Justina MacDowell competed in a number of athletics growing up including dance, track, martial arts, skating, gymnastics, wrestling and kickboxing but her primary sport was soccer which led her to train with DJ beginning in 2006 with the Seattle Sounders Women. She has been training at Maximum Sports Conditioning ever since. The results she saw from her training inspired her to pursue a career coaching strength and conditioning programs. She declared her major in Exercise Science and minor in sport psychology in 2008 at Western Washington University. Justina designed and implemented strength and conditioning programs for WWU club/recreational sports department. She completed multiple training internships around the region including extensive periods working with Athletic Training Institute in Bellevue, Everett physical therapy and sports performance center and Whatcom soccer academy.

Immediately after graduating she looked to gain more experience with her movement studies in a gym setting starting at Seattle Executive Fitness, Golds Gym and Myspine chiropractic where she specialized in small group sports programs. Justina spent 5 years focusing her efforts on coaching youth soccer and coaching education with the United States Soccer Federation. Between coaching club, high school, college and technical camps Justina has over 8 years experience coaching soccer and team management. After a serious hip injury training with the Seattle Reign Justina shifted her focus back towards the foundation of athletics - Strength and conditioning.
