Training with Joy has thus far enabled me to maintain my fitness base that I built prior to pregnancy. She has allowed me to feel healthy and maintain a positive self image. As a physician, I have researched how much exercise can augment your pregnancy. Joy does an excellent job designing the perfect program that will allow you to maintain your fitness base and recover easily from pregnancy. She has clearly done her research on the best core exercises to do during pregnancy that will promote a rapid recovery.

As a busy working mom with a toddler running around, I followed Joy's program during and after my second pregnancy. I could not believe how toned and fit I became. My husband says that my tush looks better now than it did even before I was pregnant – thanks to Joy! Her workouts and cheerful encouragement will inspire you, motivate you, and sculpt you throughout your pregnancy. and even afterwards. The format of Joy’s program, which includes several different types of workouts, allowed me to customize the style and length of workout to fit my busy schedule and my changing energy-levels. Joy’s workouts gave me the energy and stamina I needed to stay motivated at work and run after my toddler at home.

When I found out I was pregnant, I was so excited and I remember thinking I will finally be a mom. I also remember thinking I want to be a strong mom, I wanted a healthy fit pregnancy. I didn't want to be the mom to be that would take the next nine months off from the gym. I didn't want to gain an enormous amount of weight. I was 35 years old and pregnant, my body wouldn't bounce back like the pregnant ladies 10-15 years my junior. I needed to stay active and eat healthy during my pregnancy. I needed Joy. I consider myself fortunate to have trained with Joy during my pregnancy. Because I trained with joy I experienced a great, healthy pregnancy and a pleasurable birthing experience, And I owe it all to Joy's passion of prenatal fitness and promoting a healthy life style. Not only am I proud to say I am a mom, but I am so honored to train with Joy. I can't wait to have another baby so I can do it again.

When I found out I was pregnant for my second son I had some complications. After the first twelve weeks of pelvic rest, I was released back to normal activity. I felt that if I was going to have a healthy remainder of my pregnancy it was important to incorporate exercise into my daily routine. Because Joy is a prenatal and postpartum certified trainer, I decided she would be the best choice for both the baby and I. Training with Joy during my pregnancy was the best decision that I could’ve made. Besides the typical benefits that come from an exercise program, I also felt energized and stayed active throughout my entire pregnancy. My healthy baby boy was born three months ago and I have since begun postpartum training with Joy and I am already seeing results. Joy is conscious to design a fitness plan that meets each individual’s needs and realizes that all of her prenatal and postpartum clients progress differently. I would recommend Joy’s services to anyone looking to have a healthy and fulfilling prenatal experience.

Joy has brought something so much more than good health and the love of fitness into my life... Today I feel like I can accomplish any goal that is put in front of me, and am no longer afraid of a challenge! Both my family life and my career have blossomed because of the boost in confidence and energy that I have gained as a direct result of Joy’s ability to push me beyond anything I thought I could achieve!!”
... I can with absolute certainty tell you that Joy will NOT disappoint. This is the best gift I could have given myself. I feel better at 36 than I did in my teens and twenties. We know better now and should do better... Joy is able to help you elevate your overall well being to the next level!
Joy has extensive knowledge and patience with a woman’s prenatal and postnatal body. Eight months postpartum, I am wearing loose pre-pregnancy jeans, and feeling much stronger than I have in a very long time. Many of her exercises focus on rebuilding and strengthening the core which is so important in the postpartum stage. She individualizes workouts, not making the client feel that their fitness level is not at the level it should be—while encouraging the client at every stage.
I started working out with Joy 5 weeks after I had my baby. He is now 14 months old and I don’t know where I would be without her. Joy’s enthusiasm and support pushed me that extra mile... I wouldn't have even known where to start on my own. I definitely owe my success to Joy and appreciate from the bottom of my heart all her hard work that she dedicated to my health and happiness!
