“He is one of my most important health resources! He is also one of the kindest people I know.”
Jim has been my fitness “guru” and good friend since I moved to Santa Barbara in 1988. When I first started working with him 24 years ago I was in my mid-forties and was really only interested in how he could make my body LOOK. Over the years I’ve come to learn that this is no longer one of my fitness goals and, quite the contrary, I’m pretty much only interested in how Jim’s expertise and professionalism can help me FUNCTION and FEEL! Jim has worked with me while I was recuperating from hernia surgery, a badly broken shoulder and arm and then while I went through surgery for breast cancer. I can not imagine going through these things without Jim on my “team” and by my side. He is always up on the latest nutrition trends as well as the newest information about resistance and balance training. There isn’t a question he will not research and answer thoroughly. He is one of my most important health resources! He is also one of the kindest people I know.
My husband started working with Jim about eight years ago. Before Jim Gourley he HATED working out and refused to set foot in a gym or anywhere near exercise equipment. He has really changed his mind and now sees how much his body and his golf game have improved and understands why I’ve been such a loyal client of Jim’s for all these years!
