Jimmy Barnes



James, aka Jimmy, is a co-owner and coach at TrueFIT Athletics. Shortly after college, he was introduced to CrossFit when he applied for a coaching position at a local box. He immediately fell in love with the training and fitness community. A year later, the gym closed and James decided to take matters into his own hands by opening his own facility – TrueFIT Athletics.

Prior to CrossFit, James’ training background included wrestling and weightlifting. He also hiked the tallest Mountain Summit in the lower 48 states. In recent years, he’s participated in several CrossFit competitions, which have allowed him to stay sharp and challenged. “I’m passionate about building an amazing CrossFit Community. Seeing people go through the same growth and accomplish the same things I did, is the most rewarding experience ever.”
