Hi! My name is Justin.
I am a personal trainer and yoga instructor living in Portland, Oregon. I specialize in group and personal training, offering a variety of modalities for any fitness level. I teach classes, work one-on-one with clients and host some really awesome retreats.
I carry a message of self love and kindness. No matter who you are or where you are in your fitness journey, I want you to feel strong and be happy.
You're doing a great job!
You're Doing a Great Job! is a mentality. It's a life of positivity and forgiveness. It is loving yourself just the way you are while always searching for the best possible you.
Physical fitness has had a bad rap. It's not about how you look. It's not about a summer body or getting those gains. It's not just for jocks or the "naturally beautiful.' Physical fitness, be it a plain ole gym or group fitness, is there to help us deal with the stress of living. Everyone is battling something. Everyone has worry, fear and regret. Maintaining a healthy and balanced fitness regiment allows you compartmentalize the daily flurry of thoughts and feelings.
I know if I have a great workout in the morning, I have accomplished something for the day. I have done something, something for myself and something that inherently makes me a better person. Feeling accomplished and successful is a basic human need. And allowing yourself the opportunity to be successful is a RADICAL ACT OF KINDNESS that will only result in your own happiness.
Get up. Do something. And no matter what that is -- a yoga class or a gut-wrenching training session -- remember that you're successful in the act of merely showing up. You're doing a great job. At home, at work, in the gym.
You're doing a great job, because you are doing what you can and THAT is all that anyone can ask of you.
