About John?

Hi. My name is John and I am the owner of John Bernard Personal Training and JBPT Studio's right here in the heart of Edinburgh, originally from Edinburgh it has always been a dream of mine to own my own studio in my home city and use my passion for my industry to help shape and mold peoples life for the better.


Even as a young child, I was very active in sports. My happy childhood and teenage years were shaped by many different sports from football to swimming. In my school years I was always interested in physical education (P.E) and looked forward to it every week, this love for the subject carried on into high school where I studied it further in more depth for 5 years and then 3 years further at college making it my passion.

After having successfully completed my studies I have worked in top corporate gyms and 5* hotels allowing me to know the real meaning of quality service and its having learnt those skills I was able to develop into the trainer I am today and use them to apply the same ethos and quality to my studio.

For the past 6 years now, I have been working as an independent professional trainer and have worked along sides such companies as David Lloyd, Waldorf Astoria Hotels and Queen Margaret University. I enjoy every minute of PT and the freedom of being my own boss which gives me the time needed to focus on every client, I follow one main rule in every session I take, Laughter is the fuel for success, fitness should be fun and you should enjoy it like anything else in your life you want to see success from!  I will always have a laugh and allow you to feel as comfortable as possible!


I hope to hear from you soon and that your first steps into your fitness journey will be through the doors of John Bernard Personal Training.
