Sam Barnes


I'm Sam Barnes. Online coach, personal trainer and founder of Self-Made Coaching, based here in the UK. 

In 2018 I had a vision to help as many Transgender individuals around the globe as I possibly could. During this time, I've had the honour of working with some incredible individuals. From the clients I've coached, to the educators and fellow professionals I've worked alongside.

I'm able to use my personal journey as a way to relate to each client I work with. I began my transition in 2014, and I know first hand how challenging that process can be. For me, the one consistent part to my life over those years was the gym. I was able to take control of certain parts of my body, and use my time working out to switch off from the world. 

If you're looking to make a positive change, and get in shape with someone who understands, let's chat some more.
