I realised in my early 50’s that my body was starting to waste away, and that I needed to do something about it. I started training with James at Beyond40 and now I have a safe and structured training program that changes according to life events. The sessions are tough and good. I have started to get my shape back and I want to be doing it for many more years to come as I can feel it's keeping me young.
I came to James at beyond40 with 2/3 of my pancreas missing, all my gallbladder, appendix and spleen missing. I was seriously unfit and unhealthy. I can’t say it was easy and without pain, particularly at the start when we had to have a few heart-to-heart talks and adjust my reality. The session was hard as he had to push me to make the changes as the doctors and my health demanded it. Over the last 2 years I have lost a lot of weight, improved my strength, increased my energy and learnt how to manage my stress and change little habits that were causing me major health issues. I now consistently train 3 times a week and I love our 3 on1 training session. I always laugh, sweat and learn something new! I can’t thank you enough Ferg.
I have avoided gyms all my life as I never really had the confidence, I have been Training now for over 2 years with James from Beyond40. Training with Beyond40 has changed the way I look at things and given my confidence back in my body and has really complimented and improved my other activities like paddling, Tennis, golf and hiking that I do regularly. I really enjoyed our session and can't thank him enough for improving the quality of my health.
I have been training with Beyond40 for about 4 and ½ years now and before that I was quite overweight, lethargic and ill disciplined. Having the structure of a regular appointment for my training and the accountability of diet and regular movement outside of my training session has been a massive reason for my change of lifestyle habits, improving focus at work and losing over 10kg of body fat while doubling my strength. Overall, it’s been a fantastic experience with lots of laughs in the process. I have no hesitation in recommending Beyond40.
I realised that I had lost a lot of fitness in my 30’s and early 40’s and had not given my health much attention. When I first started with James at Beyond40, what I was most interested in was that he had seen a lot of fat patterns in people and that he knew it was not a one size fits all. So, once we did the whole holistic analysis looking at everything I did in my life with regards to health, we began training and implementing small changes every couple of weeks. 6 months later, I have lost over 7kg and I have doubled my physical strength, my sleep has improved, diet improved and my mental strength has improved. Overall, I feel I have improved all aspects of my health which has significantly made life easier. I can’t recommend James highly enough.
I came to beyond40 some years ago quite out of shape and with a number of muscle imbalances. I knew that James was good with older people and that his understanding of the body and its physiology was excellent. After completing my initial foundation program and re-balancing my body I began to enjoy having my body work well again! I love the ease and structure of the training session and that James allows for laughter and life mishaps along the way. I recently hurt my shoulder body surfing and James changed the program accordingly.
