Teaching clients the methods behind the moves by incorporating lessons in physiology into each session. Sarah loves to arm clients with knowledge, so they are confident with technique whether they’re working with her 1-1, or training in a group. Above all, Sarah enjoys watching clients’ passion for fitness grow and seeing them transition mentally not just physically feeling better in themselves. She says; ‘It’s not just about the success of the business, I genuinely care, my intensions are pure & have been since day one… I only want the people that want it… the ones ready to do the work!’.

James

The Brother

Growing up in Oldham, Greater Manchester, James’ first loves were football and boxing legends, (namely Prince Naseem and Mike Tyson). Becoming a fan of the technical styles and showmanship of both boxing greats, led him to pursue his own boxing education. Having graduated from the Hatton Academy, you can be sure James will put you through your paces. Infact, it’s a guarantee during a session with ‘The Muscle’, but he says; ‘Remember, boxing is as much about physical prowess as your state of mind. Time to get the gloves on!’.

Speciality

When you come into SKPT, what you get in that session goes beyond the training. James says: ‘Everyone’s different. I want to understand you and your life goals so I can help. People’s barriers to fitness go beyond physically being able to do something; it’s often about helping you to overcome your mental blocks. I will be there to help you with anything I can. Yes, you will learn about offence and defence, but I hope to bring you out of your shell as well!’.
‘Life is too short for negativity, stay positive.’
