Justin "Azzey" Ancona
Director of Fitness
My name is Justin Ancona and I am proud to say I am a fitness trainer at Elevate!
I have been working in the fitness industry doing personal training for four years and am certified through the National Federation of Professional Trainers (NFPT). In addition, I obtained a B.B.A. from Florida International University in International Business and Business Management. Throughout my career in the fitness industry I have had the pleasure of training a wide variety of people ranging from children, special needs children, paraplegics, athletes, seniors, and middle aged adults, to the teen trying to add some muscle to his or her frame.
Working in the fitness industry for four years. I’ve worked at big health clubs like LA fitness, ran my own bootcamps, and even ventured into doing my own personal training before finding Elevate Training & Fitness. The reason why I believe Elevate is by far the most effective and best training gym around is the environment that our staff and our members have created. We appreciate each and every one of our clients, and you can feel the energy when you walk into our facility. The Elevate staff is always involved in our members’ progression over the weeks and months that they dedicate to our workouts. We work hard to make sure we design workouts to keep our clients safe while delivering an intense workout and great results. Elevate has re-invigorated my passion for fitness. I love this place and I want to share that with as many people as possible!
I have found my passion and purpose in life: to train and help others live a healthy lifestyle.
I am currently a nursing student and stumbled upon Elevate Training and Fitness in February of 2014. I had always been into working out at local commercial gyms, but I wanted something different that would push me to train harder than I had ever trained before. Elevate granted that wish for me. Once I started as a member I began to see a dramatic difference in my body’s endurance, strength, and look. Working out became a true passion of mine and I wanted to share this passion with others. I recently became the first female trainer here at Elevate and I am honored to be a part of this prestigious training facility and family. Guiding and teaching other women how to train hard and live healthy has become a craving that will never leave me. I love pushing others to their maximum effort and then seeing the smile on their faces once a session is finished. I always followed the motto “Love what you do and you will never work a day in your life”.. and that is what I am doing.
My dream is to grow as a trainer with the Elevate and learn as much as I can to become well-rounded in all aspects of fitness. All the trainers in our gym are extremely knowledgeable and know what it takes to help ANYONE achieve their fitness goals. I encourage anyone of any shape, size, age, or gender that is looking to “up their game” in the fitness world to join our family. We will welcome you with open arms and push you like you have never been pushed before, while making sure you come back for more.
