Joycelyn Francis, Founder of Joyfit World

Meet Joycelyn Francis, a Certified Fitness Coach living in North, NJ originally from the beautiful twin island of Trinidad and Tobago.

Joy, as she is so affectionately called, is a NASM Certified Fitness & Nutrition Coach. My passion for a fit and healthy lifestyle started as a teenager while playing basketball and enjoying hiking in the hills of Lower Santa Cruz, Trinidad. 

As a survivor of childhood sexual abuse she considers herself a warrior. She started using fitness as a coping mechanism to overcome depression, anxiety, and PTSD. She says fitness helped her conquer many obstacles and challenges.

She enjoys endurance running, and participating in obstacle courses such as Hardcore Caribbean, Fusion lite, and Tough Mudder.

On this fitness journey, her goal is to inspire and encourage people through her story of overcoming trauma by helping them to conquer their mind and body through new levels of fitness. Her training style is a mixture of various techniques including Resistance Training, High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT), Strength and Conditioning, Flexibility, and Mobility training.


In 2020, we spoke to Joy on our All About The Sisters Podcast in an episode titled MOVING YOUR BODY MATTERS. Check it out HERE.
