I am not a PT instructor, nor am I Mr Olympia. What I am is a gym goer. Ruth and I have built this gym with gym goers in mind, people like you and me. We hope you enjoy training here as much as we have enjoyed building it, thank you and love lifting.
I love being around people and I'm passionate about helping others to reach their goals, I am a qualified naturopathic nutritionist and trainee life coach. I am a self confessed lover of resistance training and lifting weights, yoga and pilates.
I have been a qualified PT since June 2017. I work at Silverback full time and thoroughly enjoy every moment. I am gradually building up experience with both my PT clients and my own training. I compete in Scottish power-lifting, which is something I am ridiculously passionate about. I love everything that comes with PTing, especially seeing others grow with confidence in the gym!
I have been working in Silverback Gym for the last 18 months as a personal trainer. I have gained a vast amount of experience, working with a range of different clients, all pursuing different goals ranging from strength and size building and wait loss.
My main passion lies with strength and strength sport, mainly power lifting. I currently compete and coach a team of lifter from Silverback. I have coached lifters to multiple Scottish records in the last year and will be pursuing more in the coming year.
As a PT my main aim is to help clients learn safe and effective training methods, build confidence in the gym and achieve their goals while having fun in the process!
I first started competing in Strongman in 2014 at the Scottish event and came in 5th place. Since then I’ve had a bug for this sport and have placed highly in top competitions including UK strongest man 2015 where I came 3rd and 5th in 2016. I am SSM 2nd UK strongest junior and 2014/15 Highlands strongest man 2014. Britain Elite Strongest joint 1st.
Every year I hope to keep improving and to get more and more people involved in this sport. I am really excited to be able to share my passion for strength/strongman training at Silverbacks and look forward to encourage our members to train safely and improve every day.
