Douglas Birch

Wellbeing Trainer

How can I help you improve your health?

Personal Training is about being fun and motivational whilst working towards your set goals. Your goals could be something you have recently set or have been working towards for years - they could change your life and I'm here to help.

My sessions will be tough due to challenging your body to new potentials but fun to keep you interacted and motivated to come back for more!

What my Clients say:

“Dougie is always passionate when it comes to our sessions, he always works at 100% to help me achieve the results I'm looking for. As well as helping me towards my set goals he also teaches me along the way – this allows me to gather relevant information about exercise so that I feel comfortable in the gym alone and I always have an idea on how to train to my full potential!”

Danielle Haddock

Wellbeing Personal Trainer

How can I help you improve your health?

Everyone has been a beginner in the gym at one point in their life. With my degree in exercise, health and fitness combined with my experience in sport, group fitness and the gym, I can help build up your confidence and push you to work beyond what you imagined you could in a way that you enjoy and motivates you to want to train.

I specialise in:

  • Weight loss and nutrition
  • Muscular strength and toning
  • Exercise for injury recovery

My qualifications

  • Level 3 Personal Trainer

What my Clients say:

“Before working with Danielle, I hated coming to the gym. After having a consultation with her and going over the exercises and the reasons why she had chosen those exercises, I felt much more positive about coming to train. After 3 months, I saw a massive improvement in my range of motion, my strength and I was experiencing less hip and back pain. She also managed to get me to a point were both legs were equally strong - one side used to be significantly weaker than the other due to over compensating from the pain I used to experience. Now I am confident enough to train alone in the gym.”

Jade Lago

It’s my goal to see my clients achieving their goals. My aim is to help you go from struggling with where to start to becoming confident in your workouts and enjoying the gym!

After going on a fitness and weight loss journey myself, along with having a young daughter, I can really empathise with your journey ahead and personally understand how hard it can be. I will use my experience and knowledge to help your overcome the hurdles you face on a day to day basis to help you get the results you are looking for.

I am all about enjoying your workout and think everyone should and can look forward to their time in the gym. When creating workout plans I start with what my client enjoys and build up from there factoring all their needs. My aim for every client to leave having enjoyed getting a step closer to their goal.
