David T Fitness Story

“It was actually starting to train for the Edinburgh Marathon that made me realise I really needed to get fit. At first I struggled to run a mile without stopping and being out of breath.

My general fitness had gone downhill after having my daughter in November 2016. Until then I’d used a local gym, just doing the usual resistance machines and dumbbell curls, but I had no idea what I was doing and I did the same thing every night. Even that stopped once the baby arrived though.

“My main aim when I started training was to lose weight, tone up, get fit and become more mobile. I’d followed Peter from a previous gym. He had trained me but due to being a electrician running my own business and my father falling ill something had to give and it was the gym.

“As a Personal Trainer there’s obviously always an expectation that you’ll have a high standard of fitness. However, we don’t all train all day every day and we don’t all eat our meals out of tupperware boxes, never allowing ourselves to overindulge in unhealthy treats.

We also very rarely get asked about why we got into fitness, with people often assuming we got into the profession while training for other sports, trying to ‘get big’ or in pursuit of the perfect shirtless Instagram post.

Truth is, I got into fitness because I learned very early on that life is short.

“I was very health conscious in my teens and early 20s and I played a lot of sport to quite high levels when I was at school and university. 

However, this gradually got less and less as my career started to take priority. Running a number of companies having been in IT for many years, my work has always involved a lot of travelling and meeting/ office based work on a laptop. I had also faced some longer standing issues with knees, hips and lower back from old sports injuries, none of which had recovered properly or been helped by my working lifestyle.

When I initially started training at Perform I believed I was just signing up to lose a bit of weight and get a bit fitter. However, looking back it was actually much more than that.

Perform Fitness Family Alex G's Fitness Story

Honestly, I’d never set foot in a gym until 2015. I joined Perform properly at the start of 2018 as a way of building on work I had already done to lose eight stone. Before then walking had been my main form of exercise.

I later joined another gym and did one session a week, as a way of keeping the weight off and ensuring I didn’t get complacent. Although I had made progress I still felt tired and miserable a lot of the time, so I decided to start training properly. I wanted to push myself a little harder and find support from like-minded people.

My Fitness Story Laura F

There were a few moments that made me realise I needed to start exercising. My stressful job as a teacher was consuming my life. Exercise was always recommended because it provides an outlet and releases endorphins, but I found it hard to fit in around work.
