I’VE BEEN A PERSONAL TRAINER SINCE 2010 AND HAVE LOVED EVERY MINUTE OF IT’
I’m a level 3 trainer PT qualified in nutrition, spin, box fit and circuit training which I like to incorporate into my training.
Naturally I want to see all my clients working hard but at the same time, I like for them to enjoy the sessions and have a laugh.
I’m a very sporty person and play a lot of football and occasionally boxing.
I enjoy taking part in many events with my clients such as 10ks, Tough Mudder, Spartan races etc. However, most of all I enjoy seeing my clients accomplish their goals at these events.
My biggest achievement as a trainer is helping my best friend lose 5 stone in weight. I was a very proud trainer and friend.
My biggest life achievement is my two beautiful daughters who make me smile every day (Bit cheesy, but true.)
With my wide-ranging qualifications, along with my 7 years as a successful self employed PT and over 10 years experience in gym based training, this gives me a good knowledge and practical base to help coach clients to their goals in a safe and efficient manner.
I like to use common sense and a no-nonsense approach when it comes to training and nutritional guidance. I have a true passion for health, training and nutrition. Even though I have many qualifications, I read up on many relevant topics and new research on a weekly basis in order to stay up to date to give my clients the best care I possibly can.
I love to challenge myself with a wide variety of fitness and sporting activities, this helps to further motivate my clients by showing them that I follow the exact same advice I give them. It can inspire them by my example, if they stick to my advice they can reach their goals.
For example, I have completed Tough Mudder and the much more difficult Spartan super race. These are both obstacle courses set over rough terrain the Spartan race being over a half marathon distance. I also challenged myself to drop my body fat to low levels and I’m delighted to say I achieved my goal. I have climbed mountains in Scotland including the highest Ben Nevis and an even higher mountain in New Zealand while I was travelling there.
Sports that I have a keen interest in are; Football, Cycling, Tennis, Badminton, Rugby, Golf, Skiing, Weight/Olympic lifting, Powerlifting, Strongman, Swimming, Boxing, Athletics and Formula 1.
In 2014, I was very lucky to able to travel for four months to Australia, New Zealand, Thailand and North Vietnam. This opened me up to experience different people and cultures.
Back To The 90’s!!!
I Started teaching in the fitness industry in 1995, starting with General ETM classes & over the years adding Reebok Step, Schwinn Spin, Boxercise, Body Combat, Body Pump, Cardiac Rehab, Metafit & 2 boys! Since 1997 Body Pump always my fav but, more recently Metafit taking that top spot, love the buzz after a Metafit class & more so the atmosphere & chat among participants & the good news stories about inch loss & even PB’s for races.
After working in gyms & fitness centres full time over an 18 year period I went back to work full time 4 years ago but just couldn’t give up my classes & still jumping about 5 days of 7!!
Look forward to seeing you at Martyn Paul Fitness Centre soon
Fitness has always been a passion of mine. I got in to gym based work from playing football. After losing interest through niggling injuries my attention slowly turned to solely gym work.
After working in Oil & Gas at the very start of my working career, the day I was made redundant was the beginning of where I am today. I worked tirelessly in a supermarket to raise funds for my PT Qualification which I finally got in 2017.
Since then I’ve put my energy in to helping as many people as I can. I’ve worked with people of all ages and all levels. From a 13 year old Olympic Level Ice Skating Dancer to males in their 40’s stepping foot in a gym for the first time in their life. From a Scottish Strongman Athlete to On the go mum’s who just want to get that little bit fitter and stronger. No challenge puts me off!
Everyone’s start point is different, everyone’s goal is different and for me that’s what I enjoy the most. I do my best to facilitate the needs of all and work to make sure after every session my client leaves knowing they have gained something new.
Everyone has their own struggles and I love putting the puzzle together to work out how to help them. I’m always building my own knowledge through podcasts, social media and people I see as mentors to me to be able to do this. I look forward to working together with you to reach your desired goal, however big or small!
I have always been a very active person and do everything a million miles an hour. If you can do it faster and get more done why would you not!? I love to have a laugh with clients while pushing them to their limit at the same time.
I’ve worked in the industry since I left education and have loved every minuet of it. Meeting new people all the time and showing them that all the things they thought they couldn’t do they can and absolutely smash it out the park at the same time is what it’s all about! Let’s gogogo!
I love boxing training and am a qualified boxercise instructor. I love incorporating plyometric training to my workouts, anything with a jump and I’m there!
I have always had a sporty background whether it was dancing, netball, martial arts, or finally weight lifting - where I found my passion for the gym and to help people change their life for the better!
Getting my level 3 PT and nutrition qualification was the best decision I ever made, with a 4 year background to weightlifting I finally decided to push for my dreams and help people change there life for the better physically and mentally.
When I started training I quickly fell down the route of bodybuilding and loved the whole process of constantly building that perfect physique.
I love working with people and I thrive off helping them achieve their goals, everyone has there story and own pathway to get them to where they want to be and I couldn’t get anymore satisfaction when we get them there.
I’ve been a Personal Trainer for 3 years but I have been involved in sport most of life. As an adult my main focus has been kickboxing and lifting weights but more recently I’ve been working towards completing my first triathlon and level 1 triathlon coaching.
I’m a level 3 Personal Trainer and also a kickboxing instructor, qualified in nutrition (for weight loss and sports nutrition), circuit & core training and functional training.
My aim as a PT is to provide my clients with the necessary knowledge on exercise and nutrition that means they can achieve their goals and be able to maintain them too! Supporting them to build their confidence in the gym and with creating a healthier lifestyle that works for them.
