About James

I am looking to work with individuals that are ready to make a change in their life, physically, mentally and spiritually. I have been in the fitness industry for a little over five years now and my first and worst client was me. Pushing a BMI of 31 and weighting over 220lbs at 5’ 9” I was at my limit with health issues. I grew up on video games and skateboarding as a child but was never athletic, as I matured, I started picking up more bad habits which aided to my overall conditions. by my early thirties I was diagnosed with degenerative disc syndrome, spinal stenosis and a ruptured disc in my lower back. I had been living off anti-inflammatories and pain killers and was starting to lose control of my left leg from nerve damage and could not function normally. Long story short I was told I needed multiple surgeries to help eliminate some of pain. Surgery was not an option for me after seeing so many people still suffering after surgery, so I changed my like completely. My aim is to help educate others on how to correct lifestyle habits, learn what the body needs physically and nutritionally and how to maintain that. So if you are ready to change I am here to help.
