"If you want the BEST Personal Trainer In Edinburgh, You NEED to see Alan" -Fergus Burns
Whether it is personal training for fat loss, strength training, or a life-changing body transformation, I will take you on a life changing journey to achieving optimal health, amazing results in the best possible way!
This won’t take long
(I know you’re busy).
I think I know why you’re here. You’re not happy. Life is - mostly - good. Work is going well, you’ve got a solid group of friends, you’re confident in your relationship.
But… what about your body? Be honest. How do you feel when on holiday? Do you get naked with your other half without a second thought? Are you proud of how you look?
Or are you self-conscious, not to mention wiped out, stressed, and (hate to admit it) a bit weak most of the time?
Keep reading. This is something you need to get involved in.
You’re In Your Prime - So Why Don’t You Feel It?
You’re not old! But sometimes you feel it. Something’s not right. You shouldn’t feel exhausted every morning, or too tired (or stressed) for sex. And it’s definitely not right to have aches and pains. Not at your age.
You keep saying you’ll tackle it. We all do. But how many times have you said “this year, I’ll sort myself out”?
Life gets in the way. Trust me, I get it! I’ve been through some pretty heavy life shit (recently divorced? - I’m with you…) I’ve gained more weight than I wanted, and know how crap that feels. I also know how miserable it is to diet to 3% body fat as a pro Muay Thai fighter.
Bottom line is I know how to lose weight the healthy way. And I’ve built the simple habits which helped me stay lean and (more or less) sane - even during my divorce.
Sick Of Feeling Overweight, Out Of Shape, Exhausted?
Tired Of Making Excuses?
No Clue How To Get Started?
I get it - a lot of people come to me stressed out, overwhelmed and feel totally lost & confused with it all.
Here's what I, and do do differently... I leave nothing to chance!
I offer a truly unique personal training experience and I am committed to helping every single one of my clients achieve their lifelong dream of being in their best shape of their lives.
“Diets” Don’t Work
Stop wasting time on fad diets and stressing about what to eat and what not to eat. Not only will I help make nutrition a much clearer & easy topic I also aim to educate and empower you so you can carry on eating healthy long after we finish working together.
Learn To Train Smarter
(Less Is More - But Only If You Know How) Maybe you had time for daily workouts in your 20s. Back then it didn’t matter if you went to the gym at 6pm and got home two hours later, grabbing some food on the way home. You can’t do that now. Maybe you’ve got a family, you need to prepare for a meeting, or pack for a flight in the morning. Start training smarter - with shorter sessions that get it all done.
Will Power Is A Myth
(It’s Time To Stop Trying To Go It Alone)
This is a hard one for us to admit, but it’s true. We’ve been conditioned to think about will power all wrong. When you want to lose weight, get back into training, or re-programme your habits, you need accountability. Basically, you need someone on hand - but one who’s an expert in health and fitness.
"I was quickly falling into the trap of the busy doctor lifestyle, long hours, stressful days etc. It was all starting to show on my body. When I spoke to Alan I was really impressed at how much he wanted to work with my lifestyle and working hours rather than against it, it made the process so much easier"
- Asef (Radiologist)
Why Listen To Me?
There are a few things you need to know about me. I’m a fitness & fat loss expert. My clients get impressive results without losing the will to live! But that’s not all you need to know. I’ve been single, married, and I’ve been through a divorce and out the other side. My approach to health and fitness helped me stay healthy throughout all that.
I know how to train, eat, and stay in shape even when life gets busy or stressful.
My methods aren’t strict or weird. They’re realistic and make sense. (I promise not to make you do any of the stuff I had to do as a pro Muay Thai fighter - I’d never diet like that again either!) My way of doing things won’t make you stressed or act neurotic.
I am very proud of the reputation I have built as a personal trainer here in Edinburgh, I approach every new client with the utmost integrity.
Unlike most personal trainers who will take on any client, no matter how wavering your commitment, I am very particular about who I take on as a client. To this extent there are certain conditions that I make each client aware of before working together:
"I got married became a dad and with that came the the dreaded "dad bod" - I hated being such a cliche. I knew it had to change, having no energy to play with my kids, no energy to spend quality time with my wife, not fitting in to any of my clothes was all starting to really affect me. I'm so proud of what I achieved so far and I feel the best I have in years!"
- Mehdi (Software Architect)
"I hated when I sat down and could feel my tummy roll over my jeans. Working with Alan was tough, but I loved learning about how to lift weights - he's such a great teacher and really motivated me. I'll always carry on lifting weights now as I'm so much more confident of what I'm doing"
- Alison (IT Recruitment)
"When i stopped playing football my weight started creeping up, before I knew it I put on almost 2 stone. I wasn't always able to get to the gym, so having the mixture of bodyweight/home workouts & strength training with Alan was perfect. "
- Kevin (Railroad Engineer)
"Like most people I'd usually finish my day with a glass of wine (or two) which was a really consistent habit of mine. Alan had me text him at the end of every evening to check in and hold me accountable. I found this really empowering that I was taking the control back and started to build new habits"
- Robyn (CEO)
"I was going to the gym for a while but wasn't seeing any differences. I liked how Alan trained his clients - hard, but encouraging and fun. Every workout was well thought out and I loved the structure and the variety."
- Nickunj (IT Consultant)
"I dreaded bringing my kids to swimming lessons, having to change into my swimming costume filled me with anxiety. I tried every weight loss diet and product I could find, but surprise surprise I put the weigh back on afterwards - even if it did work. I loved the common sense approach Alan brought to our sessions and how much he pushed me - he's tough, but very supportive"
- Jane (Stay at home mum)
Personal training Isn't just about the workouts we do together - it's everything you do outside of our sessions also...
Here are some of the tools I use to keep help you get the most amazing results:
#1 My Custom Built App
For the workouts you'll need to do outside of our 1-1 time I use my own app to deliver these - I'll create simple & effective workouts suited to you & your goals - plus, I also get to see when if you've done them!
#2 Training Plan
With every client, I upload the whole program. This way we can track weights lifted, check overall volume and check progression. As my old mentor told me "if your not tracking, your guessing"
Nutrition is one of these things that gets so overcomplicated and confusing - not to mention social pressures and responsibilities. Creating a simple and effective meal plan that ensures the results you want whilst not making you eat chicken and broccoli 24/7.
