Being outdoors is in my DNA. My philosophy and passion for the outdoors has been developed over 25 years as a Physical Training Instructor in the Royal Navy. During this time and through my studies I came across the Norwegian term ‘friluftsliv’ (fril-uft-sliv) loosely translated to free, air and life. The opportunity to do activities outdoors can give you the dopamine highs and the mood regulating serotonin and anxiety reducing epinephrine neuro-chemicals. Embracing the friluftsliv concept with me training can be tailored to support whatever goal you want to achieve. This could be being guiding on a journey in the UK or overseas, providing consultancy work to increase you and your teams high performance capability, increasing a variety of developmental skills to aid both physical and mental wellbeing along with leadership skills. If however you feel you want to be empowered and have a desire to lead others on these types journeys in the outdoors tailored courses are available for a variety of activities.

"Our instructor, James, was fantastic. As there were only two of us (father/son) he was able to design the weekend Mountain Biking activities exactly around what we wanted to achieve. He was patient, enthusiastic and really knowledgeable. We learnt a lot over the two days and had an excellent time."
