Expert Fitness Coaching for your Teenager

sports fitness

Teenagers want to be be faster, fitter, stronger, but knowing how to train safely and effectively to achieve optimal performance whilst reducing the risk of injury or burn-out is key.

I’ve spent my career training teenagers for optimal performance in their chosen sport.

James is a fantastic strength and conditioning coach, I would definitely recommend Excelsior to any athlete looking to improve themselves. There is no doubt that James can help any athlete achieve the best that they can be.” Dom Hinchcliffe, basketball player.

Who is it for?

Players of all sports who are balancing school or college with one or more sports practices and matches. Players who are keen to improve their own fitness and want a safe and effective way of getting results. Players who have limited time in the day and week and need sessions that are easy to fit in.

What does your teenager get?

Weekly modules that contain exercise videos with detailed instruction on how to perform exercises correctly. Handouts with information on session plans, nutrition and structuring your training. Audio podcasts that explain the week’s module and give advice on how to fit it all in.

  • Prepare effectively for training and for competition through specific warm ups and mental strategies.
  • Plan weekly and daily nutrition intake that fits around training and studying.
  • Train safely in the gym starting with body weight exercises, progressing to dumbbells and then barbells over the year.
  • Run faster because they have improved their technique and their body is more efficient.

how do I start?

Advice on how to prevent and counteract knee problems was certainly helpful when Helen started complaining that ‘her knees were hurting’ directly after competitions. There is so much information, in a range of different media formats, its keeps you interested and motivated.” Christine Farr, mother of Helen (15, pictured right).

Need more proof? This video has some highlights and feedback from athletes and coaches on how it has helped them train effectively.

Client Testimonials

Georgina Rozario: England Scrum Half
I had the pleasure of having James as my first s&c coach when I was at University in Plymouth. I worked with him for 3 years and learnt everything I now know about training to the best of my ability. When I first saw James I was identified as a talented rugby player but had various injury and illness problems to contend with. By the end of my time with him I had become an athlete and later received my first international cap against the U.S.A.
