I recommend Health by Science without reservation.”

Jamie Henderson

Hi, I’m Jamie, one of the coaches here at Health by Science. With over 5 years of experience coaching hundreds of clients ranging from stroke survivors to elite professional athletes, I am guaranteed to help you reach your goals. I ran my own business as a Personal Trainer whilst attaining two Sport Science degrees and working within elite sport, until joining the most forward-thinking group of Personal Trainers Edinburgh has to offer.

Ross Marwick

Hi I’m Ross, one of the coaches here at health by science. I have a decade of experience helping people improve their performance. I achieved top marks at diploma level before achieving a first-class honours degree in exercise physiology.

I have been fortunate enough to have some brilliant experiences along the way including; assisting in teaching multiple University undergraduate modules and working with Scottish Hockey u18s culminating in a silver medal at the euros.

Stuart Maytham

Hi, I’m Stuart one of the Physiotherapists here at Health by Science. I came up to Edinburgh from Bristol to study. Fast forward 10 years and I’ve spent 6 years studying two degrees at University, worked with hundreds of clients and managed to get some amazing experience working with top professionals at Hearts FC Academy and various sports clubs around Edinburgh.

You may recognise me from the TV show Dinner Date… unfortunately I’m not joking.

Alex Nairn

Hi I’m Alex and I get my clients the results they want through a mix of motivation, enjoyable programming ideas and an unorthodox sense of humour. I help my client’s reach their optimal potential, in a way that’s tailored to them.

My exercise programmes are designed to challenge you, but in a style which is fun and progressive. And when suitable, I will share my knowledge on the more obscure Motown classics to help you get through that final set.

Craig Young

Hi, my name is Craig, and across 5 years of coaching, I’ve been able to help hundreds of people across Edinburgh achieve their goals. With experience ranging from helping young athletes build muscle & improve performance, through to helping elderly clients improve and manage their disabilities or health conditions.

It’s fair to say my coaching style and approach has proven to be adaptable & extensive – much like my joke library. If you would like to work with a coach who takes a person-centred approach and will help you achieve your goals with the most efficient & effective method – then get in touch.

Frequently Asked Questions

What results can I expect?

This is one of the most common questions we receive and for good reason. Everyone undertaking training should have an idea of what they would like to get out of it. 

That’s why we work with you to dial down into what really matters to you and what that will look like. When we know this then we can create a clear roadmap on how to achieve it. 

Although the answer to the question of what results you can expect will vary depending on your physiology, your goals and your behaviours it also depends on what you are willing to put into achieving these results.

What we can say for sure, is that whatever your goal you will notice improvements within the first few weeks.

How much contact can I expect from my coach?

You can contact your coach as much as you like and they will contact you back on a weekly basis at a specified time.

We believe knowledge is a key component to success, and with lots of contradicting information on the internet, our clients often have many questions. 

To ensure we are able to answer your questions accurately & effectively, we ask that you send over any questions in a short bullet-point format. Your coach will then read through your questions and respond at a specific time each week.

Are Health by Science qualified to give programming advice?

When it comes to becoming qualified to work in the health and fitness industry, the entry-level is set pretty low as coaches with zero experience can become qualified in 6 weeks. What makes Health by Science different is that we go above and beyond this required entry-level by some margin. Our coaches have completed Masters and First Class Honors degrees in Sport and Exercise Science and Physiotherapy, Higher National Diploma courses and specialist exercise certifications. 

But these qualifications don’t mean anything without the practical application and experience to back it up. So what really makes our coaches different, is their ability to use all of this experience and education and apply it in a programme that is tailored to your exact goals and preferences.
