James’ Success Story

I began coaching James in the summer of 2020. James has cerebral palsy and had very clear ideas/goals in mind which he wanted to achieve. Fat loss being high on the agenda, improved balance, posture and coordination being important and improved general fitness being the other.

We created a plan as to how often James would be able to train with me (twice per week) and how often he could get into the gym on his own (once per week). James gets the additional workout sent to my training app for him to access.

James hit the ground running, always giving great feedback with regards to any difficulties he had when training. As anybody who knows anything about cerebral palsy will know, there is no two people the same. So any feedback James gave was taken note of.

With creating workout plans and nutrition guidance specific to James’ needs, we have seen fantastic strides in the right direction with all of the goals James and I originally agreed were achievable.

James has dropped a substantial amount of body fat (as shown in his transformation pictures), he has improved his posture and made great strides forward with his balance and coordination. This is all without mentioning his new found energy/fitness levels!

This guy works his socks off!

Its important to note that James managed to make these gains despite lockdown interrupting his gym training.

I’m genuinely very proud of what James has achieved and look forward to helping him maintain what he has already done whilst pushing him on to achieve more!

Well done James

I discovered my interest in health and fitness as a young adult seeking gym support for knee injuries sustained through playing golf. It quickly became part of my daily lifestyle and a hobby that turned into a career as a personal trainer.

Having spent a substantial amount of my working life as a Support Worker / Care Manager, going that extra mile for your client was always a given. Bringing that mindset, positive attitude and personal approach has become an integral part of the service provided to this day.

As a freelance personal trainer based in Newcastle upon Tyne and Ponteland, I offer an elite service that goes far beyond a dedicated one-hour training session. At Angus Smith Fitness, you will benefit from a specialised service allowing you to enjoy the ride whilst achieving the results you hoped for. On meeting you, we will discuss your personal goals and create a bespoke personal training programme specifically tailored for you, considering health, current fitness, limitations, lifestyle and nutrition.

I recognise that everyone is an individual who requires a bespoke personal training programme to suit them and achieve the desired results.

If you want to be the best you can be, I look forward to working with you!
