Personal Trainer

How can I help you improve your health?

Starting off my training experience as a teenager I went through every sports phase imaginable. Starting off as a rugby player I’ve been fortunate enough to experience a lot through playing the sport, which brought me to focus on strength and conditioning. Currently I call myself a CrossFit “athlete” spending a lot of my free time perfecting various new skills always learning to compete to the best of my abilities.

Training in a gym can be an intimidating experience at times and I’m here to make it as fun and stress free as possible. Having followed my own training plan since I got into training 8 years ago I come with a vast knowledge across different training philosophies. From functional fitness, sports conditioning, Olympic weightlifting, fat loss and muscle gain. So don’t hesitate to stop me on the gym floor and ask some questions relating to your goals.

Personal Trainer

How can I help you improve your health?

I will look at all aspects of your lifestyle, including nutrition, and would design a tailored program for you to achieve your personal goals and monitor your progress. We will start with a mini health check to help understand your current health and make a plan to improve areas that need attention for increased fitness and better health. I will also advise on classes and programmes to do outwith our Personal Training time to help boost what we do in the gym and allow you a varied, interesting programme to increase your success. 

About Me

Having faced numerous personal obstacles of my own, I decided to pay overdue attention to my health and wellbeing. I wanted to improve my fitness level, overall health and reduce my weight. Once I started to see success, it became a lifestyle choice for me and I believed I could support others to do the same. I gained qualifications as a Personal Trainer and in additional areas of interest including TRX Suspension Training, Kettlebell Training and Circuit Training. I have also studied Pre- and Post-Natal Fitness and continue to add to my qualifications to offer a varied knowledge base to my clients. 

Ciara Dickson

Personal Trainer

How can I help you improve your health?

I want to help clients create healthy habits and have fun exercising. I have a BSc (Hons) in Sport and Exercise Science and an MSc in Clinical Exercise Science, during which I focused on promoting exercise to prevent and manage long term health conditions.

I am qualified to work with clients living with and beyond cancer, using exercise to improve the associated side effects.

I work with clients to ensure they feel confident using the gym and that the programme is specific to their goals, and I aim to improve physical and mental health through exercise sessions.

About Ciara
I am friendly and caring, and have always been interested in exercise. I trained and competed at a high level of Irish Dancing from a young age, winning major competitions including 2 world titles alongside my team. This has given me a good understanding of the training required to compete at a high level. I would like to pass this on to junior members to provide support for their own training. When I stopped dancing I struggled with finding a healthy balance with exercise and a change in body shape following years of intense training. I now train to manage my mental health and reach the physical goals I set. I have found enjoyment in my training and want to help others do the same. I understand the challenges that are faced with exercise and changing our behaviours and want to encourage others to live a healthy lifestyle, build confidence and enjoy exercising!

  • BSc (Hons) Sport & Exercise Science
  • MSc (Hons) Clinical Exercise Science

Lauren McWade

Personal Trainer

How can I help you improve your health?

Having spent the last 2 years on my own fitness journey, I am able to relate to all the challenges and fears that you are maybe feeling and facing. I have completed my HNC and HND in sports, fitness and exercise and am here to help everyone reach their own specific goals. We will work together to create a tailored training programme and nutrition plan for you to see the best possible results. I have successfully worked with clients on their weight loss journey, toning and shaping. The main aim of each of my sessions is for my clients to leave happy and having enjoyed the session. 

I am a competitive horse rider who has been riding for over 20 years and previously rode for Scotland. I started to struggle with my appearance a couple of years ago and decided to join the gym to lose weight initially which then led into toning and strengthening, since then I fell in love with the process and want to be able to help people who are in a similar situation. I am extremely passionate about my job and helping others and love to see people reach their goals that they set out to reach. 

My qualifications

  • HNC & HND in Sports, Fitness & Exercise

Jamie Neill

Personal Trainer

How can I help you improve your health?

I have a Sports Studies degree and 15 years’ coaching experience in fitness and sport, spanning several countries within leisure centres, education and mental health groups. This has developed key skills that ensure I meet the needs of any client, notably communication, drive, empathy and a positive attitude. Whether a shy starter, to training for a competitive event, I’ll give you my knowledge and motivation to smash any limiting beliefs and make progress.

At Nuffield, I also provide Sports Massage, teach Boxercise, Les Mills GRIT and Spin, plus tutor the Lifeguard and First Aid course.

About Jamie

I’m friendly, outgoing and love a challenge, and keep health and fitness as an integral part of my life. I competed internationally for Scotland at badminton, reaching 75 in the world and winning the Scottish title twice; a journey that meant full-time training and commitment. I’ve since began hiking, bagging 100 Munro mountains in 2019, and completing a triathlon, the West Highland Way and the 4000-metre Mount Toubkal in Morocco; all for charity. The outdoors and gym have greatly improved my physical, mental and social health. Since 3 of my family have dealt with MS, I value living life to the full and am passionate about helping others to get fitter, build a strong mindset, and develop their confidence and self-belief, both in the gym and in everyday life.

What my Clients say:

“Jamie’s skills and knowledge identified with my goals, and his motivational style of teaching and training brought the best out of me. He was thoroughly interested in my health and wellbeing and had the passion, personality and sense of humour to make me feel at ease from the beginning, then to persevere and work hard."
