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
Before linking up with Stan McQuay and being a part of Physique Inc. I thought that I had reached my peak as far as physical appearance. Within months of getting on the right diet plan and workouts specifically customed for me under the guidance and professional leadership from Stan I got into the best shape ever & felt great mentally as well. One of the best investments I have ever made hands down. ~ Sevan Hovsepian
I’ve had bad experiences in the past with other “coaches” who were impossible to get ahold of, flake on appointments, take forever to get back to you on updates especially for peak week. I was almost to the point where I just didn’t want to compete anymore. Then I ran into stan Mcquay’s instagram. I always knew who he was from fitness magazines I used to buy growing up. I followed him and what stood out most to me was he’s a veteran still in the game who is still killing it. Also that he is very successful in bodybuilding and life in general. Immediately I said I want to learn everything he knows. I contacted him. He responded immediately and we got right down to business. He pointed out my weak points, we strengthened those. Adjusted my diet accordingly and made sure my meals and workouts could accommodate my life outside of the gym. With him as my coach I was able to find the perfect balance to being present with my family, function 100% at work and still kick ass at the gym to bring home two first places trophies so far. We’re only getting started and look forward continue working with team Physique Inc. and head coach Stan McQuay in the future. ~ Tony Mendez
I have had the privilege of working with Stan even before Physique Inc. Not only was he my coach, but my trainer as well. Working one on one with him made a world of difference. He was trained by the best, so I learned from the best. He helped me with not just competing, but also with my professional wrestling career! ~ Scott Clifton
I never thought that I could actually take my body to the level that Physique Inc. allowed me to accomplish. Being a mother of two teenagers, feeling low self-esteem and self-conscious about my body was an emotion I had dealt with for far too long. I am incredibly grateful for all the years of experience that come together in this remarkable team, Physique Inc. Whether I’m in my off-season and looking to build muscle, looking for a meal plan to help maintain between shows, practicing my posing, or prepping to hit the stage, I couldn’t ask to be apart of a more elite team than Physique Inc. I sincerely thank you all from the bottom of my heart for your professionalism, genuineness, and passion for seeing your athletes succeed. I’m so grateful for each and everyone of you and I’m grateful to be apart of the Physique Inc. family.
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
For the longest time I debated on hiring a trainer for my next competition. I didnt realize at that time that he would be much more than my trainer but my driving force that aided me in achieving so much more in my life. I recently participated in the 2017 NPC Excalibur in Culver City. Not only did I place 1st in my class I was inspired keep moving forward with my goals and inspire others like he has inspired me. Thank you Stan. Couldn't do it without you man.
“I’ve been working with IFBB Pro Stan McQuay for just over 2 years now and I can’t be happier with the results that I’ve gotten from working with him and the coaches at Physique Inc. His attention to detail, and consistent communication through all 5 of the shows we have done together shows that he is definitely a first class trainer and coach. And the training programs that he sends after every update ensures that I am targeting my weak points so that I can bring a great physique on, and off the stage. I can’t wait to see what we have in store for 2018, but fingers crossed, I will go pro and continue my fitness journey here along with the other pros on Team Physique inc!”
“I linked up with Stan McQuay in the fall of 2013. At this point I had some small successes and wins in powerlifting and I placed well in a few bodybuilding shows but had yet to win one. Since linking up with Stan I have had 4 class wins, 1 overall win, and brought my best physique to the USA stage... Stan has been that guy in that he respects my desire to be very hands on with my prep and that I will probably annoy him with wanting to know "why" we do certain things...instead of just asking what to do. I couldn't be happier being part of Physique Inc and I look forward to continue learning from Stan and all the other people on the coaching staff!”
