Member Services Director


Joseph is a recent graduate of the College of William & Mary, where he studied theater. As an actor and model, he has enjoyed being able to train for roles and undergo various levels of physical transformation. He lives a very active lifestyle and enjoys hiking, running, and (oddly enough) unicycling. When he’s not lifting weights, he can often be found curled up on the couch reading the latest Stephen King novel or playing board games with friends.

Joseph has a background in marketing and business management and is excited about his new role as Manager at CrossFit Stimulus. He knows very well the struggle that people have in motivating themselves to be consistent at the gym. “It can be challenging to find a gym that makes you feel welcome, where you can really get the one-on-one help that you need and deserve. That’s what’s so impressive about the CrossFit community”, says Joseph.

Joseph looks forward to not just making your hour with us the best hour of your day, but also in helping you dive deep into your goals with an action plan to make them happen.


1. What’s something I would never guess about you?
“I’m a huge nerd. Like, full on D&D every other Saturday kind of guy. And I love unicycling!”

2. Would you rather go 30 days without your phone or your entire life without dessert?
“This is a no-brainer; dessert all the way. Gotta have me some Oreos!”

3. If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be?
“Ooo, this is tricky. Believe it or not, I’m gonna go with mango. It’s hands down the best fruit. ”

4. How much would someone have to pay you to eat a live spider?
“How hairy is the spider? The bigger and hairier the more it’s gonna cost.”

5. If you joined the circus, what would your circus act be?
“As a teenager I discovered, mysteriously somehow, that I can unicycle. Can I juggle? No, only unicycle. But please don’t tell anyone, it’s like SUPER embarrassing.”
