We had the good fortune of connecting with Justin Bates and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Justin, any advice for those thinking about whether to keep going or to give up?
How I know I need to keep going is because I care about my clients health and well being. I know that caring for others is far bigger than oneself. Regardless the good and difficult times I have endured over the years, knowing my clients want my help and will always show up, has always given me the strength to always show up and be present for their needs and goals.


Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I am an independent personal trainer and also a master coach for tribe team training which is a global company whom trains other trainers and implements training programs for health clubs across the world . Our training programs teach trainers how to coach members within our programs and create lifestyle change for a lifetime. We create community, team and results for our members.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I’d love to take them to Sedona, go on a hike or two. Love Pisa Lisa there for some excellent pizza and find a nice Airbnb to enjoy the views and company with drinks or whatever the evening suits


Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Tribe Team Training, for mentoring me into changing lives for a lifetime, my brother Aaron Bates (hitting coordinator for LA Dodgers), for always giving his all to his family and team regardless my sister Jacqueline Bates for her spiritual strength and power words and inspiring me and my mother Joann Santana for always having my back and her unconditional love, guidance and words my entire life.
