James Hiers

I was born in Miami, Florida and moved west in 1986, serving in the U. S. Marine Corps. I fell in love with the desert and never considered moving back east of the Rockies. Love found me again, and I moved to Tucson in 2010. I attended St. Leo University and earned degrees in Liberal Arts and Computer Information Systems, with postgraduate coursework in organic chemistry, nutrition, microbiology, and anatomy and physiology.

I became CF-certified in 2008. Following a nutrition certification in 2009 I lost 30 pounds following the Zone diet – but real change came when I adopted the Paleo lifestyle, and my years of chronic IBD (Crohn's) disappeared almost overnight (no gluten for me!). CrossFit also brought out a passion for coaching kettlebells, and weightlifting (the Olympic lifts). I was fortunate in 2017 to coach a fellow coach to compete at a Nationals-level weightlifting competition back in my hometown of Miami.

I do not consider myself an athlete. I actually consider myself somewhat clumsy to have broken as many bones as I have… I consider myself a regular guy that likes to push the envelope, and my own personal limits – however small those limits may seem at the time, they do add up. We all come from different backgrounds, different levels of athleticism, with different goals. CrossFit Tuath brings us all together under a common roof, with the safety net of unconditional support – a gym and coaches that take pride on placing form, execution, and its members above personal records or the stopwatch. I feel honored to have the opportunity to coach you.

CrossFit Tuath Liability Waiver (4840)
Waiver and Release of Liability 
Express assumption of risk
I, the undersigned, am aware that there are significant risks involved in any physical training regimen.  These risks include, but are not limited to: falls which can result in serious injury or death, injury or death due to negligence on the part of myself, my training partner, or other people around me, injury or death due to improper use or failure of equipment.  Injury may also result simply from the fact of physical training itself.  By its very nature, physical training seeks to have me push beyond my physical and mental limits in order to produce a physical adaptation by my body.  This requires feedback from me to my trainer regarding what is happening with my body.  Excessive work can result (in rare cases) in exertional rhabdomyolosis.  I should look for signs of excessive soreness, darkened urine, and pain in the kidney areas in the days following a particularly intense workout.  While this type of injury is rare, it can occur due to a number of factors, including (but not limited to) genetic predisposition, medication, or other factors that are beyond the control of my trainer.   I am aware that any of these above-mentioned risks may result in serious injury or death to myself and or my partner(s).  I willingly assume full responsibility for the risks that I am exposing myself to and accept full responsibility for any injury or death that may result from participation in any activity or class while training with CrossFit Tuath and/or Murphy's Barbell Club (CFT, MBC).

This agreement shall be binding upon me, my successors, representatives, heirs, executors, assigns, or transferees.  If any portion of this agreement is held invalid, I agree that the remainder of the agreement shall remain in full legal force and effect.  If I am signing on behalf of a minor child, I also give full permission for any person connected with CrossFit Tuath and Murphy's Barbell Club  to administer first aid deemed necessary, and in case of serious illness or injury, I give permission to call for medical and or surgical care for the child and to transport the child to a medical facility deemed necessary for the well-being of the child. 
The participant recognizes that there is risk involved in the types of activities offered by CrossFit Tuath and Murphy's Barbell Club.

Should the above-mentioned parties, or anyone acting on their behalf, be required to incur attorney’s fees and costs to enforce this agreement, I agree to reimburse them for such fees and costs. I further agree to indemnify and hold harmless CrossFit, Inc. and CrossFit Tuath and Murphy's Barbell Club, their principals, agents, employees, and volunteers from liability for the injury or death of any person(s) and damage to property that may result from my negligent or intentional act or omission while participating in activities offered by CrossFit Tuath and Murphy's Barbell Club.
