Justin Singer: Mekanix Gym / XPT Master Coach

033 Justin Singer: Mekanix Gym / XPT Master Coach

Welcome Huddle Haven Team!  We’re excited to introduce you to this week’s guest, Justin Singer.  Justin is Founder of MEKANIX gym and is an Extreme Performance Training, “XPT” Master Coach.

Justin spent many years exploring various paths in his quest to find an interesting, efficient, and effective fitness regimen.  He tried Olympic lifting, long-distance running, various sports including rugby, rock-climbing, and extreme CrossFit.  He wanted to identify training that would keep him strong and healthy; and also allow him to exercise in a way that would promote longevity.

Justin’s journey led him to body weight / functional exercise, in particular, calisthenics.  Calisthenics allowed him to get stronger than he ever was before, it’s safe, it’s made his body more mobile, it’s fun, and it has captivated his imagination for exploring all of our body’s capabilities.

With limited instruction and gym options, Justin launched into the world of entrepreneurship, deciding to create a place that would not only fulfill his needs but also serve as a hub for the Houston community…MEKANIX was born.

The MEKANIX team creates a well-rounded fitness experience through premiere coaching, programming, and a tight-knit community.  MEKANIX is Texas’s only gym focused on calisthenics, a time-tested form of body weight training that provides superior strength, mobility and flexibility training.  Calisthenics provides a powerful pathway to exploring your body’s physical (and mental) capabilities for a lifetime of physical fitness.

Please welcome MEKANIX Founder, and XPT-Master-Coach, Justin Singer.
