Hello! My name is Justin. My friends calls me Jay. I am passionate about Fitness, Circus Arts and helping inspire others to succeed at their goals. As an arts educator, juggler and performing entertainer I have traveled the world performing and teaching circus arts for a diverse range of people from all different backgrounds. I have found my passion for helping others through movement and fitness has become a huge part of who I am.  Currently living  in North Seattle, I am inspired to continue my journey as a coach and trainer with a specialty in Personal Fitness, Goal Achievement and Circus Training.  I am currently enrolled in the NASM CPT program as well as the Corrective Exercise Specialist and the Behavior Change Specialist programs to further enhance my wide range of  skills and past training in body mechanics so that I can be the best I can be at helping others achieve their fitness goals.  I also have relevant experience in sales, exceptional customer service and I have a passionate drive to succeed at my goals. I am confident, capable and motivated to help create a fun, positive environment that  encourages people to be the best version of themselves. Personal training is a career that I am very happy to have as a opportunity to fulfill my own mission of being healthy, motivated and someone who helps others bring their goals into action. I enthusiastically look forward to becoming a valuable member of your team.
