Josh Jarmin, 34, owns a gym in West Midtown today, but he moved to Atlanta from the Washington, D.C., area to be a teacher.
A member of the AJT’s 2017 40 Under 40, he joined the Marine Corps as a reservist and got into personal training on the side, and he eventually decided to forgo teaching and make fitness his career.
While Josh can often be found in the gym — he trains clients by appointment only — he also indulges in anything deep fried or involving Will Ferrell.
Personal trainer Josh Jarmin has put in time as a teacher and a Marine.
From teacher in training to personal trainer to owner of Blueprint Fitness, we think Josh is Such a Catch, so let him tell you a little bit about himself.
1. What are you looking for in a partner? I’d like to meet someone who loves fitness and a healthy lifestyle as much as I do (with the occasional “treat” meal) and loves all things Will Ferrell. These two pretty much cover everything.
2. What do you think or have been told are your best qualities? Sense of humor. Many people say that, but every day I have to entertain hundreds of people, and I love it! If I can’t make you laugh, then you have no soul.
3. How do you spend your spare time? Recently, I’ve become an avid hiker. I’m trying to explore much of the Southeast. Aside from that, I have a rule where I do something new every week. I try to do something big like mountaineering or something small like a new comedy club.
4. What is your guilty pleasure? When it comes to food, anything deep fried. For activities, Johnny’s Hideaway. Seriously, you can go there alone and come out with a thousand friends. Plus, I like the music. No judging!
5. What are some things that are most important in your life? Why are they valuable to you? Currently, growing my business and being happy no matter what occurs (none of us are getting out of this life alive) are most important. In the future, having a family is most important. I’ve known all my life I wanted to be a dad, and I can’t wait to have a bunch of mini-mes.
