About Justin

Aloha! I'm a Nationally Certified Fitness Professional and believe that we have the most passionate trainers on Maui. We want our community of Maui to become their healthiest version. My mission is to provide the best results and create healthy habits that will endure a lifetime.

I was born and raised on the beautiful island of Maui. Growing up, I constantly battled with being overweight. As soon as my doctor informed me that I was classified in an unhealthy BMI (body mass index) range, I immediately looked for ways to lose a couple of pounds. I tried all kinds of fad diets: liquid diets, cabbage soup diets, one-meal-a-day diets… Nothing worked. It wasn’t until I got involved with sports where I “kind of” learned how to eat and exercise properly

Education

I eventually fell in love with fitness, eating right, and sharing my story to others. To take the next step in my fitness journey, I dropped everything and followed my heart to travel 6,000 miles to the National Personal Training Institute in Orlando, Florida, where I spent over 500 hours of theory and hands-on training, including: program design, nutrition, anatomy, physiology, functional movement screening, pre/post rehabilitation, special populations, diabetic studies, and working with seniors and youth. I also became certified with bone density training in senior population, and sports performance to top off the time spent in Florida.

To ensure that you guys have the best results, it is a daily habit of mine to spend at least an hour each day to educate myself even further because I truly believe that there is no ceiling to the vast knowledge out there.
