Justin earned his associates in health science in 2008 and certification through ACE fitness in 2009. He has experience in many different areas of fitness. Examples of these include strength and conditioning, active stretching, bootcamp, senior strength and balance, kettlebells, suspension training and more.
Justin feels that group classes and personal training are the best avenues of fitness.

Seeing each person as in individual has created his success as a trainer and he is excited to share his love of fitness with all who feel they would like to improve their lives.

I am currently an ACE certified personal trainer.I played organized sports all of my life, I played basketball and football all through high school and two years of college football, as well as intramural football, basketball and softball in college(won several intramural championships) and I have been weightlifting since 7th grade. I have ran the summer strength and conditioning program for the Lee High football team for three years and worked with several of my peers to help them gain a better understanding of exercise.
Shay Donald – I was far from an athlete when I was younger. I hated gym class in school and I didn’t play team sports. I studied psychology in college and halfway through my freshman year I took a cardio kickboxing class on a whim. I was hooked. From then on, I fell in love with fitness. I graduated college with a Bachelors in Psychology in 2004 and in 2011 I finally took the leap and I became a certified personal trainer. The key to fitness is finding something that you enjoy doing. Consistency is key, so I make fitness fun!
I have my personal training certification through ACE. I am TRX, Stages indoor cycling, Insanity, and Group fitness certified, and I am currently with my CPR and first aid certification. In addition, I have completed classes in Total Body Tabata, HIIT Training, Biomechanics of Assisted Stretching, Low Back Health Begins with the Core, Practical Pointers for Group Fitness, Working with 50+ and Older Clients, Strength Programing for Older Adults, Motivating Older Adults, and The Complete Corrective Exercise.
