How does your Personal Training work?

With your Personal Training it doesn’t matter what your level of fitness, your running experience, or your running ability. You can make a start right away.

Whether you are a complete beginner, or you have been running for years, I can help you.

Whether you want to get fitter or faster, complete a race, or smash your personal best, I can help you.

Whether you want to lose a few pounds, or several stones, I can help you.

I know all the different running methods available and which ones you should be using based on your current fitness level and your goals. I also know how you should use them so that you get the very best results in terms of improving your fitness, improving your speed, or losing weight.

Plus you’ll also want to avoid injuries along the way which I’ll show you how to do. This will save you a lot of wasted time, effort, and frustration.

This is what your Personal Training involves…

First we will start with an Introductory Personal Training Session

To help you get off to the best possible start, my aim during this session is to find out more about what you would like to achieve, and also get a good idea of your current fitness.

Based on where you are now, I’ll explain what running you should be doing to get great results. Everybody is different and your Personal Training is all designed specifically to suit YOU.

We will also complete your first training session so that you are moving forward and making progress right away.

By the end of your first session you’ll know how to achieve your goals whether you want to improve your fitness, speed, or lose weight, AND you’ll have already made a great start.

You then get a Personal Training session every week (or as often as you require)

During your Personal Training sessions we will complete a training session where I’ll coach you about what to do, so that you keep progressing quickly and doing very well.

We will review how you’ve progressed with your running since our previous session so that we keep you on the right track.

Plus I’ll give you advice on what you should be doing for the rest of the week to get the best results out of your training.

I’ll also provide you with lots of high quality tips, and of course you can ask me any questions you like about things like your running, nutrition, and losing weight. You can take advantage of all my 22 years experience so that you get MUCH quicker results.

What else you should know about your Personal Training

It’s important that you get the results you want AND also enjoy your training. So I make sure that your Personal Training is fun and enjoyable.

Your Personal Training is also very flexible. I suggest that we start off with one training session per week to get you off to the best possible start but it’s entirely up to you.

I design your training around you. If you want to meet twice a week, once every week, or once every two weeks then that’s ok with me.

The area where I coach people is less than a mile from Barnsley town centre. It’s also a very attractive area which is great for running and enjoying your training.

What’s the price of your Personal Training?

The price for your Personal Training sessions is ONLY £30.

What you will get for this, is Personal Training that is higher quality and more personalised than any other you will ever experience!

Outside of your Personal Training sessions I also spend time reviewing how you are progressing and planning your future sessions. PLUS I always send you an email after each session which summarises what you achieved during the session and what we talked about so that you don’t have to remember everything.

Overall I will provide you with personalised and expert help where we are working together to achieve your running goals, whether you want to get fitter or faster, lose weight, complete a race, or beat your personal best times.

You will also find your Personal Training really motivating because you’ll be improving all the time and getting better and better results as you progress.

You’ll also feel more motivated because you’ll know that you are doing everything right with your running AND you’ll have me to talk things through with and have my full support.

Plus I actually really care about what you achieve with your running and it means a lot to me that you get great results.

So with all this that you get, and when you see how much you are improving and you reach your goals, the price of your Personal Training will seem small in comparison.

And just to give you an even better idea about the high quality you will get with your Personal Training, the average time that my clients continue with their Personal Training is around 7 months which is excellent. The average for normal Personal Trainers is more like 2 to 3 months.

The reason that people stay with me is simple. It’s because they get great results, they achieve their goals, and they really enjoy their sessions.

This is your opportunity to achieve ALL your running goals

You already know that things like getting fitter or faster, losing weight, completing a race, or beating your personal best times are very important to you.

Just imagine what it would feel like if you were fitter and faster than ever before, you were at the weight you want, you completed your race, or you smashed your personal best. How much better would you feel about yourself and how much happier would you feel?

Well that’s what I will help you achieve!

Most people struggle to ever reach their running goals because they are doing things with their running that guarantees that they’ll NEVER get there. So they end up putting in lots of time and effort, and are left feeling frustrated with their results.

With my help you will see massive improvements with your running, and as you’ll find out with your Personal Training, I always do my very best to help you achieve your goals!

If you have any concerns or questions at all then I don’t want you to let this opportunity pass you by.

Or you can just get in touch with me and I’ll help you out anyway I can and make sure that your Personal Training is right for you. Just give me a ring on 07804 956966, or email me at

How many places are available?

I actually don’t take on a lot of Personal Training clients because it’s important to me that I provide you with the highest quality service that I can. I also spend a lot of time helping people with my group coaching and telephone coaching, and developing my running websites.

What I do is give this opportunity to 7 people ONLY. Yes that’s right, there are ONLY 7 places available.

So you need to be quick if you want to get your place and take advantage of your Personal Training!

When all the places are taken I will either remove this page from my website, or increase the price of my Personal Training for new clients.

So NOW is the best time to start your Personal Training while you still can, and while you can still get it at the lower price.

Before starting running

"I was searching for running motivation along with general fitness and nutrition advice. I’d taken things about as far as I could on my own. I’d gone from couch potato to Marathon finisher in 12 months. But I wanted to try and better myself and get fitter and faster.

I started to read about how a running and fitness coach can really make improvements and fuel the ambition. This is when I started coaching sessions with James Porter. Within weeks I was smashing my personal bests and I really mean smashing them.

After James’ coaching

James’ calm and friendly approach mixed with dastardly task-master really inspired me to push my running boundaries and helped me grow incredibly as a runner.

James’ sessions are always varied and the enjoyable training plans he creates for each client are always challenging and interesting both physically and mentally.

His knowledge and experience is priceless to anyone who intends to improve their running performance, increase their weight loss potential, or prepare for a big race.

From absolute beginners to intermediate runners and seasoned veterans, James has all the skills, encouragement and personality to help you achieve your running goals.

I know this because he did it for me."
