Jim comes from a rugby background where a series of of injuries forced him to call it a day. In its place, he took up Crossfit and has went from strength to strength.

Despite only training Crossfit for three years, he has already competed on a team at a sanctioned event - Strength in Depth. The 2019 Open saw him take a fifth place finish in Ireland. His breakout year didn't stop there as he then went on to represent Ireland at the 2019 Fitness World Championships in Malmo, Sweden! Affectionately referred to as the 'Honey Badger' at his local box, Crossfit Castrum, for his tendency to attack workouts head on without fear; he's the perfect fit for the Viking Fitness Project.
