Hi, I'm James Nochimson, DPT, CSCS! I'm a physical therapist and personal trainer serving the Fort Lauderdale area who works with individuals and groups to help them reach their fitness goals. My clientele is very broad based. I've worked with beginners having little or no background in nutrition/exercise to advanced athletes for whom I've designed intense workouts and provided specialized training for upcoming events. I have experience working with special needs, as well as injured clients for whom I fashion ways to progress despite their limits. As a people person, I enjoy working with the different personalities I encounter that have varying body types at all fitness and skill levels. I'm very aware of the fact that each client is unique. I can tailor a diet and workout regimen to help you reach your goals. Clients often struggled with a workable fitness/nutrition plan before starting with me. Heck, many of my them had no plan in place at all. I believe that goals not written down are just wishes. These same clients now have SMART goals. SMART stands for Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, and Timed. I'm not going to tell a 300 pound man he'll have a six pack in 90 days. Maybe if it's a six pack of beer, but sculpted abs require more effort. :). I can help you as I've helped my other clients to lose weight, acquire a healthier lifestyle, increase energy levels, and enhance physical performance. What makes me different, you say? I am certainly not your cookie-cutter trainer. I will push hard, but find the time to make you laugh. I think fitness should be fun. Yes, you should actually enjoy it! I want to make my passion your passion. I will take the time to listen to your vision, your ideas, what's going on with you and how that aids or interferes with your progress. We can figure out a program that will best suit your needs. Every BODY is different. What's best for one person often doesn't work for another. My whole family's in the health and physical therapy industry so I embrace a clinical approach based on current knowledge and common sense. In all honesty, many of my clients have seen impressive, head-turning results. I hope after reading this, you'll give me the opportunity to aid you in reaching your fitness goals! My facility: University Fitness located at 7166 N. University Dr., Tamarac, FL 33321. I also provide training at clients' homes when necessary.
James is an excellent trainer
I have done at home PT with him and I always have good results. Hopefully I will be able to start up again soon.
Jim is knowledgeable, skilled, patient and personable. I’d recommend him to anyone!
I had the best best experience working with Jim! His people skills, compassionate nature, and sense of humor makes you forget you’re even working. Highly recommended!!
Jim is simply superb , his methods of practice and training kept me motivated always. Workouts are planned for 45 mins , which covers everything in that particular day depending on which activity we do (chest, arms, legs, shoulders, abs etc) . Training wise he gathers and understands the physical condition of our body and then plans well, also executes well. You are awesome James . !! Always positive attitude. More...

Excellent Trainer !!! Would highly recommend !
Highly recommended! Pleasure to work with. Very knowledgeable and professional.
Jim is always positive and really encouraging during our sessions. Appreciate the balance of hard work and humor!
After years of training with others, a highly regarded physician referred James. Exceeds expectations, focused, knowledgeable, follows up and makes every session enjoyable. We train multiple times weekly and is now part of my daily routine. Highly recommended. More...
If you lack the motivation to workout, I highly recommend you come see James. He’ll give you the focus and the knowledge you need to train correctly!
I have been working with James since few months. I have been able to lost 6 pounds and reduced my body fat percentage from 29% to 22. 5%. The expertise and guidance he’s provided through my strength training have been amazing. James is always encouraging and has great knowledge about his profession. His persistence keeps me focused. He has always motivated and helped me to make right diet choices. He is pushing me hard through training session in a very positive way. I never thought I would enjoy dragging myself out of bed for an early morning workout. I look forward to every session. More...
If you're looking for a trainer to assist you with some healthy changes in your life, call James! Wish I could give him 10 out of 5 stars? ! Motivating, educated, encouraging, knowledgeable. Listens to your goals & gears workouts to achieve those goals. Recommend highly! More...
I recommend James to be your personal trainer because he has helped me to lose over 40 pounds on his program. He will understand if you have a bad day here and there, but his ultimate goal is to get you in shape and feeling good.
Over the years I have had a half dozen trainers trying to find the one that would help me reach my goals without aggravating my injury, all of them fell short. No matter how hard I thought I researched or how clear I made my limitations to them I always ended up out of commission and at the doctor.I cannot put into words how happy I am that I was able to find James, with his background in Physical Therapy he has been able to not only get me to workout without too much pain but has also taken the time to explain and help me better understand my injury. He is also the first trainer to really work with me on my nutrition he doesn't just ask what I ate he wants to see the numbers and adjusts them as needed. Unlike a lot of trainers I have dealt with in the past James really loves what he does, and that comes across in every session with him. More...
