Creating entertaining content while promoting a healthy lifestyle, James Binney is making waves
What is life without good health? As the famous saying goes, “If you lose your wealth, you lose nothing. If you lose your health, you lose everything.” The majority of us take our health for granted. We eat fast food or unhealthy, greasy foods almost all the time, along with smoking and drinking. These unhealthy habits of ours can result in severe consequences. Therefore, it is necessary to find balance in life. Jeffrey James Binney understands the benefits of a healthy lifestyle and promotes it through his creative content. A fighter against obesity, James Binney aspires to promote well-being on every forum.
Jeffrey James Binney is an athlete, actor, comedian, motivational speaker, and singer based in Salt Lake City. Binney was raised on a farm in Laredo, Missouri, and shortly after earning his B.F.A. in Musical Theatre Performance from Missouri State University, he relocated to Brooklyn, New York. He has performed in the Broadway Musical’s First National Tour and Chicago Company and on the Late Night with David Letterman show. He has made memorable appearances at several comedy clubs and festivals across the nation, in addition to the 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee. Even with a successful career at such a young age, Binney understands how important it is for him to set an example for his fans and followers.
It is no secret that we all come across a turning point in our lives where everything stops, making it clear what should be our priority and our true goal. For Binney, the wake-up call was a little harsh and painful. When Binney’s mother became ill, his life underwent a significant change. He returned to Missouri, his hometown, to take care of his mother. He supported her through her tough times for an entire year and a half, but unfortunately, his mother passed away from heart disease that was brought on by her obesity.
Binney realized that because he was overweight, he was also heading toward serious health issues. He was spurred by a magazine he saw in the hospital waiting room. He weighed 340 pounds and wasn’t particularly athletic back then, but something clicked. Binney received a wake-up call that radically altered his outlook on life. He decided to change his life for the better and wanted to prove that it’s never too late. Binney understood his mission was to spread awareness about a healthy lifestyle through his books, comedy, music, movie, public speaking, and actions.
To spread awareness, Binney also ran the Leadville 100-mile ultramarathon. The Leadville Trail 100 Run, also known as Race Across the Sky, is an annual ultramarathon that travels through the heart of the Rocky Mountains close to Leadville, Colorado. It appears that running an ultramarathon was not an easy task. Even for professional runners, many things can go wrong during a 100-mile run. No matter how in shape you are, you are still susceptible to injuries or altitude sickness. But Jeffrey is resolute. He believes that you can conquer any mountain and swim across any ocean with devotion, tenacity, and a ‘can do’ attitude. Binney gave his all on the track but was stopped at the 50-mile mark as he missed his spot. Although it was challenging for him, he decided to enter one of the most difficult ultramarathons and step outside his comfort zone. Binney didn’t look back after that. In fact, he attempted a second marathon in Texas six months later. This time, Jeffrey Binney finished the marathon and served as a motivational role model for those who give up after just one setback.
Jeffrey Binney is indeed an inspiration for those who have lost hope and feel they can’t do anything. The tale of his redemption tells us a valuable lesson: with hard work and perseverance, anyone can succeed, regardless of appearance, identity, or upbringing. Because Jeffrey decided to transform himself by taking control of his destiny, he is now admired by many.
There is more to Binney than meets the eye. He is most known for the movie “Once Is Enough,” which is accessible on the OTT streaming platform Amazon Prime Video. He is also famous online for a few social media videos he posted of himself dancing while trail running. Born and bred in Missouri on a pig farm, comedian Binney subsequently moved to the East to seek a career in musical theatre. His slogan is “Hilarious. Captivating. Blindingly Pale.” Creating entertaining content is what Binney lives for, but he understands how important it is to educate his audience about a better and healthy lifestyle. Between his jokes and intense writing, Binney has always successfully conveyed the message of peace, health, and happiness.
