Joseph R. Tamayo
Joe is the owner and head trainer of CrossFit Force. He is a CrossFit Level 1 Certified Trainer, CrossFit Olympic Weightlifting Certified and CrossFit Endurance Certified. For most of his life he has practiced reality based mixed martial arts like Jeet Kune Do, Filipino Martial Arts or Filipino Kali and Progressive Fighting Systems. He found CrossFit while searching for alternative conditioning methods to keep up with his younger and bigger opponents. He learned that Crossfit’s program philosophy was similar to the program philosophy of mixed martial arts… where CrossFit delivers a fitness that is broad, general, and inclusive… where the specialty is not specializing… and that combat, survival, many sports, and everyday life reward this kind of fitness and punishes the specialist. When he saw this he knew he had to give it a try. After surviving through some of the workouts from the CrossFit Main Site he immediately knew that CrossFit was the ultimate program to take his fitness and conditioning, to not only the next level, but also to its highest potential level.
Joe has a wonderful family who is very active in sports and martial arts. They also happen to have an affinity for CrossFit. In addition to running CrossFit Force, he is an executive at a local start up medical device company. He holds a Bachelors of Science Degree and a Master’s of Science Degree in Biological Sciences with an emphasis in cellular and molecular biology and also biochemistry.
