Training with James has been a wonderful experience and a real boost on my journey back to fitness and health. In fact I would say, I wouldn't have got started and kept going if it hadn't been for him. I chose James because of his knowledge of nutrition in relation to the metabolism as I have a metabolic condition which makes it hard for me to lose weight.
James has always been encouraging with my weight loss even on weeks when I haven't done so well, and during the training sessions, he has continually encouraged me and pushed my boundaries both physically as to what I thought I could achieve and to help me work on my mental resistance. No two workouts have ever been the same and they never have been boring or easy! I love James' gentle but firm approach and his easy going manner as well as his consummate professionalism. I've really enjoyed working with him and I have no hesistation in thoroughly recommended him.
As someone who doesn't usually enjoy exercise, I find it easy training with James. He motivates and inspires me and I keep coming back...only happy customers return!.
I love training with James. He's helped me with developing more strength, flexibility and mental well-being. I like his clear, concise and understanding approach. He's very encouraging and helpful. My strength has improved, my flexibility bettered and my peace of mind has increased. I would recommend him for the effective holistic approach he provides.
I have really enjoyed training with James. He is always positive and encouraging. The 1:1 nature of the sessions really pushes you to reach your potential. He uses a range of activities to keep the sessions varied and challenging. Sophie Harmer-Knight
I found James when I was looking for a PT to help me get fit for a major operation. James was brilliant and built me up from struggling with a one minute 'run' to around 4k on our last session. The next day was my op and I woke up, donned my kit and smashed a 5k run; I went to the hospital feeling completely invincible and I'm sure its is this positivity that aided my speedy recovery. I love running on my own, it is my time and space in an otherwise hectic day, but I needed help with motivation as i had given up following my first C25K success and needed a bit of encouragement to get back into - James was excellent. He knew when and how to distract my fatigued brain to help me stick with each increasingly longer run and I still use these mental queues now. James has a wide breadth of knowledge about all things fitness so the sessions were never tedious and I'm hoping to start again soon to work on speed and hill training. Five stars!
The training has benefited me a lot and helped me become a better person. James works me hard and helps me push through a lot of barriers I want to overcome. I will continue the enjoyable and hard training to achieve more in my life.
I've been working with James for a while on Boxercise, running and weight training. It has helped me with my confidence, self-esteem and well-being. I feel stronger for doing the training. Thanks James for training me.
I've been training with James for 3 years now and I've noticed a difference in my walking, balance and mobility. I feel a stronger person because of the commitment to the training. I enjoy the boxercise, weight training and yoga. I can now walk up my stairs after a few years of not being able to. I'm getting a lot of benefits from the regular training and enjoy the sessions.
I enjoy the training with James. We have trained at my home, in the local park and in the Lickey Hills. It's helped my upper body and lower body strength. It's helped me improve my balance, prevent more falls and given me strength. It has also helped me be more confident in my life.
