Coach Josh

My name is Josh Flores, I was born and raised in the Bay Area. I played basketball at Serra High School (C/O 2013) in San Mateo. I went away for college and received my B.S. in Kinesiology-Exercise Science from California State University, Long Beach in 2017. In addition to training at UPB, I am currently working as an aide in an outpatient general orthopedics clinic in the Financial District of SF. I am a Certified Personal Trainer through the National Academy of Sports Medicine and my focus is to impact lives through informing individuals of all age groups about body awareness and proper biomechanics. Basketball is my passion and after having multiple knee surgeries due to ACL tears I am able to share my journey. I teach the lessons I learned through my recovery to athletes in order to mitigate the likelihood of them getting injured and prepare their bodies to be resilient for their respective sport. I’m an avid runner and a member of the WeRunSF running club in San Francisco.
