Introduction: *****Important for in home training: the base price is if you travel to me at my location in Tamarac, there is an additional fee for me to travel to your home which is based upon my mileage/drive time to get to you****** **I work in the Tamarac, Coral Springs and Parkland area, my address is 7166 N. Unversity Dr. Tamarac Fl 33321. Do not contact me if you are from the Miami, Hollywood, Adventura area if you are unwilling to drive to my location. Willing to drive to perform therapy/training within a 6 mile radius** Hi, I'm James! I'm a physical therapist and personal trainer serving the Tamarac, Coral Springs and Parkland area area who works with individuals and small groups to help 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! My facility: University Fitness located at 7166 N. University Dr., Tamarac, FL 33321. I also provide training at clients' homes when necessary. I like that I can make a difference in someones life. When a client comes to me and tells me that they've for example: "Fit into a pair of jeans they haven't fit into years" "Got a complement from a loved one or coworker on their body transformation" "Made it up the stair without huffing and puffing" These things really make me happy and I put everything I can to best make sure my client's are happy.

Gym by Jim is just awesome in every way possible!! When I started working out with Jim I had a self inflicted S1 (SCIATICA) nerve pain issue that radiated from my lower back all the way down my left leg through to my ankle. Jim very carefully and methodically put together an in person 3 time a week 45 minute phyical therapy/training program that was very thought out and effective. The pain over 3 months gradually decreased and I can say today the pain is gone. I struggled with this pain for 2 years prior to meeting Jim.He is always available and we continue to train virtually to maintain a pain free life.

Working with James was an interesting journey to say the least. For once I was looking forward to exercising. He is incredibly familiar with various workout regimes and styles, and tailored my workouts to my specific needs such as grip strength for rock climbing. Its also a fun experience as we crack jokes and laugh throughout the workout. Training with James make being consistent with my workout easy. I was working out previously but my form and technique was off and James really helped get me on the right track to avoid injury. Highly recommend looking into sessions with him if you are looking to get into exercise, if youre trying to amp up your routine, or if you had specific areas youre looking to work on.

Jim is simply superb , his methods of practice and training kept me motivated always. Workouts are planned for 45 mins , which covers everything in that particular day depending on which activity we do (chest, arms, legs, shoulders, abs etc) . Training wise he gathers and understands the physical condition of our body and then plans well, also executes well. You are awesome James . !! Always positive attitude.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    This includes all your nutritional guidance and anything I deem necessary to reach your fitness goals.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    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.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I'm always doing continuing education. The main reason people do continuing education is to keep their certification up to date. This is one reason I do it. BUT, the main reason I do continuing education is for my clients. This business is always changing daily and I need to be up to date my field so I can deliver the best product. Whether in be participating in seminars, orientations or ordering material online I feel it's best for my clients.
