Personal Trainer Glasgow Charing Cross

1-1 Personal Training

This is a popular choice for beginners in the gym who want to learn the fundamentals. Often the more experienced go for this option to work on specific technique points or for an individualised plan.

Group Training

This is fantastic for those who want to work out with friends or simply want to save a bit of money and work in a group environment. Expect to feel motivated and high energy!

1-2 Training

Do you want to start of your journey to fitness with a friend? One-to-two personal training still has a individual touch, plus you get to enjoy your workouts with a friend a cut down the cost from one-to-one. 

Online Training

Been at the gym for a while but still haven’t seen the results you want?

Sometimes all you need is an extra push and someone to stay accountable to. A lot of the time we fall into the trap of FAD diets and quick fixes to try and achieve our goals. The principle of weight loss and muscle gain is so simple, yet can be so difficult to achieve. 

Why not try online training?

With personalised gym and home workout guides alongside nutritional advice, you could be well on your way to getting your summer body this year. 


The programmes I write for you will always be 4-week programmes. This will be so that you do not get bored of your programme and we are constantly switching it up to keep your body changing. Alongside the programmes you will receive your calories and macronutrients, alongside a mini recipe book.  


When you enrol in Online Personal Training, one of the benefits you get from it is a weekly check-in. Accountability is key when you are getting results, and therefore, every week you will check back in with me and let me know how you got on with your training, diet and lifestyle. This is where we can discuss whether there’s anything you like or dislike and we can adjust your programme accordingly. 


You will also be entitled to a 20 minute phone call or Skype call which we will book in at the start of every week when it suits you. This again will help with accountability and it will help me to make sure your programme and nutrition is working for you.

Concerned about appearance?

Are you unhappy with the way you look? Following a structured programme from a female trainer can not only transform the way you look, but more importantly, the way you feel about yourself.

Want to lose fat?

Your main goal might simply be to lose fat, and that’s ok. This is completely achievable, no matter what your starting point, with a few tweaks to your current lifestyle.

Want to gain muscle and strength?

If you want to gain size and improve your strength, you need well structured personal training and macronutrient plan. It can be confusing with so many ‘magic’ diets out there. I stick to science and results.

Need to get fitter?

Maybe you have a sporting event coming up which requires a certain level of fitness. A tailored plan will see you all the way through to the finish line. 

Holiday coming up?

Preparing for a holiday needs to be a planned process in order to maximise and sustain your results. You can feel happy and confident in yourself while learning the fundamentals of training and nutrition.

Low motivation?

One of the main reasons people struggle to motivate themselves is lack of accountability. Many people use a personal trainer simply to keep them on track. 

Strong body, strong mind

As a Glasgow personal trainer, people naturally come to me to help them achieve their goals. Often it’s fat loss, or how to put on muscle and gain strength. Whatever your goal, my results driven attitude will guide you. Book a free consultation and let’s see how we can start seeing progress. 

If you train hard, you’ll not only be hard, you’ll
be hard to beat.

Fat Loss

With a female personal trainer in Glasgow, strength training has so many benefits for the body and therefore will be at the core of your training programme. Strength training is so beneficial for many reasons. It will help to strengthen up your joints and bones, which is very helpful as you get older.

But most importantly, if your goals are losing fat or building muscle, you will continue to shock your body week by week. Strength training allows you to push the boundaries of what you are used to session by session, which will force your body to adapt and change which will take you closer to your goals.

Many women at first are hesitant to focus on building strength because they are scared it will result in a bulky physique. The truth is, strength goes a long way to helping you lose fat in a sustainable way. From consistent strength training, you will see the key areas of your body starting to tone up. It’s actually very hard for ladies to become ‘too bulky’ and would require unbelievable dedication over many years.

Fat loss is a long game, and it’s important to realise this from a personal trainer Glasgow. Fad diets lead to yoyo dieting; losing weight for a couple of months then piling back on, then doing the same again. Taking a slow, steady approach will allow you to lose the weight over a longer period of time and keep it off. This can be achieved by making small changes biweekly to make your diet and lifestyle healthier but sustainable.

In the fitness industry, there is currently an obsession with body building and creating the perfect physique. For many people the lifestyle it requires to get a body like the ones you see on Instagram is simply unachievable. I believe that its just as important to build confidence and happiness from within as it is to build the physique you want. I will give you training sessions and a programme that is challenging yet satisfying for you to complete. This will help to build your confidence in yourself and allow you to see changes weekly (whether it be your physique or the weights you are lifting).

They key to effectively losing fat isn’t so much in the tactics or exercises you will learn, but more of a shift in mindset. Try to be patient and view the process without and ‘end point’. It can be hard to look at losing fat this way, especially if you’re currently unhappy with the way you look. If you trust the process and take small, consistent steps forward then you’ll be in a much better position to not only look great, but feel happy with your results.

It’s important to love what you do, as it changes the perception from having to do something to wanting to do it. I’m my Glasgow personal training sessions, I try to steer away from super quick results, and focus changes which will be more sustainable. You should make sure you have balance within your life, and you are doing what you enjoy. If you live a strictly healthy life, it can be hard to enjoy moments with loved ones without feeling guilt. Everyone can enjoy meals out, holidays and lazy days without feeling bad about it, you simply need to adopt some balance into your life.

