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

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.

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.

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. ​
