A Review of Personal Trainers and Other Fitness Services in Aberdeen

Aberdeen is Scotland’s third largest city with a population of more than 210,000. The city has a number of health and fitness clubs as well as private companies that offer other fitness related services, so there is certainly no excuse to be lazy.

The Warehouse Health Club on Mearns Street, Aberdeen has a range of classes on offer. The Mixed Martial Arts class with Marc costs 4.00 per class. As well as toning, strengthening and improving cardiovascular fitness, the classes will help anyone with confidence issues. You can also do Body Blast with Wendy at The Warehouse Health Club, which is suitable for all levels. For those who like a little dancing, there is some simple choreography in this class. With a highly choreographed step class Kerry will play the latest tunes and incorporate the latest moves for the more advanced fitness fans out there.

If it’s moving to energised music then Zumba may be the perfect choice. Zumba is Columbian slang for ‘buzz like a bee’ or ‘move fast’ and was created by the Columbian dancer and choreographer Alberto ‘Beto’ Perez in 2001. After forgetting his aerobics tapes he substituted them for his salsa and merengue music and his class loved it. It now has a worldwide following and is available in many locations within Aberdeen. Zumba fitness programmes combine the fast paced Latin rhythms with a workout that’s fun and exhilarating. It aims to tone the entire body with elements of resistance training alongside a cardio-based workout appropriate for any fitness level. Zumba classes are available with Alison Livingston at the Aberdeen Academy of Performing Arts on a Monday, the Kincorth Sports Centre on a Tuesday or the Holburn Bar on various days of the week. Alison urges people to join her as every class feels like a party and it’s not necessary to know how to dance. Many people do want to learn to dance.

Dancing not only improves fitness levels, it also gives participants skills that can be used socially at weddings or dinner dances. As with classes in any area of fitness, there is also the opportunity to meet new people and learn how to work at something together. Dance classes are available throughout Aberdeen. Citymoves is the dance agency for North East Scotland and is part of Aberdeen City Council’s Education, Culture & Sport Service. It nurtures and supports the work of dance artists, groups, tutors, creators and companies, and takes a lead role in dance development in the city of Aberdeen and the North East. A range of inclusive dance activities are available at Citymoves for people of all ages and abilities, including ballet, tap, jazz, creative, contemporary, traditional and world dances. Classes and workshops in the studio attract participants from a fifty mile radius of the City. Classes and workshops are also run at outreach venues throughout Aberdeen City and Aberdeenshire.

The Northern Dance Club provides tuition in Ballroom and Latin American dancing, for complete beginners, and improvers, as well as a fun social dancing calendar that includes demonstration nights with dance cabaret performances from top class ballroom and Latin dance couples. It is possible to learn the Waltz, Quickstep, Foxtrot, Tango, Rumba, Jive, Cha Cha and following tuition there is an opportunity for social dancing which encourages members to try out what they have learnt

The University and Aberdeen City Council are the funding partners of The Aberdeen Sports Village, which aims to provide a variety of sports for all. The Sports Village also delivers a wide range of facilities and services that can be customised to the particular needs of organisations in and around Aberdeen. Their packages include gym membership with swimming, athletics or squash from less than 35 per month, and an all inclusive package for £45 per month.

If you didn’t mind spending a little more or you prefer a private health club, then you might like to try Cannons Health Club on Justice Mills Lane. The Club has become a Nuffield Health, Fitness and Wellbeing Centre and as well as the normal facilities you would expect from a private health club, Cannons are able to provide personal training services.

The personal trainers at Cannons have the expertise to deliver bespoke training programmes, specifically focusing on technique so that should you wish you to train on your own at the club, you can do so safely and effectively.

Whilst a gym environment may suit some people it doesn’t suit all, so there is another option.

Workout at home takes the personal training service one step further by delivering training sessions in the comfort and privacy of your own home. Workout at home has recently recruited Nick Kelly, who is an experienced and highly qualified personal trainer in Aberdeen. By getting Nick to come to you, you will save time not having to travel to the gym and you will not have to worry about what you wear. You do not even need to have your own fitness equipment because Nick will bring all the necessary equipment with him.

Martial Arts is steeped in a philosophical approach to increased fitness and the Aberdeen Martial Arts Group on Links Road advocates martial arts as a vehicle for personal growth and development. The focus is on mental fitness as well as physical fitness through responsibility taken for personal safety as self-defence methods are cultivated. The theory is that as higher martial arts training is achieved these higher standards are ultimately reached within the trainee. The arts on offer by the Aberdeen Martial Arts Group include jeet kune do, jun fan gung fu, the filipino martial arts, muay thai, jkd grappling and brazilian jiu jitsu.

For those that want to focus on their core strength and stability then it’s well worth considering Pilates. Aberdeen Pilates Studio was established in 2001 and has continued to grow in popularity ever since. Pilates like martial arts incorporates philosophy with physical activity and aims to increase a person’s understanding of their mind as well as their body. Pilates can benefit people with acute injuries, chronic pain conditions, recovering from surgery, those with neurological conditions, who are pregnant or post natal and older adults. The Aberdeen Pilates Studio promotes Pilates as a safe and relaxing form of exercise. Many people associate yoga with relaxation and the people of Aberdeen find it releases tension caused by everyday stress and strain. However, the Love Yoga Studio that is based in Union Terrace in Aberdeen believes that Yoga is also a way of generating positive physical energy.

Through yoga, one’s body becomes stronger and more flexible. Again, the combination of focusing on the mind as well as the body is highlighted. Over time the techniques encourage participants to tune into thoughts, as well as their bodies. Love Yoga Studio offers choices from Traditional Hatha Yoga; Yin Yoga; Astanga Yoga (also known as Power Yoga); Private Classes; Dancing Yoga; Yoga for Kids; Workshops, Retreats; Prenatal Yoga; Shiatsu Massage and more.

Lastly but no means least don’t forget Boot camps. Not for everyone but if you are the type to enjoy a gruelling workout then it might be for you. GI Julie Boot Camp in Aberdeenshire, Scotland, offers a residential weight loss boot camp and a one day boot camp. Boot camp is about intensity and group bonding, but GI Julie also offers one to one personal training if someone is looking for some more individual attention.
