About Us

My name is Joel and my story is probably a lot like most peoples. I was always active growing up and even into my 30’s, then something happened. For me, it was tearing my meniscus and MCL after my first triathlon sprint. Fast forward 23 months, 2 surgeries and 25 pounds and my life had completely changed. I no longer could do the things I once enjoyed. I knew I had to make a change, so I found the best personal training certification out there, NASM and I never looked back, but that was not enough. I wanted to help others train correctly so they would not get hurt. So I studied corrective exercise to help prevent injuries and make the body stronger. No one should have to stop doing the things they love.

Life Athletics, founded in 2016, believes that each of us has an athlete within and that life is our sport. The focus is on training to be strong and fit for daily life, not just for the gym, which is essential, especially as we grow older and become less active. Initially, as a personal trainer, my aspiration was to exclusively work with high school and college athletes. However, as I delved deeper into the subject, I realized that most people’s fitness programs lacked the key elements that make an athlete strong, flexible, lean, and resistant to injury. To bridge this gap, I started incorporating Olympic lifts, jumps, and sports-based training into my sessions with seniors, and the results were remarkable. This approach laid the foundation for the creation of Life Athletics.

We are so happy to have found Life Athletics. Our daughter is a high school athlete and wanted to supplement her regular program with a professional trainer to focus on strength, conditioning and agility.

9 months later, she’s thrilled with her results. Her body is transforming right before our eyes; shedding unnecessary weight, gaining inches where desired, and strengthening her whole body beyond just the muscle groups used in her sport.
She’s added 11” and counting to her vertical jump and gained more confidence on and off the court.

Joel creates a fun environment to work out in. From asking Alexa to play your favorite music, to creating thoughtful workouts to maximize results, I don’t think she’s had the same workout twice. Individual performance and results are posted throughout the gym which allows you to track your gains and see what else is possible.

Beyond the gym, Joel is dedicated to his client’s growth and development. Sharing links to valuable content that’s specific to your development, attending games to evaluate performance and even attending primary practices to ensure consistency is maintained across the board.

Most importantly; our daughter looks forward to working out and challenging herself to continuously improve.

Thank you, Joel!
