My name is Alan Threatt, owner of Just Fit. My passion for training started when I was 22 years old. At that time, I didn’t have an athletic bone in my body; just a strong will to change my physical appearance. Since then, fitness has been the foundation for my every accomplishment. Until fitness, I was the type of individual that never finished anything I started. Ironically, I meet people every day who are successful in every other aspect of their life except being fit. From those principles, I have been successful at inspiring clients to be the best person they can be in and out of the gym.
Just Fit is a representation of who I am outside of my career: the things I like and the type of people I like to surround myself with. I wanted my business and the look of my company to remind myself of who I am and my purpose in life. I wanted to create a situation that allowed me to treat my customer like I would want to be treated.
Although, exercise is very physical, my strongest attribute is in the field of exercise psychology. With each client, my first objective is to identify what fuels this individual and what principles I need to use to facilitate a more effective, consistent, and mentally resilient client. Therefore, I’m looking for you to be there as scheduled, striving for optimal performance every time and understand that perfection is available to you. It is your responsibility to make the time and work for it! The same principles apply in every aspect of our lives. Why should health and fitness be any different?
Staying in shape is absolutely essential to me for continued growth and success! My training style is complex; mostly because I don’t have an athletic background. So, I don’t tend to lean more toward any one style of training. It’s more of a calculated mix of conventional strength training, plyometric training, athletic performance, boxing and endurance training. I love anything with short explosive bursts of speed and power.
The best question I ever had a client ask me was, “Alan do you think I can do that?” The association with accomplishment will always keep me actively working with clients on the floor. I think that is where the real value lies in my career as a fitness professional. I am a spiritual person and one of my daily prayers is continue strength to provide the highest quality of training services.
