About me

David Swift Swiftpt personal training and nutrition programmes TeamGBI am David Swift, founder of SwiftPT. For 10 years I represented Great Britain in the Sport of Skeleton training alongside multiple medallists and Great Britain athletes from Summer and Winter Olympics. During this time I have acquired a great deal of knowledge, understanding and experience in the Health and Fitness industry whilst being on the receiving end of some pretty tough coaching! I worked closely with my coaches to improve my own programmes, leading me to being one of the top athletes in my field in the World. Whilst competing I have also acquired my degree in Sport and Exercise Science at Bath University along with my Personal Training qualifications from ‘The Training Room’. I am a nationally recognised Personal Trainer and UK:Athletics coach and hugely enthusiastic about what I do! I realise that Personal training is an expensive and daunting prospect for most people so here at SwiftPT I am looking to help you affordably reach your exercise and fitness goals, seamlessly fitting it in with whatever your life throws at you!

“David is a great guy and a truly dedicated athlete. I’d probably be speaking for many who know him when I say that David is someone who always puts a smile on your face. He is also a strong athlete who motivates himself and the team around him. Anyone who works with David would be a privileged individual!”


“I was David’s tutor when he trained as an athletic coach.  His background at a high level of athletics helped make him a great coach.  Since tutoring him I have followed his career as he switched from athletics to Skeleton.  His determination and dedication to his training is very commendable.  As a Personal Trainer this dedication and knowledge of all aspects of training and fitness can only be of benefit.”
