Sweat PT Director Justin Fooks

Justin Fooks - Sweat PT Director

My name is Justin Fooks and I was born and raised in the Ohio/Pennsylvania region. I graduated with my Bachelor's in Exercise Science and a Master's Degree in Business Administration. I come from an athletic background, so I was originally following the strength and conditioning/coaching path on the college level. This was due to my passion in helping athletes excel in their respective sport, on an off the field. I carry that same passion to assist clients with crushing their goals one day at a time. I'm truly thankful to be in my position as Director of Personal Training at the Westside location. The role grants me the opportunity to make a positive impact in people's lives!
