Dan Reader the rebound guy. He spent 10 years in the fitness industry helping people fall in love with their bodies now his mission is helping people fall in love with themselves so they can create the relationships they truly desire.
Dan very recently left the fitness industry he was in for 10 years. He was a personal trainer and predominantly helped women fall back in love with their bodies, and it was predominantly around weight loss. He realised that it was skipping a very important piece of the puzzle, and since then his mission is to give people the tools fall back in love with themselves, and it’s not just about the need to their improve their body, or anything external -rather, to really embody self-love.
Growing up as a Jehovah’s Witness for the first 12 years of my life what I would consider heaven and hell all wrapped up in one and as I went through my teenage years and early adult life I had held on to the belief that people are either good or bad and because of this belief I was on a mission to ‘prove’ to people that I was ‘good’ I shamed myself for my sexuality, and everything that comes with that and held on to the ‘sex should be vanilla’ and anything outside of that could not be integrated into a loving relationship.
For a young man struggling with self-confidence and trying to fit into societal norms of partying I felt more and more disconnected from my true self which resulted in me leading 2 separate lives. The loving kind caring Dan who was in a happy relationship with his girlfriend and the ‘seedy’ Dan who was exploring his sexuality through porn and cheating.
After that relationship broke down because of the cheating and hurt I’d caused I realised something needed to change. 4 years ago while building my personal training studio I entered a new relationship where I thought everything was amazing 8 months later that relationship broke down and as a result of the pain and heartache left me at rock bottom. I fell back into partying and trying to escape my emotions which led me to get into £7k worth of debt and having to move out of my house and move into my studio.
This is where the real work began! I realised my life was the result of me not loving myself and trying to hide parts of myself that I thought were unlovable and now I have an amazing opportunity to fall in love with all of me. Over the course of 2 years, a lot of pain and slip-ups I began healing and putting myself back together, in fact, I began really liking the person I was becoming and new that I had to share my story and help people going through similar. I am now in a healthy loving relationship that enables me to open up and support each other to be the best versions of ourselves and I would not have been here now if it wasn’t for being at rock bottom. I want to help people turn their pain and heartache into the greatest gift they have received that will enable them to really create the life and relationships they truly desire.
