"91.8kg this morning 👍 Delighted, it's so motivating when you see the scales going down instead of up! Where have you been all my life!! Seriously, I wish someone could have told me how to do this years ago...you make it simple to understand, so thanks 🙋"
"I've just completed the 3 Levels to Lean programme with Daniel and to say I'm happy with the result is an understatement. I'm so pleased with my weight loss and the strength and toning I've achieved in my body also. I'm generally a fit person who worked out a lot but the scales never really moved. With Daniel's expertise, I've been given a whole new education on nutrition and how to feed my body. The plan doesn't feel like you're on a diet, in fact quite the opposite! It's about filling up on all the "good" foods. In the last 18 weeks, I've lost weight and my skin, hair and nails look healthier and I've loads of energy! Daniel is constantly encouraging you and motivating you to get to where you want to be. He's always a phone call, message or email away. His exercise and nutritional advice is fantastic and the online workouts are very enjoyable and can be fitted in to suit you. I can honestly say that Daniel has given me the tools to continue with this healthy eating plan and it's something that my entire family have been happy to take on also. It's not a diet, it's a lifestyle choice. Thank you Daniel!"
"I started on the plan with Daniel in jun and I cant speak highly enough of him he has a great way of making you believe in yourself and the plan he made for me was easy to follow with lots of foods to choose from I maybe finished with Daniel but he has giving me all the tools and knowledge to continue with my weight loss journey thanks so much Daniel"
"So, I just finished the 10 Day Challenge with Daniel and I am thrilled. I lost 14lbs in ten days! The plan was easy to follow and there was always great support from daniel. He is absolutely fantastic at what he does and through his food plans and workouts, reeducates you in food, nutrition and exercise. He never overwhelms you with too much information in one go and is so motivating and supportive. In ten days, I went from feeling crappy, lethargic and bloated to feeling much happier in myself, less bloated and having bundles of energy. I would highly recommend Daniel to everybody. He is a legend and if it's results your after, he's your man. I know for me, he has put me on the right path after this 10 day challenge that I am so motivated to continue on my journey, i feel i could do anything. Thanks so much Daniel. ☺"

"I have tried lots of different diet approaches before but none were as enjoyable and worked as well as this.I did the 3 Levels to Lean Challenge and lost 14lbs in 10 days!! I couldn't believe it. I enjoyed the nutrition information and it didn't feel like I was on a diet at all. Not only did I loose a stone but my energy has improved greatly. I loved the exercises, they were challenging but all levels were shown so they were very doable.
I absolutely love the support and motivation that Daniel provides and working with him was the best decision I ever made!!!! :-)"
"I just completed an 8 wk programme with Daniel and the results are amazing for me.. I had 3 sections and found it so hard to tone up the belly, I'm a very fit person and could not get rid of the flab!! But with the help and nutrition from Daniel I achieved it and will keep it going!! The workout are excellent and love them, the kids joined in aswell. I highly recommended elate for amazing results, thanks so much for all your help and know how, couldn't have done it with u.."
"Daniel, I just want to thank you for all your help and encouragement in the last few months...as a person who doesn't mind doing exercise and I thought I was eating healthy most of the time.....it was a bit of a wake up call...I cant believe I'm down 2 stone, which is down mostly to what I eat, without feeling hungry and I admit very little exercise...thanks again for all your encouragement ..

"I have tried numerous diets, "quick fixes" and fads over the last 15 years and have failed miserably at each and every one of them!
So as you can imagine I am amazed at my progress on Daniels program. Not only have I lost weight - 22lbs in seven weeks but also I have buckets of energy (no more 3 o' clock slump!), my skin is so much better, my mood is upbeat and I'm not hungry all the time!! - this has never happened on other diets I've been on! So loving the program Daniel, looking forward to continuing on and reaching my target!"
"Just finished my 10 day challenge with Daniel thrilled with the result lost 9lbs in 10 days great program and excellent support. Eileen"
"From my first conversation with Daniel I felt motivated to lose weight. I have tried many different weight loss programmes in the past which worked for a little while but then my own habits filtered in and I was back to the same bad ways.
I am great to exercise but I still wasn't losing anything. Daniel went through my diet which I thought was a very health diet as I had change many things in my diet but I was still at a standstill and couldn't figure it out. Daniel went through food choices with me and by following Daniels programme I have lost weight and made changes that are realistic and a new way of life for me.
Daniel's fitness videos were excellent and easy to follow - you feel great once completed.
Daniel followed me every step of the way with motivating e mails, messages and phone calls - there was no hiding BUT it worked. I found the whole experience fantastic and am delighted with the result - its great when friends and family complement you on weight loss.
Thank you Daniel for all your help and support, Helena"

