A NEW STANDARD OF
Personal Trainer Edinburgh 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 personal training. 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 operating.
Our objective is to change the way personal training in Edinburgh is being delivered by creating a new standard that respects individual client differences and uses structure, planning and accountability to achieve measurable results.
We achieve this objective by taking a client centred approach to our personal training that focuses entirely on meeting your objectives by identifying your specific needs for goal attainment. Our approach places equal importance on exercise and nutrition, and we integrate systems for motivation and adherence to keep you consistent and ensure your progression.
We are certified personal trainers with the Representatives of Exercise Professionals (REPs) and our personal training service is a reflection of our true passion for health and fitness and our commitment to delivering a results and client focused service.
A Comprehensive Approach Personal Training & Customised Nutrition
Personalising your workouts
Designing eﬀective exercise programs 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 gym programs that oﬀer variety, enjoyment and reﬂect your unique needs. Our personal training combines both elements to create workouts both personalised to reach your objectives as well as varied and enjoyable.
To ensure progression within your exercise, our personal trainers record your gym work every session to allow for measurable and maximal progress. Your records form an ongoing exercise journal that provide objective evidence of your weekly progress. Importantly, your personal trainer 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 types of foods you enjoy, give you flexibility to choose your meals, and importantly, accommodate meals out, travelling and unpredictable events. Our personal trainers will perform specific nutritional calculations and assess your eating habits and patterns, digestive health and food preferences to structure a plan truly customised to you and your objectives.
To help build consistency into your nutrition we implement accountability systems to improve your adherence. Your personal trainer will keep you on track with your nutrition and as barriers to nutritional consistency inevitably arise, we work with you to identify these barriers and create mutually agreed upon contingency plans for overcoming them.
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.
As we shape your nutrition to your goals, we create more specificity in your meals.
Also, structure eliminates the guess work in your meals, making food selection much easier.
YOUR GOALS, YOUR RESULTS
Our job as personal trainers is not 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 keep your results long term.
As you reserve the right to select your personal trainer, 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.
Successful Body Transformation TAKES A COMPREHENSIVE, INDIVIDUALISED APPROACH
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 uses a combination of structured nutrition and planned exercise both designed to your requirements. Your personal trainer will complete nutritional calculations to set parameters on calorie intake as well as targets for specific nutrients then design you a fully customised nutrition plan to reach your weight loss targets.
We know that achieving successful weight loss relies 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 do arise, we take a individualised approach to identifying challenges unique to you and incorporating strategies to overcome potential barriers.
The Most Important Element SUSTAINABLE BEHAVIOUR CHANGE
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 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, our personal trainers shift focus onto working with you to build sustainable behaviours that not only meet your desired objectives, but preserve them long term. This involves selecting certain behavioural categories in line with your objectives and identifying barriers that may disrupt success within each behaviour.
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 personal trainers 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 personal 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.
