Coach Joe is super knowledgeable about the profession and you can tell that he is very dedicated to helping his clients achieve their fitness goals. I appreciate the fact that we have a great workout at our house and his intensity level as well as way of motivating is awesome. You won't go wrong with choosing him as a personal train. Highly recommended.

We have had the pleasure of working with Joe for a few months. Admittedly, I was a bit intimidated when I viewed his kickboxing images and heard his strong accent over the phone. However, upon meeting him, I was immediately at ease as I was greeted with a beautiful and friendly smile. I would also soon realize the gentleness of his soul as well as his genuine interest and approach at helping my son with his fitness goals. My son is 11 years old with cerebral palsy that affects all muscles in his limbs. Yet, Joe meets my son where he is in his physical journey absent any judgement. I hear the two of them laughing as they work out together, Joe cheering my son along the entire time. If Joe is able to meet my son where he is in his fitness journey, it doesn’t get any more complicated than that, so Joe can absolutely help you in your journey. Joe already holds a special place in my heart. He doesn’t judge my son on his disability, but comes each week with new research specific to him so as to continue to provide a custom approach to my son’s fitness. I also sneak in questions for myself, and Joe is always courteous in answering those too. I complimented my son the other day, at his progress and hard work with Mr. Joe (as he calls him), my son’s response, ‘I do it to make Mr. Joe happy.’ My 11 year old son’s own testimony to the genuine interest and care Joe puts into his sessions.

I have trained with Joe for 2 years and have achieved results and learned techniques that will always be part of my training routine . One time he designed an 8 week powerbuilding program (powerlifting x body building) with the purpose of teaching me powerlifting moves and increasing my strength. By the end of the 8 week program my deadlift and squat form was on point and I added a couple of plates to the bar! Joe is very friendly and very knowledgeable when it comes to fitness and sports nutrition. His sessions are designed for purpose and he incorporates different styles from his background in martial arts, strong man, and body building. He is truly passionate about fitness and about helping others along their fitness journey. I highly recommend Joe if your someone who is at any stage of your fitness journey,he will help you scale up. As for the money worth, I think his sessions are worth every $, you will not only get trained across disciples you will also get a nutritionist and a friend who motivates you to succeed.

I'm glad I had the opportunity to train with Joe. He is very knowledgeable not only about the detailed workout but also recommended a special diet to follow. 3 months later & I can already see the results clearly. Thanks Joe! 💪🏼
