"The internship at State of Fitness with Justin Grinnell changed my life in so many ways. I came into State of Fitness as a meathead college wrestler who thought he knew everything there was to know about working out and fitness. Man was I wrong. Justin and his staff flipped my world upside down as they took me under their wing and taught me the importance of functional strength, mobility, exercise technique, programming, nutrition and most important they taught me how to be a professional coach."
