About Us

Picture of Jago HolmesPlease allow me to introduce myself. My name is Jago Holmes and I am the author and creator of this marathon training program - 'Marathon Training For Beginners.' I am also the owner and principal trainer here at New Image Personal Training in Halifax, England, one of the North's largest independently owned personal training companies. 

We regularly work with over 150 clients each week in our exclusive 1 to 1 studios.

I am a fully qualified and experienced personal trainer. My company, New Image Personal Training has been in operation for the past 10 years. We consistently get great results from our one to one clients and I want to share my knowledge and success with you now.

I have written many newspaper and magazine articles for local press as well as creating a range of digital eBooks and weight loss packages. I regularly present weight loss seminars as well as running my acclaimed '8 week weight loss challenge'.

I studied at the University of Leeds, completing my training with YMCA in 2000 after 3 years when I attained the YMCA Personal Trainer award - one of the highest and most respected qualifications available in the UK for Personal Trainers.

As a personal trainer I often work with clients who want to start running seriously and one thing that regularly comes up is a desire and a dream of completing a marathon.


But one of the biggest problems I find that most runners face is being able to follow and commit the time to using an effective and structured marathon training program.


And this is a real problem, but one that needed fixing so that my clients could take care of their other responsibilities in life like children, work and family to name but a few and still manage to spend enough time training so they continued to make progress and get fitter.


So I spent 6 months planning and researching this new program...


red tick box    It needed to educate at the same time as being easy to follow.


red tick box    It needed to take up minimal time, something which most runners have little of.


red tick box    It needed to bring about fast results in the quickest time possible. 


red tick box    It needed to slot right in to a busy and hectic lifestyle so anyone can do it!


...and I then set about designing this program, using all of the hands on personal training experience I'd gathered over the years and with the help of a number of clients who were training for or had previously completed marathons, I tested, refined and improved the system until I finally created the PERFECT solution.


A complete marathon training program which describes in detail exactly how to safely and progressively train for a marathon in the shortest time physically possible.



I Have Spent Hundreds Of Hours Researching, Testing And Developing This System So That You Don't Need To Search For Answers...


This Marathon Training program Has A Proven Track Record Of Being Extremely Effective, Yet Quick And Simple!


My new system had to include all the major elements of a marathon training program, but it also had to include strategies and techniques to reduce training times at the same time as increasing running distances and endurance.


So I created - 'Marathon Training For Beginners'... a simple solution for any runner who wants to run a marathon whilst avoiding all the potential pitfalls and injury risks associated with endurance running.
