Work with me

In-person and online personal trainer

Hello, I suppose you’re here because you want to change the way you look, you’re fed up trying a lot of empty promises in the media and you hope this is the real deal. Or maybe you’ve been yo-yo dieting for years and are now ready to fix your relationship with food and try this sustainable dieting thing by working with a coach or online personal trainer. Or maybe you’re just starting out and I’m your first stop!

Either way I’m flattered. I hope you’ve had a look around, read some of my articles, subscribed to my newsletter and have decided I’m the right person for you. Sounds fantastic!

However, I have a feeling that you’re just going to read this, scroll down, read my client’s reviews, imagine yourself having achieved your goal and leave.

You’re going to close this window and spend days debating with yourself whether investing in you is a good idea at the moment and whether I’m the right coach or online personal trainer for you.

I know, because I’ve done that many times myself. Usually if I have a goal that requires coaching, I hesitate. Because there are so many to choose from and you want to make the perfect choice.

“Lesson No. 1 on overcoming your psychological barriers – there’s no such thing as perfect choice. You can strive for the best choice at this moment considering all the information you hold AT THIS TIME. Perfection in decision making will only result in inaction.”

I offer 2 types of coaching:

In person training

if you’re in Edinburgh, UK and want to learn how to lift weights properly, gain confidence in the gym and truly transform your body by working with a personal trainer, then I’m your gal ūüėČ

Online personal training

if you’re not near me, I can be your online personal trainer. You’d need to have some experience with gyms and lifting though. I’d also require you to film yourself performing exercises so I can assess your individual body mechanics and correct your technique if needs be.

WHAT THE HELL IS PERSONAL TRAINING ANYWAY?

This is you without Victoria

This is you with Victoria

OK. I'M INTERESTED! WHAT DO I GET WHEN I SIGN UP FOR IN-PERSON OR ONLINE PERSONAL TRAINING?

After your initial consultation. I’ll start designing your program and the whole route so to speak, for you to navigate towards your goals.

If you’re an Edinburgh local and want to work in the gym with me then I can set you up on my in-person coaching programme. I work with people from all over, so if you’re not near me, don’t be put off! I can still work with you as an online personal trainer.

Simplicity

You won’t get any fancy apps, illustrations or graphics. I work with straightforward Excel and Word documents. I prefer to keep things simple. I do the groundwork and the guiding you do the hard work. Deal?

You must have a Gmail account for this to work.

Training

Whether you hire me as a 1-2-1 or online personal trainer you’ll receive an exercise program designed for your current level. This will change as you progress in muscular and neural adaptations, technique execution and strength.

Accountability

No matter how good my program is and how motivated you are, adhering to the plan consistently is what’s going to achieve the best results. I regularly check in with both in-person and online clients via voice or video messaging to ensure you stay on track.

Psychology

We are going to dig deep. If you think you have a bad relationship with food, you feel attached to the number on the scale, you sabotage your weight loss progress with food all the time, you feel guilty for eating too much and happy when you’re hungry – we’ve got a problem to solve!

DISCLAIMER: I can do my best to help you, I’ll teach you what I know and how I overcame my self-diagnosed binge eating disorder. However, I’m not a dietitian or an eating disorder specialist. If you have an eating disorder, you must seek professional help.

Nutrition

You won’t see meal plans from me!

I approach nutrition with a long term strategy in mind. Meal plans – can take your mind off diet choices short term, but what are you going to do once you stop getting coaching?

My plan is to work around your existing nutrition habits and tweak them so that you can achieve your goals without needing to change your ways massively.

Counting calories is an easy way to achieve a calorie deficit. However, I work with some of you who have not had the best of time with food. Your relationship with it and numbers is damaged to say the least. We want to heal that relationship first. To do that we need to employ other solutions rather than counting calories.

Sustainability

If I taught you everything you need to know to achieve the best shape of your life, stay healthy and be confident that you can maintain it indefinitely – I’ve done my job!

Right, with that out the way, should we begin?

FAQ

The Basic option will give you a kickstart into lifting. I’ll teach you the correct technique for the big 5 lifts that will target your whole body and build strength. Perfect for a beginner. You’ll then get a program to practice what you’ve learnt for 8 weeks.

If however, you’re after changing your body shape, understand nutrition and your psychology to create lasting sustainable changes, then Curious and Serious are best. If money isn’t an issue – I’d recommend starting with 3 sessions a week (Serious) and reducing to 2 sessions (Curious) after your first 3 months. The biggest perks of these 2 packages are:

  1. A 3 month periodised program (meaning better results, because there is more time to alter training principles, to progress and get stronger) and
  2. Nutrition coaching (if you’re dieting for 3 months you’ll likely run into emotional eating issues that will need to be dealt with to avoid sabotaging your results).

