Joyell “Joy” regained her spark for fun fitness in her adult life when she startedattending Zumba Fitness classes around 2009. She decided that she wanted to become certified in 2011 and she has been teaching since 2012. She also obtained her AFAA group fitness certification shortly after. Since then she has developed an interest in various cardio, strength, and some flexibility group fitness formats. After having her two-little girls, Joy realized that she wanted to broaden her fitness instructor horizons. In late 2018, she discovered Pound Fitness and decided that she could surely envision herself teaching it. She became certified in March 2019. She is very eager to gather fitness rebels and bring a ‘badass’ rock-out workout to the area. She loves teaching this format and can’t wait to have others join her ‘Pound Posse’. Joyell is energetic, fun-loving, and she has a passion for helping other of all fitness levels to have a positive release, develop bonds, and enjoy themselves all while getting an effective and safe work-out.
