James Marshall is the COO and Head Coach of Look Like You Lift. He has been a strength coach for over 5 years and has specialized in helping men get stronger through simple barbell training.

He majored in Psychology at Kalamazoo College and held multiple internships at D1 strength & conditioning facilities and high level sports performance companies.

His aim has always been to simplify strength and nutrition through barbell training and the importance of eating REAL food (and donuts).

Bethany is one of the LLYL Coaches, and specializes in women looking to get stronger.
She started out in the gym doing crazy amounts of cardio and random workouts and feeling like her workouts were punishment for eating “bad” food. This only left her feeling defeated and seeing no results. 

Then after working with a coach, she decided to give focused strength training a try and that’s when a light went off. She started feeling strong and seeing food as fuel for her next lifts. She began noticing how her body was feeling (and looking) better than it ever had. She became truly passionate about strength training and it didn’t take long to decide that she wanted to become a trainer and share this passion with others. She have been training clients in-person and online since 2020 and her clients have genuinely loved every minute of it.

She first discovered LLYL on social media and immediately knew she wanted part of this program. Her favorite part about the LLYL approach is that it takes you back to the basics. Fitness doesn’t have to be complicated. That doesn’t mean it’s easy, but it can be simplified for greater success and adherence in order to achieve your goals.

Connor Julian is one of the coaches here with LLYL, as well as a gym owner in Nashville.  He has been a coach now for about 7 years, training all types of people, from competitive weightlifters to people simply trying to lose weight.

  He has competed in various things - from bodybuilding shows to athletic competitions.  His passion is working with all individuals looking to accomplish their goals; as well as helping people understand that engaging in a healthier lifestyle can ultimately change your life. 

He strongly believes that everyone is capable of change, but ultimately it's up to the individual to make the decision. One of his all time favorite quotes is, "Willing is not enough, we must do” - Bruce Lee.
