JAMES TATEM

Coach

After school and a few seasons of football in the NEFL, Tatem found himself at his heaviest weight of 360lbs and needed a change.

In 2017 after years of going to the commercial gym scene and making no progress, Tatem discovered CrossFit. This high intensity training with a focus on health, diet, and new exciting movements were the pieces he had been missing. The community and fun pace of the class setting brought him back to his days in team sports and sparked his motivation.

A nutrition challenege in 2018 was the catalyst for a 140lb weight loss and interest to coach others to find their best selves, a self they never thought they could achieve

Tatem now knows that the "impossible" and the "never gonna happen" atttitude is a fallacy that can be corrected with community, exposure to new and challenging things, and burpees!
