This week on the podcast we talk Olympic Weightlifting for the Garage Gym Athlete with Coach Joe!
More about Coach Joe:
Coach Joe is an accomplished coach and athlete with experience in many different areas of competitive athletics and functional fitness. While in college he played football and studied exercise science and sports coaching at Western Maryland College. As a physical education and health teacher Joe taught grades 6-12 and coached football, basketball, track and field, and baseball.
In 2010, Joe and his Wife Eliza moved to Hawaii and he began to pursue a career in strength and conditioning. Joe’s journey started as an intern with the University of Hawaii’s S&C department. After interning for two semesters Joe put his coaching ambitions on hold to raise his son Mason full-time. While his commitment to his family took precedence he just could not stay away from coaching and CrossFit helped him find peace as both a coach and father. At CrossFit 808 Joe was an athlete, coach, and in 2012 and 2013 he helped 808 win the NorCal Region. As a member of CrossFit 808’s games team Joe helped 808 secure a 21st ranking in the 2013 games.
As a “Crossfitter” Joe always gravitated toward Weightlifting. Most notably, qualifying for and competing at the 2014 and 2015 USAW National Championships. Currently his athletic and coaching ambitions focus on Weightlifting but he rarely shy’s away from an opportunity to coach and train.
Coach Joe has run a marathon, finished a triathlon, love’s to “play,” will take on any challenge but more than anything enjoys spending time with his Wife Eliza and their three children, Mason, Charli and Luci. As a coach Joe enjoys working with all age groups and goal orientated people. If you’re motivated by the pursuit of a goal, ready to implement squatting as part of your adventure, understand the difference between exercising and training, and willing to be coached Joe would love to help.
