Online Personal Training
At Fitness Lab, we are redefining what Online Personal Training means.
ONLINE PERSONAL TRAINERS LONDON
PROFESSIONAL – RESPONSIVE – FRIENDLY
As well as in-person training sessions in our London studios, we provide online personal training to make sure that even when you can’t make it into the gym, you can keep working towards your training plan at home.
Some of the things we can help with include:
Guided By Experts
Our coaches are all qualified at the highest level and have a minimum of 5 years experience. They have the knowledge and expertise needed to get you from where you are now, to where you want to be. As a team, we don’t believe in basic instruction – we believe in high-level performance coaching. With your goals and needs at the heart of everything we do, we are committed to helping you reach your full potential.
We're here to help. Complete the short form below and one of the team will be in touch.
How Does Online Personal Training Work?
Going through three lockdowns has given us the chance to really perfect our online personal training offering!
The first step is to carry out a free initial consultation with one of our personal trainers. They will spend a whole hour with you to find out what goals you want to achieve, what your fitness level is, what your training experience is, etc. They will also discuss your nutrition and lifestyle and carry out some movement analysis to understand how your body moves.
In your consultation, your personal trainer will want to know all about your health and lifestyle – how much time you spend at work, how stressful your working life is, how much you currently exercise, what your nutrition is like, whether you’ve done one on one training before, etc. We see personal training as a partnership. Taking the time to get to know you means we know exactly what support you need and gives us the information we need to start working on your tailored programme.
From here, you will decide how many sessions per week you would like to do. This will depend on your goals and how quickly you would like to achieve them. Your trainer will be able to help guide you in the right direction, so that you’re doing enough without overdoing it.
The only thing that is different to in-studio personal training is the method of delivery – instead of being by your side in the gym, your personal trainer will be coaching you from your laptop. Like with in person training, as a priority they will want to see your form and technique, so make sure you have a good webcam ready to go.
What Support Will You Get From Your Trainer
Just like when you train with us in-person at the studio, the support goes far beyond the time you spend with your coach in your personal training sessions. We are here to give you all the support and help that you need to improve your health and fitness and to keep you “on track”. Your coach is always on hand for advice, whether that’s nutrition advice, advice on what stretches or recovery work to do, advice on what home kit to buy or tips for the best supplements to invest in.
Your coach will schedule regular accountability check-ins, to help you stay motivated outside of your sessions. This is especially helpful when it comes to helping you with your nutrition, for example if you have a weight loss goal.
We provide a truly personal approach to personal training. Our coaches will be there with you every step of the way, giving you the guidance and support you need to achieve all of your health and fitness goals. We're here to help you take it to the next level.
ONLINE PERSONAL TRAINING
Can't make it to the studio? Caught up with things to do? No problem. Via our bespoke training app and live video sessions, you can take your coach home, on holiday or away with you on business.
We’ve partnered with the very best sports and injury specialists to provide you with the ultimate circle of care. Our partners include physiotherapists, sports massage therapists, osteopaths and sleep specialists. We offer an initial free consultation - if you have any personal injuries or special requirements we are happy to help and provide guidance.
Nutrition has one of the greatest impacts on how you perform daily in and out of the gym and the success you are going to have with your body composition goals. At Fitness Lab we offer a variety of nutritional support services from expert consultations with our industry leading Nutrition partners to to tailor made food delivered to your door with our Chef partner.
At Fitness Lab, we truly believe everyone should be doing some form of strength training. No other form of exercise matches this if strength and muscle gain is the end goal. This is of course obvious, but what is often overlooked is why we should aim to build muscle for more strength.
Fat loss is arguably one of the most positive outcomes from exercise and directly leads to a large number of health improvements. Through an in-depth understanding of how the body functions and responds to certain training stimulus, your coach will tailor your training plan

A WORD FROM OUR HIGHLY VALUED CLIENTS
TRULY PERSONAL – FULLY INCLUSIVE – DESIGNED FOR YOU
I love training with these guys - they know how to push to always get the best out of me. Discrete, professional and charming, training at Fitness Lab is a pleasure not a chore
My husband and I have been training with Fitness Lab for a year and half now. Their studio in Soho is well designed and maintained. Most of all, we have both loved working with our trainers. They’re committed to helping you transform your lifestyle and habits. They provide really helpful, tailored advice and are so positive and motivating! I have gotten stronger and healthier than I have ever been. It’s been such a wonderful experience to train with them, and with Sandra in particular!
