I have my own nutrition template and coaching experience I take all clients through. We then mould their lifestyle and preferences around this whereby sustainability, enjoyment and health/ training results are concerned.

No special equipment is required for at home workouts.

Before entering into a contract with a personal trainer you should check their booking, payment, cancellation and refund  policy.

Additional Information

Personal training styles and methods of training differ from one client to the next. Ruri will adapt his training style based on your needs, requirements and of course what you feel comfortable with.

Ruri's Reviews & Success Stories

Great few months training and more to come!

Training with Ruairidh is so much fun. His knowledge is the best I’ve come across in the 4 years I’ve been in the UAE. In each personal trainer session Ruairidh keeps me motivated and on my toes. Training five sessions a week I was unsure whether I’d be kept focused but each session is a challenge and I love setting PB’s with Ruairidh. I have seen great changes over the past few months both physically and mentally. Ruairidh is also very knowledgeable when it comes to nutrition and is the first personal trainer who has told me not to ‘diet’ but eat in moderation. It’s through this concept that I have stayed focused and not been running to the chocolate cupboard. I could not recommend Ruairidh enough, whether it’s to lose weight or build muscle. I’ve had a great few months and looking forward to many more challenges and changes ahead.

Changed my views about exercise and training

I have been personally training with Ruairidh in Dubai for over a year now and my fitness levels and strength have significantly improved. Ruairidh is a knowledgable, enthusiatic and really believes in what he is doing. That enthusiasm and belief really rubs off, making training sessions really enjoyable and fun. Before i met Ruairidh, i wouldn’t have called myself a dedicated gym user, however, now i really enjoy going to the gym and get disappointed if i miss a workout! Its a really good feeling finishing a workout and knowing your improving.
Ivan Williams – Ruairidh's Personal Training Client

I've come such a long way in a year

Personal Training with Ruairidh is simply just fun. Its basically training with a friend that knows everything there is to know about fitness. He immediately puts you at ease, explains the reasonings behind every exercise and educates you on about every kind of stretch there is. Over the past year personally training with Ruairidh, I have come a long way. Ive noticed some major changes in my body and more importantly a massive improvement in my strength. I honesty couldn’t ask for a better personal trainer in Dubai.
Dubai Personal Trainer Client Farah Mehdi

Seeing great physique changes

Training with PT Ruairidh over the past few months has been fantastic. I have always been extremely injury prone which has held back my fitness levels over the past few years. Ruairidh’s incredible amount of insight on training and nutrition makes each session fun, interesting and even, educational. He has a great way of keeping you motivated and knowing when to push you in order to get the best out of your session. This has allowed me to work around my past injury problems whilst increasing my strength, fitness and seeing some great physique changes. Despite undergoing reconstructive knee surgery, i am now squatting, dead-lifting and carry more weight during strength sessions than ever before. As a Dubai personal trainer, I strongly recommend Ruairidh. What impressed me most is how quickly and effectively he managed to change and adapt training sessions to fit my capabilities and problems.
Dubai Personal Trainer Client 'David McBain'

Finding Ruairidh was a life turning point for me

I was alarmed when my doctor first told me that I had to lose 10kgs. I didn’t want to get into any kind of FAD diet plans as I wanted results that would last. I knew this couldn’t be achieved alone. That is when I found Revolution Fitness Dubai. Training with personal trainer Ruairidh was a life turning point for me. He had a game plan set for me and journey started. In no time, we had results! Results were gradual but realistic for once. I am so glad I met Ruairidh because not only was he a fantastic trainer who is extremely passionate about his work but an awesome mentor into the world of Fitness & nutrition. His expertise and dedication got me motivated and I would look forward to each session. My perception about healthy eating, nutrition and fitness completely changed. I do not have enough words to recommend Ruairidh as a personal trainer in Dubai, he is the best!
NIsha John – A Personal Trainer Client From Dubai

Customised training which worked for me

Training with Ruairidh is an education in all things health and fitness. His enthusiasm to share his knowledge and to learn more is infectious! In understanding how each exercise affects your body physically, he can taper a programme to suit you. Ive been personally training with Ruairdh for over 18 months and have seen improvements in body composition, strength , flexibility, conditioning and my all round general health has improved immensely. Unlike many other trainers, Ruairidh is incredibly conscious of ensuring the body is prepared to exercise and each session begins and ends with specific warm-ups, stretching, mobility work and foam rolling. I’ve had a few personal trainers over the years and Ruairidh is without doubt the best.
Victoria Brownhill

A great trainer with great knowledge

Ruairidh has helped me break the cycle of bad habits. I started with weight loss as the primary goal, but then found a new pleasure in improving my performance and breaking personal bests almost every session. My running performance nearly doubled in two months! I always leave the sessions with more understanding of nutrition facts, physiology and injury prevention.Thank you for that achievement in such a short time. Ill always look forward to that high five at the end of each session.