"I have learnt so much from Daniel since I started personal training with him back in November. He has thought me loads about food & nutrition and I never thought I would actually like doing the personal training side of things, but I love it! Lost 3.5 stone to date and definitely couldn't have done it without him!! I couldn't recommend Daniel enough."
"Had my first session today! Never done anything like this before so am looking forward to the changes along the way. Daniel makes you feel at ease straight away. Glad I took the plunge."
Siobhan Daly (A week later)
"Lost 4 lbs my first week down. Am enjoying having no major tiredness slumps in particular. Workouts are fantastic and im feeling proud of myself for taking the leap. Enjoying the big and sometimes daunting task of changing my attitudes to food!"
Siobhan Daly (12 weeks later!)
"So I have just completed the 12 week body transformation programme with Daniel. So when I committed to the plan, I was nervous but mentally ready for the change both in diet and exercise. You have to commit mentally and be ready for the change or you'll only kid yourself. You couldn't ask for a nicer instructor than Daniel. Always felt I could ask him anything and I did! The weights, I have to say, I really enjoyed and will continue on with them. I find running is not for me so the weights are my new fitness love. So the food changes took a few weeks to get uses to but I'm better informed about what I eat than I ever was. So I lost 2 stone and dropped to a size 14! I'm delighted with the results and Daniel thanks for being a wonderful coach! ☺"
Siobhan Daly (6 months later in a Facebook post to a new client)
"Welcome on board. I still smile when I try on clothes 3 dress sizes smaller now! Can't believe how far I've come! So glad I found Daniel to kick start my fitness and food nutrition awareness. Good luck!"
"I came across Elate in FB by chance. It was well timed. I was not officially overweight, sitting nicely within the “healthy” range, however I was too heavy for ME, and I was carrying it all on my stomach. I wasn’t happy with how my clothes sat, how I looked, or how I felt. I exercise regularly and ate my fruit and veg. I had what I thought was a healthy diet and life style, but I was going around in circles and was beginning to think it was just age and the “middle aged spread”.
Sound familiar? Well.....in came Daniel!
We re-evaluated my diet...while each item I was eating was healthy, cumulatively I was eating too much fruit and too many carbs...and tbh probably too large portions of everything. So I followed the programme, cut back on the carbs completely, made good substitutions and NEVER felt hungry. Dark chocolate saved me big time in terms of my sweet tooth!!! Six weeks later I am 13lb lighter but more importantly I dropped a jean size, the belly fat has reduced significantly, and I feel better about myself. During that time I had a wedding anniversary, a 50th Birthday (or long weekend!!) and a weekend away and I didn’t feel I compromised any enjoyment. Being accountable and having Daniel in the background constantly kept my focus. I never felt I was on a diet...no counting points...just good meal choices.
To anyone out there thinking of doing this, don’t put it off, don’t wait til after that anniversary, that birthday....today is the day!! I’ll be continuing with the programme myself; it works! It was the best 50th present I gave myself. You CAN be fab at 50!!
Thank you Daniel!"
"I started five weeks ago with Daniel in elate .
Being honest I was skeptical that I could loose weight quickly ,as over the years I had literally tried every fad diet going.
I could open my own book shop at this stage with self help diet books.
None of these had actually helped me to loose weight and keep it off.
I'm now finished my fifth week under Daniels guidance, I've lost a stone a dress size and have never had more energy.
I'm looking forward to seeing what's coming for the next weeks in terms of results and I love the exercise programme as I can do them at a time that suits me and work around my busy schedule.
If your in doubt ,trust me go for it you will be delighted with the results like I am."
"My friend invited me to take a free 10 day fitness and weight loss challenge with Elate. Thanks to Daniel Meany and his gentle, common sense approach to nutrition and exercise, I lost over 5 lbs in 10 days and am continuing to lose weight in a healthy way. I have dieted and jumped in to exercise regimes that I've found hard to maintain but Daniel's attitude, advice and experience have helped me gain a better attitude to food and exercise. His easy to follow eating guide lines and well structured exercise plans are something I'll be using in the months to come."

