Josh Kennedy MSc, ASCC, CSCS


Josh has specialisms in body composition coaching (including body transformations) and sports performance coaching. Through his academic background, Josh has an in depth understanding of anatomy, physiology, biomechanics, nutrition and psychology.  If you’re looking to transform your body, mindset and/ or performance, Josh has a proven track record of getting results!

My Background

Prior to opening, I was midway through a sport and exercise science undergraduate degree, and working as a Personal Trainer in several gyms. In this environment, I came across so many people who spent years working hard, dedicating plenty of time a week to the gym, and a lot of effort to “eating well”- but getting NOWHERE! I’d been there too a few years prior to this- I thought it was about working harder, without considering recovery, nutrition, sleep, stress, exercise execution and more. But once I made the change into a more integrated approach, my own results started to take huge leaps forward. I knew I could help more people to improve the way they see fitness, so when Jamie discussed with me with the idea for Fitness Experience, I knew this could be a way to make an impact on all the people who were willing to work for it, but had no idea on how to get the results, as well as those who simply didn’t know where to start, or even those who just didn’t know how to get to the next level!

Time With Fitness Experience

Since opening, we have changed hundreds of lives (Don’t just take my word for it- check out our testimonials). Not only has our approach achieved countless body transformations, but also people excelling in their sport, or achieving lifelong goals- or even just transforming into happier, healthier people with less limitations.  Since opening, although I’ve delivered over 10,000 training sessions with Fitness Experience, this is only a small part of what I do. The results come not only from awesome training, but also from working through our system to transform your nutrition, sleep, stress, focus and productivity.  I’ve been lucky to have the opportunity with Fitness Experience to help people achieve their goals. It’s always great getting the message of how you’ve transformed some lives- whether that’s the message from a holiday from about how they feel great,  the call from college athletes who have achieved university scholarships overseas through consistent high level performances, the text to tell me about the first call up to national  or international level competition, or simply the email that details a small part of the impact that our programme has had on their life. And I’ve even had the opportunity to push myself in the process, whether that’s through Olympic lifting, body composition training, the various running events I’ve competed in, or the so called “fun” stuff like tough mudders, it’s been awesome completing these events alongside our team. So, if you’re still reading- get in touch! I can help you to achieve your goal. Speak soon.

Josh is an absolute legend when it comes to training. As someone who has never had much discipline, he's stuck me on the straight and narrow and put up with me being a soft sod at times. Workouts with Josh are enjoyable - even leg day! - and he's fantastic at getting the best out of people and I cannot recommend him enough!

Overall I cannot praise Josh and all the team at Fitness Experience 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 Fitness Experience 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 Fitness Experience. I saw Josh for my consultation and found the information given very useful. I decided to work with Josh because I believed this was the best approach to achieving my goals.

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 Fitness Experience 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.

My initial reason for joining Fitness Experience was well being. I was struggling with training and general well being and I very quickly felt at home. The expertise, time and care shown by all the staff but particularly Josh has been outstanding. The personal in personal training is the key. They get to know and support you the person not just your goals. They take an holistic approach to training which is refreshing. The exercise and nutrition plans are specific to you and not a one size fits all. I can’t think of anywhere else I’d rather go to train - FX care and that really is personal training in my book.
