gym but also with dieting. People have already started noticing the difference! Very welcoming environment and a great way to get started in taking care of your body.

I have met a lot of personal trainers in my life and David is absolutely one of the best ones I have ever met! He not only focus on helping us loose weight and build muscles but also support us change our bad eating habits into a healthy one. But what I like the most about him is that he focus on helping women and he understands a busy mom who doesn't have time to workout 4 hours a week. He designs our programs according to our busy schedule and the best of all is that we can workout from our homes, or from the closest gym from our house, anywhere with his 24/7 assistance if we have any questions. Thank you so much, David for supporting our mom community!!

I have been training with David and his team for the last month. My trainers Deb and Sarah have been amazing, constantly challenging and encouraging me to reach further than I think is possible! The care and thought they put into program and exercise design is the right fit for my strengths and capacities. Somehow they design it so thar every session is fun and never boring, literally I don't know where the time goes:) My energy and mood has improved dramatically and I appreciate the Turnfit team for inspiring me to reach for my fitness goals!

Today was my initial consultation with David. I have known him for about 6 years when he was a personal trainer. Today, I would say he is much more than that. Thought leader or visionary now comes to mind when I think of him. It's quite inspiring to see how he runs his business. I was curious to see how Turnfit became the top rated personal training company in Vancouver and by the end of my consultation I could clearly see why his clients rave about him. I loved that he shared his story about why he supports the Heart & Stroke Foundation. So a bit about the consultation and facilities:David took time to find out my muscle density in 24 different body parts. He also took time to go over areas where I could improve and showed me simple exercises to strengthen those areas. As someone who spends a lot of time on the computer it is quite important to maintain good posture. It's pretty clear that David cares a lot about his clients and his team of trainers.The facility where Turnfit operates is one dedicated to personal training sessions. It's quite different than going to a big box gym (not that there's anything wrong with that). As someone who values their time, I could really see why people choose this over the regular gyms. The atmosphere is just better. People are working hard, having fun and not on their cell phones.I've had many free trials at big box gyms often leaving with a bad taste where it really just feels like a hard sale. If you're looking for a team that will educate you to get the results you want then check Turnfit out.

I am a client of the TurnFit Bikini Body Online Personal Training Program. I'm 64 years old and have just completed my second 12-week program. I have lost over 40 lbs, 20% of my former weight. I have become much stronger and healthier through the program. On my doctor's recommendation, I stopped my blood pressure medication after two months and, three months later, my blood pressure remains in the normal range. Coach David Turnbull and Coach Benjamin Gustafson are amazing! They design a nutrition plan and exercise plan personalized for your body type. You can reach out at any time for help with the program. You use their app to track your exercise plan and your progress and it includes messaging to your coach. You can also email and book calls with the coach whenever you need help. I am starting my third 12-week program to maintain my goals and to continue to get stronger. I highly recommend this program. It is doable and rewards you with fantastic results.

Three months ago, I had been interested in the idea of having a personal trainer/new program to follow and wasn't sure where I should go. I looked into so many places in Vancouver, but based on reviews, TurnFit was what I decided to try. Now here I am! :oI'd heard about TF's 12 week program, and was interested in being provided with daily workouts to follow, but thought it might be best to see someone in person as well. I met with David and he got me started with the app (in addition to working on my posture). He also got me started with Kevin, who I have been seeing for training once a week. (Kevin is awesome!!) The app has worked really well, and I like that I can just show up and a workout has already been planned for me.. it took that extra element of thought and planning out of it so that I could focus on other things (especially at first when I wasn't too sure how I should get started).I enjoy being in the gym again, I am healthier and my energy has been amazing. There have been so many benefits to this that I wasn't planning for. Highly recommend the TF team to anyone who wants to improve their fitness and/or lives in general. The trainers really go above and beyond when it comes to providing a well-rounded service and constant support; I know that they're there if I need to ask a question, 24/7.It's such a positive community/gym to be a part of. Definitely no regrets & am so happy I tried this - planning on continuing.Thanks Kevin, David and the rest of the TF team!

