My passion for health and fitness started when I was just 16 years old. Exercising has not only helped me physically reach my goals but has improved my mental health. I am very driven to help my clients see their true potential and make exercising something they look forward to, not something they dread. I received my NASM CES certification in order to improve my understanding of the science behind exercise, how to correct form, and prevent injury. I am currently working toward a bachelors in Exercise Science at University of Illinois Springfield.

Hello! My name is Josh Gabriel and I am a personal trainer at FitClub West and I am happy to be here! I have been playing sports my whole life starting out in pre-k, and I still love to play sports like rec-league basketball and adult softball. I have played football, basketball, baseball, track and a little soccer and motocross as well. Lifting weights and working out have been a prominent aspect of my life since the 6th grade when I was training to be the best athlete I could be. Lifting continued to follow me into high school and even after high school. I have been a member of FitClub since April of 2016 and I have continued my love for fitness here. I am currently attending Lincoln Land Community College here in Springfield as a psychology major and business minor. I am here to help you get to where you want to be at in your life! As a trainer, I get to mix helping people with my love and passion, fitness and working out. It would be my pleasure to help you get started on your fitness goals.

I have been in the fitness industry for over five years starting with group fitness. Working with groups was my first love and what got me interested in learning more. Soon after, I gave personal training a try and now enjoy and love it too.

Over the years, I have learned much about different fitness styles and how different bodies adapt to fitness. I also received my degree in Exercise Science. 

I feel my biggest accomplishment from training is knowing I'm helping someone reach their goals and what their body can achieve. 

I love to learn and meet new people as a trainer.

I’ve been passionate about health and fitness since high school. I fell in love with bettering myself not only physically, but mentally and emotionally as well. I’m certified through the World Instructor Training School (WITS). I strive to help clients reach their fitness goals whether it be weight loss, stability training, bodybuilding or power-lifting. I’m there to make sure that my clients are not only pushing themselves hard enough, but also making sure they do their workouts with correct and safe form. I work with clients at both FitClub South and West and would welcome the opportunity to help you in your fitness journey.
