I LOVE turbo kick. Turbo is the exercise class that doesn't feel like a workout - until the end when you realize you are dripping with sweat! It's fun, it's different, and it's energizing. I have lost over 40 lbs.- yes that's 40 lbs. - I can hardly believe it myself but it's true. Joanie is a terrific instructor - she is knowledgable, she's an inspiration, and she's just a great person!  I get upset if I ever have to miss one of her classes. Thanks to all of her hard work I have been able to change the way I think about exercise and change the way I look and feel for the better!!!!!

Joanie has an amazing, positive attitude and makes a tough workout so much fun. She’s also great at helping people of all fitness levels have success with Bootcamp! It’s one of my favorite hours of the week.

Another thing about the class that I love is the atmosphere. I only knew one person when I started, but it feels like you have a little family when you’re done. Everyone is so welcoming and it doesn’t matter how good or bad you are at the moves, because everyone encourages you. Love it!

Hi Joanie,


I definitely woke up this morning and felt like I got hit by a truck. Great workout last night, thank you! I really loved using the weights.


Your classes have been my savior, I have been so stressed out these last 8 months with my new job and planning the wedding that this has been my release. I used to belong to a gym back home and I loved taking the kickboxing and step classes. When I moved, I was so sad not to have that in my life anymore. I'm so happy I found your class, your enthusiasm and expertise will guide me to the fit bod I intend to have not just for the big day but for the rest of my life!


Thank you for letting me know about the summer program.

Have a great day!



Hi Joanie,

   I just wanted to thank you for yesterday's class. Wow! What a workout! I always considered myself a workout video queen, I have done tons of them and get the moves pretty quickly (its not hard to get through one for me either) but last night I was barely able to keep up. I don't think I have sweated that much, ever. I'm definitely feeling the effects this morning, but I know I actually did something good for my body last night. This is exactly what I'm looking for to get into the shape I want to be for my wedding and for my life. I'm really looking forward to Saturday's Turbokick and to boot camp next week!


Thank you again,


"Changed my entire eating and fitness habits! I love b fit boxing and lost 20 lbs ! Joanie is nothing less than inspirational!"


She is AWESOME!  I would love to take more classes from her.  Her energy is infectious and she is a great teacher.  Hopefully she will be able to teach more classes – I would love to take more!

Thanks and have a great day!


Be Fit Boxing gets 100% thumbs up as a merchant with living social!!!

"The classes were fun and quite a workout - Joanie is a fabulous instructor!"

"Before signing up for the deal, I had never heard of it. Now I take two classes with Be Fit Boxing every week!"

"It's a great workout and the trainer is so enthusiastic. This will definitely be a fun way to get in shape."

"Joanie is very enthusiastic and makes the classes fun."

"Joanie is very enthusiastic and makes the classes fun."

"Joanie I must tell you that I ABSOLUTELY enjoyed Saturday's class.  It was just what I needed to step up my routine.  This time I felt the pain in my abs, side, butt and thighs.  So I know that session hit all the core areas I was lacking.  After your workout I went to the gym til noon and did my cardio and weight routine.  I will keep my eye out for other specials that you place on LS and will look into signing up for a month. 


Great work out from a great Trainer....Thank You!  Izzy.

PS>>>  If I continue to keep this up I'll get back into my bikini by summer and look fabulous...LOL!!!"

I just want to thank you for last Tuesday night’s class. You are a great teacher and I left feeling very inspired and energized. I was looking at you jump around up there in front of the class, and I was thinking, yeah, she looks amazing but she’s probably about 25…I was also feeling like I was the oldest one in the class (I’m 44) Once you announced your age, however, I suddenly had a new role model!!


Making Fitness Fun

My husband and I have made active vacations a part of our lives for many years.  We have hiked many of the US National Parks in Montana, Wyoming, New Mexico and Arizona; the Dolomites in northern Italy and the Andes in Peru. 

