Hello! I'm Justine Tapp, your NASM Certified Personal Trainer, NASM Certified Nutrition Coach, and dedicated Group Fitness and female Boxing Instructor based in the Kansas City area.

My journey in sports and fitness has been a lifelong commitment. As a former two-sport collegiate athlete and MMA cagefighter, my passion for wellness extends beyond the gym. With experience managing nutrition stores and contributing as an Occupational Therapist on the rehabilitation team in an acute care hospital, I bring a diverse skill set to my current role as a personal trainer and nutrition coach.

Having personally witnessed the impact of health and nutrition on individuals in acute care, I understand the crucial role proper nutrition and activity play in transforming lives. I am committed to supporting you on your journey, guiding you from foundational mobility and movement to advanced training.

Every day, I strive towards my own fitness goals and seize every opportunity to share my passion for health and fitness with others. My mantra, 'The difference between who you are and who you want to be is what you do,' encapsulates my belief in taking purposeful action in living life to your fullest potential.

I've been working with Justine virtually for the last 10 months. Recently we have started to also focus on the nutritional side of things and not just the workouts. Justine is extremely knowledgeable and able to adjust workouts as needed. I am now able to complete exercises and movements that I honestly never thought I would again after breaking my ankle a few years ago. I can't wait to see what this next year has in store as I continue my health journey with her!

I first got connected with Justine through group boxing fitness classes and started personal training sessions shortly after. I couldn't speak more highly of my experience training with her. From the very first session Justine has been intentional and thoughtful in building a program that is geared specifically towards my goals. She has even worked with me to put together workouts while traveling so I can stay consistent - something that is super important to me. She truly cares about all of her clients and I am confident she can put something together for anyone - no matter what you're looking to do or what fitness level you at at. I couldn't recommend working with Justine enough.

Working with Justine had been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. As someone with virtually zero knowledge of the world of fitness, her encouragement and guidance has been absolutely vital to my progress. In the short time I've had the privilege of working with her, I've learned immensely more than expected about how to improve myself and unlock potential I could not have recognized without her. I wholeheartedly believe that anyone in search of a personal trainer should consider Justine. Choosing her has been of the best decisions I've made, and I greatly look forward to our continued work.

My daughter has been training with Justine for several months now. Every workout is different, always something fresh. Lots of energy. She loves seeing her each week! Other than coming out drenched in sweat the biggest difference I have seen is how much her confidence has grown! We definitely will keep seeing her and recommend her to everyone!

I’ve worked with Justine for more than a year, and have the progress charts to prove that she’s the best personal trainer in the greater KCMO area. She pushes me to get stronger every week, but does so with a compassionate and thoughtful approach. You won’t regret working with her.

I used Justine’s remote training program with the app and it was so organized and easy to get in touch with her if I had any questions/modifications/comments. She checked in weekly, sending a little feedback form of what I liked, what was challenging, and what I did outside of her program to better myself. I loved how personalized my program was to my goals, you could tell how thoughtful she was with each movement added. I highly, highly recommend Tapp Into Fitness for any of your fitness and wellness goals!

I’ve been working with Justine since 2022. She is empowering, helpful, kind, and motivating. Her background in occupational therapy makes her extremely knowledgeable. She has always makes me feel like I belong in the gym, which is huge for me because before I started training with her I never felt comfortable on my own working out and I used to be extremely self conscious. Justine has helped me find joy and accomplishment in exercise and strength training, and I highly recommend her to anyone looking for motivation or to make life changes.

I have worked with several personal trainers and Justine is by far the best. She creates workouts that help me achieve my goals and are challenging. She also mixes it, which I love, and has helped me work around some injuries. I love the mix of in-person and doing workouts designed for me on my own.
