Our mission is to make fitness fun, accessible, and help you live a better life
Hi, I'm David, the founder of The body Shapers. My biggest battle in life was growing up as 'the bigger kid'.
I wish I had better photos to really show it, but the truth is I used to hide from photos like my life depended on it.
My nickname in my soccer team was 'cheeseburger' and it left me struggling with confidence for most of high school.
The one thing I'm most grateful for in my life is finding the life-changing power of the gym at 17.
I was scared at first because I was so insecure about my body, but I had a personal trainer help me get started and before I knew it I was hooked.
I replaced 15kg's of fat with confidence and finally found ambition in my life.
It led me to found The Body Shapers so I can help others have the same transformation.
