About Joe Powers
Joe Powers is a private fitness consultant. His expertise is helping people change their mind, body and spirit through physical and mental conditioning. Believing that we all have an inner athlete just waiting to shine, he trains all his clients like they are an elite athlete. Each workout is efficient, challenging and different so the mind is always engaged and the body is moving in every direction possible. The main tools used are the human mind and body, TRXs, resistance bands, dumbbells, kettle bells, medicine balls, BOSU and physioballs, jump boxes and good ol’ gravity. He has a unique ability to balance a positive yet intense environment where people achieve things with their bodies that their minds never thought possible. Joe eliminates the mental barriers we’ve all placed on ourselves by facilitating action and celebrating achievement.
As we become adults we forget our capacity to ‘play’ and play hard. I consider workouts with clients ‘playtime.’ We run, jump, push, pull, twist, punch, kick, balance, sweat, grunt, sometimes swear, and always laugh and smile…A LOT. I love the creative process of developing programs that include functional training, integrative performance training, Mixed Martial Arts training, Yoga, Pilates and outdoor boot camps. The people I get to work with love the way they feel and the way they look. As they should! What better way to spend an hour a day than improving the inner and outer you!
As a football and baseball player in college, Joe was blessed to have survived a terminal disease called Aplastic Anemia and has been in remission for 20 years. In his former life he served as an Associate Athletic Director at Fairfield University and later traveled extensively providing diversity management training for IBM and the US Postal Service. Most recently, he fulfilled his dream of owning a private training studio in Los Angeles. He currently resides in Nashville, TN providing his exclusive fitness services to a wide array of private clients.
I’ve only been in Nashville for a relatively short time, but I have been embraced by this community like no other place I’ve ever lived. I was taught not to get too personal with clients but learned very early that this sentiment is a crock of poo. How else can one truly connect with another to facilitate change without a personal relationship – that’s loco?! I am fortunate to have a diverse clientele of business professionals, moms and dads, student athletes, entertainers and other fitness professionals whom I love dearly. My clients in L.A. and here in Nashville are some of my closest friends. Without their support and their successes, I would not be as good or as passionate about what I get to do each day.
