Coach James is great! He is really helping my son with his technique in the triple jump!

Very knowledgeable. My son looks forward to meeting with him each week.

I've only had one session so far, but he was great! Very complete workout, and I learned a lot about technique in a short time, too. I'll definitely be working with him again!

Excellent instruction!

Coach James did great with my 7 year old. He was very patient with him through the drills and stretches. He also made sure to discuss the goals of the drills with me. My son and I learned a great deal about sprinting in the first session. I have already seen improvements in my son's running from just one session. I was very pleased and would recommend Coach James as a running coach.

James did a great job of connecting with my son, teaching him the fundamentals of long jump, and giving him a head start for his upcoming season.

Coach James is great. He connected with my son and shared relevant strategies.

Coach James is excellent, patience and kind. He is skilled in what he does and just one session with my son, he likes him so much. I will never hesitate to recommend him to anyone who needs his services.

James was great after 2 sessions my brother had to discontinue the elite package due to transportation. I recommend him my brother enjoyed the two sessions he had.

Coach James is awesome! He makes the sessions fun and my son really enjoys working with him, Even after just a handful of sessions, we can see improvement in my son's running. We can't wait to see how he continues to progress. It's clear that Coach James has a real passion for coaching and he's great at his job. If you're looking for a track and field coach for your son or daughter, don't think twice, book Coach James.

Great overall approach and execution for my sprinting program. Walked and talked me through the session which was great. Would highly recommend to anyone.

James did an excellent job for my 14-year-old son's introductory session. Clearly he's an expert in his field. We've signed up for a 10 session package and are excited to see how much faster and explosive he can make my son.
