In his spare time, he loves to make (and drink) coffee, draw stick figures, and explore the world. One of his favorite quotes is: "In the beginner's mind there are many possibilities, in the expert's mind there are few." --Shunryu Suzuki
"I was having lower back issues which made classes difficult for me, it was recommended that I take a few Personal training sessions with Josh. I explained to Josh my situation and that I wanted to strengthen my lower back to help with everyday life. Josh came back with strengthening exercises and explained each exercise and what it was helping me. He didn’t force me to continue something if it was hurting but he would change up the exercise.
He helped me focus on my movements with each exercise as well. Each week he added new exercises to help. Josh listens and guides your sessions to your needs, he also makes the sessions fun. I would recommend Josh for personal training session (his classes are fun as well)."
"I first started at Stouffville's Fight Fit in the fall of 2015 thanks to a reference from two friends who were already attending and knew it would be something I'd love. I haven't stopped since and I have all the amazing coaches to thank for that, but one in particular, coach Josh.
I attend 4 evening kickboxing classes a week (on average) among other classes and always look forward to Josh's the most.
Josh is truly talented in both the martial arts and coaching and it shows in each and every class. He teaches and demonstrates all moves with patience and skill to all individuals. His ability to help guide any individual regardless of their level is obvious and greatly appreciated. I personally enjoy being pushed past my limits and critiqued and coach Josh comes through every time. Nothing makes me happier than waking up in good pain the next day. THAT to me is success. THAT is what keeps me going and wanting more.
I have and continue to tell people about this place I call my second home. I talk about how welcoming it is for anyone wanting to keep or get into shape, and I talk about the amazing coaches. As long as coaches like Josh are there, my second home it will be."

"I have been a Fight Fit member for over 2 years. My motivation for starting a consistent workout routine is similar to most; more energy, manage my stress level (mommy of 3), better health, weight loss….we all know the advantages of being active. What I love about the journey down a healthy road is how quickly it becomes an addiction; a way of life of which the benefits spill over into so many other areas….making you a better version of YOU!
ightFit has offered me the opportunity to push what I thought I could physically do. It’s an environment rooted in support and positivity, a true family of where some of my most precious friendships began.
Though all of the FF coaches are fantastic, I make it a point every Wednesday night to attend Josh Wang’s Stouffville class. Josh’s classes NEVER disappoint. It’s an hour of kooky fun all the while continually perfecting form, working muscles, burning calories and pushing limits… I mean where else can you fly through the air and superhero slam!!!! Ka-Pow!!! I love how Josh goes back to the basics, where we really focus on pivoting and turning the right way to truly execute a combination to the full potential. There’s always something new, an unexpected twist, whether it’s a killer ab finisher or maybe a spinning kick burnout?
A FF beginner or a more seasoned member Josh easily tailors the class and makes it work for everyone, all the while delivering a KILLER WORKOUT! He takes the time to properly stretch at the end of each class (as much as I hate to do it), after working through one of Josh’s stretches I feel fantastic. During 2016 I set out to push my fitness limits and signed up for a few long distance runs, with one being the Scotia Bank half marathon in October. Throughout the training leading up to the runs, Josh offered advice for stretching, nutrition and recovery of those running muscles….thanks Josh for sharing your knowledge ☺
Josh consistently pursues and perfects his skill as an athlete. This spark and love of fitness spills over into his classes, where you have no choice but to be motivated to “PUSH”. Watching Josh execute a combination just naturally makes you work harder…..working towards a goal to make it look as “EASY” as he does (I know, I know, but a girl can dream… ;-))
I love my “hump day” Wednesday at 6:30. As my 9 year old daughter Elayna would say “Mom is Josh teaching tonight, cause if he is I’m coming to FF, his classes are so much FUN”.
Thanks Josh for all you do."
