Richmond-Active was founded in 2007 on the intuition of a young sporting Devon boy who since then has transformed his ambitions, skills and principles into a successful personal training brand that is well known for its spectral approach towards all components of health, fitness and sports culture.
David’s training experience was born from the red sandy beaches of Torbay’s English Riviera where he spent his youth developing his passion for sports and competition on a national stage. His passion evolved and relocated to the University playing fields of South Wales where he graduated with a BSc (Hons) in Sport Science and founded a true connection for the ocean and its surf. His next conflicting step took him to the big city streets of London where he has rubbed shoulders with some of the biggest names in the Personal Training industry and where he continues his passion to help others achieve great things from his training experience.
The keystone to this unique and ever-innovative personal training brand stems not only from David’s vast training knowledge but from his creative nature and passion for media arts and branding. That simple acknowledgement became the inspiration for what would become a hugely successful concept: To create a Sports & fitness brand that blends both Devon Coastal lifestyle scenarios and urban London culture. The idea had been born to bring a unique yet immediately recognizable personal training experience to the people of London using social media channels to create and share content in a range of formats including text, photos, audio podcasts and film.
