Our team is our number one asset, and we pride ourselves on having the best in the business. To achieve this each of our trainers has to get through a stringent recruitment process, but their development doesn’t stop there. We ensure each of our team receives the ongoing educational support they need to ensure the coaching they deliver is truly in line with our scientific, research driven approach.
JAMES C. MITCHELL
After working within the industry for over a decade, I founded SIX3NINE to realise my vision as to how health and fitness should be delivered. I’ve coached hundreds of clients, including many celebrities and business leaders, and have written for numerous national publications including The Telegraph, The Metro and Men’s Health. I have a no nonsense personality, totally committed to delivering honest results.
I believe that fitness and personal training are art forms, underpinning that art with scientific evidence is at the heart of my core values as a trainer. Being creative and innovative comes from having a comprehensive understanding of the basics. I pride myself on being able to use this creativity to teach my clients new skills and develop their abilities.
It is enlightening to see people who have struggled to make exercise a part of their lives change their habits and become healthier than they ever had been. How you reach your goals depends a lot about the task in hand. By assessing these factors, I’ll provide you with the support needed to make realistic changes. Exercise can be a life changer, and I believe that sessions should have an educational element because with this knowledge you will be able to sustain better habits.
We are not all athletes or fitness models who need to be in shape to earn a living. We are lawyers, accountants, teachers, drivers, brothers, mothers and friends. We have professional commitments to keep, financial worries to attend and relationships to maintain and nurture. Smart training and sensible nutrition strategies allow us to be energised, to work harder, to be healthier, stronger, pain free and less ill, enabling us to better care for our families.
With a keen interest in the scientific theory that underpins practical application, I take great pride in both, my exercise and nutritional programming always striving to achieve the best possible results for my clients. Having successfully worked with clients ranging from those who have never set foot in a gym before to aspiring physique competitors I have a broad range of experience despite being relatively new to the profession.
My interest in health and fitness has spanned several fields including fitness modelling, personal training, sports performance and strength and conditioning. I have an interest in the areas of injury management and rehabilitation along with enhancing sports performance through resistance training. It’s my philosophy that every person is different in the way we move, and that should be reflected in the way we train.
I have a strong passion for health and fitness and a unique ability in helping people develop confidence and achieve their goals. I believe that fitness is relative to the individual and whilst training needs to be effective, it also needs to be enjoyable. Through my education and experience I have developed many different skills which enable me to design exclusive nutrition and training programmes.
As the old saying goes “give a man a fish and he’ll eat for a day, show him how to fish and he’ll eat for a lifetime”. I like to approach fitness the same way. With a passion for education both for myself and for others I enjoy the satisfaction of seeing clients further their own understanding of wellbeing. By showing incorporating progressive programming, strategic nutritional planning and tailored coaching I can instruct clients how to use the tools necessary to achieve their goals.
Achieving the lifestyle and physique that you desire to attain is fundamentally a building feat. Creating a solid foundation to which consistency, dedication, nutrition and exercise are the building blocks for success. I strongly believe in the provision of a tailored programme developed specifically for the individual I am training; with the understanding that their goals are personal and unique to them.
“To understand what is wrong you must first understand what is right” is a quote that resonated has with me from the early stages of my career. I believe strongly that you need to understand and master the basic principles that encompass all aspects of fitness. By understanding these basic principles I am able to take a more rounded view of how to best plan and effectively help clients achieve their health and fitness goals. This means looking at fitness, nutrition and lifestyle as by focusing all of the efforts in just one area will not be enough to elicit the most favourable results.
