How do you want to be remembered?
I personally just want to be happy honestly. When it comes to the people I train or work with I want them to remember that I was professional, helpful, and somehow someway made a positive difference in their life.
Do you have any nicknames and why?
In elementary school they called me ‘MonkeyMan’ because I was always climbing things. Little did they know I’d become a personal trainer! Other than that I go by Joe or Jose depending – (PS: I’m fluent in Spanish)!
If you could go anywhere in the world on vacation, where would it be and who would it be with?
I would love to visit Australia and New Zealand, it would be really amazing to make that happen somehow. I’d take my wonderful girlfriend obviously – who incidentally wants to go there too!!
What do you do in your free time?
In my free time I am an avid reader and video game player. I love a good story so I tend to get engrossed in well made games and books!
What word describes you best?
Driven. I know what I want and I know how to get there, and I’ll do what needs to be done to achieve my goals.
