COACH JOE

Want to train with someone who won't listen to any excuses? Then say hello to Joe Flynn.

Having grown up in the Sunshine State, Joe competed in all types of water sports. He also found time to wrestle and play soccer and football, but only when he wasn't surfing or diving. Looking for more than just the normal routine, Joe decided to join the Navy. Expecting, and eagerly anticipating the challenges his new career would bring; he would not be disappointed.

Wanting to contribute in the most beneficial manner, Joe chose to become a Hospital Corpsman. Following his training as a combat medic, Joe was assigned to a Marine detachment and served during the war times.

By the completion of his service, Joe had become very interested in power lifting and kickboxing. He continued his physical conditioning with Muay Thai, trail running, and an interest in the new and exciting training called CrossFit. Joe has become proficient in all kettlebell movements and continues to master the art of Olympic Lifts. Encouraged by his own success, Joe Flynn believes and tries to impart on all his clients, "a no nonsense approach to fitness yields the best results."
