Meet Our Trainers
Hi, I’m Joe Hashey. When I was in college my dream was to play football. Nice plan, right? Well that dream was shattered during my sophomore season at Colgate University when I had to undergo two more knee surgeries. I was over weight and never received proper attention and coaching on exercise form. My body was beat up and ready to quit.
I dedicated the next 3 years to understanding fitness. I quickly lost 50 lbs (over about 3 months). When I left college with my Masters, I kept traveling the country to the best gyms and learning from their trainers. Armed with passion and now backed up by knowledge, I opened Synergy Athletics.
I believe each child should have the opportunity to a good coach and solid training methods. Soon we added our Lean X adult program and it was eye opening how many adults never had the opportunity to receive proper coaching as well. Ever since…it’s been an amazing ride!
