Join us in welcoming James to the ET Team!
James graduated from Washington State University with a Master’s in Kinesiology. While in school he taught undergraduate kinesiology courses and worked in the WSU Exercise Physiology and Performance Laboratory as an ultra-endurance triathlon medical researcher. His passion for fitness as well as health and wellness led to leading personal training, coaching CrossFit, and Olympic Weightlifting. He has a passion for coaching adaptive athletes and aims to bring light of adaptive athletics and exercise therapy to universities with exercise science, kinesiology, and strength and conditioning curriculum.
In his free time, James trains as an amateur Disc Golf athlete, competing in local tournaments. He also spends as much quality time as possible with his family going out to restaurants, participating in recreational sports, or just relaxing at home with TV shows and board games.
Thank You Wilfred!
We would like to extend a big "thank you!" to Wilfred James, who has served on the Pushing Boundaries Board since 2022. Wilfred was very generous with his time and talents as part of our Fundraising and Events Committee during his tenure here.
Wilfred is taking a step back from the PB Board, but we are thankful to have had Wilfred's expertise, and wish him the best in his future endeavors!
