He said: "This is a great opportunity for five readers to join me over the coming weeks in a series of training sessions.

"I spend most of my time working closely with individuals developing exercise and nutritional plans based on their aims and goals.

"It is so important that you try to eat a diet which compliments your exercise program."

What the offer consists of:

* 1 x 30 min individual strategy session

* 2 x group training sessions per week

* 4 weekly fitness testing

* The group training will last for 12 weeks.

Gary has been actively involved in the fitness industry since 2006.

He has progressed from fitness instructing to personal training and athletics coaching.

Gary Goldie:

“The personal training industry is always moving forward and new ideas are always developing.

"I enjoy blending these new ideas with the solid foundations of some of the more traditional types of exercise to promote an enjoyable but taxing workout."

His qualifications are endorsed by Fitness Professionals at Level 3 and include advanced cardiovascular training and advanced resistance training.

He is also trained in back care and core stability, nutrition and weight management.

Gary also holds a UKA Athletics coach licence.

Watch: Week 3 - Gary takes a walk in the park to get fit.

Watch: Week 2 - Gary tests out exercise equipment on the Kelvin Walkway.

He says: "Areas of particular interest to me are running, post-natal exercise and suspension training.

"I use the TRX training system to design a great resistance work out which is very specific to the individual."

Gary adds: “The personal training industry is always moving forward and new ideas are always developing.

"I enjoy blending these new ideas with the solid foundations of some of the more traditional types of exercise to promote an enjoyable but taxing workout.

"With so many new ideas and different approaches there is a level of exercise open to everyone no matter what level of fitness or activity.

Watch: Week 1 - Personal trainer Gary Goldie demonstrates simple step exercises.

"The range of clients that I am working with is expanding all the time and currently ranges from 14-85 years old.

"These films with Glasgow West End Today should have given readers a taster of the range of disciplines and areas covered as part of the training."
