About this pro

A practical, realistic, and old school style of training.

I've been an athlete my entire life playing college football, competing in weight lifting meets, and training MMA for over 10 years. Hands on training that I do with you. I will never have you do something that I cannot do myself. 

I work with people of all ages and skill sets. I just want to help people achieve the best version of themselves and build new relationships along the way.

I enjoy seeing people realize their potential. To inspire and motivate people is a passion I've had my entire life. I enjoy seeing people move on to bigger and better things. I like watching them begin to believe in themselves and do the things they've always wanted to do.

    Justin is an amazing trainer! I’ve been working with him for nearly a year and I’ve never felt stronger in my life. He is a great teacher and doesn’t pressure anyone to do anything that is beyond their limits. He truly understands your goals and works together with you to build a plan to achieve them. The workouts he constructs are tailored to each person based on their experience and needs. He is with you every step of the way coaching you, motivating you, and even working out with you to demonstrate the appropriate lifting techniques to ensure you are doing everything correctly and safely. All of this leads to maximum results in a safe manner. He’s pushed me to limits I never thought possible! I’d highly recommend Justin to anyone looking to train and get in better shape. On top of that he is an overall awesome guy! Look no further! You found your next trainer!

    I’ve done strength training and body building training with Justin. And not that I’m a Mr. Olympia, but I’ve been doing both on my own for 25+ years. But wanted to work with Justin to get more precise and growth in both areas, although not to get bigger per say, but stronger, more complete and balanced. Justin is OUTSTANDING. He works all body parts...and each with concentration...both in # of sets and always 8-10 reps per set. Great as gets you the reps but also it’s the perfect automatic guide to when you can increase the weight of that particular excersise. Justin also has incredible attention to detail on form and technique which is critical. I thought I was good at both, but have gotten much better with his not only guidance but watching me as I’m doing the set...and he’ll not critique me, but always to get better. Finally Justin does tailors everything to where I am at...and it’s never about you sets being too light or not being strong...it’s always find the baseline for you on every type of set and each set...again based on being able to do 8-10 reps each set. P.S. Justin does what most overlook and not do...great warm up with weights. I cannot recommend Justin enough to train anyone at any level. Dead serious.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I work with people of many different skill sets. First, we'll establish clear goals and what you actually want to do. I train at least 4 days a week. To build yourself you have to be able to invest "time" in yourself. It's hard to see results if you don't invest an adequate amount of time to train. We will build a foundation and learn what your strengths and weaknesses are. We will make adaptations and grow progressively each week and month. There will be regular and frequent gains.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have nothing but experience. Been an athlete and competed throughout my entire life. Was active in all major contact sports and played football at college level. I also competed in strength meets through high school and college. I have trained MMA, Boxing, and Muay Thai for 10 years. I currently work with clients and train at Title Boxing.


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

Prices are determined situationally and on how much you want to train. The most important thing is reaching your goals, feeling good, and being healthy. It's not about how much money I can make.


How did you get started teaching?

I've been helping others achieve their goals since I was a kid. I student taught throughout high school and college in and out of the classroom. Currently, I teach at Title Boxing and train at other local gyms.


What types of students have you worked with?

I've trained with people of all ages and skill sets. Little girls who were being bullied to sparring with guys training for an upcoming fight. It doesn't matter if you're a beginner, we'll get better together.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I'm fond of any inspiring moment showcasing a person overcoming an obstacle to finally stand on top of the mountain.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Talk to people. Meet with people first and learn if they are a good fit for you. Ask questions and focus on "how" that person can help you. Ask for references. Ask to talk to other clients and/or their peers. In all matters of transparency there should be no problem with wanting to learn more about someone you are doing business with. Learn what their experiences are. You should feel good about doing business with someone. Make sure the people you train with will actually be available for you and not trying to scam you.


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

First, understand what your goals are and what you want. Without knowing this it will be difficult to find the best fit for you.

How does the trainers experience relate and apply to you?

How willing and often can the trainer be accessible to you?

Have examples of current or past training routines and eating habits? This will help the trainer better understand your needs, problem areas, and be able to make necessary changes to progress regularly.
