ABOUT THE OWNER

Joel Eshelman has been helping change lives through fitness for over a decade. Upon graduation, he has furthered his knowledge earning multiple certifications. Through his unique background, he brings a simple no-nonsense approach to his training style. His training philosophy is to keep things simple, effective and safe for his clients whether they are trying to lose weight or they are training for their upcoming season. Joel believes that applied knowledge through action and education is everything. This is why he continues to further his own education whenever possible, so he can deliver what he believes is the best for those who trust him in their journey.

No two clients are the same not just physically, but mentally and emotionally as well. This is why Joel has believed that it’s not just about a physical result, it’s about who you become throughout the journey as well. Joel’s passion for helping people shines through in everything he does in sessions and in business. He has helped thousands of people throughout his career and is always looking at how he can help even more.

Outside of the gym, Joel loves spending time with his new family and enjoys playing basketball, working on his own fitness goals, attending sporting events, trying the newest restaurant in town, concerts traveling and especially traveling to play golf. His goal is to play the top one hundred golf courses in the United States and then the world. Joel is also a serial entrepreneur and is always working on his next business venture.
