James Atkinson is a certified fitness coach, actively involved in the health and fitness arena for over 20 years. He has been skinny and unathletic, overweight and out of shape, a long distance runner, a “gym rat,” and competitive bodybuilder before serving nine years in the British Army airborne unit as a member of 9 Parachute Squadron Royal Engineers.

He developed his fitness ambition as a direct result of not being physically gifted. His fitness achievements did not come easy, but his main strong point was and still is perseverance. He often stumbled and fell down completely during his journey, but he always got there in the end.
“If I were to start back at the beginning and I had my future self to guide me, I would save many years of mistakes, be able to spot the bad advice from the good and avoid the usual pitfalls, be able to start off with the right mindset and ultimately hit my fitness goals in a fraction of the time it has taken me.”
Now James wants to help others reach their respective fitness goals as quickly and efficiently as possible and experience the wholesome feeling of achievement, a feeling that has to be earned. His approach is a product of his personal experience and fitness education. He has used these routines and plans over and over again both for himself and his clients and trainees.

The most successful fitness and weight loss stories are from those who can self-motivate and are willing to learn.

Hi, I’m James Atkinson (Jim to my friends and readers). I’m a qualified personal trainer/ fitness coach, competing bodybuilder and have a burning desire to help others reach their fitness goals. I have been training for over fifteen years. This training has taken me from long distance running to bodybuilding competition.

I have been fat, skinny and muscle-bound throughout my fitness career and I really feel fulfilment from helping and advising others when it comes to their goals. So I have designed this home workout training routine to effectively burn fat, tone muscle and develop cardiovascular fitness. In this day and age, the pace of life is fast for many, and there are probably millions of people that would say that they haven’t got enough time to lose fat, tone up or work on developing their fitness. But my home workout routine is not something that will take up hours of your day, I can tell you that you won’t even need to train every day, you just have to follow the routine that will last less than 30 minutes for a maximum of four days per week and each week, you will have a slight upgrade to the previous week. This type of consistent progressive training is a sure fire way to get your fitness results! If I were looking for fat loss, muscle tone and total body fitness and I did not have access to a gym, this is what I would do. Be warned! Although this is a “stand-alone” fitness routine, I would NOT recommend this to the beginner to fitness, some of the exercises may be too advanced for someone just starting out. If you do happen to be a beginner, I would recommend my “Home workout for beginners” fitness routine. The home workout for beginners routine was designed as a “prequel” to this and if you were to start with it, and then decide to try this, you will find that it follows on very nicely. Good luck! Il see you on the inside! Please remember that I am always happy to help where I can, so give me a shout if you get stuck or have any questions.

Jim’s Weight Training & Bodybuilding Workout Plan: Build muscle and strength, burn fat & tone up with a full year of progressive weight training. (Self-Help, Health & Fitness)
“If I were to go back and start my weight lifting journey from the beginning, this is the plan that I would follow” Hi, my name is James Atkinson (“Jim” to my friends and readers). I am a qualified fitness coach, ex-airborne forces (British army) and I have a very diverse past in health and fitness. From personal training, long-distance running to competition bodybuilding, it is fair to say that I have changed the shape and condition of my body more than most. Since my early teens I have been involved in weightlifting and resistance training of some description. I am now into my thirties. Starting off in a powerlifting environment, the doors to a new world of resistance training were thrown wide open in front of me. The possibilities of what could be achieved with the correct weight training and diet inspired me to start work on building my own body into something that I could be proud of. However, it would take me around eight to ten years before I found the correct path and begin to actually get some results. I will admit that I am not the quickest of learners, but if I was given the correct advice from the start, today, I would no doubt be leaps and bounds ahead of the physical development that currently hold. This book has a full year of progressive weight training laid out in the form of four “subroutines”. Each one of the workouts is a progression from the previous one. This means continued muscular development. And the great thing about this kind of training is that you can repeat it year after year if you wish. Some of the information included in this book: • Vital fundamental material on training mentality, planning, diet and motivation. • 4 X 12-week progressive exercise plans • Explanation of the training year. Why you are training in this way • Illustrated descriptions of all exercises included • Accountability charts to keep you on track • Optional healthy cooking recipes reader bonus • And more This book is written for anyone who is interested in developing their body with the use of resistance training. This type of training can be used not only for building muscle mass but for fat loss and toning alike. If you are new to the weightlifting and bodybuilding world, you will benefit a lot more from this book, but on the flip side; if you have been in the game for a while and would like a few ideas to develop your knowledge further, you will also find this book useful. I wish you the very best with your training and I look forward to hearing of your success! Keep on lifting!

Amazon Verified Purchase, ReBel
“What he delivers is much, much MORE than knowledge. He delivers Value. Well worth the price of admission and then some!”
Long distance running is much like any other fitness training. If you want to improve, you need a good plan that has a progressive nature.
If you are new to this game, you need a solid foundation to build on.
Having a running program is not the only thing that you need. Sound advice and running tips should be taken from someone who has “walked the walk” …… Or in this case; “Ran the run”
Hi, my name is James Atkinson from Jimshealthandmuscle.com. I’m a qualified fitness coach / personal trainer and I have a fair bit of running advice that I would like to share with you.
When I was around 18 years old, I was a terrible runner! In fact, I failed the basic fitness test for army entrance on running alone, and I failed big time!
Several years later, I was clearing 1.5-mile running circuits in 8 minutes and 22 seconds and could easily run a marathon any day of the week!
I would like to share my knowledge and training experiences with you. If you are a beginner when it comes to running, this information will no doubt give you advice that will probably not have even crossed your mind before.
If you are already a runner and are looking to make more progression, you are also in the right place.
I know that it is easy to get stuck on a training plateau, so I have also added some information and training methods to this book that will help you leave the plateau behind.
Some of the chapters include:
Why should you take my advice? My story…
Accountability, Commit To Your Goal!
Where to start
When to eat, what to eat
Your bread and butter training “Steady-state”
Training on a track
Running for time
Running for distance
Running with weight
Dealing with blisters and chaffing
Staying injury free
Putting it all together and your training plan
All of the information that I provide is written from my own experience as a long-distance runner.
I believe that by learning from my mistakes and my advice, you will hit your goals a lot quicker than making these mistakes yourself. Believe me; some of these mistakes can be very painful! As you will soon find out from some of the anecdotes that I am about to share with you.
So grab your running shoes and let’s get started!

