Tim Sims was born and raised in Belle Glade, Florida, where he spent his early years playing basketball, football, and baseball. It was clear that he had a passion for academics and sports. He excelled as an athlete, particularly in football and basketball, and would eventually finish high school at the top of his class.
The summer before entering middle school, he was devastated by the passing of his beloved mother. Instead of allowing the event to negatively impact him, it catalyzed transformation and motivated him to make his mother proud. He later uses this strength and determination to overcome injuries sustained after being struck by a car in middle school. He persevered through several surgeries and an inability to walk for six months. His ability to surpass the doctors' expectations of a 50/50 chance of playing football again is a testament to his commitment on and off the field. He continued to play football for Glades Central High School where he was a standout scholar who graduated with honors.
As the valedictorian of his graduating class and an elite high school athlete, his success allowed him to earn a scholarship to the prestigious Stanford University. His academic and athletic success would continue throughout college and he later earned Captain Honors as a senior. He graduated from Stanford University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science.
After working in corporate America, he decided to follow his passion of becoming an entrepreneur. This is where his journey of Simsfit began. Tim is a living example of a transformative and healthy living. He wants to pass on the lessons he learned through overcoming tragedies and career-threatening injuries. Helping others transform their lives and become healthier has allowed his years in fitness to become the most rewarding and satisfying years of his adult life. He looks forward to continuing to make his mother proud by changing lives for the better and leaving a legacy of spreading health and wellness. Start your Simsfit journey today!
