About Billy Joe

At the age of 39, I looked at my family history of heart disease, hypertension, arthritis, osteoporosis, diabetes and cancer and realized that many of these genetic illnesses were going to happen to me. Knowing that, I resolved to make it all go better by changing my fitness and nutrition. Now at 57, I do indeed have high blood pressure, athritis and osteopenia (which is improving with strength training!), but keep it in check with both Western and alternative medicine, exercise and diet. I help my clients retrain and regain control of their body through personal training and fitness coaching.

Once a professional theatre actor, I found my way into the fitness industry when an instructor of a group class didn't show and I volunteered to fill in. I've never looked back. I am certified by The National Academy of Sports Medicine as a personal trainer as well in fitness nutrition and behavior change, by International Childbirth Education Association in pre/post natal exercise and by The Cancer ExerciseTraining Institute as a cancer exercise specialist.
