Client Love on Nutrition Coaching
“I first contacted Joy when I came from Scotland to work on a Toronto project. What was to be a weekly training session to ensure I got some relaxation and exercise, quickly developed into a journey which significantly improved my health, energy and general well-being. Joy, as a Nutritionist and Personal Trainer, become a valued friend, always ready with encouragement, advice, tips and even tasty recipes (and samples!). A year later I returned to Scotland, 30lbs lighter, still a bit of a work-a-holic, but glowing with health and a more balanced commitment to a healthier life. Joy still encourages and inspires me from across the pond. I thoroughly enjoyed working with her and will be a priority booking anytime I return to Toronto. I highly recommend her to you.”
Irene M, Healthcare Business Development Director
“I have been a client for two years over which time my fitness and health have improved dramatically. I lost 20lbs, changed my diet, stopped smoking completely and continue to increase my level of fitness and physical activity. Joy helped me to make changes to my diet by providing menu ideas and education about different foods and how they are processed by my body. I now know what I should eat, how much and when. Joy also provided guidance on the use of supplements to improve my overall health. She encouraged me and assisted me in making difficult lifestyle changes. Tobacco is one of the hardest addictions to get free of because nicotine is so addictive and cigarettes are engineered to deliver nicotine and class A carcinogens into the bloodstream so efficiently. Detoxing from many years of tobacco addiction was a long process which required Joy’s special knowledge and guidance. When it comes to fitness, Joy is an excellent motivator. She makes exercise fun and pushes me to reach my potential. I did very little physical activity before I started training with Joy and now I do regular resistance training, run half marathons, do long distance cycling and am currently training to become a competitive swimmer. If you are looking to transform yourself by getting rid of bad habits and making better choices, I highly recommend Joy’s array of wellness services as a way of developing a happy and healthy lifestyle.” Sydney S, Vice President Operations
“Living on my own and working long hours I had no idea how to cook or what food to buy, I always ended up eating a bowl of cereal for dinner. Joy introduced me to the wonderful world of fast healthy meals. By Joy taking me grocery shopping, and then showing me how to cook (for one person), it completely changed my way of eating and I have more energy than ever before.”

Client Love on Corporate Workshops
“I recently attended a talk given by Joy McCarthy, Nutritionist & Fitness Coach. The talk was given in a corporate setting with about thirty attendees. The purpose of the talk was to provide the group, of mixed levels of health and fitness, with information to make them healthier, happier employees based on Joy’s philosophy: “eat well | live well | be well.
I found Joy to be a total delight. She was outgoing, enthusiastic, playful, humorous and most important extremely informative. Joy presented a large number of useful tips to quickly and easily improve ones health and well being. The information was simple and easy to follow. Joy gave concrete examples and visually clear examples of her insightful recommendations.
Although I have been a fitness volunteer for over 25 years at the YMCA of Greater Toronto and have as a result, attended many trainings and workshops over that time period, I still found Joy’s information to be topical, current, informative and very very useful. She certainly is an example of eating well, living well and being well.” Sid F, Sales & Marketing Manager
Joy recently conducted a wellness seminar for a group of professional women at our office. She was incredibly knowledgeable and presented us with information that was meaningful, well-researched, and relevant for us an audience. Joy was engaging and facilitated a great discussion. Most importantly, she provided very realistic suggestions: her list of ten tips is actionable and will help us go far towards improving our health and well-being. Nina M, Associate Consultant
Your visit to our office last month was sincerely appreciated by all staff! Your presentation was lively, intuitive, very knowledgeable and certainly held everyone’s interest regardless of their age and health condition. Your information had a huge impact not only on morale but on health matters in general and sparked some very serious and positive changes. I understand that many, including myself, are also now following your Facebook and Tweets. Thank you and looking forward to the next one. Ryan G, President, Insurance Company
