My Personal Fitness Process.

Start with the WHY – I enjoy breaking down what people need and want for their health and fitness. Starting with helping people realise the ‘why’ ,the reason for wanting to lose weight or run a first marathon can be inciteful and a good way to focus motivation and effort.

The WHAT  – Specific goal setting and movement screening will throw light on what physical issues may need addressed to get you where you want to be. If you’re an athlete, you will have access to professional level athlete testing from Nikki Gibson Performance Insights. Packages include ….

The HOW – Maybe your hamstrings cramp up constantly, or you struggle with getting enough fruit and veg in your diet? We’ll work together to show you how to get lazy glutes to do their fair share of the work to take the strain off the overworked hammys, or how to increase your fruit and vegetable intake. You’ll be given a clear,personalised training programme to follow that will be tailored to your experience and fitness level.

 The When – The best training programme in the world won’t change anything if it’s not used consistently. We’ll work together to fit your training needs into your schedule, and make sure your other lifestyle factors like sleep and nutrition are looked after. You’ll have access to software that lets you easily record each session, and allows me to monitor progress.

Based at Edinburgh Leisure’s most iconic venue, the Royal Commonwealth Pool, this recently refurbished venue boasts not only state of the art fitness equipment, studio space and a sports therapy room, but also a 50m pool, diving areas, and a relaxing café, all set against the stunning background of Edinburgh’s Holyrood Park.

Whatever your goal is, or how far you might be away from it, you’ll be welcomed into a supportive environment, helping guide you to make lifestyle changes which lead to long-lasting results.

I have achieved more with Gregor than I ever could have imagined. I’m a more confident, happier, healthier, fitter person
