Our staff at Glasgow Giffnock

Michael Band

Personal Training Lead

How can I help you improve your health?

I am a specialist in the management of lower back pain having completed my level 4 qualification; this allows me to work closely with people rehabilitating from injury. My other areas of expertise are strength and conditioning training through functional exercise. Nutrition is also so important and this plays a big part in how we train and feel during the day so I like to spend time with you helping to refine your nutrition to help us with your training.

I help to inspire my clients to achieve their goals and aspirations. For all my clients I design a realistic structured approach tailored to you in order for you to fulfill your potential.

What my Clients say:

"I have been having personal training sessions with Michael now for 5 months and I am delighted with the results!

For years I have had issues with regards to my body image and weight but thanks to Michael I have been able to achieve goals that I never imagined possible! Following the exercise program he created for me and nutritional advice offered I have lost 9kg and dropped 2 dress sizes!

Michael is very understanding and takes the time to listen to your needs. Following h...is advice, I have made lifestyle changes that have not only lead to weight loss but an improvement in my overall wellbeing!

Training sessions with Michael are always varied and enjoyable. He is motivational and will encourage you to get through your workout even when you feel like giving up!

Michael is a fantastic personal trainer and I can't recommend him highly enough!" Trudi 25

Callum Hunter

Wellbeing Personal Trainer

How can I help you improve your health?

I coach strength and conditioning movements as tools for improving health, quality of life, functional fitness and sports performance. You will learn gym exercises as transferable functional skills which support your goals of weight loss, muscle gain and improved range of motion enabling you to be your very best. I coach a holistic approach to wellbeing covering exercise, activity and nutrition. To resolve pain, prevent injury and optimise your physical capabilities I will coach you to stabilise your joints and brace to create a neutral spine for global stability.

You will feel and see measurable improvements in the development areas selected for training and enjoy the results of our training programme not just in the gym but in all areas of your life.

Too much time spent in the office and business travel encouraged me to study and practise a health and fitness lifestyle and I will support and motivate you on your journey to looking and feeling great.
