Joshua began lifting weights and body building when he was 14 years old, and he earned his trainer’s certification from the International Sports Sciences Association (ISSA) in 2012.

He particularly enjoys training clients with range of motion problems, for whom Joshua achieved great results when he worked for Work Out World.

Joshua also ran an Introductory Boot Camp at True Fitness.

More recently, Joshua led the women and beginners cardiovascular class at Planet Fitness.

Because he wanted to train clients in a less restrictive and less corporate environment, Joshua came to Iron Bodies Gym in late June, 2014. At Iron Bodies Gym, Joshua is free to incorporate more free weight training in to his clients’ workouts, rather than relying too much on machines and a very limited dumbbell selection prevalent at chain fitness centers like Planet Fitness.

Joshua now also is able to meet his clients’ needs more effectively by offering post-workout massage therapy that helps not only to ease muscle cramping and pain, but also to reduce joint swelling, prevent and treat nerve damage, and speed recovery.

Joshua understands from both personal and professional experience that in order to achieve REAL and LASTING results, his clients must incorporate free weights in to their exercise regimens.
