James Thomas

I am a full time Joplin Firefighter/EMT & Head trainer at 24 Elite Gym! I hold my personal trainer certification through ACE and nutrition through Precision Nutrition. I’ve always had a passion for health and fitness and nerd out on the science of the human body!

Clients often ask “what’s your training style?” Honestly your trainer shouldn’t have a “style”. My job is to get you optimal results, and that includes making it as enjoyable and easy to adhere to as possible!

I’ve competed in the world finals of the Scott Firefighter Combat Challenge and also hold a pro card in NSL men’s physique!

As a firefighter I work 24 hour shifts at a time and the schedule can be hectic! I understand trying to balance a healthy diet with convenient enjoyable foods on a busy schedule. I work with you & dig into your lifestyle to figure out the best way possible to get the results you want based around your lifestyle!

    The Trainer will provide the coaching, supervision, advice and support that you will need to achieve your goals. Apart from the initial consultation (and the first personal training session if taken immediately afterwards) each personal training session will last 60 minutes (a “Session”).
    You understand that the results of any fitness program cannot be guaranteed. Your progress depends on your effort and co-operation in and outside of the sessions. In particular you acknowledge that individual results may vary and no particular result is guaranteed by your Trainer.
