"Literally can't thank James enough when I met him 5 weeks ago to book 15 personal training sessions (to get in shape for my holiday). I never thought I would have done as well as I have! Not only have I changed in my appearance but my mind set has also changed, something I never could have changed alone! James has been there for me the whole way through with tips, motivation and just pushing me as hard as I could possibly push myself. Had my measurements done today and over the moon with the results! Thank you so much James Monk - highly recommend to anyone wanting to reach there goals or just up there game! Now time to put down the weights and pick up the cocktails!"
Naomi M June 2019
James says "Great to see the changes you made in such a short time - you have worked really hard over the 5 weeks and the results speak for themselves. Very well done.
"Thank you everyone!!! I have been driving all afternoon so haven't had time too respond, but I am STILL in shock, I STILL can't believe that the pictures above are of me, and I STILL can't thank James Monk Psnl enough for pushing me, always being available too help and guide me, and motivating me to see that I CAN do this... literally on cloud 9 ☁☁☁ xx"
Elaine H March 2019
James says "So another happy lady this morning 😀. Elaine H strikes again 💪🏽. Since her last weigh in with me 12 weeks ago she has dropped another 10kg to take her total body weight down to 85kg! That's a total of 36kg lost in 7 months or in old money 5 and a half stone! She has lost another 6 inches off her hips, inches off her legs and around her waist too as well as dropping body fat too 😀. She continues to stay dedicated to the cause and let's nothing stop her. An inspiration to those around her, she is proof that hard work and dedication pays off and I couldn't be happier for her. No gimmicks, no fads. Just clean eating, consistency and regular exercise. Well done Elaine keep up the good work 👍🏽😀."
"So today whilst training with James Monk he showed me my photos we took when I first started training with him . ( I was horrified ) let's just say this was the start of my journey I can't believe how far I have come training with him at performance fitness in Eastbourne , let alone my confidence has grown .. I have learnt so much regarding the importance of eating/diet and exercise . Hand on heart I actually enjoy every session even though the next day it kills . This is just the beginning and I am proud of how far I've come and still more to come . Thank you for your support James"
Emily G Feb 2017
James says "So I'm super proud of this girl today. Emily G. Someone who came to me a few months back with very little confidence walking into the gym atmosphere which can always be a daunting experience when starting your fitness or gym related journey. Over the past few months she has had her ups and downs but has been determined as ever and the results show. So much change in her shape. She has developed a much more athletic figure. Waist has come in, legs and glutes have developed massively and much stronger now in her upper body 👍🏽. Better development in the shoulders and across the back too. For someone who suffers anxiety I have nothing but respect for her and what she has achieved in getting the job done consistently week in week out. Well done Emily. You have done great. Keep up the good work 😀👍🏽💪🏽."
"Thank you so much for the support and the motivation James Monk !! To get my squat right has long been a goal for me, but to do it with some proper weight felt amazing!!!!"
Clare B Feb 2017
James says "another fantastic PB for my client Clare B! 45kg squat to depth today! Solid as you like and more in the tank!! Considering this girl couldn't squat the bar to depth a few months back she has made some crazy good progress!! Long may it continue 😀👍🏽.
Well done Clare 💪🏽. Great job."
"Thank you all, just goes to show if you put your faith in your trainer you can achieve your goals, thank you James Monk i am glad you are staying bro 💪"
Barrie M Jan 2017
James says Cannot express my happiness for this guy today 😀. Barrie M hitting a 7.5kg increase on his bench since xmas! 107.5kg and more in the tank for the future. Awesome stuff Baz. Incredible effort. Diet + training + dedication = SUCCESS!!"
"Thank you and thank you again James Monk!! Can not tell you how much I enjoyed today's session and I have defeated my nemesis that was depth, feels amazing!!. You wouldn't give up on me and what you knew I could do, I just had to believe I could too and wouldn't have stopped until I'd achieved it!! A thousand times thank you!! So pleased to have ended the year having smashed this goal of mine"
Clare B Dec 2016
"Thank you James, it means a lot to know you have a great trainer in your corner. Onwards and upwards and time to set some new goals for next year. I can not thank you enough for all you encouragement and professionalism. Anybody thinking of getting a PT in the new year should give James Monk a call 🏋"
James B Dec 2016
"Having 4 young children and 2 businesses to run, means I didn't have a lot of spare time to put in to a training plan by myself. For the last 7 months, James Monk has taken all the stress out of it for me and made it fun again! Not only does he push me to achieve more, but he knows exactly where I'm at and has helped keep me motivated! The results I've seen so far have pushed me to want more from my training and I couldn't recommend him as a PT enough!! Thank you James!"
Caire B Dec 2016
"Been training with James Monk Psnl for about 20wks... cannot recommend him or Performance Fitness gym highly enough! If you are thinking about a few life changes hit him up! Has helped me so much!"
