Laurence Land

Wellbeing Personal Trainer

How can I help you improve your health?

Your training should be two things, productive and fun. It shouldn’t feel ineffective or tiresome, and neither should healthy living, that’s where I can help. For over a decade my greatest passion has been diet, exercise and wellbeing. I know what it feels like to lose motivation or believe your goal is out of reach, but with the right changes it isn't! 

Whether you want to reduce body fat, improve your strength and flexibility, or just move pain free after injury. We can dig into your training and your lifestyle and get you on the right path by the end of your first session! I will give you all the support you need to stay motivated, all the knowledge to keep going in the future, and do whatever it takes to get you on the right path to achieving your goals in the shortest time possible.

Helping people to improve their lifestyle, their self-confidence and their future is an enormous source of satisfaction for me, it’s why I became a teacher, and it's why I've become a personal trainer, let me help you.

Sam Oakley

Rehabilitation Specialist and Wellbeing Personal Trainer

How can I help you improve your health?

I will work with you to construct a personalised programme that builds confidence and gets great results. I will help you to understand the reasons behind nutritional and programme design to ensure it is maintainable, whilst building your confidence in exercising and enhance eating behaviours to improve your physical health and wellbeing.

Whether you goals are to increase muscle mass and decrease fat mass to improve aesthetics and health, or to improve your mobility, balance and core strength to lower risk of injury, I promise to use up to date evidence-based knowledge from the highest quality research studies.

What my Clients say:

“I’ve never been one of those people who enjoys the gym but under the guidance of Sam, I have been more motivated than ever.  I’ve seen progress quicker than ever before and understanding the reasons for specific programming has helped a lot. The sessions are always fun and have great variety.”

Ryan Parlett

Wellbeing Personal Trainer

How can I help you improve your health?

Sport and fitness has always been a big part of my life and is something that I have enjoyed from a young age. I have participated in a wide range of sports over the years, from football to basketball and this has allowed me to gain knowledge on how different sports require different functions and movements within the body and how to adapt training to specific sports. As well as taking part in many sports I have trained within the gym myself for several years now and in that time have learnt new exercises and techniques to help mix up training so that the body does not adapt to consistently training in the same way.

My goal for you is to create a challenging workout and program that will require you to put the hard work in but will help you to achieve your personal goals efficiently. By understanding what your short/long term goals are, I will use all of my knowledge to make sure that the way you are training is specific and will allow you to reach the goals that have been set. I am here to help motivate and pass on what I know to you.

My qualifications

  • Level 3 personal training
