My name is Joey. I have been a certified trainer since 2008. I’m happily married to Rachel, and we have 2 amazing little boys, Elek and Oliver. I love barbells, food (I make a mean burger) and horror movies!
When I first touched a barbell at age 12, I instantly fell in love with the process of progress. How strong could one get?
I grew up playing football, and in my 20s, competed in powerlifting, breaking the junior 20-23 APF bench press record in the raw drug tested division in 2009.
I did a lot of CrossFit, making it to the regional stage four times. 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016
Notably did some Olympic lifting, Spartan Races, and Triathlons all for the sake of learning the preparation and demands of these events. I wanted to know how to do it all!
When I began this journey as a trainer, I was instantly fascinated with how movements work for us as humans, and figuring out the problems when it came to moving and feeling better. I couldn’t afford school, so I read and absorbed as much of the literature as I could and was lucky enough to learn from amazing and established people in the industry.
I believe I am one of the lucky ones to have found their calling in life at a young age, and I can’t wait to share that passion with people I am lucky enough to work with every single day.
