My name is Joseph Gibbons. I am a full-time professor at Humber College where I hold exemplary faculty status. I have 20 years of experience as a professor, exercise physiologist, health and lifestyle coach, and mental health first aid instructor.

My mission is to help people overcome the life obstacles that impedes their journey towards optimal physical, mental, and spiritual health. Discovering Optimal is the result of more than a decade of study on the optimization of health and wellness.

In addition to my professional endeavours, I am a small-town living, sports loving, father to miracle twin boys, Jakoby and Elijah. My days are spent helping people improve their health and wellness; and my nights are spent chasing kids and listening to my beautiful wife sing.

I am so honoured to have you and I hope you find even one nugget of information that serves to set you on a path towards optimal mental, physical and spiritual wellbeing.

I hope you enjoy!