Committed is the package that offers 1 session a week for a month. This package is only available after you’ve completed a 3 month package (Serious/Curious). Purely because 1 session a week will yield subpar results if you’re a beginner or a novice trainee. After the first 3 months of 2-3 sessions a week (Curious/Serious) I’m confident you can train on your own with good form and you’ll only need to come back to me once a week to: check if you’re doing everything right, ask any questions, check-in with your progress, adjust the plan etc. Basically do all the maintenance work and have the reassurance and accountability

I apologise if it’s confusing. Hope this helps:

Basic is a one-off payment for 5 sessions.

Curious and Serious  are packages of 2 sessions a week and 3 sessions a week respectively + all the other perks outlined above. They are to be paid monthly with a minimum commitment of 3 months. Only because 3 months is a minimum amount of time required to see visible results.

After the first 3 months are over, you can continue at a monthly rate of what you paid before minus 10% (e.g. ¬£385 becomes ¬£347). The same applies if you swap plans after 3 months. Whichever plan you move to you’ll pay minus 10% of that plan.

Unless you swap to Committed. This is a monthly plan of 1 session a week and it’s only available after you completed your initial 3 month commitment. There are no discounts for this plan.

If you want to save 10% from the get go and pay for 3 months in full upfront, let me know when you register and I’ll arrange it for you. It’s going to be ¬£1040 upfront for the Curious option and¬† ¬£1423 for the Serious one.

If you choose in-person training then no prior experience is needed. The Basic option is exclusively for beginners and exclusively in person. Curious, Serious and Committed in Person also doesn’t require you to have experience.

If you’re looking for an online personal trainer I need you to have prior lifting experience and be familiar with the gym environment as it’ll be difficult for me to help you do that virtually. Optionally, you can come to see me first for the Basic deal so I can teach you the right technique first, then we can move online for one of the Premium options. You’ll be able to choose whether you want to train online or in-person when you click on ‘Book a Consultation’.

No. For online personal training I need you to have prior lifting experience and be familiar with the gym environment as it’ll be difficult for me to help you do that virtually. The option with the online is to come see me first for the Basic deal so I can teach you the right technique first, then we can move online for the monthly plans.

All training plans offer a free consultation first. To book it, just click on the ‘Book a consultation’, fill in your details and submit. I’ll get back to you as soon as I can. After the consult, it’s your call. If you want to continue I’ll send you my bank details for payment.

I also have Stripe as an online payment provider so you can use that instead. The downside is I’ll have to pay a fee for every transaction and I don’t receive the money until a week later. But let me know if you want to do it this way and I’ll send you a link.

Yes, you get a free consultation with all training plans. I’ll ask you to fill in a questionnaire first, then we’ll meet face to face or via Zoom to discuss your goals and even do a little training taster.

Either. Where you choose to have your consultation is not reflective of the type of training you want. In other words you can opt for an online consult and proceed to buy the in person training or vice versa.

My services are tailored to you and you alone. After your initial consultation we embark on your transformation journey together with all plans and programs personalised for you. The training sessions are also performed 1-2-1. I guarantee that you’ll learn a lot and notice a sizeable change in your strength, energy and how your body feels and looks even after 1 month! Because it’s not a print-out program that I just send out and am completely detached from, because I am physically there with you, I can’t offer a money back guarantee. See refund policy for more.

You can decide to stop training anytime.
If you enrolled in a monthly payment and decided to stop after the first month, that’s absolutely fine. I won’t take any more payments from you.
If you purchased the Curious, Serious or Committed option and are half way through the month and want to stop, I can arrange a refund of the session price only at ¬£40 per session. e.g. if you’ve got 5 unused sessions, I’ll refund you ¬£200. This doesn’t apply for the sessions you carried over from previous months.

If you purchased the Basic option it’s non-refundable. It is transferable though.

If you can’t attend your consultation or a session, please advise me as soon as possible and at least 24h before your appointment. If you cancel a training session less than 6 hrs before, unfortunately the session will be lost. Thank you.

If however, you’re after changing your body shape, understand nutrition and your psychology to create lasting sustainble changes, then premium is best. I’d recommend starting with 3 sessions a week and reducing to 2 sessions after your first 3 months.

Yes. For the Premium option, you can pay monthy. However, it is 5-10% cheaper to pay the whole lot. The Basic option only accepts the payment in full.

If you don’t choose Online training then no. The Basic option is exclusively for beginners. Premium In Person also doesn’t require you to have experience. For the Online training I¬† need you to have prior lifitng experience and be familiar with the gym environment as it’ll be difficult for me to help you do that virtually. The option with the online is to come see me first for the Basic deal so I can teach you the right technique first, then we can move online for the Premium option.
