Guest, James Roberts
Having a disability myself I completely understand the challenges a disabled person faces on a day to day basis, but that doesn't mean that I only train people with disabilities, far from it, James Roberts Fitness is a fitness solution for EVERYBODY. I was born with a congenital disability called femoral dysplasia and a floating hip of the left leg as well as scoliosis of the spine. I grew on a NATO base in S.H.A.P.E (Casteau), Belgium but now reside back in Prestatyn, North Wales. I'm an online training and nutrition coach by trade, but I was an elite Paralympic athlete for just over a decade. I've been lucky enough over those years to have represented Great Britain at countless World Championships and 2 Paralympics Games (Beijing 2008 and London 2012) to just name a few.

Since 1988 Ken has worked with more than 5,000 athletes. He is outstanding as a private coach and has intructed many camps large and small. Executing drills are great but Ken goes deeper by specializing in helping the athlete understand his or her genetic potential through muscle physiology and movement biomechanics. Through experience he understands that it is not only important to be faster and stronger but to maximize your control as well.
Most clients are multi-sport athletes that participate in anaerobic and change-of-direction sports such as, soccer, football, basketball, baseball, softball, volleyball, tennis, and track & field sprints and jumps.
