Former Firefighter SSgt.Joshua Hopkins.
I joined the military at 18 leaving my small Mississippi town behind. I served from 2004-2010. I also served in operation Iraqi freedom. The Military helped me become the person I am today. It set me up to eventually what I do for a living now. I worked for the UFC Gym corporation for 3 years which eventually led me to branching off and starting joshhopkinsfitness LLC.
Also during this time my social media was climbing which led me to my current following of over 500k instagram followers. Helping people lose weight and feel better about themselves was always my number one passion in life. My social media platforms let me do that the quickest way possible. Also while serving I was diagnosed with PTSD so I'm able to help people with the same problems as they are able to relate. I get countless messages from current and former military members asking for advice on how to deal with PTSD and other issues. I always take the time to write them back as my message might help someone get through the day easier. I currently live in LA, California where I train clients regularly personally and online. I also just released my fitness app which is top 130 on the health and fitness charts. Everyday I challenge myself to become better than the day before while inspiring as many people as I can along the way. I am very grateful for everything that has happened in my life and I also wanna thank current and former military members for serving this great country. Thank you for this opportunity once again @veteranvisionproject.
