About Josh Denenberg

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, and overall muscle strength.

Client success story

“Working with Josh completely transformed my body and my health. I suffer from Ulcerative Colitis, so my situation was unique when I started training with Josh two years ago. For those who aren’t familiar with UC, it is a chronic inflammatory bowel disease whose side effects can include severe pain, fatigue, and uncontrollable weight loss. When I first came to Josh, I was about 85 lbs and 22% body fat – basically skin and bone. Working with Josh, I got my weight up to 105 lbs and my body fat percentage down to 14% in less than a year! Josh listened to my concerns and created a workout routine that catered to my personal situation, and as a result I gained pure muscle and reclaimed my health.”

“Josh is an extremely knowledgeable trainer who excels at tailoring workouts and training plans based on his clients’ needs. I worked with him before, during and after my pregnancy. Throughout my pregnancy, he modified exercises to allow me to continue to work out while keeping safety foremost. He ensured that the exercises were reasonable and continually accommodated the specific physical changes I faced. He took a similar approach during my post-natal recovery. During that time, he struck an appropriate balance between working within my physical limitations and pushing me further. His thorough understanding of the relationships between various muscles groups and movements was key to creating a plan which allowed me to build much-needed strength while minimizing extreme tightness. I was then better able to deal with the physical challenges of the post-natal period and managing a growing baby. I progressed much more quickly than I could have ever done without him. Josh takes his work seriously, yet is still exceptionally personable, positive and very easy to work with.”

“When I started training with Josh, I had a single goal in mind: become a faster runner. Following a thorough assessment of my physical condition, Josh completely revamped my training routine to include stretching, core strength building and significant self-myofascial release exercises (foam-rolling). In addition, based on recent literature, Josh ascribed a highly polarized running training scheme that made my long runs much more frequent and enjoyable with shorter and infrequent high intensity runs. The combination resulted in significantly more enjoyable workouts. I was able to achieve a personal record in a race after six weeks of following Josh’s program. Thanks to Josh, not only am I a faster runner, but a happier, stronger, and more flexible one.”

“My trainer, Josh Denenberg, from Bodies In Action, has gone above and beyond. He helped me over my initial fitness obstacles by making me laugh and keeping me distracted. Josh listens and responds with appropriate training sessions. When I am sleep-deprived from working double shifts, he finds ways to help me get energized and burn calories. He helps me stretch tired muscles, and clearly puts a lot of thought into our sessions. Josh helped me foster a positive attitude. Thanks to that new mindset, I finally am working out regularly. Recently, my doctor told me my lipid profile was down enough to be considered normal. Also, I am losing weight. All that good news is due to Josh and the knowledge of trainers who work at Bodies In Action. I recommend BIA trainers to anyone with any kind of limitation they might have.”
