Ronny Camacho has been a huge part of my growing gymnastics career for the past nine years of my life and was there every step of the way. Every single moment, inside and out of the gym, Ronny has been there training, encouraging, pushing and inspiring me to be the best gymnast and person I can be.During what would have been my first year competing at Level 9, something 'uneventful' occurred. I experienced a very rare injury called 'grip lock' which occurs when a gymnast's grips lock to the horizontal bar while the gymnast is still rotating. This causes severe damage to the forearms. At around 6:40 pm on December 14th, 2016, it happened to me and I fractured both ulnas and bent my radius. I arrived at the ER around 7:10 pm and within 10 minutes Ronny was there for me having driven across two cities to support me.After meeting with the doctors, they said it would be unlikely for me to be back on the gymnastics equipment in the next year. However, I think Ronny begged to differ. With two casts up to my elbows, I spent three days a week training my lower body and back. As soon as the casts came off and I got the 'ok' to use my wrists again, we were working that too. Only five months after the injury, I found myself in the gym doing giants - completely proving the doctors wrong!Now, here I am in 2018 ready to compete stronger than before as a Level 10 gymnast and I owe it all to Ronny. I want to thank him for being an amazing teacher and coach, and consider him as a member of my family. Thank you for doing everything possible to help me through my life and gymnastics!" - Armando Nicolas Visitacion
Before I worked with Christian as a prep client he was my posing coach. Even through posing sessions I knew this man was the real deal. Seeing how he was so diligent with his actual prep clients, I wanted to be a part of that. So in the beginning of 2016 I bulked for two months. I was so uncomfortable seeing my body grow but with Christian's guidance he assured me I had to be patient and to keep my eyes on the prize. Christian was there every step of the way. I don't only see him as a coach but a great mentor! Being on Prep is not just about your physical appearance it affects all parts of your life. That's what he would say, I didn't understand it at first and wasn't until I had to choose sleep over hanging out with friends, grocery shopping over family parties and the list goes on. I started to see physically, mentally,vemotionally and socially you are being challenged every single day and no one really gets it unless they are a part of this lifestyle. With Christian's personalized meal plans, cardio, training regiment, and recommendations for supplements I reached my personal goals. First goal was to place better then my last show. I took home second place and I am now a nationally qualified figure athlete. Second was to see my abs. I didn't do the cheeseburger and flashing a picture, but I saw an "8 pack". Lastly, to love myself all year round... on prep and off prep. Thank you Christian! I would have never gotten here if it wasn't for you. I'm in a good place in my life physically, mentally and emotionally. I don't think there is any coach/mentor that could top you. You are the real MVP. I know you really have a passion for this work it really shows. You see the art and its form when it comes to bodybuilding and I can respect that. Here's to our 2018 prep!! ~ Ashley Marquez
I had the privilege of working with coach Christian for my first two shows. When we initially met, I was nervous because posing was definitely something I had no experience doing. I had always been a gym rat and ate pretty consistently but Christians knowledge, patience, and expertise took me from an everyday gym Junkie, to a first place finish, an overall win, and a 2nd place finish in just my second show. Now I'm getting ready to obtain my Pro-Card in an industry I never new existed or thought I even belonged in! I can't wait to see where this year takes me and I couldn't ask for a better person to have in my corner than coach Christian! ~ Anthony Chinakwe
Working with Dave and his expert nutritional advice, I have seen a compete turn around in my body composition. I am adding lean tissue, losing fat, and seeing amazing strength gains in the gym. I cannot wait to see what 2019 holds for where I can take my physique!- Jamie Lawrence
I began working with Dave Kalick 5 years ago and the process couldn’t have been better. Ironically, I met Dave when I was 18 and told him that one day, I would use him to turn pro. My very first appearance at the USAs was a disaster and I placed 13th. I took a year off and I happened to run into Dave again and we decided to start prepping for the USAs that day. Fast forward a bit, I took 5th, then 3rd, and then finally won my class turning pro. We also did my first pro show last year taking a respectable 5th place in my first pro show. Since working with Dave, my body has grown correctly, safely and I have seen nothing but success in the shows I have done. By far the best decision I made in my bodybuilding career.

