At Scott’s Personal Training, all our coaches are qualified and experienced Personal Trainers and Strength and Conditioning coaches, therefore are capable of training the novice to the professional athlete whether you are training for health, body composition changes, performance-based training or competition prep.
We are all passionate about training and nutrition and love what we do. We are always learning and training and striving to better ourselves as better coaches and athletes. We live and breathe the lifestyle and get great satisfaction out of passing it on to our clients and seeing their transformations.
Our number one priority is safety and injury prevention: we emphasise on structured training programmes with correct technique and biomechanics to produce the best and safest results.
Regardless of your goals, it’s important that you structurally repair your body before you start loading and stressing your body with exercise. Most people’s structural health is poor, not necessarily because they have had trauma or injuries but because the bad postures and positions they put themselves in throughout their lives and also inactivity. This causes the muscles to hold the skeleton together in an incorrect way because muscles become weak, muscles become tight and muscles also switch off and become dormant. These issues create imbalances throughout the body so it’s Important to correct them before loading and stressing the body with exercise, otherwise Irreversible damage can be caused.
We periodise and structure our training programmes to produce the best results and prevent the risk of injury and overtraining. If there are structural Imbalances, we will give the appropriate corrective exercises to Improve structural health. There is a science to training, it’s not just about throwing some exercises together and hammering your body. The exercises and methods must be carefully chosen, so each programme can complement the next to prevent plateau or overtraining and promote recovery to produce continuous results.
The best training programmes in the world won’t work without proper execution. This is where correct technique and biomechanics play a part, if you are not stimulating the muscles in the correct way, then you are not going to get the response you are looking for. Every repetition and movement must be executed with perfect posture, stability, speed, control and distance.
We are led to believe exercise is good for us … but the reality is most of us are doing more harm than good, especially when weights are involved. Bad technique puts wear and tear on joints and connective tissues and leads to injuries; not necessarily causing injury at a specific moment but gradually, over the course of months, or even years. I’ve spent 15 years (written 2018) as a professional in a gym environment and daily, saw how common training with bad technique was … and witnessed bad technique being taught by other so-called professionals! For this reason alone, I cannot stress the importance of seeking the expertise of a good coach.
Consistently following the advice from your coach, the nutritional plan and your training programme will guarantee the results you are looking for. We can give you the formula to unlock your potential and coach you along the way but reaching that potential can only be achieved with the discipline to follow your training and diet.

say ABOUT US
When I started training at Scott’s gym I didn’t expect to progress as much as I did. In 5 months I was able to gain almost 5kg of muscle, growing my arms by 6.5cm, while losing 1kg of fat. My clothes fit much better and T-shirts that used to be loose on me are now tighter, especially at my sleeves.
I could not have achieved this without the support of Scott and my coach Patrick. I used to skip breakfast and go through most of the day without eating but Scott explained in my consultation how this would cause my body to burn muscle for energy. It wasn’t easy making changes, but Patrick always encouraged me to improve...
After the first lockdown I wanted to get fit for my sport of Gaelic Football. I felt I wasn’t as strong as I should be and needed some specialist Strength and Conditioning to take me to the next level.
My initial consultation with Scott was very beneficial in terms of information on nutrition. My coach Patrick was very friendly and knowledgeable and without doubt helped improve my strength, power, and cardio aspects of my fitness. All sessions were tailored around my specific goals which Patrick helped me achieve.
Within 5 months I gained 5kg, all of it muscle. My chest, arms, shoulders and legs were measured regularly and...
My coach Patrick helped transform me within 7 months of training.
I wanted to get back in shape after neglecting my health and fitness during the first UK lockdown and I made rapid progress to become the strongest and most muscular I have ever been.
Patrick has great knowledge and motivational skills which helped me to reach my goals. He taught me new exercises and to analyse my lifting technique in a deeper way so my form was as efficient as possible and I could make the best progress.
I particularly enjoyed deadlifting and within a few weeks Patrick guaranteed that he would get me to 200kg before Christmas...
I have now been training at Scott’s for 11 weeks. I had put on a lot of weight during lockdown and had lost confidence. Scott takes a lot of time at consultation to set your goals and impart his knowledge about nutrition and put a great plan into place.
He understood that I have a busy job but set me a very precise schedule and nutrition plan. I have lost weight, my body shape has changed and I have adapted a far healthier lifestyle. I have dropped 3 dress sizes and feel amazing!
I’ve been training with Scott since January 2019 and initially started seeing him to get into shape for my wedding. Everything is completely tailored to your wants and abilities and I’ve felt myself get stronger week by week, whilst actually enjoying training at the same time.
For the wedding, I really wanted to loose fat from the back of my arms. When I started with Scott my skin fold measurements measured 28mm on the back of my arm, but was down to just 7mm before the wedding...
I had just left an awful job and wearing this hospital gown realised I not only looked like Homer Simpson in a mumu, I had allowed work and other negative things to take over. Having decided to make a long term change I worked on diet, exercise and attitude.
Scott understood what I needed and works with his clients as individuals, regularly adapting his approach and programmes to reflect this. Scott is an expert in his profession of exercise and nutrition and isn’t a generic ‘great job’ trainer, but genuinely understands his clients and what drives them - I never, ever, thought I would be asked to be in a before and after shot - but here we are!
I first went to see Scott as I had no motivation to try and diet although I really wanted to lose weight.
Scott explained that to lose weight it’s not just about exercising; it is a life style change. It is about giving your body the right type of nutrition and eating the right foods at the right time as well as training regularly.
II had a three hour consultation with Scott. He weighed me and I was 11.5 stone, my measurements were almost 100mm. I knew at this point it was time to make a change. Scott went through what foods are high in protein and which foods contained good fats and what were high in sugar content...
I’ve always wanted to get into great shape with a low body fat and muscular physique but I didn’t even think it was possible for me to do so.
I had been living an unhealthy lifestyle all my life so I decided to do something about it and join a gym.
I was training for about a year with another personal trainer but I wasn’t getting results. I was watching Scott for a while and was liking what he was doing so I asked him to train me.
Scott made me realise it was about the diet and carefully planned training methods....
Scott is the most knowledgeable PT that I have had the pleasure of training with. This combined with his passion for health and fitness has seriously upped my game over the past 2.5 years.
I have significantly increased my strength and muscle mass, reduced body fat, and even reversed my osteoporosis diagnosis to achieve normal bone density. Scott's determined focus...
After the new year I decided to get down the gym and start working out to improve my physique. Having been down the gym a couple of times I just didn’t know what to do, where to start or if I was doing anything correctly etc etc, so I decided to get a Personal Trainer and started training with Scott in February.
At the time I weighed 82.1kg, 15.2kg of fat and 66.9kg of lean mass. These measurements were taken during my consultation with Scott which I thought was a massive eye opener. Not only did he work out my body fat and lean mass, he also educated me on nutrition and explained how eating certain types of foods at the right intervals with the adequate amounts would help me achieve my goals of building muscle and losing fat...
I started training with Scott because I needed to get my weight down and improve my health. I knew Scott was the right person to help me as I have known him for many years and seen what he does to himself and his clients.
Scott explained exactly what I needed to do in the consultation which lasted about 3 hours. I knew it wasn’t going to be easy but...
