Following a 9 year career as a chef, I retrained in 2011 as a fully qualified fitness instructor and personal trainer. With a lifetime of passion for fitness and sports it was the right change of career for me; knowing I would be able to use my experience and knowledge as a chef alongside my love and passion for fitness. 

It is important to focus on your diet as well as the right training. So as your personal trainer I will ensure you get the very best from each workout, tailoring the session around you and offering the support, advice and inspiration you need to keep you motivated. I specialise in all areas of fitness including weight loss as well as weight gain advice, up-to-date health and fitness guidance, injury rehabilitation, sports training, core and strength training. 

I offer individual training sessions at St Ives Leisure Centre in Cornwall – so get in touch with me today, I would love to hear from you.

I have had the immense pleasure in watching James grow from being a new lifter in the gym, right through to the very successful and very sought after fitness professional that he is today. His drive to support you in your quest for physical, mental and emotional development can only be matched by his thorough, supportive, professional nature. I would like to take this opportunity to encourage you to spoil yourself and hire James as your own personal fitness coach and I can also assure you, once you have started on that journey with James, you will never look back!!”  Matt Roberts

“I’ve been training with James for at least 5 years and I’m probably the only person going on 73 that can do all that I can do and it’s all because of James. Yes, he is strict, but that’s why we have him as our personal trainer; someone who is not going to let you get away with being lazy. I look forward to my Tuesday & Thursday training days. Thanks so much for keeping me healthy, fit and younger than my age James.”  Sree Jackson

“Fantastic personal trainer. Really enjoy the training and get so much from it!”  Margaret Hall
