James Wootton

HEAD COACH & OWNER

There's so many trainers out there, how do you know if I'm the right one for you?

I've got over 6 years of personal training experience which I combine with my background in pharmaceuticals to give a very holistic, science based approach to getting results. It's not just about that one hour PT session. It's about ensuring nutrition, sleep, stress-management and health are all pointing the right way.

I appreciate that 90% of people have got real lives with obstacles and commitments. Some of my biggest transformations have been with clients who are busy Mums, CEO's, people who commute 2 hours a day and just your average joe. It's not always realistic to eat chicken and rice 5 times a day (or enjoyable!) My approach ensures you can reach your goal in a way where it'll become enjoyable and a part of your life, rather than a chore.

From a young age I have always been involved in fitness and competing in various sports, Including the GB youth American Football team. In my free time now I play cricket, love travelling, and expanding my health/fitness/nutrition knowledge with seminars, books and podcasts.

In 2016 competed on stage in a men's physique show and underwent a huge body transformation, purely to put myself in my clients' shoes. I've always lifted weights but I felt it was important to understand what it's like to have to change your daily habits and change your diet to create a physical transformation. It's given me huge empathy to understand how clients are feeling when they're working towards their goals.

 

My commitment to you

  • Everything I programme will be backed by science – no fad diets/Instagram novelty workouts

  • I will always stay in my line – I will always refer out for anything that I’m not qualified to advise on – e.g. certain injuries/eating disorders

  • Guarantee an open & honest two way line of communication. We're in this together and I'll always listen to feedback
