"In-studio" with client Moe Roddick, Founder and CEO of Electric Elders of Virginia.

Visualization Exercise

with Biofeedback


"Working with Joel was a great experience because he did not push me too hard and had the right approach for working with someone recovering from an injury. Other personal trainers I worked with just did the usual extreme exercises that would leave me in pain and susceptible to further injury. I did not have this worry with Joel at all . . . I highly recommend him to anyone looking for personal training."

-Moe Roddick

"For elderly people who have tried hard to gain back their physical mobility and were dissatisfied with ordinary senior workout classes, Joel's unique blend of physical exercise and mental mindfulness can be the ideal solution.

"Unlike the usual senior workout classes, Joel's fitness program applies . . . visualisation and targeting techniques that successful athletes use."
