| GB Fitness Master Trainers|
Trainers’ are to be the very best of GB Fitness
trainers with skills in client appraisal, assessment procedures, program
setting and training for many disciplines and goals, nutritional advice and
presentation skills. As such all positions are by invite only, and
pre-requisite for selection includes having completed the Advanced Gym
Instructors course, the Advanced Personal Trainers course, the Diploma in
Advanced Nutrition for Optimum Health and well as additional personal
skills. The aim of this group of highly skilled and articulate professionals
is to inspire and motivate, to educate and progress this industry that is
sadly being saturated by ‘quick-fix’ staff that do not lead us into the
future of health … our mission here at GB Fitness is a holistic approach to
advancing mind, body and ‘self’ potential.
GB Fitness Master Trainer
I have been successfully running
my own Personal Training and Nutrition Advice business for the last 12
months and am now honoured to be the only GB Fitness Master Trainer in
Scotland. All of this has been achieved while holding down a full time
job. I can therefore identify with and relate to the busy and demanding
lifestyles that my clients lead.
My clients vary from life time
couch potatoes to competitive body builders. I believe that the
assistance that I provide to people is over and above that provided by
most personal trainers. My consultations are fully personalised to the
client and include a full support service for the days between
consultations. Coming from a pharmaceutical background also means that
I have a wide knowledge of illness, medication and its side effects.
This therefore is also taken into consideration when construction a
Personal Fitness/Nutrition Plan.
Based in the Falkirk area of
Central Scotland I travel up to 30 miles for consultations with
clients. This can be in their own home, at a convenient gym or weather
permitting, at the local park.
Using a technique known as
bio-electrical impedence (Bodystat analysis) all clients have their body
composition measured to assess their fat, muscle and fluid levels.
Along with a full medical and exercise history this allows us to set
measurable/achievable objectives to meet their personal goals. Plans
involve guidance on nutrition, supplementation, exercise: types,
intensity, duration and frequency. All with some motivation/nagging
thrown in for good measure, of course! However, it is also about
providing the individual with the knowledge to make their own
choices/decisions regarding “diet” and lifestyle, between sessions.
Good nutrition and fitness are
essential for a long and healthy life. The service I provide will help
you achieve your personal fitness goals as the photos and testimonials
from current clients will affirm.

CPD For The Total Instructor
Motivating the Motivator – 2 day Course
Increasing client base is always an area of contention
for some very skilled and knowledgeable instructors and
Personal Trainers. This is often more a case for good
marketing and ideally for best efficacy, referrals from
those you have already helped to create marked and
lasting changes in the lives. Essentially and very
strictly ‘proof of the pudding (not that we at GB
Fitness endorse puddings!!!)…’ etc.
GB Pilates - 2 Day Course
The two day
Pilates CPD course is for qualified instructors/personal
trainers and group exercise teachers. The aim is for
these Fitness Professionals to have a thorough working
knowledge (theory and skills) of a small range of key
Pilates Mat work moves. Most clients want to do some
maintenance at home. The anatomical clarity, ease and
benefit of these vital moves enables your client’s to
align, strengthen and assist themselves in their
training goals. Because Core Stability is at the heart
of Pilates work your client’s building blocks of
training goals stand on firmer foundations. The
rehabilitative and realignment aspects of the model are
a perfect compliment to any training programme that has
intense fitness or sporting goals. The ease and lack of
equipment adds to the attraction to learning to teach
these basic moves well. You will not be a fully
qualified Pilates Instructor but will find you can
safely add these moves in on your client programme and
expand your ability to grow in a different teaching
style which will boost your confidence and motivate you
to be creative with your client programmes. You will be
gaining 16 CPD points.
Motivating the Motivator
Want to feel more
motivated to achieve your own professional and personal
goals? Like the thought of being inspired and being in
flow? Imagine how this impacts on your client’s world!
We can only give what we’ve got. If you know you run on
empty sometimes and feel like you’d like to find ways of
maintaining your inspirational flow and keep motivated
to complete the goals you set then over the two day
period you’ll gain a psychological insight into ‘where
you are now’ where you want to go and the benefit this
will have on client’s experience of your time with
them. Also, learn methods to deal with the complexities
you face at times with client expectations and
boundaries on your time and space for a work life
balance difficult to strike at times because of the
hours the industry demands. Up dated knowledge and
changes worth knowing about from the fields of training
methods and nutrition are also explored. You will be
gaining 16 CPD points.

Cardio Choreography for the Instructor
With the Les
Mill’s successful ‘BTS’ Body Training system programmes
many class based instructors now find they have the
creative work done for them. The actual planning,
balancing and structuring of material is
pre-prescribed. Freestyle, self engineered material is
making a comeback as some centres and clubs decide to
not continue with prescriptive classes. An instructor
may increasingly need to become independent and
autonomous in producing their own work. This will mean
being able to pull together material aerobic moves,
dance genres and basic strength and sculpt based moves
to produce interesting and fun classes. The actual
choreography of such material is not that hard. Music is
a great motivator and source of inspiration for you and
your class and must not be under estimated. On this
two day GB Choreography for the Instructor you will

and motivate by the magic tool you have called the

Master Trainer - MATTHEW GUNN
Greater Manchester and Cheshire
"Health and fitness has always played an important role in my
life. Throughout my teens I swam competitively and scuba dived
recreationally, eventually becoming a Padi Instructor. This gave
me the opportunity to travel and work abroad, instructing in
Australia and East Africa. I relished the challenge and
satisfaction gained from teaching new divers and the
responsibilities faced when leading teams of experienced scuba
enthusiasts on more adventurous dives.
On my return to the UK I decided
to further my life long interest in exercise and healthy
living by becoming a personal trainer and nutrition advisor. My
training with GB Fitness and seven years
of personal experience has put me in an excellent position to
train, advise and motivate my clients.
work as a GB Fitness Master Trainer
covering the Greater Manchester and Cheshire
area. I am based at a gym in the city centre of Manchester but
will also travel to your home or gym to suit you.
working with new clients, initially I carry out a comprehensive
consultation, this includes a health check, body stat analysis
and discussion covering your goals and ambitions, nutritional
practices and exercise regime. This process insures that I am
aware of the complete picture and am able to tailor an
individual exercise, nutrition and supplementation plan with
your requirements in mind.
Whatever your goals, be they to loose fat and tone up, increase
strength and muscle size, sports specific training or just to
get fit and have fun, I can help you to achieve them.
have recently started to work with local businesses and councils
offering health checks, lifestyle, exercise and nutrition advice
to employees. I do not believe in a one size fits all mentality
when devising programmes or nutrition plans and constantly
update my knowledge base to keep things fresh and interesting.
you are struggling to make progress, feel that your training is
getting a little stale or you are looking to take the plunge for
the first time and make some big changes I will provide you
with everything you need to make it happen. I offer a complete,
service that doesn't just end when you walk out of the gym".
