JT Collins

JT has been in the fitness industry since 2000. Prior to Design Fitness, I was on the sports surfacing side of the industry selling Mondo rubber flooring. I joined Design Fitness in 2009. We were a much smaller company in those days. Kelly and I worked hard putting together a very talented and passionate team making Design Fitness what it is today. I very much enjoy working with clients helping them turn their vision of their fitness space into reality. The fitness industry is filled with incredible people and it is a pleasure to be a part of this industry. Outside of work, I enjoy traveling with my wife and hanging out with friends. I am also an avid golfer who isn’t as good as he used to be…lol.
