6 weeks ago I put a skills swap ad up to give a certified driving instructor the opportunity to exchange 10 driving lessons for 10 personal training sessions. I was glad that Nick from Nicholas Driving Academy took up the offer to exchange services. Nicholas Driving Academy has been based in East Dulwich since 1981, I was sure I would be in the right hands. Nick has a calm, laid back personality which has worked perfectly for me as I have not had lessons for almost 4 years. I have been growing in confidence as the lessons go by, with Nick pitching the sessions just right. He is a very knowledgeable and experienced instructor.
Nick's personal training sessions with me have been going really well. Nick has a football background having played a good level 11 years ago. He plays badminton on the weekends. I have been working with Nick on acquiring the right nutrition to suit his work & lifestyle to enable him to attain his health & fitness goals. We have been working on Nick's cardiovascular fitness, his agility and flexibility in particular to enable him to compete effectively at badminton. Nick has had back problems and so we have looked at correcting postural issues that have been enhancing the problem.
This experience has been a great learning point for me, having to almost begin driving from scratch, needing Nick to guide me step by step and exhibit the patience I need to excel. I am used to being on the other side having to exercise patience and care, especially for those having to make a complete lifestyle change from being inactive with poor nutrition, to being active and making the right nutritional choices.
I would most definitely recommend Nick to anyone looking to start driving lessons or looking for an instructor for a friend/family member. You can contact Nick on the details below:
