“With his curious, analytical mind and disciplined self-practice, you can’t help but perform better at whatever it is Justin is coaching. He strives to empower self-reliant, smart and confident athletes. Get him going on a health or fitness topic, and he will give you a heaping helping of informed guidance. He’s well-read and well-practiced; and most importantly, he is eager to share the full depth of his knowledge. In short, he’s the real deal in coaching.”
