Body Systems Certified Nutrition Coach
Joey is a certified nutrition coach who spends his days helping others live their healthiest lives, but this wasn’t always the case. Joey spent years as an entrepreneur working 16 hour days. This came at the cost of his health, wellness, and many of his relationships.
After years of this grind, Joey found himself 65+ pounds overweight, unhealthy, and unsatisfied with his life. So, he decided to make a change.
He signed up for personal training at a local boxing gym in hopes of getting in shape and losing a few pounds. He was unaware of the transformative journey that lay ahead. As a veteran martial artist of over 20 years, Joey fell right into stride in the boxing world. He quickly became sparring partners with the competitive athletes at the gym, sparring with undefeated competitive fighters regularly.
As Joey got the opportunity to work out and talk with competitive fighters and coaches across the boxing, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, and MMA world, he started to see that the success of these athletes was the result of far more than just hours in the gym.
Nutrition is a significant part of a healthy lifestyle.
He saw that nutrition, recovery, and wellness protocols were engineered into their lifestyles. He realized that in order to achieve peak performance, your lifestyle has to match inside and outside the gym.
Knowing how intimidating the gym environment could be but how effective these lifestyle choices were for fat loss, Joey wanted to find a way to bring this knowledge to more than just the athletes in the gym.
