For me, the best part about being a personal trainer is having the ability to help transform peoples mind-set and attitude towards health and fitness.

With a number of years’ experience in the fitness industry, I understand how important it is to listen to clients’ needs in order to put together a realistic plan in order to help them succeed.

I believe in order to achieve great results it is important that you make sure things are fun and enjoyable along the way. Fitness is not all doom and gloom! – let me show you.

I’m soon entering my fourth year as a Personal Trainer. Starting out with Pro-Fit Personal Training, I spent 3 years becoming a “Level 4” trainer, where I eventually split my time between working one-one with clients, and mentoring other Personal Trainers at the company on how to get the best results, and deliver the best service to their clients. I’m now based at Uppermill Leisure centre. When working with you – we cover everything needed for you to see, and keep, your results. A bespoke nutrition plan will ensure you know exactly what to eat, what not to eat, and when. A full Kinetic Chain Assessment will assess your weaknesses and strengths, to design your exercise plan not only on seeing your desired result – but whilst correcting your posture at the same time. We will also take your measurements and weight every 2 weeks, to ensure your constant progression. There’s tonnes for me to explain, so I’ll be happy to sit down and have a chat about your specific goals, and how I can best help you, in a free consultation. Contact me to arrange a time to suit.

Note: I offer a full money back guarantee. No results? No paying!

Let me help you.

This process is about you. What you want to achieve, the way you want to achieve it.

Are you looking to make a change but feel lost or unsure what your next step is? I am here to listen, give guidance & support.

“James listened without judgement & explained how he could help & what it would involve to achieve my goals. He is fun, knowledgeable and motivational and is getting me exactly the results I wanted. Going to the gym is a pleasure, I love it and I prioritise it over work now. I do now enjoy the treadmills and the rowing machine is growing on me now and that really is saying something!” – Emma Lam

Going to the gym is more than lifting weights or stepping on a treadmill. It is about how you feeling. How you feel about yourself. How you carry yourself at work or night out with your friends. It is about having the freedom to pick up your children or grandchildren up off the floor. Having the confidence in your body to complete any task that is asked, pain free.

Will achieving your goal increase your self confidence, boost your energy levels & reduce muscular or joint pain? How will you feel & how will your life change?

I will give you clarity, structure & a clear path to success. Let’s remove the outside confusion & get focused on what you need. You can find fitness related information everywhere you turn but nothing that is designed specifically for you. We are all different & have different needs, your process should reflect that. Let me make your life easier by giving you clarity.

“I have trained with James Osborne for 4 years. My strength & confidence have improved dramatically, more than I could have ever achieved on my own. James is professional, knowledgeable & motivating.” – Jo Shilton

I have been a Personal Trainer since 2014, working with a variety of clients with different goals & needs; from improving fitness levels, weight loss and performance to injury rehab, pre & post operations. I have a degree in Sports Physiology, ACA Nutrition graduate & DTS Level 1 Certified. I have also progressed to a high level within one of the leading Personal Training companies in the country. Using my knowledge & experience, together will my guidance you can achieve the goal you would like to achieve.

What is the next step?

A FREE consultation.

In this session I listen to you, starting with where you are now. Then we explore what is currently hindering your progress & what you would like to achieve. Whether it is guidance with Nutrition, Sleep, Exercise Technique & Programming, Injuries or Mindset, I can help you. I understand everybody has a different path to success, lets create yours. The consultation will give your goal a definition, a timescales & the confidence to know you will achieve success.

After the consultation I also offer a FREE movement assessment.

Do you want pain free, unrestricted movement & a greater quality of life? The movement assessment identifies any postural imbalances, tight muscles & joints that may be causing pain or discomfort. Using this information I create an exercise program that will improve your muscular strength & increase joint stability & mobility, whilst remaining focused on the overall goal.

What is the end product?

I will create a package to deliver success. Designed & tailored for you. Your goal, on your terms, in your timescale.

James has been the perfect match for me in terms of personality and style. I would not be in the place I’m in now, in terms of both physical fitness and mental state, without the support he has so willingly given over the last year.” – Liz
