Justin is part owner here at Fit Collective St. Catharines and takes superior pride in every opportunity to change someones life when they walk through our doors.
During my undergraduate degree at Brock University I played for the varsity baseball team. I was a part of the 2010 OUA gold medal and CIBA silver medal team. Although finishing on a high note with the team, I needed to undergo reconstructive surgery on my shoulder from baseball injuries. Since the surgery in June 2011 I have recovered well and couldn't have done it so successfully and quickly without CrossFit. I am now able to compete in CrossFit competition and most importantly have fun training for it.
Having a background in Kinesiology and having to recover from injuries and surgery myself, I am happy to program for those with injuries, in need of rehab, physiotherapy and recovery.
I am a Level 1 Certified CrossFit trainer and have completed the CrossFit Judges course to benefit my training skills and to apply this knowledge to judge competition athletes. I love training others as much as I love training myself and I will always bring energy, enthusiasm, and knowledge to anyone I train at Fit Collective St. Catharines or anywhere else. There is nothing more exciting to me than seeing someone realize their potential and achieving their goals that are geared towards health, fitness, and quality of life.
My coaching and leadership background through my coaching experience in minor hockey, and amateur baseball instruction with the Toronto Blue Jays Baseball Academy allows me to further educate our off season team training.
