Joshua Craddock holds certifications or have completed courses in all of the following:
"My interests include music, concerts, comics, nutrition, martial arts, boxing, running, cycling, weight lifting, yoga, Pilates, group exercise in general, skiing, snowboarding, golf, and most other athletics. I am not only enthusiastic about physical activity, but also the psychological and social components of wellness, as well. Promoting an active and healthy lifestyle is not only something that I do for a living, but more importantly, it is my passion and it is something I try to uphold each and every day. I say this not to come across as snobbish or exclusive, but rather with the exact opposite intention: I believe that physical and mental well-being is meant for EVERYONE, and it is my mission to do whatever I can to help individuals realize their personal best."
I am extremely excited and privileged to be serving the clientele here at Elite SFN, fulfilling any and all of your fitness and health needs.
