Fitness Class Instructors & Personal Trainers

We’re proud to work with such knowledgeable, friendly and helpful fitness class instructors and personal trainers across all our venues. Having a good instructor or PT can take your workout to the next level, providing you with that extra boost you need to get the most out of your training. 

Please note that these trainers and instructors are not employed by Edinburgh Leisure, but we are still here to support them where possible throughout COVID-19. 



We know how much you love our fitness class instructors. There’s nothing better than the feeling you get after they put you through your paces in one of our fitness studios, with classes tailored to all ages and abilities. Whether you love your Saturday morning step class or prefer Pilates in the evening, our team of instructors have you covered.

Many of them are still working throughout COVID-19, running virtual classes and providing expert advice to help you get through this challenging time. You can see details of these instructors below.
