Meet a Member Monday

Meet coach Josh!  This guy as you already know is incredibly motivated, hard working, and full of passion for the community of ASF.  He is currently studying to become a Registered Dietitian, but he’s already a self taught student of nutrition and fitness.  He thirsts for information and seeks to better himself and those around him daily!  We are fortunate to call him Coach here at ASF!

1.Describe yourself in 3 words.

Dedicated / Evolving / Hungry (literally)

2.What is your spirit animal?

Well according to Harry Potter, my Patronus was a Raven… so we’ll go with that.  Not sure what it means though…

3.What do you do for a living?

Work in Nutrition Services at Vanderbilt University Medical Center; Coach/Train athletes at Always Strong!

4.What is your favorite CF workout? Why?

Named workout: None specifically.  I enjoy the variety and challenge each one presents.  Some go fast and some are a grind but all of them are effective!

Other workout: I enjoy the Memorial EOD 133 workout.  Being a former EOD tech and understanding the significance behind the workout helps me push that much harder; it’s also got a bunch of movements I like, done with a weight vest.

5.What is your favorite cheat meal and where would you go to get it?

Anything with donuts or pizza.  It’s pretty much most of what my Instagram feed consists of.  I like Whistlestop Donuts in Hopkinsville but would love to try some other places I’ve seen.  As for pizza, anywhere that serves a thin-crust, Hawaiian pizza is good with me.

6.What is it you are most passionate about?

Helping others achieve their personal goals as it pertains to fitness and nutrition; Empowering others to do things they never thought they could do

7.Dogs or Cats? Why?

Honestly both.  Dogs because of their energy and playfulness, getting to run outside and mess around.  Cats because of their calm nature; there’s something intensely relaxing about a cat snoozing in your lap.

8.As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?

Professional baseball player
