John Turland

Parkside Pools and Gym


Hi, I’m John - the new Personal Trainer at the gym!  Some of you may already recognise me, as I also work here as a Swimming Teacher and have worked locally as a Primary School Teacher.

Would you like to make amazing progress in the gym and achieve your goals?  Perhaps you struggle with getting to the gym consistently.  Or maybe you come regularly, but are still not getting the results you want.

I can work with you to help you achieve your goals such as losing weight, building muscle, increasing your strength or developing your flexibility.  I will plan a personalised and progressive series of sessions for you, taking into account your interests and exercise preferences.  

I can help you to develop healthy lifestyle habits for the rest of your week, when you aren’t at the gym.  You can make small and gradual changes to integrate more movement into your day and improve your sleep and nutrition.  For those who would like this, I offer advice and/or accountability between sessions by text or email.

Having just qualified as a Movnat Level 1 trainer, for those interested I can offer natural movement as part of my sessions.  Movnat is a system of teaching the skills that humans used to do in nature as part of their everyday lives for most of human history as hunter gatherers.  So you can learn to become efficient in skills like crawling, lifting, carrying, balancing, walking and jumping - making your workouts much more varied and developing your practical functional fitness for everyday life.
