Health and fitness has always been a huge part of Dan’s life. At age 17 he began playing NRL at an elite level with the Sydney City Roosters, and went on to enjoy a stellar ten-year career with the Roosters, Gold Coast Titans and Canterbury Bulldogs. Unfortunately, in 2012 a neck injury forced Dan into early retirement. But his spirit and ambition could not be defeated as he refocused his energy towards helping people reach their full potential through training and nutrition.

Looking to expand his professional career and personal brand, Dan extended his reach via social media, various modelling projects, TV commercials and a stint on reality TV, both here and in the UK with MTV and appeared many times on The Footy Show and The Matty Johns Show.

Daniel has built up a list of qualities that have seen him become one of the top leaders in innovation in training and fitness. He, as a player, always pushed for perfection and the top honours. I can see clearly he has kept this and applied to his new found passion in the Health & Fitness world.

Trent Robinson – Roosters Head Coach

After many years of being unable to find the necessary motivation to exercise and lose weight I decided to sign up engage Daniel Conn (“Daniel”) as my personal trainer. I have to say that every moment I trained with Daniel was a pleasure and, incredibly, I actually looked forward to exercising.

Dave Simmons – Lost 40+Kg

He was always leading the way in the gym and giving everything on the paddock when we played together and i can see he's now got that hunger to teach others about what he believes so strongly, Functional training and healthy living.
