Beginner kickboxing workout with Coach Joshua
Joshua is a 24 year old whose inspiration to become a coach in the fitness world began when he saw significant improvements in himself when he started being active. Seeing people’s attitudes and bodies transform through physical activity is one of the most satisfying parts of his career.
One word to describe him would be capable. He truly believes that he can do anything he sets his mind to do.
His favorite thing about the Yes.Fit app are the medals because it gives people concrete evidence of their accomplishments.
Fitness has played a huge role in his development from childhood to adulthood. When he was a kid, sports were what taught him the importance of structure, and his coaches helped him understand the importance of a role model.
Before he began playing sports, he had no drive. All he wanted to do was whatever was most comfortable. That attitude got him nowhere. He gives credit to sports and his coaches for his current understanding of fitness, drive, discipline, consistency and other key characteristics that make him an overall better person than what he was.
Combat training requires a lot of discipline and skill. It always pushed him out of his comfort zone. He started with karate and wrestling as a kid and began practicing taekwondo and kickboxing within the last 3 years. Each style helped him improve both physically and mentally through challenges. Applying all of the lessons he's learned from his coaches, instructors, and the arts themselves, made him realize that there is nothing he can't overcome.
