Sports Nutrition Advice: London

At Fitness Lab, we have decades of experience helping people transform their bodies – and we know that eating habits have a huge impact on how quickly you’ll achieve your transformation goals.

Although most people come to us with personal training at the front of their minds, the truth is, there’s often just as much work to be done in your kitchen as there is in our Soho and Fitzrovia training venues! Our holistic approach to mental and physical wellbeing considers every part of your life – and the food you eat is a big part of that.

Although we don’t have a registered nutritional therapist as part of our in-house team, we do have an incredibly knowledgeable range of personal trainers and fitness experts who will help you put together an eating plan that we are 100% certain will lead to enormous changes when you look in the mirror.

If you need specialist nutritional therapy for ongoing health issues or medical conditions, we can help you find a registered nutritionist you can trust – but if you just want dietary advice that will transform the way you look, feel, and perform, you’re in exactly the right place.


Fitness and weight management

You’re unique. Aside from just your genetic make-up – your lifestyle, diet, daily movement, sleeping pattern, and hundreds of other factors make you absolutely individual. At Fitness Lab, we consider all these factors when we talk to you about an eating plan that will help you hit your health goals.

Of course, those goals vary from person to person too. For every individual that’s aiming for weight loss, there’s someone else looking to build lean muscle, develop a slightly different body shape, achieve healthy weight gain, or fine-tune sports nutrition for an athletic event.

When you talk to one of our personal trainers about optimum nutrition, you get a genuinely bespoke service – not just a one-size-fits-all approach that involves nothing but protein shakes, chicken and kale!

Convenient healthy eating tailored to you

For many people, the biggest hurdle standing in the way of optimal health is time.

Balancing all of life’s commitments with consistent healthy eating is an incredibly difficult skill – and it’s one that millions of people just do not have the time to master. If you feel like time is against you, we can talk to you about our partner service in Central London that offers daily healthy meals delivered to your door.

Whatever your personal situation and whether you’re hoping for lean gains, weight loss, muscle building, or just eating for all-round good health, our partner has plant-based, pescatarian or flexitarian balanced meals that promote gut health and keep your body functioning at 100%.

No fad diets – just evidence-based nutrition advice

Thanks to the internet, there are thousands of fad diets available at your fingertips right now. Some of them work for a while, some of them are extremely difficult to maintain, and some of them are downright dangerous.

Although we appreciate the appeal of quick diet fixes and miracle superfoods, the truth is that there’s no fashionable diet plan that will truly give you the body you want.

At Fitness Lab, our nutrition advice and meal plans are based on the kind of expert knowledge that takes years to build. When we work with you to put together an eating plan, it’ll be based on real science, legitimate evidence, and our expert understanding of how your body works. The result? Meaningful and lasting changes to your energy levels, your confidence, and the way you look.

Brett and Soho Fitness Lab are quite simply the best PT team I have trained with. Professional, knowledgeable and fantastic at tailoring a very tough work out with adaptions for my various historical injuries. The results speak for themselves. I can't recommend them highly enough!

I've been training with Olivia at Soho Fitness Lab since the beginning of December and the experience has been brilliant. As a newbie to working with a P/T I was nervous going into it, but from the first session I saw I had nothing to worry about. The space is unlike your usual gyms - it’s private and just the right size, and has a smart feel to it. It's a perfect spot for pre-work workouts if you are in or around Soho, or live there like I do. Never thought I'd be happy getting up at 6am to go to the gym but always look forward to it as I see the progress I am making!

I’ve recently started training with James after a bit of a hiatus with my fitness. He really gets where I’m coming from, as I’m working around old injuries. The sessions are a lot of fun and I feel great afterwards. He really know what he’s doing and I’m excited to be back on the right path.

I've found the team at Fitness Lab to be very professional, knowledgeable and flexible based on my capabilities and fitness goals. My PT, Rhys has been a great help in tailoring sessions and even adapting them whilst I had some sporting injuries. He has also taken the time outside of sessions to send tips on diet, demo videos of exercises to do at home and just generally communicate with me outside of the hourly sessions to keep me motivated, which is not something you normally get from past experiences elsewhere. I would highly recommend Fitness lab if you're serious about improving your fitness and/or have hit a brick wall with your 'run of the mill' PTs out there. It's well worth it in my opinion.

Professional, knowledgeable and personal. I had a really brilliant trainer in Rhys who helped me achieve and even surpass my fitness goals while making the whole thing seem fun and manageable. No idea how. Class act, class gym 👍

Frequently Asked Questions

Disordered eating is often something people need specialist support with – and that’s not something we’re qualified to do here at Fitness Lab. However, we’d be more than happy to work alongside any professional medical advice you receive to help you put together an eating plan as part of your treatment

Yes. People of different genders almost always need different eating advice – especially when it comes to menstruation, becoming pregnant, and recovering from pregnancy – as well as approaching and going through the menopause. As well as having a diverse team here at Fitness Lab, we each also have areas of specific expertise – so we can offer expert advice on the specific kind of nutrition that will work for you.

Specific digestive issues (like coeliac disease, irritable bowel syndrome, and other auto-immune conditions) will often need dedicated medical advice to help you understand the root cause of the problem and how food affects your health. Trained medical dieticians will sometimes even need to put together special diets to help you manage your issues. We don’t have these facilities at Fitness Lab – but we can absolutely work alongside medical professionals to support your needs.

No, we do not. A dietitian is a qualified health professional who can help you with special diets designed to help with diagnosed medical conditions. We don’t have those facilities here at Fitness Lab – but we’re happy to help you implement and specialist requirements you have into your personal training or eating plans.

No, we don’t offer food intolerance testing – but do understand exactly how different foods and food types can impact gut health and clash with health optimisation. We’ll often work with clients to keep a food diary and look at how different foods affect your training, fat loss goals, muscle building efforts, and much more. If you feel like food intolerance testing is something you’d like to explore, we can help you understand the results you get back and build an eating plan around what you learn.

Absolutely. There are very real scientific connections between your physical and mental health – and since eating is a significant part of changing your physique, you’ll often find it positively impacts your mental well-being too. Of course, mental health is something people often need specialist medical support with – and while we don’t offer that, we’re happy to help you implement and diet or exercises changes that medical professionals think will help.

Since food is the number one source of fuel for our bodies, it’s absolutely incredible what even just a few diet changes can make to a huge range of conditions. From managing skin health, thyroid health, and conditions like diabetes and irritable bowel syndrome, right through to hormone imbalances that come as a result of health issues like polycystic ovarian syndrome – the right kind of nutrition can often be life-changing. We’re happy to work with the advice you receive from specialist nutritional therapist to put together an exercise and eating plan to help.

Yes! Even looking at the label that comes on a shop-bought salad is enough to give most people a headache – and with lots of contradicting advice found online, it’s very hard to make sense of all the different terms and phrases used. In reality, healthy eating for weight management and other similar goals comes down to a few basic rules – and people that dress those rules up are usually trying to make money! At Fitness Lab, we’ll help you understand what you’re putting in your body, what the different numbers and phrases mean, and how to use the information to transform what you see in the mirror.
