Josh’s favorite part about Victor CrossFit is the community. He loves how everyone works together to accomplish their goals on a daily basis. Josh has competed in several competitions in Rochester, Connecticut, Pennsylvania and Boston and enjoys the competitive nature of CrossFit. He loves helping members reach new PR’s and coaching new skills such as double unders, muscle ups, and handstand walks. Josh’s favorite workouts are “Diane” and “Murph”.
Josh and his wife, Donna, assumed ownership of Victor CrossFit in May of 2018. They are excited for the opportunity to make VCF a big part of the fantastic Victor Community as a whole. Josh is easy going and always willing to help with whatever he can. Donna and Josh are newly married and expecting their first child in February. They currently live in Farmington, just a few miles from the gym. Both work tirelessly to improve the community by assisting in charity events, donating to sports teams, lending out gym space to local businesses and running fundraisers. The mission to improve the community through health and wellness is one of the guiding principles for Josh and Donna. Josh is excited about the future of the Victor CrossFit community and help the gym reach new heights!
