My name is Joy Kushner and I am a National Academy of Sports Medicine certified personal trainer with specializations in Weight Loss, Fitness Nutrition, Pre & Post Natal Training, YogaFit, and International Ballet Barre Fitness Association.
For the past 13 years I’ve been teaching women how to change their life through exercise and nutritious eating.
Even though I was born with a birth defect, spina bifida occulta, I never let that limit me or my dreams. After giving birth to our first child in 2005, I decided to enter my first figure competition as a goal to get back into shape. I ended up winning my first few competitions, and decided to pursue my newfound passion of fitness & nutrition! Since then I have built a successful coaching business, and written for, as well as been featured in several International fitness magazine including Oxygen, Oxygen Australia, Fitness South Africa, STRONG, Inside Fitness, Muscle & Fitness Hers, and TRAIN for Her.
I took a huge leap of faith by leaving my job as a surgical technologist in the operating room, and opened up a women only personal training business, Joy Personal Training. I have fought hard to learn how to recover and rebuild my physique after 2 difficult pregnancies and being injured in 2 motor vehicle accidents that causes additional injuries to my back and neck.
This is why I am passionate about providing women with the knowledge, inspiration, motivation, and encouragement needed to reach their health and fitness goals! My mission is to help you live your healthiest life without resorting to extremes!
I know that life is busy, but you CAN learn how to live a fit lifestyle! I help women find balance with healthy eating habits and results-driven workouts. I want you to know that through drive, dedication, and a disciplined mind and body, YOU CAN ACHIEVE YOUR GOALS AS WELL!
Whether you are new to fitness or not, I would love to help you reach your goals of a strong, lean, and healthy body! I want you to LOVE the way you LOOK & FEEL!!
