James T. McMillian, a NASM certified Personal Trainer, as well as certified in Trigger Point self-myofascial release techniques, and native of Mt. Vernon, NY, obtained his B.A. in Visual and Performing Arts from Syracuse University. Since the age of five, James’ passion for fitness and excellence was evident as he thrived in football, wrestling, track and rugby, which extended through high school and college. Through athletics, he developed a deeper love for fitness, which led to his immense passion for health and aiding others in their pursuit to reach their optimal level of fitness. After being recognized for his own fitness, he was later signed to the Wilhelmina Modeling Agency in 2011 and featured regularly in the Men’s Fitness Magazine, Muscle and Fitness Magazine and Nike campaigns. Early in his childhood, James and his family received devastating news restricting him from participating in athletics due to Asthma. Being the fighter he is, he laughed at the report and committed himself to proving to the doctors and others that despite difficult obstacles, greatness can be achieved with the mental fortitude to succeed. Through his vibrant personality, he works to convey to clients his belief that training should be an experience and never a task. His mantra is “if your heart beats you are already motivated to succeed. Nothing can stop the will of heart.”
