Before BLOCK, Joseph Hawthorne owned the highest ranking fitness studio in Pasadena, CA, Copper Moose Fitness. It was a thriving gym, with an amazing community and culture.
He closed December 2018, to move to Tucson,
and raise his son here (near family).
He is excited, proud, and honored to bring his expertise to the community of
