The price of this Personal Running Training is £30 per session which I expect to increase for future clients. So the best time to start is now.

The physical and mental benefits that you experience will be much more valuable to you than the price of this. It could literally change your life.

During your session we will discuss various areas that relate to your goals, complete your session, and discuss any areas to focus on over the following week. With your sessions I run alongside you, so we do the session together.

With your Personal Running Training you can pay per session, rather than committing to a long term, more expensive block. So you can easily try 1 session and see what you think.

It will only take 1 session with me to realise how much I can help you and you’ll be so glad you took this opportunity. You have everything to gain.

What running clients say

I have seen a huge improvement in my fitness and running ability from barely being able to run for 10 minutes through to completing 5ks, 10ks, and even my first half marathon.

I am now much more confident with the way my body looks and I have lost weight along the way.

I highly recommend that you take this opportunity to be coached by James. I believe that you will be very happy with the results that you get from following James’ advice. See and read more

I’ve managed to lose about a stone and a half. It’s been absolutely fantastic and it’s really exceeded my expectations. I’ve managed to run a 10k multi-terrain run in just over an hour and four minutes.

I’m fitter now than I’ve been for probably 20 years, and I’m certainly lighter now than I’ve been for 20 years.

I would really encourage anybody to get coached by James because I’m sure that he will be able to help you achieve the goals that you want to achieve. See and read more

I was finding it difficult to progress with my running and fitness. After just 2 months I completed the 10k in 54 minutes which was my best time for a few years, and I didn’t stop!

My resting heart rate was also down from 64 to 48 which just shows how much fitter I had become.

I would definitely recommend James if you are wishing to improve your running or general fitness or want to lose weight. He will work with you to ensure that you reach your goals. See and read more

I was running consistently and dieting the best that I knew how to diet but I wasn’t getting the results that I wanted. So I decided to go with professional advice and I found James Porter.

With time the weight that I lost accumulated to an amazing amount that I was so happy with. It was so much better than when I was doing it on my own.

Altogether I lost 60 pounds and I reached my target which was the most amazing thing. I was so happy when I reached my target. See and read more

Steve Morris

I’d taken things about as far as I could on my own. But I wanted to try and better myself and get fitter and faster. This is when I started coaching sessions with James Porter.

Within weeks I was smashing my personal bests and I mean really smashing them.

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

Barry Robinson

The help that James has given me has been a great help. When I first started I was a size 44 waist and weighed a little under 20 stones.

I booked myself onto the Bupa 10k run. James helped me with my approach to training, and also with the motivational side. I found that there were many benefits to having a person to talk to with the amount of knowledge that James has.

I have now managed to complete the Bupa 10k in just over an hour. Also I am now a 36 inch waist and weigh a little over 16 stones. Read more

Robert Worrall

I never thought I’d be able to run due to my weight and the old knee injury, but with James’ coaching I got up to 30 minutes running after only 4 weeks which I was delighted about.

I’ve lost over one and half stone and all my body measurements have come down.

I’ve found James’ coaching to be a fantastic help and really motivating. If you get the chance to get coaching from James I highly recommend that you do. Read more

Dana Hansen

I’m 54 years old but I feel like a young woman again. I’ve lost weight. My thighs, arms and stomach are much better toned. I can also report a much better energy level, sometimes I can’t believe it.

My health has improved so much. My blood pressure is that of a 30 year old. Am I ever happy about that!

I thank you for my slim body and improved health. And the love of running. I can’t thank you enough for introducing me to running and helping me stick to it and enjoy it so much.

Katy Burns

I took part in a half marathon which took me 1 hour 59 minutes. I wanted to get under 2 hours which I achieved and managed to knock 11 minutes off my previous half marathon time.

I went to Weight Watchers and weighed in at 10 stone 4 pounds. I am 1 pound off losing 4 stone. Thank you for all of your help and support during my journey.

Cathy Henderson

When I started running some younger people thought it was a joke. Why would a 54 year old grandmother start running, but with your help I can now run six miles.

I am now 56, feel more like 36, and 2 stone lighter. Once again James thank you. I could not have done it without your help.

Just imagine what you could achieve with my help