Seriously Epic! I never wanted to use a personal trainer. I felt like I could do it on my own but I was totally wrong!! Within my first hour with David, I learned how to breathe properly, stand properly, how to sit in my car and how to adjust my seat properly. Every tip I gained I will use for the rest of my life! He does video replay for you so you don’t forget specific workout movements and his advanced app testing he does at the beginning is really cool!He made me feel comfortable even with my insecurities! David has a calm and knowledgeable way of getting the most out of every workout! I seriously am truly grateful!!!

I met up with Mr David at his gym without expectations but left with some interesting ideas concerning bursitis in my right shoulder. I've spent thousands of dollars over the last 5 years with osteopathy, chiropractic, physiotherapy, and massage therapy to correct the problem and would say i've gotten to about 80% usability from where it was (which is great) but the last 20% eludes me. I've be told things like like the rotator cuff is dynamically unstable despite building significant shoulder strength in the gym with prescribed shoulder exercises. I've been told pinched nerves were the cause of my pain and practiced prescribed stretches to correct the problem as well. Instead of putting focus on the shoulder directly David suggested that poor core strength paired with some muscle imbalance could be the cause of my problem and that working to straighten my core which could noticeably be improved may help to alleviate the symptoms and possibly the cause of those symptoms in my shoulder. To my surprise, there was a sharp and almost immediate decrease in pain within a day of practicing a few simple static exercises flattening the curve in my lower back far away from my shoulder!!! such an unexpected result to learn a new strategy for pain management from a trainer when i've already been to so many people to solve the issue at hand. Mr Turnbull is not afraid to share his own struggles with mobility and fitness as he has much personal experience with the pain that can rise from neglecting your physical health. Turnfit can help you with more than just fitness goals and diet plans. Dave has a vision to go with it and its worth a serious look, especially if you read this whole review

I started training with TurnFit in the beginning of summer, with an idea to get a more toned and firm body by September. My experience so far has been very good. I have achieved the results I craved: my lower body area and my arms look better in pictures.My training has been designed around my personal goals with flexibility to try new exercises and include stuff that I like to do in the gym (for example, swinging Russian kettlebells or boxing). The studio is well equipped, and my trainer Kevin is knowledgeable and acknowledging my physical limitations and strengths. I feel like I get customized programs every time which makes sessions fun and not routine. By gradually increasing pressure and difficulty of the exercises Kevin pushed me to achieve results I couldn’t before. I find this personal and considerate approach to work best at the stage I am at in my fitness endeavors. I am pushed and motivated to do better, but I don’t feel exhausted and drenched of energy after training.I will continue personal training with TurnFit and would like to recommend it to anyone who seeks individual and creative approach in fitness, who wants to strengthen their body and mind.

My wife and I have been training with TurnFit and Kevin for the past 12 weeks. We've really enjoyed the variety in our workouts and the balance between the strength and cardio exercises. I've seen a noticable difference in almost every aspect of my day from the way I walk, sit or stand to the way I pick things up off the floor or lift things onto a shelf. Thank you Kevin and TurnFit for helping us towards our fitness goals.

David Turnbull not only has Turned Fit himself but is doing so for all those he works with. He brings a level of dedication, discipline and commitment to the people he trains that is just not found anywhere else. I so value his focus on corrective posture and movement through the training process that will help to build a lasting, injury free, goal oriented program that we would all benefit from no matter what skill level. Because of his professionalism, passion for teaching and his dedication to inspire I won't hesitate to send anyone over to him as well. As a Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine, I understand that healing is a mind/body/spiritual process. I can trust that my patients will be well taken care of with lasting changes through this empowering process he and his team offers. Thank you David Turnbull and the Turnfit team for your continued support in our community!

David & the TurnFit Team are a revelation. Communication skills, commitment to excellence and willing to accommodate client needs/circumstances are unparalleled. I've explored several other Vancouver-based trainers and found none to be nearly as motivated or multifaceted.From David's prompt email responses and openness to phone calls to his brilliant integration of apps such as Trainerize and MyFitnessPal everything has been A-1 from day one (with many more days to come).Do yourself a favour and get turned on to TurnFit!

