Arland has carefully designed an exercise programme focused on helping me overcome many years of neck and shoulder problems. Through this tailored programme he’s fundamentally transformed my fitness, flexibility and stamina; every session is different, centred on my needs and with the added bonus of it being delivered in a fun way! Absolutely recommend - 100%! More...

Managed to find Arland on Bark about 12 weeks ago, best find ever! I have had 10 weeks worth of sessions with him and what a difference I've seen in myself! First step was figuring out what I needed from the sessions and what my goals were, from then on Arland gave all the advice he could and supported me with my meal choices and my exercises without flaw. I could not fault him for his professionalism, friendly attitude and his willingness to push me to my limit even though I'm swearing at him.I've had to give up the sessions for now due to a change in personal circumstances but I know I won't be away forever.Everything Arland does is geared to you and what you want out of his sessions and he is quite willing to tell you if he is not the right person for you. Fortunately, for me, he was and I'm over the moon with the results. My upper body and core strength has improved past what I could imagine and this is only the beginning. Just got to stick to my plans now!Thank you so much Arland! You will be seeing me again! More...

Arland took me on as a client when I was looking to increase my general fitness but, shortly afterwards, I had a skiing accident resulting in very limited movement. Arland has been fantastic - totally professional with the restricted amount of exercises that I can do and extremely motivational and positive when dealing with a frustrated client! I would highly recommend Arland and am much looking forward to increasing the range of training that I can do with him as my mobility improves. More...

Fantastic workouts and food plans, great combination to get you started, no fuddy diets just a good food plan with normal everyday food!! Didn't take me long to become very committed to Arlands sessions, was also given workout plans to do in the gym...massive bonus. Nothing is too much trouble for Arland, he's open and very honest about goals and what to expect from yourself, he gets the best out of you through encouragement and knows when he can push you for a little bit more..even when you think you can't! Always available for questions and support, responds quickly. More...

14st(2lb) to 12st9lbs in 10 weeks in order to prepare for my London - Dublin bike ride. Whatever your fitness goal is, Arland is completely driven to you achieving that result. Sessions vary every week to keep it fresh but always pushing you that bit further than the week before. Highly recommended. More...

I was looking for a Personal Trainer to lose some weight, get fitter and feel healthier both mentally and physically. Arland really knows his stuff! He listened to my needs, and developed a comprehensive plan to help me, including meal plans and PT sessions twice a week. He is very knowledgeable and provided lots of very good advice. I would definitely recommend working with him to anyone! More...

Arland has shown me over the past few months the weath of knowledge he has both in the practical side of excerice and nutrition. He has helped me develop my gym work and provided me with all the nutrition advice I need which I lacked before. His programs are unique to each individual based on their personal goals and he’s sessions are fun and different each time. I strongly recommend Arland if you are looking for a PT. More...

Having now worked with Arland for 2 months and losing over 10kg during that time, I think the results speak for themselves. With varied sessions, tailored to your own specific goals and needs, it never feels like a chore to train. Arland is extremely flexible in approach and will always find time to ensure your training sessions fit in with your own life and routine which is such a huge plus when trying to find time with hectic work schedules.

Have been working with Arland for the past 6 weeks. He is fabulous; he makes the workouts interesting and he drives me to achieve the best from myself. It has been hard work but I have lost 2" from my tummy and 1.5" from my bottom in a relatively short space of time. I will be renewing my membership and would urge anyone reading this who wants to get fitter to give Arland a call. More...

Arland has been absolutley fantastic since I decided to change my lifestyle and start training. Personally I needed motivation to keep going when the times are tough and since training with Arland I feel motivated before during and after every session and even after the most grueling exercise you leave feeling like you have a spring in your step! Thoroughly recommended!

Q&A

I take the time to get to know my clients and understand their needs. I provide the knowledge and means to implement an effective exercise program that is specific to the client and their goals.I offer advice on healthy eating and lifestyle choices. I constantly reflect on my own methods to ensure that the training I prescribe is of the highest standard. I act as a motivator both during sessions and the rest of the time by sending emails and posting on social media. I respond to any queries a client my have in a timely fashion.

I am always honest with my clients and there's no escaping the fact that hard work and dedication are the key requirements to losing weight and getting fitter. If you're willing to put the hard work in then anything is possible and you can achieve things you didn't think were possible. The second part is to know what you're doing when it comes to training and diet and that is where I come in. Understanding how your body works and knowing how to generate change are key and that is why working with a qualified professional will always give you an advantage.

I am passionate about the health and fitness industry and love helping people achieve positive results.

I have a keen interest in sport and exercise science and would love the opportunity apply the knowledge I have developed throughout my university education to a full time career. I have an extremely motivated, determined and results driven mentality to my work and take pride in my ability to provide an outstanding service. Finally, I am motivated to be self-employed and create a successful business that I can be proud of.

As well as being a Level 3 qualified Personal Trainer, I have an undergraduate degree in Sports Sciences and a postgraduate degree in Strength and Conditioning. I have experience working with professional athletes as well as the general public to achieve all manner of fitness and health related goals. My motto 'you don't have to be a pro to train like a pro' so regardless of your current fitness level you will get the best, most innovative training there is.
