Allan helped massively with my training centred around functional strength for combat sports. His knowledge and attitude towards his clients puts him a cut above the rest.Would highly recommend!

I would fully recommend Allan if you're looking for a coach to help your training goals. He listened to my preferences and worked with me to build a training schedule I enjoy and still follow today. Two thumbs up!

I have to admit, I was always skeptical about training with a PT. I never thought it would be any different to training myself but I definitely retract that opinion now. Allan caters to each clients goals and I think that's what helped me most. He supported me to gain the confidence, that I previously never had, to go and work out in the weights area of the gym. It can be absolutely nerve-racking to work out when you're not entirely sure of what you're doing but Allan gave me the push to overcome those fears as well as the knowledge to actually train properly. I can honestly say I'm more confident and more competent with my training in the gym! Can't thank you enough Allan! More...

I’ve been working with Strength Coach Glasgow for nearly a year and have seen huge progression in my strength training. Allan has the ability to build a program that works on your technical and fitness foundations, before developing a diverse structure that incorporates a variety of Olympic lifts .Allan will push you to your limits in coaching sessions but never beyond the realm of safety. It’s worth noting as well that there is no ego with Allan. What you see is what you get.Whatever your sporting or fitness goals, I highly recommend you work with Strength Coach Glasgow! More...

Does anyone REALLY read reviews? Well you should. I’ve read every one of Allan’s before writing my own one to add to his others. Team up with Allan and you’ll give your body and mind the best exercise and training possible.I’m approaching mid-50’s, I know, I don’t look it, ;-)I am self-employed running a busy, wealth management and financial advisory business and can easily sit in my chair for 10 hours at a time, and this has been the case for years.This, clearly, was only going to have ONE outcome and not a good one. So, in April/May of 2018 I started looking around to find a PT.Friends recommended their PTs or Fitness Instructors and also, their Classes but I didn’t see anything about any of them that made them STAND OUT.I found Allan via Instagram and started messaging him saying I felt humbled by his qualifications and was convinced I would be way below the standard of person or type of client he’d want to train. I was wrong.Since starting with Allan, I look better, I feel stronger, I have a stronger mind, I am writing more business than I have before, ever.With his quiet but encouraging approach you are left with NO illusions that he really DOES care. He’s a professional. He’s a champion weightlifter. He trains OTHER personal trainers! That itself is the best review possible.Why use the rest, when you can have the best.Do yourself, your mind and your body a favour and contact him. You will be so glad you did. I am. More...

Allan was very knowledgable about all weightlifting movements and gave good clearly understandable advice on technique. The programming worked well and resulted in strength & technique gains.

I started training with Allan around 6 months ago after attending a couple of his specialised workshops - I found these very helpful straight away for improving my technique in the lifts covered in these workshops. I had started to learn a little Olympic lifting last year and was looking to get back into it, so after attending these workshops, I was confident Allan was going to be a great coach for me.Since then I have improved both my snatch and clean & jerk technique and find both lifts a lot easier to execute than I did before (which I am amazed at as I always thought I was pretty rubbish at them!) Allan’s tips and tweaks in my technique has also given me the confidence to train these lifts on my own, which I was always scared to do before!Allan’s Strength Coach Glasgow app is also awesome for tracking your progress and motivating you to do better than you did the week before and it’s great to always have a plan when you walk into the gym to do your session (something I always struggled to make up on my own!)From all of this, I even gained the confidence to compete in my first ever competition in November, at the Scottish Open, and was totally stoked with my results - I PBd my clean & jerk and gained a new total overall! Without Allan and his great coaching, I wouldn’t have the confidence and knowledge I have now and certainly wouldn’t have ever competed - so thank you Allan for being an awesome coach, for always being encouraging and for believing in me If you’re looking for a coach to help you achieve your goals and make you the most confident you’ll ever be in the gym, Allan’s your man.

I have been receiving Weightlifting Online Coaching and training programs from Allan for the past 4 months and I am delighted with the service.

I have been assisted to make massive jumps in performance and have broken many Personal Bests in this short time. I had hit a wall in my previous training regime and training with Allan has really progressed me onto the next level.

I really enjoy the bespoke nature of the service I receive. My programming is tailored specifically for me, and focuses on the areas I need to improve. I would certainly not be performing at the level I am without the level of expert coaching I receive.

I regularly receive feedback, and Allan is incredibly accessible with a great manner and attitude to fitness.

I've been training with Allan for the last few months and can honestly say it's been excellent. Not only have all of my lifts increased across the board, but my confidence with more technical movements has improved too. Allan's knowledge of movement, specifically Olympic Lifting, is brilliant.

He's a great programmer too, putting in time to get to know my goals and current levels, to ensure what I'm doing in each session is on point and pushing me in the right direction.

He's also honest and super passionate about fitness. I've had a lot of different coaches in the past and if there's one thing that seperates the really excellent ones, it's honesty and passion. You can't beat it.

I have been training for a while now and thought I would give weightlifting a go, Allan was recommended to me and thought I will get a few sessions in to get me started. It's only been a few months but the progress I have made has been amazing not to mention how much I've learned. He's a great coach who loves to train and it shows with his knowledge and understanding that people are individuals and need to be coached that way. More...

I came to breakthrough performance with the goal of increasing my strength, fitness and familiarity with strong man events. Allan came highly recommended with his background in both strongman events and Olympic weightlifting.

Allan provided me with workout plans which he updated regularly, nutrition advice, as well as private one to one tuition.

Over the course of the 10 sessions with Allan my strength and stamina dramatically increased. Allan spent a great deal of time to identify my weaknesses and incorporated exercises to improve technique and strength. As well as working on technical lifts such as atlas stones and log press. All of which came on leaps and bounds under Allan's tuition.

I'd highly recommend Allan to anyone looking to improve their strength and fitness as he provides a friendly atmosphere to work in and a varied routine to keep you challenged and motivated throughout.

Q&As

We agree on a plan of action that is tried and tested. I'll help you find the way that works for you, is enjoyable and most importantly we'll work together to keep you accountable. That means we will constantly be adjusting and making sure you are on the right path to achieving your goals.

Consistent hard work. You will fail time and time again but the key is to learn from those mistakes. Look at them as opportunities to grow and learn and you will become unstoppable.

I love the problem solving nature of being able to help figure out the intricacies of you as a personal so that we can figure out a sustainable routine to get you on the path to success.

I started my own business as I felt the fitness industry was failing not only the average consumer but also the personal trainers and everyone involved. Most big chain gyms don't really care about you or whether you achieve your goals, they only care that you continue to pay your monthly membership. As I actually care about you and your goals, I make it my obligation to help you achieve them no matter what. Once you have reached your goals you should be in a position where you know what it takes to maintain them and no longer need the help of a trainer so often.

I take an individual approach to figure out what works and what is sustainable for you. I'll help educate you along the way so that you are empowered to make your own positive choices and so that you are able to continue your health and fitness journey for long after you have the help of a personal trainer.
