Jim is a longtime recovered alcoholic and drug addict. He began his love affair with physical fitness, nutritional balance and spiritual serenity back in the 1980's, while training as a yearly participant in the NYS "TOUGHMAN" competitions, the pre-curser to the present MMA competitions.

Jim has since become an International Fitness Professional and Lecturer, who has been involved in many community health and fitness initiatives. He is an Alliance member of the American College of Sports Medicine, a Committee member of the National Society of Physical Activity Practitioners in Public Health and a major supporter of the "EXERCISE IS MEDICINE" initiative. Mr. Simpson is a contributing lecturer at the Narh-Bita College for Exercise Studies in Ghana and has written several research papers on the topics of exercise and fitness. He has designed and developed very successful nutritional formulas for both men and women to promote health.

Jim has multiple fitness certifications and has designed numerous programs for all body types. He has developed several fitness formats which utilize his knowledge and experience to help students maximize their health benefits.
Working with others to help them recognize the benefits and fun of fitness has become one of Jim's goals in life. He presently is the Executive Director of the fitness Website - The Body Brigade and he is working to develop community health and wellness programs in the urban communities in his area.
