Josh Watson teaches in the Department of Kinesiology. He worked with several sports conditioning facilities and as an assistant with a university men’s golf team while earning his master’s degree; Josh has since returned to his alma mater armed with an array of practical knowledge.

For Josh, exercise impacts the spiritual, relational, and emotional aspects of life as well as the physical aspect. His goal in his teaching is to help his students understand the principals of living a healthy lifestyle, as well as to equip them with the tools they need to be well rounded individuals. He also serves as head strength and conditioning coach for Men's Basketball and Baseball.
