Personal Trainer Edinburgh
Hello and thank you for visiting our site.
We are certified personal trainers in Edinburgh and members of the Representatives of Exercise Professionals (REPs) and Health Professions Council.
With a complete lack of regulation for personal training in Edinburgh, there has been a progressive decline in the standard of personal training services. We see this among personal trainers that fail to structure and record client exercise, formalise and track nutrition, or place any focus on client education and mindset. This is evidenced by an increasing number of personal training related injuries, unsatisfied client reports, and failed goal attainment.
Our objective is to change the way personal training in Edinburgh is being delivered by creating a new standard that respects individual differences and uses structure and planning to accelerate goal attainment.
As you reserve the right to select your personal trainer, we similarly maintain the right to select our clients. We look to work only with individuals strongly committed to achieving their desired health and fitness goals and demonstrate this commitment through discipline and consistency with our instruction. Also, as part of being motivators we create accountability with our clients. We build consistency by holding our clients responsible for following our prescription, so they demonstrate the same commitment to their goals as we do. In return, we use our professional abilities, knowledge and experience to provide the required instruction, guidance and essential motivation to accelerate progress and achieve results.
As each individual invariably searches for the best personal trainer in Edinburgh, it is important to first identify the standard that all trainers should be operating within. We invite you to explore our site to gain more information on our standard of service and please feel free to contact us for any additional information.
PERSONAL TRAINING SERVICES IN EDINBURGH
Personalised Fitness in Edinburgh
Personalising fitness is both a science and an art. To accelerate body transformation, research shows a clear advantage to applying evidencebased fitness. Our personal training utilises evidence-based guidelines to structure your workouts and create exercise programs designed to accelerate your goals. Also, creativity in our design helps us select and organise the most appropriate exercises for your level of fitness training.
All of your workouts are recorded to provide an ongoing training diary that serves to track and ensure progress each gym session. We provide you complete access to your training diary, which lets you revisit previous gym programs and completed workouts. When performing exercises, your technique is our highest priority. Your personal trainer will carefully instruct each exercise with ongoing technical correction to ensure proper performance and minimise any risk of injury.Read More
Customising nutrition means identifying foods that are well suited to your body type and accelerate your fitness goals. Following another individual’s nutrition plan can be highly ineffective and detrimental to both your overall health and goals. We take a stepwise, lifestyle approach to nutrition. Our personal trainers assess your current eating habits to understand what small, manageable changes can be made and apply an evidence-based approach to determine the right foods and correct amounts to prescribe.
Our objective is to eliminate the great challenges that accompany nutrition plans. To help you remain consistent, we provide you with ongoing, structured nutrition plans that outline your foods, portions and eating times. Your nutrition plans remain flexible to meet the demands of your lifestyle and importantly teach you about foods that make you look and feel great.Read More
Motivation & Education
Finding the necessary motivation to look and feel healthier is understandably challenging. Many people struggle to stay motivated because of fear of failure, low self-confidence, poor heath strategies or lack of support. Our approach to personal training focuses on each client and their motivational needs. We feel that motivation should come from verbal and written encouragement, education and results. We work to achieve all forms of motivation and identify any additional areas where we can support you.
Also, we feel that client education has an important role in motivation. The more our personal trainers educate you about exercise and nutrition, the more confidence and motivation you will gain to achieve your goals. Your personal trainer will tailor an education plan to your needs and reserve time each session to review the selected topics.Read More
Injury Prevention & Movement Rehabilitation
Gym-related injuries commonly occur because of poor technique or inappropriate selection or progression of exercises. Our personal trainers take responsibility for your safety and minimise injury risk by selecting appropriate exercises for your fitness level in addition to continually reinforcing proper technique. Also, your personal trainer will ensure appropriate progression of your exercises and communicate with you prior to each session to understand if any changes in your health arise.
Furthermore, if you have an existing injury or condition that limits your exercise performance, we immediately integrate a plan to address the issue. Our personal trainers have the professional skills and abilities to design and implement rehabilitation plans specific to your physical needs. This may include designing rehabilitation exercises into your gym program or using alternate physiotherapy methods to resolve the injury.Read More
Weight Loss 2018
Our approach to weight loss uses a combination of structured nutrition and planned exercise. We also use scientific research to identify and predict common challenges associated with weight loss and incorporate proven methods to overcome potential barriers.
As each client is different in his or her goals, fitness experience, health background, challenges and even personalities, every client journey is unique. Here you can listen to our clients share their experiences and hear about some of the challenges we helped them overcome.
Our YouTube channel is our favourite platform for interacting with our audience. Our channel allows us to connect with clients and like-minded fitness individuals to provide useful content and showcase more about who we are. Every week we create and share new videos related to fitness, nutrition and health and give our audience the opportunity to interact with us.
On our website, you will also find a video gallery where you can find more videos specific to providing content on nutrition, exercise and healthy lifestyle practice.YouTube Channel

Above all, we are all genuinely passionate about health and fitness and the daily practice of what we teach.
It is still debated whether full or deep squatting causes unwanted stress on the knees. In this blog post we discuss the differences between half and full squatting and examine the literature to understand what the evidence shows with regards to the suggested dangers of full squatting.
