At JAVA we’re always trying to make healthier lifestyle choices – and we made a REALLY good life choice when we started working out at Jtab Training with our friend Joey. We’ll admit, it had been quite a while since we’d had a regular exercise routine and the thought of getting back into the swing of things was more then a little intimidating. Lucky for us, we found a fantastic guide back into the world of fitness and now we’re not only feeling stronger and healthier, but we actually look forward to working out!

We sat down with Joey to find out more about training, opening a gym and of course coffee:
What inspired you to open your own gym? “I was inspired to open a gym ’cause I really wanted to help people get strong, and gain confidence in themselves. I was also sick (still am! haha) of the myths in the Fitness Industry that people believe in. (Need “cardio”, don’t lift heavy (for females mostly), you can’t get “cardio” from lifting, lifting is dangerous…. Reality is it’s WAY more dangerous to be weak!)”
What is your Training? “My philosophy is lift heavy weights, get strong, get healthy and don’t eat like an idiot (eat like an adult). What that really means is I want people to be strong, fit, and to eat the way they “should” be eating, LOTS of protein, as much greens as they can get in and limit carbs and alcohol.”
What is your passion outside of the gym? “Passion outside the gym is easy, hanging out with friends. Also enjoy watching my athletes’s games, playing volleyball when I can, and of course watching my Superhero movies and shows! HULK SMASH!”
Your favorite JAVA Product? “Favorite JAVA Product is the scrub, I have lots of dark scar spots and it helps smooth out my skin organically and without chemicals.”
How do you take your coffee? “Coffee black with stevia (cold brew when I can)”
