Justin is a former multi-sport athlete (basketball, football, and track) who fell in love with Olympic Weightlifting. So much so that he placed fourth in the Snatch at the 2015 American Open. Why did he start CrossFit? He was inspired to try it after seeing a blockbuster film. "I watched the movie 300 and found out that Mark Twight, who trained the actors, started in CrossFit before branching off. I learned everything I could about it and attended my first Level 1 in 2008."
The following year, Justin was hit with a personal tragedy. He lost both his best friend and uncle to cancer, in the same week. At that moment, he realized life was too short. He decided to follow his dream of opening his own CrossFit gym and has never looked back. To this day, it’s the best decision he’s ever made.
