Dave has been a life-long fitness student, though during his years ageing, and to put it mildly “he spread out a little“. Too bodily conscious to attend a gym, around mid 2014 Dave began resistance training from home.
From August to December 2016, combined with an intensive home fitness program, Dave lost a total of 19.5KG. Since then he has managed to maintain both his new weight and physique. Yet having been a purchaser of several inferior fitness items, David began to search for a solution. A long story cut short, during 2019, Dave and a small team from Pronimen set about designing, sourcing and manufacturing fitness products themselves.
I am married to and have 2 lovely boys – I met, married, and birthed our children in the UK.
In the early years my career path was with manufacturing specialist cables for B.T. and at the turn of the new millenium a work opportunity arose to relocate to Shanghai China (we still look back in amazement at that). Nevertheless from around early 2000’s my role was C.O.O manufacturing underground network cables commonly known as broadband fibre, though as a qualified adv.psy.hons.dip it wasn’t too long before a second role appeared – emotionally, mentally, and spiritually assisting expats.
My Journey Back to Fitness
As a lifelong “keep fitter“, I’d always frequented a gym until that is, an illness fell upon me. During a 10/11 year down period, as one can see from the photos, both comfort and weight caught up with me.
Getting back to fitness began with home training in 2014, yet it wasn’t until the autumn of 2016 that things really improved.
From August 2016 to December 2016, adopting a Ketogenic Diet my weight dropped 19.5KG (or 3 stone) – From 84KG to 64.5KG or (from 13.2 stone to 10 stone).
Why Fitness Products?
After returning to the UK – It meant adapting to life.
Aside from the challenging space seen in the picture slide show and no gym – My motivation grew from the tiredness of buying things that did not resemble it’s advertised pictures, goods that were inferior quality, and items that didn’t turn up at all.
Initially the challenge was to make products for smaller spaces that worked “after a few months“, and to make equipment that did not break or damage the furniture. This extended to items that were strong but lightweight and could easily packed away, which further extended to items that could go “travelling”.
