JOSH

Founder

If there was one thing to get Josh out of bed each day it would be inspiring people to live more exciting lives through movement and adventure. He attended Utica College and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Law and then entered into the insurance industry. At the age of 24 he quickly realized the cubicle life was not for him and started planning a new career around his true passion, movement. After a short period of time personal training clients for free in the basement of a YMCA he grew his following.Eventually Josh gained the courage to quit the 9-5 lifestyle and coach full time. He built a small 900 square foot facility in Upstate NY and coincidentally called it Garage Gym. For the next 7 years him and his team coached hundreds of clients there and grew an amazing community. As the vision and mission of the brand grew, the name later evolved to Co-Movement. 

 

Josh lives the brand mantra Move and Live Courageously, and is continually inspired by the risk takers, and unconventional individuals who value health, movement, and adventure.
