I️ have been bodybuilding for 3 years now, and have recently competed in my first bodybuilding show.
My love for Fitness started my junior year of high school when I joined the wrestling team there. After finishing up my wrestling season in my senior year, I continued to workout and better myself mentally and physically. I find it now a priority to utilize my skills to help my family, friends, and clients succeed in their health needs.
I️ have lived all across the country which helped me exposed me to many different training styles that I can better help others achieve their unique goals.
I am hoping to continue my education inside and outside of the classroom, and use my skills for the better! I hope to meet and train with some of you soon!

My name is Jim Cooper and very excited to join the team at Duvall Fitness as a Personal Trainer. Presently, I am certified through Washington State University as a Personal Fitness Trainer and ACE and NSCA certifications and I am a NAUI certified scuba instructor. Additionally, I two degrees; a BS in Business, a BS in Biological Sciences and have spent several years in the computer industry.
I have had a life-long interest and involvement in fitness and the outdoors. I grew up in a small community in the Sierra Nevada Mountains in California. The area where I grew up is an outdoor enthusiast’s paradise. I spent my youth working on local farms and ranches. I worked in the woods harvesting timber. I drove trucks, heavy equipment and farm equipment. I lived 40 miles from Lake Tahoe and all the incredible skiing available in that area. I started skiing at Squaw Valley before I was a teen ager and have been skiing since then. Heavenly Valley, Alpine Meadows, Sugar Bowl, Mount Rose and many other areas around Lake Tahoe and Donner Pass were my stomping/skiing grounds in those days. I have hiked, hunted and fished all over California, Oregon, Washington and other areas in the Western United States and Alaska. I worked for the US Forest Service as a fire fighter on hot shot, helicopter and tanker crews in the Tahoe and Plumas National Forests in California. Even though “fitness” was not really a consideration at this point in my life, indirectly it played a huge part. You learn the value of eating a good diet, getting plenty of sleep, taking time to recover and paying attention to pain!! You also learn that fitness has a direct bearing on how well you live your life and how effective you are at your job. These are all the same principles that we apply to a healthy and fit lifestyle today...
