For Jimi the driving factor towards pursuing a career in the fitness industry happened early on when he got caught by the fitness bug and wanted to achieve some form of greatness in the sporting field. Jimi has always aspired to improve body composition and athletic performance for himself and his clients, whilst continually seeking to find a better science to apply.
It is difficult to self-learn in the fitness industry as there are many misguided concepts. Over the years of being in the industry and applying key principles Jimi has gained the knowledge and experience to increase athletic performance as well as educate them to monitor themselves under a high return – low risk framework.
