Jamie has worked as a PT and S&C coach for over 10 years. He specialises in weight loss and performance.
Jamie started his career in 2007 at Burnley FC’s stadium fitness where he was first introduced to the elite side of sport and performance development. Jamie’s role was Fitness and Health manager and he started to work on a private basis with some of the players for the academy through to the first team. Alongside this, Jamie’s roles included establishing programmes for teams, colleges, schools, as well as leading the fitness/health programmes within the centre. Jamie continued private work with athletes and personal training clients alongside a new role of Fitness Manager at Roefield Leisure in Clitheroe. It was in this role Jamie first came up with the concept of Fitness Experience after seeing the need for a bespoke facility dedicated to welcoming all levels to achieve their goals and, as they say, the rest is history.
Since opening FX in 2011 with his late father John Kennedy as a mentor in business, Jamie has delivered thousands of sessions to a range of clients, from international athletes to rehabilitation clients. To say Jamie has a vast amount of experience would be an understatement. Some of Jamie’s proudest moments as a trainer has come through his charity work helping people raise money for local charities by training them for fitness events including one client losing 6 stone in 5 months to complete a 10K road run. He has also helped a number of professional/international footballers with pre-season fitness camps each year since opening in 2011. Rehabilitation and complex programmes including clients recovering from heart attacks, broken bones, open chest surgery, muscle and ligament damage and obesity have been a large part of Jamie’s role. Body compensation plans are something that has also seen success not only in the gym but also on stage taking clients through bikini camps and placing 1st in 2 shows.
Jamie is a father of 2 wonderful children, Charlie and Archie, and puts his experience trying to juggle family life and running a business as one of his greatest achievements. He has competed in a number of fitness based events, including Tough Mudder, numerous half marathons, the Yorkshire three peaks and 10k road runs as well as having played football at a decent standard as a youth and throughout sixth form.
