About Josh

Hi, I am Joshua Russell, born and raised in Jackson, Mississippi! At the end of March, I relocated to the DMV area for a fresh start and business endeavors. Moving over 900 miles from a place I will forever call home has been one of the best decisions I have made thus far. With 3 plus years of training, training and health are my passion.

Why I Love Personal Training

My purpose for dedicating my life to fitness is because health is wealth. You must take care of what takes care of you. My training mantra for myself is I take training head-on, I bring motivation, and I am a leader and a teacher. I train my clients on what is fitting for their needs and educate my clients to learn the proper movements as a first step. The goal is to become 5% better every day mentally and physically.

Did Someone Say ‘Football’?

I have had the privilege of playing football up to the college level. In the midst of my college football years, I won a Junior College championship at Copiah Lincoln Community College. Once I completed my two years there, I transferred to Jackson State University where I studied biology.

I’m a Dog Lover Too!

I have two awesome pets Bruno, XL American Bully, and Joseline, a Schnauzer mix. I like to go hiking, watch movies, and read every now and then. I love home-felt cookouts and a good party occasionally. Whenever possible, I like to get tattoos.

Famous Last Words:

My favorite life quote is:

“We live by this, we die. We don’t surrender, we don’t retreat. Every man must search his own soul.”
