Raised in Missouri with 11 siblings. Most of whom chose paths in the armed forces. James found his love for fitness while he was serving in the infantry of the United States Marine Corps. Fitness was always second nature to James, who often chooses his bicycle over the convenience of a vehicle. Owning a gym has always been a top priority for him and after years of hard work and planning he can finally call Body Bar on 7th his own and he can't wait to share his love of fitness with his clients in central Phoenix. James has been training for over 8 years. James opened 4 gyms with other companies before opening Body Bar on 7th. James is certified with National Council for Personal Training. James also has certifications in TRX, Boxing, and Weight Management.