I’ve been flying with Dave since May, 2017 after Shawn Rhoden introduced us. I can’t thank either of them enough for the guidance and motivation over the past year. Amateur or pro, Dave is your guy. Having Dave in your corner along with Physique Inc. definitely lifts a weight off your shoulders with the knowledge they have. Trust the process, and let Dave guide you to the top. ~ Justin Marvin
Hiring Physique Inc was the best decision I made when I decided to compete in my first bikini competition. I had been working out and lifting weights since my 20’s but at 41 years old, I found myself ready for a new challenge. A few of my friends who were new to fitness were competing in muscle contests and doing well and they encouraged me to also compete. At first I was intimidated but I realized that the only way for me to grow is to take myself out of my comfort zone and push myself to the next level. My friends recommended that I hire a coach to help me present my best package on stage and even though they recommended I join a “team,” I knew right away that I wanted to hire Stan McQuay and Physique Inc because I knew that Stan was established and respected in the bodybuilding industry. I also liked that Physique Inc provided one on one attention and focus. James Juge was my coach and provided me with diet instruction, workout schedules and motivation. He always made me feel like I was his one and only clclient. I followed his instruction and guidance for twelve weeks and on the day of my competition, I stepped on stage and took first place in my category! Coach James was patient but also knew how to challenge me just enough to show me that I could give even more than I ever believed. He believed in me. Mind over matter is what he would say and he was right. At the end of it all, I learned that I could accomplish anything I put my mind to … I won first place at my very first bikini competition but most importantly, I walked away healthier, happier and more confident than ever before. ~ Sasha Perez
Although I did not think I had a chance of winning, my cousin James offered to help me, and talked me into entering the Max Muscle transformation contest. I lived in Louisiana and he in California. I sent him beginning photos of myself and progress photos every few weeks, by which he wrote my nutrition/workout plan, and made adjustments throughout the process. I could not believe how my body was changing before my eyes in such a short period of time. I had worked out in the past, but never truly understood the importance of combining proper nutrition with the right exercises, cardio and supplements. In 12 weeks James took me from 251 lb and 20% body fat to 217 lb and 5% body fat, resulting in me winning the advanced division of a national contest that I would have never entered without his encouragement or won without his knowledge and expertise in nutrition and training.Jared Juge
I've known Jim for 25 years. From day 1 he was the guy most people at Gold's Gym went to for advice on diet and bodybuilding. Not only was he current with his knowledge and did a great job explaining every thing but he practiced what he preached. He always had one of the most impressive physiques around, either winning or placing top 3 in big time shows. Recently, I decided to compete in Mens Physique after a long layoff from bodybuilding. I know about a dozen coaches but hands down when I made my decision, Jim was the guy I was going to go to. In a matter of months he got me looking like I did in my 20's. By contest time I was ready to go and won my division. Because of Jim I qualified for Nationals and he is presently getting me ready for that. Without a doubt he is one of the best coaches in the country and as long as you are willing to work, I guarantee he will get you to your goal. ~ Tim Murphy
James was not only an incredible motivator and thorough planner when it came to getting me through my first competition, but his vast knowledge and experience in the fitness industry helped me tremendously. He pushed me past what I thought were my limits and gave me the confidence I needed to win my show, which was Ms. Los Angeles and then on to Ms. USA 2nd runner-up. ~ Tiffany Berumen
Jim Juge is the only reason why I was so successful in the Sport of Bodybuilding. Jim took me under his wing and taught me the proper form in working out each body part, nutrition, dieting and preparation for competitions. Jim’s vast knowledge in this sport is unmeasurable and I have been blessed to be a product of this. Raising a family and working full time, I was able to win numerous competitions including Mr California and The USA Championships where I earned my IFBB Pro Card. ~ Tevita Aholelei
About two years ago I decided I wanted to take my fitness to a higher level. I had been working out for years but I wasn't seeing the results I wanted which was very frustrating. I decided I was going to higher a coach and train for a bikini competition. That when James Juge came into my life and I started seeing results fast! He put me on a structured meal and training plan and thats made all the difference in my results. It was amazing seeing the changes in my body daily! I cannot say enough good things about the positive impact James has brought into my life. Sochi Reataza
Five Stars for James Juge who changed my life! I was a 40 year old mom of 3 with a full time job when a friend told me to call James. I didn’t believe him when he said I would do my first show in 6 months. With his constant support and detailed plan I did have my first show in 6 months and I placed in both my classes. Enjoy Working with James and his level of dedication was amazing. It wasn’t easy but I wasn’t doing it alone! Thanks James! Ryan Rae
My name is Ronald Sargeant. I have been weightlifting/training for 32 years. Through all of the years, I met many so called “trainers” who claimed expertise on dieting with promises on getting hopefuls into the professional arena; only to find out that all those where just empty promises at a high monetary cost. I met James several years ago and not only I consider him a guru at the science of dieting, he is a dedicated individual who genuinely cares on your progress and success. James began working/prepping me for competition for the last 7 years. Under his guidance I received several placings under my belt (winning overall at my 1st show in Orange County and 4 runner ups at the nationals) Thank you James for your continue dedication and support.
