Introduction

I provide a formula of exercises that generate a noticeable decrease in fat mass and an increase in lean muscle - resulting in superior conditioning and an eye-catching physique.

I possess a strong fitness background, I enjoy all types of sport and the conditioning that accompanies them. I have played rugby since the age of 10 and I have went on to play Gala and Watsonians at premiership level in scotland. I started lifting proper weights in a gym at the age of 15, have been lifting consistently ever since.


My love for training eventually materialised into more serious strength and conditioning and at the age of 17 I started more structured training with top coaches. What began initially as a hobby and a means enhancing rugby performance soon became a way of life.


My passion for sport and exercise shaped my further education. I studied Applied Sports Science at the University of Edinburgh and graduated with a Bachelors Degree. This has given me excellent knowledge anatomy, biomechanics, physiology and S&C. I constantly look to apply this knowledge into to my sessions to allow my clients to get the most out of personal training.

My applied experience, combined with the qualifications and knowledge in the theories underpinning exercise allows me to help you achieve your goals.

Qualifications

  • BSc Degree Applied Sports Science (Edinburgh University)

  • Reps Level 3 Personal Trainer

  • UKSCA Strength and Conditioning instructor level 1

More about Martin

After University, I moved to Australia to play rugby where I played in the Queensland Premiership. I also gained vital experience working in the fitness industry.

In 2009 whilst in Australia I suffered a serious knee injury. At one point I was told I categorically I would never play again or perform any kind of lower body weights. In 2010 I tried a new type of surgery and underwent a lateral meniscus transplant from a cadaver. I was the first documented person to ever make it back to high end contact sport after having a complete lateral meniscus replacement.


I have been involved in elite conditioning and exercise for almost 12 years and have learned some valuable things from some top strength and conditioning coaches (Border Reivers, SRU, Queensland Reds). This has helped me to refine and broaden my own skill base - allowing me to provide the best possible service to you!

The fitness industry is saturated with "cowboy PTs", and we live in a fitness culture where anybody can do a 6 week course to become a personal trainer. it is important you pick a trainer who has the qualifications, experience and know how to help you transform your physique and achieve your goals. 

Whether you need to lose weight, increase strength, improve sporting performance or any other fitness related goal - my training methods will help you achieve this, using the most theoretical and effective approach.
