Founder & CEO of Consistency Breeds Growth
Yale University MS
Justin Romaire is the Co-founder and Co-CEO of Consistency Breeds Growth (CBG). After playing 4 years of college baseball as a D1 middle relief pitcher he needed something to continue fueling his competitive spirit. He attended Yale University obtaining his MS in Organic Chemistry by synthesizing therapeutic small molecules for HIV-1 virus. This has allowed him to understand the intricate complexity of metabolic disease, and more specifically the mechanisms and complex molecules involving periodized nutrition, energy system training, and the neuroendocrine system. However, it wasn't until he began competing in the sport of CrossFit that he truly realized his educational background could be used to help athletes reach their physical and mental capabilities. Using his educational background as a platform, Justin began building his coaching experience by obtaining his CF Level 1, and Functional Movement System (FMS) Movement Screen Level 1 Certification. With Justin's experience as a nutrition coach for 5+ years he founded CBG and has been accumulating interactions and observable results with over 1000+ clients. This fuels his passion to make a diﬀerence within the performance and weight loss community.

Doctor of Physical Therapy
Rebecca Szymialowicz has been an avid athlete since a very young age being involved in sports such as gymnastics, swimming, tennis, and track. Her love of the human body, and challenging its every limits, inspired her to earn her Doctorate degree in Physical Therapy in order to fully appreciate the true functionality that each and every individual person is capable of. However, it wasn't until she graduated from college that she fell in love with the sport of CrossFit. Although her primary job of physical therapy is in the acute care setting, Rebecca continues to assist CBG with grasping a better understanding and evaluation of the sports performance athletes. Rebecca is dedicated to helping athletes who are returning from an injury, suﬀering from a current injury, or have an underlying movement limitation they may not be aware of. Rebecca's 7 years of education, 3 years of working experience, mixed with her experience as a CrossFit athlete gives CBG the scientific advantage in truly understanding how the human body can be tested in a safe, controlled environment.
Sports Nutrition Coach
Syracuse University MS
Justyna has been both an athlete and science lover since she was a kid. She was always drawn to how the environment aﬀects our bodies' physiology at a molecular level. As time progressed, that desire led to an interest in how our DNA interact with the environment, physiology, and the foods that we consume. This led Justyna to pursue a bachelor's in biology at Arcadia University and a MS in molecular nutrition sciences at Syracuse University. While at Syracuse, she was the lead investigator and author on a research project that examined the molecular associations between endocrine-disrupting environmental toxicant levels, diet quality, and the risk/progression of hormonal cancers. Her research found that high intake of environmental toxicants and low diet quality, have the potential to alter DNA methylation patterns, gene expression patterns, and inflammatory responses resulting in increased risk to breast cancer. With 6 years of research and education experience, Justyna is able to understand and use genetic blueprints to increase athletic performance, diet and life quality for our CBG clients and athletes!

Yale University BS
Mark has played sports his entire life before discovering CrossFit in high school, while trying to build strength without losing his conditioning. Mark quickly realized that he preferred focusing solely on CrossFit and hasn't looked back. Although he played a bit of rugby while obtaining his BS in economics from Yale University, he continued pouring time and energy into studying CrossFit. Mark obtained his CF Level 1 his junior year of college, and has been coaching as much as possible ever since. Mark's 6+ years experience with the sport has positioned him well to assist newer athletes with understanding the complex rigors of fitness, including those not associated directly with time in the gym, such as nutrition and mental fitness.