The problem with hard and fast diets isn’t that they won’t work quickly, but more so that they are not usually sustainable. Why is this? In one respect, being so hard on yourself with food will only make you crave more and want what you can’t have. The other aspect is that when you hit your ‘end point’, say that’s a 12 week fat loss programme, then you are far more likely to revert back to old habits. Instead, you should aim to make minor adjustments to your diet and nutrition for the best results in the gym.

Personal Training Glasgow

One of the most important aspects of going to fitness classes in Glasgow is feeling confident and comfortable. You need to feel in control of what you are doing, as it is easy to be disheartened if you feel like people are watching or judging you, especially as a female. This is why I put a huge focus on making sure that you have a good technique in my exercise classes Glasgow, so that when you are to train on your own, you can feel happy and confident that you know what you are doing. I will run through a variety of strength building exercises for your whole body so that you can always have a choice in your training, and keep it fun and different.

  • Iona is AMAZING! From day one she was welcoming, made me feel comfortable and is very motivational! She listens to what you are wanting to achieve by having a PT and makes your plan specific to this! She is tough… I have begged and pleaded with her to let me do less reps, but it is so worth it and in the end is that not why you want a PT, to give you that much needed boost?!

    Iona gets to know you so it feels like you’re working out with a friend and despite having jelly legs, pouring with sweat and feeling like you’re going to vomit there isn’t a session that I’ve had with her that hasn’t had me in hysterics and I can honestly say I look forward to going to the gym now! Iona, you are fabulous, thank you!

    Camille Becks-Phelps
  • I’ve been training with Iona 1:1 since November 2017 and I cannot recommend her highly enough! I’ve gained so much confidence in the gym and within myself- I now see in the mirror what other people see…this is all thanks to Iona’s constant guidance and reassurance in and out of the gym, she’s always just a text away even on her days off.

    I always enjoy our sessions (even when my legs are on fire!!!) as Iona teaches you why you are doing a move; unlike a lot of PTs where you’re just doing what they tell you for the sake of it… I always feel comfortable to ask Iona any questions, no matter how silly they may seem.

    The difference in my physique and mindset is amazing- Iona has made a tailored plan that works for me and is more than maintainable- and I can’t wait to keep progressing!! Thank you Iona!

    Riona McDonald
  • I’ve been with Iona about eight months now and wouldn’t look back. She has helped me love weights and feel confident when in the gym by myself. She pushes you hard and sees your potential that you don’t know you have. The progress in my strength is a great confident boost and just spurs me on to get more PBs. Her friendly and fun attitude will put anyone at ease coming into a gym environment- from beginners to more experienced. X

    Laura Anderson
  • I have trained with Iona for 3/4 months and I cannot recommend her enough. Her sessions are definitely challenging but she tailored them to what I enjoyed and they were something I looked forward to. I have gained so much confidence with heavy weights and now that I am moving away from Glasgow I am so excited to follow her program on my own as I feel confident enough in the gym to do so. My progress has been ridiculously fast in both changes to my physique and gains in strength. Not only is Iona an amazing trainer but she is also such a great person and keeps you motivated throughout your work outs. If you are looking for a PT in Glasgow I cannot recommend Iona highly enough!!

    Laura Cavenagh
  • Could not recommend Iona more, no other PT could so brilliantly combine pushing me to my limits (despite my moaning), top notch chat and motivation both in our sessions and outwith in making fitness and nutrition plans! 10/10 hero x

    Alastair Wilson
  • Iona has transformed the way I view personal fitness and myself. I enrolled in a few of Iona’s lifting programmes to get fit for my wedding, but in doing so, and with her constant encouragement, discovered a passion to keep pushing those PB’s. Iona’s constant energy and encouragement brings our groups together, and through her expertise my fitness has improved to levels I didn’t think I could possibly achieve. I can’t thank her enough and would encourage anyone who is thinking about a beginning a training programme to try some sessions with Iona.

    Natalia Timchenko
  • I was wanting to gain power and strength after coming back from an injury for rugby. Iona helped me with proper technique on my back squats allowing me to increase the weight effectively and also put me through tough circuits that I would not have managed to do without the encouragement.

  • Working with Iona has been an absolute pleasure. She is a fantastic PT. From the outset she makes you feel comfortable and relaxed, regardless of your fitness level. I was nervous about starting personal training but within the first minute of our session I was having fun! She pushes you just the right amount so after each session you feel like you have truly achieved something. She is also a warm and caring person, so you will feel like you have known her for ages. This really helped me, especially as I was very out of my comfort zone in the gym. It put me hugely at ease.
    I cannot recommend Iona highly enough!

  • Four months ago I was a dedicated couch potato and believed I’d stay that way. Iona has been one of the most important influences in my transition from couch potato to regular gym attendee. Warm and welcoming from the start and always willing to go the extra mile to ensure I enjoy myself, Iona is incredibly driven and very talented at what she does. Her Ladies Lifting classes are now the highlight of my week and a great workout as well as a source of support. Our PT sessions have always given me something new to strive for and are perfectly tailored for my needs. I’ve also recently been attending the Pure Loser course and Iona has shone as a teacher there too. Would highly recommend Iona to anyone attending the gym, both experienced and beginner!

