Personal training and programmes

Let us help you set, challenge and reach your goals with our qualified trainers

We all lead busy lives, we try to balance work, play and home life with working out and reaching our fitness goals. Goals are important to set in our workouts to show where we started and where we want to get to. Working with a personal trainer will help you achieve your goals faster. Following a training plan driven by your personal goals will ensure you stay accountable and motivated. Your trainer will ensure you use the correct technique to prevent injuries and will help you to maximise your time and track your progress too.

Personal training

Before you purchase a personal training package get yourself booked in with one of our trainers for a free consultation via the UOP Sport mobile app. Check out our trainers below and select the one you think best suits your training goals. 

You can then discuss your fitness goals, training preferences and goals with your personal trainer. Your trainer will then discuss with you about payment and bookings for your sessions, generally, we'll do this at the end of your consultation.

Training plans

If you're coming to us with the motivation to succeed - you're in the right place. Following a training plan and tracking your activity will keep you on track and help you stay motivated to exercise more regularly. Our UOP Fitness app has hundreds of pre-prescribed training plans. Simply answer a few questions and it will suggest suitable programmes to meet your fitness goals. If you would like a training plan designed just for you for only £12, simply book a consultation with one of the team and they will do the rest.
