From 2008 to 2018, Joel worked for Men's Fitness, which predated, and then shared a website with, Coach. Joel moved from features editor, to acting editor, associate editor and finally editor-at-large. Joel has also written for The Telegraph and The Guardian. Though he spent years running the hills of Bath, he’s since ditched his trainers for a succession of Converse high-tops, since they’re better suited to his love of pulling vans, lifting cars, and hefting logs in a succession of strongman competitions.
