Fitness Trainer Joe Shanley


I was always a “sports” kid but didn’t realize the importance of eating well and disciplined exercise until playing baseball at the collegiate level.  During my years at Sonoma State University, I worked hard at academics and baseball but also spent a lot of time at the campus fitness facility.  It was there that I discovered, not only a passion for health and fitness, but also that I was really drawn toward helping others improve, whether it was a teammate or someone struggling to get in shape.  I had never thought about a career in fitness but a professor of mine encouraged me to pursue my desire to be a business owner.  She explained and advised that combining business and passion often yield the best results both personally and professionally.

I took the advice to heart and got certified as a personal trainer with the National Academy of Sports Medicine.  I founded Fitness Built For You in 2002 and have not looked back.  I remain passionate when it comes to nutrition and fitness and continue to learn and grow in this ever-evolving field.  What is constant is my commitment to helping others as well as my desire to continuously improve, not only for myself, but also for my clients.

I have successfully been using my training style to motivate, educate, and inspire people to optimal levels of performance and balance in life.  I am driven to help my clients transform and to empower them to reach their full potential regardless of where they are on their fitness and health journey.

My pledge is always to deliver the finest experience by bringing my knowledge and expertise and a positive attitude, boundless energy, and 100% focus on the programs, workouts, and overall experience.  I truly believe that your success is my success and I am dedicated to ensuring your results are the very best they can be!
