A New Standard of Personal Training Edinburgh

go down

Personal Trainer Edinburgh Private Personal Training & Customised Nutrition

With a complete lack of regulation for personal trainers in Edinburgh, there has been a progressive decline in the standard of training services.  As each person invariably searches for the best personal trainer in Edinburgh, it is important to first identify the standard within which all trainers should be delivering.

Our purpose is to use our industry specific education, skill sets, and experience to create a new, professional standard of coaching.  We achieve this standard by applying a client-centred approach that respects individual differences and uses structure, accountability, and monitoring to achieve measurable results.  

Our approach combines structured exercise and nutrition, as well as integrated systems for motivation and adherence, while focusing on meeting your objectives by identifying your specific needs for goal attainment.

Your Safety Post Covid-19 Becomes Our Professional Responsibility

Your safety immediately becomes our priority. Our fully private gym allows us to minimise any potential risk from other individuals, while specific measures that include proper sanitisation protocols are implemented consistently to ensure your safety each session. Also, as part of our professional standards, each member of our professional team undergoes health hygiene and sanitisation training specific to our working environment.

Sanitisation stations are positioned throughout our facility to allow for quick and easy access for yourself. Prior to your session, your personal trainer will have already sanitised all equipment for use, including any anticipated contact surfaces. With your safety secured, you can focus on enjoying your sessions, learning, and achieving real and lasting results.

A Comprehensive Approach Personal Training & Customised Nutrition

Personalising your workouts

Designing effective exercise plan is both a science and an art. The science comes from applying exercise research and evidence-based principles to facilitate the desired goal, while the art comes from designing workouts that offer variety, enjoyment and reflect your preferences and needs. Our personal training combines both elements to create gym programs both personalised to reach your objectives as well as varied and enjoyable.

To ensure progression within your exercise, we record your gym work every session to allow for measurable and accelerated progress. Your records form an ongoing exercise journal that provide objective evidence of your weekly progress. Importantly, we will coach you on proper exercise technique, helping you to learn more about how to exercise safety and efficiently.

Customising your nutrition

We take a flexible and lifestyle approach to nutrition. Your nutrition plans are structured to reflect the foods you enjoy, give you flexibility to choose your meals, and importantly, accommodate meals out, travelling and unpredictable events. Our team perform specific nutritional calculations and assess your eating habits and patterns, digestive health and food preferences to structure a plan customised to you and your objectives.

To help build consistency into your nutrition we use accountability systems to improve your adherence.  Your personal trainer will keep you on track with your nutrition and, as challenges arise, work with you to create mutually agreed upon contingency plans for overcoming them.  Similar to your exercise, we will teach you about your nutrition and important underlying principles.

Nutrition by Design

Your nutrition is made easier and more effective through professionally designed plans.
These plans are designed for structure, specificity, and most importantly, practicality.
Your personal trainer shapes your nutrition to your goals and your body composition to
create more specificity in your meal planning.  Also, structure eliminates the guess work
in your meals, making food selection much easier.


Our job as personal trainers is never to impose our own objectives on you, but rather listen to what you wish to achieve and translate your goals into a comprehensive plan for achievement. We understand the importance of developing individual strategies for successful goal attainment and an integral component of our work involves creating effective and sustainable behaviours to ensure you achieve and keep your results long-term.

As you reserve the right to select who you train with, we similarly maintain the right to select our clients. We specifically look to work with individuals strongly committed to their goals and demonstrate this commitment through consistency in our work. In return we use our professional abilities, knowledge and experience to provide the important instruction, guidance and essential motivation to achieve your results.


Your Weight Loss Journey Proven Strategies For Success

Weight loss is the most commonly held objective among clients we work with. Our approach to weight loss combines both structured nutrition and planned exercise.  Your personal trainer will complete nutritional calculations to set parameters on calorie intake as well as targets for specific nutrients.  Similarly, your exercise plan will be organised to reflect your targeted areas and shaped according to your fitness experience and feedback.

We know that achieving successful weight loss relies heavily on adherence and consistency. Therefore, our personal training uses accountability systems for nutrition to ensure you stay on track and responsible in following your plan. As challenges to losing weight enviably do arise, we take a individualised approach to identifying challenges unique to you and incorporating contingency plans to meet and overcome potential barriers.

Behaviour change is by far the most important element within goal attainment and simply refers to the actions or strategies you employ to achieve your objectives. When pursuing health and fitness goals, people tend to focus heavily on the outcome.  For example, reaching a desired body weight or improving fitness or strength levels. However, your health goals are a reflection of the specific behaviours you select and achieving your objectives are ultimately dependent on your level of adherence and consistency within each behaviour.

Given this, we shift focus to your process not your outcome.  This requires building with you sustainable behaviours that not only meet your desired objectives, but preserve them long term.  By remaining process focused, your attention is appropriately directed to your behaviours and building consistency within each.

Driving Forces Behind Goal Attainment MOTIVATION & MINDSET


Motivation is unquestionably one of the most powerful driving forces behind goal setting and attainment. It reflects your desire to engage in your behaviours and importantly your drive to sustain these behaviours as part of your lifestyle. As motivation is influenced by a number of factors, our team focus on areas known to facilitate motivation within health and fitness, including specific goal setting, self-efficacy, education, and timely support and encouragement.

Importantly, we know that your long-term motivation relies on your values and processes for achieving your objectives. Your values drive your goals, but unlike goals, which have a end point, values direct your behaviours long-term far beyond goals attainment. Given this, we direct our attention intrinsically in helping identify your values by understanding the importance behind your objectives.


Behaviour change goes hand-in-hand with mindset. As your behaviours guide your actions, your mentality orients your actions and reflects your attitudes and beliefs surrounding your objectives. Mindset is essential because it determines your perseverance and determination to achieve your fitness goals. First and foremost, our trainers work to build mindsets that align with a long-term, lifestyle approach to health and fitness.

A lifestyle mindset focuses on creating behaviours that become part of your everyday life, rather than short-term fixes. We also promote mindsets centred on improving your behaviours and a mentality that accepts challenges that arise, rather than avoiding them. This mindset focuses on development and instilling a belief that you can improve your behaviours through education and learnt experience.


Personalising Your Experience Our Results Speak For Themselves


We pride our personal training on client results. We take a comprehensive, client centred approach because we know your requirements for goal attainment will be different to anyone else’s.

That means we need to understand your objectives, develop a clear plan for achievement, and identify potential barriers unique to you with strategies for overcoming each. Success in our work comes not only from meeting your objectives, but instilling in you the confidence and knowledge to sustain your results long-term.

As each client is different in his or her background, goals, and challenges, every client journey with us is unique. Taking a client centred approach requires us to truly listen to each individual to understand their motivations, challenges, and expectations for pursuing personal training.

Along your journey, we’ll connect you with other clients that maintain similar objectives to share experiences and learn how others succeeded in overcoming barriers to reach their goals. Here you can listen as clients share their motivations and experience working with us.
