Owner, President of Jim White Fitness & Nutrition Studios
Jim graduated Summa Cum Laude from Youngstown University in Ohio with a B.A. in Nutrition. He is credentialed by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics as a Registered Dietitian and certified by the American College of Sports Medicine as a Health Fitness specialist. On November 1, 2005, Jim opened his first Jim White Fitness & Nutrition Studios on Shore Drive in Virginia Beach. He soon outgrew this studio and opened a larger one in November 2006 on Laskin Road followed by an additional location in 2009 off Great Neck Road, both in Virginia Beach. Jim and his team have helped hundreds of people lose thousands of pounds. Maybe that’s why Virginia Living readers have voted Jim White Fitness & Nutrition Studios one of Virginia’s best personal training studios. Jim is currently the National spokesman for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and has the reputation of being one of the top health professionals in the country.
In fact, Jim has been honored with a 2011 President’s Council on Fitness, Sports & Nutrition Community Fitness Award. He is one of just 38 individuals across the country given this honor for making sports, physical activity, fitness and nutrition-related programs available in their communities. As a community leader, Jim is a regional spokesman for the Alzheimer’s Association and has teamed up with the nationally recognized Junior League as their chairman to tackle the childhood obesity epidemic. In December of 2010, he started his very own Jim White Community Fitness Foundation, raising money for school fitness programs, holding food, clothes, and toy drives, serving food to the hungry, and offering free fitness services for people in need.
