Josh passionately believes in the life-changing benefits of personal discipline, functional fitness, and the pursuit of mental and physical health. His goal as a coach is to enable individuals to make long-term lifestyle changes, both physical and mental.
He began his athletic and coaching career in TaeKwon-Do and boxing 20 years ago, and was a member of a GTF US National Team in 2000. After leaving the sport he built a career in mergers and acquisitions focused on fraud and complex commercial integration. Unfortunately, during that time, he lost much of his mental well-being and physical health and reclaimed both after finding Olympic Weightlifting.
Josh believes that the psychology of sport, fitness and combat training plays a vital role in the success of any program and enhances lives on and off the training floor. He is dedicated to creating a positive training environment to help clients overcome self-doubt or perceived limitations to achieve their full potential with training and their professional goals.
“None of my athletes, friends or colleagues can say I haven’t walked their path (or an equivalent) of adversity. I have made every possible mistake and had every possible challenge, physical and mental, and I want to help people understand that no obstacle cannot be overcome”.
After finding Olympic Weightlifting, Josh reestablished the roots that had made him successful and rededicated his life to serving others through coaching strength and conditioning.
He has very few loves in his life. Jesus Christ, his wife, his children, his athletes, his coaches, Weightlifting, and CrossFit.
He is the head coach and driving force behind CrossFit StoneCutter.

Tyler serves as the Senior High Student Ministry Director at Northwest Bible Church in Spring, just fifteen minutes down the road from CrossFit StoneCutter. Before going into full-time ministry, Tyler worked for Baker Hughes in Tomball as an Instructional Design Project Manager – designing animated and computer based training materials for engineers in the oil field. Prior to his work in the oil and gas industry, he taught classes in visual effects and received his Masters of Fine Arts in Visualization from Texas A&M in College Station.
Tyler has been involved in CrossFit since 2013 when he saw the games for the first time and began doing the workouts in his own backyard. Frustrated with the lack of results from attending globo-gyms for over ten years, it was easy for Tyler to recognize the potential of this growing fitness methodology. After moving to Houston and joining his first affiliate, he was introduced to quality coaching from Josh Wilson and discovered his newfound passion for the sport of fitness.
Tyler and his wife, Abby, enjoy working together at NWBC and engaging in conversations about faith, fitness, and food.

Nick is a proud and devoted father to two beautiful girls.
Nick grew up an average kid. Never touched a barbell or played high school sports. For the longest time he thought staying healthy and exercising was playing recreational softball a few nights a week. After breaking his ankle in a softball game, he began looking for other ways to stay active.
At the end of 2012, he discovered Crossfit and his life changed forever. Something that started as a new year’s resolution to lose weight turned into a life’s passion to live healthy and pay it forward to help others do the same.
