James is driven to help people discover their life potential and he starts by getting people to stop making excuses and gets them to take massive and immediate action. “I am committed to getting people to break away from their “ordinary lives” – The majority of the ordinary, spend way too much of their precious time sitting on couches, typing on keyboards and wasting away on game consoles…It’s high time that people recognize the fact that we can gain control over many of life’s challenges and this control always leads to many more positive outcomes. When people see, first hand, just how powerful a healthy lifestyle is for changing just about every single aspect of a persons life, they always wish that they had started earlier, because they finally realize that they have the ability to sculpt their ideal life!” say’s James Villepigue.
