I’m Dani Mendoza, a certified personal trainer specialising in strength, mobility and calisthenics skills.
I grew up playing all kinds of sport but after graduating university and getting a full time job, I stopped playing sport. I knew movement was important for my health so I started incorporating the gym into my daily routine. I didn't know what I was doing but I tried everything and was drawn to skill based training and bodyweight and strength training.
Before I knew it, training was a highlight of my day - the purpose of exercise stopped becoming a way to “burn calories”. It was a way I could improve my abilities and challenge myself. I gained confidence that I had never had before. Not because I was growing cool muscles, but because I was achieving things my body had never done before. I felt badass walking into a room knowing I could rep out pull ups, deadlift double my bodyweight, sprint fast and do a handstand.
I became a trainer because I want you to feel like a badass too.
My training philosophy, “Developed Movement, Developed Mindset”, was born from my own training experience. It’s reflective of my goal for those who train with me: to build your confidence and feel empowered by improving your strength and capabilities.
