James discovered Crossfit after a friend showed him a video of the Crossfit Games on Youtube. The following morning he went to the closest box and took part in an “intro” class. He pushed himself so hard that first workout that he actually threw up his breakfast shortly after. Crossfit combined many movements such as gymnastics, lifting, and calisthenics all into one workout that composed the best functional and all around workout that had a direct correlation to his outdoor hobbies. Having been active his whole life with running, lifting weights, and competing in triathlons, he wanted a change from the typical gym scene. About a year and half after beginning the Crossfit journey, James decided to further his passion by attending the Crossfit Level 1 Seminar and began coaching at South Orlando Crossfit in February 2013. You will always see him keeping a close eye on technique and working to improve the athlete’s body mechanics. His passion(s) are health/fitness, and motivating others.
