Joseph Solomon II
Strength and Fitness have been a part of Joseph's life for the past 19yrs. His fitness career began in 1998 in high school, where he lettered in football, wrestling (district Champion, Regional Qualifier) & soccer. It continued when he earned a scholarship to play football at Liberty University (D1AA). There he had the opportunity to train under Bill Gillespie (Former strength coach of the University of Wa., Seattle Seahawks strength and conditioning coach & 700lb all-natural bench presser) and Dave Williams (former Strength and Conditioning coach at Texas A&M).
From Liberty University he took what he knew and completed the United States Navy Enlisted and Officer Boot Camp. Joseph is also a former USN Special Forces Navy Diver, where he had the opportunity to train with Navy Seals. He still continues to perfect his skills by being a command fitness leader as well as a Nationally Qualified NPC competitor.
His life was not always full of healthy living. There was a time where his weight reached close to 300 pounds. He was in and out of the hospital because of so many health issues pertaining to his heart and stomach. Eventually, through hard work and dedication, he lost all of the weight and regained his health!
