James was born and bread on the Isle of Wight in the United Kingdom but originally moved to the United Arab Emirates in 2000, and has been back and forth ever since.
A product of CrossFit Bath in the United Kingdom, James was a talented rugby player and American footballer but discovered his love for lifting weights early in his sporting career. James can often be spotted early in the morning lifting extremely heavy weights on an almost daily basis, but rarely has he ever been spotted completing anything cardio-related.
Since commencing his CrossFit journey back in 2009, James has only got fitter, stronger and better, and hasn't looked back. An incredibly gifted Olympic weightlifter and possibly one of the UAE's strongest men, James prides himself on his training experience and helping those he works with.
