Thanks to Justin I am healthier, stronger & finally down 16 pounds in my 40's! I feel confident, happier, have more energy, comfortable in my clothing, sleep better & just feel great! Justin has a positive encouraging attitude that will bring out the best in you! He always reminds you where you were so you can appreciate where you are! Also, he is a fountain of information regarding proper use of weights exercises, food, diet and the body so if you have a question he doesn't have to google it he tells you on the spot!
Being a collegiate athlete, the motivation, training and the encouragement he has given me was incredible. Not only do I have to stay physically fit, but also mentally tough as well. Training with Justin I was able to learn from his experiences and expertise in order to become more mentally and physically prepared for my senior year.
I have been taking training advice from Justin during my senior year in college. He has the knowledge and patience to help anyone out with their fitness goals. It doesn't matter what level you are. If you buy in to his programs and give 100% you will definitely be able to reach your goals. The atmosphere at his gym is very positive and encouraging. The cool part about his workouts is that he has a few variations for all exercises, so no matter what level of fitness you are, you can get a great workout in, and do it safely.
Getting into my 60's, being sedentary was not an option. Being able to workout on my physical fitness level has made working with Justin a positive situation. I had started out not being able to hold a plank for 30 seconds and now can hold a plank for 5 minutes!! No shouting or pushing, just positive encouragement. Super coach!
Justin's disposition is his number one strength, he motivates without pressuring and educates without talking down. He is able to motivate whole groups of people to aspire to be better just through positive reinforcement. Not only is he an amazing fitness coach who has helped me achieve seemingly unlikely goals, he is a positive addition to any group of people. Always pleasant to to be around and always reliable.
I wanted to share how excited I am over Justin and his classes! It may not seem like a big difference to many people, but it's only been 3 days a week for 3 weeks and I lost an inch and a half off my waist. I feel stronger, have more energy, and look forward to my workouts at Yanagida Strength & Fitness. If you're looking to become the best version of yourself with a positive and motivating coach, come to Yanagida Strength & Fitness!
Justin is so positive and encouraging. He really challenges you but also provides the support you need. I lost 3 inches off my waist, 1 inch off my arms and 1 inch off my thigh in only three weeks. I am so excited and motivated to keep going!
Before I met Justin, I injured myself, and was never able to get back to weight lifting. I've trained with Justin for 10 weeks, I've learned so much from talking to him in person, emails, and phone calls. He would respond with very detailed information on exercises, general fitness, and nutrition. When I first saw Justin, I weighed 230 lb, and could barely lift 135 lb for anything. On my tenth week, I hit a new PR of 405 lb squat, 245 lb bench press, 275 lb deadlift, and LOST 10 lb. Justin motivated me so much to hit my goals and walked me through every step losing weight while gaining strength.
