James started my online coaching at 49 already in fantastic shape, but he always had a feeling in the back of his mind that over the course of his many years training he had fallen just short of what he imagined his peak could be. Despite working with other trainers, and trying various training programs James found that no matter
Nilantheny and I had a very clear goal when we started to work together to get her to look a million dollars on her wedding day. That sounds simple, but you also have to bear in mind that when a dress is also pre-purchases many months out from a wedding we need to be sure that we calibrate our training with pinpoint accuracy to ensure that we don’t underdeliver or lose too much weight and not have the silhouette we want in the dress. Which, interestingly enough is why we actually threw the measure of weight out of the window with our approach because the outcome was very clear, LOOK a million dollars, so what we weighed on the scale was irrelevant. This meant that Nils didn’t have to eat restrictively to be where she wanted to be on her wedding day. We were able to use a combination of resistance training + HIIT to achieve fantastic results, with no dieting.
“With Scott’s leadership and motivational skills I was able to lose over 30 pounds, while building muscle mass in the process. This program far surpassed anything that I thought I could do.”
“Wow didn’t realise I looked so good (thank you) Love Annie”Annie Annie decided to take on my services at the 6 week mark of her Husband’s Rick’s training program, we had been getting great results and since they were eating together it made a lot of sense to take the plunge together.

When Vyn was recommended to me by a previous customer, he explained to me that as an active Fire-fighter he was already fit and strong, but the demands of his shift pattern meant that his meals nutrition was hard to plan and his meal times could be tricky to guarantee.

“My training program helped me lean out and get beach ready after I moved to LA, the meals were great too, thanks Scott” Lyn
Scott’s plan worked perfectly in the lead-up to race day. The swim training he’d devised had me peak at a good time – I was swimming the full 5k distance in practice 10 days before the race itself and feeling good. I felt the training was so beneficial that I’ve signed up to do another 5k later this year, and I know sticking to a lot of Scott’s advice will stand me in good stead for that
Since meeting Scott, it’s the first time I’ve ever enjoyed training in a gym. Time passes quickly and the sessions are varied. He also provides a rounded service, focusing on nutrition as well as exercise so that I achieve my goals quicker. I’m definitely seeing a difference and getting more toned which is exactly what I wanted.
I really enjoyed my session with Scott – he’s calm, collected and listens to what you want out of a personal training experience. He’s also really encouraging and doesn’t make you feel crap like a lot of personal trainers – telling me to focus on toning my arms and improving posture for my wedding day rather than saying I needed
“I am over the moon with the results, this has actually changed the way I see food and how much I enjoy exercising.” Natalie
As an already-established fitness addict, I was running out of new challenging exercises for my strength sessions. I wanted to build more muscle mass and strength but without compromising my cardio training since I’m such a keen runner too. Scott gave me a whole new approach to try with much heavier weights and slower movements and a load of pryometrics
I really enjoyed my session with Scott and was impressed how much he incorporated my exercise preferences into the training. Although I already had a fairly good level of fitness, he helped me to iron out mistakes in my technique and identified a rather significant lack of flexibility which was holding me back in achieving my desired results. Most importantly,
I first came to see Scott while I was preparing to ride in an amateur horse race, which requires a lot of core, leg and arm strength. Up until that point, I had been a total couch potato, so was horrified about the prospect of showing myself up in a gym. I needn’t have been. Scott is incredibly understanding and
