How people rate James



A keen runner in my 50’s, I’d gone from couch to 5k, 10k and then running half marathons but I was plagued by a stream of niggling injuries. Following frequent trips to a physio, she referred me to Strength and Conditioning coach James, who worked to identify my areas of weakness and who developed a programme of exercises to address them. James evolved the programme as I got stronger and has been expert in quickly adapting it to address any aches and pains. Within a year I’d completed the Brighton marathon and I’m running London 2022. I always thought that if I just ran more miles, I’d become a better runner. James has taught me that a tailored program of strength and fitness exercises involving the whole body and which adapts over time is a critical addition to running. It was essential to achieving my goals. James is very knowledgeable, flexible and has been dedicated to helping me achieve my fitness goals. I really couldn’t recommend him highly enough!


James has been my strength coach for more than five years. Initially I asked him to help with cycling-specific strength training. The results in my power output and TT times were notable. James then broadened his focus toward improving my all-round functional strength, which had declined somewhat due to a focus on cycling. More recently, James has designed a rehab programme, focused on core strength and stability, that has been highly effectively in helping me recover from a back injury. James keeps up to speed with the latest developments in strength training and injury recovery, ensuring that workouts are varied and interesting. He has a broad knowledge of popular team and individual sports and tailors client programmes accordingly.

James has guided me through the tail-end of my ACL rehab with an intense strength/conditioning programme, which has allowed me to return to sport, safely. Would highly recommend his services!


I’ve been working with James for a while now, he really cares about you and works with you to achieve your goals, highly recommend!


James helped me with my strength training. He greatly understood what my goals are and worked with me towards them. Cannot recommend working with James highly enough.


James is a fantastic strength & conditioning coach. Takes on board your goals, builds great programs and gets results


James has been my strength and conditioning coach for nearly 2 years. I was initially referred to him by a Consultant Rheumatologist to help strengthen my bones following a post coeliac disease diagnosis of osteoporosis. James put together a specific programme that I could also easily follow on my own, focussing on increasing the load in key areas, as well as overall body strength. This is continuously amended as I have become stronger. James knows exactly what I am capable of, which is more that I would have thought myself, which has also given me enormous confidence. James also assessed and adjusted my running technique, and devised a running programme for me, as I had enjoyed running in the past but didn’t feel my knees were now up to it. He monitors this regularly and I am now running again with no problems whatsoever. I feel in very safe hands with James. I find our sessions motivating, confidence inspiring and enjoyable. I could not recommend him enough.


James has been great in helping me rehab from a running injury and created a bespoke strengthening programme for me. He is knowledgeable, patient and supportive every time I see him.


Worked with James Phillips when I started running after a few years break. Really good advice, clear and practical insight, helped me to a safe injury-free return to fitness and decent times.


Cannot recommend James enough as a strength & conditioning coach - he has great knowledge and understanding of how to my improve performance for rugby. He takes a very individual approach to assess my goals for rugby and deliver a personalised plan to help me achieve them.
