Phil travels the world each year presenting cutting-edge educational seminars and workshops to the fitness community.

"Of all the fat loss seminars I've attended in recent years, Phil Learney's 'Fat loss and Performance' seminar was by far one of the best. Phil taught us how he uses basic and advanced nutrition and training tactics in order drop body fat and add muscle mass to his clients. I learnt a few tips from the weekend that I will be using with my clients immediately and believe that this seminar has been a quantum leap in my nutritional and training knowledge."

Phil is the consummate professional and knows his profession better than any individual I have come across.

Thank you for all your hard work and effort Phil.

I have been working with Phil for the last year and in that time his knowledge of nutrition and strength conditioning has helped propel me into the top 4 strength athletes in the world. Phil’s diet logs and support materials are invaluable in keeping me on track and allow me to maintain focus and closely monitor my nutrition whilst keeping up with a hectic training schedule. With Phil’s continued support I hope to progress further in my chosen sport.

Phil has helped me retain my world title and set the world squat record in squat of 462.5 kg at 47 years of age, and the British and European bench record of 305kg. At all times and in a variety of situations I have seen Phil train and coach a wide range of clients for a variety of goals in many interesting and innovative ways. Phil’s clients all achieve their goals if they stick to his plan, and he is without doubt the best personal trainer and coach I know.

and World Record Champion

Before meeting Phil I was extremely out of shape, looking back now I can’t believe how out of shape I was, I didn’t train or eat well.

Phil held a Fat Loss Seminar at my gym – the information he presented turned everything I thought about dieting for fat loss on its head. I’d been firmly in the low calorie, low fat brigade.

Everything Phil told us at that seminar made perfect sense and it was backed up with evidence of why it works. I made changes immediately – food types, meal frequency etc – and dropped 4lb in the first week.

How did I lose 8 Stone in 15 months? Simple! I hired one of the most knowledgeable, respected and committed trainers I have ever met. A trainer equally dedicated to helping you achieve your goals and dreams as you are.

As a result of this new lifestyle, I keep moving the goal posts and set myself once unrealistic goals now that I know anything is possible. Phil changed my life and helped me achieve my dream. I turned up for my wedding day in the best physical and aesthetic condition of my life. I will forever be indebted to him.”

— ANDREW XENIBusinessman and Entrepreneur

Phil encouraged me to take up powerlifting and with less than a year in the sport, I won the WPC World Powerlifting Championships in 2011.

Phil’s support has been invaluable and I cannot thank him enough.

In June I won the UKBFF MuscleTalk Championships and qualified for the UKBFF British Finals where I competed in the best possible shape I could have hoped for.

He is not only a great Coach but a fantastic man and I feel very lucky and blessed to have met him.

International Level Figure Competitor

I first met Phil back in 2005 and it was his words of wisdom that gave me the extra silver bullet needed for my last week prior to winning the 2005 Menshealth cover model competition.

I have worked within the Health and Fitness industry for over 10 years, and across many countries, and I have come across no-one better in this field.

As a trainer I have gained invaluable teaching methods and knowledge that I can pass onto my clients with successful results.”