Darren M Dec 2016
"Seriously won't find anyone more dedicated and true too word as a PT... if you are RESULTS driven, then James Monk Psnl can't be recommended enough!!! Go go go people....This is my comparison pic so far- 20 weeks difference. No bullshit, NO gimmicks NO pills NO potions NO meal replacements or expensive pills.... I contacted THE best PT, who gave me a total food plan (and no it's not rabbit food lol) amazing advice, gives me consistent help, and guides me through each and every one of my PT sessions with ease and understanding and patience. And the best part is I have total support and help from him as and when I need it... James has helped me too see what I can be, to focus my mind and continually helps me to become the best physical version of me.... and of course my confidence has grown massively too. I have a long way too go, and am SO excited for what 2017 is gonna bring me.. what could it bring you?..... message or call him.... weightloss/toning/powerlifting/bodybuilding/strongman/marathon training... etc.. whatever the goal... I can guarantee you FIRST HAND if you have a determined mindset, he will get you where you want too be. James Monk call him 07584639508"
Elaine H Dec 2016
James says "So today is not just a very happy and proud moment for myself as a trainer, but also my client Elaine Hills😀. It is with great pleasure that I introduce to you the results of her 16 week journey with me. Elaine has lost a whopping 23kg in BODYWEIGHT (3.6 stone to be exact lol), her body fat percentage has dropped significantly too and she has lost a total of 53.5 inches total from her whole body!!! That is insane 🙈. She has come a long way since her nervous first days in the ...gym with me. This is a lady who has given me nothing but 100 percent since day one. She has listened, been attentive and took all my advice and acted on it, and as a trainer that's all I can ask of from my clients. One of the most dedicated people I have met, she deserves all the praise in the world and should be mega proud of herself cos I certainly am. No gimmicks here. No fat burners, no miracle pills, no dangerous or fad diets, just hard work, healthy eating and a tremendous work ethic!! Well done Elaine you deserve this. Bring on the next 16 weeks 💪🏽."
"Thank you for all your advice and support James Monk! I wouldn't be seeing the results I am or maintaining motivation if it weren't for the awesome coaching!! Not being able to see your own back, you never really know what progress you've made until you see something like this!! Thank you!! 😁💪🏼
Clare B Sept 2016
"Considering when I started I could barely squat with 10 kgs, and today I squatted with 37 kg!! feeling quite proud of myself. Thank you James Monk - I know I will feel this later!!"
Emily G Sept 2016
"So in 6 weeks i have lost 10kg...and 38inches... wow. Just WOW!!! Literally floored... thank god i made the best decision too start something totally new too me. And now? I am more determined than ever, and SO pumped for the next 6 weeks....
No meal replacement shakes and bars, no shitty fad diets, no starving myself and no bloody fatloss/eyeofnewt/slimmingtea pills... just clean eating, upping water intake and plenty of structured exercise with the best PT going.

Elaine H July 2016
I'm three weeks into James Monk's 6 week booty summer programme. On top of the weight I had lost I've lost a further 6lbs and my body fat has dropped dramatically. My bum (that I've been trying to grow for years) has now popped out. Finally!! I have worked my arse off these past few weeks (quite literally) - but it's now a routine and I love the programme and diet so much!! It appears to really work for me. I can't thank James enough, he listened to what I was doing previously then worked out something around me and my hours. He listened to what I wanted to work on then not just told me what to do, but showed me how to do it properly. My body looks completely different! I'm so excited to see what the next few months has to offer other than blood sweat and tears 🙈😂 Kicking myself that I didn't get in contact with James sooner!
Samantha K July 2016
"I can genuinly say that james has been so so motivational, so dedicated too my training and so helpful, that as a complete beginner myself, i honestly couldnt have found a better trainer. I feel like he has listened too what my aims are, figured out and easy too follow nutritional plan, given me clear and knowledgable information and great guidance in the gym. And the best part? I have only been training for 1 week and my results are ALREADY visible. You couldn't possibly be disappointed... i'm literally so excited for the future and what we can achieve together, becuse without your help james I'd be lost".
EH May 2016
"Such an incredibly talented man, his knowledge of the Health & Fitness industry is never ending... I had the pleasure of meeting him while he was in Perth on holiday.. If you wanting to make changes to your life and want to get results then James is your man... His positive outlook on life is infectious and he is extremely motivating... I highly recommend him"
ElOISE CLARK April 2016
"Outstanding! James managed to create a workout and diet plan that was easy for me to follow and stick to! By far one of the best plans I've ever had! Week 3 of the plan was very intense and required some motivation from James and it was money well spent! He pushed me to my limit and beyond. Looking forward to the next 6 weeks of my plan! Bring it on. I would highly recommend James for anyone looking to achieve their fitness goals!"
Will Cann April 2016
* "Massive, massive thank you to James Monk and his personal training - and for getting me to 99kg. I couldn't have done it without your help - you are a legend!. If it was not for you, I would not still be going to the gym. You keep me motivated, vary the training so it is not boring or repetitive and most of all you have faith in me to achieve my goals. Thanks"
* "James Monk is a very professional, friendly and motivating personal trainer. He makes you feel very at ease and explains everything to you. He helps to build your confidence up without you realising it. Through his hard work care and attention he has helped me achieve my personal goals. I have lost 7 stone (yes 7 stone) in 6 months which is remarkable and something I would not have ever been able to do on my own. Thanks to the man! Hard to believe that personal training could do so much"
* "James is a Personal trainer whio is very friendly and knowledgeable - had let myself go last couple of years so wanted to get back in shape -doing some regular PT sessions at the moment for the next 4 weeks. I now have a regular exercise routine and diet plan. Actually using the equipment properly has been an education - thanks James Monk!!"
* "James Monk looks like a personal trainer actually does what he teaches and is around the gym training himself al lot. Knows a lot about fitness and how to get into shape. Follow what he says and you will get the results you want - nuff ssid"
* "Used James for personal training to lose weight and tone up prior to a friend getting married and the big day. Highly motivated guy who produced a training plan and more importantly a good nutrition guide, no more junk food! Worked wonders and I lost a lot of weight really quickly - recommended "
* "If you are in to Powerlfting or even Strongman James is a good guy to talk to. He competes at both events himself at a high level. Works with and has colleagues who are seriosly good so, lots of extra help around and all the wquipment and facilities you could ask for"
* "Key thing I learned from James was how important a good diet is when you are losing weight - combined with the exercise - did bot realise how "junk" my diet was! Feel great now and lost a lot of pounds"
