James Mills

James is a highly effective coach that challenges what he sees your body needs. He never sits back and administers a workout, rather he is there with you encouraging, assisting, and helping you make the most of your effort. He founded Synapse to offer a much-needed counterpoint to the mindless, one-note fitness currently dominating our society. There is a more effective way than slogging through high-rep burpees or running endless miles while you can barely squat down and play with a two-year-old. 

James danced ballet professionally for 12 years all over the country. He played almost every sport during his childhood and continues to use his body playing in the great Colorado outdoors. He holds a B.A. in Performing Arts from St. Mary’s College of California and a J.D. from the University of Florida. He is a CrossFit Level 1 coach, Mobility|WOD Movement & Mobility Specialist, and is FRC Certified, but more importantly, he doesn’t subscribe to any method, but continues to learn and incorporate various tools and approaches. He is a proud member of the Online Movement University.
