Justin Cross

Guided by a consciousness awakening in the face of bureaucratic hurdles, Justin founded Earn It All. A supervisor at a top defense contractor acknowledged his promotion-worthy excellence but deferred it for a decade, sparking Justin's aversion to mediocrity and the pervasive negativity that hinders personal growth. Before his name adorned an F35 fighter jet, Justin served four years in the Navy, including a transformative combat tour in the Middle East on an aircraft carrier.

As a "green shirt" on the carrier deck, Justin reveled in moments of celebration during docked periods. Yet, he recognized the importance of earning indulgences through fitness, setting the stage for a profound realization—life demands that you "earn it." This philosophy became the cornerstone of his brand and the embodiment of a universal truth: Earn It All.

Justin's entrepreneurial journey, marked by leaving an aeronautical engineering role just shy of a master's degree, has been a transformative quest with its share of highs and lows. These challenges, viewed through a spiritual lens, have fortified his inner strength and resilience, affirming his belief that living the life one desires is an earned endeavor.

Having navigated the complexities of business and faced tough decisions at Earn It All, Justin remains anchored in his mission. He is committed to the growth of individuals, offering personalized, goal-based fitness and nutrition programs that extend beyond the physical realm, aiming to transform not just bodies but hearts and minds.


Adam Niall

Adam firmly believes that one's past doesn't have to define their present. He is a testament to the transformative power of perseverance and hard work, demonstrating that one can overcome self-limiting beliefs and evolve into a better version of themselves.

As a Marine with multiple deployments during 'The War on Terror,' Adam's journey is nothing short of fascinating. His diverse experiences include working on multi-million-dollar fighter jets, contributing to the construction of the southern border wall, laboring in offshore oil fields, and educating others in college-level nutrition and physiology. These varied roles have granted him a holistic perspective on life, enabling him to comprehend and optimize the intricacies of human nature.

Living a fast-paced and challenging life, Adam once doubted he would make it this far. However, he underwent a profound transformation by changing his beliefs, discovering purpose, and is currently thriving as the Fitness Director at Earn It All. Every step of his journey has been earned through mental fortitude and resilience.

While deployed, Adam faced injuries that propelled him towards the pursuit of a healthier and fully optimized body, mind, and spirit. He committed himself to learning, obtaining over eleven fitness and nutrition certifications through diligent study (refer to the list below).

From experiencing the highs of life with a Ferrari and a lavish lifestyle to enduring lows that led him to contemplate suicide while sleeping in his truck, Adam has gained invaluable life lessons. These experiences have shaped him into the dedicated and ever-improving individual he is today.

Adam acknowledges that the past brought him to this point, but his gaze is perpetually forward. He understands that the choices made now are the building blocks of the future, and he remains committed to growth and improvement.
