Hi! I’m Joel.
Carolina Multisports, LLC was born out of my love of connecting with people and helping others to discover, learn from, and excel in endurance sports.
But it’s more than that…I want you to discover something new about yourself. I want you to pursue a meaningful path. I want you to excel in your efforts. I want you to do something that might seem impossible today.
As a kid, I found sports enjoyable. I played soccer and I wrestled. I enjoyed the camaraderie of my teams and I was influenced by great coaches, mentors, and friends. I learned many life lessons along the way that shaped my life with unforgettable experiences. Through adversity and success, lasting memories and friendships were created.
As an adult, I found myself spending each day locked in the routine of “everyday life.” I was struggling with my marriage. I was struggling with addictions. I needed to change. Each year that went by, I was losing the vitality and excitement that defined my youth.
I looked to my youth for inspiration. At the invitation of a friend, I took on the challenge of learning a new sport. I hired a coach, trained diligently, and completed a sprint triathlon. I was hooked! First, because I did something that I never thought I could or would do. Second, because the sport was teaching me more about myself and what I’m capable of.
As I was training for my first Full Triathlon (140.6 miles), something really special happened. The longer the workouts got, the more time I had to spend inside my head. Initially, I started training as a way to get away from my problems by doing something I enjoyed, but the opposite happened. My mind forced me to face my problems each day. Those were uncomfortable days, not only physically, but mentally, emotionally, and spiritually too.
Through the medium of sport and competition, I have developed the patience, perspective, and strength to acknowledge, confront, and overcome many of my personal flaws and limitations. Through my coaches, both past and present, I have also learned that someone else will push you harder than you’ll push yourself. Through it all, new milestones have been achieved, and lasting memories and new friends continue to be a constant reward.
Carolina Multisports is not only as a great fitness outlet, but a place to rebuild your confidence, and change your life. I want to join you on your journey. I’m on a mission to pay forward what the coaches in my life have given me.

Joel is all heart! He cares more about the success of his athletes than his own. He’s not just a coach or trainer. His wisdom and experiences are beyond his age! He is an amazing listener and can relate to every athlete’s personal and athletic situations. Be careful, he might just become your next best friend.– Degaulle
