I’m a personal trainer based in Edinburgh, Scotland with a passion for helping people live healthier lifestyles. With expertise in exercise management for lower back pain and nutrition and weight management, I get to combine my love for sport and passion of food into one great career. I have recently been bitten by the Ironman bug, having completed my first race and hoping to compete in many future races. In my previous life I’ve represented Scottish college's as a rugby player and practiced as a professional chef and business man. Now I focus my time training clients as young as 16 and as old as 87 and performing product training sessions as a Life Fitness Master Trainer.

Favorite Workout: DAP Cable squat upright rows

Last month we talked about how the personal training industry is growing rapidly around the world. It’s a great profession that I am proud to be a part of as an in-home trainer and Life Fitness Academy Master Trainer. But what does it take to be a great personal trainer? Many of the skills that make me successful today, I learned on the rugby pitch. 

Some of the most professional personal trainers I have seen operating on the gym floor have been present or ex-rugby players. It’s a sport where you have no place to hide! You are one of fifteen team players with a very specific skill. You might be a speedy winger or you could be a powerful front row player.

Why you ask is this relevant to personal training?
