I was born in Rochester, NY.
I am a competitive Ironman triathlete, I hold my Master's degree in Public Health, and I taught health education and nutrition internationally with the US Peace Corps.
I am obsessed with board games! Also, although I'm an ultramarathoner and Ironman, I once weighed in at 320lbs and couldn't walk one mile without stopping to take a break.
I think fitness should improve your life internally. We should all celebrate what our bodies can and can't do for us, and find ways of moving them that make us feel good.
When I need an escape, I'll either get cozy in my living room and play board games, or I escape to the desert for some camping and relaxation!
I am committed to creating a safe space where anyone can feel welcomed, included, supported, and encouraged to achieve what they're working for.
After my class you'll be dripping in sweat, you might hate me, and you won't be able to stop smiling about it!
James has no upcoming classes in next 7 days.
