Personal trainer and strength coach Joe Dowdell is one of the most highly sought-after fitness experts in the world. His motivating teaching style and unique expertise have helped transform a clientele that includes stars of television and film, musicians, pro athletes, CEO’s and top fashion models from around the world—an association reflecting his own former career in front on the camera. Joe was the former founder and CEO of Peak Performance; a 10,000-square-foot private training facility, which was voted the #3 gym in America by Men’s Health Magazine. As of January 2018, Joe launched his new global brand, Dowdell Fitness Systems, where he offers a “pick your own fitness adventure” online coaching platform and delivers his entire training system and philosophy.
Over the last 22 years, Mr. Dowdell has earned many of the top certifications in the varied disciplines (biomechanics, physiology, etc.) that constitute fitness, and his ability to articulate that knowledge has made him a regular expert contributor to national publications as diverse as Marie Claire, Vogue, Men’s Health, Women's Health, Allure, Muscle & Fitness and Fitness Magazine, on whose advisory board he serves. Mr. Dowdell has contributed to the following books: The A-List Workout (McGraw Hill), Mario Lopez’s Knockout Fitness (Rodale Publishing), Men’s & Women’s Health’s The Big Book of Exercises (Rodale Publishing), Men's Fitness Exercise Bible (Galvanized Books), 50 Cent’s Formula 50 (Penguin Books) and his own best-selling female fat loss book entitled “Ultimate You,” (Rodale Publishing) which is available on Amazon.com.

“People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.”
