November 8, 2017 Crossfit North Marin

Joe W.

Joe was born and raised in Novato, attended Marin Catholic and was a competitive athlete playing football and baseball. Joe went on to college and attended The University of Oregon; returned home and got his Masters/Teaching Credential from Sonoma State University and began his journey as a lifelong educator.

As years went by, Joe’s earlier competitive drive dwindled. CrossFit brought it back. Joe had no idea how much he missed competition. He began recording his WOD times and lifts. Joe wanted to beat the person next to him…he wanted to beat himself. As time passed, Joe became more and more passionate about CrossFit, and in 2012 decided to get CrossFit Level 1 Certified so he could share his passion for CrossFit with others.

“Coaching has made me a better CrossFitter and continues to drive my passion for helping others reach their potential and improve their technique. I get so fired up to watch people get after it and push themselves past their comfort zone. The community aspect of CrossFit, along with the healthy lifestyle, has been amazing for me and my family.”

When Joe’s not CrossFitting he loves to pursue his other passions, which include: surfing, skateboarding, mountain biking, running, swimming, wakeboarding, and playing guitar. Most importantly, he loves hanging with my family: wife, Jordan (who also coaches CrossFit) his daughter, Rowan, and his son, Asher.
