Joshua is the second youngest child of five boys. All of his brothers played collegiate football, so for him, growing up the standard was high! He attended Oregon State University on a football scholarship where he eventually got his bachelor’s degree in Sociology. After short stints in law enforcement and social work, he found his passion in strength and conditioning. Athletic preparedness through physical cognitive development drove Joshua to attain a master’s degree in Applied Sports Science at California University of Pennsylvania. With a focus on youth in resistance training and its correlations to sport performance, he intends to be a practitioner that uses science-based methods to increase motor skill and enhance performance for athletes.
