Joe Williams


Hello! My name is Joe Williams and Iā€™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:

  • Over 25 CrossFit Regional qualifications
  • 2 CrossFit Games qualifiers (Kristi Eramo ā€“ 8th fittest woman in the world 2016, Logan Collins, 27th fittest man in the world 2016)
  • USA Weightlifting American Open ā€“ Over 15 qualifications
  • USA Weightlifting Nationals ā€“ Over 15 qualifications

  • 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!

    Certifications include:
  • CrossFit Level 1
  • CrossFit Level 2
  • USA Weightlifting Level 1

  • 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.
