Description & Services
Highlander Strength and Fitness is located in New Minas, and offers expert fitness coaching for anyone looking to improve their health and wellbeing. We are not a gym; all sessions are coached in small group personal training sessions so you are never on your own and you will get the most out of your time training. 
About the coach: 
I have been involved in sports and fitness from a very young age, and I am passionate about the subject. I think the fitness industry likes to promote myths - 'trendy' ways of training that won't get you to your goals fast. For me, everyone deserves what is proven as the best training, not just what's in fashion. 
If you're going to give up your time and effort to fitness training, you deserve to get the best. Why pay a lot to be trained by someone who has completed a few generic short courses, when you can get the benefit of my training and expertise for a lot less! You won't find a more qualified trainer in New Minas. 
My qualifications: 
BSc Sports Studies (Stirling University) 
MPhil Sports Studies (Stirling University) 
Consultant, Scottish Institute of Sport 
UK Sport Fast Track Practitioner Program 
CSCS (Certified Strength and Conditioning Coach), NSCA 
British Champion, UK University American Football

25 years sports experience
