Joseph Edmund Kenreich was born July 22nd 1972, in Indianapolis,
Indiana. He went to be with the Lord on February 21st 2020.
Joseph was an NFT Certified Master Trainer from 2010 until 2020, and was
based primarily at Sports Clubs in Mid-town Manhattan, “Big Joe” was
known for his unique approach, and love of training. He was devoted to his
colleagues, clients, club members, and the auxiliary staff at these facilities.
Joseph, known for his booming voice when training clients, whether in an
active session or within ear shot, were familiar with the following refrains:
“Freeze!...Pump It!...Its Your House!...Bonus Rounds!...Break it
Down!...My Weight!...Walk in the Park!...Come Out like a Gorilla, Bench
like a Gorilla!...You Got This!...Eat Big! ” John Challice, who trained with
Joseph for ten years, offers this remembrance: “He would often miscount,
usually to the disadvantage of whoever was lifting. You’d have 11
done...but he was still on 9.”
Joseph is survived by; Robin Silver-Merriweather, his daughters, Shante
Kenreich, Shakia Kenreich, JaWaun Kenreich, and his grand-children,
Janaria, Destiny, Noah, Makaile, and MiraBella.

My deepest condolences to the family. I just found out and I’m in total shock. Joe was one of the best, genuine person I ever met. Always with a bright smile and kind word. RIP my friend. Heaven gain an angel

My factual memory is that Joseph E. Kenreich was raised by the “Kenreich family“ with the help of some other local , wonderful families. I know this because I am his sister since he was born and my parents are his actual parents. This apparently needs to be known.

Joe, you were genuinely one of the happiest and positive people I had ever met in my life. I would see you while walking in and out of the gym and although I only trained with you twice, you were the reason I was excited to start exercising. We talked about how we were going to meet every Friday going forward and I’m going to miss your buzzing, bright energy that filled up the entire gym. See you on the flip side!

One of the greatest men to grace my life. I give thanks to whatever/whomever brought us together six years ago. A heart as a big as could be and a mind as open and as could be. Give me a bonus five, Joe!
I’ll miss you.
