What my Clients say:

“I can’t recommend Matthew enough for a personal trainer! I’ve just finished my sessions and have noticed a huge difference with my confidence in the gym and also within myself. Matthew helped me realise that the gym isn’t as scary as you first might think and got me using equipment I couldn’t even imagine myself using six months ago. Matthew completely understood my goals and was more than willing to help me achieve them!”- Abby

What my Clients say:

"Gemma helped me lose over 15kg, in just 4 months, on the lead up to my wedding day! I smashed my goal and lost more weight than I thought was possible - all thanks to a perfectly tailored training program which also focused on my nutrition and creating healthy habits.  Not only has Gemma helped me become more confident in myself but I have seen such a difference in my body composition, perfected my exercise techniques and most importantly I am loving the gym again - an environment I can't seem to get enough of! She’s an incredible trainer and was by my side at every step. Couldn’t recommend a better person to help you achieve your goals".

What my Clients say:

"Having Verne as my PT helped me get to my goal of passing the fitness test for the navy. He also helped me get stronger on the bench in the 2-week training. I lost 1kg he has a great personality and is great to train with."

"I've recently started PT sessions after an old running injury and a recent surgery meant that my fitness was at an all-time low. I've never really been a gym person, but since starting sessions with Verne, I'm now converted! Verne has worked with me and a physio to build a tailored fitness plan and workout routine and has been really encouraging and helpful I've seen so much progress in only a couple of months and couldn't speak more highly of him."

Amy Lyon

Personal Trainer

How can I help you improve your health?

Amy started her fitness journey over 7 years ago after being on an endless diet-binge cycle. Through an introduction to weight training, she started to feel stronger, had more energy and saw a change in her body shape. This has led her to become a Personal Trainer, so she can help more individuals feel happy, strong and confident in themselves. 

Regardless of whether you want to lose weight, get stronger or improve your fitness or flexibility, Amy's mission is to guide you to create habits that suit your needs and the goals you want to achieve.

Tiegan McPadden

Wellbeing Personal Trainer

How can I help you improve your health?

My engagement with fitness has stemmed from an early age through playing Pro Youth Football to Scottish Regional level. This drive and passion for sport encouraged my healthy habits and progressively led me to achieve a degree in Fitness Health and Exercise and BSc Honours in Sport Science.

I have the foundation of applied knowledge, variety and experience in health and fitness which is essential to helping others meet their personal goals. I understand that starting your journey may be daunting, however, I am a friendly, open and approachable individual who not only is keen to know you as a client but get to know you as a person too as this is the key to achieving success.

I'm passionate, determined and goal orientated, which is reflected through my current knowledge and experience. I enjoy helping others in setting their own goals and pushing them to achieve their goals as well as a better version of themselves. As your Personal Trainer, I will provide you with tailored programmes and provide you with the support, knowledge and motivation you require to achieve your goals. Everyone’s goals are unique and I'm keen to undertake new challenges and promote a healthier population.

Sport science has allowed me to gain deeper understanding of the type of training required for athletes and sport specific training through specific strength and conditioning, which is a prospect I am more than keen to provide.

I am also qualified to teach both Spin and MetaFit classes which are great to get involved in and which are both time efficient classes to engage with to increase your activity levels! I will bring the variety, knowledge and experience to leave you with a worthwhile and positive session.