I really enjoy training with David. Each session is a new challenge. His constructive pushing improves my performance and builds my confidence.I have been training with David since March of this year. He is very personable and dedicated. I get the impression that he is knowledgeable in what he does. His training is very challenging and at one time I did jokingly say that I hated him, but in reality I really enjoy the experience and am pleased with the results I am getting after all the torture he put me through. 😃😃😃

My initial appointment with David Turnbull was outstanding. Not only was the Muscle Quality Test extremely enlightening, but David was also very helpful providing me with great advice and "homework" to enable me to continuously work on myself, even outside of their gym. I would definitely recommend the Interview/Muscle Quality Test with David for anyone who has fitness goals, and/or just want to have a detailed fitness assessment as a bench mark for their own journey.

David is an absolutely AMAZING trainer! Before seeing him, I had never stepped foot inside a gym. I knew I wanted to make some lifestyle changes but I had no idea where to begin. He was welcoming, encouraging and supportive from the get go. I immediately felt comfortable with him! He came up with fitness goals that were attainable for me, given my incredibly busy schedule. I would 100% recommend him to anyone looking for a motivating trainer! You won't be disappointed.

I had a great introductory experience with both David and Deborah. Starting with what appears to be a solid benchmarking system to develop an optimal strategy that will best meet my needs. The first session was impressive and filled a lot of gaps in both my knowledge and my old workout routine. I'm excited to learn more and start gaining on my personal health goals and feel confident that the Turnfit team can help me achieve them.

I have been extremely happy with Kevin Lavers, my personal trainer; he is very professional and a kind and fun person. For the first time in my life, I have been exercising on regular basis owing to Kevin's continuous guidance and encouragement. Also, I appreciate David's (the owner's) support and organization, which makes the whole fitness experience hassle-free. Merci pour votre travail fantastique!

I've been working with Caroline from Turnfit for a few months now. She's helped me to gain confidence just to be in the gym. She's also helped me through a (lower back) injury and encouraged me to keep going and most importantly, kept me safe while training through it. I'm always excited to see her every week, even when she really kicks my ass! I'm excited by the progress I've made and will continue to make.

What surprised me most about Turnfit was how humble the trainers are. I had the pleasure of working out with David Turnbull and Kevin Lavers and enjoyed my time with both. They're both extremely personable and friendly, and the workout went by in a jiffy.David is also always trying new workouts which I like. I find many trainers especially at the big corporate gyms do not have the practical experience but just have a kinesiology degree. It's hard to take someone seriously when they look like they've never squatted in their life. I would highly recommend Turnfit personal training to anyone looking to get into strength training, slimming down, or anything in between. Although I would consider myself experienced (5+ years powerlifting, body building etc) I was pleasantly surprised at David's knowledge

I started training Muay Thai with Dave K from TurnFit. The difference between him and other trainers is how patient he is with explaining technique. He shows me in the best way for me to learn, and in a really short time, I've had a ton of "ah ha!" moments.I'm always stoked to train with Dave because he is fun, funny, and knowledgable. Even when I'm super tired going into our sessions, I'm super pumped afterwards. I really appreciate how technique-driven he is.I have already recommended him to a few of my friends, and they have all enjoyed his training style and personality too.This isn't my first experience with TurnFit. All of the other experiences, whether it's been online training with David T or one on one training with Dave K, I've always had a great experience.

If they say they are the best personal trainers, trust it, they are not making it up.Currently I am having a personal training process with Jesse who also teaches me how to do boxing. He's doing an awesome job in understanding your personal goals, customizing training sessions and being supportive through the entire period. They do everything to support you reaching your goal.Extremely highly recommended, won't regret it.===========================================================Here is the result after a full month of training. I came back just to update it. My muscle quality doubled, bfr lowers from 38 percent to 33 percent. Even though I went really aggressive on my training and diet, its still shocked me. Couldn't expect better.

I highly recommend TurnFit. I was instantly impressed with David's professional yet friendly demeanour, extremely knowledgable and experienced/skill based background and accommodating attitude. The tips he gave me in just the first initial consultation have been so beneficial and I still actually do them to this day! I love his online training programs which is what I have used in the past and am using today. As a busy Mom it gives me a lot of flexibility and freedom to do what I can through out my day. Thank you David and the team at TurnFit!

