We could go on and on naming all of Jim's accomplishments and credentials, but what sets him apart from all other strength coaches is that his knowledge in strength sports exceeds all others in Northeastern Pennsylvania. With over 30 years in the health & fitness industry, Jim has proven time and time again that his methodolgies in strength training work. As others age and have to give up on their competitve edge, Jim keeps getting better and STRONGER. If you want to add size and strength as part of your arsenal, he is the man to get you there.
