Who is James?
Hi! My name is James and I am originally from Malton in North Yorkshire. I have always lead a very active lifestyle enjoying all sorts of sports from a young age. Even as a young child, I was very active in sports, including Football and Martial Arts. My happy childhood and teenage years were shaped by sports and in particular gym fitness.
My career however started out on a very different path, I spent many years in catering, starting out as a chef which eventually saw me working within the coveted kitchens of The Dorchester Hotel in London. In later years I went on to work as a Private Chef which took me all over the world onboard mega yachts and privately owned islands, cooking exclusively for countless movie stars and high profile multi-millionaires and billionaires classed within the top 10% of the wealthiest people in the world. Eventually I opened Bower's Bistro, my own restaurant here in Harrogate which after 7 amazing years I decided to close to allow more precious time with my young daughter and family.
I needed a new challenge, something else that I could put as much passion and enthusiasm into... having always held a passion for fitness and exercise, becoming a Personal Trainer was a no-brainer! After completing an intense training course through Premier Global, I became qualified as an Advanced Level 3 Personal Trainer. It was the best decision I have ever made and I absolutely love every minute of it!!
Helping people on a one to one basis, is something that I excel in. My ability, knowledge and professionalism will be instrumental in attaining results. I will dedicate myself to getting you to where you need to be. I very much look forward to helping you everystep of the way!
