About Me

Hi I’m James, Ive been serving in the Military for six years, and during this time have  been building and developing myself both physically and mentally. I first found a passion for calisthenics during my preparation for military life and this helped me cultivate grit, character, physical strength and a determination to dig  deep. 


I’m a vegan but don’t worry, I’m not here to convert you! :)

I feel that calisthenics, as one of the most naturally pure

and organic training systems available effectively ties in with this.

Its simple beauty means that you are limited by nothing but your

imagination and it has truly stood the test of time.


Teaching is something that I’ve always enjoyed and

as a former Music Teacher I relish the opportunity to make a

positive difference in others lives.

‘The world is the great gymnasium where we come to make ourselves strong.’
