Hello, I am Josh, a Coachella Valley native, and a USAPL Certified Powerlifting Coach and a Westside Barbell Certified Coach.  From a very young age I became interested in weightlifting. This experience opened new doors for me and I developed a passion for getting stronger and the fitness industry.  Over the years I have traveled to client’s homes and now work out of my private studio in Rancho Mirage.  I am also on staff at The Reserve Club, an exclusive country club in Indian Wells.

I am always learning to better my craft through the ISSA, Westside Barbell, TRX professional education and many professional workshops.   I pass on this knowledge to my clients to help them to get stronger and lead a healthier lifestyle through proper exercise and sound nutritional habits.  I take great pride in helping my clients reach their goals.

My customized fitness programs have helped clients achieve their goals of increased strength, improved daily function and performance and injury prevention. I believe that getting stronger makes life easier and should have a functional crossover effect to daily activities.   

Personally, I have been married to my soulmate for 12 years and a proud father our 10-year-old son. I enjoy spending time with my family, reading books on Eastern philosophy, working out and weekend getaways.
