A Student of the Game
Prior to focusing his training efforts working with today’s top fighters, he got his first start in the Strength & Conditioning field at the University of Washington in their Intercollegiate Athletic Department being mentored by Coach Bill Gillespie, a 24x world record holder in the sport of Powerlifting. After the University of Washington he went on to work with the Seattle Seahawks where he worked under Coach Kent Johnston, a veteran of more than 17 seasons in the NFL that was instrumental in helping to develop legends such as Brett Favre and Reggie White. During this time, Joel was also able to study with renowned scientist Dr. Mel Siff, widely considered by many to be one of the true pioneers in the science of human performance.
After working with the Seattle Seahawks Joel opened his own training facility just outside of Seattle, WA and began working with athletes of all levels. In addition to his work with 6 MMA World Champions and more than 20 top pros, he has also worked with NFL players from more than 10 teams, world record holders from 4 different sports, and Olympic competitors from 3 different sports.
His passion for training also inspired him to help create the Think Big Foundation, a non-profit organization that provided a groundbreaking mentorship program called “Athletic Performance for Life” to local high school student-athletes in the community.
Recently, Joel launched the new website www.8WeeksOut.com to further the scientific understanding of the science of MMA Strength & Conditioning and help athletes from all over the world learn from his extensive experience and unique training methods.
