My son is on the autistic spectrum, he was bullied in secondary school, he was left feeling very low he had lost trust in both adults and his peers. His self esteem was low, he lacked confidence, had no direction in life and at one point he was thinking about ending it all. Academically we were struggling also. Three years ago he started college and we were introduced to IPROVEFIT!!!
Jerel and Danny have been a God send for us. Through their dedication, commitment, understanding and hard work they turned things around. They have been fantastic mentors supporting and ensuring all fears and struggles are overcome in all areas of his well-being, health and education.
The results are beyond expectation, we now have a very positive, confident, motivated young man who has achieved academically and knows what he wants out of life.
I am continually impressed with the result and would highly recommend Jerel and Danny to anyone.
Dedicated professionals who enthuse and practice their beliefs and instill their dedication into all whom train with them.

Kim Peniston – Transition Support Worker, Swindon College
Danny is motivated and dedicated in supporting young people to reach their full potential. The work he carries out gives vulnerable young people a self-esteem boost, in a way they may not have experienced before. By focusing on working with the body the young person can develop their own individualised goals which Danny can support them with alongside addressing their social and emotional needs. Young people respond in an exceptionally positive way to Danny as a successful, consistent male role model. Having seen the transformative work Danny and his team do I would highly recommend Iprovefit to work with young people on both a mentoring basis and with groups.
Kate Macdonald – Student Experience Manager, Swindon College.
I run a course aimed at NEET 16-18 year old young people. Some of the learners have a history of struggling with Education. Some have behavioural problems. Some are anxious. Some are over confident. Some lack motivation. Some are all of the above. Some are none of the above. All respond positively to Danny and Jerel.
Danny and Jerel are able to both connect with and motivate my students. They challenge inappropriate behaviour whilst maintaining a positive learning experience. Outside of delivering classes Danny and Jerel continue to exert a positive influence. On many an occasion I have included Danny or Jerel in a meeting with a young person because of the impact they have. Students are encouraged, pushed and inspired because of all Danny and Jerel bring.

No idea where to start from ermm I’ve had a lot of support through my life but Danny and Jerel are the only ones that can relate to and understand the situations that I get myself into, before Iprovefit I lacked motivation to do anything I didn’t really care about my future or see where I was doing things wrong they guided me not my telling me to stop but showing me there’s more to life Than taking drugs partying and doing nothing, since I’ve been with them I’ve stopped taking drugs I’ve learnt how to budget my money Learnt how to keep a clean house, take care of my nutrition seeing them everyday keeps me active and gives me something to look forward to they’ve helped so much.
