About Me

Hi, I'm James! I'm a physical therapist and personal trainer serving the Fort Lauderdale area who works with individuals and groups to help them reach their fitness goals. My clientele is very broad based. I've worked with beginners having little or no background in nutrition/exercise to advanced athletes for whom I've designed intense workouts and provided specialized training for upcoming events. I have experience working with special needs, as well as injured clients for whom I fashion ways to progress despite their limits. As a people person, I enjoy working with the different personalities I encounter that have varying body types at all fitness and skill levels. I'm very aware of the fact that each client is unique. I can tailor a diet and workout regimen to help you reach your goals. Clients often struggled with a workable fitness/nutrition plan before starting with me. Heck, many of my them had no plan in place at all. I believe that goals not written down are just wishes.

These same clients now have SMART goals. SMART stands for specific, measurable, achievable, realistic, and timed. I'm not going to tell a 300 pound man he'll have a six pack in 90 days. Maybe if it's a six pack of beer, but sculpted abs require more effort. :). I can help you as I've helped my other clients to lose weight, acquire a healthier lifestyle, increase energy levels, and enhance physical performance. What makes me different, you say? I am certainly not your cookie-cutter trainer. I will push hard, but find the time to make you laugh. I think fitness should be fun. Yes, you should actually enjoy it! I want to make my passion your passion. I will take the time to listen to your vision, your ideas, what's going on with you and how that aids or interferes with your progress. We can figure out a program that will best suit your needs. Every BODY is different. What's best for one person often doesn't work for another. My whole family's in the health and physical therapy industry so I embrace a clinical approach based on current knowledge and common sense. In all honesty, many of my clients have seen impressive, head-turning results. I hope after reading this, you'll give me the opportunity to aid you in reaching your fitness goals!

What to Expect

We first meet to discuss goals and we assess your current fitness level. From here we are able to establish your baselines and create your plan in order to attain your goals.

Client Success Story

The holidays came about and one of my clients gained about 20 pounds. This didn't set well with me or the client so we put our butts in gear. Since January the client has not only lost the 20 pounds he gained over the holidays but also lost an additional 5 pounds. I'm very happy for my client and he's happy to as he tells me, "Thanks Jimmy, you got me looking better naked!"

James was an excellent trainer, with a ton of knowledge for any question I asked him. He did an amazing job of listening to my goals and where I want to go, and he gave me guidance to achieve it.
