Josh tried CrossFit for the first time in graduate school when a friend invited him to work out. It was a total change from the typical gym routine he was accustomed to. He loved the competition and variety that CrossFit offers and he's been hooked ever since. CrossFit changed not only his body, but also his
mindset and approach to life.

As a physical therapist, Josh uses a unique approach to coaching which incorporates all areas of his experience and education. Josh's ultimate goal is
to help people reach their potential and live a life that is full and complete through fitness.
