by Yard Athletics – Nov 11th, 2020

It’s our pleasure to finally introduce Jamiel Moore-Williams to the Yard Athletics 20 Questions series! Long overdue but just in time, we wanted to fire our famous 20 Questions at “Jam”, who you might have had the pleasure of training with Wednesday afternoons in the gym.

As always, we want to peel back the layers and really get to know our community, so read below to find out Jam’s favorite restaurant, why the best patio isn’t a patio at all, and what the worst gym pet peeve is.

Word of mouth! Spencer, an old teammate of mine, said “Jam you have to come by and check out this class! I think you’ll really enjoy it”. I was then introduced to Ilan and things clicked right off the bat. He’s an awesome down to earth guy, really is passionate about training. I rock with that!  These adverse times were truly a blessing in disguise, it has allowed for our schedule to align and I’m extremely happy because of it!

  1. Favorite restaurant, favorite dish?

Jamaican Patty Shack, 3 Curry beef patties and a Curry chicken Roti to go please 🥰.

  1. Squats, Deadlifts or Bench Press?

It all depends….. Mini trap bar available? Hammer strength/rouge multi function bench press bar available? We doing front squats? Hey man what’s good!? You got to be more specific!

  1. Company you wish would sponsor you?

Honestly would love a deal with Beats by Dre, make my own clothing under them? (Headphone friendly attire….)

“Cause I’m not playing campaign today”. Could be a sick autobiography title or Album Cover …

Most people hate to Deadlift because the fear it will lead them to the chiropractor. I deadlift to stay away from the chiropractor, let’s rock.
