David Norris Owner / Pro Footballer / Personal Trainer
Professional footballer and fully qualified level 3 personal trainer, David Norris is the owner and founder of Unique Fitness.
A professional footballer for the last 15 years, David has made nearly 500 appearances playing for 6 different clubs.
Davids first professional team was Bolton Wanderers joining them from non league Boston United in 2000 and playing a handful of cup games before moving to Plymouth Argyle for a £50,000 fee.
Five and a half years, 243 appearances and 280 games later, including winning promotion to the Championship in 2004 and winning Player of the Year in 2006, Ipswich Town paid £2million to take him from Plymouth in 2008 where he played over 100 games and was made captain in 2010 finishing top goalscorer that season.
David joined Portsmouth in 2011 for one season finishing top goalscorer before moving to Leeds in 2012 where injuries gave him an opportunity to complete his personal training qualifications. Most recently David played at Blackpool FC for the 2015-16 season and during that season opened up Unique Fitness.
With a big passion for fitness and 15 years experience in football opening Unique was an obvious progression for David and we now have an excellent facility helping people of all standards, ages and sizes to achieve their goals as well as working with professional footballers and teams.
Mark Parkinson Director/Head Coach
Hi there, I have been a qualified personal trainer and nutritionist since the year 2000. In 2014 I became a Master Trainer with the European Institute of Fitness at Lilleshall National Sports Centre in the UK. To add to this I am also a level 1 CrossFit Coach and a Motivation and Fitness Coach.
But enough about boring certificates. I like to train myself just like I like to train my clients; I like to build a body that can “do life” the best. This means being strong, it means becoming resistant to injury and illness and it means feeling and looking great too. I could give you over a hundred different reasons why you need to lift weights with me and they will cover reasons relating to mental health, physical health, social status, academic and entrepreneurial success and athletic success. These are all VERY good reasons to lift weights with me; but, really, I do it because it’s FUN, I look the best I can and I feel amazing. That motivates me more than any of the other benefits I get from my training. But luckily it also makes me the very best version of myself that there can be.
