Let me introduce myself

Hi, my name is Magnus Berntsson.  I am from Gothenburg, Sweden but have lived and worked in the UK for many years.  I originally studied Business Administration & Economics at The Gothenburg School of Economics and Commercial Law.  However, I have always participated in sports so a career change to personal training was a great choice for me.

These days I compete in triathlons and particularly like the Ironman event.  That’s 2.4-mile swim, a 112-mile bicycle ride and a marathon 26.2-mile run, raced in that order and without a break.

I am a fully qualified, experienced personal trainer, massage therapist and a member of REPS - the Register of Exercise Professionals and NRPT – the National Register of Personal Trainers. Read my qualification here.


I help my clients to get fit, stay healthy and lead more active lives.  I tailor fitness and nutrition programmes to suite your needs.  What's more, your training programme, though stretching, will be enjoyable and rewarding. And as you progress towards your goals, I will refine your programme so that it stays challenging.

I believe that regular physical activity leads to better health and improved wellbeing.    Today a high percentage of adults in England are overweight or obese. They are more likely to suffer from illnesses like heart disease and may have low self-esteem.  But if you take exercise and become fitter, you will: improve your health, look good and feel great!  It’s never too late to start - to change - to succeed!


I specialise in:

Most of my clients do a mix of these activities.  I offer advice on healthy eating, to build strength and lose weight.  A trained massage therapist, I also recommend regular massage, to relieve pain and improve circulation.  My rates are competitive.


I come to you, bringing all the equipment like weights that you’ll need.  I believe outdoor exercise – perhaps in your garden or a nearby park – is better and more enjoyable than a gym.  I work with clients within Derbyshire, South Yorkshire and Nottinghamshire. We cover the following areas:

Chesterfield, Dronfield, Sheffield, Rotherham, Worksop, Clay Cross, Alfreton, Mansfield, Nottingham, Derby, Ashbourne, Belper, Matlock, Darley Dale, Wirksworth, Bakewell, Baslow, Ashover, Hathersage, Buxton,
