  • I have found James Hirst to be an extraordinary physical trainer of tremendous versatility, intelligence and discipline...and he is a lot of fun too! James has a great knowledge of body mechanics and is capable of determining the individual abilities of his clients. His pleasant and positive attitude is a great asset to his willingness to work with his clients at their own levels. He instils confidence and encouragement to make you want to work further and apply yourself more diligently. I would not hesitate to consult James for any future projects and am pleased to say that he would be an asset to any body fitness programme. He came highly recommended to me and surpassed all expectations that I had.

  • Becoming one of James’s ‘Bootcamp Warriors’ was one of the best decisions I ever made. Not only has it increased my fitness and energy levels but it has helped me lose weight, tone up, de-stress and generally become healthier and happier. The classes are really varied so never get boring and James is a brilliant motivator...all you need is a little dedication and you’ll see results #winning

  • I worked with James last year initially to set up the ASDA Bootcamp - definitely not for the feint hearted as the biggest commitment is the regular 6am start. From the start I was impressed not only with James's enthusiasm but his lighthearted (sometimes warped) sense of humour and general ability to push you to work as hard as you can....and then some! His classes work to cater for all abilities so whatever your level of fitness....whether you just want to get started or you want to push your level of fitness up for a competitive race or get ready for the ski season then this class comes HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

  • James runs fitness classes at my place of work and they are fantastic! If you want to increase your fitness levels, tone up and release some tension, then sign up! I would recommend James' service to anyone who is serious about improving their fitness and health, but the best thing is that you can train at your own personal level and if James thinks that you can work hard, he will surely let you know!

  • I've been training with James since February and seen some incredible results. To date i have lost over 5 stone! My blood pressure has gone from dangerously high to normal! James support has been fantastic throughout and always on hand to answer my questions. James has helped me with my diet too and advised me on a balanced sustainable diet and not a short fix diet. Every training session is varied and James gave me ideas on exercising away from the gym. James helped me knock 33 minutes off my 10k time! I would highly recommend James to anyone looking for a personal trainer.
