The price of this Personal Running Training is £30 per session, which includes help you need during your session and any help outside your session. The physical and mental benefits that you experience will be much more valuable to you than the price of this. They could literally change your life in such positive ways!

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

With your Personal Running Training you pay per session, rather than having to commit 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 see how much I can help you and you’ll be so glad you took this opportunity.

You have everything to gain and really the sooner you start, the sooner you can be experiencing fantastic benefits!

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
