2019 Fitness Classes Helen Thomas Highly recommend Empowering PT. James is highly knowledgeable and a great teacher with a huge amount to offer. Thoroughly enjoy his sessions. If you get the chance to work with him don’t miss that opportunity, you won’t regret it.
2019 Fitness Classes Lorraine Cox  James listens and takes on board any niggles you have. He will work hard to help you correct your technique or give you ideas to help strengthen your weak spots at home. I attended a Balance Class that he was asked to cover (he was given literally 5 minutes to plan it) with lower back pain and by the end, it had eased massively. Everyone needs a James in their fitness journey so that you can improve your fitness without causing yourself injury. Thanks for all your help, James.
2019 Fitness Classes Sarah Butler  I’ve been doing one if James’s classes for several weeks now. He is a brilliant instructor. He is always focused on ensuring you improve technique and get the most out of the session. Thanks, James.
2019 Fitness Classes Beverley Skelton  Thank you, James, for getting an unfit 50 something strong enough to manage a short triathlon. You have been patient and realistic with setting goals for training and working on areas needed specifically for the triathlon. I would recommend James to anyone wanting a personal trainer.
2019 Fitness Classes Vicki Webb  I’ve been going to James’s classes for just under a year and my strength and fitness has massively improved. James constantly switches things up with different exercises getting us to really challenge ourselves. He’s always on hand to help with technique and offers different variations of exercises if needed. Can’t recommend James enough!
2019 Fitness Classes Bridgete Duckham Combrinck  Highly recommend James for fitness classes – we call him The Little Devil as he causes us so much pain, but he gets results!
2019 Karate Paul Welling Would highly recommend EmpoweringPT. James is knowledgeable, professional and a great communicator. Don’t wait, book him in!
2019 Gym Classes Dan Carter Been looking for a suitable class in the area for my own fitness. Having been a coach myself, ones own fitness takes a back seat. I have looked at many Gym classes over the years and always found them to be more about the speed rather than the technique and often questionable methods and styles. So was glad to have stumbled on James Classes. from day one he was guiding the class on technique and form. Clearly years of experience rather than weekend courses which plague modern gyms these days. Would recommend James classes. May even try out some of his others when I find the time
2018 Fitness Classes Rebecca Corkindale  Today I trained with James who is an amazing instructor! He has an absolutely fab, helpful attitude and takes great pride and pleasure in making sure people get the best and learn the most from his sessions! Also, he has a very patient attitude with who he teaches and always seems to be able to inspire you to keep going whether you get it right or wrong! I would honestly recommend his amazing sessions to anyone! Thank you, James!
2018 Self Defence Courses Dawn Greig  I fully recommend trying one of James’ self-defence courses. They are well structured, tailored to the group of people that attend, very informative and hugely enjoyable. People of any age, fitness or ability can attend and be completely at ease. I persuaded my husband to come with me and although he was reluctant in the beginning he enjoyed it so much we signed up for another course as soon as the first one ended! I will certainly be taking my daughters to his classes now that he runs junior courses so that they can also learn sensible strategies to avoid potentially dangerous situations while having a LOT of fun at the same time.
2018 Karate Martin Corkindale  James is a great instructor and has a lovely calm engaging teaching style. My daughter loved her lesson with him I would highly recommend him to anyone wanting to learn karate he knows his stuff.
2018 Fitness Classes Jackie Dainton  I go to a couple of James’s classes and always leave feeling totally broken – it’s a good thing. James adapts his classes by asking us what we would like to get out of it and always gives us plenty of variety and a complete workout. He’s on hand for advice as well and is genially knowledgable in this field. He’s not the instructor to get his own workout in the class but will actually guide and assist
2018 Fitness Classes Helen Santa Maria  I’ve had brilliant, enthusiastic coaching in all the group sessions I’ve been to. Big thumbs up from me! Very knowledgeable and creative teaching. Highly recommended
2017 Self Defence Tuition Thomas Harford Age 39 I have received high-quality self-defence, martial arts and general fitness training. My technique and understanding have improved rapidly.  The lessons are tailored for individual needs and requirements. I can thoroughly recommend James as a teacher.
2017 Self Defence Course & Karate Tuition  Emma McCarthy Age 44 James has helped my family progress through the belts at Shotokan karate.  Our daughter is now first dan and the rest of us are first kyu. James is particularly good at teaching our youngest son and encouraging him through.
2017 Self Defence Course Amy McGuire Age 18 The lessons were very well organised and very useful.  I would highly recommend this course to anyone of all ages and genders. James conveyed the techniques and knowledge exceptionally.
2017 Self Defence Course Emma McCarthy Aged 44 I thoroughly enjoyed the class and James is a very good teacher.  His knowledge of self-defence is very good.
2017 Self Defence Course  Tony Longson Age 40 Overall it gave me a more positive outlook about being caught in threatening encounters.