This year we set out on another adventure to the Patagonia region in southern Chile.  The area is famous for hiking the “W” which consists of a series of pretty rigorous full day hikes.

As with all of our trips, being fit is a critical part of being able to take full advantage of what the region has to offer. 

We typically start training several months ahead of our trips.  An important part of preparing is simply getting “time in boots” and getting ourselves “pack worthy”.  We typically go on long walks (in boots and with packs).  In addition, we incorporate kickboxing sessions with Joanie.  She helps us focus on cardiovascular conditioning, muscle strength and balance, which is important when walking on rugged, narrow trails.   We found these workouts so helpful that a month ahead of our departure we doubled our workout sessions with Joanie!  These sessions not only help us improve our fitness levels, but they are a lot of fun! 

So for us the journey is getting ready as well as the trip itself!  Next stop is Mount Blanc in the French and Italian Alps!



Joanie, I woke up this morning with very sore legs and immediately thought of you! 😉

Just want to thank you again because we are so grateful for what you do here!  My schedule doesn't always permit me to get to the gym here, but I definitely don't like to miss your class!  Thank you for continuing to inspire us to "get low" and work harder!                                                                                        ~Chet

Hey Joanie!!! I just had to share this with you. Tonight was my first time back on the volleyball court in two years since having my second child. When I went back to play after having my first child it was horrible. I couldn't move... I couldn't jump... It took me forever to get back in the swing of things. BUT!!!! Since having my second child it has now been two months that I have been taking your classes and tonight showed me how much of a difference it has made. Volleyball is my one true passion that has been with me my whole life and since giving up the coaching part of it so that we could start a family this is the one time of year that I get to do something for me and it felt so good. I didn't need any time to get back in the swing of things. I could run and jump and could feel the difference in myself all because of your classes. So I just wanted to say thank you for making one of my passions in life that much more enjoyable. I might not be able to move tomorrow after the pounding my body took tonight but I'll see you in class tomorrow!

Hi Joanie, 

I just realized I didn't get to say bye and thank you for the classes throughout the past month! I just got back to DC to start the new semester, but will definitely stop by when I'm home on the weekends and of course over the summer. I miss the classes so much already and can't believe the results after just four weeks!

Hey Joanie!

Was so great to finally get back to your classes, I love them!  It took me way longer than planned to get myself back there and work on my health.  It's been a crazy-busy 2 years since we had our little guy, and things finally seem to be settling out.

Thanks so much!  You are a wonderful, positive (but tough) motivator and I love coming to your classes!  Glad to be back!

See ya soon,



Joanie has pushed me and helped me to be the person I am today. She is actually the reason I took the leap from corporate America to following my dream. I love fitness. I love helping others. So, if I can get a job i love doing and that people are truly benefiting from...then that's the dream for me! Not only are her classes just incredible, but she is seriously always there to talk, help, give advice, and genuininley care to make sure you get the best and most fulfilling workout you can.

I actually ended up getting the jobs that I have now in gyms, one-on-one training, group training, and fitness classes...and I have to say that Joanie was the one who believed in me and told me to go for. So now I get to do what I love and love what I do; and for that I will be forever grateful to such an amazing, energitic, motivational, and inspirational human being. And you don't need to be trainer or anything to take her classes, but trust me- these classes are upbeat, fun, involved, and then at the end (rather than the dreaded 1 hour of training where most people count down the minutes) you are left feeling like a new person (seriously). I think just that wonderful natural high of working your body to lImits around so many positive people, it is one of the exhilarate feelings in the world.

Go Joanie <3 ! Thanks for continuing to help me along my journey! Even if you don't mean to sometimes, I always learn something. No little tip or piece of advice or smile you give go unnoticed- don't ever forget that :) I look forward to one day following in your footsteps and being able to make my clients look and feel as great as you have. This business deserves nothing less than an A+ and definitly 5 stars. I recommend it to all my friends and have yet to be proven wrong. Try it out - what do you have to lose?!” - Mary G.
