Justin's Story


In 2000 Justin was pursuing a successful career in advertising in San Francisco. Committed to his work, Justin would spend prolonged periods of time sitting at his desk. The 10-hour days with poor posture began to take their toll and Justin noticed he was experiencing lower back pain. Before long the pain had developed from a nagging ache to becoming excruciating and preventing him from carrying out normal daily activities. In Justin’s quest for answers and healing, he discovered Pilates and on a trip to Europe, the Redcord system. This was a perfect compliment to his workout routine that helped him heal from his repetitive stress injury due to prolonged sitting and get strong and healthy again.

In 2011 Justin was so inspired that he made the difficult decision to leave his successful career in advertising and to form rebalanced SF. As a certified Pilates instructor as well as the first and only Northern California certified Redcord Active Specialist, Justin offers unrivaled knowledge and experience in Redcord and Pilates personal and small group training in San Francisco. Justin is one of only 20 trainers in the U.S. to carry the distinction of Redcord Active Pro Specialist.
