Harrel’s favorite aspect of personal training is “how I get to interact with other people. Helping them learn more about themselves and the strength they have inside them.”
Harrel has long been passionate about physical fitness. He has competed in Baseball, Football, Basketball, Tennis, and Track & Field. You can still find him playing basketball most Saturday mornings and he has been competing in Flag Football tournaments with the same team for over 15 years. Harrel also regularly competes in Kettlebell Sport events and has won multiple awards lifting the 32kg kettlebell in the Men’s 85kg bodyweight division. Such an admirable commitment to physical health is actually grounded in a promise to others. Since Harrel was young, maybe around 5 or 6 years old, he decided to begin working for his ‘future family.’ Harrel’s dedication to his own health and fitness is a dedication to the family he has now, as well as the family he hopes to have (no kids yet).
His active lifestyle is further complemented by a background in personal training, one that Carman has continued to expand over the last ten years. He has completed certifications in NASM, Functional Range Conditioning, Onnit Battle Ropes and Steel Clubs, Orange Kettlebell Club, SCUBA, and CPR.

Joshua loves teaching busy professionals how to move from stressful, unhealthy lifestyles to endless energy, and amazing health. He believes everyone deserves to live a happy, healthy, pain free lifestyle that allows them to be more, do more and create more for themselves, their families and the world.
Having been a successful restaurateur for the first decade of his professional life, Joshua experienced the effects of long hours and constant stress. As his success grew he paid increasingly less attention to his body causing him to balloon up to 40lbs overweight, battle chronic fatigue, and develop major back and knee pain. Joshua found himself even struggling to enjoy his days off and be present with friends and family due to the aches, exhaustion and extra weight he was dealing with. Having played collegiate soccer Joshua longed for his body to have the strength and stamina he had prior to his career as a restaurateur.
One day he woke up with pain so intense he couldn’t get out of bed. At that moment he knew he had to change. Joshua made a commitment to reclaim his health and create a pain free lifestyle allowing him to feel and perform his best regardless of the stresses in his working environment.
His journey led him to discover modalities and practices that reversed his bodily pains, dropped the extra weight and gave him endless energy. Enjoying the transformation process so much he decided to become a trainer to mentor other busy professionals to make similar transformations. Joshua now coaches top CEOs, influencers and high performers around the world to live healthy, pain-free lifestyles and have all the energy they desire!
