Jim Busalacchi


Powerlifting Expert



CrossFit Level 1 Certified Trainer



An avid athlete growing up, competed in baseball, basketball and football.

As an adult, continued many years of basketball and softball.


I have been lifting weights for over 30 years and started competing in powerlifting in 2002 and trained primarily the “Westside” method for the next 8 years or so.  During those years I started strength training groups of athletes ranging in ages from middle school to college age kids purely on a volunteer basis.  I found I really loved coaching and helping these kids.  

CrossFit is great because it attracts everyone.  I love seeing people with little to no experience come in and be able to help them achieve their goals.  Its an honor for me to be able to share my knowledge of weight lifting with our members.  My objective will always be to make sure everyone feels welcome in any class that I am coaching and to assure your safety all while having fun.


Personally, I am a Dad to two beautiful daughters.  I work full time for Leinenkugel Brewery and when I’m not at the gym, my biggest passion is fishing.  Most importantly, I love hanging out and spending time with my family and friends.
