Jim attended the University of Oregon, where he received a B.S. in Exercise Science and a Master’s degree in Exercise Physiology. He is also certified as an ACSM certified personal trainer and USA Triathlon Level 1 Coach. His health and fitness experience includes work in the fields of cardiac rehabilitation, personal training, and triathlon coaching. Growing up, Jim gravitated toward almost any sport, including football, basketball, baseball, running, skiing, golf, weight training, and cycling. Through this passion, he became intrigued with human physiology and performance, which led to him studying exercise and movement science. Now Jim enjoys training clients of all ages and abilities to help them progress toward their goals. Whether the goal is functional strength, balance, changing body composition, general health, or athletic performance, he believes in creating a plan and then applying steady progression and consistency to help each patient achieve their goals.
