• Josh Denenberg
    Personal Trainer , Health Coach , Running Coach
    As a kid, Josh found himself overweight, pre-diabetic, and hypertensive. He immediately realized that this weight would keep him from playing the sports he loves and more importantly, increasing the risk of developing major health issues. Josh not only embarked on a successful weight loss story, he became inspired and helped influence those who needed that extra motivation or proper direction to reach their ultimate goals.

    With over eight years of experience working in a hospital and physical therapy based fitness & wellness club, he learned and became familiar with functional movement, rehabilitation of injuries, special populations, and many more. He is a Corrective Exercise Specialist as well as a Performance Enhancement Specialist through the National Academy of Sports Medicine. Josh�s fitness sessions focus on stabilizing the core, increasing joint mobility, stability, flexibility, cardiovascular endurance, overall muscle strength, and more!

    • Confident in him and the process

      I joined Robert Wood Johnson Health & Wellness looking to get myself in better physical and mental shape. I knew how to work out, as I was an athlete my entire life, spending frequent time in the weight room. It had been a couple of years since I lifted weights following a severe lower back injury I suffered. RWJ's signup program offered new members some complimentary training sessions. Naturally, I followed up and took advantage of these training sessions, especially sine I had been out of the gym for a good period of time. Josh was the trainer assigned to me, and from the first moment I met him and introduced myself, I felt confident in him and the process. The first thing I noticed was that he was a young guy like me. Some people may immediately correlate a young person with inexperience, but I personally liked the fact that he was more relatable since he was my age. As soon as I began speaking with him about my history and the goals I wanted to achieve moving forward, it was apparent to me that knowledge was definitely not an issue for Josh. Josh designed a program for me that him and I would execute a few times a week. During our first session, Josh pushed me to see what level of fitness I was at and how motivated I was. I think him and I quickly learned that my motivation was not in question, but my fitness level was. Based on this information, Josh conveniently adjusted our program to something more appropriate. As each session went on, Josh motivated me and pushed me harder and harder. People that need to lose weight need to be pushed, just pushing ourselves to go to the gym can be a feat on its own. Once we're there, we sometimes need that inspirational figure to motivate us as we climb our mountain of attaining fitness success. Josh was that guy for me. He was very supportive and understanding but also very motivating. He wouldn't let me quit, but he would understand my limits. If there was something I couldn't do, Josh would adjust and find something to take its place. He never let me quit, even though sometimes I wanted to, and he always told me I could do it. One of my favorite parts of working with Josh was the knowledge he dropped on me as we worked out. Not only would he tell me what he wanted me to do and show me how to properly do it, he explained to me why I was doing it and how it was benefiting me. When I trained with Josh I didn't just feel like a client of his, I felt a more personal approach. He shared stories and struggles of his own as a way to motivate me. We discussed our personal lives which always made our sessions feel like two friends hanging out instead of a business interaction. It made showing up to the training sessions much more enjoyable. Josh was also extremely accommodating. If my job was prohibiting me from making a session, Josh would always do his best to adjust his own schedule to accommodate me. There were even times he offered to come in on his days off to train only me. Things like this aren't common, especially in younger people. It shows that Josh cares about his clients and the goals they want to accomplish. On a non-training day if I wasn't at the gym, Josh would always send me a text to see how I was doing and whether or not I was coming to work out. There were times I wasn't planning on going to the gym because I talked myself out of it, but receiving that text from Josh reminded me of the dedication I needed in order to succeed. I highly recommend Josh for anyone looking to achieve any type of fitness goals. His knowledge his vast and he has experience in many different types of weight lifting and weight loss. Though my time with Josh was cut short due to a change in jobs on my end, I was experiencing success, but more importantly, I was able to find that enjoyment of working out that resonated deep inside me. Josh helped me bring that out after it was buried for several years. To this day, I continue to work out and I credit a lot of my motivation to Josh.
