Who is Juston? An Athlete and a Scholar in Fitness
Juston is a rare commodity in the industry: an athlete and an academic in the realm of fitness. With a history deeply rooted in sports science and exercise physiology, he embodies a unique blend of athletic prowess and scientific understanding. Raised in Spain, Juston discovered his calling for fitness at an early age. While most teenagers at 16 are figuring out their favorite video games or television shows, he was diving deep into sports sciences and exercise physiology.
Fred Chevry, founder of The Razor, sums it up:
"Juston is the guy I always wanted to hire, but couldn't afford such expertise in the early days of the business. I have great appreciation for how versatile and hyper-specialized he is at the same time. In the same conversation, he'll be able to educate you on strength training periodization, stretching for pregnant women, and cutting-edge peptides no one else knows about."
The Athletic Endeavors
When it comes to being an athlete, Juston is not just about the looks or the brawn. He lives the lifestyle. His athletic mindset is not only evident in how he performs but also in how he inspires others to perform. This is a man who overcame childhood asthma through kinesiology and fitness, transforming his limitations into strengths.
The Meeting that Changed It All
A chance meeting at a Miami Beach gym turned into a lifelong friendship and a successful partnership with Fred Chevry. Both driven by their passion for fitness and the science behind it, it was inevitable that Juston would one day become the Head Coach at The Razor.
A Penchant for Writing: The Blogger Times
Before taking up the reins at The Razor, Juston was already sharing his valuable insights through blogs. His well-researched articles ranged from intricate biochemical processes affecting muscle growth to the role of psychology in fitness success. His transition from a blogger to a head coach only confirms his versatility and the depth of his knowledge.

Q&A With Juston: The Heart of His Philosophy
Whatever works best; that seems obvious when stated so simply, but you'd be surprised how often people let themselves get comfortable doing the wrong thing. Approaching fitness with a problem solving mentality will help achieve the best results." as shown in What Would Happen If You Trained Your Shoulders For 21 Days Straight?
What sets you apart from other trainers?
Do you have any tips for someone just starting on their fitness journey?
"A constant questioning of what I know and desire to improve upon it, as well as zero desire for anything that isn't results oriented. Too often you see trainers stubbornly rooted in their ways, or overly focused on flashy, feel-good practices that yield no tangible results. "
What's one fitness product that you swear by, and why?
"Shape your goals in the right way; your body is a reflection of your lifestyle, and no temporary change is going to bring on lasting results. If you want to look a certain way, you have to first live a certain way, and your image will reflect that."
Where do you see the fitness industry going in the next 5-10 years?
"Pre-workout. Seems a tad obvious, but that's kind of the reason why; caffeine (or any stimulant for that matter) will help push through moments where you otherwise quite literally would not have had it in you. That, plus the incorporation of nootropics and pump agents, can bridge the gap for most people to get into fitness that would've otherwise lacked the "oomph", as well as keeping them on track when things falter."
"This may be a little pessimistic, but given the state of social media and the rise of shorter and shorter form content, I see the industry continuing to dilute in terms of quality when it comes to content, which in turn is all that most people are exposed to. That's why services like these are so important in my opinion, as they allow for proper education rather than needing to be molded for the algorithms sake."