I have been weight training for 15 years and bodybuilding for four years. I have competed in over a half dozen National Qualifiers. With that said, I must say that James Juge has a well-earned reputation for helping athletes reach their full potential. I have been fortunate enough to work with Coach Juge for approximately one year, and two contest preps. With only 8 weeks to prepare for a National Qualifier, coach Juge helped me get bigger, harder, and grainier than I had I ever been. The end result was a first place finish in my weight class, and a second overall finish. Following that show, Coach Juge continued to fine tune my diet and posing routines as I prepared for my first National Show. Coach Juge was with me every step of the way, helping me make adjustments that included everything from diet, water manipulation, and stage presentation. More importantly, coach Juge’s positive energy throughout the process had a huge impact on my confidence level in the few precious moments on stage. The result was a fifth place finish in my class. Considering the gravity of the show, and the overall time coach Juge and I had worked together at that point, I conclude that my showing was a resounding success, and has bolstered my confidence in my current season. Under his guidance I have made improvements in every area, and have been tabbed as “One to watch!” in many reputable bodybuilding circles. Yours Truly, Ronald P. Gordon
Coach James embodies change and commitment. Through consistent and positive feedback and encouragement, he retrained my brain while I retrained my body to push beyond its limits. I have trained with James over four years and would not have stopped until I relocated. He is the reason why I will always be passionate in exercise and health. James is not only a master personal trainer but a life changer.~ Merisa Sandler
Being physically active in sports my whole life, I absolutely loved fitness since I was a little girl. It was my dream to be on the bodybuilding stage, and coach James made that dream come true. Coach James is competitive, driven, passionate, and everything you look for and need in a coach and mentor. Throughout the entire process of my very first bodybuilding competition, he motivated me, pushed me, and believed in me. I competed in an NPC Figure competition as a Novice, placed 1st place in Novice, 1st place in Open, and ended up taking Overall Figure! With the help of his 12-week meal plan (which had been personalized to my body accordingly) a personal training program, and a vitamin/supplement regimen, coach James helped me achieve the results I desired. He is extremely knowledgeable in the science of nutrition, which is key in dieting, and is experienced in the bodybuilding world. Aside from dieting, he also coached me through my posing, which is one of the most important aspects of the stage, as well as walked me through the protocols of reverse dieting after my competition. With confidence, support, and encouragement, I am now a Nationally Qualified Figure Competitor, and I look forward to working with Coach James toward my next goal; obtaining my Pro card!”-Kahyana Spence
2002 Mr. USA - Superheavyweight and Overall Champion. Earned his IFBB Pro card!!
My man Jim was the second trainer I trusted to assist me in my contest prep because there are too many “guru’s” that really aren’t. He coached me in second and third overall titles the Contra Costa and California Championships and my 4th place finish at the USA Championships in 2001. His training advise and diet consultation was spot on and was the catalyst to me winning the 2002 Mr. USA Championships the very next year earning my IFBB Pro card!~ Idrise Ward-El
I had amazing results working with James throughout my fitness career. He even helped me earn my IFBB Bikini Pro Card at 36 years old!! James is a very knowledgeable nutritionist who is extremely involved with the entire process of getting you in shape. I met with him weekly to do progress pictures and diet updates, and he always knew exactly how to tweak my diet to keep me from plateauing. I would highly recommend James if you’re interested in serious results!! ~ Cathy Miller, IFBB Bikini Pro
Stan McQuay made my IFBB pro card goals a reality. The knowledge and experience he applies towards my nutrition keeps me feeling good during my competition preps. I remain nourished, therefore efficient with my workouts and this is important to show a well developed athletic physique. Stan is honest and detailed with his coaching. His keen aesthetic eye keeps me focused on what’s important to present my best physique possible for the stage. No nonsense, high quality competition prep coaching. ~ Nani Montgomery
