Hi, I'm Dean
I want to help you eat better, get fitter and be the fit Dad & best role model you can be...
If you're a dad who wants to feel healthier, fitter and stronger to be more active with your kids, proud of your own body and set better examples to your family.
If you've already tried to achieve these goals in the past, and feel that your limited time to exercise or prepare healthier foods, or lack of access to gym equipment is stopping you achieving great results for your body...
Being a dad of 2 myself, I know that family life can take over a lot of your spare time.
I also have a military background. I served in the Army from the age of 16, for 11 years, so also know what it's like to travel a lot for work. A lot of the men I coach travel for work, too. Some off-shore, others around the UK, and some run their own businesses.
Having such a busy work and family life brings a lot of challenges.
I'm Dean McMenamin
ARMY VETERAN, FATHER TO 2 CHILDREN, 2 DOGS, LOVER OF ICE-CREAM AND BODY TRANSFORMATION COACH FOR DADS.
From the energy demands to the often unpredictability of schedule and free time to work on your goals, to often not having access or time to prepare healthier foods and a gym.
I know how hard it can be to prioritise your health when you're low on energy and time.
And I'm here to help you eat better without dieting, counting calories or strict food rules, and make the right exercise second nature (whether in a fully equipped gym or with minimal equipment at home or on the road) so you can keep up with the dad-life and look awesome at the swimming pool with the kids.
Despite being physically active most of my life, my diet and lifestyle choices were pretty shocking up until my late 20's. I've been skinny-fat, self conscious and depressed. I've gone through my own transformation of habits and lifestyle. I know it's not easy and know how to help you overcome the challenges ahead of you.
Being healthier, having more energy to deal with stress and more body confidence has made me a better dad, partner and role model. Everyone benefits, and I want you to be that same leader for your family.
I want to make the process of change and achieving your goals simple and uncomplicated. No crazy dieting, strict food rules or unsustainable exercise plans. I want eating better and fitness to enhance life for both you and your family. Not make it harder.
I've coached and helped hundreds of dads over 30, 40, even 50 years old gain more energy, feel fantastic and get in the best physical shape of their lives.
Whether you're eating meals from home every day or work away and eat on the go, I can help you eat better and achieve your goal whatever your situation.
I've been known to help men lose weight, get fit, strong and look epic whilst only training in their hotel rooms or at home with their own body weight and a few resistance bands.
So whether you have access to full gym equipment or want to train at home with minimal kit - I know how to help you achieve jaw-dropping results.
I don't expect you to be perfect or follow a plan 100%. That's unrealistic for anyone. All that matters to me is you give your best, and no matter how often you slip up, you dust yourself off and get straight back to it. This isn't about the plan, it's about you, making improvements and learning to be consistent for life.
One day I stepped out the shower, caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror and just thought wow, look at that. You can really see the changes.
Dad of 2, Train Engineer From Paisley
I had 3 months until my honeymoon to Jamaica but didn't feel good about going. Dean helped me make really simple and achievable improvements with my eating and training each week. I went on my honeymoon feeling awesome. It was the first time I've felt really good about having my shirt off on the beach.

I had a stroke at 50 years old and 16 1/2 stone. I had to change my life before I didn't have a life anymore. Dean helped me make the nutritional changes and it all became second nature to me. I've lost so much weight, my energy is through the roof, I'm flying in work every day, I'm working out, eating better, sleeping better, life's just so much better.
Dad of 2, Roof Layer from Glasgow
Before I started I was feeling pretty crap about myself. Noticed pictures with my top off a few months before and could see I had put on a bit of weight. Always thought a would stay thin but it doesn't work that way never exercising and eating rubbish all the time and it was catching up on me. My body was looking out of shape. So I was thinking I would give the gym thing another go then I came across Deans programme on Facebook so I applied to join. Dean helped me with the nutrition side because it's something that I knew nothing about. it wasn't long before I had more energy than ever and as the weeks started to go by I saw the change in my body as well. My belly disappeared I could see muscles in places I never noticed before. Was seeing the body getting toned up good. Can only thank Dean for helping me get to where I am now. Cheers bro

I was working out on my own for a year or 2 without seeing any results. I've been training with Dean for 10 weeks now and the transformation I've gone through is amazing. My strength levels have doubled, I'm leaner, more muscular and feel amazing. It's been challenging but easy to get through with the support and encouragement from Dean and the other lads in the team. He helped me overhaul my diet now I'm healthier and even sleeping better. Basically everything has improved and I couldn't be prouder of myself. Thanks a million Dean you have actually changed my life.
