- Magazine Features -

In 2020 during the first covid lockdown I created an article to be featured in two different knitting magazines. I developed a routine of simple stretches to help knitters stay supple, as that particular hobby involves sitting for long periods of time.

- Charity Run With Pat-

In 2022 I organised a charity 5k run for the Scottish Association for Mental Health. The main focus of this was my client Pat, who lost a brother to suicide and struggled with mental health himself. At 65 he is an inspiration to the gym as a whole as he has fully embraced fitness training. We planned this charity run together to raise awareness of mental health issues and raise funds for a good cause. We managed to raise an incredible £2217

- ReBoot -

One of my current projects, alongside James Docherty, is to set up ReBoot, focusing on building young but highly skilled peronsal trainers and helping them create a business that will last them a lifetime. This passion project came from my own journey to become the PT I am today, the struggle to build my own business from scratch and the lack of support that I found from the industry.

Reboot wants to modernise the fitness industry away from the sterotypes of just being skinny or massively strong, and help everyone find their niche and improve their lives through fitness, health and exercise.

- Client Success Stories -

 - Stefan McCallum -

Having recently turned 30 and finding myself getting more unhealthy over the past year I decided it was time for a lifestyle overhaul and reluctantly joined the local gym.

I met Thomas and he was happy to sit down with me and create a comprehensive and realistic fitness plan to work through together to reach my goals.

I have been training with Thomas for over six months and I have witnessed an incredible personal transformation. I am now stronger, healthier and more confident than I’ve ever been. He is a great motivator and his knowledge has been invaluable and educational.

If you are looking for a disciplined, supportive and motivational personal trainer Thomas comes highly recommended.

- Gordon Horne -

Over 3 years of training Gordon we have gone beyond a PT / Client relationship and have found a friendship that will last a life time. When we started training Gordon had hardly ever touched a weight and had never found enjoyment from training, now I can't keep him out of the gym. He has managed to build his deadlift from 70kg all the way up to 180kg and build his fitness levels up to a point when he could complete a circuit to where he is now running a full 5k.

There has been a complete physical change in Gordon but mostly importantly he has found a confidence that he never knew he had. In 2022 I was lucky enough to attend Gordon's wedding to Tracy and to find out from those in attendance how much of a positive change he has made is inspirational. It doesn't stop there for Gordon either, he is determined to keep improving and building himself up for a lifestyle of health and happiness. One of our main aims not is to complete Tough Mudder and raise money for a charity that is very close to his heart

- Gerard Mooney -

Having never been in a gym before knowing the correct exercise regime to achieve my goals was a daunting prospect.

Thomas has been a great PT in supporting my training objectives and I have seen a continual improvement from my sessions which are run in a relaxed yet supportive environment.

Thomas is focused on helping me achieve my goals and makes every session challenging (and somehow fun in a masochistic sort of way!). My fitness has increased noticeably and I’ve seen improvements in my ability to complete more core exercises, lift progressively heavier weights and generally push myself harder throughout each session. I find I actually look forward to my workouts.

Importantly:

  • Having never used free weights he ensured that my technique was always correct to avoid injuries.
  • Explained in detail which group of muscles each exercise was working and why the routine was set up in such a particular way.
  • He is extremely reliable and punctual, always set up and ready to start training ahead of time, with and exercise routine planned that was always challenging but extremely rewarding.

Thomas is completely focused in helping you achieve your goals and will always push you to get the results you want and I would have no hesitation in recommending Thomas as your personal trainer if you want to achieve your fitness and health goals.

- Marco Fallon -

Marco is a contant inspiration and for the past 2 year has done nothing but 100% effort into everything we have done together. Marco suffers from cerebral palsey and has had to fight to be able to live a normal life, but here he is working a 9-5 job, going out with his friends and family while hitting the gym 3 times a week, every week!

  • Barbell squat
  • Deadlift over 40kg
  • Incline Press 20kg dumbbells
  • Not only walk easier but walk hold 16kg dumbbells and farmers walk with them
  • Use a bike to not only cycle, but do sprints and hill climbs

- Jane Rowantree -

I've been training since August last year, I hadn't trained for over 2 years due to surgery on both feet. Thanks to training with Thomas I feel fitter and healthier than I did in my 30s. Highly recommend.

 - Chrisy Watson -

I started with Thomas a few weeks back, in such a short period of time I'm starting to see and feel a difference. I feel more confident in the gym and not shy to lift heaview weights. He's a great guy and is great at his job, highly recommend.

- Daniella Kidd -

Daniella started PT with me because while she had been a ballerina in her teens, she has done almost no consistent exercise since that point. Together we have built up her strength, fitness and mobility to a point where she is loving exercise for the first time and finding every day life easier and easier.

Since we began training she has given 100% effort no matter if she was tired or even just having a bad day. She has managed to build up her muscle mass % while bringing down her body fat % drastically since we began. She has routinely completed fitness test circuits and has halved the time it took to complete them while also building up her deadlift from 40kg all the way to 70kg

She is taking a step further in 2022 and has signed up for a 10k run in May to not only raise money for a good cause but show how far she has came in such a short period of time.

 - Angela McCutcheon -

I've been doing personal trainning with Thomas for the last few months. He is a highly motivated instructor and knows how to work you hard but still make it enjoyable. I have noticed a difference in my fitness and body shape since doing these sessions. I would have no hesitation in recommending Thomas to anyone who needs that extra push.
