Hello! I'm Dal,
I am a Wellness and Life Coach and TV, radio presenter. My business journey started in the Wellness industry in 1996, as a Personal Trainer, Dance Fitness Instructor and Fitness/ Sports Tutor.
In 2010 I launched my first exclusive Personal Training Studio & Gym. This established me as one of the first British Asian women to launch a gym in the UK.
My extensive career in the industry has established me as a highly respected lifestyle and wellness expert. My popular coaching programs and online products have helped people globally to get amazing results in all areas of their life.
In 2012 it became apparent to me that in order for me to grow my Wellness business and reach a global audience I had to become more internet and tech savvy. I had vast experience in sales from my previous roles in wellness and in the retail industry but very little in marketing and sales online.
I spent many late nights watching video tutorials, listening to podcasts, reading books and attending seminars with industry leaders, educating myself on all things business, digital media, marketing, PR, branding and more. This is when my interest in entrepreneurship grew.
I learnt fast and discovered I was good at all the ‘online stuff’ and this combined with my popularity and influence built on social media and respected reputation to deliver excellence, opened doors to opportunities and collaborations. I consult, speak, host and present at events and conventions within the wellness and business arena.
In 2013 my career and life shifted direction in an unexpected, but very positive way. I was very fortunate to be headhunted on social media by a TV producer. Thereafter, my media career and public speaking profile was established. I went on to produce and host my own TV and radio shows.
I have been mentored by some of UK’s most renowned media coaches; TV & radio producers (BBC & Sky), and great leaders within the wellness and business arena. These skills, I have acquired over the years, have enabled me to create my online TV shows, podcast and digital products.
Through my various media, press and speaking engagements I share solutions, strategies and the tools to help people with their health and wellness, mindset , relationships, business and more.
I’m passionate about exercise, keeping active, movement and dance. When I’m not busy working or studying I can be found at the gym, or at a dance or yoga class. Exercise and keeping active is a huge part of my life. I workout 6 days a week and very rarely miss a workout!
I really enjoy challenging myself and learning new things. I believe learning never stops and am currently studying a BSc (Hons) Psychology degree.
I’m a very creative soul and enjoy sketching, painting, crafts, cooking, reading and writing. I’m a huge lover of music, comedy, musicals, fashion, socialising, sport and the great outdoors. I also love spending time with my family; my amazing husband, my three beautiful grown up daughters and my dog Alfie.
I love connecting and networking with people, so feel free to follow me on social media.
