Jon Taberner

Wellbeing Personal Trainer

How can i help you improve your health?

After deciding to get fit and lose weight 6 years ago, fitness has now become such a passion that it’s now my career.

I have personal experience in weight loss, having lost 6 stone with a programme I designed for myself, as well as muscle gain, having gained 2.5 stone in muscle since, so can accommodate a wide range of goals that people may have.

Using past experiences combining my degree and level 3 personal trainer qualifications, I not only have the technical knowledge to help people achieve, but also being able to empathise and understand that overall fitness isn’t as black and white as it may seem, but has many other factors that can influence progress.

I’ve always had an interest in the foods we eat and how it affects the body, leading to the completion of a degree in nutrition, which has given me the in-depth scientific knowledge required to advise on the foods we eat.

My qualifications

  • Level 3 Personal Trainer
  • BSc (Hons) Nutrition
