Keynote Speaker – Justin Richards
More than a decade ago, Richards was a competitive athlete, earning high ranks in jiu-jitsu. He helped train the Nevada County Sheriff’s Office in self-defense, and worked with SWAT teams. This led him into the world of mixed martial arts, or MMA, a full-contact combat sport. But a fall 12 years ago during a competition changed the trajectory of his life.
 
“I jumped off a cage and landed on my head — it was a critical injury,” he said. “I lost hope — I couldn’t even pick up a water bottle. It was a real low point in my life. I was convinced no one could help me with my condition.”
 
After four years of not maintaining adequate upper body strength due to pain, Richards decided to try working with an Auburn-based sports chiropractor who introduced him to corrective exercise. Six months later he was pain-free and armed with a new approach to life — one based less on competition and more on giving back. He envisioned one day owning a gym that provided an individualized, holistic and educational approach to fitness.
