Joe began his fitness journey after an almost 10 year career in public safety here in Sonoma County. When he suffered a career-ending injury he realized that he needed to make his health and fitness a priority if he wanted to make a full recovery. His first goals were weight loss and enhancing overall health. While achieving his goals and losing 50 pounds, he discovered his passion for fitness! Now he wants to share his knowledge and experience to help others achieve their goals.
Joe knows what it’s like to be overweight, and how that affects quality of life. He wants to help you discover the benefits of training that have helped him become the person he is today—strong, capable and compassionately excited to help you. Life is hectic and we all have busy schedules. Joe will show you that fitness can be manageable and enjoyable, with real and attainable results.
