Jim was born and raised in St. Maries, Idaho. Although active in sports through high school, he chose to focus on academics in college where he would attend Boise State, graduating in 2001 with a degree in athletic training. He then went on to work for 10 years in collegiate sports, eventually returning to Boise State in 2011 to take the position of head football athletic trainer. With a depth of knowledge about athletics and movement, Jim joined the Boost team in April of 2018 to help in the creation of a high quality air pressure treadmill. His goals as a Boost team member are to help create a comfortable, family atmosphere and to bring a product to market that provides simplicity to the user at a high value. When he is not working, Jim enjoys exploring the outdoors of Idaho, camping, spending time with wife and 2 children, and trail running.
