Hi! My name is Justin Mickels and welcome to Evolution Fitness! If you clicked on the “About” button, I’m going to assume you want to know who I am! I am a personal trainer, nutritionist, prep coach, and overall fitness enthusiast. I began my fitness journey five years ago when I saw myself falling into a lifestyle that I didn’t enjoy. I wasn’t physically active or fit and was gaining weight due to poor nutrition choices. I ate crap food, drank, and didn't have any direction in my life. I wasn’t happy or enjoying the path my life was on. I knew that it was time to make a change, and step one was going to the gym. I started going to the gym and I would see the bodybuilders and all the fitness enthusiasts and this motivated me to start my quest to improve myself. This quest has led me to greatly improving my own health, physique, and quality of life. I started of as a small 145 pound guy who could barely bench 95 lbs. Through proper nutrition, hard work in the gym, consistency, and an ever-evolving passion for fitness I’ve put on over 60 pounds of muscle and I’m now the strongest, leanest, happiest, and healthiest I’ve ever been!
I did the 8-5 corporate desk job, following in society's norm to find a "career" for seven years. Throughout that time period I found my true passion was in fitness and I realized life is too short to not pursue my passion and do what I love. I began to help family and friends with their nutrition and physical health in my free time. Helping them achieve their goals made me realize that I could change the lives of people who were in similar situations as myself. I slowly realized that the corporate world wasn't for me and I didn't want just a "job", I wanted to follow a path to happiness and success by doing what I love and helping others do the same. This is when I took the plunge and quit my job to pursue my dream and start Evolution Fitness!
I want to help you achieve your goals, and help you make the lifestyle improvements to be the happiest and healthiest version of yourself.