I have met a lot of personal trainers in my life and David is absolutely one of the best ones I have ever met! He not only focus on helping us loose weight and build muscles but also support us change our bad eating habits into a healthy one. But what I like the most about him is that he focus on helping women and he understands a busy mom who doesn't have time to workout 4 hours a week. He designs our programs according to our busy schedule and the best of all is that we can workout from our homes, or from the closest gym from our house, anywhere with his 24/7 assistance if we have any questions. Thank you so much, David for supporting our mom community!!

Booked a few sessions with Rob Moal, the “training manager”. Intro session went great, and I booked a workout for the following morning. Rob was adamant that “if you’re not 15 mins early, you’re late” and that respecting each other’s time was important.

Showed up the next morning for my workout, completed the warmup, and 2 mins after we were scheduled to start, got a text from Rob that he “messed up the times” and would be 15-20 mins late.

I guess that’s how much TurnFit respects my time.

I had such an amazing experience with David from Turnfit. He was able to give me so much insightful and helpful information that I am super excited to put into practice. I am already feeling more confident and have felt a lot better in my last two workouts using his feedback to better my form and posture during my exercises. I would so highly recommend him and Turnfit just because there was a world of things I was doing wrong before that just from one session I have been able to correct a lot of my habits and be more mindful.

My first experience with TurnFit was excellent! I have a significant amount of experience in the gym but knew I would learn new things in the first session. I was not disappointed. The focus on mobility and correct form was impressive and I can't wait to take what I learned to my daily work-outs.
You will be in good hands with this team!

It's amazing how just modifying my posture slightly I'm able engage my glutes so much more effectively and this allows me to find proper engagement when performing all exercises. I've noticed an increase in my strength already because I'm able to perform exercises with the correct form.
I recommend everyone go check these guys out even if it’s just for their assessment. Right now I know they have the assessment for only $33. Usually $270 and also a free month of online training. Use promo code LeighlaC 😊

I’ve come to know David quite well and would refer him absolutely due to his commitment, passion, and genuine and deep care for his clients and their long term results - both physically but also mentally and emotionally. His holistic approach to health is valuable for his clients and he promotes this well in all aspects of his programmes.

Couldn't be a better way to introduce yourself to the gym environment.

Both myself and others have noticed a difference in my physique as I get closer to my goals.

David Turnbull not only has Turned Fit himself but is doing so for all those he works with. He brings a level of dedication, discipline and commitment to the people he trains that is just not found anywhere else. I so value his focus on corrective posture and movement through the training process that will help to build a lasting, injury free, goal oriented program that we would all benefit from no matter what skill level. Because of his professionalism, passion for teaching and his dedication to inspire I won't hesitate to send anyone over to him as well. As a Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine, I understand that healing is a mind/body/spiritual process. I can trust that my patients will be well taken care of with lasting changes through this empowering process he and his team offers. Thank you David Turnbull and the Turnfit team for your continued support in our community!

He really cares and is passionate about helping people. I am already feeling stronger and my posture has improved!

I decided to try the 6 week on-line program with David from May 28 to July 8. I needed to get into exercising and eat healthier and get into better shape. The first day cardio exercise took an hour for me to do and what a tough workout that was. But after a few weeks it only took me about 34 minutes. Practice makes it better ! After exercising I had a ton of energy and felt great. I had to log everything I ate and learned a lot about the nutrition facts on the food that I was eating and the amount of calories I was taking in. After 6 weeks I lost 9 pounds and a total of 12 inches. I was so amazed at how I did thanks to David’s expertise coaching. I needed this Kick-start motivation and am very thankful for David’s encouragement and help to get me feeling great everyday and to keep fit for life. Thanks again Coach David.

It took me awhile to find a personal trainer to be comfortable with and to help me get to where I wanna be and after my first session with David I knew I wanted him as a long term trainer ! So full of knowledge and experience and really cares about you and your health. I am very excited to become a body builder and getting the proper diet from him has made me feel amazing and better about myself already. If anyone is trying to find a trainer and struggles to get healthy I %100 recommend David, won't be disappointed !

