Raised on a farm in the Midwest, Joe developed an understanding for hard work and an appreciation for doing things the “right” way. This has meant an unrelenting desire to not only study the human body and how to change it, but really to understand people.


Joe has taken his passion for teaching to the fitness industry through his work with clients of all ages and as an Educator/Co-Owner of the Axiom Fitness Academy. He continues to mentor new trainers in the South Florida community and is regular speaker with college Exercise Science classes at Florida Atlantic University. 


When Joe isn’t working with other trainers and community events or at G+O2 Fitness changing lives, you can find him swinging kettlebells on the beach and finding new ways to include peanut butter in every meal.  

As a Personal Trainer in the industry since 2006 Joe has been fortunate enough to train with clientele ranging from collegiate athletes, CEO’s, mothers, and beyond. Along with the certifications below, Joe also has his Masters in Exercise Physiology. In 2014 Joe left his full time position as the Fitness Director of Florida Atlantic University to open Gravity + Oxygen Fitness with his partner, Paul Christopher, in Boca Raton, FL.
