Tim Silvester

In 2013 I started Get Coached as a platform for my Personal Training business based in the West of Scotland.

With over 30 years spent within the Health & Fitness industry as a gym instructor, gym manager, strength & conditioning coach, and personal trainer you can see there is a wealth of experience and knowledge here.

I wanted to help more people live healthy and active lives and with that in mind I started publishing a blog including educational posts, workouts, programme plans and lifestyle support.

A family man who loves to spend time with my wife and daughter, eating out and reading up on the latest health & fitness topics, I also like a bit of Sci-Fi too.

What My Clients Are Saying

I've trained with Tim for over 3 years now. He has helped me improve my fitness, mobility and most importantly my strength. I am continuing to gain in all these areas with his help and guidance. He is a really nice, approachable guy with a great knowledge base.

I have been training with Tim for over a year now. I knew straight away that he was a dedicated professional. He has helped me to achieve goals I never thought possible with a tailored training plan and regular coaching. I feel so much healthier, fitter and stronger. He is extremely knowledgeable and has taught me so much in a relatively short space of time. He is very friendly, patient and understanding.

I’ve been training with Tim for over 3 years, he has continually encouraged me to get out of my comfort zone to achieve my goals.

I wanted to gain strength but was scared of the free weights area. From the start Tim made me feel at ease and my strength and confidence has improved massively. He believes in me more than I believe in myself which pushes me to lift heavier and finish that last set of burpees!

I can honestly say that choosing to PT with Tim was one of the best decisions I have ever made. He has so much knowledge to share with his clients and goes above and beyond to help everyone achieve their goals.
