Why hire an online personal trainer?

Whether you need an online personal trainer, personal nutrition coach or habit coach, more and more people are hiring online PTs nowadays. Why? Because the effectiveness of online coaching has finally been recognised:

Better value

More cost-effective. In addition to paying an in person personal trainer for their time, you also pay for gym overheads. You can get better support at a fraction of the price by working with an online personal trainer.

Better choice

Can now work with the best practitioner for you. With no geographical restrictions, you can now seek out and find ‘the best’ practitioner to work with him or her leading to more trust in the process, better adherence, and better results.

Better support

Stronger accountability and support. We are no longer limited to our appointment, I can offer you better support all day, every day – far beyond the limited support I could offer you in a weekly appointment. This has led to better client experience and results.

24/7 access

Free online personal trainer app to track progress: A nice tool for you is the ability for you to see stats, track progress, and communicate with me in real-time.

The convenience of an online peronal fitness trainer

When you work with an online personal trainer, you no longer have to go into a gym or a physical location.

For some people, gyms are uncomfortable environments, and they aren’t always located conveniently.

In addition, with online coaching scheduling becomes a non-issue. If you work regular hours, booking in with a trainer from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. can be a headache.

A strict appointment time puts undue pressure on you as a client. It’s frustrating to show up at 6:35 p.m, 5 minutes late for an appointment because of traffic, and miss out on part of your workout that you paid for.

Sadly, there’s a lot of variance in the health and fitness industry. Not all in person or online personal trainers are good. Working with a Precision Nutrition Coach means you can be confident you'll well looked after, and you can now refer to friends and family who may have had a previous bad experience to a great trainer because the location is no longer a factor.



The most effective and life-changing health experience I’ve had.

With Nico’s help and guidance I’ve improved my mobility, lost weight, redefined my relationship with food and started making the right health and well-being choices. All without pain, or feeling deprived.

His techniques are simple, and it’s all stuff you know already – no special requirements, equipment or fads. Highly recommend.

This is not a bootcamp or quick fix

If you're serious about creating long term change you can sustain then I'm serious about helping you achieve it.

I can't help you if you want an online PT who puts you through your paces, overhauls your diet on day one, and gives you crazy workouts that you'll dread, then berrates you when you 'fail'.

If that's what you're looking for then you're in the wrong place and there are plenty on other online fitness coaches who will sell you the dream and do that for you.

But that's not coaching, and sadly most people need to experience that approach (often time and again for years on end) in order to finally understand why results are only short lived.  

If this sounds familiar, this is no fault of yours, and you should be proud of yourself for trying things out. The health and fitness industry will sell you the dream, backed up with the relentless bombardment of ''social proof'' you get subjected to, it is no wonder you end up blaming yourself for ''failing''.

But this is important to you!

And by picking yourself up and trying again you are demonstrating tenacity, and showing how serious you are about your goal - be it losing weight, getting fitter, being a great role model for your kids, having more energy, having confidence.

Whaterver your goal is, your repeated attempts to achieve it show resilience and tenacity, and you should feel proud that even now you're seeking a solution - many people would have given up.

Because of this journey you've experienced, you're probably now ready to take a new approach in order to achieve long term change in the areas of your health, fitness, and at the same time augment your relationships and career as your energy spills over into these areas. And you're in the right place!

Ultimately, long term change is going to take a new approach, and you need to be ''coachable'', adopt a humble beginner's mindset and be willing to focus on the 'process'.

Focusing on gradually implementing new habits or daily practices is how change happens, and when you become focused on the change (habits), that is when long term and life changing results come.

This means a habit based approach works. Having an online personal trainer to coach you and hold you accountable, tune into your motivations, keep your focused and troubleshoot any sticking points really gets results. 

In addition to this, following a system is crucial. That's why I offer a habit coaching ''curriculum'' that has been proven to help busy professionals confidently achieve their health and fitness goals even when life is hectic.

This is the difference between ''habit based coaching'' which is a good start but may not get results, and systemised client centred outcome based coaching which ensures your success.

Core Values

These values underpin your online personal training plan:

Way Of Life

Great nutrition will provide an improved body composition, health and performance.

Nutrient Density

Great nutrition will provide nutrient density.


Great nutrition is honest, outcome based, and sustainable for you and the planet.

Jeremy Lost 8.5kg (18.7lbs)

I have learnt that 'imperfect action' does work.

I've not put any pressure on myself, but have unconsciously and sometimes consciously applied some of whast you guided me through previously and I am proud that on the 1st of January 2021 I weighed in at 96.4kg and on the 1st of march, I weighed in at 87.9 kg.

I not only have I made progress, but in my eyes, good progress and it hasn't felt chore some or painful.

There's still a way to go, but I'm happy about this, and hopefully, you will recognise that you played a part in this achievement, so thank you.

How much protein do we need to lose weight and gain muscle, as well as achieving optimal health? The three main macronutrients are protein, fats and carbohydrates, with ‘macro’ simply meaning large, and these are the nutrients that are most common in our diet. On the flipside, micronutrients are those that are in much lower quantities

I’d developed some bad nutrition habits and your ad sounded like a good fit.

What results have you achieved since starting the program?

Lost 9lbs on the first 8 weeks of the program followed by 7lbs in a month or so since, down a clothes size, and doing daily exercise.

What do you like best about working with a nutrition coach?

Nico had some great ideas of very easy to make changes with a big impact.

I love the habits, and in general liked the approach of only making changes that I’m confident I can keep up forever.

These new habits are really effective and have inspired me to plan to lose a significant amount of weight.

What would you say to someone who is sitting on the fence about joining the program?

The program can be as easy as you want it to be, and has the potential to be a real turning point in personal fitness.

Nico helped me identify a number of really quick wins to make big difference from making very small changes.

I’d say it was well worth it.

Is there is anything else you would like to add?

Thanks Nico! I’m pretty confident that I’m going to carry on with all the new habits and have a new target of 11stone (3st 13lbs off starting weight).

Tell us a little about your background

23, full time IT student, part time working in IT operations. I have “light” cerebral palsy and a sedatary lifestly with no previous exercises.

What made you decide to work with a nutrition coach?

I gained some weight back during the Covid gurantine times and decided I was looking for something more personal than an app. I was skeptical of an online approach, but open to it and I was really impressed by the initial call.

What results have you achieved since starting the program?

I have lost roughly 7% of my weight in the last 3 months, built quite a few new habits, imrpoved my overall relationship with food and increased my physical activiy. Overall I’d say that with Nico’s help I have taken more action in the last 3 months than the previous year or two.

What do you like best about working with a nutrition coach?

3 things:

The level of personalization,
the imperfect action philosophy (which gets suprisingly good results)
and how to the point everything is

What would you say to someone who is sitting on the fence about joining the program?

Get on a call with Nico. Going through this program can be on your schedule, but it still takes work to change your habits., so schedule your call and see if you are in the right spot, if you are, then absolutely go for it.
