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."

"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 running which I was delighted about.

I’ve lost over a stone and all my body measurements have come down. I’ve lost over 5 inches off my waist which I’m really pleased about AND my body fat percentage has also come down by over 4% which again shows how much my fitness and health has improved.

I’ve found James’ coaching to be a fantastic help and really motivating. I can now look forward to being fitter, healthier, and lighter for the rest of my life, rather than struggling with my weight and wasting years of my life feeling unhappy about everything."

"I really think you are GREAT and I can’t thank you enough for introducing me to running, and helping me stick to it and enjoy it so much.

I have only words of praise, thanks and admiration for the way you run your program, and I wish lots of other people will benefit from it."

"When I started running a lot of younger people thought it was a joke. Why would a 54 year old grandmother start running, her life was over, 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."

Cathy Henderson

"I took part in Run to the Beat yesterday at the O2 in Greenwich, which is a half marathon. It 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 on Saturday 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."

"I have now been working with James for just over 2 months. The help that James has given me along my running to lose weight challenge has been a great help.

I first started just after Christmas. I was a size 44 waist and weighed a little under 20 stones. After a few months of running I noticed the weight start to come off but often found it hard to motivate myself. This is when I came across James’ website.

Since I have been in contact with James he has helped me no end with any questions that I had relating to running, nutrition, etc.

While using his plan I booked myself into the Bupa 10k run on the Bank holiday. I found this a great help to keep me motivated, and focused on the task in hand. James helped me with my approach to training for this race, 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.

Running has a great effect on your life. You just have to give it a chance and work at it, but it’s so worth it when you see the results that you have always wanted."
