The Process

For Athletes, or those clients looking for performance-related goals, our advanced strength and conditioning programmes may be the right choice for you. These plans consider every aspect of performance in detail, from injury risk, prehab and/ or rehabilitation, to providing a detailed analysis of the required fitness attributes required for you to perform at your potential.

This detailed “needs analysis” is then used to determine your training, considering your current fitness qualities, sport, time of season, match schedule, position and more.

We have successfully implemented our S&C protocols with athletes from all areas, including premier league footballers, endurance athletes, NCAA Division 1 scholars, international level youth athletes and more.

All strength and conditioning programmes follow this detailed protocol, developed by Josh Kennedy MSc, ASCC. Josh is an accredited Strength and conditioning coach with the UKSCA, and has been awarded the grade of distinction for his MSc programme in strength and conditioning. The programme was developed in conjunction with Jamie Kennedy, using over a decade of experience working with professional athletes to establish the best route for athletes at different stages in their careers.

If you truly want to reach your performance potential, the high-quality strength and conditioning coaching at FX is the best path for you.

I went to preseason with Jamie for a couple years some in season training. We worked specifically on strength development speed and also an agility to get me ready to re-join my club at full fitness after the brakes including before and after my wedding/honeymoon. The results are I got when working with Jamie were 2nd to non-helping me improve all my target areas and also drop body fat and gain lean muscle at the same time. I put the work I did with Jamie down as one of the biggest contributing factors to the successful and injury free seasons we have had.

One of the reasons for joining FX was to do weights I had never felt comfortable doing weights shunning the weight area in my local gym for fear of making a fool of myself and not knowing what I am doing. Through training at FX I have gained the knowledge and confidence to now approach weights with a plan knowing how to do them properly with the proper form and why they are integral to getting the best results for my ability.

Over the following 6 months I saw my muscle mass increase and body fat drop I became confident with how my body shape was progressing. On top of that the results in races started to improve my short races were getting faster and my endurance events I was feeling stronger an all-round better performance which is what I wanted to achieve from the start

Overall I cannot praise Josh and all the team at FX enough all the staff are very friendly and helpful and create an environment where you can ask the silly questions without being judged or be made to feel inadequate. josh’s knowledge and PT skills have been invaluable in helping me to achieve my goals and I will continue to train there to make sure I’m always pushing myself to achieving the best results I can.

I came to FX in 2015 to enhance my performance before moving away to university in America. I wanted to achieve an optimal level of performance as I would be competing regularly in the states. I was very eager to start as member of my family already attended FX. I saw Josh for my consultation and found the information given very useful. I decided to join FX because I believed this was the best approach to achieving my goals. I started in the summer of 2015 and went into the gym with some understanding of how to train.

Working with Josh made me learn how to train properly, he taught me better technique and how to deal with the mental side of working out, such as believing in myself when lifting heavier weights but also understanding how to train when dealing with injuries. I suffer from lower back pain so many of my work out have to be adapted when my back flairs up. The approach to training and the change in nutrition came very easy to me as Josh was always available if I had any questions.

I have been with FX for 3 years now, continuing my training when I come back from university at Christmas and during the summer. During that time I have achieve weight loss , a decrease in body fat percentage and confidence when working out. FX is very different to other facilities as the the trainer take time to get to know there clients, this makes the training programs more personal this helps the trainers know the best approach on how to help each client achieve their goals. My goals going forward with the help of FX are to keep my body fat percentage below 20%, I wish to achieve this by the end of summer 2018.

My background is fell running and I have done this for many years I have always maintained a pretty good standard but never doing anything with my diet or cross training my results had plateaued and I was unhappy with how I looked and felt. On hearing about the Team at FX I went down and explained my goals thoroughly with Josh my PT who helped me understand what I wanted to get out of the training and how best to go about it in a way I could understand to help me achieve my goals in the long run.

The stages of training were set out perfectly for me to aim at with clear guidance on nutrition when and what to train and what and when to do it, it started with 3 sessions a week with Josh in the gym and a further 2-3 sessions to do by myself but every time I was learning more about how my body works and week on week I was seeing results. I won’t lie sometimes it was a struggle but knowing you have someone with you to guide you and show you how to do things properly keeps you focused on your goals.

I started to work with Jamie at the end of the 2012/13 season after speaking to Kieran Tripper who played at Burnley with me. Trips told me that he worked with Jamie at Fitness Experience in the previous pre season and knew a few other players that trained with him and they all highly recommended him.

Following a short break I started to work with Jamie and we trained for about 5 weeks. The first week Jamie did a few sessions to help me get back used to working at a high intensity at which point then started to target the specific areas I wanted to improve. These included speed, power and strength. The programme was structured around my precise needs and I even had to do a couple of sessions over face time during a short break in Marbella.

During the training we focussed initially on technique and then moved onto power and strength work, this is an area that we don’t really work on during the season, with the aim of enhancing my personal body performance . We did a balance of sessions in the gym, running and sprint work along with plyometric sessions and Pilates.

People ask me if I improved because of this and all I need to do is show my results. I increased my weights capacity (squats, dead lift etc) overall by around 20% each and as for speed work and speed endurance I improved on my ‘Yoyo’ test when I got back to the club by 6 levels on last season. The fitness coaches and the manager commented on my high fitness levels when I got back and asked what I had been doing to build this over summer. They were very impressed with my improvement in all areas.

I have worked with Jamie for a few years both pre and during season.We worked on improving my strength and power for the step up to the Premier League and now continue to work on my fitness each pre-season. The Sessions are great and I massively felt the benefit almost straight away. I would recommend going to see Jamie if you want to take your sport seriously and make the next level. Thanks for your help.
