Guest, Jim Nolan
As a personal trainer for over 20 years and battling MS for over 13 years, I bring a deep knowledge of functional, corrective & adaptive training specific to the MS and chronically conditioned community. In 2008 when I received my MS diagnosis and weighed close to 300lbs, I decided to focus on nutrition and exercise to fight the disease after I was hospitalized for 2 weeks. After one year and over 117lbs later, I realized that with proper nutrition and correct exercise methods, you can and will get stronger and healthier while fighting MS.
I'm now a Master Trainer and Co-Owner of Thrive Fitness Studio in Warren, Rhode Island alongside Lauren Smith, who also battles MS and is a Barre Instructor and Personal Trainer. We continue to help those with MS, Cerebral Palsy and other chronic conditions while providing hands on training to other certified trainers to help them better understand how to use appropriate training methods.
Utilizing my multiple certifications and education through AFAA, ACSM, ACE, NASM and NFPT, I have developed many exercise and nutrition strategies to help my clients over the years and I look forward to a continued future with Lauren by my side, training those who are chronically conditioned.
