Training/Fitness Philosophy: 

Joel has an appreciation for the physiology of exercise and takes a more scientific approach to fitness. He is all about correct form and motivating those around him to push themselves. Joel takes his teachings from working with Physical therapist and Occupational therapists during undergrad and incorporates it to the exercises he implements.
