About James

James began his athletic career in track and field, where he was recruited to compete for the Division 1 University at Buffalo in 2013. At the University at Buffalo, James found powerlifting and fell in love with the sport. Today, James is a powerlifting competitor and has recently managed to rank #12 in the world with an 875lb squat in the 181lb weight class. He plays flag football in Long Island Flag Football League with Team Ethan’s Army, a team that strives to bring awareness to Duchenne's Muscular Dystrophy disease through gatherings and team collaborative events. James has also taught and trained Ninja Warrior, Gymnastics and is an active stunt performer for small commercials. James pushes his boundaries with fun and challenging exercises to explore his physical limitations, and wishes to provide the same experiences and results for others.

I’ve had the opportunity to train alongside James a number of times while powerlifting and this guy knows his stuff! He is a world class athlete and very knowledgeable, I am always able to learn something new from him. In addition to his abilities he is also a very easy going and approachable person so no matter what level of athlete you are there is no doubt that you WILL succeed as a client!

I've been working with James for a few years now. He records my numbers and made charts of my lifting progress! He's creative and pays attention to detail. He also works with my godson and is such a great role model for him! Highly recommend working with James!


I’ve trained with James for almost two years now and he is as dedicated as they come. The attitude he brings to each workout is spectacular, always a joy to be around. I can fully trust any advice he gives me because he has put in the work and has the numbers to prove it. You truly can’t fake his strength. I’ve seen him calculate various charts and graphs in order to keep track of success and make his way towards goals. You’ll definitely get your money’s worth, as well gain a great friend.
