Josh had many interests and hobbies throughout his life, but one passion that stayed with him the whole way through was personal fitness. Josh loved lifting weights and working out in any way he could no matter if it was pumping iron in a gym or biking 50 miles up and down the boardwalk. Josh was so dedicated to his fitness he even competed in multiple physique competitions and worked with many others to help them with their training and nutrition regiments. Josh loved being outside, especially during the winter months when he could go snowboarding and enjoyed travelling to different mountains from the tri-state area to Colorado. Josh will be missed by all that knew him and will always be remembered for his caring personality and soft smile that could light up a room.
