Let's get to know Barry at Kirkcaldy Gym

What made you want to become a gym instructor?

I have always been into Fitness since I was young, playing Football and Rugby for several years. During my high school work experience, I spent the week at a local gym. This sparked an interest in becoming a Gym and Studio instructor. I attended college for the appropriate courses. While attending, I had a part-time job to earn some money. When the courses were complete, there weren’t many full-time jobs available, so I stayed where I was employed and increased my hours. Over the years, while I continued to develop my skills with courses, I mostly did freelance or casual fitness jobs and didn’t take the leap to full-time Fitness work until last year.

What do you enjoy most about your job?

I enjoy meeting new people and building working relationships with members and staff. I enjoy helping people to achieve their goals. It is so rewarding to see people accomplish their aims and to help people to continue their fitness journey.

How can I help you?

I am always on hand to give advice and support on improving fitness, using the gym equipment, or setting goals. I have designed a number of programmes, but I would always adapt these to suit the member's needs and abilities.

Favourite training tip & quote

One fitness tip is to make sure you incorporate strength training into your workout routine. While cardio exercises like running and cycling are great for improving cardiovascular health and burning calories, strength training can help increase muscle mass, improve bone density, and boost your metabolism.

‘No one can do it for you but yourself – it's all about determination.’



Let's get to know Katerina at Kirkcaldy Gym

What made you want to become a gym instructor?

I have been involved in sports since I was a child. When I was 7 years old, I started doing figure skating and I spent 14 years of my childhood participating within this beautiful discipline at a national level. Ever since then my passion to maintain an active lifestyle through sport grew stronger. After completing my studies in sport management at the University of Ostrava, I found I could direct my passion for sports through exercise and fitness, so I became a gym instructor.

What do you enjoy most about your job?

Interacting with many different people with different sports and exercise experiences. It doesn’t matter if it is someone with no gym experience at all or someone trying to achieve their new PB, I love helping either group achieve their goals. And once they get there, it is very rewarding.

What’s the best gym-related advice you’ve been given?

Get moving; your body and mind will thank you for it.

What is your favourite way to train and why?

Nowadays I do most workouts mainly to get stronger, fitter, and healthier because exercise helps me reduce stress, keeps me motivated and gives me the energy to get through my busy day. With two little children, my training sessions look a little different than before. It can vary from a quick 15min home workout with very little equipment to an hour of gym session lifting heavier weights or doing cardio.

What’s your favourite motivational quote?

“Try, try again and never give up. You can achieve more than you think.” 



Let's get to know Mat at Kirkcaldy Gym

What made you want to become a gym instructor?

Since I was 15, I have loved using the gym. I wasn’t a fan of team sports so the individuality of only having to rely on myself and being able to train whenever I want has always appealed to me. Getting into this line of work made sense to me as it was something, I have always had an interest in, so I went to college to learn more and then put myself through courses to further my knowledge.

What do you enjoy most about your job?

Being able to chat with people about their training experiences, whether that be to share ideas or impart knowledge is very rewarding.

What’s the best gym-related advice you’ve been given?

Technique is King.

What is your favourite way to train and why?

I mainly like to train with elements from bodybuilding and powerlifting so I can focus on size and strength, but I also enjoy adding in some Olympic lifting to improve power.

What’s your favourite motivational quote?

Momento Mori.

You can also park for free at the railway station if required which again is a 10-minute walk to the centre. There are a number of pay and display ticket car parks adjacent to the centre which are a 5 minute walk away.

Further coaching may be required on subsequent visits depending on the gym location and number of stations.
