About James

Although James is one of the youngest trainers at The Bunker, he brings focus and technical knowledge to every aspect of the experience. He’s a master of bringing his own passion for fitness out in all his clients. James utilises the many different benefits of resistance training to help his clients gain strength, increase muscular endurance, improve postural issues, burn fat and to support good old-fashioned muscle building.


When he’s not on the gym floor, he is most likely getting some sun, cooking a disproportionately big meal or enjoying a classic film.

Training philosophy

Exercise can be used as an amazing tool for personal development. I want to use that to create a culture of self improvement in my clients. My aim is to coach people to be as passionate about fitness as I am, and to focus on quality over quantity. I guide people to their muscle building and fat loss goals, and teach proper form and technique for exercise execution.

I’ve been working with James for a few months, he’s really helped me to gain a new appreciation for a healthier body and lifestyle. He’s been instrumental in changing my views on how easy it can be to make definitive changes to my body, mind and lifestyle. James takes his time to carefully explain each exercise and the science behind the movement allowing you to fully engage and invest in the workouts you are doing. James listened to what I wanted to achieve and tailored the sessions according to my goals. All the hard work is paying off and I am feeling very positive about life and what we’re doing. Very reliable, never missed or moved a session would definitely recommend booking in your sessions with James!
I’ve been working with James since November 2019 and I would highly recommend him to anyone (no matter what your current fitness level) looking to improve in areas such as weight loss, muscle gains, strength building, or functional movement. From my first session it was clear that James has a wealth of technical knowledge in human movement. He corrected many mistakes I’d been making for years which led to injury. In a short period of time, my form has become better, and I’m lifting heavier now than I ever have with no pain! James offers great moral support both in the gym and between sessions. He checks in on food habits and general well being, which is going above and beyond. If you’re looking for a trainer to take you to the next level – James is your guy!
Four weeks into an initial 12 week journey and I am already feeling / seeing results. James takes an incredibly personal approach to training, tweaking the activities to best suit the outcomes, increasing the difficulty and scope, focused on my goals. James is constantly vigilant over weight lifting technique and always ready with a minor variation to ensure safe, and ultimately effective, training. Overall, a workout tailored to meet my goals but designed to push me further than I could push myself. All of this together with James’ friendly approach makes for a brilliant, albeit challenging, experience!
