About Joe

Joe graduated Delaware Valley College with a B.S. in Biology and currently is a Senior Scientist at Merck since 2004. He is married to Jackalyn Knox with 2 children;  Athena and Joey. They keep their kids involved with a healthy lifestyle at their local YMCA and they are involved with their competition preps and love every minute of it. He started his healthy lifestyle and fitness goals when he was a teen.  Since then he has work with many different people. Some have mentored him and some he has had the honor to mentor them. He and his wife Jackie love the fitness industry when asked about it Joe said, "My wife and I are a strong team dedicated to improving our lives and the lives of people around us. We are ready, willing, and able to help out anyone who needs it."

Outside of work he enjoys training with his wife and spending time with their family and coaching others toward their own fitness goals.

Joe won the 2015 NPC Xcalibur Cup in the light heavyweight division. MuscleEgg is a staple in the Knox household and together they go through 8 gallons of MuscleEgg a month!

We caught up with Joe at the 2016 Mr. Olympia and got him to walk us through some of his go-to moves in the gym. Check out the video to get inspired!

Favorite Use of MuscleEgg
I love to make ice cream with muscleegg by mixing 1 cup of chocolate muscleegg with 1 1/2 cups of frozen strawberries, 2 tablespoons of peanut butter, and 1 scoop of your favorite protein powder. Blend all ingredients well in a high powered blender like the ninja professional and enjoy. My goto breakfast is 2 cups of cake batter muscleegg with 1 cup of quick oats in a shaker cup. Mix the two together and let sit for about 10 minutes until the oats soften. I then drink that on my way into work.
Favorite Hobbies
Outside the gym I really enjoy spending time with my family down the shore fishing and crabbing.
Best Advice I Ever Got
Knowing that we only live once so do what you love and love what you do. I came across a quote that said, If you alway do what you've always done then you'll always be what you've always been. That had a great impact on me, so I like to share that with others. We all have the potential to change and be something great! So ask yourself, How bad do I want it? and then make it happen!
