Jamie Kennedy


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.

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. 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.

I've been training with Jamie now since the beginning of May and am now on my second course. I've been to other gyms and had other personal trainers in the past but nothing compares. Jamie has changed my diet, my mindset, my body shape, reduced my body fat to 20% and helped me shift those stubborn excess pounds - at 44 I'm not sure I could be in much better shape! I'm going to keep doing as he says and hopefully continue to improve my strength, fitness and body toning!! Thanks Jamie

Great trainer with good knowledge and experience. You will get the best advice (exercise and nutrition) and also motivation from Jamie and will therefore definitely see results. Can't recommend highly enough!

Best in the world! Amazing coach, who can make goals a reality, whatever they are! A winner!

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.

I started to work with Jamie 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.
