What our clients say

Louise, fitandhappy PT client

I never imagined how much I could achieve in such a small space of time. fitandhappy helped peel me off the sofa and squat jump into my new, healthier life. Amy has been an incredible support throughout my weight loss journey. I can’t recommend fitandhappy enough, they have turned my life around in so many ways!

Lissi, fitandhappy PT client

I started with Julia just over a month ago. I have lost a stone and have learned how to eat a balanced diet. No calorie counting... no cravings anymore ( that took a few weeks to pass) and no binges. Julia has changed my attitude to food which I didn't think was possible.

Jemma Valentine, Personal Trainer and fitandhappy Senior 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.

Alex Robb, Personal Trainer and fitandhappy Coach

Alex qualified as a Personal Trainer in 2015, her journey into the fitness world starting after being diagnosed with an autoimmune disease. Seeing what a massive impact exercise and a healthy balanced diet had on her confidence and health, she knew this was the right career path.
She loves food and cooking. Alex feels passionate about it and loves recreating her favourite dishes, making them more nutritionally dense so she can still enjoy all the food she loves.
At the weekend you’ll find Alex walking her dogs, eating good food and spending time with friends and family!

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. ​
