Work with James

WHY IS ONLINE COACHING BETTER FOR YOU?

Don’t get me wrong I’m as passionate at coaching people in the gym as I am online, but I can reach a lot more people online and offer better accountability as well as making it more affordable. I’ve helped people all over the world to achieve the health and fitness level they’ve always wanted without spending hours in the gym.

THIS IS NOT An “ONE SIZE FITS ALL”

I don’t give out generic plans, no one client is the same. You all lead very different lifestyles and present different challenges. It all starts with me listening to you and understanding what is really getting in the way.

Together we start to remove each road block and it all starts to finally come together.

 

WHAT ARE SOME OF THE COACHING TECHNIQUES YOU’LL BENEFIT FROM?

Hormonal analysis, stress management, fitness and nutrition programming, time management, posture correction, exclusive training app, Live webinars with Q and A sessions, Educational sessions and access to the personal video library.

 

HOW DOES ONLINE COACHING WORK?

With the advancement in technology and the power of the internet, all you need is a free skype account, and the use of a pc, smart phone or iPad.

This is not some automated programme, every workout is delivered to you via the internet with visual access to exercise demonstrations, so you can watch all the movements at your convenience. Workouts are delivered using advanced personal training software specifically designed to track and monitor your progress.

Constant reviews and contact via email and Skype, so you’ll always have the opportunity to ask questions while reaching out for motivation and personal development.

I am always accountable to my clients, as without you I wouldn’t be able to live through my passion of helping optimize fat loss.

 

WHY IS ONLINE COACHING THE IDEAL SOLUTION FOR YOU?

Firstly it is more affordable, personal training can be quiet expensive and hard to find the hours in the week to dedicate time for the gym, I’m proud to say I can offer to coach at a fraction of the cost of face to face personal training.

I work around you: When you’re busy with life it’s difficult and it’s hard to commit time to meet your trainer at the gym, that’s why I use time management strategies built around you, together we will devise training times that can easily be done at your home, gym or both.

Find your “Fit” time: You will access to your programme at all times if you want to work out in a gym or at home that’s fine too. Or you might want to do both then that’s great. I help you devise a plan that allows you get your workouts in the most effective way so it doesn’t eat into your day.

Online benefits: With online training you’ll have access to a wide variety of resources that adds loads of value, for example, imagine getting access to your own private tutor at the click of a button where you get research based honest answers to help you understand all the ins and outs of all that crazy information out there.

IS ONLINE COACHING FOR YOU?

Are you sick and tired of being unhealthy?
Is stress getting you down?

Over the years your fitness and health have declined.

You’re serious about working together and putting a step by step action plan in place and if you can identify with any of these barriers then connect with me to discuss where we go from here.

NB. I’m proud to say I’ve never been asked for a refund, but look, I understand that you may be hesitant if you’ve had a bad experience elsewhere. That’s why if you’ve found after 30 days that you and I are not a good fit, I’ll personally refund you, simply email REFUND and I’ll ping it right back in your account. No explanation needed!

All I ask is that we work as a team.

If you have any further questions that you want to be answered, then don’t hold back! contact me today.

My issues with self-worth/body imagery

You wouldn’t think I had these issues would you, as I come across as quite the confident person.

However, I did. The 2 incidences that come to mind would be as a teenager and a young child. I’ll go back to the beginning for those of you that might have either not seen or read my story on my website. I was born with a disability called femoral dysplasia of the left as well as having a floating hip.

In all reality, I shouldn’t be able to walk due to the number of bones that I am missing in that leg, however, my parents never told me what the doctors had said to them when I was a young child. So growing up I was no different to any other able-bodied child albeit the physical differences. Yes, it probably did take me longer to learn to walk and with the aid of a walker, but I got there in the end.

So now let me get to the first incidence where the issues of body imagery came up would have been when I was a young child, yes I know I was different – but where I struggled I think looking back would have to be able explaining my disability.

The other incidence would have been as a teenager, where I would hide my disability by wearing long trousers in the warmer months of the year instead of shorts. But it hit me one day that the only person I was impacting on was myself.

