"RE-INVENT yourself


Learn to just do the healthy option, rather than relying on feeling motivated"

Dale Cronin
Exercise Scientist
High Performance Coach & Behavior Change Specialist

Exercise Scientist Dale Cronin has delivered over 40,000 PT sessions in his 18 years of operation and now delivers High Performance Personal Training & Behavior Change Coaching. In this time of working with different people from all walks of life, Dale has learnt a great deal about about human behavior, motivation, the best processes to ensure exercise adherence and the most effective way to influence his clients to make a sustainned positive change in their lives. 

This includes individually tailored life transformation training, which is highly effective in bringing about lasting, significant and positive change in your life. 

High performance personal training/life coaching is not just about physical fitness, it addresses all aspects of a persons life and focuses on strategies to move towards the more positive choices. 


High Performance PT is focused on defining agreed performance goals, understanding the factors which impact on performance, implementing strategies which address performance gaps, and maintaining motivation to achieve goals.

High Performance PT & Life Coaching concentrates on structure as a key ingredient to long term success. 

A strict structure is set wherebye sessions are broken down into 28 day training cycles consisting of 4 x 7 day training blocks 

An emphasis is heavilly placed on clever goal setting strategies, where the goal setting approach focuses more around the behavior process rather than the result. This is done on a weekly basis.
