Hello! My name is Joe Williams and I’m proud to call CrossFit Raw Steel my home! I was one of the gyms first members almost 5 years ago. My wife and I branched out and opened CrossFit Republic in May 2013 but have since returned back home to CFRS.
I am also the Head Movement Coach, Co-head CrossFit coach, and Assistant Weightlifting coach for Power and Grace Performance. In the last 3 years Power and Grace has had a number of athlete achievements that I have had the honor of coaching:
Additionally, I have coached athletes in a number of high level competitions and coached seminars across the country.
My passion for CrossFit and Weightlifting spawn from a never ending pursuit of knowledge and improvement. Physical performance combines measureable results, technique driven improvements, and a constant pursuit of progress that is second to none!
In the daytime I am a Senior Instructor in the Biomedical Sciences Department at Missouri State University teaching courses in Genetics, Human Biology, and Molecular Biology. I am married to my amazing wife, Deena and Dad to our daughter Penelope.
