What class members say

Alison Schofield

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!! 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

Claire Turner

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. Read more

Steve Sefton

After turning 40 I put on a few pounds and my fitness was in decline. I do the two circuit classes and running class. The results are fantastic. I feel fitter than in my 30s and people have commented that I look much leaner.

I was out of breath after running less than five minutes. I’m amazed at my progress and can now do 10k in 48 minutes and half marathon in 1 hour 53 minutes.

If you are thinking about joining, I would say don’t hesitate. You can improve your fitness, at your own pace, and with friendly people around you who are nice to be with. It is ace!! Read more

I’ve been going to James’ sessions for the last 3½ years. It makes me feel good to know that I’m actually doing something very positive.

I would say that everybody is not competing against each other but working at their own level, and this is what we’re encouraged to do. Just do your best.

I certainly feel that mentally this is keeping me balanced and physically I feel really fit.

I would really encourage anybody that’s sitting there watching this to join the sessions. Everybody’s friendly, you can do it to your own ability, there is no need to feel embarrassed. Just do it. Just come and join us! See and read more

Jo

I hadn’t invested in looking after myself for a few years as I’d been “too busy” with work and family life.

I started with the circuit classes which had an enormous impact on my physical and mental health. After about a year I decided to join the running classes. I started at the beginning, running for 2 minutes. I completed the Great North Run (half marathon) in the summer.

I’ve lost 3 stone and changed shape completely. I have a lot more energy, motivation and I feel much more positive about myself and life. I only wish I’d started sooner, I really feel that I’ve missed out in my life pre-classes. Read more

Pam Gill

I joined the classes 2½ years ago. I found the classes invigorating, I felt so much healthier. My life changed from being stale, no motivation, to feeling healthy, and able to look forward to exercising.

I have toned up, lost weight, and feel both mentally and physically better. The classes have enriched my life.

I have met some amazing people. I have met friends for life, everyone is so friendly.

I would recommend James to everyone. If you need to exercise, meet friends, get your mental health in a better place, then join his classes. I am 63 years old, so if I can do it anyone can! Read more

I joined James’ bootcamp in January 2017 because I was putting weight on, feeling unhealthy, and feeling unfit. I found James’ classes so encouraging and so motivational and satisfying.

I like to go on a Monday night and a Wednesday night which are circuit classes. After 6 months I then decided to join James’ Saturday morning running class. By doing this I have made lots of friends.

James is very encouraging and he’s very motivational.

I feel more confident, I feel happier in myself, and I have lost a stone in weight. If I can do it, anybody can. Please come along and join us! See and read more

Kat Fisher

I wanted to lose weight and look better. My confidence took a drop after having my four children and gaining weight. I was also out of breath and feeling lethargic.

I have now been doing the classes for nearly 2 years. I’ve lost a stone and half. I am feeling more confident in my body and how I look. I feel a lot fitter, have tons more energy, and don’t feel out of breath any more.

I feel generally happier. I can get nice clothes, and I look good and feel good. If you are thinking of joining then go for it. Don’t waste time, just do it! Read more

Ewa Wisniewska

The improvements that I made have really added up. With James’ classes and having a reasonable diet, in less than 4 months I lost about a STONE which I’m really happy with!

I started sleeping better, feeling better both physically and mentally, and I stopped visiting a chiropractor because my back pain has gone. And the most important for me was that I started losing weight and I have become more relaxed and energetic.

Our group and James the coach are the best motivation. I just turn up to the classes, follow the exercises, and feel the extremely positive benefits! Read more

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
