Coach Update: Joseph Gonrowski

Originally from Big Lake, Minnesota, Joe Gonrowski is fully engulfed in QC, Palmer and OC3! He first earned his master’s in Exercise Physiology from the College of St. Scholastica in Duluth before heading south. This future Doctor of Chiropractic is L1 CrossFit certified, a certified strength and conditioning specialist (CSCS) AND Precision Nutrition L1 certified. 😲 His passion is evident.

“All I’ve ever wanted in a job is to help people. I believe in the methodology and really enjoy helping folks take what they do in the gym to improve their lives out of it,” said Coach Joe G. 

When he’s not in the gym, you can find him spending time with his wife, Kiersten, and two dogs, Ozzie and Theo, or studying. The school-OC3-home triad that our Palmer students know so well!

“I recently started at Palmer and look forward to my studies and time in the Quad Cities, especially at OC3!” he said.

And, of course we have to include a piece of Joe’s athletic past, but he certainly wasn’t limited to baseball, “I was involved in sports from a young age and grew up in an active family. As a kid played any sport I could and enjoyed outdoor activities like biking and swimming.” A dude after our owner hearts! Welcome to the OC3 family, officially!
