About Me

“Strength has a greater purpose…”

I believe that everyone should move well and be strong. I feel that my purpose is to give people the tools to feel more confident and energetic, by way of strength training.

I have been a personal trainer since 2017 and have my certification through The National Academy of Sports Medicine, this includes being a certified Corrective Exercise Specialist. I am a Level 1 kettlebell instructor with StrongFirst and a Level 1 instructor with Functional Movement Systems.

I live in Buxton with my wife Missy and two children Reagan (12) and Gage (10).

Workout Group

Josh at Strength of Purpose is a top notch personal trainer! He is friendly and knowledgeable. He takes the time to learn your strengths and weaknesses and scales the workouts to fit that. He knows where to push you and where to adapt a movement if it is too much for you. I have a shoulder injury that still bothers me 2 years later and Josh has helped me to strengthen it and it bothers me less often now...I have complete confidence that continued work with Josh will continue to help! I love that even though the training is in small groups, you still get that personalized training feel.

My son and I have just started month 2 with Josh at Strength of Purpose. Not only is it so convenient, right here in our community, Josh is so knowledgeable. Josh connects every time with my son, encourages us both, pushes us without ever going farther than your body can handle.
Josh is fun, we laugh a lot, we sweat and we certainly are getting our health on! Highly recommend Josh and Strength of Purpose! Call him, don’t wait. YOU DESERVE IT!
