When David first entered Netflix’s new reality dating competition ‘Too Hot To Handle’, he wasn’t expecting the retreat to be so enlightening. The show became a turning point in this gentleman’s life. With ten hot singles from around the world locked away in a villa and a ‘sex-ban’ in place, the series definitely tested the player’s self-control and will power. David is one of the cast members who showed genuine and tremendous growth in the show. He not only tried to embrace the process but also learned about letting go and vulnerability.
Who is David Birtwistle?
The 28-year-old personal fitness trainer and nutrition coach, David Birtwistle, belongs to London. Having a background in petroleum engineering, this smart and sexy hunk was also a rugby player. David is an ambassador for Nike Training and also hosts Helios Fitness Retreats. He is also the owner of a performance coaching company and entertains clients from all over the world.
David is a fan-favorite whose character arc development shows massive potential on the show. Always a gentleman and a true friend, he keeps other’s needs before his. His relentless attempts to form a connection with Rhonda and Chloe earns our respect. But, the rejections and failure don’t keep him heartbroken for long.
Instead of sulking, he participates in the workshops with all his heart. Immersing himself into the process, he embraces the true nature of masculinity, the art of being vulnerable, letting go of the past, and getting over insecurities. A lot of times, these workshops make him emotional and leave him teary-eyed. But, he doesn’t give up.

For most people who sit at work, run at the weekends or attack a HIIT class multiple times a week, your hip flexors are more than likely going to get tight, which can lead to lower back pain. . When the iliopsoas (hip flexor) gets tight, it can pull the hips into a anterior tilted (forward tilt) position. . This can then put extra tension on the hamstrings and stop the glutes from fully activating. . This can make it hard to lift through full range and more importantly, increase the chances of lower back pain. . One of the best things you can do is stretch out the hip flexors by doing the couch stretch. . Put your foot on the sofa, knee on the floor and slowly push your butt back to your foot. . The pro tip here is to focus on creating a posterior tilt (backwards tilt) of the hips to increase the stretch . If you’re really tight, this is going to be hard. So another option is to take the sofa away and let the foot rest on the floor instead. . Hold for 30-90 seconds with small oscillations back and forward. . #actionsreflectpriorities . #fitness #stretching #mobility #movement
