Another inspirational member we have on board & so voted member of the quarter by many is the humble yet well put together Joshua Williams.
Joshua hails from the Manchester, England where he played field hockey for Wales across the UK & Europe at junior & age group level before broadening his sporting achievements to include rugby union, football, athletics & also studied physical education in his senior school years. At 18 Joshua developed an interest in strength training & joined his first gym, he has not looked back since, having always maintained a club membership wherever he lived.
At about the same age Joshua also found a passion for cooking & turned towards the artisan vocation of being a chef. Trained as a Chef Joshua & his partner moved to Australia in February 2014 for a better, brighter, more relaxed lifestyle that these shores offer. Joshua worked in a few restaurants around Perth & recently moved over to become a chef de partie at Voyage Kitchen, a well-known & much liked restaurant in Sorrento. Joshua knows the significance of dietary intake from his professional time in the kitchen & so has taken his own nutrition far more seriously in the last 2 years or so. Joshua combines all the right food types & emphasizes the intake of his core ingredients while limiting the sweet & fattening morsels we all spoil ourselves with from time to time.
Being a Chef keeps Joshua pretty committed to his job but he always finds the time to put in at least 4 serious workouts a week on the strength & conditioning of his well-honed physique. Joshua says he concentrates on correct technique & full range of motion rather than increased resistance, in other words form overrides weight, which is as it should be & the results prove his approach works & works well. Joshua combines his indoor strength work with West Coast highway runs in the early mornings before the sun rises & the day gets too hot.
Any questions for the affable Joshua, just ask him when you see him in & around the gym most week days. Congratulations Joshua & keep up the great exercise routine.
