James Quinn

Trainer

Growing up in rural Somerset, I was very fortunate to have a wealth of areas to keep myself active, from woodland to the moors, I’ve been through it all. This strong base of physical activity throughout my childhood and teenage years has translated into over a decade of competing and training, culminating in a wealth of practical knowledge. My competitive sporting background, alongside the variety of endurance events I have completed over the years allows me to fully understand what it takes to prepare for such demanding undertakings. As a qualified REPS (Registered Institute of Exercise Professionals) Level 3 Personal Trainer, I also have a strong understanding of training principles, nutrition and performance training.

Having also passed British Army Solder selection in 2016, I understand the mentality required to push yourself and achieve the results you desire. Mentality and discipline are two of the most important things when it comes to training, and is at the core of my training philosophy.

Mark Ames

Trainer

As a former Royal Marine, I’ve seen some amazing feats of human endurance. The most important thing I’ve taken from that time is the realisation that anything’s possible through determination. I apply this principle to personal training and to my whole life. My training style is not a boot-camp style, but hard work and positive attitude is still the key to getting great results.

My background in fitness builds on my service as a Royal Marine and on my experience competing at an international level in martial arts and in endurance events of all kinds. I draw on this breadth of experience to motivate and encourage my clients to push that little bit harder and go that bit further every time. I want you to achieve your ideal physique – that’s why I do what I do!

I’m a registered Level 3 REPS (Register of Exercise Professionals) personal trainer based in Taunton Somerset. We have full insurance and first-aid training. I’m currently studying for a Level 4 Advanced Personal Training Certificate, specialising in lower back pain.
