Now offering Olympic Weightlifting classes at The Bodybuilding & Fitness Gym


I specialise in strength training for men and women in the 30-60 age bracket (although I don’t exclude those outside these ages). I use techniques I have developed as both a Personal Trainer and Strength and Conditioning Coach

Why do I focus on strength training? 

I believe strength training is the best all-round training bar none.  

​Strength training has so many benefits including improvements in strength, mobility, weight management, stamina, prevention of disease, balance, posture, risk of injury, bone density, wellbeing, self-esteem, sleep, stress relief and performance of everyday tasks. 

Strength is actually the base of every type of fitness. Think of it like the foundations of a house. If you have a weak foundation, your house is more likely to fall down. 

Of course, this doesn’t exclude doing other types of training, but people who want to get really fit neglect strength training at their peril. 

It is also a myth that older men or women (although less so) can't build muscle or transform their physiques. I am living proof of this given I didn't start training till I was in my 40's. 

Training is geared towards your level of experience, but always with a focus on correct technique, whether you're a complete beginner or a more experienced lifter looking to break through training plateaus. Your programme can be altered for any specific goals within the overall aim of improving your strength, body composition, health, and just making you feel better.  

If you are not getting the results you currently want at the gym, then hiring a coach can also increase your focus, motivation and improve your results in the most time efficient manner. This is especially important for people with busy lives who need to maximise the effectiveness of their time in the gym.  

I don't employ fads or gimmicks but use only a mix of tried and tested methods backed by the latest scientific research. I have trained clients of all ages and age is no barrier to improving your health and well-being. I am based at The Bodybuilding and Fitness Gym, a state-of-the-art facility in Leith, Edinburgh.  

I can also provide nutrition coaching for training clients. This is based on your goals whether they be weight loss or muscle building. This is a comprehensive service. For more details contact me to discuss your requirements.

If that sounds like the sort of training you are looking for, then don't hesitate to get in touch.
