After natural talent and appropriate training, an adequate diet is known to be the next most important element for enhancing the training and performance of sports people. My approach is to educate athletes firstly on healthy eating principles, and secondly on performance nutrition. This approach reflects my belief that a lifestyle approach to healthy eating is likely to be as, or perhaps more important as the food eaten around performance, as lifestyle habits affect sleep, mood, stress and many other facets that can influence performance. Optimising body composition from the point of view of muscle mass and reduced fat mass is also a fundamental focus of my approach.
WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
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

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.

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.
