Before making the transition into acting and modeling, however, Thompson was a top ranked American tennis player. Born in Baltimore, Maryland, Thompson was once the number 1 ranked junior player in the United States and attended the Rick Macci Tennis Academy in Delray Beach, Florida, along with fellow junior stars Andy Roddick, Venus Williams & Serena Williams. Thompson has been part of various United States National Teams and made his first appearance for Team USA against Panama in El Salvador. He was also a participant in the Junior Davis Cup World Championships.
Thompson entered his first pro tournament at age 17, and achieved a world ranking while in high school. As one of the top 5 rated high school recruits in the United States, he went on to accept a full athletic scholarship at the University of Miami. During his sophomore season, however, he fell severely ill and was eventually diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease. Following a near two year layoff from tennis, and as doctors said “a miracle recovery”, Thompson went on to finish his collegiate career at Clemson University.
Jamin’s story of overcoming Crohn’s Disease has helped him become an inspiration for people across the world – and he now teaches and writes to help people gain the confidence to push past their genetic and mental “limits” to finally change their lives and go after their dreams. His goal is to inspire people to realize that regardless of where you are in life, whatever you’re going through, you can overcome seemingly impossible odds and get what you want out of life. Now, with readers in over 100 countries, his blog has become a global movement about fitness, empowerment, and taking control of your life and health.
Thompson has also written a book, called The 6 Pack Secret, which has been sold in over 50 countries and has helped thousands of folks from all walks of life get cut and jacked the healthy way. Through his writing, videos, and fitness endeavors, he has been able to educate and motivate thousands of people from all walks of life on the importance of fitness, nutrition, and living a healthy lifestyle.
