Justin Sullivan's Bio

Justin grew up on the Upper East Side of New York City. As a boy, he competed in sports such as basketball, hockey, and lacrosse, and he eventually played Division II lacrosse at the Dominican College of Blauvelt in Orangeburg, NY. Upon leaving college, Justin became a physical education teacher and a youth lacrosse coach. Being a teacher and coach helped shape his training philosophy with student athletes. Coaching athletes of various ages with different physical, adaptive, and cognitive abilities taught Justin that a one-size-fits-all approach is not suitable for all athletes. This philosophy is what encouraged Justin to further his education in the realm of physical education and become a certified personal trainer. When working with athletes, he believes in creating an environment that will foster confidence and a passion for movement. Combining his passions for physical education, personal training, and helping athletes with learning differences, Justin is a perfect fit for Empowered Sports and Fitness. Motivated by his love of working with student athletes, Justin has quickly become a favorite with the athletes he trains. 

Justin lives on the Upper East Side of Manhattan and enjoys playing basketball, lacrosse, and participating in yoga whenever he has the chance. He is also searching for the best slice of pizza in NYC. Recommendations are always welcomed as his search is not over yet.
