MEET OUR TRAINERS
Hi! I’m Clemence Ahiable, founder of Crème de la Clem Fitness.
I was born and raised in Ghana. I migrated with my family to the United States in 1999. As a young child, I have always enjoyed sports but my family put education above sports. I was not strong academically but I did my best to make sure I had good enough grades to stay on the sports teams. I enjoyed track because I had a natural speed which helped in other sports such as basketball and soccer. I quickly learned that I was blessed with great athleticism but I lacked coordination. This was something I had to work on to get to where I am today.
Hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard. Unfortunately, I had to learn the hard way. After high school I picked up some bad habits that got me out of shape. I was no longer as disciplined as I once was and that had to change.
The game changer for me was when I ruptured my achilles in 2015. This taught me not to take anything for granted when it comes to taking care of your body. After completing physical therapy I still felt like there was more work to be done but I didn’t know where to begin. Fortunately for me I got invited to a Personal Trainer Certification program by a good friend and through this, I was able to learn about the proper mechanics and movements of the body, along with nutrition and ect. At this moment I found my true passion and purpose in life. My Goal was to become the best version of myself as I teach others to do the same. We all have to start from somewhere so no matter where you are there’s always room for improvement day in and day out.
Hi, my name is James D. Bradshaw III. I am a father of one and the son of two military veterans. I am the head trainer at Crème De La Clem Fitness.
I got into fitness at a young age. I started boxing when I was 9 and did that for a few years before I got into football in high school and wrestling in high school and college, where I received my Associates in Engineering. After my playing days were over, I became a wrestling coach. I enjoyed working with the youth so I started working at the YMCA as a youth advisor and a certified CPR and First Aid instructor.
I met Clemence when we were 23 years old and formed a great friendship that turned into brotherhood. I became a certified personal trainer in 2020 so it was just natural for me to join Clem with this business endeavor. My passion is to help people change their lifestyle habits so they can live a healthier life. I believe everyone has the capability to reach their fitness and health goals if they are willing to put in the effort.
