Justin Krashefski is an aspiring personal fitness trainer based in Boca Raton, Florida. A native of South Florida, Krashefski has long worked in the community preaching the importance of high standards for physical fitness. A former high school athlete, Krashefski grew up practicing and training so that he could be ready for game day. He has also worked in physically demanding jobs for many years, including a stint with the United States Coast Guard and with the Fort Lauderdale Police Department. Helping his community and keeping people safe required Krashefski to maintain a high level of physical conditioning. He was constantly motivated to work hard in training and conditioning so that he could perform well in high-pressure situations with people’s lives on the line.
Justin Krashefski has always been a consistent and dedicated runner, swimmer, and weightlifter in his free time. Although he modestly claims that running on the beach in South Florida is hardly a workout at all—more like a pleasure cruise—his dedication to himself turned into a dedication to his community over time. After years of working to serve and protect his community, he decided to help people in a different way. Krashefski attended Keiser University and earned an Associate’s degree in Sports Medicine. He then used the knowledge and experience he gained earning that degree to earn certification as a personal trainer from the American Council for Exercise. Justin Krashefski started telling his family and friends about the importance of regular exercise until they couldn’t stand any more advice from him. He returned to school recently to earn a Bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science and Health Promotion at Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton. Attending FAU allows Krashefski to stay close to home and gain the education and experience to open his own fitness studio in the city so that he can spread his knowledge and passion to as many of his neighbors and members of his community as possible. His family is greatly relieved to see him apply his energy to learning more about how to develop fitness plans for customers instead of talking their ears off about the importance of regular exercise.
Justin Krashefski has already made many strides in starting his career as a professional personal trainer. Already licensed, he has helped people develop fitness programs that help with their overall health and assist them in leading healthy, long lives. Everyone knows by now how important regular exercise is, but people often don’t know how to start their exercise regimens. Krashefski hopes to provide solutions to these people so they can reach their fitness goals and feel better longer in life. Krashefski hopes to graduate from FAU soon.
