Working with Jae helped boost my confidence and believe in myself. Training your body doesn't take just dedication, you have to have time (at least 30mins a day) to work on yourself and discipline. The word Discipline is easy to say, but in our day to day activity there’s so many temptation that can ruin our motivation. He helped me to plan my diet, how I can start my morning and end my day with healthy nutrition. He suggested taking fruits and nuts daily and avoid dairy, it might sound simple. But again, once I started implementing and following his advice, I saw big results from my energy level and gradually into body result. We train 30 minutes a day depending on your work schedule, you’ll have one an one evaluation with him, whats your body goals and how to achieve it. I love that he incorporate boxing in between our session that helped me sharpen my mind and stay aware with my surrounding. We split our training focusing in different areas of our muscle, he showed me proper way to do certain exercises to activate your muscle and how to avoid injury. He always remind me “Mind and Body Connection”, and it works!!! In 3 months, I started to feel the results in my body, muscles that I’ve never thought I’ll be able to train it. I saw changes in my muscle tonality and overall my perspective in healthy eating. Big Thanks Jae!!!! I highly recommend training with him, he’s very informative and experienced trainer, he won’t fail you! More...

J has done a fabulous job with our 12 year old son Jacob. Jacob had an interest in boxing, and though my husband didn’t support this training at first, he now agrees that this has been such a great thing for our son. Jacob has had the following results in just a couple of months: Much improved foot work, incredible self confidence gains , 10 pound weight loss, and stamina and attitude improvement. We have been thrilled with this investment in our son and highly recommend J! More...

Jay is a great coach and a great guy, he knows what he does and will not let you give up. He will always encourages you to achieve your goals. Don’t waste your time and money going with those personal trainers with the big belly ( sad but true ). More...

I started working with James to regain the strength that I had lost due to a chronic pain issue I have been dealing with for the last 3 years. His workouts get me in and out of the gym in half the time, without sacrificing results. In the 12 weeks I have been working with him, my strength has been regained and inches have been lost. James knows his stuff, he works with you and your goals, he was flexible and able to adapt his plan to my sometimes challenging limitations. I am very glad I made the investment to work with James and look forward to continuing to make progress towards my goals. More...

I have been working with James for 3 months and it's been fantastic. I never thought I could be in such good shape.. He is my first personal trainer and my experience has been motivating and one of the best overall in terms of gyms and other fitness options in RTP. James is a great professional. His work outs are challenging with noticeable increases in intensity in the training with every session which has pushed me to improve even when i thought i couldn't. He is also very knowledgeable and makes sure he explains the reasoning behind every movement. James is also very flexible with the schedule which makes it easier to work around tight schedules. I feel really pumped with a sense of real accomplishment following each session! Most importantly, working with James who I consider 'a very good person' (so positive, patient and unfailingly encouraging) makes all the difference and it's great knowing I am in good hands.

J has pushed me to lift heavier weights, higher reps, and more frequently than I've ever been motivated to do on my own and helped make sure I have proper form to optimize results. I have seen fantastic results including visible toning, weight loss, and improved strength. He is flexible with my schedule and has been great at meeting me where I am and challenging me to do my best! More...

Training with J has been great. He does a really good job of balancing workouts by keeping things interesting and fresh - moving between boxing, weight training, and core - while also maintaining focus on areas that need work. He packs a lot of good stuff into the 30 minute sessions, and provides encouragement and valuable feedback along the way. More...

In order to succeed in life you must surround yourself with the right people. My wife and I wanted our teenaged daughter to get healthy in both body and mind.....and it is understatement to say how much James Edwards has helped her during personal training sessions. James is not only extremely knowledgeable about nutrition and exercise but he is someone who also is a life coach and mentor to our daughter. James has guided her to succeed not only during the times they are training but also has taught our daughter to be more self aware and her confidence has gone through the roof. If you are 10 or 100 or any age in between....there is no doubt that James will help you achieve your goals. So with that being said, thank you James and keep up the good work. You are a true Champion. More...

I started with J last month (April, 2017). He's awesome! I appreciate his holistic training approach; teaching and following up on eating habits/changes in addition to exercise. The 30-minute sessions are intense and effective; always switching up the exercises. I'm already seeing change in my body, improved sleep and energy level! J's flexible with my work schedule, which makes evening sessions perfect. I just bought my boxing gloves today and am excited to incorporate boxing into my training. I highly recommend J! More...

Jay is very attentive and really cares about you throughout the whole process. I've never really been into the gym scene, but after working out with Jay and him showing me how to properly work out to get the best results, I don't know what I'd do without the gym! Not only will he show you how to work out properly, he'll also show you how to eat right so that you can be the best you. Highly recommend him! More...

I have been a gym rat for the past 10 years and thought that I was in good shape, until I started taking boxing training with James. Definitely worth every minute as I feel as though I have grown when it comes to my fitness journey. I would recommend training with James Edwards to anyone, as I am confident they will not be disappointed. More...

I would recommend training with J to anyone. I was never big on working out because I felt like I didn't know what I was doing. I called J and he has changed all of that for me! I work with him about 4 times a week. He is great at explaining the movements and making sure my form is correct. The exercises never gets old and I am constantly challenging myself applying what he teaches me. Some of the exercises I do while working with him I would have never thought j could do. I feel ten times more comfortable going to the gym on my own now. He motivates and pushes me when I would have given up while working out by myself. More...

J is an excellent trainer! When I tell him that I am unable or don't like doing certain moves because they are too challenging or awkward for me, he listenings to me and gives me a different exercise instead. I never see the old move again.

Professional boxing training is one of the fastest ways to maintain weight control, lose unwanted body fat, relieve stress and add more fun to your workout. You won't find boxers training on a machine or doing a jazzercise class, they're doing workouts that not only make them better athletically but also produce rapid fat loss results. I have worked out with Coach J for a number of years now and I have found no other workout that gives me the combination of cardio, strength conditioning, stress relief, and weight loss/ control that training like a boxer does. Coach J likes to say that all you need to complete a workout you carry with you everyday. Learning to train like a boxer is a fantastic way to spice up your workouts and get back to basics. If you're up to pushing yourself a little, and did I say relieving some stress then Coach J will show you how. Not only is he a great trainer, he's an all-around great guy too. More...

This is the first time I've been able to stick with an exercise program for longer than a week. That's because J always keeps it interesting. Really important if, like me, you don't find the standard gym membership very motivating. J's boxing workout has me feeling healthier and thinking clearer in a little under a month. The fact that his approach is patient but progressive, is really helpful. More...

Q&A

I realized the struggle of many who want the right answers to losing unwanted fat and acquiring the physique that is wanted but are frustrated due to countless accounts of misinformation, myths and diets. This compelled me to make personal training and coaching a career to help you obtain what I know you can with the proper information and training.

Because I'm a trainer that knows I will get you what you want if you are willing to do what I ask of you.
