Testimonials


I first met Kyle when I reluctantly joined a Jog Scotland Group at ASV following a health scare.  My plan was to go along for the 6 week block to stop my friend nagging me!  On the first night we had to fill in a questionnaire and one question asked what sport you least enjoyed, my response was running! 
I now love running and a lot of that is down to Kyle.  He is an excellent motivator, who is knowledgeable and enthusiastic about running, and he continues to provide encouragement and support.  His enthusiasm for running is infectious.  Thanks to him I have had the confidence to set and achieve many goals: significant weight-loss, vastly improved health, signing-up for and completing first 5ks, then 10ks and even a half marathon. 
It would be fair to say Kyle has changed my life – all for the better.

As a recreational runner, Kyle has helped me rethink my whole approach to running and the enjoyment I get from it. Kyle works with me as a ‘virtual’ coach, but don’t be confused with some sites offering training plans. Kyle takes the time to work on a real-time basis, analysing, setting and adjusting weekly training to fit around my fitness and other work and life commitments. He is always there to talk through my progress and goals. More importantly Kyle has brought his relentless positivity, expertise and motivation that you hear on the TRS podcast to my own training! I’m never going to be a ‘competitive’ runner, but during my time with Kyle I’ve PB’d at every distance from the mile to the marathon - which has brought huge personal satisfaction and more importantly I’ve enjoyed it. I would highly recommend.

I could not recommend Kyle enough as a personal trainer. As a person who had decided to make a lifestyle change and get fit Kyle made what seemed like a gruelling task something I felt was really achievable. His approach to training really hits the mark in terms of motivation, he finds the right balance between assertiveness and support to help you reach your goals and keep you engaged throughout. Sessions were tailored to my level of fitness with steady improvements week on week to match my growing ability meaning every week I felt I had really achieved results both visibly and mentally.

I approached Kyle in relation to coaching almost 2 years ago and it’s been great. The results speak for themselves. When I began I was running 42 minute 10k’s and 20 minute(or thereabouts) 5k’s. With a coaching programme that took into account my job and new parental responsibilities I’ve been able to take significant chunks out of these times achieving a 10k best of 36:05 and a second place finish at Huntly 5k with 17:10. With his coaching there’s no reason why these times won’t fall further! The coaching is tailored and the support is invaluable! Top coach and a top guy!

Kyle helped me successfully complete the 2018 Dopey Challenge (5k,10k half and full marathon on consecutive days) from being a non-runner 15 months previously. His passion for running is obvious and he is always very positive and supportive and makes it seem fun. His training tips and recovery stretching advice were invaluable. I would highly recommend Kyle.
