Justin Greskiewicz
Philadelphia, PA


Not only a fighter, Justin Greskiewicz is now a gym owner as well. Stay Fly Muay Thai of Philadelphia opened in January of this year. As many full time gym owners will attest, “That is taking up a lot of my time recently.” He is grateful that he can make it a full time occupation—like many Muay Thai devotees, Greskiewicz is happy to live and breathe his chosen occupation. Though he has some outside interests, such as his motorcycle and going to the movies, he admits that “free time is hard to come by.”

Despite its time-consuming nature, Greskiewicz is finding running his own place rewarding: “It's been amazing. It really is the greatest atmosphere I’ve ever been a part of at any gym. It's exciting.” He enjoys being able to dedicate his time to teaching nearly all the classes, working with top level fighter Eric Utsch, and having great students and teammates to help out. “I'm proud of them, and can't wait to see what the future brings.”

He certainly has the credentials to teach his chosen ar t of Muay Thai—with 21 professional wins, 9 of them by knockout, and an impressive amateur run of 24 fights, including 6 more knockouts, Greskiewicz has dedicate the last decade to a sport with which he “fell in love instantly.”

Despite the hectic gym schedule and his dedication to the development of his students and fighters, Greskiewicz maintains his goal to be a world champion and with over 60 fights under his belt, he is more than on the way to achieving his goal.

His advice to new fighters is all about action. “Talk less, do more. Fighters fight.” He eschews superficiality, like favorite gear brands and walk-out songs and urges fighters to hone all their focus into the work, into the fight. And above all, “Respect the art, be humble, and know that there is always someone better than you.”
