Here’s what my clients have to say:

Joyce gets a hearty two thumbs up from me!  I’ve worked out with Joyce for several years and she is nothing short of excellent.  She listens attentively to any issues your body is having and customizes your workout.  She’s motivational, supportive, reliable and keeps the workouts fun and varied.  I’ve done workouts where she’s integrated cardio, strength training, yoga, breathing, and even balance and vestibular exercises all in one session. Plus Joyce has adapted our in-person workouts to Zoom without a hitch.  I greatly appreciate her response time to questions – she’s super fast and even goes above and beyond in fielding questions about family member’s body issues.  If that weren’t enough, the thing I love and respect most about working out with Joyce is her expansive knowledge.  She’s like a trainer, body expert, athlete, PT and coach all rolled up into one! I feel so lucky to have found Joyce.  Like a trusted doctor, she’s an integral part of my overall health team.     Beth B., Marketing Consultant 

I came to Joyce for help after a stress fracture ended my dream of running the Boston Marathon in 2015.  I was told by an orthopedist said he didn’t think that more long distance running was in my future.  Joyce didn’t believe a word of it.  She was convinced that I could run the Marathon and she was right!  Working with her while I trained for the marathon was an amazing experience.  She focused on my entire body, especially the areas that weren’t working so well.  At each step along the way, she figured out how to make the aches and pains recede.  She helped build up my strength and endurance and improve my body awareness through postural training and a variety of mobility drills.  During the last few miles of the marathon, I even had the stamina to enjoy (and have a little kick), something which I never would have believed possible!  I am so grateful for her insights and thoughtful way she approached my particular challenges.  I know that I will run better from now on because of her!  Liz H., 2016 Boston Marathon finisher

When we first started working together, my primary goal was to focus on right hip issue that was impacting on my two favorite activities, squash and hiking.  Eventually, I needed to have my hip replaced but got back to training with Joyce 3 weeks later.   Despite having the surgery, years of compensating for my bum hip required retraining of my posture and balance.  I quickly realized that Joyce is remarkably talented at seeing and understanding the ways in which a body works, or doesn’t, and is then remarkably creative at finding ways of helping to relieve pain or strengthen weak muscles through mobility exercises.  Joyce has worked patiently with me to slowly unwind years of maladaptations and has helped me develop a better awareness of my body.  I’m happy to say that I am back on the squash court three times a week, moving better than I ever did!   Charley L., Writer and Former Private Pilot

Joyce has an extensive and ever-growing knowledge base on all things regarding health, nutrition and movement of the human body.  She is an excellent motivator.  She enjoys getting to know her clients well and working with them to establish and achieve their goals.  I am constantly impressed at how hard she works to improve and update her knowledge and techniques.  Her dedication to her clients is unparalleled.  Jonathan B., Owner of L. Bornstein & Company, Inc. 

Joyce knows her stuff.  A talented athlete in her own right, Joyce’s infectious attitude and passion for all things movement and nutrition make her a one-of-a-kind teacher.  Her training methodology is the perfect blend of holistic and scientific.  I’ve learned from my interactions with her over the past couple of years that when she speaks, listen with intent:  You will feel better, you will look better, and leave every session smarter and in a better mood than when you started.  Corey P., Z-Health Master Trainer
