James started at Recursive just a few months ago. Him and his wife moved to the area from New York just as the gym was re-opening after the COVID shut down – crazy times! You will see him at the early morning class consistently each week.
Why did you choose Recursive?
I chose Recursive because a friend of mine that I worked out with in NYC used to go here. He said the coaches were great and he had a great experience working out at Recursive.
What is your favorite thing about working out at Recursive?
That I can finally be in a gym! Until I started at Recursive I hadn’t been to a gym in over 4 months due to the quaratine rules in New York.
What was the biggest struggle you’ve had the last few months?
Dealing with the effects of the coronavirus to myself and my hometown as a whole.
What is your biggest accomplishment in the last month?
Recovering from the coronavirus back in March.
How has Recursive changed your life?
Working out is a great way to decompress and I’m glad that I can finally go to a gym and lift some heavy weight.
What advice do you have for people who are nervous to get started?
Scale the weights and don’t be afraid to ask questions!
What is something else fun you’d like to share about yourself?
I’ve attempted to get on American ninja warrior twice but was rejected twice! I’d love to try again. Maybe the producers would appreciate the tale of an accountant from Brooklyn traveling to the midwest to become a ninja warrior! 🙂
