A lifelong athlete and collegiate football player, Jim has always looked for a better way to move. His pursuit of punting in the NFL led him to San Diego, CA in 2005. Training and working full time was necessary to supporting his dream. However, the cost on his body was great and he needed help to prevent a catastrophic breakdown and keep training. Finally, in 2007, Jim met Nic Bartolotta and experienced “E-Centric Strength” for the first time. One session was all it took and he was hooked. The recovery and controlled were unparalleled and Jim quickly undertook a 3 year apprenticeship with Nic directly. He became the “first student of the system.” Nearly 11 years later. He is still going strong.
The owner of Champion Flexibility (ChampFlex.com) in Solana Beach, CA, Jim is still looking for a better way to move and loves sharing this passion with his friends and clients. He loves helping people find ways to “play life at the level they want to.” For some of his clients, this is beginning or sustaining their NFL careers, for others, this is finding an extra inch or two to put the grandkids in the car or hit their 9 iron a few yards further. Through thousands of hours working one on one with people and in groups, he has gleaned a master level of knowledge about the DCT system. He also loves teaching all he’s learned to others. You’ll find his passion come out when instructing a class or developing an apprentice.
Jim and his wife Isa live with their two daughters, Chloe and Lily in Solana Beach. He is a graduate of Wesleyan University with a BA in Theatre with a focus on Architecture. When he’s not working or with his family, you’ll find him expanding his martial arts skills, working out, serving at his local church, writing, philosophizing or public speaking.
