My Story.

Who Am I?

Most pertinently I'm the founder of LazenbyPT which I established in Edinburgh in 2008 with the intention of becoming firmly established as one of the city's premier providers of bespoke personal training products. I'm very proud to say that I've achieved this but I'm not stopping here, as I think my recent affiliation with MP Performance Elite clearly shows!

What Do I Do?

I inspire, educate and empower people, enabling them to quite literally recreate themselves, mentally and physically. While I still think of myself as a certified personal trainer I think I'm better described as a personal training & fitness coach as my programs take your whole personality into account and are designed to not only to improve your fitness levels and get you in great shape but to enhance every aspect of your life!

I gained my first certification way back in 1989 and got my start in the industry working at Bodyworld Health Club as a fitness instructor, receptionist and general gopher! Since then I've trained countless clients of all ages from all walks of life, hand written over 300 fitness programs for a website project with Mike Pratt, competed as a bodybuilder and showered with Arnold Schwarzenegger; all the while relentlessly striving to improve my physique!

I Love Weight Training!

While I've worked with competitive athletes of both sexes and highly paid corporate professionals, the vast majority of my clients have been 'regular' people with regular jobs who just wanted to look and feel better. Indeed, I started out as decidedly regular myself. I wasn't a natural athlete. I was overweight in my early teens and while I loved playing football, my enthusiasm far outstripped my ability and I never made the team. I was 14 when my Dad encouraged me to join a local gym and though I didn't know it then it was the start of a lifelong passion.

In my enthusiasm I read everything I could about training and nutrition and overloaded myself with information! My naturally anxious disposition didn't help matters either, rendering me prone to over analysis and leading to years of little progress.

In my opinion Matt Lazenby is categorically the number one personal trainer in Edinburgh. I have had him as a student of my training principles for over 20 years and without hesitation I can honestly say that he has taken this knowledge and added it to his own passion, drive and diligence to become a very accomplished personal trainer in his own right.
Mike Pratt

Working with elite performance coach and celebrity fitness trainer Mike Pratt changed all of that. In my opinion, and that of many others, Mike is one of the world's leading performance coaches and with his guidance I learnt to train effectively and finally started to see the results I'd been striving for for so long! My physique improved dramatically and this lead to me competing as a bodybuilder; it still took many years of hard work and dedication though, even with a coach as talented as Mike in my corner!

My own training has taken on a whole new lease of life of late; I did my first professional photo shoot at the ripe old age of 48 with the internationally reknown Chris Bailey of Bailey Image in August 2015 and I loved every minute of the experience! I suspect it's not the last time I'll be in front of a camera either, I think I've got a few good years left yet!

Some Random Facts About Me

I'm generally thoughtful, introspective, upbeat and happy. I strive to agitate myself daily in the interests of personal development; I'm fascinated with how the mind works, and how we quite literally create much of our reality ourselves with our own thoughts.

I love cold water and coffee, cheesecake and chocolate brownies, steak, pizza and eating out. Real ale and single malts. Graveyards and ruins, art galleries and museums. And libraries, I love reading. And fireworks. And travelling, though I've not done anywhere near as much as I'd like recently, and lost civilizations, miniatures and models, early mornings and the dark. I've gotten to like the summer over the last few years although Autumn firmly remains my favourite season! I play MTGO Online to express my inner nerd, meditate when the mood takes me and recently started practicing yoga under the watchful guidance of international yoga teacher Jacinta McBurney.

Like most everyone else I love a good movie and I like all manner of music from rock to pop to ambient to classical and back again though for reasons I'm not entirely sure about I hardly ever listen to it; apart from at the gym where my playlists are generally filled with 80's hair metal anthems!

All in all, I think life's pretty amazing! I'm blessed to call some of the most amazing people I've ever met my friends and family, enjoy robust health and at 49 I’m still in an almost constant state of awe at the wonder of creation!

Matt is one of the most enthusiastic, encouraging and knowledgeable personal trainers I have ever come across. Despite the fact my body decided to "misbehave", Matt has never given up on me, and has tailored programmes to get me where I need to be. What he doesn't know about nutrition, quite frankly isn't worth knowing, and I enjoy the fact that he doesn't pander whenever someone "cheats"; whether that be regarding eating clean or not putting 100% effort into every set. He will simply tell you that the only person you are cheating is yourself, and of course, he is absolutely right. He's not about toning up, building a ton of muscle or losing a bit of weight (depending on what it is you're looking to achieve) as a short term measure - it's about changing your lifestyle and being stronger and healthier. I cannot recommend Matt highly enough; he will get you the results you want and the tools you need to achieve your goals for life.

Real Results For Real People!

Training ~ The Wonder of Weights

Weights are far and away the best tools for changing your physique; indeed the most unique aspect of weight training is it's capacity for changing the way someone looks. Another wonderful and often overlooked benefit is weight trainings capacity to improve your ability to perform simple everyday tasks from carrying the shopping, to going up the stairs, to mowing the lawn!

There are so many other well documented health benefits, ranging from improved bone density to improved mental health that it's no wonder weight training is considered to be the most beneficial overall form of exercise. I love weight training and I'd go so far as to say that everyone can benefit from regular weight training!
