Jim was not always into training. In fact when he got married about 20 years ago, he was at the apex of unhealthy. At that time, Jim made a decision to start living a life that would enable him to watch his children grow up. For the next 5 years, he started running 10k races and training using the old body building type workouts. The next several years were a rollercoaster between feeling committed to being healthy and not working out at all. As Jim reached his mid-thirties, his blood pressure elevated and he found exercising to be harder, especially when he stopped feeling motivated to run.
So instead, Jim found himself more dedicated to weight training and eating healthier. At that point in his life, he was eating clean without added sugar and a relatively low carb diet. Jim began focusing on increasing weights on the barbell and learning to move more effectively. Also, he began to participate in short triathlons as a fun way to stay motivated and in shape. Today, Jim finds enjoyment in powerlifting competitions and keeping himself healthy overall. With three kids running around, he is grateful to be able to chase after them and continue playing ball in local softball leagues.
For the past five years, Jim has been training small groups and one on one clients- “I love the positive impact I have on my clients”
