Josh Bridges was an extremely competitive youth who excelled at sports, so it was no surprise that after his collegiate wrestling days that he would be drawn to CrossFit.
CrossFit’s extremely rigorous Workouts of the Day (WODs), combined with its inherent competitive aspects resulted in Josh getting in the best physical shape of his life.
In 2007 he sought out the ultimate challenge of physical and mental toughness—the Navy SEAL program and out of 320 enlistees, was one of the 37 who completed the training.
During his enlistment in the Navy, he kept up with his CrossFit conditioning and shocked the CrossFit world by placing 2nd overall in his debut in the 2011 CrossFit Games. He missed the 2012 CrossFit Games when he dislocated his knee and tore his PCL MCL and meniscus, but bounced back with brilliance, finishing 7th in 2013 and 4th in 2014.
