Joey found exercise through sports, playing volleyball in college at the University of Texas at Austin. After relocating to Chicago in 2015, he discovered group fitness classes at CAC. His love for exercise, weightlifting, and people caused him to fall in love with group fitness and pursue a certification to teach and spread his love for BodyPump. Because he never liked exercise that much in early life, he is a big proponent offinding a type of exercise that is fun for you and that you love; this will cause you to keep doing it! Outside of the group fitness studio, you’ll find him playing volleyball, lifting on the gym floor, and cooking delicious, healthy food to support his fitness journey.
