Personal trainer Orlando




My name is James Carlson and I am an NASM certified personal trainer and nutritional coach. I offer a complete program of fitness and nutrition. Want to reach your weight and fitness goals? You need to address both of these things and I can help you do that.

What sets me apart is that I get results. Being 45 years old, I know what it takes to get lean and stay that way. When you are in your 20’s, it doesn’t take much, which is why there are so many 20 year old personal trainers. As you age, you have to be smarter about things.

Let me show you how to get fit without restrictive diets and without giving up all of the things you love.

Personal Training

Skip the gym and train in the comfort and safety of your home or office. The best way to stick to a fitness program is when the program comes to you. There is no need to get motivated to go to the gym, because I bring it to you, along with a personalized workout program.

Your personalized workout will include core work, resistance training and it will keep you in the “Burn Zone”. That means that you will continue to burn extra calories for hours after your workout ends.

The workout will be mini circuit style and takes about 35 minutes. I bring all of the equipment to you and will constantly change the program to keep things interesting and to make it more effective.

Nutrition Coaching

Want to reach your goal weight? You need to think about nutrition, but that does not mean that you have to switch to a boring meal plan.

I can make any diet work for weight loss by working with you to implement small changes over time. As a certified nutrition coach, I will monitor your nutrition and check in once a week to suggest improvements. Learn how to eat the food you love and get fit without being hungry all of the time.

It is a fact that those who take advantage of monitored nutrition coaching lose THREE times the weight of those who go it alone.

Nutrition planning is included in every personal training plan.

Functional Fitness

Your workout will be customized to you, but much of it will revolve around the concept of “Functional Fitness”. Exercises that help you feel better in real life, with an emphasis on core training to build a solid base.

Functional Fitness also involves unstable weight loads. It is a fun way to work out that activates more muscle fibers using only half of the weight. Get a better than gym quality workout without that “Gym Feel”.

Your workout will also keep you in the “Burn Zone”, so that you get a heart workout and continue to burn extra calories hours after the workout ends. No high intensity cardio is needed or recommended. If you want to lose weight, endless cardio is the last thing that you want to do. Ask me why!

In Home Training

Personal training sessions are held in your home or office. This allows you to skip the “gym scene” and all of the health risks that come with it. It also increases your odds of sticking with the program, since the program comes to you.

I bring all equipment necessary for a workout and it is cleaned and sanitized between uses.

The program itself will be customized to you and I keep it interesting by constantly rotating the exercises. This makes the program more fun and effective since muscle groups will be constantly hit from different angles.


Certified Personal Trainer
Certified Nutrition Coach

My name is James Carlson and I am a Certified Personal Trainer living in Orlando. I am 45 years old and am happily married with three kids.

The above information immediately sets me apart from the average 20 year old personal trainer. When you are 20, it is not very hard to stay fit. Once you get a bit older, you need to be smarter to see results.

I can show you how to get fit and stay that way without the “No Pain, No Gain” attitude. Take advantage of my nutrition coaching and/or personal training and you will get fit. It’s just science.





You get more with me than any other trainer in Orlando. When you break my price down per session, I am roughly a third of the price of a commercial gym trainer. And, that is before the cost of the gym membership itself.


Everyone is different, which is why your program will be customized to your needs. The first step will be identifying any weaknesses or imbalances and then correcting them. We can then move forward with a stable basis for growth.


Functional fitness workouts are more fun and much more useful. Get tone, lose weight and make your body move better with less pain and discomfort. My workout program utilizes concepts that many trainers are not familiar with like unstable loads, balance training and agility. You will look better, feel better and have some fun.


Let's face it, gyms are risky. Even before Covid, if you wanted to get sick, a trip to the gym is all it would take. Working out in your home, or office is far healthier and more pleasant. Plus, when the workout comes to you, it is much harder to skip a day.


If you want to reach your goals, you are going to need more than just a few workouts. Unfortunately, that is where most personal trainers stop. Your program will include customized workouts, nutritional assistance, goal setting, progress tracking and accountability. I will do everything in my power to help you stick with the program.


Sometimes the willpower of one is not enough, and that is where I come in. Change is hard, but I will help you reach the finish line. Miss a workout or fail to chart your calories and I will be there to remind you, politely of course.
