Hodgkinson Award for Outstanding Dissertation Research for his inquiry on health beliefs, outcome expectancies, and stress appraisal in college seniors. As a health psychologist, Joshua's interest center on the intrinsic motives that underlie sustained health behavior change-seven of which serve as a the conceptual framework discussed in his upcoming book, "The I-Way to Well: Mapping the Seven Selves of Health Motivation", scheduled for an early-2017 release. As a fitness professional, Joshua has deep appreciation for educating others on the acute responses and chronic adaptations to physical exercise. And as a "motivation machinist", Joshua's infatuation with innate, self-sustaining forms of motivation keeps him on a continual quest to re-envision the journey to optimal health and wellbeing.