Jim is an AMAZING trainer!!! He's truly dedicated to seeing his clients reach their fullest potential. He's knowledgeable, accommodating, charismatic, and demonstrates a degree of professionalism rarely seen today. Thank you Jim for helping me get in the best shape of my life!!! More...
Jim has trained me for the past few years and it's been great! He goes at your own pace and will work you as hard as you want to work. Plus he's knowledgeable about the science of why certain exercises are better or more beneficial than others. More...
The Building Buyer
Jim helped me out so much. He's professional and will help you accomplish your goals. Highly recommend. -Dylan
James has been my trainer for about seven months and I have seen awesome results. He got me into great shape for a dive trip in the Fall and we are working toward another trip in the summer. James is very respectful of your time and fitness goals. These are not cookie cutter workouts. His knowledge of nutrition and physiology comes from years of study which he seamlessly incorporates into the fitness goals. Have to say his smile and sense of humor makes working out with James almost fun! But you still leave in a sweat! More...
James has been a great trainer to work with. He is great at making adjustments for all of my goals. He keeps me on track and seeing the results I hope for. I would recommend him to anyone needing an extra boost for their fitness goals. More...
I have worked out 4 days a week with James for 5 years, he very knowligble in physical training and nutrition. I deal with a shoulder issue and he has been able to work around it and push me in every workout session.
He keeps my workout challenging, and interesting, I’m 56 years old and I’m good condion thank you James. More...
Jimmy is by far one of the most knowledgeable personal trainers I have come across. Not only does he have an extensive background in exercise science, he was able to help me work around some of my injuries while putting me through rigorous workouts. Highly recommend him to you or your family. Plus we all need that person who can motivate us and connect with us on the personal level at the same time. Thanks gymwithjim More...
My experience's with Jim have been nothing but positive. He was extremely responsive to my scheduling needs, often compensating at the final hour without any complaints. When I revised my fitness goals, he would always prepare accordingly introducing new routines and pieces of equipment to work with. He pushed me when necessary but still maintained a sense of caution when I was nursing an injury. His experience as a PT was vital in incorporating new stretches or exercise methods to help me gain the most from my workouts. I highly recommend, especially when considering his flexible pricing. More...
Great trainer who gives very good workout advice as well as a detailed diet plan. Would highly recommend gymwithjim
I’ve been working out with Jim since August 2017. Jim’s expertise, professionalism and personality is what keeps me coming back! The results are amazing! His nutritional plan coupled with three workouts a week have resulted in weight loss and increased muscle mass!! Thank you! More...
James at GymWithJim is not only a certified Personal Trainer, he is a qualified one at that! I have learned so much about exercise and nutrition that without his help, I don't think i would have been able to reach my goals
I was very nervous changing trainers and did a lot of research before I started working out with James in January. He was quick to respond to all my questions and concerns. During sessions, he knows how to push when I need it or has a corny joke ready to make me laugh. I've struggled with lower back problems, he easily adapts and modifies exercises to meet my needs. I highly recommend him to my family and friends. More...
Where do I even begin?! It's as simple as this, James Nochimson rocks!
If you are looking for someone who is well informed in the fitness industry and knows what to do to help you reach your goals than he is the guy for you. He has helped me tremendously and has taught me so much, not only about fitness but about nutrition too. He will push you because he wants your success just as much as you do. Along the way of my fitness journey with Jimmy, he was not only the best trainer, he became a lifelong friend too. I highly recommend him and have no doubt in my mind you won't be disappointed. Superb trainer and an overall awesome guy. More...
James Nochimson is an excellent personal coach. I have been training with GymWithJim for several years. James always shows up on time with a smile and creates a fun and unique workout.
I have been training with Jim about 2 months now and coming straight to the topic here,
- He keeps me motivated about working out and following diet plans.
- He has ways around injuries(I am saying this as I have bad shoulder, elbow, back and knees even before I started training with him and work outs are going great)
- He is flexible about timings.
- He is totally passionate about being a personal trainer.
- HE KNOWS WHAT HE IS DOING AND HE IS VERY GOOD AT IT.
So be patient and trust Jim. :) More...
