James “Hitch” Furlow – Head Trainer
James is an IFBB Men’s Physique professional bodybuilding competitor. He has been working as a personal trainer in the fitness industry for 12 years. James recognizes that health is trending in the U.S. From superfoods to new exercise fads like bootcamp, yoga and crossfit, healthy habits are on the tip of the American public’s tongue. The desire to achieve an improved quality of life is driving consumers to pursue specific health and wellness habits, reading package labels and becoming more aware of what they are consuming. The problem is, it takes a strong support system of like-minded people to maintain healthy habits and achieve fitness goals. That’s why James loves Fit For Life, because we provide a welcoming community that we call the “Fit Fam,” where people truly thrive in becoming the best they can be.
