Personal Training For Weight Loss


Our expert Personal Trainers have a wealth of experience in creating diet and exercise plans to help you shed the pounds.

We'll get to know you, your current diet and what gets you motivated, to ensure we create a workout programme you'll enjoy sticking to. It shouldn't be a chore... we want you to be just as excited about your weight loss journey as we are!

Our personal trainers will design a nutritious eating plan, which combined with an effective exercise programme will help you to burn the calories and torch excess body fat. 


Avoid trawling the internet for 'proven weight loss diet plans' or 'diets for weight loss in 7 days'. Losing weight through nutrition is a long term thing. You can't expect to eat lettuce for a week and drop three dress sizes. If you do... you'll pile it back on as soon as you start eating normally. 

Our personal trainers will give you solid, credible advice on nutrition, to ensure you're making the right choices in your quest to lose weight.

"We don't do diet plans. Only a nutritionist or dietician with a degree can give someone a diet plan. If a personal trainer claims to offer diet plans, avoid! What we can do is give guidelines on what you should and shouldn’t be eating, and assist you in tracking your calories to ensure your weight loss plan produces results." (Jane - Personal Trainer at Village Gym Edinburgh)

As a guide, in order to lose weight, your diet should always be based around a protein source (lean meat, red meat, fish etc.) and then carbs to bulk up the meal (vegetables, pasta, rice etc.) It should include some good fat sources (olive oil, coconut oil, fat on meat). A plate should be 40% carbs, 30% protein and 30% fats.

"Avoid crazy crash diets. Lose the weight healthily. Speak to a Personal Trainer for advice, and try to cut out the rubbish in your diet little by little. Do not try to change everything at once as this will make it so much harder than it needs to be." (Sam - Personal Trainer at Village Gym Aberdeen)


During your first session with one of our Personal Trainers, we'll spend some time getting to know how much weight you plan to lose, what gets you motivated and how fit you currently are.

We'll ask you to perform a series of basic exercises to assess your fitness levels. This will allow us to create an individual workout programme that will help you achieve your weight loss goals.

We'll look at how much time you have to dedicate to your trainingand how you can fit in personal training sessions around your every day life. This way, we can work towards achieving a healthy weight within a realistic timeframe. 

Your personal trainer will devise an exercise plan that focuses on blitzing calories, getting your heart pumping and torching calories.

As you continue to become leaner, we'll adapt your fitness plan to ensure the results keep coming.
