“Most of what you encounter when you meet a man is a facade, an elaborate fig leaf, a brilliant disguise.” – John Eldridge, Wild at Heart.
Josh Bridges is not a façade, nor a brilliant disguise, but he may have one of the most elaborate stories on his journey to being physically and mentally prepared for any task. Arguably one of the most dedicated and forthcoming people you will ever meet, he displays an innate ability to tackle a task at hand with commanding energy and stamina.
Although Josh is commended for these attributes, he has not always walked the straight and narrow path. After early success in his wrestling career, it was during his college years that he lost sight of who he was and what motivated him. It was during these dark times where Josh was introduced to the Navy SEALs and the catalyst that would get him fit enough to join their ranks, CrossFit.
Once Josh had envisioned becoming a SEAL there was absolutely no turning back. Training harder than ever before, he overcame numerous hurdles to earn his trident and walk amongst the planet’s elite. During his time in the SEALs Josh still trained harder than ever to accomplish another lofty goal of competing in the CrossFit Games. Balancing the grind of serving his country, he managed to do what he set out to and took 2nd place in the 2011 CrossFit Games, thus catapulting his name into the limelight in the world of competitive fitness. Known for his fiery antics and passionate roars of satisfaction when crossing the finish line after a job well done, he has gone on to compete at the CrossFit Games six times, winning multiple events and regionals along the way.
Josh’s approach to mental preparation has long been sought after and he could not be more excited to help anyone from all walks of life to become the best version of themselves.