He checks up with me on a weekly basis and is always available for questions. Thank you David and I look forward to booking personal training sessions in the future.

I have completed a personal training program in the past, and know that not everyone on the training team, meets the goals they set for themselves. I have to say, that after meeting (On a weekly basis) with 6 people being trained by Turnfit, It impresses me to see how excited people are to hit their goals with David Turnbull’s team – it shows that with the right trainer, anything is possible! I can’t say enough about seeing his positive enthusiastic attitude, with him wanting to help everyone he can. I highly recommend Turnfit!

I've weight trained for over 20 years and have never used the service of a personal trainer until I met David and his team at TurnFit. Over the years my workouts had grown stale and and they were slowly losing steam. My body needed change, my mind desired stimulation and my spirit craved inspiration. Immediately David and his team helped revive and rejuvenate my workouts. His team member Deborah recharged my old, moderate boring workouts into intense, fast paced fun fitness sessions. The transformation I've experienced since investing in TurnFit has been a good reminder that you can't put a price on health and wellness. For me fitness truly is the spark that creates a zest for life. Thank you David for having a big enough vision that you continue to pour your heart and soul into the wellbeing of all your clients.

I was a collegiate athlete and in good shape but I wanted to target a few keys areas that I wasn't having success with on my own. I was worried about the cost benefit of a trainer. Well it's been 2 months and I'm thrilled! Not only have the work outs been targeting my trouble areas but I have seen results. Plus I'm getting more than just training, we've done body fat analysis (and follow up), he helps me stay on track with fitness pal and is available to answer my questions outside of training time - he truly cares that I get the results I want and I would recommend him to anyone with a goal!

I have trained with Deborah Coggles for 8 sessions and I am very pleased with the overall experience. I was asked to send my before photos from various angles along with details of my fitness goals and pictures of visually what I wanted to achieve. On our very first session she conducted a muscle quality/fat analysis and reviewed my goals. It was reassuring to know that she understood exactly what I wanted to achieve.

I have been asked to track my food intake for a month on Fitnesspal for analysis which I am excited to do. Even before they do the full analysis David periodically reviews your food intake and gives you feedback, and recommendations to better achieve your goals.

Deborah is motivating, personable and knowledgeable. The first few sessions were slower as she emphasized form and technique and introduced new movements. But now as I am becoming familiar, we are really picking up the pace and I am seeing little results already. I am excited to continue to work with Deborah in achieving my health and fitness goals.

As someone who is very active, and who takes their training seriously I know the difference between a really good trainer and someone who shows up and picks random exercises for their clients to do. TurnFit, specifically David is a top tier trainer who designs workouts that are unique to each individual in order to help them achieve their personal goals. I would recommend David and his team to anyone looking for a personal trainer. Both seasoned gym goers & people who are new to fitness will benefit greatly from the time spend with the folks at TurnFit.

I was training with David and Ben, the TurnFit team for 3 times (12 sessions). I know him cause we are working out in the same gym. I also saw David, he trained his clients and they got a big results. So I was so envy about that. One day, we were talking about the fitness competition. He encouraged Jacquie and me to do it. Yes, we did and started training since last October. He made us a diet plan and workout plan. They were very useful for me to lose weight. And for a while, I was struggling into it, he encouraged you, and analysis about my body. And I started private training with him and Ben, they are excellent, they made you high intense workout for my belly problem as I requested. It was really work for me. Even it was a working hard but I do like it. In the training, it was not just a workout, it also like a game, I felt enjoying with them, funny and warm. They are very knowledgeable, give you all the information you wanted. Now my lifestyle changed, healthier and I will keep them as my priority personal training team. Thank you, David and Ben the TurnFit team.

David from Turnfit came highly recommend by one of my friends which has seen great results while working with him. Even though I worked out regularly and ate relatively clean, I didn't have the body that reflected the time I spent in the kitchen nor the gym which is why I reached out to David. He put me on a personalized meal and workout plan and has continued to tailor it to my goals and dietary changes. David is very personable and has always responded quickly to any questions that I've had. You can tell he truly enjoys his work as a personal trainer and wants to see his clients succeed. So far I am happy with my progress and will continue to work with David!

