Justin Knoedler


Justin, a Springfield native, came to Body Symmetry as a client in 2003 with a desire to improve his athleticism to enhance his career as a professional baseball player.  Following successful years at Springfield High School, Lincoln Land Community College, and Miami University (OH), Justin was drafted in the 5th round of the 2001 Major League Baseball Draft by the San Francisco Giants.  After spending two full seasons in the minor leagues, Justin decided he needed to improve his speed, strength, flexibility, and endurance in order to make it to the next level.  During the following off-season, he turned to Body Symmetry where a three-month program was designed to help him meet his fitness goals.  Justin’s hard work and dedication paid off as he made his Major League debut with the Giants in the following season.

Since his debut in 2003, Knoedler has played for four other MLB organizations, including the Cardinals, Marlins, Athletics, White Sox, and Dodgers, and has trained in each organization’s strength and conditioning program.  Similar to his initial training experience at Body Symmetry, Justin has found that fitness programs designed around each individual player’s needs are the most successful in achieving optimal performance results.  Justin spends his off-seasons training at Body Symmetry, continually evolving and building his own personal training program with the new knowledge and techniques he picks up during his time in the Major Leagues.  Justin’s personal training success has driven him to return to Springfield to pass on his knowledge to younger athletes through a sport-specific training program at Body Symmetry targeting middle school, high school, and collegiate athletes.  Justin is passionate about providing young athletes fitness and nutritional guidance designed to fit their personal goals.  He hopes to jump start both healthy lifestyles and successful athletic careers.
