The Best Personal Trainers: London

Forget what you know about personal trainers – at Fitness Lab, we’re redefining the personal training session. Exercise, nutrition, rest, mental well-being - we'll support you in every area that underpins your health.

We’re absolutely certain that our highly qualified team are the best personal trainers in the UK – and they’ll work with you individually in your own personal training pod – giving you private access to all the space and equipment you’ll need to achieve amazing results.

You don't pay a membership fee at Fitness Lab either. Simply pay for your sessions and use them as required - they never expire.


What are your health and fitness goals?

Personal training doesn’t start on the treadmill or the weights bench – it starts with a conversation. At Fitness Lab, we’ll talk about what you’d like to aim for – and when we know that, you’ll have a personal trainer at your side, providing the ongoing support you need every session to help you exceed what you thought was possible.

We will help you transform what you see when you look in the mirror. Your personal training plan won’t be based on fad diets or extreme gym sessions either – it’ll be based on the real science and the proven body transformation techniques that we’ve been successfully using with our clients for over 15 years.

Your own private gym space

No one wants to wait in a queue to use equipment that needs to be wiped down before you train. At Fitness Lab, we’re proud to do things differently.

At our Mayfair, Soho and Fitzrovia locations, you and your in-house personal trainer have your own personal workout pod. This beautifully prepared and presented space is exclusively yours while you train – with all the cardio, weight lifting, and mobility equipment you need.

Training that’s tailored to you

Your body and lifestyle is completely unique, and at Fitness Lab, our approach truly reflects that.

From conventional fat loss and muscle-building transformations – to more specialist programs that are built around specific sports coaching, medical conditions, pre/post-natal training, or countering menopausal weight gain; we’ve got an almost endless knowledge base and a way of working that puts you at the heart of every session and goal.

The best personal trainers in London

Every Fitness Lab coach is qualified to the highest level and has at least five years of experience providing bespoke, one-to-one personal training sessions.

Don’t worry – just because our coaches are the best in the business, we don’t expect you to be an elite athlete striving for ultimate performance! We’ll meet you at your level, whether you’re new to exercise, an experienced gym-goer, or you’ve just tried out a few circuit training or group training classes.

Having the best coaches by your side will help you focus on a fitness plan and get into the shape you want quickly and safely.

Why not take a look at our facilities?


Is paying for a personal trainer worth it?

Everybody’s life, work, and financial situations are different – so we can’t say for certain whether personal training is going to be right for everyone.

What we can tell you is this:

If you want to push the accelerator on getting in shape and getting the kind of physique you daydream about, our bespoke personal training will take you there. Our approach to personal training helps our members achieve the kind of body transformations that most people don’t think are possible.

It’s important to understand that personal training is about far more than just having someone beside you as you hit the treadmill, lift weights, or swing a kettlebell. Personal training keeps you motivated on those days where your gym kit doesn’t look appealing or you don’t fancy fitness classes – and it gives you unbeatable accountability when you need an extra push or a fitness regime challenge to reach for.

Your personal trainer will make sure you’re training properly and moving at the right pace. Whether you’re training for an event, hoping for fat loss, muscle gain, overall fitness, or even improved mental health – working with a personal trainer will mean you’ve got a professional, objective view of your goals and your progress, along with the peace of mind that your health and well-being are always our number one priority.

Only you can decide if a personal trainer is right for you – but if you feel it is, teaming up with the Fitness Lab team will be a life-changing investment.

A Word From Our Clients

I have been a happy client of Fitness Lab (Jack in particular) for over 3 years now. All the trainers are professional and thorough, and also friendly and supportive. They've helped me become stronger and more flexible, and progress continues..I strongly recommend them!
Radomira is a great coach. Highly motivating, fun, excellent listener, sessions with her are never boring. She know how to push people out of the comfort zone without forcing them. Rare quality for a coach. The studio itself is optimally located at the heat of Soho and is very well equipped. The concept of a coach-only gym is not common and probably the best option for anyone who take their fitness seriously.

I have been with Fitness Lab for 2 years it has been a gradual transition to strength and fitness working with my excellent trainer Ash. It isn’t a quick fix to weight loss but a longer term investment in being a stronger me. With the individual focus I just don’t have to think about having to motivate myself, or worry about whether I am using the weights correctly, Ash takes care of that and gradually pushes me to push myself.

I chose Fitness Lab because the idea of a gym with a more intimate atmosphere, free from overwhelming crowds was very appealing to me. Originally, I planned to join for just a couple of months to get ready for summer, but here I am in November, still committed! The primary reason for that is my PT Radomira, who creates a customised program that suits my individual goals, always motivates me without pushing too hard and makes each session enjoyable and uplifting. I can actually see the progress and am very happy that I ended up choosing this gym.

Fitness Lab is awesome for getting in shape – it's all about personal attention here. Love the private workouts compared to a packed gym. Big shoutout to my PT Radomira for providing personalized and effective workouts, pushing me hard while keeping it safe, injury-free and enjoyable.

