Here’s just a snapshot of the skills JT Ethos will employ to help you reach your goals. Of course every client is unique so we’d love to hear from you about your specific needs (just get in touch).

As programme director for all clients Jim uses his experience, knowledge and intuition to judge which skills to use at which time for the best results.

Weight Loss, Nutrition & Lifestyle. As the saying goes, “You Are What You Eat” but so too “You are What You Drink”. Furthermore, according to the studies of Dr Weston A. Price, we are all metabolically unique so one diet will never fit all. Metabolic typing is an eating plan, not a diet, that understands that we all have different needs depending on our genetics and our environmental demands.

For example Eskimos need a diet high protein and fat to stay healthy; likewise people with equatorial ancestry need a largely vegetarian diet to maintain good health. Environmentally, humans need more carbohydrate during the summer and women need more protein near menstruation. Using this research Jim will be able to provide the exact nutritional advice that will keep you at your best.

Once you start to fuel your body the way it wants to be fuelled you will experience some truly amazing results. Weight can seemingly ‘fall off’ and stay off, you will have greater energy, stop feeling sleepy in the afternoons, get better sleep at night and have more mental focus and clarity.

Correct all the little imbalances that have built up in your body and move yourself towards better posture. Teach your body how to move correctly so that it minimizes wear and tear, optimizes efficiency and energy expenditure.

This starts with a full body assessment of your muscles, your skeleton, your internal organs and your lifestyle and ends in a comprehensive personal plan that is unique to you, your needs and your schedule. Corrective exercise is extremely beneficial in post surgery rehabilitation and the latter stages of injury rehabilitation.

Sports Specific Strength & Conditioning. Are you truly training for the specific demands of your sport and your position within that sport? Are you taking into account your unique strengths & weaknesses and building those into your training plan? Jim will analyse both you and your sporting demands and use his expert knowledge both as a coach and as an ex-professional sportsman to develop a strength and conditioning plan that will yield the results and performance you are truly capable of.
Training that is personal to you. Commercial Personal training is missing the point – you will see the same people doing the same exercises week after week no matter how they feel, how much stress they are under, what time of year it is or how much they are progressing.

At JT Ethos we base your training on the results of your total body assessment and how you are implementing your unique personal plan.
By viewing whole person we can address how you are functioning in the areas of exercise, mind, nutrition and relaxation.

Sports massage therapy is hands on therapy using a combination of massage techniques to relieve pain and facilitate mobility. It can be used as a therapy in isolation to treat complaints such as lower back pain and tennis elbow. However at JT Ethos we use it in combination with exercise and lifestyle coaching to generate results even faster.

Associated Services

Due to our ‘total body’ approach we work closely with a range of other professionals in the following areas:

Physiotherapy is available on site through Midlands Physiotherapy Clinics. By combining physiotherapy with our holistic approach you get the benefit of acute injury rehabilitation and a comprehensive assessment to identify and correct the root cause of the injury giving you a rehabilitation service that leaves you stronger than before the injury and therefore less likely to suffer a repeat injury.
Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) & Counselling. The mind is the control centre of the entire body and the place of many blockages to change, healing and relaxation. When clients require help with ‘inner talk’ or mental clarity, we ask for the help of Kate Walker, an expert in Neuro-Linguistic Programming. Neuro-Linguistic Programming works to change pathways and associations within the mind to aid behavioural change and mental clarity.
When appropriate we work with Osteopaths and Chiropractors throughout Birmingham and have a clinic at the Guildhall Back Care Centre in Kings Heath and the City Centre.
Shaun McKeown of Inspire Reiki is a Master Reiki Practitioner and teacher who works with Reiki natural healing energy. Reiki treatments are suitable for men and women of all ages and can help to promote emotional healing, health and wellbeing. People commonly feel relaxed, calm and recharged after a Reiki treatment.
Acupuncture is thought to be beneficial for many conditions. Louise Kesterton from ARQ Acupuncture uses this traditional Chinese method to stimulate the body’s natural healing and optimal energy flow, whilst improving areas of weakness and restoring balance, promoting optimal health.
The C.H.E.K Institute a world-leading education centre for advanced training in holistic health and performance. It was founded by world-renowned educator, author, consultant, speaker and inventor Paul Chek who is an internationally-renowned expert in the fields of corrective and high-performance exercise kinesiology. For over twenty-five years, Paul’s unique, holistic approach to treatment and education has changed the lives of countless people worldwide. By treating the body as a whole system and finding the root cause of a problem, Paul has been successful where traditional approaches have consistently failed.  Education is the cornerstone of the C.H.E.K Institute. From rehabilitation to corrective exercise to high performance conditioning; from stress management to healthy eating to lifestyle coaching; health and fitness professionals from around the world turn to the C.H.E.K Institute for training and education. The C.H.E.K. Institute provides the academic structure for all JT Ethos staff, providing a model for health that gives a genuinely different path for our clients. As with Paul’s experience, after 7 years of study Jim is now finding that he is able to help clients succeed who have previously failed.
