Justin Andrews & Josh Trent: CES LIVE 2018
“Technology is not going away and if we can learn how to use it more effectively, then we can respect technology and our relationships in real life. That's especially important for me when it comes to my children; I want them to learn how to use technology in school, but I also want them to be able to have real relationships and connect with other people.” – Justin Andrews

Power Quotes From The Show
“On one side, we have technology that's making life easier. On the other side, we still have to remain conscience about our freewill and choice.” – Josh Trent
“Training the human body often gets overlooked and it's a stepping stone. People just aren't connected to their bodies like they should be. They want to go all out at the gym or try the latest trendy informational workout just because so-and-so said they had great results. A fit tech device isn't going to give you overnight results. You can use it to aide you in your mission, but it's still your own wellness journey.” – Justin Andrews
“Wearable devices give us so much great information, but sometimes it can be too much and it can be a distraction from our health goals. Just because you use a wearable, is it really going to make you change your life? As Dani Pardi has said, “Knowing is not the same thing as doing.” Actually, if you know and you don't do, it's the same as not knowing.” – Josh Trent
“The data from our wearbles is like a check-in mirror. It forces us to see how we're showing up and that's where the real change occurs. If you want a real life change, just checking in with what you did yesterday to know how you can improve today can be enough.” – Josh Trent
“You can measure sleep, but what are all the other variables that are contributing to it like stress? Maybe on paper your sleep looks good, but you have to consider all these other factors. Once we look at all of that, we can create the best plan to move forward.” – Justin Andrews

About Justin Andrews
has an incredible passion to disrupt the personal training industry and create ground breaking programs and tools that fitness professionals and clients alike can benefit from. The fitness industry in general needs a massive face lift to speak more to the generation growing up with a more advanced technology tool kit. Justin’s approach is to create programs that utilize technology as it advances and cut through the millions of options people face every day when seeking specific information relating to their fitness needs. The great thing about where we are today is how easy it is to access information, the bad part about accessing all this information is how much misinformation is out there to weed through. As a health and fitness professional with a proven track record here in the heart of the Silicon Valley, Justin will keep working tirelessly to keep people educated and connected to quality personal trainers long into the future.
