Get to know the man behind JG Golf Fitness
My name is Jamie Greaves. I am a strength and conditioning coach and avid golfer. As a child I picked up an injury which meant I couldn’t play contact sports, so I looked to golf. I fell in love with the sport and never looked back. I started taking my game seriously and at age 16 I achieved a scratch handicap.
At 18 I enrolled at a golf academy in Orlando, USA. It was an eye-opening experience where young golfers were treated like the up-and-coming athletes they were. Golf was taken seriously and after returning to the UK I started playing competitively.
After years of focusing on my own game, I transitioned into fitness, with the intent of combining my two big passions of golf and training. My belief is that aspiring players like myself shouldn’t have to go to America to get the calibre of fitness and performance training that they need.
Like my clients, I put great emphasis on continually improving. I hold numerous qualifications and am always striving to learn more about my craft to ensure those under my instruction get the best possible training.
I currently work with golfers of all ages and abilities, from Tour winners to those just starting out in the game. So, no matter your skill level, we can work together to improve your game and overall fitness and health.
My passion for golf is alive and well. I try to play as often as I can, receive regular coaching from some of the best instructors in the UK and am re-entering the competitive scene.
