How can I help you improve your health?

My aim as a personal trainer is to help you reach your goals, increase confidence and make training enjoyable. I have great passion for helping others achieve their goals and see the benefits of exercise both physical and mental. Having studied sport psychology, I have learned about the potential challenges you may face and the solutions to help you work towards your goals whilst enjoying the process. I have great experience in training clients of all ages and abilities, so whether you are a beginner or someone with experience who is looking for improvements- I can help you!

What my Clients say:

“Getting myself back into the gym was something I was nervous and unsure about doing, but choosing James as my PT was the best decision! He made me feel very comfortable and confident from the very beginning, he tailored sessions to suit my needs and goals, whilst providing great support and motivation. I now have a different mind-set and feeling about the gym, in addition to having a structure I really enjoy and I am achieving my goals! I couldn’t recommend James as a PT or person enough . ”
