James is the man. Extremely knowledgeable and professional. He’s great at adapting his workout plan based to your level of fitness and fitness goals. I’d highly recommend him to anyone interested in a personal trainer. His only downside is he likes Rugby more than Football.

I contacted James about performance based nutrition a few months ago and since speaking with him I have a much clearer idea of why I was feeling the way I was and why everything was feeling so tough, I've been following the guidelines he set out for me in regards to macro's and calories and I have to say my performance is back on track, my running times have improved and Im able to put more intensity into my sessions rather than 'going through the motions'

James really helped me build my confidence back up after struggling to progress with lower body work. I now feel much stronger and have also built a lot of strength in my upper body too.

I started training with James fundamentally to address some on-going knee issues that have inhibited my training over the past couple of years. Lack of trust in my knees and some mobility issues made squatting difficult and painful. I’m only a few sessions in with James and my back squat, front squat and overhead squat have improved dramatically. I actually enjoy squats now ! We have also been working on some callisthenics and I’ve almost got my first muscle up. I’m looking forward to seeing how much I can progress over the next few months.
Thank you James !

I've been working with James for about 7 months and could not recommend him more! At the start of the year, a back injury meant I could barely move, let alone get to the gym. James has been absolutely instrumental in getting me from that point, to where I am today. He has great knowledge about my injuries and has always developed our sessions to work with and react to my back in a way that has meant I am constantly improving and getting stronger. I have seen huge progress in what I am able to do, but James has also introduced me to a huge variety of exercises, so there's no stagnation or boredom. I am looking forward to achieving more strength goals long term. Thanks James!

I have been training with James Lee Of JL Fitness Solutions for about 12 weeks and I’m already seeing great results. I have lost 5kg. The training James has provided has been first class. He has excellent knowledge of the body and how to build strength.

He has been a very useful guide to my nutrition also, think like most people is the tricky part of getting into shape. He has expert knowledge in this area too. Just understanding the caloric deficiency of certain foods and how this can effect your progress. There were certain foods, snacks like flapjacks for example, I didn’t realise how many calories were in one flapjack with is the equivalent of the same amount I could be having in a nutritious full meal. Knowing this allows you to work these snacks into your nutrition without overeating high caloric foods.

Having an expert like James who can guide you will save you a lot of time, energy and guessing. If you have questions he is always willing and there to guide you, both inside the gym and outside the gym. James has also helped me get back into gymnastics Rings workouts after about 10 years off from doing these exercises (I have some videos of our sessions on my Instagram profile @astenregis so you can see some of my progress for yourself). Gymnastics Rings is probably the hardest strength building tool, especially when carrying over 100kg as I was, so this is testament to James’ expert, first class training. Highly recommended, worth every penny,

I've been training with James for nearly 6 months now and have seen great improvement in strength and overall health and fitness. Great flexibility when it comes to booking sessions and I've thoroughly enjoyed each one. Would reccomend James to anyone!

James is my personal trainer for over nine months. My initial goals were to build strengths and develop my mobility and flexibility. We focused initially on exercises using my own body weight. These really helped me to build basics for further training. In particular I enjoyed hand stands, crawls and squats to gain correct form. Now we focus on lifting weights and we can see improvement in terms of technique and the weights I lift. I find James’ approach very thoughtful and professional. He is also kind and determined. He tracks my progress and he takes me to basic movements if my mobility or strength is not sufficient. He makes sure that we have strong foundations before we increase the weights or move on to more complex exercises. James also gives useful nutrional advice. As an academic my work is office based and it is not conducive to sustain correct posture. With James I have seen improvement in my posture, body image and overall confidence. I look forward to our sessions as they set me well for my work later in the day. I trust his professional opinion and feel that I am in good hands to practise with him.

I’ve really enjoyed working with james over the past year. Our sessions are always enjoyable, challenging and varied. His knowledge is all round and has really helped me achieve great results!

I have to say that James did more than I expected in terms of training. This is not only about making training programs and cheering you up when performing the exercises, the experience with James is a dynamic process, on-going everyday. Really instructed on sport, health and nutrition, James uses all his knowledge to build up a complete, tailored to your needs program that balances your expectations with respect to your health and abilities, including a nutrition part. Unfortunately I had to stop my training experience with him because of relocation... But I am sure I won't find somebody else as good as him.

James is the most knowledgeable and sustainable results focussed PT I have ever worked with. Not only will he get you the results you want but you will have great fun getting there! After trying at the gym for 6 years with minimal results, I saw the biggest positive change in my body I've ever achieved after only 2 months of working with James!
