Josh Delesk – Fitness Professional

Josh began his fitness career journey while working at the Tallmadge Rec Center through high school and college. During this period he gained valuable hands on experience as a fitness attendant and as a supervisor. During this period he also worked closely with the fitness director on product selection, floor planning, maximizing user options, trends, and space. This allowed him to see how the process of selecting equipment works not only during purchasing but after you have the equipment for years to come.

In the spring of 2017 he graduated from the University of Akron, earning a bachelor degree in Exercise Science and a concentration in Fitness Management.

Josh is fortunate to spend his free time with his soon to be wife Gabrielle. Together they love to lift, run, play sports, and anything that includes staying active. Some of his favorite outdoor activities include kayaking, canoeing, and fishing.

Mike Justice  – Fitness Professional

Mike began his fitness career working the past 7 plus years at Berry’s Barbell and Fitness in Columbus, Ohio where he was the Sales Manager. Even though he was the “sales manager” for Berry’s, he was a jack of all trades, as he also did a majority of all the deliveries and installs, as well as some service. He was also responsible for ordering of equipment, scheduling deliveries and installs, account receivables, and managing and operating the retail store. Mike brings a wealth of experience to the process of selecting and purchasing equipment. He knows what it is like to sell, as well as get his hands dirty doing the delivery and installs.

Mike resides in Granville, Ohio with his wife and two amazing children. His son Avery (age 7) is extremely active in sports, playing: baseball, basketball, football, and soccer. His daughter Lila (age 5) is the swimmer of the family, as she loves the pool. She also plays soccer and tee ball. Mike is very active in his community, as he is on the school PTO board and is the committee chair for the sportswear division for the PTO. He also coaches his kids in every sport. Mike loves to play sports as well, and still plays baseball in two competitive wood bat baseball leagues in Ohio. Mike also has spent the last 14 years playing competitive Men’s fastpitch softball all over the United States. Mike has a strong background in sports, as he played three sports collegiately. He has always had a passion for fitness and the relationships that can be built with customer service and sales.


I never regret it when I do it, but I always regret it when I don’t.
