Javes Lewis is a name that is familiar to many in the football world. As a former University of Oregon standout defensive back, Javes earned a full-athletic scholarship and went on to help lead the Ducks to the 2011 BCS National Championship game. Although the Ducks lost, Javes is familiar with winning at the highest level. His hard work, focus and dedication landed him in the NFL as a member of the Kansas City Chiefs preseason squad (2011), and in the CFL as a member of the Toronto Argonauts (2011-2012).
Javes understands and values the benefits of exercise and physical training, which ultimately led to his pursuit and achievement of becoming a Certified Personal Trainer through the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) and is currently working on the certifying body’s Performance Enhancement Specialist (PES) certification to accompany his athletic knowledge and experience in helping other athletes achieve high levels of success.
As a fitness professional, Javes steps onto a new gridiron – the battle against obesity and other chronic diseases that affect our community. His new goal is to use the skills that helped propel him to the highest level in football, to motivate and excite others in the benefits of living healthy and active lifestyles.
