“I have trained with James Ross for over 10 years now. I have followed him from the original gym where I met him to the gym he currently owns”
He is like a scientist in the way he designs his programs. James’s programs set out the minimum you have to do to get stronger and fitter every week. He is also the reason I discovered my love of kettlebell sport, as one of Australia’s top lifters. Thanks to his help I have qualified for the Australian Kettlebell Team four times. James is the real deal!.
“His understanding of my goals has made my training more consistent and focused, and I’m surpassing my aims on a regular basis.”
James is a uniquely skilled coach bringing extensive sport-specific training and general physical development to the table. The combination of his methods, analysis of movement and his understanding of my goals has made my training more consistent and focused, and I’m surpassing my aims on a regular basis.
“Overall, James is the most knowledgeable individual that I know in the fitness industry.”
Overall, James is the most knowledgeable individual that I know in the fitness industry – and has always made an effort to help me understand the sometimes difficult theoretical underpinnings behind his training methods of choice and the effects that they have on the body. I look forward to continuing work with James into the future and know that the progressive types of training that he will expose me to will allow me to further develop as an athlete.