I have MS so have limited mobility. Ash has drawn me up a program to strengthen my core and upper body using resistance bands. The exercises, their purpose, which muscles were being worked were all clearly explained and demonstrated. Very excited about getting into the routine of using the program and I'm sure I will be going back to Ash for add ons. 10/10
Great clean facilities, super friendly and professional trainers. Sandra is so wonderful. I start feeling stressed and super tight and leave looser, fitter and happier. She helps me achieve all my body goals and checks in with me during the week. I’m looking and feeling fitter than ever!
Is Online Personal Training As Effective As Regular Personal Training
This is a really common question that we get from clients and the answer is YES. Absolutely! Many people come to us worrying that doing a training session at home won’t be as effective as training in the studio, but rest assured our personal trainers have the experience to make sure you get results, whether you’re training with us in London or doing online personal training.
How To Choose An Online Personal Trainer
There are now many online personal trainers offering their services – so as a client it can be really difficult to make sure you’re making the right choice.
A worrying trend in the fitness industry is the growing number of people who take a quick online course, then start calling themselves “coaches” and selling their plans online – despite NEVER having trained someone in person. This is really not right. All of our coaches have years of experience in the personal training industry and are incredibly passionate about what they do.
The best coaches know that with this job, you simply never stop learning, no matter how long you’ve been doing it. Look for a PT who has clearly invested their time in improving their craft, staying up to date with latest developments and following world class scientists and researchers to ensure they deliver the best coaching.
Make sure you know what their clients say. As well as credentials and certifications, ask to see testimonials. Be wary if a PT isn’t able to provide you with very many. They should have years’ worth of happy clients who are eager to spread the word about their coach.
Steer clear of personal trainers offering to sell you a meal plan. A good personal trainer knows that this is just part of the package and will not be charging you extra (plus; while we have the knowledge and expertise to guide you and recommend nutrition and lifestyle changes to support the work you’re doing in the gym, anything beyond that is beyond our scope – chat to a registered dietician if you need to get deeper nutrition advice, for example to deal with digestive issues)
A good trainer will kick things off with an initial consultation and movement screening, to understand how YOUR individual body moves. It’s absolutely essential, because it’s from this information that they can tailor a workout programme specifically for you. Avoid any online coaches who don’t offer a thorough consultation AND movement screening before they start working with you. Reminder – we offer this for free in our consultation process
Client Results from Personal Training
“I was skeptical about trying online personal training to begin with – I didn’t think I’d find online training as effective as seeing my trainer in the gym face-to-face. I’m glad to say I was wrong! I’ve tried a few online training classes, but my remote training with Fitness Lab has been my best online training experience so far. It’s been 6 months and I have no plans to stop now. I’ve seen amazing results in terms of weight loss, overall fitness and best of all I am happier in my body than I have ever been. YAY!!!”
“Best online personal training I have tried. Really helped to keep me on track with my workout plan and diet during lockdown. The coaching is highly personalised and my personal trainer knows I have a busy life and gives me support me when it comes to finding time to exercise. Exercise definitely boosted my mental health during lockdown”
“I didn’t think online personal training was going to be right for me, but after giving it a go I’ve been pleasantly surprised. The coaching is highly personal and in a short time I’ve already seen an improvement in my fitness and body composition. I used to find myself dreading the gym but now I actually look forward to every training session. Excited to see my results in another 3 months!”
Why Choose Fitness Lab
Most Personal Trainers in London work on a freelance basis, meaning that they struggle to find an environment where their career progression and education are truly valued. This is a huge problem facing the personal training industry. We founded Fitness Lab with the understanding that to truly help people, we need to attract the best trainers and provide them with the tools and environment to provide the highest quality coaching possible. We prioritise education to ensure that our clients always get the best from their trainer and get results.
