Austin Hansen

Personal trainer

Austin is a certified personal trainer who specializes in sport performance and body composition. I’d consider myself a “Jack of All Trades” Trainer and Coach, with knowledge and experience in many aspects of human performance.

I like to take a principles based approach where context is the driving factor for the type of exercise or tools we are utilizing to achieve our goals" From growing up being extremely active and playing a variety of sports, I developed a passion for fitness with an emphasis on improving the composition, performance, and movement optimization of my body. This led to me wanting to help guide others in their pursuit of becoming better physically and mentally, so that they may live longer and healthier lives.
