Joel’s CrossFit journey began in 2017 while living overseas, where he obtained his Level 1 Certificate. He fell in love with the community offered through CrossFit and realized that a stronger, healthier lifestyle was a just a side effect of spending time with his CrossFit family. Reflecting on time spent overseas with top-level coaches, Joel’s primary desire is to see his athletes succeed. Affectionately known as Coach Jo-Jo, you will often hear him say that it means more to him to see you succeed than himself…and he means it! A Social Worker by degree and a substance abuse counselor by trade, Joel believes in investing into the lives of the people around him. He is a man of faith that wants to create an environment equally inviting and challenging for both competitive athletes and newcomers alike.
