Hi, I am coach Josiah, I’m the coach for the Teens Of Teel Program. I absolutely love working with middle and high school children to help them recognize their inner strength, through proper mechanics and supportive coaching. I am a Certified Youth Strength Coach through NASM and use my experience to incorporate developmentally appropriate strength training for the teens I work with. I compete in powerlifting and currently hold 6 national records and have won powerlifting nationals. I am excited to be a part of the Imagine Academy team and all of the experiences that are sure to come!
