Personal Trainers & Coaches

James Allen Stanton aka Evil Jimmi

A2O_JimmiPortrait_PROOF.jpg

James "Evil Jimmi" Stanton is a savage with a 20+ year history of throwing around heavy things made out of metal.  He received his first taste of elite strength & conditioning via his high school weight training coach and mentor--needing only two lifts to enter the 1,000-pound club by graduation: the Squat and the Deadlift.

Nine years into a "5-year plan" working in the tech industry he decided to seek new adventures and walked away from the cube farm - straight up "Office Space" style - never looking back.  And what he would find would reignite his fiery inner passion for slinging around heavy objects forged from iron and steel...enter the Kettlebell.

Jimmi has spent more than seven intensive months training 5 to 6 days a week with World Kettlebell Club Strength & Conditioning Coach, CrossFit Kettlebell Trainer, and friend to A2O Fitness Jim Beaumont.  And now our hero--with a body full of broken bones, herniated disks, and reconstructed joints all mended, bolstered and made bulletproof through Kettlebell training is more savage than ever before!

He's now with us at A2O Fitness to bring an elite level of fitness that can only be developed through high-level Kettlebell training.  For those of you with enough moxie to accept the challenge, the gauntlet has been thrown down!

After a short lived career of playing Arena Football in Kansas City, Missouri, Charles returned to the Treasure Valley in the summer of 2012, were he would tackle his next career as a Personal Trainer and Boot Camp Instructor.  His goal was to create a fun, inviting atmosphere within the gym that fit anyone and everyone. Most of his workouts involve circuits and interval training that are created to not just sculpt your body but also your mind. Challenging your mind and pushing your body to the limit became the motto Charles would live by. He understands everyone is going to have bad days, but the gym is no place for a bad day. The gym is used as a place you can come and focus on working on yourself, leaving all other problems at the door.  Charles specializes in group trainings, the ability to work hard as a team for a common goal reminds him much of his glory days on the Blue. The energy he brings to every workout is contagious, and the workouts are always creative and simple enough for beginners yet still challenging enough for veterans.

Heather Eastman

I earned my National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) certification in personal training while finishing my bachelors degree at UCLA.  My passion for public health led me to pursue a full-time career as a personal trainer.  As my knowledge base grew, I acquired further certifications as an ACE Group Exercise Leader, a Certified Spinning Instructor, a Level 1 CrossFit Instructor, a NASM CPT, and a certified Stroops trainer.  

I began my training career at the John Wooden Athletic Center on the UCLA campus where I had the opportunity to meet some of the top health and fitness professionals in Southern California. I moved to Idaho in the fall of 2006, and since then have called the Treasure Valley home.  In my career as a trainer and health coach I've had the opportunity to work with prominent members of the local health and fitness community, including Axiom, Bodybuilding.com, Idaho Athletic Club, and Gold's Gym. I've worked with local high schools as a track and field coach, and I've developed fitness and coaching programs and content for companies based in Utah, Nevada, and California. 

I've trained clients and athletes for everything from ultra marathons to bodybuilding, and developed a niche for helping each client find that perfect balance between work, rest, fitness and play. I have a lot of energy and a passion which I use to take care of and motivate those around me.  My mission is to take the work out of getting fit and healthy so my clients, friends and family can truly enjoy the process of living a full and active life.

Bennett Tapia

I’ve been part of the A20 Fitness “framily” for nearly 3 years now.  I was looking for a new fitness direction, but it turned out to be so much more than I anticipated. I first learned about A20 from my Father, and had witnessed the great coaching and results he received with my mentor, “Evil Jimmi” (Stanton), and thought I would benefit from the classes as well.  On my first day, I knew I was hooked.  I was carefully and professionally guided in a whole “new” area of functional strength, mobility and fitness that I had never experienced before. The incredible groundwork of knowledge and motivation that I found at A20, has led me to take a personal interest in the furthering the important coaching work we do at A20 fitness. 

 A20 has become an integral part of my life, on the daily.
