Ideal body pending...
Achieving and maintaining your ideal body is a lifestyle change.
Hi, I'm Victoria
I’m a personal trainer based in Edinburgh and when I don’t coach, I spend my time taping balloons to my study skeleton, called Ozzy. This allows me to observe the direction of our muscle fibers, see what they do, when I move the joint(s) that muscle crosses. Here’s a little demo 🙂
With this knowledge I’m able to better design the exercises suited to you and your anatomy.
Yes, anatomically we’re all slightly different and these small differences will often dictate the discrepancy in results between you and the next person. The solution is to choose the exercises suited TO you and tweak the rest to work FOR you.
Yes, you won’t be getting any old random training program with me!
Most of my lifting career I was conflicted. I couldn’t decide whether I wanted to be skinny or strong. I tried to look for something in between, but lacking the knowledge and any idea of how to find valid information and who to listen to, I was always falling short of finding the right answer for myself.
So I’d go full on into a muscle building program, stop half way, because I’d perceive myself getting ‘too big’, abandon it and do a complete 360 into a weightloss program.
Inevitably, I developed poor eating habits and a broken relationship with food. Enough to say this wouldn’t take me anywhere and would leave me always unsatisfied with my own results.
It wasn’t that I lacked the grit or the discipline. Rather I didn’t have the right coaches and information.
I never stopped looking! Now, 6 yrs later I’m in a circle of some of the most prominent coaches and fitness experts in the country, that I can call my friends and peers! So if I don’t know the answer to any issues you’re having, I’ve got a strong network who has got our back!
Once you get to know me, you’ll see that I’m very demanding of myself, so what follows is a very special statement:
I’m proud to say that I’d hire my current self for my younger self, who was running pillar to post 6 yrs ago.
I’d tell my younger self to eat at consistent times, not replace meals with sugar, hire a knowledgeable coach to teach me how to train and guide me through my doubts and insecurities.
I couldn’t afford a coach at the time. But if you can – hire one, it’s a no-brainer! It is such a valuable investment!
WHY SHOULD YOU LISTEN TO ME?
You don’t have to, but if you need a coach who’s been in your shoes before and knows a way out then drop me an enquiry.
I’ve worked on my self relentlessly to improve the above, I read, journaled, researched, tried and failed, until I developed a strategy that works. But don’t take my word for it. Check out what my clients have got to say.
I’m also a bit of an anatomy and physics geek. Not a usual thing you’d hear a trainer say. But exercise is forces acting upon a human body or physics acting on anatomy. So I must know how that works if I’m to help you in any meaningful and most importantly safe way.
So what can I do for you?
- Help you build a powerful framework of training, nutrition and mindset.
- Help you fix your relationship with food (break the cycle of yo-yo dieting, binge eating and food anxiety)
- Provide structure to your workouts and a long term plan so you can stop wasting your time and break past the plateau you’ve hit ages ago!
- Tailor your training to best suit your body mechanics.
What does that matter?! Here’s an example: a squat can be great for building your butt if you’re somebody with relatively long upper legs (femurs), it will however do nothing for your butt, if they’re short! This means that you’re making a mistake choosing squats to build your bum and likely will see little to no results. With this information you can now choose a better suited exercise for the exact muscle you want to target.
- Provide you with immediate feedback.
When working out alone, often you don’t know where you’re going wrong so you continue doing the wrong thing without realising. In other words, you have no feedback loop. You don’t know what you don’t know. Hiring a coach will take care of that.
Are you still unsure?
