Name: Michael Joyce
What city were you born in? Raleigh, NC (one of the few actually born here)
What do you do when you’re not working out at Athletic Lab (occupation, hobbies, etc)? I am a project manager at a specialty chemical company. I formulate “green” coatings for various industries. The main applications are for paper and packaging products. I also like to take long walks on the beach, cozy up with a book by the fire, and get lost staring into beautiful women’s eyes.
What’s your favorite exercise? Least favorite? Favorite is back squat. Least is running.
What do you feel has been your greatest accomplishment since you started training at Athletic Lab? Snatching over 100kg in competition, which is more than double what I could do when I first began olympic lifting.
What motivates you? A simple desire to be better ever day.