Jim’s Weight Training Guide, Superset Style!: A Resistance Training Method For Weight loss, Muscle Growth, Endurance and Strength Training (Self-Help, Health & Fitness)
Hi, I’m James Atkinson (Jim to my friends and readers). I’m a qualified fitness coach, competing bodybuilder and have a burning desire to help others reach their fitness goals.
I have been training for nearly 20 years and this training has taken me from long distance running to bodybuilding competition.
It is fair to say that I have learned the secrets of weight loss and fitness from my own personal journey. I have been fat, skinny and muscle-bound throughout my fitness career and I really feel fulfillment from helping and advising others when it comes to their goals.
This book is all about the very well-known but little practiced (correctly) method of training known as “Supersets”.
My aim with this book is to give you the knowledge so you will:
•Be able to identify the workload that best suits your training goal
•Effectively add supersets to your existing workouts
•Use the method “full time”
•Plan to use supersets to target your weaknesses
•Be in a position to devise your own workout routine using this method
From my first year of resistance training, I knew of the superset concept but it was many years later that I started to use it to good effect in my training and later, my clients’ training too.
It was through my own exercise and learning that I was able to fashion this method into something that could be used in all types of workout.
Whether you are looking to build muscle, burn fat or even train for endurance, you can:
•Use supersets to shorten your workouts
•Add volume to your training
•Add variety to your average training session
This book includes examples of full workout routines for different levels of fitness and different fitness goals. These can be followed directly from the book, but my main focus is to pass on my knowledge so you can adapt your training or tweak the featured routines to great effect.
I will wish you good look and I’ll see you on the inside. Let’s get started!
FITNESS FOR WOMEN OF ANY AGE: women’s health and fitness routines, cellulite and weight loss to toning and sculpting (Self-Help, Health & Fitness)
Workout routines for women. A quick and easy guide to firm bums, tums arms and more
I know that many of my readers are female so I decided to help out you guys a bit further and get more specific and outline some great workout routines for women.
In this book, we will look at the unique problems that a lot of you gals will face when it comes to weight loss, fitness and aesthetics that are different from us males. Things like:
How to get rid of cellulite. Cellulite and fat distribution
Fitness and the menopause
weight lifting for women
Also included is a short but effective illustrated home workout, that you can do to target the usual problem areas.
A different genetic makeup means a different set of challenges!
Fitness is not just limited to your youth and I believe that there is not an age restriction when it comes to a starting point.
It is, in my opinion, harder for females to get the physique and proportions when it comes to body shape than males. This is all down to the genetic makeup. Some ladies are gifted with a great shape and are confident with their body. It does seem however that this is not the majority of the female population.
This book has been written to help you target the problem areas that you believe you have and I think that you will be surprised at how working towards your goals before you have seen any results at all will give you a huge confidence boost with my fitness plan for women
I hope this book helps you on your journey to a healthier, fitter and happier you.
Your Year Of Bodybuilding: Get BIG gains from your next training year (Self-Help, Health & Fitness)
5-star review By Per Hedberg. “After buying many bodybuilding books with the ultimate quick fix routine, James Atkinson’s is a relief, finally here’s a bodybuilding book which talks about how to plan your training for a whole year and how to make steady gains year by year. I can truly recommend this book to anyone who has been jumping from routine to routine and want to make consistent gains and who has a long range goal, like entering a competition, with his or her training” This is a no BS easy to follow guide for a full year’s bodybuilding training routine. This programme can be repeated year after year for continued muscle development! Hi, I’m Jim. Like millions of people around the world I am a normal 30 “ish” year old guy who has been inspired by the great bodybuilders past and present. From my early teens I chose the life of muscle building and like most other gym rats I made huge mistakes when it came to my diet, training and outlook. If I knew what I know now when I started my muscle building journey, I would have saved myself years of guesswork and my development would have been so much better than it is today. There are a lot of training strategies out there and all too often “would be” bodybuilders are bombarded with information. The bodybuilder will also expose themselves to this while searching for the “Ultimate training routine” or “Best supplement”. Of course, there is no such thing. In this book You will get: A full years progressive training broken down into 4 sections (This can be repeated year after year) An in-depth explanation of the theory behind each of the four training sections (easy to understand) A full illustrated list of the exercises that you will be doing, along with detailed exercise descriptions. A breakdown of how to work out your diet An in-depth guide on how to work out your own bodybuilding diet An insight into supplementation Most importantly, the fundamentals for successful bodybuilding that are all too often overlooked are highlighted. There is much more covered in this book and I would recommend it to anyone that is looking for a solid training routine that has a good structure for continued muscular development. If you wish to compete in bodybuilding shows or you are serious about packing on some muscle over the next year, this one is for you!