"Can't recommend Elate enough nearly have my first stone lost after I had my free transformation session just about a month ago .. Really happy, feel great..."
Kate O' Grady
"Yesterday was the final day of my 12 week course with Daniel and I am chuffed to bits that I lost 21lbs!!!
This is by far the best weight loss program I have ever tried, between the app, the support here on Facebook and Daniel's practical and completely 'do-able' advice and suggestions.
It is a testament to the quality of this program that I was able to lose so much while suffering from digestive health problems. Daniel's solid background and education in nutrition and fitness made all the difference in my progress.
I will certainly be signing on again in the near future to help get me closer to my target weight."
"I've just completed my 12 week programme. I'm delighted to say I've lost 20lb and I hope to continue to lose more.
I always found Daniel so helpful and encouraging. I could text or message any time with what I thought were silly questions but he never made it seem that way.
I have loads of people commencing on my weight loss and I'm LOVING it.
Thanks Daniel for everything."
"I loved being transformed I am so happy now with what I look like and what you are capable of doing once you make that commitment you can do it and Daniel is an amazing trainer and with with 100% of the way he has made such a difference to the way I think about my life good luck and persevere xx"
"Thank you soo much :-) You are doing an amazing job. Your exercise programs are great, working on every inch of my body and your nutrition knowledge is amazing. I can recommend your service to everyone :-)"

"I've just completed a 10 day body transformation programme with Daniel and not only have I lost weight but I've re-educated my palate and learnt to enjoy exercise again! Daniel was so motivational and helpful and I would recommend him to anyone..Thank you Daniel :-)"
"Thank you soo much Daniel for including me in the 10 day challenge. What an amazing ten days, I've learned so much from your expertise and encouragement. I'm looking forward to continuing my lifestyle change. Would definitely encourage anyone to avail of this amazing offer. We had an amazing group of ladies who were supportive and encouraging. Well done again to all x"
"A really good experience. I've learned to listen to my body but also with the HIIT workouts I now have more time to myself. Daniel was great for recommendations with different foods and concepts to help me along the way. It was certainly a challenge but I'm down 1 stone in 12 weeks. Highly recommended."
"Daniel is excellent at what he does. I feel more educated after the last few weeks. This is a lifestyle change for me and one I now feel more confident in continuing into the future with. He is very motivating and will see you through to the end of your goals. Every little helps"
Elizabeth O Brien
"I did the eight week programme with Daniel and achieved fantastic results. It's a tough programme as it completely changed the way I ate and what I ate but was well worth the time and effort. The exercise was perfect as I could do it at home and fit it easily into a busy work/home schedule. I have tried different things over the years and would always be reasonably fit but this was the first time I achieved such great results. Thanks again Daniel"
"I have just complete the 10 day challenge with Daniel and I am absolutely made up with the results. Not only did I achieve my short term goal of toning up but it also gave me an awareness of foods and what they can do to your body. Although my my aim was to tone up, I really wasn't focusing on the weight loss I lost 7lbs in total which was fantastic! I won't lie I did struggle a couple of days with some bad side effects but I came to learn that this was the withdrawal from sugar that was causing these symptoms and only have myself to blame for my constant dependence on sugar. It's only 6 weeks until my holiday and I am really looking forward to working with Daniel to maintain this brilliant feeling and work even harder for that bikini body. A massive shout out to all the people in the Facebook chat as well, without their comments of advice and support and all Daniels hard work I couldn't have achieved what I did! I would highly recommend Elate to anyone in fact a few of my friends are starting the next 10 day challenge! Thanks Daniel x"
"Well today was t 10th day if transformation and to say I'm delighted is an understatement just goes to show if you put in the work. 6.5lbs gone for good due to healthy eating and some workouts a big thanks to Daniel Meany for allowing me in on the group here's to the next few weeks 💪💪💪"
E L A T E Bootcamp:
Robert Donegan - "I signed up for four weeks of Elate Bootcamp early summer 2014 wondering if I could manage to keep up as my fitness levels were quite low. At 62 years old with some recent health issues I felt I had to start somewhere. Lisa and Daniel were brilliant with a diverse range of ages and fitness levels in the group. They help and encouraging each individual progress at a pace that is doable yet personally stretching ourselves while enjoying the camaraderie and support of the group. Two months later the improvements are obvious to both me and my GP. My lung capacity, ease of breathing, stamina and mobility have all increased substantially and my cholesterol levels are lower too. Thanks a million to Daniel and Lisa I'm fitter and healthier and learned a lot about nutrition. I'm definitely continuing with Elate I'd highly recommend it."
