Hi my name’s James Porter, and this website has come about because I strongly believe in the importance of physical and mental health and fitness.
I know from personal experience just how much being fit and healthy significantly improves ALL areas of your life.
Often people exercise because they want to get fitter, lose weight, or get ready for a holiday or wedding. These are all very worthy and very important goals.
However, there are also so many more benefits that you can experience. Things like having more energy, feeling better mentally and less stressed, having more confidence, being able to do more with your partner, children, or grandchildren, having better relationships, having fewer health problems, and having a more positive outlook on life.
Overall when done properly, exercise will help you to live a healthier, longer, and happier life. Every single day of your life will be higher quality.
Really becoming a fitter and healthier you means a better life for you and everyone else in your life, and here’s why I can help you get there:
- I’m a fully qualified UK Athletics coach who has extensive experience helping thousands of people to get much fitter and healthier
- I’ve also helped thousands of people to lose weight with exercise
- I can help you with any area of exercise, fitness, health, diet, and motivation
- I have trained with and helped complete beginner exercisers to Olympic athletes
- I have 22 years exercise experience and can pass this valuable experience on to you to help you reach your goals
I am a friendly and well mannered person who enjoys the social side and I am interested in you as a person. You are not just a statistic or number to me, you are a person who I want to help improve your life.
I have the experience to help you reach your goals, I know you can do it… so let’s make it happen.
WHAT CLASS MEMBERS SAY
I’d got to 50 something and I’m not fit. So I’d got a choice. I could have grown old disgracefully and eaten lots of chocolate and got fat. Or I could do something positive which is what I chose to do.
4 years later I’ve got various 5ks, 10ks, 5 mile, 10 mile races, and 3 half marathons under my belt.
If somebody had said to me 4 years ago that I would be running half marathons I would have laughed. But here I am. I am fitter now than I have ever been.
Honestly you’ve got absolutely nothing to lose. Give it a go! See and read more
I was at my heaviest and recovering from a hip replacement which had restricted my mobility, making me feel frustrated and unhappy.
I’ve now been attending the classes for just over a year and I’ve lost 2 stones and I can honestly say I am now the fittest I have ever been in my life!
They’re a great bunch of people of all ages (I’m 61), all shapes & sizes and all fitness levels. Everyone is welcome. Joining the classes is one of the most positive and beneficial things I have ever done. Go beyond any fears you have and sign up!! See and read more
A year on I cannot believe the difference that I’ve made. I am stronger. I am fitter. I am healthier. I am sleeping better. The changes have been unbelievable.
From not being able to run for a minute last year I have just successfully completed the Leeds Abbey Dash 10k run.
The friends that I have met over this last year have been absolutely brilliant. It’s such a supportive group of people.
So please come along. We have loads of fun. And you just won’t look back. Take the plunge and join James’ classes. They are absolutely excellent. See and read more
I joined the exercise classes 3 years ago this month. At that time I was obese and hadn’t ever really exercised regularly.
Since joining the classes I have lost a total of 4½ stones!! I no longer need medication for my blood pressure as it’s returned to normal! My asthma is also more stable than before. My life now is much different. I feel so much better.
Just give it a go. James is very friendly, approachable and will give you all the support, advice and encouragement you’ll need. See and read more
From being unable to go upstairs without getting out of breath I have really improved my fitness levels and can play with my 3 young boys without getting out of breath. It’s changed my life.
Starting bootcamp was one of the best things I have ever signed up to. If you are thinking about signing up then go for it. Seriously, it is life changing in so many ways! Read more
At the age of 57 and with arthritic hips and knees I was beginning to get worried about my fitness and my health.
I can’t believe how much better I feel. My muscles feel so much stronger and even my posture has improved. I can thoroughly recommend bootcamp to young and not so young, male or female who want to improve their fitness and health. Read more
I have just finished my first 6 week bootcamp with James. I am feeling absolutely fantastic and I have reached a running standard I never even thought was possible for my level of fitness.
I have enjoyed each and every session more and more each time. Everyone is very friendly, welcoming and supportive no matter what level of fitness they are. Read more
I decided to join the bootcamp because I wanted to lose weight and get fitter.
I’d advise anyone thinking of joining bootcamp to go for it. I’m really glad I did it – I’m so much fitter, my clothes fit a lot better, and I’ve met some fab people! Read more
Wow how different I feel about myself. After just 6 weeks I already feel so much better, fitter, and I have lost 12 pounds.
Please give it a try or contact James and I am sure, like me you won’t regret it. Read more
Before I started at the fitness bootcamp I was unhappy with my weight, my fitness and generally with the way I felt about myself. Running has helped me gain confidence, improved my fitness, and I have lost size and improved my body shape.
If anyone is thinking about joining, don’t think, just do it. You won’t regret it. It was the best decision I’ve made in a while! Read more
