#9Nation Podcast Ep. 29 Mental Health with Coach Joe

When the pandemic hit, Coach Joseph Gay (@josephmichaelkenneth) was brand new to New York City.

So on top of the isolation of being new in town, Joseph was also physically confined to his apartment. And like many of us, his mental health took a hit. 😪

🎙 On this week’s #9NationPodcast, Joseph tells us how he coped, and found a passion for fitness in the process. (Spoilers: #CrossFit9 at-home workouts were a key factor! 🔑)
