Name: Justin Townsend
City you live in: Scottsdale
A typical day in my life includes… morning coffee and admin correspondence, workout, appointments and consults, staff training and development, cooking dinner with a good movie.
I was born… 4/24/1981
My favorite thing about Arizona…. the never-ending summers and the beautiful views!
I’m listening to…. a little bit of TX country peppered with some rock and 90’s rap.
My family…. bigger than just blood for me, those close friendships mean the most to me. BUT my mother has been an incredible mentor for me my whole life.
If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be… going to scale this up a bit with a table including Arnold Schwarzeneggar, Sylvester Stallone, Chuck Norris, George Strait, and Chad Smith (co-owner of Mobile Trainers!)
One thing I cannot live without… iced tea! It’s an addiction I’m not currently prepared to confront.
When I was younger, I wanted to be…. a car designer.
I’m inspired by… individuals that never feel they have reached their peak and are striving to always be a better person today than they were yesterday.
The one person who motivates me is… my mother, an incredible example of perseverance and success.
If I could change anything in the world, it would be… I feel that Mobile Trainers and I are working on that right now!
The perfect day would be… coffee, gym, pool, happy hour with friends!
My first job was…. as a lifeguard for Schlitterbahn Waterpark when I was 16!
My favorite escape… the ocean always helps to recenter me to have a healthier perspective.
My life… has been an amazing rollercoaster with the best parts of the ride yet to come!
I’m currently working on…. growing Mobile Trainers into the accessible household brand leader in fitness!
Always… keep putting one foot in front of the other, all other choices hold yourself and those you love back
Never… give in unless it’s really hard math. Then I highly suggest asking for some help.
Favorite Quote… Really struggled with this one so I’m going to put down two:
- You’re never too old to put random stuff into people’s shopping carts when they aren’t looking
- We’re all brave until we realize cockroaches have wings
Biggest Dream… To start my own town! Been laying out the planning on that one for years now!
My Pet Peeve(s)… When someone fails to do something they say they are going to do. It just doesn’t compute for me how they could not?
