James Matthews
I'm a coach who specialises in strength and conditioning, I’m passionate about working with individuals to increase their athletic game.

Whether you’re an aspiring athlete, looking to hit a new PB, someone looking to elevate their general fitness or simply training for fun! My evidence-based training strategies are geared towards enhancing strength, agility, and endurance.

My background? I played rugby competitively from a young age and continued through to university where I completed a sports degree and my Level 3 personal training qualification, I then went on to work with Harlequins RFC within their S&C set up before moving my focus back to personal training.

Now? I’m a Strongman athlete & coach. I compete regularly, most recently winning Britain’s Strongest Man u120KG in 2023. I’ve used that experience to help others to compete at local, national and even international competitions. From mastering the technique of heavy lifting to refining the mental fortitude required for these challenges, I’m dedicated to producing strength athletes who thrive in competition.

So how can I help you? I provide 1-2-1 PT sessions, group sessions and online programming from structured sport specific programmes focused on ensuring high performance, to weight loss journeys, to those just looking to have some fun and make some friends!

No matter where you’re at or what you’re aiming for, I’ll give you workouts that actually work and keep you totally pumped. Together, we’ll transform your goals into achievements, pushing boundaries and embracing the journey towards a stronger, fitter, and more resilient you.
