Justin Humble is an executive and celebrity personal trainer based in Miami, Florida. During his time as a personal trainer, he has become renowned for working with multiple celebrities and professional athletes. Specializing in human performance and body recomposition training, Justin has accomplished his client's goals of body fat reduction while increasing lean muscle mass to enhance their physique with strong focus on movement quality and efficiency.
The foundations and core values of Justin's unique training style come from an athletic performance/strength and conditioning background that stems from his time playing college football. His online coaching business, The Humble Effect: Lifestyle Recomposition, is a 1-on-1 private coaching program that allows him to work with his clients closely by restructuring their current lifestyle. Justin then helps them to implement a custom effective training and nutrition plan to establish new positive habits to achieve any physique or performance goal.
Justin shares, "I believe we have 4 pillars of health: Physical, mental, emotional and financial health. Sometimes I will visualize it as 4 trees, for example if one tree gets sick and weak, it will spread to other trees around it and infect them, which weakens them all. It all starts with looking and feeling your best each day in order to also improve the other areas."
