“Having always kept an eye on the Big Dawg Blog, I returned there every so often KNOWING I wanted to learn from James and his team. I had a list of 5 year goals, and one of them was to be OPEX (OPT at the time) certified. I teased myself in 2012 by going to an athlete camp where James demonstrated his knowledge on Aerobic based training for mixed modalities. This was the tipping point.”
