Welcome to the JoyFit Nation.
Joy Perugini is a Health Fitness & Happiness Coach, as well as a Writer, Speaker, Runner, Dancer, Yogini, but above all else, she is an Entrepreneur. She finds her passion in helping driven individuals live their DREAM LIVES and their DREAM BODIES. Her twenty-five years of diverse experience in the fitness industry include establishments throughout the continental United States and Hawaii. Her Bachelor of Science degree in Health Science with a concentration in Exercise Science and Sports Medicine provides a strong knowledge-base to her work. Joy started as a student athletic trainer at Eastern College in Pennsylvania and interned at a physical therapy center treating sports related injuries. During a two-year residency on Maui, Hawaii, Joy served as the Fitness Center Manager, Lead Fitness Trainer and Group Exercise Coordinator at the Grand Wailea Resort and Spa, rated the #1 Resort Spa in the World by Conde Nast Magazine. Joy’s tenure there increased her knowledge of the spa industry and importance of customer care.
Joy was born and raised in West Hartford, CT and returned there as an in-home personal trainer, helping many clients achieve their wellness goals. She later managed a health and fitness center for a major international corporation based in Hartford, CT. Feeding her entrepreneurial spirit, Joy opened a boutique group exercise and personal training studio located in Plainville, CT, in June 2006. The studio offered customized classes and training to individuals of all fitness levels and abilities, and housed a distinctively friendly atmosphere in an industry known to intimidate many.
While still running the day to day activities at the studio, in 2014 Joy decided to expand her reach and spread her love of life, fitness, health and wellness far and wide by forming her web-based company, JoyFit Nation, LLC. Today, she spreads insight, motivation and inspiration by sharing her message and signature programming online and in person via live classes, retreats and events at JoyFit Nation’s StudioX, looking to provide “fitspiration for a happy nation” and quite possibly the world.
