Hey there! I'm TJ here - I'm the Owner of Mims Fitness, and Strength & Nutrition Coach. First, I'd like to thank you for visiting my website! A little about me: I am a NASM Certified Personal Trainer and Precision Nutrition Coach. I graduated from San Jose State University in 2008 with a degree in Advertising. I also spent 7 years working at Stanford University's School of Medicine.
As a Personal Trainer and Nutrition Coach, it's my job to apply my experience and education into all one beautifully packaged program so my clients get the most amazing results. I work with all sorts of different folks looking to build strength, improve flexibility, increase energy levels, and torch through body fat to reveal a strong, lean, and hard looking physique. I believe that strength training has a place in every program whether the goal is fat loss, hypertrophy, conditioning, sport-specific, and even if you're getting a little ripe in age. It can literally help everyone!
The styles of training I'm specialized are powerlifting, and bodybuilding - or those simply trying to train for aesthetics. My nutrition coaching will vary from client to client, but generally I prefer a flexible dieting approach, and do not write meal plans since they do not teach the client how to live a life free of nutritional rigidity. I'd much rather teach my clients how to eat for their goals without restrictions.
Now, a little bit about me...
In a nutshell, I just really enjoy taking long romantic strolls over to deadlift platform. The primitive side of me just likes to pick up heavy object and put them down for fun. That and I can not count past 5, so it's best to leave my reps low and the weight really heavy!
My style of training varies on my goal and the program I'm following, but I typically prefer to train 4-6 times per week. Some of the different types of training I do are powerlifting, power building (mix of bodybuilding and powerlifting), boxing, and when appropriate, I'll do some sport-specific training.
When I'm not busy working with my amazing clients, I often found drinking far too much coffee - simply the most delightful beverage known to mankind. I'm a big fan of the New York Jets & New York Yankees. When I'm not working, I like to enjoy the simpler things in life: Hanging out with my family (Wife, two children, and two dogs), enjoying the beautiful California weather, cooking & BBQing, and even laying low by watching some TV playing a late night video game. I grew up playing video games, so when time allows I still like to school my wife and kids at Mario Kart.

Obtaining a strong, lean, and healthy body can often be a life-changing experience, but often an goal many are unable to achieve. This reasons vary from a lack of motivation, knowledge, direction, accountability, or the inability to cope with social pressures.
Having me as your physique coach, I can help you get on the right path...
I'm looking for dedicated clients who would like to receive personal training a minimum of 2 times per week.
My clients are people who typically want to:
✔️ lose body fat/gain muscle/tone
✔️ have increased energy throughout the day.
✔️ boost their confidence levels.
✔️ look and feel great
All personal training packages include a free and simple nutritional program to follow to help expedite your progress!
You can train with me at either of these two locations:
Located right in the heart of Sunnyvale, CA - BBA Gym is located practically next door to LinkedIn and Apple. A brand new semi-private personal training facility with a diverse group of enthusiastic and knowledgeable independent trainers, BBA Gym serves as an exceptional venue that is kept remarkably clean, and promotes a safe and fun workout environment.

I have been working with TJ for the last 9 weeks, and this has probably been the best 9 weeks. To begin, TJ and I sat down and conversed about goals, limitations, what changes I was willing to make, and those that just would not fit into my lifestyle or family dynamics. Taking all into account, TJ was able to create a program that has been very easy to commit to, and maintain. He is very easy to talk to, listens, asks questions, is incredibly caring and supportive, and does not treat an "off day" like the end of the world.
