Welcome to my Website
I am Deryck Cozens, and I’m the founder and owner of Validus Fit Coach.
My interest in sport started over 30 years ago when I discovered a passion for many sports which I participated in recreationally.
I competed in rugby and basketball at high school and also at club level, I was also fortunate enough to play, coach and umpire badminton at university which gave me the opportunity to be part of the international stage.
I had a diverse attitude towards sport and wasn’t afraid to put my self to the challenge, I competed in martial arts at a national club level and managed to win several gold and silver medals for my club.
Even though i took my competitive sports seriously i enjoy taking part in other sports for the fitness and fun aspect through swimming and cycling, skiing abroad and indoor climbing also known as bouldering.
As I got older I discovered a new trend in sport taking up OCR’s (Obstacle Course Running) such as Tough Mudder.
Running events over the years have always been a big part of my sport and have raised a significant amount of money for significant charities that meant a lot to me such macmillan cancer, ms, pdsa and the most recent being for Dementia in the 2019 London Marathon, which was one of my greatest running achievements to date.
Being involved in many sports has driven me to have a high level of fitness and nutrition and I then decided to turn this into my professional career in my early 30's.
Once I qualified I was filled with a lot of enthusiasm and attained several roles within the professional fitness sector as a pt, studio instructor and health and fitness manager in the private and commercial gyms industry
Having gained 15 years experience in the industry I have continued to reinvest in my education to grow my knowledge and keep up with the everchanging trends and theories.
This for me is paramount to my development to keep me consistent and up-to-date so i can always deliver a firstclass product and service to my clients.
My main focus as an Elite Professional Coach is to mentor, guide and educate my clients and athletes.
I want them to realise their full potential by attaining the goals they aspire to.
And give them the mindset to commit to each challenge with confidence, drive, determination to reach their desired results.
My ethos is all about simple, sustainable and effective training to build a stronger better you!
