Are you ready for Personal Training?

All we need from you is real commitment and honesty.  Be prepared to let go of the diet mindset. It doesn't serve you when it comes to long term success.

We'll show you how to create healthy habits that are sustainable in the real world and kind to your body and mind.

You'll need to put in a little bit of effort to begin with before your new healthy habits start taking over. It's easy from then onwards.

By choosing fitandhappy you will work with Edinburgh female fitness expert Julia McCabe and her team.

Julia's approach intelligently combines personal training and nutrition coaching to help you adopt a lifestyle where exercising and healthy eating become a habit. 

Your programme will be designed exclusively for you and your coach will really get to know you. Your personal trainer will stay in touch to keep you motivated in between sessions.

You'll have access to our on-demand workout library for fun workouts in between your PT sessions. Or if you prefer, we design home workouts just for you.

You'll receive personalised nutrition and lifestyle coaching via our very own fitandhappy app. The app is also the place where we'll keep track of your new healthy habits and where you can see your progress.

Amanda Linekar - Personal Trainer and fitandhappy Boot Camp Coach

Amanda Linekar Personal Trainer, Strength and Conditioning Coach and fitandhappy Senior Coach

Amanda's summer months were spent swimming, hiking or riding a bike. During the winter Amanda would be skiing, snowshoeing or attempting to snowboard. Amanda was and still is always on the go and happiest when moving. Amanda has a background in Martial Arts, practising and competing in Shotokan Karate from a young age. Her love of sports and fitness grew and she went on to complete a degree in Sports Psychology, followed by a Masters in Strength and Conditioning from the University of Edinburgh. Amanda has been lucky enough to work with athletes and beginners alike whilst travelling the globe. She still gets a kick out of seeing her clients' self-esteem and confidence blossom right before her eyes. She believes that we should train for longevity and a healthy lifestyle, and is a firm believer in “Just do you and don’t compare yourself to others.” Fitness should build you up and make you feel great, not break you down.

Jemma - personal trainer, fitness coach and mamas coach at fitandhappy

Jemma Valentine, Personal Trainer and fitandhappy Coach

Jemma has a passion for the outdoors and brunch. She is keen to show you how little habits can make big changes to last you a lifetime. The outdoors provides so much more than a place to exercise, it changes your mind, your mood and your attitude.

Jemma discovered the importance of fitness back in 2012 when she worked in the Alps, went skiing most days but found recovery incredibly difficult due to an overindulgent lifestyle! She enjoys all kinds of movement and is on a mission to bag all 282 of the Munros in Scotland.

When not coaching for fitandhappy you can find her running, cycling or on a Pilates reformer.

She is ready to support you and drive you forward so you can achieve your goals and she doesn't want you to wait until Monday. Today is your day.

Don't want to go it alone? Buddy up for Group Personal Training


2:1 Personal Training

Train with a buddy. This option makes it more affordable and can be a good choice for those who like to work with a partner.

​The programme is slightly less individualised but works well as you have to be accountable to your buddy.

If desired you will be given a monthly home workout programme that you can do by yourself or with your friend/partner/husband.

Choose your preferred workout space. Often the outdoors work best for this as we are not restricted by space.

Train once, twice or up to five times per week​

Small Group Training

Less personalisation but more affordable and best suited to those who like to work in a team.

​Skip the cappuccino and muffin and meet in the park for a workout instead. It's great fun working out with your friends and it ensures you are being surrounded by supportive and likeminded people. People who try to lose weight in a group often see the best results.

If desired you will be given a monthly home workout programme that you can do by yourself or with your friends. ​
