"Young athletes need a facility and a program that applies to their age and sport specific requirements. My number one priority is to provide participants with foundational movement skills they will use for the rest of their lives. Our program is custom based and designed with short and long term agreed upon goals."

Unlike many gym owners and trainers, Josh has had a razor focus on training education and athletics since High School.  Josh grew up in Sutton, Massachusetts playing baseball, running track, and snowboarding, but he was most known for his accomplishments in soccer.  Josh was a starting player for four years for the Varsity Soccer team at Castleton University in Vermont, where he received a BA in Exercise Science.  
When Josh was a junior in high school, a former professional soccer player developed a cross training workout for his team.  This was a defining moment for Josh; the results were not only an improved performance on the field, but Josh’s physical transformation motivated him to continue the cross training program. Josh took this experience and ran with it - studying Exercise Science in college.  While there, Josh was named Castleton’s Male Athlete of the Year, NAC Player of the Year, NAC 1st Team All Star as well as NSCAA All New England Team, and NEISL Senior All Star.  It was in college that Josh began his certifications including International Youth Conditioning Association Speed and Agility Specialist.  Josh also became a certified National Strength and Conditioning Association Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist.  After a few years of personal training, Josh began training small groups of kids at local fields and homes, hoping to impart the memorable experience he had in high school. 
Eventually, Josh’s success and hard work led to the opening of RAPT, where Josh and his trainers work day in and out to help their clients reach their goals. Josh’s focus at RAPT is maintaining industry knowledge, while teaching his clients that for every goal, there is an individual path to training and fitness.  Josh’s clients love the constant progression and regression of exercise selection, with no two days being alike.  
When he is not training, Josh finds time to play competitive soccer both indoors and out.  He and his wife, Kelly, are Season Spartan racers, having completed 16 Spartan competitions including the Spartan Trifecta.  Josh has imparted his love of Spartan races on his clients, with a RAPT presence at nearly every local Spartan race.  The Costa’s four-legged mascot, Hazel, a brown labrador retriever, is also a friendly fixture at RAPT.
