Joe is a family man and currently works at a high-level charter school. With his wife Holly (who is also an athlete at Crossfit Catch), they also own a local salon and a digital business.
Joe has an undergraduate degree in Movement Science/ Physical Education and a Master’s degree in Special Education. Joe has played competitive sports his entire life. In high school, he played soccer, track, swimming and lacrosse. In college, he played varsity soccer for Holyoke Community College and Westfield State College. He did have a stint on the practice team for the Springfield Legends a semi-professional indoor soccer team. After soccer, he continued to look for new challenges as he joined boxing and wrestling clubs, and helping area college teams during in season practice. After a serious injury, a change in jobs and passing of 2 very close family members – Joe found himself out of shape and unhealthy for the first time in his life. Joe rediscovered his passion for fitness and decided to pay it forward. He began to help the wrestling team at the school where he works. He then took over coaching the boys’ varsity soccer team for 3 years. Joe decided that his passion was to coach others to become healthy and stepped down from coaching high school sports.
About 5 years ago, Joe started his journey with TLS (Transition Life Style). He started to run weight loss classes and small fitness groups from his home. Joe saw tremendous results, decided he could further help his clients, and became a certified personal trainer and a TLS Coach.
During this time, Joe continued to increase his fitness and eventually asked to try some workouts at Crossfit Catch. Joe took to Crossfit well as it allowed him to be an athlete again. He decided to increase his time at Crossfit Catch. He really bought into the community, fell in love with workouts, and has since attained his Crossfit Level-1 Trainer certificate. He continues to look forward to helping others become the best version of themselves and continue his own fitness journey.
