“Train Like an Athlete.”
Jungin Jung, or JJ as he’s known at the gym, joined SoHo Strength Lab in August 2015. His journey in becoming an athletic trainer took off in Oklahoma where he studied Athletic Training at Oklahoma State University and expanded to Long Island University in Brooklyn where he earned a Master’s of Science in Advanced Athletic Training.
Before joining SoHo Strength Lab, he was a graduate assistant athletic trainer, working with women’s soccer, baseball, and track and field teams. He also held many athletic training, and strength and conditioning internships, including with Major League Soccer, the National Strength and Conditioning Association and the University of Pittsburgh.
JJ’s motto has always been “Train Like an Athlete”. He believes in potential in every human being. Regardless of age, physical characteristics or previous athletic levels, he treats every client like a professional athlete—not an athlete that plays vigorous sports on the field, but an athlete who has the potential to grow and develop their fitness and performance level.
As an Athletic Trainer and Strength and Conditioning Coach, he firmly believes that good rehab comes from balancing all body parts as a single unit—instead of just one weakened area—and he incorporates this belief by providing his clients with a holistic rehab routine through a combination of RNT (regeneration, nutrition and training). The balancing of these three components maximize one’s fitness and performance levels.
JJ has experiences in training wide variety of clients, from general population to professional and tactical athletes and is an expert at designing unique programs for each individual with different assets and goals. His focus varies from rehabilitation, prehabilitation, power, strength, speed and agility, to flexibility, coordination and balance, and more.
He is a Certified Athletic Trainer (NATA), Certified Strength and Conditioning Coach (NSCA), Corrective Exercise Specialist (NASM), Sports performance coach level I (USAW), USA Track and field Coach Level I (USTF) and Functional Movement Screen Level I (FMS).
