“When my feet hit the floor in the morning, I know that there’s a purpose for my life that day. And whether it’s in my own personal training, or in the coaching of athletes, I believe that purpose is to shine a light, give my absolute best effort, and know that I didn’t hold anything back.”
Justin’s habit of giving his absolute best effort began when he was just a kid playing baseball, football and basketball in Arcadia, North Carolina. While he was playing baseball and football at North Davidson High School, the training aspect of sports began to intrigue him. That interest evolved into a passion at Appalachian State where he worked with ASU’s strength and conditioning staff training football, basketball and volleyball athletes.
Justin graduated from ASU with a bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science: Strength and Conditioning and a minor in Health Promotion.
Before joining Ultimate Athlete, Justin worked as a sports performance coach in Winston-Salem.
