March’s Client of the Month


Name: Jim Miller

Birthday: October 20

How long have you been working out at Bodyshop Athletics X? 2 years in May

What is your favorite food? Any type of meat and potatoes

What is your favorite exercise? Deadlift

Did you have any goals? How have you accomplished them? I had a Deadcember goal of 315 and beat it by 35 lbs. to pull 350! Coach Matt kept me progressing a little each week as we trained. Each little step added up to a big achievement! It was the first real lifting goal I have set and accomplished. I have learned the correct way to exercise and it has made all the difference in the world.

Why is working out important to you? What keeps you motivated to pursue health? I want to continue a good quality of life for many years to come and working out is a key component to that. It’s rewarding to see your goals achieved, your strength increasing, and your present quality of life improving.

What is one of your favorite or most memorable moments so far at Bodyshop Athletics X? Definitely hitting and far surpassing my deadlift goal. Working toward that in squat and bench as well!

How would you describe your experience at Bodyshop Athletics X to a friend? I should have done this long ago. Training with Matt has been fun, challenging and a huge learning experience! If you want to grow with your weight program, Bodyshop X is the place to do it!

Is there anything you would like to mention? Thanks to Jason for creating such a positive environment that stresses Christian values and family. I really relate to and appreciate that!

Jim Miller is always a pleasure to train. He comes in every session ready to put in work, no matter what is on the "menu" for the day. Over the past year we have been consistently setting and crushing goals. With the changing seasons comes different goals. Jim is an avid barefoot water skier. During the spring and summer it was not our goal to see how much we could squat, bench, or deadlift. However he loves to learn new techniques! We practiced various different ques with moderate weights. This allowed Jim to practice and feel what worked well and what did not, while not leaving him too sore to ski during the warm months. Once summer ended we started putting all of our technique work into lifting heavy!  His biggest lift came last December with a huge PR deadlift at 350lbs. Over 35 pounds more than our original goal! 

 Jim has not slowed down because of this though. He is continuing to come in, set new goals, and continue to work hard. With summer right around the corner our goals have changed again. His muscle gains went very well over the fall and winter. I know he is excited to start some high intensity workouts and get ready for ski season!–M.L.
