ABOUT JUSTIN

I am a different kind of strength coach. I come from a Mechanical Engineering background and became a full-time coach simply because I had to. I began coaching out of my passion for movement, athletics, and teaching. Shortly though, I realized that I had to leave engineering to focus my path on my three highest coaching values: Movement, Strength, and Education. That was over 5 years ago and I have now worked with 100's of individuals to improve their lives through movement.

Over the years, my philosophy grew much deeper and more holistic . My programs and coaching are for individuals who want to develop more than just strength and athleticism, but a deep relationship with their body and mind. Using various modalities, I create personalized programs that build strength, mobility, and stability for beautiful and fluid movement. You will cultivate an awareness and gratitude for your body that lead to a healthy and fulfilling life.

My life and coaching center around my personal mantra - Always something to work on, always something to celebrate. A meaningful life and optimal health come from the finding the balance between a quest for progress and gratitude for what you have and what you have accomplished.

Always something to work on, always something to celebrate

As a competitive athlete, passionate teacher, and perpetual seeker, I have been exploring movement my whole life. From gymnastics and soccer as a child, to running and triathlons, CrossFit and Olympic weightlifting,  to skateboarding, surfing, yoga, I have committed my life to seeking the awareness and fulfillment that comes with new physical challenges. As a coach, I bring this same fun and exploration into your program. Whether you are a high-level athlete seeking to improve in your sport, an advanced mover seeking to grow your gymnastics or handstand prowess, or just beginning your journey, I can guide you toward your goals.

I teach workshops, both independently and with the RKC, and offer online coaching. I would love to work with you to move your fitness journey forward.
