“I like the emphasis on strength and athleticism rather than exercising purely for aesthetic benefits. This is enhanced I think through the wide range of influences on the skills and exercises. The workout is challenging but works brilliantly in combination with the focus on education and technique.
I found the course really well structured. The layout meant that the goals of each exercise and teaching points are very clear and memorable. The same day I worked through half of the material I ended up teaching a 1:1 class and found myself drawing on things I had only just read. I think because of how the emphasis is placed on science when describing the exercises, it makes it much easier to understand and to explain to others where the benefits of each exercise lie. I will certainly keep coming back to this as a resource to top up whenever I feel I may need a reminder (particularly for things like the tempos for each exercise). Thanks!”
Methodology X Instructor, Jen Robinson
“When I first met Dan I was committed to teaching Methodology X classes – his whole philosophy that is also embraced throughout company is an important transition the fitness industry must and should go on – one of being more aware when we exercise: what we think, how we use and treat our bodies and being more in balance with mind and body.
The Methodology X workout is challenging and dynamic with so much thought clearly going into the design of the circuits and the Instructor Training. The Instructor Training It’s like Dan is sat beside you, walking you through it part by part. You learn, build confidence and have this huge desire to share with your class participants because there is so much authenticity as well as plain science facts behind the workout.
My Methodology X have a loyal following of Method X’ers that love the workout. One lady recently joined our class, a keen cyclist. After four weeks of classes she told me she had upgraded her bike because she was smashing her times and beating some of the fellow men in her group! Something she had never achieved. This is down to the design of Methodology X – it’s not a fluke.
I truly believe and based on 17 years of teaching classes and PT that this programme will change the way women exercise in the future. More love your body, more mindful movement, more education and empowerment, more women feeding their inner athlete. That’s what Dan has inspired me to do. Pay it forward!”