They asked everything I do for activity, when I get up and go to sleep, when I workout and how much stress I have. Also weekly photos to see my transformation. David was able to create a custom plan for my needs along with supplements that they take and trust themselves. I learned about how important supplements are and how to reach my goals. Thanks bud!

Besides his kind demeanour, he has a genuine interest in your physical transformation and really focusses on a plan that is fully suited to you. Along with the effective training program he designs for you and teaches you, he also offers great advice and insight on nutrition which is integral in one's success. The gym that David works out of - Ron Zalko - is also a great environment to train in. I came across David through a Groupon offering which I have completed, but I am signing up with David again in the very near future.

David is an awesome personal trainer. When you train with him, you can tell that he really cares about you and helping you meet your goals. He connects with you in a friendly and caring way and tries to get to know you as a person. When you go to David, it doesn't feel like you are going to a trainer who is trying to get through the session, but instead you feel like he values the time that you are there, and does his best to make sure he is teaching you how to continue to do his exercises on your own as well. I have attended a few personal training sessions in Vancouver, and David was by far the best one I have seen.

I've had personal training sessions with David for about a year. I've never worked with any other personal trainers, so it's hard for me to compare, but in my experience David was very dedicated and enthusiastic, as well as quite friendly. He paid attention to my needs and designed a routine that suited me. He also gave good advice about other aspects of health such as nutrition. It was my pleasure working with him.

I have had the pleasure to train and be coached by David a number of times over the past year. David is by far the best trainer I have come across since moving to Vancouver.

David is very dedicated and passionate about what he does; he is always willing to put in as much time needed to obtain a clients goal. I've always appreciated David for his REALISTIC approach to training. He is very encouraging, motivating, and knowledgeable about what he does!

I highly recommend David as a trainer, you will not be disappointed. If you want a motivating personal trainer who makes getting fit fun and empowering... this is your guy!

I posted this on yelp, but David is so awesome, I will do it here too:

David (owner of TurnFit) is by far the best trainer that I trained with. I'm a young guy and my biggest problem with going to the gym was motivation - David was able push through it. He went an extra mile to make sure that I actually enjoy the experience and that what made me come back to the exercising routine again and again.
I highly recommend David and his protege.

Not only am I achieving my fitness goals, the byproduct of healthy living has made life much more enjoyable. David has implemented the basic fundementals of clean eating and a strict workout structure to my every day life which has allowed me to not only surpass some of my goals but to acheive the level of fitness I did not think could ever reached. His effective coaching style had pushed me through the times I was unmotivated and making excuses but also pushed me further in my moment of triumph. Well worth the time and investment Turnfit has made me a new confident and fit person. Thanks Dave

David is a great personal trainer! He is very knowledgable in many areas of how to become fit and how to be your healthiest self. He is very encouraging and inspiring! Your going to "hate" him for being SO amazing, he pushes you hard!!

I'm a personal trainer, and even personal trainers need good coaching and accountability. I love working with David because he is extremely supportive; there is not one ounce of judgment from him. He is so approachable and knowledgable.

He has helped me on so many occasions, but in particular, he has really helped me with my nutrition. For example, yesterday I had a terrible sleep, and I had to wake up at 4am today. I might've gotten 2 hours of sleep, BUT because of this new nutrition plan, I was still energetic for my clients and my workout! Even more, the plan he has given me has helped me to recover from my injuries at an almost rapid pace. My overall quality of life is much better.

I have him to thank for changing my life!

Until I started working with David, I'd never really seen the point of a personal trainer. I was working out on my own and doing a decent job of keeping fit, but working with David upped my fitness to the next level. He shared his wealth of knowledge, offered his support and encouragement, and got me visible results I hadn't been able to produce on my own!

David is the best personal trained I've had! I am currently preparing for Miss Universe Canada and his motivation and drive are encouraging me every session we have. He really makes me want to be the best version of myself. What is great about David is he is also so helpful in explaining each exercise to me and how it will help. He always has wonderful insight!
