Personal training used to be something that ‘other people’ did. With other people being celebrities and the wealthy. The fitness industry has changed a lot over the 20 plus years I’ve been in it, but one of my favourite ways in which it has changed is that now personal training is something everyone can afford. I’m passionate about helping clients achieve their fitness goals, and personal training is the most effective way to get great results.
Who is personal training suitable for? PT is for anyone interested in improving their health and wellbeing and getting results.
Programs are highly individualised and can be written for a general or a specific goal – such as improving cardiovascular health, to increase muscle mass, to lose that last 10 pounds before a special occasion, or to complete the West Highland Way.
Whatever your goal is we will work with you to design a program around the fitness and nutritional requirements needed to achieve your goal.
My particular areas of expertise are weight loss, muscle mass gain, and rehabilitation.
I’ve worked with many clients to achieve many different goals. These goals include:
- clients looking to lose a significant amount of weight
- people wanting to shed the last few pounds
- guys aiming to fill out the arms of their t-shirt for the holidays
- those who are anxious about starting exercise after a long lay off
- clients coming back from injury
I’ve been in this industry for a long time now, and have seen all the fads come and go. I’ve trained all over the world with industry leaders and have qualifications in various disciplines.
Qualifications aside, I’ve worked with lots of clients – and that’s where I’ve really gained knowledge. This wealth of experience with clients across different age ranges and fitness levels, training for many different types of goals, has let me see what does and doesn’t work.
This helps me design programs that are tailored exactly to your abilities, goals, schedule etc. The best designed program in the world won’t work if you don’t do it. My aim is to work with you to write a program that works with your lifestyle to deliver your goals, then support you to do the program. My main aim is to get results, and to do that I need your commitment to the process.
Simplicity + consistency = results
Sessions take place in a private personal training studio, either 1-to-1 or 2-to-1. This bright and relaxed space has all the equipment needed to provide a challenging workout, with large mirrors to help you learn proper technique.
I regard personal training as an education, not an excuse to ‘beast’ you as some trainers do. What I love most about working individually with clients is coaching them in how to use equipment, to perform correct technique watching them gain confidence and fostering a lifelong respect for their fitness and health. It’s great to hear a client excited about our next session.
There are a number of ways I work with clients, depending on skill level, confidence and client goals. I would love to discuss how I could best serve your individual needs.
