Josh Eventoff

Level 1 CrossFit Trainer

Name:  Josh Eventoff

Certifications:  Crossfit Level 1 Trainer (CF-L1), Personal Trainer - International Sports Medicine Association (ISMA), United States Professional Tennis Association (USPTA), Professional Platform Tennis Association (PPTA)

Bio:  I grew up in Baltimore playing as many sports as possible where I eventually discovered tournament level tennis.  By High School I was a state and regional tennis champion, and began competing nationally and internationally. I also spent a lot of time in the gym strength & speed training, and doing road-work for cardio.

For my freshman and sophomore years in college, I earned an athletic scholarship to Towson University where I was awarded the East Coast Conference (ECC) and East Coast Atlantic Conference (ECAC) Championship at the number one singles and doubles positions. I was also recognized for having the highest winning percentage at the number one singles position in the history of the program.

For my junior and senior years of college I attended and graduated from the University of Maryland where I earned All ACC honors and played in the number one and two singles and doubles positions. While in college, and for a short time after, I competed part-time on the ATP Tour, but had athletic injuries (two broken ankles) and several bouts of tendonitis that sidelined me long enough to finish my degree and start coaching tennis and fitness to as many folks as possible.

I still coach elite juniors and compete professionally and am currently working on a top 10 national ranking which is another reason that I have embraced crossfit…everyday is GAMEDAY!
