He finds deep pleasure in helping people "level up," watching not only their physicality improve but also emotional and mental well-being as well. Having travelled to over 20 countries, he observes "I have met successful people that are not physically fit but I have yet to meet, on any continent, a physically fit person who isn't also successful outside the gym."   

When Jamie is not serving in the National Guard, playing rugby or heading to the wilderness he enjoys spending time with his wife Deanna. She is a fellow veteran, fitness enthusiast and their son Brody; who can usually be found climbing to some precarious height in the gym, requiring his parents to engage in hostage negotiation techniques to get him back down.
