"I haven't looked back and if I can do it, anyone can!"
I’ve been training with James now for a little over a year, both in PT sessions and in his epic ZUU classes. I arrived overweight, lacking fitness and with two surgically repaired knees that stopped so many attempts to get moving and active again. He’s been constantly positive and patient with me, helping me progress from basic movements to help my mobility to more intense stuff that has me fitter than I’ve been in years! Every session is a new one – he’s always prepared with a plan to push something forward, and he’s always adapted those plans if I’ve got any strains or niggles – which he always manages to help out, by finding the root cause and strengthening whatever needs work.
Most importantly, it’s enormous fun! For someone like me who has never had the trim body or the toning everyone wants, it’s really easy to be self conscious about what you can do but James takes you from wherever you are, and pushes you towards your goals, having a laugh along the way. I’ve lost weight, got stronger, and am working towards running a marathon that I never thought my knees would ever let me do. It’s crazy looking back to what I struggled with initially and seeing how much has changed!
It’s definitely worth giving PT with James a go, whether you’ve done something like that before, or whether the idea or PT scares the life out of you (it did me!) – I haven’t looked back and if I can do it, anyone can!
