    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’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.

There is an initial fear we all have when we're deciding to join a gym and it's important that the gym is a good fit for you. 

We only want to show you how to be better.

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 if applicable. This will help the trainer better understand your needs, problem areas, and be able to make necessary changes to progress regularly.
