    I found Josh through a recommendation from a coworker who praised his individualized and wholistic approach. My big goal is weight loss - I've already managed to lose a bunch on my own, but I've reached a point where I need expert help to keep making solid progress. I have only worked with Josh for a few weeks now, but already have seen great results! And more importantly, I've found a trainer who is not only knowledgeable and experienced, but also genuinely cares and is deeply committed to helping me become my best possible self. I'll gladly recommend Josh to anyone.

    All I can say is Josh knows his stuff. I have a background in exercise physiology and once was a certified PT and Idea member as well. There are so many fitness professionals to choose from, but Josh is really one that looks at the whole person and meets you where you are at. I had him work with my two girls ages 10 and 12 (one a gymnast the other a ballerina). I was looking for someone who was knowledgeable and good with kids. I knew my girls needed to hear and learn from someone other than mom. He quickly identified their imbalances and taught them exercises that would improve their strength and prevent injury. He is fun, easy to work with and very professional. He has amazing energy and has a positive, gentle attitude that is infectious. Josh is a rare find in that not only can he address lifestyle changes but he is capable of working with complex issues such as muscle imbalances, sport specific training, injury prevention, and is amazing at understanding the importance of core training in a functional way. (not just a bunch of crunches)

    My 12 year old son is active and fit but wanted to increase his athletic ability ... specifically, to run faster. Josh was great with him! His method for balancing the body systems and pinpointing specific goals was extremely efficient. My son grew his body strength over 400% in only 3 months and increased his flexibility, endurance and speed. His soccer coach praised the change in his playing ability. Just a few weeks into the program, my son saw the change in his biceps and was so excited, his self-confidence soared. Best of all, Josh made everything fun. My son was always excited when a session was coming up. I highly recommend Josh for any age client. His knowledge and manner will support you in reaching your goals in the safest and most effective way possible. ... Marjorie H.

    I thought I knew a lot about fitness and diet before I met Josh. I knew how to lose weight, get cut where I wanted and point my energy to create more energy.

    And then I met Josh...

    Josh's passion for helping others transform their health and find balance is far greater than anyone else I've ever worked with ... or met. He has lived an interesting life and has taken over a decade worth of helping others and refined it help you succeed.

    I recommend Josh and Unification Point with the fullest level of commitment.

    I have to admit I was a bit apprehensive in hiring a "personal trainer" but Josh has proven to be so much more. I consider him to be a life/wellness coach. I was in good shape when I started with Josh but wanted more definition and toning to my body. Josh kicked my butt and actually gave me my first bikini booty which I thought would never be possible. His approach is detailed, precise and he knows more about the muscular anatomy than anyone should but that is what makes him excel at doing what he does. Bar method and yoga never gave me these results! Oh and did I mention he has made cellulite DISAPPEAR!!!
