“I have spent most of my life making athletes fitter, Faster and Stronger. WE all have goals both as athletes and as Coaches, Mine is simply to help you achieve yours and ones that follow.”
From the first day I started coaching I have been passionate about performance at the highest level. This doesn’t always mean working with elites, but rather getting the maximum amount of improvment out of someone in the shortest possible time with the least possible risks. Perfomance is about striving to do everything correctly, in order to gain maximum benifits. This goal and the process that drives it is the same regardless of who you are or the level you are at.
Training with Justin Trolle
Semi- Custom Plan
Sports Testing & Video Analysis
“I’m a nurse who worked 12 hour shifts and thought back pain, leg pain, and foot pain were just a part of life that came from the long shifts. Moving patients, lifting patients, and being tired all of the time are just nursing things. Then, I started working with Justin. He took my personal goals and assessed my weaknesses and began to train me to increase my strength to endure those long 12 hour shifts. After a few weeks, I noticed my back wasn’t hurting anymore when I got home. I wasn’t so tired all of the time. A few more weeks later, the leg and foot pain decreased. What started out as wanting to get stronger for work turned into getting stronger for me and my confidence in myself grew tremendously. I started to wear leggings which I never have before because my legs looked and felt so strong! My arms have never looked the way they do now and I wore a tank top for the first time in my life a few days ago to workout. Overall, I feel healthier and better about myself. “
“Working with Justin has brought me from a hard working talented multi sport athletes to an elite at the top of the national and international field.
His attention to detail and data keeps me constantly improving, while his flexibility allows for when life happens.
I am certain I wouldn’t be where I am today without his persistence and coaching. “
“Justin is an exceptional coach when it comes to creating an individually-based data driven training program for each athlete. He has helped me identify areas that need improvement and then implemented his sport science background to help me fill in the gaps. His training program has pushed my limits but has also raised my level. His communication is excellent as well as his ability to listen to his athletes and make adjustments to the plan last minute based off how I’m feeling.”