Yes, society has become obsessed to some degree with what others think of them, I too was probably a victim of that in my younger self.

But what people should really be concerned with is what they think of themselves. Neither of those incidences occurs in my adult life, now I’ll be in shorts all the time weather dependent and I don’t mind people asking questions about my disability.

What others have said:

 

Alan Caron: “I worked with James in the lead up to the European Championships in 2015. I can say I thoroughly enjoyed it and the training increased my strength and endurance to play wheelchair rugby league for Wales.”

 

“Before coming to work with James, I was struggling to balance a busy lifestyle with good nutrition and training. I previously always just learned things online through my own research. The results I achieved were that; I was able to have a good understanding of how to have a sustainable plan around a busy lifestyle and the importance of eating the right foods and doing the right exercises. The best thing about training with James was; I was able to ask him any questions literally 24/7 and there were regular interesting nutrition and fitness articles posted on social media. The benefits I’ve enjoyed as a result of working with James are an overall increased knowledge in fitness and nutrition, I tried out more healthy recipes and had the motivation to stick to something more long term.”

“I would say that if you are looking for a great, expert personal service then James is definitely right for you. When looking to make positive lifestyle changes then this really is essential to have a good relationship with your coach, so I would definitely recommend James.” Matt Pyke, former player for British Basketball League’s Cheshire Pheonix and now business owner of Fly High Media.

 

Zak Jones: “Before working with James, I was looking to find an effective workout routine and style that I could do despite being paralyzed and bound to a wheelchair. My previous experience was training in the hospital after my accident.

Some of the results of working with James were; I learned a lot about nutrition and different exercises I could achieve despite my disability. I also gained muscle mass, stamina, and confidence. James is a good motivator and was always good at getting me to keep going past that point where you want to stop. After every workout, I could feel a nice healthy ‘burn’ in the areas we had decided to target. Additionally, the benefits I’ve enjoyed as a result are; I feel more confident in the gym, I have more knowledge on how to use the equipment effectively, more knowledgeable on nutrition as part of personal fitness and lastly but not least I’m more confident in terms of body image.
 
I would definitely recommend working with James, he has an easy going personality that is easy to get along with but he’s no pushover in terms of the workload. If you like to be pushed, he’s your man.”

Here are some transformations that people had following James’ training methods and guidance:

Chris Linnitt: “Before I started working with James, I had had no guidance on nutrition and found it difficult to get motivated. Furthermore, a very long time ago I worked with an able-bodied trainer and that was only for 6 weeks as he let me down. So I somewhat lost trust with the fitness industry; however, James was very professional and courteous on a consultation call to discuss where I was at, what goals I wanted to achieve and in what time frame before even mentioning the price of his services. The results I have achieved whilst working with him are that my muscles have become more toned and I have lost weight at the same time. Furthermore, James has taught me to be mindful and take things slow and steady as opposed to thinking I want this as quick as possible. Keep at the training, it will work eventually. One of the best things since working with him is that more people have been paying me compliments. Additionally, some of the benefits I have felt are that I am feeling a lot healthier, I’m getting fitter with every month that has passed, and my sleeping is much improved.  Work with James, He does what he says and is very reasonably priced.”

Testimonials from 7-day challenges:

Ali Jones: “Previously, I struggled with food choices and balance, I found I was eating way too many carbs at the wrong times. I’ve tried all the fad diets, none of them works and they are just expensive. The results of working with James is that I lost 4lbs on the 7-day challenge, and the best thing about it was I was able to make the choices on what to eat and the times that suit me too, thus making me feel in control. Some of the benefits; I’ve enjoyed eating better, sleeping better and I was better at my job as I didn’t feel lethargic or tired at any point. I would recommend people to James as he know what he’s talking about and have qualifications to back up his knowledge and I like that he uses peer-reviewed articles, it’s proven by science, not a celebrity. He was there 100% of the time for the support and no question was ever deemed a stupid question.”
