If you have said yes to 2 or more of these questions, then the Excelsior Sports Training System is for you.
I have been coaching for 20 years, and I am more passionate about helping young sports people develop than ever before. In this age of early specialisation, over playing, over coached and burnt out athletes it breaks my heart to see young people dropping out of activity.
With transport costs and pressures on time, not everyone can make our coaching sessions. That is why I have decided to offer the Excelsior Sports Training System to all potential athletes of whatever level who want to benefit from Expert advice and support.
I have developed this system to allow young sports people to train safely and effectively. Sport should not be for the priviledged few who can afford private tuition. You shouldn't have to travel for an hour to get good coaching. I want to help more athletes like you get expert advice, without you having to pay unaffordable costs.
Our first subscriber, Equestrian Mary Grose said this after seeing module 1 today "It's fab; it's better than a practical cos you can print it off and always refer to it wherever you are. Great value. Thank you."
"During the build up to the Beijing and London Paralympics I was fortunate to be able to train with Excelsior. During this time James delivered a specific eleven month training block to me starting from base fitness up to more complex circuits and exercises.
James would give me homework fitness assignments and core exercises to do so when I was on my own during the week I had a structure. James' attitude and professionalism were top class. Having James' support enabled me to reach a level of fitness and sporting performance that I had never achieved before. I would recommend Excelsior's name to any serious athlete looking to achieve their goals."

"The one to one individual training I have received from Excelsior has been exceptional, training sessions have been adapted to suit my needs on a week to week basis, with short term goals established right from the beginning. As an athlete strength and conditioning is not my favourite thing in the world, but James' enthusiasm have made sessions interesting and worthwhile with clear improvements already starting to appear."
If you are looking to develop your young team or P.E. class, then the Sports Training System can help. Video clips, podcasts and handouts every week allowing you to deliver safe, effective and fun sessions for your players. I wrote my book Training Young Athletes with the busy parent, coach or PE teacher in mind. The response to this book has been great, but the next stage for people wanting to improve their sporting performance is to have coaching.
All of the above might look like a lot of work. I have designed the system with busy sports people in mind. The principles can be incorporated into your existing sport training, or in small chunks throughout the week.
You can change your warm up, or do 10-15 minutes extra 2-3 times a week. It all adds up to becoming a better sports person. We give you tips on planning and managing your schedule too.
"I had the pleasure of having James as my first strength & conditioning coach when I was at University in Plymouth. When I first saw James I was identified as a talented rugby player but had various injury and illness problems to contend with. I worked with him for 3 years and learnt everything I now know about training to the best of my ability. By the end of my time with him I had become an athlete and later received my first international cap against the U.S.A."
