Jim Jensen is an Adaptive Fitness Trainer. If someone has special challenges with exercising, they may need an adaptive fitness trainer. He works a little more closely with the medical professionals than the typical fitness trainer.


An adaptive fitness trainer takes special course work to receive their certification, and Jim actually went on to get a degree in Adaptive Fitness.