    Laura Neil
  • Working with Iona has brought me a renewed sense of motivation and is turning my running dreams into realities! She is a star!
    The past 3 months have simply flown by. In that time I have become stronger, fitter, healthier, more confident in myself and in my fitness to run, and ultimately happier!
    Once an injured runner; now I am a recovering, smarter, leaner runner. Goals that were once just dreams (inc. finishing the West Highland Way Race this June) are closer now to becoming a reality than I could have imagined just three months ago.
    Iona has given me the knowledge and the accountability that were missing from my training. Her PT sessions are never dull and whilst there is never any gain without first a little pain, there are plenty of laughs along the way! Her Wednesday morning Spin class is the perfect start to your day, but be warned, don’t expect to skip a class and get away with it!
    If you’re still reading this review, seriously, what are you waiting for!?
    Iona is the PT you have been searching for!

  • Iona has managed to turn me into the person I never thought I would be… someone who enjoys the gym. She’s positive, supportive and always enthusiastic. She’s given me confidence in my ability and self; the difference I’ve seen/others have seen in just 2 months is definitely worth the pain. Although I moan continuously throughout my sessions, I genuinely love them and can’t wait to get fitter. THANK YOU 🙂

    Jess Sweetenham
  • Could not recommend Iona more as a PT, she is amazing!! Been going to her for 2months now and she has totally changed my outlook on fitness and made me so motivated and determined to achieve my goals! ��

    Vikki McDonald
  • I loved having Iona as my pt, she really helped me regain my fitness and develop my strength and technique to lift weights comfortably on my own in the gym. If I didn’t have to move to Sheffield I would never have had let her go! Would strongly recommend her to anyone for personal training she has a strong knowledge of what she is training and gives great advice. She is great chat in the gym if you want a giggle or 5. Makes exercising that bit more fun and definitely challenging!

    Hayley Sim
  • I starting personal training with Iona after attending her Ladies Lifting classes. She has really helped me improve my form and pushes me to lift heavier and do more reps. I feel stronger and fitter and look forward to our sessions every week.

  • Hey just wanted to say how great it is training with Iona and her Ladies Lifting class. Always an enjoyable hour in the gym! Either as a gym newbie or if you have gym experience, there is something Iona can show you. Not only her classes…but she is always there to offer any support or guidance you might need. I am seeing results and excited for what is to come. Thanks Iona x

  • I’ve been to Iona’s classes & had 1:1 sessions with her, I really can’t put into words how caring, informative, kind & professional this girl is! I’ve learned so much from her which has improved my workouts loads & her recipes are amazing too. (Protein balls especially)

    Denise Barr
  • I could not recommend Iona any more highly as a personal trainer and motivator for group activities. I attended her Booty Camp training sessions in March and thoroughly enjoyed every moment (even the dead mills…….). These group sessions were an amazing introduction to the gym and perfect for those who are looking to improve their fitness and target the legs and glutes. Iona taught me so much about the gym and my body and gave me the confidence to do things at the gym that I would never have thought I could accomplish. The individual personal training and the group sessions are excellent value for money and executed with extreme professionalism and a personal touch. Iona is great!!!

    Rhona Williams
  • Just had my first two weeks of independent training after moving away from Glasgow and am honestly so grateful to Iona. Without the 1:1 training, motivation and teaching, I would not have a clue what I am doing and would still be wondering around aimlessly and lacking the confidence to train on my own, particularly in the dreaded weights area of the gym. I highly recommend Iona to anyone looking to not only lose weight/get fit, but also to increase confidence and find the motivation you need to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Iona has a real talent for tailoring training to your needs rather than just adopting a generic approach with everyone. You are missed massively, though I can say I will definitely be back when I am back home!

    Lauren Aimee
  • I started training with Iona in a bid to lose some of the stubborn fat around my middle and generally tone up. What I have achieved with Iona’s help is more than this.
    My overall strength and fitness has improved so much in a short space of time and I am able to perform exercises I would never have attempted on my own. Each workout is tailored to you, so you can achieve exactly what you have discussed.
    I have learnt so much from Iona, she is fantastic at sharing her expert knowledge and answers any questions you come up with. Her tips on nutrition are excellent and her dedication is clear.
    Iona is energetic, fun, committed and inspirational…and I can’t recommend her enough! X

    Mairi McCann
  • Another top rating from me! Iona is an inspirational trainer and is so encouraging and helpful in technique guidance. She is always supportive and will make you work as hard as your goals will allow!

    Ann Campbell
  • I’ve been part of Iona’s ladies lifting class for over a year now and she has played a key role in my progress with weight training. Iona is incredibly knowledgeable and always makes training fun ( even lunges which I HATE). Iona always replies to my random texts about progress and what to do, and will often check in if she sees me at the gym even though she’s not training me 1:1. Absolutely love how far I’ve come thanks to Iona and will continue to do so. Highly recommend Her for any training and a laugh while you do it! Xx
