Hi! My name is Joy Gallo. I have had a passion for helping others my entire life, and I love being fit and healthy. I want everyone I meet to experience the feeling of confidence they will get from being physically fit, and I want to help others feel what it is like to truly love their body inside and out. My fitness journey began in 2008 when I finished college and was slightly overweight, and had no clue what it meant to be healthy. I was 26 years old, worked out at my house daily, but was not really taking care of myself on the inside.
I then began to train for a half marathon because I wanted to challenge myself, since I never considered myself a runner. Throughout that journey I hated the running, but loved how I felt afterwards. When I finally completed the marathon I knew I wanted to do more. That is when I discovered interval training or HIIT training. I learned that you didn’t need to spend hours in a gym to make huge gains physically and mentally. I saw my body make a transformation. I was getting stronger and I loved the tone I was getting in my arms and how strong I felt. This type of training quickly became a part of my lifestyle.
Working out was a part of my life now, and I loved being active anyway I could, walking outside, doing a workout video at home, visiting local workout groups. As I was getting older, my body soon hit a plateau and I was feeling fatigued, but still working out. It was not until my first son was born in 2011, that I realized the importance of taking care of my body from the inside out. Like most women I wanted my body back immediately, so I did a popular weight loss program. I was counting every calorie and soon became obsessed to the point it was causing stress in my life and to the people around me. Yes I lost all the baby weight, but I was not happy, food caused me anxiety and I could not even enjoy a meal without thinking about it’s negative effects. I realized this was no way to live. So, I began to pay attention to labels, eat more plant based whole foods, and listen to my body while maintaining a consistent workout schedule.
I have changed a lot in the last 10 years, but there is one thing that has remained constant: My love of exercise. As I get older, it becomes much harder to maintain my ideal weight, but with the right nutrition and HIIT training I have been able feel confident with my body more today than I ever have. I really wanted to help others realize their abilities and gain confidence, just as I did, and that is when I discovered Fit Body Boot Camp and the Unstoppable Fitness Formula. Their dedication to changing the lives of others is perfectly in line with the services I want to provide.
