Personal Trainer: London

Forget what you know about personal trainers – at Fitness Lab, we’re redefining the personal training session.

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.


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 both our 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.

Our personal training services are truly next level

We’ve talked about how we take personal training in London to a whole new level – but what does that really mean for you?

When you choose Fitness Lab, you can access a range of world-class services that will remove any hurdles standing in the way of your body transformation.

From online sessions when you can’t make it to the studio – to a wrap-around holistic approach to fitness that can include nutrition advice, meal-planning and physical therapies, we’ve got you covered:

Personal trainer London: How much should you pay?

When you live and work in central London, you come to realise that price and quality of service do not necessarily go hand-in-hand. We don’t aim to be the cheapest personal trainers in London – but we are confident that we are one of the very best.

We think the kind of body transformation results you’ll achieve with a Fitness Lab personal trainer represents outstanding value for money. If you’d like to learn more about how we’d put together a bespoke personal training package for you, please get in touch.

Taking personal training sessions even further

It’s no exaggeration to say that by choosing the right personal training in London, you can completely transform what you see when you look in the mirror. If you want to make that transformation happen even quicker, we talk to you about adding a customised healthy meal delivery service through our specialist nutrition partner.

Enquire now: Your dream body is closer than you think

We’re not going to pretend that your body transformation is going to be a walk in the park – but we can promise you that by contacting us today, you’re taking the most important step towards having the body you want.

Get in touch. We’ll organise a free consultation, show you our stunning facilities, and give you all the information you need to decide if you want Fitness Lab’s life-changing approach to fitness on your side.

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.

Going to miss this place! Rhys was a top trainer 👏 highly recommend for those looking to progress in succeeding and living a healthy lifestyle 💪

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

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 - Movement Clinic. Here, we have specialist physiotherapists, massage therapists, and a range of injury rehab resources. We work hand-in-hand too - complementing hands-on rehab therapy with gym-based sessions.

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

Absolutely. We realise the guidelines and rules have changed since Covid-19 was at its peak - 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.
