I have been training one to one with James since 2019 and he has had a huge impact on my life.
I am 70+ and have had relapsing/remitting MS for over 40 years. Relapses over those years have resulted in long term issues with weakness, balance, gait and stamina and having spent years walking incorrectly I have now developed osteoarthritis in my right hip. Having given up my racket sports, I now play golf, but my ability to play is often hampered by stiffness, lack of stamina and fatigue.
Friends encouraged me to join one of James’s classes and this made me realise how incredibly stiff and inflexible I had become so I have been training with him 1-1, twice a week, for the past three years, as well as continuing to go to a class. James is a trainer like no other. His knowledge and understanding of the human mind and body and how it is designed to work is outstanding and his ability to identify where the problems actually are, as opposed to where they appear to be, through the use of AMN,
can at times be mind-blowing.
Who would have thought that at my age I would be using clubs and maces to improve my flexibility and movement. He challenges me all the time and often takes me out of my comfort zone, but I am stronger and more flexible now than I probably have ever been and, more importantly not only can I now regularly play 18 holes of golf, but I am stronger, standing straighter and moving and
walking with ease.
If you want big muscles and a six pack, James is not for you, but if you want to improve your flexibility and movement as well as your strength and overall fitness then make that call today – it could change your life.
These videos are from a client who had been informed that the issue was structural in the knee and that he would never be able to perform a lunge movement.
- Video one as you can see is the right knee not bending
- Video two is the left knee for a comparison
- Video three is after a 15-minute remote (hands off) treatment. As you can see the difference in the right leg’s movement is huge.
Using AMN we discovered the issue was actually a medial ligament in the ankle, associated with a few other things including a Meridian line, and actually nothing to do with the knee at all.

James doesn’t want to hear about your weight loss goals though, or your diet; because he believes it’s your life, to live how you want, big, small, thin, large, he wants to help you to move, and keep moving, for decades to come. To be able to enjoy life to your fullest.
You will look better, but that’s a side effect, more importantly you will FEEL BETTER, and move pain free. Honestly, take it from someone for whom the idea of a stereotypical bellowing PT is anathema, James and mind-bodypt are kind of brilliant!”
Technique & posture are all important in James’s method of training above all else, and I feel this is what still allows me enjoy exercise.
His use of the amazing AMN practice (in layman’s terms, a sort of rewiring the brain and re-connecting everything to allow your body to function properly!) often performs wonderous results with aches & pains that leave me thinking, how?
James’s unique combination of Eldoa and Stick mobility offer an amazing way to stretch and increase your flexibility, Eldoa, a spinal stretching practice, which in our sedentary lifestyles is a godsend, is especially excellent at finding your tight spots and easing them; it helps with posture, back & neck pains, and body self-awareness. Stick Mobility is in my opinion, the best tool for overall flexibility I have ever come across, so the mixture of the two techniques works wonders.
James is all about helping you and your body to function efficiently, correctly and naturally, by following his methods you will be more fit and flexible than ever before.
He is friendly and professional, and his classes are small and welcoming, so do come along and see how he can help you “
The classes are fun, and I always feel proud of myself for what I have achieved, and James is always on hand to help if I struggle.
I highly recommend James – he will challenge the way you train and the way you view your body and your brain. Some of it may seem a little ‘out there’ but if you can be open minded and put your trust in James then the results speak for themselves and you will feel better and move better than you ever have before.
James has a first rate understanding of the interaction between different parts of the body so that his exercise classes provide a sound balance for fitness and injury recovery in those seeking flexibility and muscle strengthening. As a senior citizen I have found that regular attendance had helped considerably to control lumber pain and improve my posture.”
A friend recommended I speak to James, and after 1 session of AMN I was walking without the stick, I was so impressed we carried on, & 3 months later I was driving / walking around Orlando and back to normal. Within a year I was back snowboarding and feeling great. – a massive thank you for that James
Words cannot describe how great I feel being able to enjoy my life again, something I thought I may never do again.
I was not sure what to expect when I first attended, but after the first session, I realised that I felt so much better from the range of activities, Mind, body and soul. My mind has to focus on the movements that we are asked to do; the body is much more supple, and my soul feels so much lighter, relaxed and happier after every session.
James has an outstanding knowledge about the body and brain, and how and where they are linked together to work efficiently for our well-being.
Sessions are always good fun, and laughter is always a big part, which makes the sessions all the more enjoyable.
Having seen many “specialists” over the years, who I always found only ever looked at “where it hurts”, I found James’s ability to observe the whole individual and remedy the issues was very refreshing. I am so glad I made that appointment. I can honestly say that it was the best thing I have ever done for myself. I continue to attend a small group lesson on a weekly basis because the benefits are priceless, and I really enjoy the workouts. “
Many thanks for your help James
I highly recommend James. He is intuitive, knowledgeable, clearly passionate about fitness, and most importantly EFFECTIVE!!
From a personal point of view, Covid-19 has forced yachtsmen like myself to sail single-handed, since you can’t distance from each other in a small boat – the exercise regime within James’ studio has helped me to move round the deck with confidence and enjoy the 2020 season’
James has an engaging personality and is caring for the different needs of a wide age range of clients; some of his older clients are certain that his exercise classes are keeping us alive.”
And on top of that he practises voodoo!!
I started off not being able to sit on the floor with my back, or legs straight, but James was really understanding, and just by allowing me to sit on an aerobic step, I could instantly feel the improvements. Within a few months I was sitting on the floor easily, and this with just one session a week, (work allowing) I was upright, my posture had improved greatly, and many of my aches and pains were completely gone. This life changing combination is unlike anything I have tried before, so we are lucky to have James in Salisbury.
Thank you, James,
