Introduction: I live in Lynchburg, Va. 🙂 and have been in the fitness industry for 35 years training, encouraging, coaching, mentoring both individuals and groups. I hold a bachelor’s degree in Health/Physical Education. I keep current with my Personal Training and Nutrition Coaching certifications, as well as I am Corrective Exercise Specialist through NASM (National Academy of Sports Medicine). I have helped people to lose weight, strengthen, condition, tone up, increase in cardiovascular strength and endurance as well as gain balance and flexibility. I have experience training both male and female ages 3-93 and now I am set up to train clients Virtually! I still will train in my studio, outside, in your office, or your home as well if you are in my 20 mile radius. I will travel to get you set up to train Virtually (if needed). The consultation and assessments are conducted before “sessions” begin in order for me to make your program “personal”. Personal Training Prices range with a base of $40 for in person and $32 for remote/virtual. My smallest package is eight sessions. Please ask about discounts for first timers and referrals!

Working with Joy has been so amazing. She is approachable, well educated, motivating, and truly caring. Throughout training she explains the benefits of the exercises, pushes you, and also helps incorporate healthy lifestyle habits into your routine. Throughout my past months with Joy my confidence has increased, and I have a lot of fun working out.

I love working with Joy. She’s very encouraging, very knowledgeable, gives great tips on nutrition and dieting and gives you a good workout. She’s tough but in a nice way. I’m happy to start but glad when it’s over. I truly have come a long way with her guidance. I would highly recommend her. You won’t regret it.

    There is flexibility with my programs! “Sessions” or your personal program can look different from other clients!

    1st a free consultation and assessments. I need to know what your current condition is in order to make your program progressive and personal. I listen to your goals and desires as well as your schedule and lifestyle in order to fine tune where we begin and what route will work in your day.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have 35 years experience, a B.S. in Health & Physical Education as well as National Academy of Sports Medicine Certified Personal Trainer and Corrective Exercise Specialist and Certified Nutrition Coach.