I would absolutely recommend Fitness Lab to anyone who is looking get the best PT experience in London. It really helps to be working out in a private space rather than in a public gym and the facilities and equipment are all first-rate and well-maintained. I have to give a huge thank you to my PT, Ash, who has turbo-charged my training. He has put the time, effort and his knowledge into tailoring my workouts to achieve my goals. I don't feel like I'm aimlessly working out or unsure of whether I'm doing the right thing or not anymore and the results have been fantastic. I'm improving in areas that I have always struggled with and it just makes me even more motivated. Ash always brings the right vibe so that I look forward to each session rather than it feeling like a chore. He keeps the workouts varied to make things interesting and if there is ever something I can't do because of injury then he is able to adapt when necessary. The whole experience at Fitness Lab has been fantastic.

The private personal training here helped me gain control of complicated back issues and get back to playing rugby for the first time in years! My PT was so focused on specifics for my situation and the results speak for themselves. They are so well located for a lunchtime session from work. In my opinion the best personal training studio in Soho!

Frequently Asked Questions

Our clients train between 6am-8pm Monday-Friday – then 8am-3pm Saturdays. We’re closed on Sundays. If there’s a specific time slot you’d like, we’ll do our very best to accommodate you.

Yes. Our central London facilities and elite personal trainer qualifications make us an excellent choice if you’re looking to regain mobility and fitness after an injury.

In fact, many of our fitness coaches have completed specific fitness industry injury rehab qualifications, as well as elite level personal trainer courses. We can put together a specialist rehabilitation program and training methods that are based on your specific injury and need.

We also have a partner business in our Soho location. They have specialist physiotherapists, massage therapists, and a range of injury rehab resources. We can work hand-in-hand too - complementing hands-on rehab therapy with gym-based sessions that suit your training style.

There are some 'charge-by-the-hour' personal training services that'll happily tell you to come everyday - but this most definitely isn't the case at Fitness Lab.

How often you should workout depends on a lot of factors. In fact, we've covered it in detail in our blog: How Much Exercise Should I Do Each Day to Lose Weight? The good news is - whatever your level of fitness, hitting the gym hard every day probably isn't the best way forward.

Depending on your personal circumstances, working-out 2-3 times a week is usually a good place to aim for. Beyond that, our expert personal trainers will help you understand other lifestyle, fitness, rest, and nutrition factors for your week that will help you towards your goal. Building a realistic and achievable new attitude towards exercise is ALWAYS better than hitting the gym hard for a few weeks and then finding yourself injured or lacking motivation.

Yes, almost certainly! Losing weight - or specifically, losing fat - is a tricky thing to get exactly right. You might not realise it - but getting fat loss just right is a careful balance of exercise, nutrition, and recovery. If any one of these things isn't quite right (they're easy to lose track of!) then you'll find yourself struggling to get in the shape you want.

At Fitness Lab, we are experts in all these areas - so we'll be able to talk to you about the lifestyle you need to be in the right shape. It's perfectly achievable - but always much easier with an expert on your side! 

You're welcome to read more about the kind of things we'll help with in our blog: Why Am I Not Losing Weight?

We have studios in Mayfair,  Soho and Fitzrovia. As a Fitness Lab client, you are free to use either location and our team work closely to make sure your goals, progress and exercise routine are clearly communicated so you get a seamless experience.

Absolutely. We realise guidelines and rules have changed since the Covid-19 pandemic - but we still do everything we can to make sure our studios are safe places to be.

As well as our cleanliness and hygiene being second-to-none, we encourage our team to keep check of any symptoms that might suggest they're unwell. You'll never be working with a personal trainer who is ill. 

Our space is also a huge factor in keeping everyone safe. You'll never be working out close to anyone else - so you can be 100% confident that all aspects of your well-being are in good hands.

Of course. We can work towards the exact goal you’ve got in mind – whether that’s to lose weight, tone up, or build your strength. Our sports science and body composition knowledge means we can put together personal training sessions and online programming that will move the weight and keep it off.

If you'd like to hear more about what your training might look like, check out our blog: Programming for Weight Loss. Also, you might be interested in hearing more about how strength training is an important part of getting into the shape you want: Should I Be Lifting Weights to Lose Weight?

Yes. Every station in our pod-based system has a full range of bespoke gym machinery and free weights. Whatever level of strength you have or want to achieve, our boutique training facility can comfortably accommodate your needs.

It's easy to take a look at social media and get the impression that everyone's got motivation to spare - but that's really not the case. Motivation is difficult to find - especially at the start of your fitness journey. 

The good news is, personal training can give you the nudge you need when you feel like skipping your workout. It's not all about patting you on the back and cheering you on though - we work with principles and ideas that are proven to help you build habits that stick. 

If you'd like to learn more about how we knowledge, goals, measurements and atmosphere to inspire motivation, check out our blog: How Can a Personal Trainer Help Your Motivation?

Absolutely. Everyone has to start somewhere, and we always strive to make training programme sessions fun and confidence-building. You’ll be amazed at how quickly weight loss and muscle gain start to change the way you feel.

What's more, we celebrate successes with people of all fitness levels. We're not one of those "no pain, no gain!" studios - instead, we focus on the little wins; since every session is a step closer to your goal.

You probably already know body transformations don’t happen overnight – but you’ll be surprised how quickly you’ll start to see changes. With the help of fitness instructors or a good personal trainer and a focused workout programme, most people will take huge steps towards their goals in as little as 6-8 weeks.
