What got me into fitness?
April 2021 Started at Snap Fitness in Whangarei, as Personal trainer, this was a great experience for me, the team at Snap are fantastic, unfortunately it was becoming to much being a stay at home dad working part time and running my coaching from the gym, so i decided to move away from snap and continue training from home to give me more flexibility in what I could offer my clients this also allowed me to completing more studying into menu and meal planning.
April 2018 moved to Otangarei, in northland.
in Feb 2017 I moved to Waipu, Northland, New Zealand.
In May 2015 I join the team at inspire as a gym instructor and personal trainer.
April 2014 I moved to West Sussex, to continue helping people get fitter and feel healthier. I am running local exercise class in Yapton at the village hall club room, every Wednesday form 10am.
In August 2013 I joined the Archers fitness team in Hitchin at the swim centre, this is the first opportunity I have had to use the qualifications I have achieved over the years, as a fitness consultant I now show people how to use the gym equipment safety and effectively, I tailor make exercise prescription programs on the fitness wellbeing system, I run fitness class legs bums & tums, abd attack, indoor cycling, stretch 'n' flex, boot camps and triple decker which are all part of Archers fitness centre class program, please see Archers fitness website for more details on what they have to offer, www.stevenage-leisure.co.uk
Since 2010, I have managed to lose a lot of weight I have lost over 14 kgs (that's 14 bags of sugar). I know how hard it can be to get motivated some days, I have been there, I have done it and I have also achieved the goals I set out to achieve.
Now I believe I can help you achieve your goals, whether this is weight loss, general fitness & toning up, or training for something bigger like the New York marathon. Send me an email lets see if I can help.
In 2010, I was fat, I was living and working overseas as a holiday rep partying hard, drinking lot's of booze and eating lot's of fast food, you will probably agree not the healthiest of life styles. I had limited access to gym facilities and exercise equipment as well as finding time to go to a gym seem like mission impossible, especially when I could either lying in bed all day , or go to the local bar on my day off these seemed more appealing at the time. I can remember one of my mates actually commenting saying 'Christ James even your back has fat'
At this point I decided to try to start training but with limited gym facilities it was not easy, so I joined future fit training (www.futurefit.co.uk) and signed up for the diploma as a personal trainer. In August 2013, I qualified as a personal trainer. Please see qualifications tab for all the qualifications that I hold
