Thanks so much for checking out Joy, Fitness, & Style!  My name is Joy.

I am a certified personal fitness trainer through the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) and have been in the fitness industry for over 20 years now.  When I’m not in the gym or hanging with the family, you’ll find me outdoors in the beautiful Pacific Northwest.  I love hiking, biking, and other outdoor adventures and love to share the beauty of where I live.

I’m also a Sweat Pink Ambassador, Athleta Esprit de She Ambassador (use code EDS7 when registering for a Esprit de She race), contributor at Seattle Backpackers Magazine, part of the POPSUGAR Select fitness blogger team, and love giving my knowledge to you!

Here’s a taste from the past couple years on here…
