MEET OUR TEAM

Farm

Growing up on a small farm in the west of Ireland had a profound impact on the way I view food and how I believe food should be developed for human consumption. Animals should be cared for over the course of their lives and land should be managed and nurtured so that it can sustain food production for centuries to come.

Fork

There is a direct link between the food on your fork and the capacity of your body and mind to perform. The food you bring into your home and the meals you prepare impact the quality of every daily task you do.

Performance

Nutrition is one of the key pillars of performance and without it you will not achieve your true potential. From working with elite and professional athletes in Ireland and participating in high level sport I have experienced the benefits nutrition has on elite performance.

Qualifications

Daniel received his BSc in Science from University College Dublin and holds an MSc in Nutrition, Physical Activity & Public Health from the University of Bristol. Daniel is also a Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist (C.S.C.S) with the NSCA, and has completed the national qualification in Exercise and Health Studies. Daniel recently completed the IOC Diploma In Sports Nutrition.

Sport

Daniel was a committed athlete himself and has played Gaelic football at intercounty level for Sligo and won an All-Ireland club football medal in 2016 with Ballyboden St’ Enda’s in Dublin. In later years Daniel has become a keen golfer. His aim is to get his handicap to single figures!!

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY

Paul Mannion

Quality nutrition has been my number one priority for a number of years now. Without it, I simply am not able to perform at my physical best regardless of the amount of training I do. Daniel has been a huge support to me since I joined the Dublin football team at 19, helping me through key stages of physical development with tailored nutrition guidance every step of the way

Winner of 4 all Ireland medals

Paul Flynn

I always looked for an edge when it came to my preparation for performance and nutrition became a core element of this later in my career. It was mainly due to the support, education and guidance from Daniel Davey. The key things he helped me with was managing my fuel intake around training, adding variety and spices to my meals and the importance of meal preparation in maintaining a healthy and balanced diet for performance.
Nutrition is more than just eating well. It is a lifestyle choice and a lot of it is down to good habit formation. Daniel also helped me form the habits I needed to perform at my peak.

Bernard Brogan

Daniel opened my eyes to the importance of nutrition to my performance. My diet and work with Daniel was integral to my return from long term injury, his passion for food and gaining an edge is infectious and driven us all to be better athletes.

Daniel not only gave me an insight of what was needed in terms of nutrition for performance but explained it simply and backed it up with incredible detail and science! By far the best performance nutritionist I’ve ever worked with over the past 14 years as a professional athlete

I can’t express my gratitude enough for Daniel Davey. He has taught me to put my health and nutrition first. I have so much more energy and I am more mindful of my food choices and portion sizes. Since January 2018 too December 2018 I have lost 22 kilos, 3 stone 4lbs. The food plan was tailored around me and the foods that I eat. I never looked at it as a diet, it was genuinely a lifestyle change. I highly recommend Daniel too anyone looking for a healthier lifestyle.

If you want to be the best, you have to work with the best. There is no doubt that Daniel is one of the best around. He is working with 2 of the most successful teams in Ireland. He practices what he preaches, has a wealth of knowledge and understands the demands of elite sport. He has helped me massively understand the importance of nutrition and recovery. He has changed my perspective on nutrition in terms of fueling up properly to be able to consistently perform at my best during a long competitive season

Cillian Reardon

While working with Daniel I consider the changes I’ve made in my nutrition as being a key margin of competitive advantage over those I’m competing against. Educating myself and establishing genuine performance nutrition habits has greatly improved my ability to maintain a busy life and still train with the intensity required to compete professionally. Quality nutrition habits are crucial for me to make weight and still be full of energy when I get in the ring.
