Robert MacGillivray

Hi, I'm Robert, one of the Personal Trainers here at PureGym Motherwell.

It all started as an interest around ten years ago and since then I have gained an extensive bout of knowledge in specific training methods, nutrition and detailed exercise routines. 
In 2015, I competed in my first competition - the UKBFF Scottish championships in Paisley. I finished 4th, just missing out on a place at British finals. This gave me the drive to want to help you reach your goals, whether they are to be "stage ready" or just "beach body ready". I am certain I can get you into the shape you have always wanted to be!

In 2018, I competed in the PCA, Scottish Championships and finished 3rd place - this gave me an invite to the British Finals against the best in Britain. This highlighted a true passion for me and gave me in depth knowledge on how to apply scientific training and nutritional methods to myself and to clients!

As your Personal Trainer, I strive to give 110%. You will have 24/7 support from myself which will be in your preferred method, whether that be emails, phone calls or text messages. You will receive a tailor-made exercise regime to follow as well as a nutrition plan - both will be amended as we reach the goals that we both agree on.

Come and say hi to me, even if it's just for a chat!
