“I was recommended to James from a colleague who had been worked with James to complete an Ironman.
Over a period of 9 months, he has inspired and coached me to be in a position where I’m on course to finish an Ironman.
James takes a genuine interest in understanding the goals from the outset to build a tailored and workable plan. Building the plan together has allowed us to push boundaries of what I believed was possible and forms the foundation of success.
With regular check-ins to understand how the training is going, it enables him as a coach to modify in line with my everyday commitments and requirements.
As part of these conversations, he is always asking great coaching questions to see how things can improve and then tailor the program to suit.
Under his tutoring, there have been significant gains across all aspects of my training. I’m regularly setting personal bests both in time and distance and feel stronger and fitter than I’ve ever been before.
James advises not only on the physical requirement of completing the Ironman but also the psychological and nutrition elements too.
With such a high level of credibility coming from having ‘been there and done that’ it is reassuring that all guidance comes with personal knowledge and experience.
I can’t recommend James highly enough as a coach. I feel he takes a personal and genuine interest in my goals and has built a plan that will allow me to achieve them.”
