In addition to his years of experience in all facets of professional training—working across the spectrum with everyone from competitive bodybuilders and professional athletes to those in the general population—Jim Cordova is himself an award-and title-winning drug-free bodybuilding competitor. Among his many titles: INBF World Champion (2004); WNBF Mr. America (2007); WNBF Mr. Universe (2007); and WNBF World Champion (2007).
Jim has trained many leading female figure athletes, including those competing in the Best Body Athletes and Miss Fit Body competitions, and in the Miss USA Pageant. He has himself appeared in numerous publications as a fitness and bodybuilding model, including Muscle & Fitness, Men’s Fitness, Fitness Rx , Maximum Fitness, REPS, Men’s Exercise, Exercise for Men Only, and Natural Bodybuilding & Fitness.
Jim has written extensively about matters relating to health and fitness training and his articles have appeared in national publications including Men’s Exercise, Exercise for Men Only, and Natural Bodybuilding & Fitness.
Jim is a trainer of tremendous technical and practical knowledge, but also one who is at least as much of a “theoretician,” that is, someone who is versed not merely in the “hows” of fitness and exercise, but the “whys” as well. Never content to merely follow trends and replicate the methods, techniques, and results of others, Jim is an innovator on the cutting edge of the industry.
