“He helped me get my “Mojo” back in life!! I saw what was possible in Josiah’s life and I saw pure proof that living a wholesome life in all aspects produces a much better life. He cut through all the confusion and made the process simple and straightforward. I can’t believe how well this worked! I would highly recommend Josiah if you are struggling with your physical health, your spiritual health and/or your emotional health. If you want to lose a quick 25-50 lbs only to gain it back after you lose it, find any fad diet, don't bother with Josiah. If you want a quick fix to your problems or issues, stop looking because they are all fads and never last. Josiah has helped me to change my eating habits that have produced a significant weight loss as well as maintaining it off for over a year. He’s helped me spiritually, coached me in the area of ministry, and impacted my community. So book a time to speak with him so he can help you to identify the areas in your life that need attention or serious attention and let him guide you into wellness that lasts. Josiah's deep convictions on life in general require deep desires for real long lasting change. If that is you, do not hesitate any longer and talk with Josiah now to plan your road to greater freedom and recovery!!! God bless you all!!!

For years my husband and I have seen our weight fluctuate up and down. As we got older it seemed harder to get the weight to stay off. We were determined to see results and knew that with Josiah walking us through the challenge it would be a reality.  Josiah was there to celebrate our victories and cheer us on when we felt like we had failed. Through live video chats, daily blogs and one on one conversations, we felt support each step of the way. We lost a total of 20.5 lbs. and just under 20 overall inches! In 28 days!!! It has been 9 weeks since the challenge ended, and we have continued to lose weight and stick with the lifestyle habits we learned with a current combined weight loss of 30lbs. We so appreciate the passion Josiah has for health and nutrition, and his love for helping people. We could not have done this without him!

With much appreciation,

I initially came to him because I wanted to get stronger, faster and have more endurance for Martial Arts. However, what I got from his training sessions was so much more - he truly focuses on the mind, body and spirit.  His clients are truly able to build whole better versions of themselves through his holistic training approach. Josiah is an incredible coach - always supportive, pushes to get you to maximize your potential, and makes it fun the entire time. Whether you are looking to make major changes in your life or are an elite athlete looking to fine tune your fitness level, Josiah will certainly help you succeed in your goals!

"I just turned 49 and I’ve been working at this for five years and I’m not done. I will never be done. But I am the strongest and healthiest I’ve ever been!! When I started my journey I just wanted to lose a little weight and tone up so I could feel more confident. I have done that and so much more. Since I started I have lost 15 pounds, went down 2 clothing sizes, gained muscle and lost just over 13 inches on my body. Josiah is full of energy, motivating and supportive. He not only provides challenging workouts but also nutritional and personal guidance and support. I am privileged to have him as a trainer and coach."

“I’m the healthiest iv been my whole life, Spiritually and physically! In fact, I’m in better shape than when I was 30. I’m 61 years old now. Training with Josiah has affected my whole life for the better. I used to have to go to the chiropractor twice a week and continually was out of work due to being bed ridden from throwing out my back. Since working with Josiah I haven’t thrown out my back...it’s almost unbelievable"
